I had the oddest dream and I want to record it before I loose it.

I was very recently married and spending time cuddling and having tea with my new husband. (Ok that's really strange- I have no wish to be married again) I knew his name but I can't remember it and now I can't remember the nickname I was calling him either. I do remember he was Canadian but lived close enough to the border that he had joined the US Marines. He was very polite and had quite short brown light hair. somewhat sharp features and either blue or grey eyes. He was also, obviously, fit but not bulky so that it didn't really show.

It was also a May/December thing because I remember combing my hair back in the morning and there was a lot of white in it- so much so that I was startled.

I remember us listening to music, working on the computer (looking something up- maybe about bookbinding- it seems like it was) and having tea either on a patio next to the water or the deck of a boat with another couple as well as the aforementioned cuddling. What I remember most is feeling very happy and cherished.

Annoyingly, I woke up and can't get back to sleep now.

I had some high old dreams last night. The one I can remember was about my Dad... and a guy named Mike who I've never actually met... and a menstrual pad. I was trying to sneak around and not wake anyone and every time I tried to go to bed, there was someone already in it. The phone kept ringing... with the ringtone I have set for 80s... and I couldn't find it.

There was also one right before I got up and I was telling someone no, I don't want to get up yet... and they told me "Well, you have to. Dreamtime is over." and the alarm went off.

My cold, which had been getting better and was almost gone... got a bit worse yesterday. I think it was having to go out and mull about in the snow and get my hands so cold they were aching (not the arthritis ache... the eminent frostbite ache)... and the fact that I very foolishly forgot to take my vitamin C yesterday. So I'm much better this morning and consequentially in a correspondingly better mood.

Taxes got done... the only knotty problem was her school grants... the costume got done, whew! I still have to do my own taxes which I am NOT looking forward to. Most of it will be pie but the business stuff could be nasty or at least time consuming. So I'm dreading that a bit.

Just before I woke up, the wasband showed up in my dream. It was so nasty and real that for a second I thought I was awake... and then I woke up. That d*mned man has not been allowed to invade my bedroom for years and I'm not letting him now, even in dream form. What made it so real is that he didn't look the same... his hair has gone all grey and he was limping and old-looking so it's not a memory.

I have a question for you all... I'm about halfway through quilting Merry Halloween and I should really lay out the next one to look at and decide on the quilting design... but which one to do next? The finished tops I have are
Under the cut to save your f-list )

I think I want to leave anyone lived in a pretty how town until 2nd next because if I start it when I finish Merry Halloween I won't have time to finish it this year before the County Fair and I want to enter it. Although I suppose I could enter it the next year... I think you have two years after you finish it to enter.

So please, everybody, vote for the one I should do next. It won't make my mind up entirely... but it will help me.

Tired and headachy tonight so I'll keep it short.

Couple of nice dreams last night... one was a yoga pose. I'd tell you which one except that, since I don't practice yoga, I have no idea.

The other one, I was living some where with just Emily and a guy I was involved with (don't know how involved... could be dating, could be married to) was late getting home so I locked the door and went to bed... knowing he didn't have a key. When I woke up, he was in the driveway, sitting on top of his car (on the hood). I opened the door and he had spent all night weaving a screen door (or weaving into the screen door) a door of flowers for me. It was beautiful! Lacey... made up of roses and iris and gardenias and snapdragons and I don't remember what else... I opened the door and let him come in and, whatever reason he had for being late was really really good news, too. I'll be on the look out for this guy... he's someone I've never seen before.

I had the oddest dream.

I was learning to serve tea (as part of my job) and a man came into the house. He stopped and looked at a religious picture on the way in and when he turned around, I 'recognized' him even though I hadn't ever seen him before and I hugged him and called him my 'brother'. He pulled back and kissed me... and I fainted! I came to thinking "that was like kissing God..." The woman who was my employer made him sit down... and not touch me... and grilled him on name (Francis John Jeremy... one of those funny names that is all first names... he went by John) and profession (I don't remember that) and his intentions etc. I finally had to tell him to go away, that I had to learn this before tomorrow and I'd see him after work. I wouldn't let him kiss me again (dumb subconscious!) for fear of falling out again.

It was all extremely vivid... and quite strange. I am not quite happy about how irreligious my subconscious is, either.

On a less odd note...
I made a new dish for dinner last night. Turkey tenderloin marinated with tequila and lime. Very tasty and even Emily claimed that it was delicious. Unfortunately, it came premarinated so I don't have a recipe for the marinade... sorry.

I had a horrible dream right before I woke up. I was getting married again, this time with a real wedding.. white dress and church and all. And then I realized I was re-marrying the wasband ... oh HELL no! I know what kind of a husband he is and I wouldn't go through that again for anything in the world. Scared me pretty bad.

I had the strangest nightmares last night involving quilts, zombies, college professors, a gas station and a very rich aberdeen terrier. Which is a bit of an eclectic mix to say the least.

I hate my subconscious.

I laid down for a few minutes while Elizabeth finished up a report for music class that is due tomorrow (hence the necessity of fixing the computer this morning). I'm tired enough that I fell asleep almost immediately and was dreaming almost before I closed my eyes.

I dreamed that everyone I know (and a lot of people I don't!) was filing past me in twos and laughing at me because I wasn't good enough to be with anyone. I'm bound to say that some of the combinations were... a little strange.

Now I know better than this, of course I do! First off, some of the most fabulous people I know are single or have only recently met someone after a long dry spell. Some of them are happier single. And this is not the worst of all possible fates... still being with anyone I've dated (or been married to) would be worse than being single. And I have spent all day reminding myself of all that and trying to just get on with life as it is now and not being bothered by it... and then my stupid sub-c comes along and spikes me with the same nasties I get from pop-up ads. It could at least be a little original!

I woke up from a horrible nightmare, in which I was getting married tomorrow... to someone I don't know. This is not the first time I've had this particular nightmare... but it has been many many years and it comes at a weird time. I've been thinking and realized that by the time Emily is self sufficient, my mom will be to the point of needing a companion or close to it and I'm never going to be done with family responsibilities.

I had the oddest dream, waking up. I was walking with someone looking for a particular house... and lurking about was something or someone that would "get" us if they saw us... and I noticed that it was almost time for my alarm to go off. So I started pointing my finger and the "lurkers" went away and the house got found... and it wasn't burned after all... and the person next to me turned and asked me "What the hell is going on?"

And I said "It's my dream and I have to get up so it's time for the happily-ever-afters to start."


I also have to pick up Simba on the way home from work today. His ear required surgery to fix. I'm dreading how hard this is going to hit me in the pocket. Other than that, it's back to the grind. I am going to be soooo glad when Elizabeth can ride the bus again!

I'm going to try and start selling things on e-bay again. Like I don't already have enough to do! But I need to get rid of some of the junk around here and extra money is always a good thing.

I almost missed 24 last night. I forgot it was Monday until 8:55 pm when Elizabeth reminded me to turn on the TV. This is why I don't like watching a regular show... Although 24 is really not a regular show.
