When I can't sleep and I get up to do something, I need to remember that really, my body and brain are tired. It's my mind that can't stop working. So, if I want to get something done,

THINK through everything I need to do! It isn't going to happen on autopilot. Autopilot has called it a day and gone to bed.

Cleaned trap oiled and set with sardines.
Gotta coon this a.m.
Woke up to a clang and metal rattling at 1.
Went outside at 4 for coffee.
Flashlight showed 2 sets of eyes at barn. 1 set in trap. So he has help.
After a velvet tail at barn last week, I'm gunshy to go to barn at night.

Wow! Be on the lookout for it's mate. Caught the outdoor cat, on video, chasing away a snake last night. While we have plenty of poisonous snakes down here, typically the ones around here are not poisonous.
