Day 232: Tired...

Saturday, August 20, 2011

I am so tired this evening. The rain held off until nearly 4, and except for lunch I was out in the yard most of the day, pruning, hauling branches and brush, helping Himself cut up some of the bigger branches we had cut down on Thursday.

We live about a quarter-mile from a hotel, one that has a lot of wedding receptions. There's one over there tonight, With a full band. With big amplifiers. Outdoors. How do I know this? Because if I don't have sound (music, TV, something) making sufficient noise to cover it up, I can hear it. Clearly.

It's after 10 PM. I had thought about going to bed early tonight. Hah. That ain't gonna happen. If they quit before 2 AM I'll be lucky. I wouldn't want to insist they stop the party, just that they take it indoors.


Goodnight, Sparklers...

    I am blessed with the cabability of sleeping in the middle of a brass band... the thing that wakes me at night is cat tapping with his little paw on the bedroomwindow... I have trained him that it is hopeless when the lights are out but since dog arrived ha hears him outside and starts barking...trains, planes or neihbours party does not disturb me at all...

    About that time, I would have my handy dandy , trusty dusty, EAR PLUGS in....I am so blessed to be in a QUIET neighborhood...especially for being a day sleeper! My neighbors to the West, are Hispanic, NO HABLA ENGLISH....suspect they keep a low profile for a reason! Neighbor to the East, a lone man, with 2 cats....quiet as a mouse! New neighbors across the street, seem to be empty nesters...God bless me! ha

    I hope you get some sleep. I find myself up in the middle of the night and I'm not liking it one bit!

    Is there a noise ordinance in your area? if so, maybe tomorrow you should stop by the hotel and remind them of it and that next time there might be a visit by the constable.

    What a neighbor to have! Earplugs a possibility?
