This doesn't happen to me very often: a sleepless night. Generally speaking, I fall asleep within seconds of hitting the pillow and wake up only intermittently for very short periods of time.
Tonight I was asleep by 9:30 p.m. and then I woke up at 12:30 a.m. and have been awake ever since! After tossing and turning for two hours, I decided to get up and read. While reading, I thought I would make a blog entry. The truth is, I am really tired, and now I'm afraid that if I lay down, I will not be able to get up in the morning. Five o'clock comes pretty quickly when you are short of sleep!
I've decided to make a cup of tea because tea both relaxes me and energizes me. My favourite teas? Irish Breakfast by Twinings, and Maritime Breakfast Tea by Just Us, which is a fair trade tea. I also like the tea I bought in Rwanda. I'm down to my last four tea bags of that, but I will be buying more this summer when I return to Rwanda. I don't imagine I will return to Rwanda a third time, so I will have to buy a huge supply, several boxes at least.
I steep my tea for four minutes, and enjoy it with a touch of President's Choice Original Soy Milk. It's the best soy milk I have ever found: has a mild taste which does not overpower the tea, and it's a nice pale colour.
