I needed that...and check out my new bag!

Good morning everyone,

Yesterday was a bit wetter than I would have liked, but at least it stopped raining for the ride home. And today is looking pretty good. A high of 26C and a mix of sun and clouds. It's the perfect day to go for a run and a swim-I'll see if I can pull both off.

I have no idea why, but I didn't have a very good sleep on Sunday night. You would think that after planning for, setting up and cleaning up the bbq, I'd be ready for a nice long sleep...I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow, but I woke up again around 4am and could not get back to sleep. I think it might have been a combination of getting a lot of sun-my body was so hot that I woke up in a pool of sweat and drinking beer. I don't know why, but these days when I have a few beers, I don't get a very good night's sleep. Does anybody else experience that? Or is just me?  Well, apparently it's not just me. Doctors agree that drinking alcohol can disrupt your normal sleep patterns. What happens is that you fall into a deep sleep right away and skip the REM sleep that your body needs to feel refreshed. Then, we have the REM sleep later, which is why we sometimes wake up after a few hours. So, maybe I was just too tired...anyhoo (old, dorky English-don't use it unless you're a dork like me! Ha ha!) last night I fell asleep around 10 and slept straight through till just before 6, so I had over 7 hours sleep and I feel like a million bucks today!

And I also got a new bag...I've had the same messenger bag since I came to Hiroshima. I know it may not sound like a long time, but that bag has had a rough life. It is used in all sorts of weather, 365 days a year-through rain, typhoons, sun, wind, and snow. It is thrown on the ground, sat on, step on, overstuffed (I once carried a case of beer and a bag of rice in it at the same time!) and it lasted a long time! But it was getting a little dirty and it started to smell a bit on rainy days. So, I bought another one from the same company!

What do you think?

Actually, it doesn't matter what you think...I think it's awesome...hmmm...I also think I'm too old to use the word 'awesome'...ha ha! 

Have a great day!
