Greatly needed this morning for medicinal purposes. (Bad cat night. We have one that gets bored easily and wants us to wake up and keep her company.) I am generally not a huge fan of mate flavor—too sharp and smoky—but I heartily endorse its wakey, wakey effects. A little milk camouflages it and brings out the tea part of the blend enough for me to get it down.

(While flipping through reviews of Morning Thunder, I found an old one that included a recipe for fake ChocoMate. May have to give that a whirl.)

Sorry you didn’t get a good night’s sleep!

Superanna’s husband gave her a star projector for Christmas – you know, dreamy lights and moving constellations projected in the bedroom to promote relaxation and peaceful slumber. The cats think it is a giant multidot laser pointer, and reacted accordingly. No peaceful slumber was acquired.

Minnie watches TV (the 6 a.m. exercise show for senior adults is one of her favorites) and approves my wardrobe choices when I’m laying out what to wear to work. If there is no notable nighttime neighborhood activity to observe in the wee hours, then she just wants to talk.

I didn’t sleep well last night either. I heard the cat being a cat, but I don’t think she woke me, I think my budding migraine did. It wasn’t until she decided to slip into bed with me and was purring against my back that I started to drift off again… and then the alarm went off for work. Sigh.

No one will ever be able to invent a substitute for purring cat heating pads.

Ashmanra, sounds like gmathis needs to get one of those star projectors and put it in another room!

Tea-sipper: great idea!

:o) Last night’s feline wake-up call was “Mom! Look! Rain!”
