Working nights has really screwed up my sleeping schedule. I went to bed at 0130, and woke up once more at 0345 this morning. I type this in the faint hope that I might eventually be able to get some rest once I clear my mind.
For some reason, when I can't sleep, I get these bizarre urges to do something domestic. (If you've ever been to our house on an evening when I'm working, you know how I feel about housework and cooking and other womanly skills.) I dye fiber, spin fiber, knit things (if I can concentrate enough to count) or feel led to cook something. Anything. Must turn on stove and make something!
So this morning, I got out the candy making supplies and was mid-way through making a batch of Cheater Fondant (Mix powdered sugar and sweetened condensed milk until it's a stiff paste. Roll into balls. Add flavoring, dip in melted chocolate.) for peppermint patties when I realized that I was out of peppermint oil. Thwarted again!
