Ebb and Flow

It seems ebbing more than flowing these last few days. My energy level has dropped these last few days and it's all I can do to keep my eyes open.
We took our buddy Fred to Niki's Seafood tonight for his birthday and afterwards we drove around Birmingham and watched the sunset off to the west. There's a few coffee houses we're checking out and an art gallery that has live music.
It's been a long time since we've just driven around town in the evening when traffic is down but the city is coming alive.
It seems the character of cities change at night. I've been to New York, San Francisco, Boston, and Los Angeles, Seattle, Phoenix, and they all seem to be more exciting after twilight.
Anyhow, it was fun driving around tonight.
I hear the sleepytime tea calling my name. I think it will be an early night and I might just sleep in tomorrow to recharge my batteries.
Y'all have a great Saturday night and Sunday.


  1. I remember being in NYC on Halloween to visit a friend in the hospital. We left when it was dark out and wow...the whole city became costume freaky. Won't ever forget that. Have a good restful weekend Rick.

  2. How lovely to end your day watching the sunset!! Happy birthday to your friend!!

    Take care

  3. Recharge away! I enjoy the quiet time to recharge. Most of the time it is outside, planting is ever more enjoyable than weeding, though even that is soothing.

    Always enjoyed cities in the evening or first thing in the morning as the sun is coming up. So different than the daytime city. A different vibe, a different pace...more time to enjoy! Hope your energy level is ratcheting up for the week ahead!

    I just so happen to live outside NYC and I can say you are right. NYC is so much more fun after dark or in the early hours of morning. Rest easy!

  6. You're right about how cities change at sunset. Sounds like a fun evening.

  7. Yep - that "ebb" just grabs us from time to time.

    Somehow this never applies to little kids, as my grandson (5) just told me, "I never run out of my running." :)

    Funny thing - we were just in Birmingham last month.
    Keep on truckin' - Marsha
