It seems I am into a sleep pattern again that is going to have to be broken even if it means taking medication one or two nights. I am simply not getting enough rest.  Yeah, I might have been able to operate on 3-4 hours sleep in my younger days, but not any more.  Nope, I NEED 6-8 with maybe a nap thrown in mid day.

I find myself waking up for NO apparent reason at 3:29 EVERY morning.   Without fail.  I think it is time for a couple doses of Tylenol PM.  Sometimes, rarely, I am able to go back to sleep but most times I just toss and turn awhile and then get up.  Not that I dont have plenty to do, but I dont want to do it before daylight.

Today I am going to go to the gym early.  Yes, I said gym.  As in exercise.  I didnt mention it before because I find it hard to fail in front of so many people.  I started back last week.  Curves here in my little town has ALL new equipment/machines/torture devices.  They are actually pretty cool and very helpful and no it isnt like having a person trainer but it will have to do.  I have to go into town almost everyday to take Rachel to work, so why not stop?  Its on my way.  And I really REALLY need to move more.  So, no promises, but I am going to give it a whirl.  Now back to the original thought.  After I go to the gym I am going to come home and tackle the rest of the book shelves and the schoolroom.  Time to get the schoolroom in order for this next term that starts in just a few weeks.  That is going to be a major undertaking.  The schoolroom is a disaster area!  AND I stole the table out of it for my work area,

so I have to think about what I am going to do about that.  The girls and I are going antiquing tomorrow so maybe I will come up with something then.  The table I stole was actually too big for the room so no great loss.  And I would really like to have a smaller round table I think.

Did I ever mention how much I like natural wood with white?  Well, I do.

And how a recipe to share.  Frankly, I don’t know what in the world some of these people were thinking “back in the day”.  Maybe they were just so excited about Jello that they thought absolutely anything would be good with it or in it.  This recipe is from one of my vintage magazines, Good Housekeeping July 1953.

Isn’t it an adorable cover?  I have considered framing it.

Now just in case you think tomato sauce and Jello sounds delish, I give you Barbecue Salad:

All I can say is “WOW”.   I will try to post you something edible tomorrow.
