I got up shortly after 4 this morning. I had strange dreams overnight. So far I have had some breakfast and gotten things together to make a casserole for tonight. Oh, I have also showered and dressed for work. I may sit quietly in the dark for a while, or I may get up and move furniture. You just never can tell with me. Have a great Monday!

The kitties have all had breakfast, I haven't yet. I probably do need to eat something because my blood sugar was only 64 when I woke up today.

@myklj999 Something with sugar is surely the best to bring it up quickly.

Now that you mention strange dreams I also had a very weird one, I should watch what I eat and drink before going to sleep.

I did not eat anything strange last night, I wondered about that. Other than a fresh peach someone had given my sister. It was absolutely the best tasting peach I have had in years.

@LadyDuck I think sometimes I wake up early because I am hungry.

@GardenGerty I am not hungry, I usually wake up early because of weird dreams or nightmares.

I dreamt that someone had stolen my bank cards from my wallet - but they had managed to put the wallet back in my bag so I didn't notice anything until I tried to pay for shopping at a supermarket. I did check when I woke up - luckily it wasn't true.

@Fleura Deceiving elves. I wonder were they responsible for the Apples of Democracy dream I recorded here yesterday or the day before.

Who gets up at 5 AM? Oh, you do. I got up at 9:30 to go to my physical therapy appointment. It lasted ten minutes (took longer to get in the hospital with the covid protocols than that! ), got released from physical therapy, and I’m having lunch. I’ll take a walk and enjoy the day….or go home and take a nap. You never know with me, either.

Hope that you have a great Monday too. I had an odd dream a couple nights ago, can't remember what it was about now. I know I told Mike about it and he laughed.

I had one that was scary that I would love to forget. I also had another one, probably work related, that I cannot remember now.

The pandemic has changed many people's dreams-- giving them "odd" ones. There is even a book about the phenomenon titled "Pandemic Dreams" by psychologist Deirdre Barrett. I haven't yet read it, but it sounds like it might be worth a look. Personally, I've had some rather odd dreams during the past few months. Given the nature of some of them, I would say that the pandemic has certainly worked its way into my sleeping hours.

The dream was not pandemic related that I can tell. It was suitable to be a horror story or movie, and I never read those types of books or watch those movies. I do not doubt, however that people are having pandemic dreams.

@GardenGerty The sci fi movie "Oxygen" was one that gave me nightmares a couple weeks ago. Horror movies, on the other hand, generally don't affect my sleep.
