There are waves of Melatonin wafting through the air this week as the season changes to fall.

The drowsiness that has overcome my week is unparalleled. All I've wanted to do is cozy up in bed with a book and drift into dreamy sleepland for as long as my rowdy children will allow. All I need is one paragraph in a book, any book, and I can assure you that I will be fast asleep within a few short minutes.

Perhaps I'm getting sick.

Or, maybe it's the chill in the air that pushes me under my covers each afternoon at Bubba's naptime.

By chance it may have been those two nights in a row earlier in the week, up until 2am dancing, dancing and dancing the night away.

Surprisingly, this is the first week that I made every single one of my planned meals. And boy were they good. And easy to make in a haze.

Ah ha, I have connected the dots. I have put my finger on the exact reason for the drowsiness - cooking and dancing, dancing and cooking. Appropriate.
