insomnia...i get it quite a lot. i could not sleep last night, and so i got up to make a pot of tea with chamomile and flor de tila (linden flower), which is supposed to help you sleep. it usually helps, so while i was sitting and drinking tea, wrapped up in blankets and kitties, i put the christmas lights on to not have any bright lights on at 3 am! it looked so very beautiful, so i snapped a shot of it. it also made me a little sad to think that i would be taking it down and putting it away. so, this was my project for the day, wrapping away our christmas mementos for another year.

It's part of the perimenopause..I don't know how old you are but...I started getting insomnia when my periods stopped 3 years ago...I'm 45. I drink sleepy time tea and when I walk sadie it really helps to make me tired..some nights it's agony to lay there and "try" so hard to sleep...Good luck with it!
