I have been asleep about four hours and am up working on garden tour stuff again. I didn't set an alarm - I'm just up because four hours is enough sleep and I just woke up. Over the years when sleep comes up and people tell me they just have to have eight hours of sleep I wonder how they manage their lives. I can't even get everything done I want to do sleeping half as much.
People have always marvelled at how I get so much done - work, volunteering, art, writing, entertaining, etc. while redoing my house and participating in events and travelling. I'm starting to think a lot of it is that I watch very little television and I don't sleep away a third of my life. Three or four extra hours a day can really make a difference.
