About Last Night

 

Last night I couldn't
get to sleep
and lay in bed
counting sheep.

I got all the way
to number ten
when one run off
and I had to start again.


Featured: A new cushion.

I use the blink very slowly ten times trick. It usually works, but not always for the entire night. Cutest poem and lovely cushion and an excellent way to use up the stash.
