Better Than Nothing

I don’t think I can throw my sleeping schedule off for one  day. It is Saturday and I have woken up at the crack of dawn as every other day; but today is different. I have to be able to stay awake for my twelve-hour shift tonight starting at eight.

So most of the afternoon I have spent tying to nap, but didn’t do a real good job of it. I have decided to make a pot of coffee and put it in my coffee warmer and take it with me tonight. I am also going to take a few snacks.

I don’t normally eat snacks at bedtime but this is going to have to be one of those times I do. Eating will help me stay a wake or do me in, right? So after a few hours of laying there and maybe sleeping an hour; I got up and poured myself a cup of coffee.

I sort of feel like I have been rung through a ringer trying to prepare myself for tonight. I looked outside the back window and everything looked so bland. The trees and the grass are both in the same colors of neutral tones.

Then I saw movement. I opened the curtains wider and saw what I believe are two gophers. Correct me if I am wrong, I don’t mind. Well my mind snapped the alive switch on and I ran and got my camera. I couldn’t take the time to set-up my other camera that would have taken better shots. I was afraid those two would scamper off.

I believe that these beauties gave me a better jolt of coming awake then my own coffee. Here are the two photos. Sorry I couldn’t get closer and better, but the motto is better than nothing.
