What I Do When I Can’t Sleep

I woke up way too early today for no reason. Well, technically Haddie thrust her head/whiskers into my face, but that’s not unusual. I’m normally able to pull the covers over my head and fall back asleep. Not this morning.

So what did I do with all this found time? Did I go to the gym or out for a run along the river as our friend Dorian of Your Daily Cute might? Did I diligently work on my overdue review of A Street Cat Named Bob? Allow myself the luxury of some creative writing? Perhaps organize the kitchen junk drawer? Negative on all counts.

I made over-sized Petie-head print outs. Yup. You heard me right.

Apparently this is what, at 7am, seemed like a good use of my time. I was particularly excited as I’d invested in decal paper last week with the thought of making Petie-head decals.

But the printer wasn’t cooperating and stopped printing Petie’s head right after his eyes. So I made the best of it (the complete head is on regular paper).

Petie was unimpressed.

Still only 9:14am. What to do next…..Haddie heads?!

Are there any unusual projects you’ve undertaken when you can’t sleep? Do tell, I need some inspiration!

    The best part of the day is getting up too early and No One Knows!

    Oh cool! What kind of printer do you need to print these? They look huge!

  6. Oh! That’s so much fun! Although I admit I’d rather nap ;-)

    Saw your video about your raindrop fountain. Have you seen my handmade, foodsafe, ceramic cat fountains? I think you’ll be pleased.

    I am sad to say my creativity does not compare. When I should be sleeping, I either resort to household tasks I didn’t get done during my typical waking hours or I post pictures to Facebook or other useless entertaining tasks. I am intrigued by the Petie head decals, though. I may have to attempt something similar for my house.
