Another previously posted pick of fall. Taken up on a trail of North Lake. This year I have not had any time to go hiking. Actually today I awoke at 3 am and felt great...forced my self to go back to sleep,,,reawoke at 7am with the help of the alarm and I feel like crap,,,not sure why...but I need to go back to bed and try it again at 11 am,,,perhaps my electo-lytes are off,,,to much or too little potassium,,or carbs,,,who knows. Well I rested for a hour,,didn't fall asleep need to just shake what have ever bit me in the but. Today is a nice day here in the North East. I decided to just take most of it off and enjoy my day. perhaps that shall help. I am so over whelmed with all the clutter that has taken over my house. {J} tried his best to put things away,,,,Putting plates on bowls in the pantry,,,finally fixed that. Now I will work on the linen closet and see what treasures I can find in there. The linen closet is all the extra stuff that we don't use on a daily bases,,,,It is way in the front spare bedroom of the house and I haven't looked in there in 5 or so years,,,so I can probably throw all of that crap out.
