to sleep, perchance to dream

I came home bone-tired and decided to take what I thought was just a cat-nap, but wound up becoming something akin to the prelude to hibernation.

Meh, I still feel tired, somehow. This has taught me that sometimes a nap can actually leave you feeling worse. It's all in the timing -- you can't overdo it.

At least I woke up to good news -- the boyf was out scouring the liquidation sales at Circuit City and found "Rock Band 2" on sale for 40% off. Yay! It has "PDA" by Interpol and other awesomely awesome songs I can't wait to "perform."

*Yawn.* Ironically, although I slept too much, I am feeling sleepy again now. As soon as I finish up here, I think I'm going to wash my face and climb back in bed.

I'm half-hopeful I'll have the bird dream again. I'm not someone who normally remembers her dreams, as sleep is a nebulous limbo-world for me and I'm an incredibly deep sleeper, but this afternoon I dreamed a wonderful dream -- I was standing in a field with waving green grass swaying in the wind, and in the shimmering distance of the evening sky I could see a flock of birds flying into the blaze of the setting sun, their shapes stark black V's against the canvas of sky.

It was a very simple dream -- that was all there was to it. But I want that dream again so bad, it almost hurts, because it gave me such a feeling of well-being and contentment. I think I may have even woke up smiling.

I know what you mean by not remembering dreams... I remember maybe one per year. I love those dreams that just leave you feeling so full and content... Sigh...

Dont ya just hate that when you wake up froma good dream? Well, that is like you said, if you can remember it. I've had a few of those dreams where they just stick with you and leave a lingering feeling. It's bliss and then its gone.

Your dream sounded so peacefull and content. Loved it.

And I'm all about the knaps but like you said also..the key is at the right time.

Tierra, have you ever tried to go back to sleep and continue the same dream? I've only been able to do this once, and it was the best...

Rock band 2! Woot!

Glad your still resting!

I love happy dreams that I can go back to sleep and keep dreaming about what I love! It's happened to me lots!

But, on the same note.. I hate it when it's bad.. and then I wake up, and after that I go back to sleep and I'm back with the bad nightmare...

I was thinking exactly that (above) when I read your post. Sometimes you have such great dreams you try and go back to them -every once in awhile it actually works - ahhhhhhhh

I am just jealous that you sleep deeply. I have been a light sleeper lately and do not feel fully rested. Ugh

Glad you are feeling better from your cold.

Keep dreaming:D
