Didn't sleep as well last night as the night before. Got up once to pee, and woke up again at 5:45 when I felt something drip onto my hand. Turned out to be a nosebleed! I got it stopped after a few minutes, and went back to sleep till Nougat got me up at 8. Went back to bed after we went out and she had her breakfast, and slept till almost 10.
Changed the sheets this morning, and groomed Nougat while I listened to my radio shows. Watched last week's episode of "Colony" (love being able to fast forward through the commercials), then showered and put the laundry in the washer.
Not a very exciting day, but a fairly productive one. Beautiful day out, too. Sunny and in the 70's. I sat outside with Nougat for awhile. While I was in the shower, Mom took her outside for awhile, too.
She was so cute when I went out with her. The last few days, it's been kind of chilly out, so in the afternoons, when the sun is hitting the patio, I've been moving the chair I sit on into the sunshine where it's warmer.
This afternoon, Nougat, whining and whimpering, (she hates when I move the chair), grabbed the chair leg and tried to drag it by herself into the sunlight! I didn't say anything about moving the chair, in fact, I'd been ready to sit where it was in the shade. SHE decided it should be moved! Sometimes she is scary-smart!
Last night, I had a desire for hot cocoa. We have some Ghirardelli hot cocoa mix that I bought for Brother for Christmas, so I asked if he'd mind if I had some. I forgot that Mom bought me a pouch for Christmas, too, so I could've just opened that one, but it seems silly to have two pouches open.
Anyway, not only did Brother not mind my using 'his' cocoa mix......he went ahead and made it for both of us. Even added a touch of chocolate, almond extract, and some whipped cream. Boy was it good!! (I wouldn't've gone to all that trouble.....I'd've heated some milk in the microwave, added the cocoa mix and been done with it. His was obviously much better than mine would've been)
The wash should be almost done and ready to throw in the dryer, so I will end this entry here and go take care of the laundry. Don't have much else to write about anyway.
