now i lay me down to sleep ...




well, i would ....

but i have a kitty on my lap ..
a glass of red eyetalian wine ...
music by the beatles ..
(my spouse bought the whole boxed set ...)

who needs to be alert and awake on a monday morning anyway?

only nerds.

dianne said...

Thats an interesting photo or painting there Foamy, it looks old and I like the female figure as seen through the glass of the open window.
I often have a kitty on my lap as well and I would more than likely doze off if I was comfortable and tired enough...I'm not keen on Monday mornings at all!
Have a good school week dear friend. :-) ♡

foam said...

little lamb,
actually, i do ... been awake and not so alert since 5:30 am .. :)

tink,
yep, nerd ... c'est moi .. :) ..

dianne,
purring kitties on laps are soothing ..

and this is a photo of a sculpture i took this summer at the hirshhorn in washington, dc. i need to go find a link for it later on today.

thanks for the well wishes for the week .. :)

Rolf said...

Well, from my point of view, you don't need. When I'm up and alert in the morning you can sleep much longer.

Eyetalian!

Cheers!

SJ said...

Only if you are driving or diving. You wouldn't want to fall asleep under water would you?

foam said...

rolf,
yeah .. but it still only adds up to about 5 1/2 hours of sleep a night .. :)

sj,
oh! i'm supposed to be alert for driving?

Foamy my friend, at first I thought it was a portrait of you but then realized it couldn't possibly be true. I loved the poem about the witches brew. I have had a few bosses I would like to give it to also.

Aunty Belle said...

Nice Monday!!

Kudos to smart hubby.

SJ said...

BTW that woman was framed.

Pamela said...

We still have our daughter's cat.
She won't want to go home ...

(and she woke me this morning when I wanted to sleep...... MEOWWWW, YOOOOOOOOOOwl. I was so mad)

foam said...

/t.
yes, it is a very cool sculpture by
kienholz (sp?), both the husband and wife team.

irishman,
good to see you here again!
the angle from which i took the photograph of the sculpture almost makes it look like a real person is sitting there. plus, i only had my cellphone to take pictures with which flattens images ..

aunty belle,
why, thank you.
yes, he is smart, but i'm not going to tell him you said so.

sj,
absolutely, she certainly was and is .. :

foam said...

pamela,
yeah .. that can be so annoying. there's been plenty a kitty around here that found itself flying through the air because it tried to wake slumbering human beasts ...

Devin said...

kitties on the lap are very soothing indeed! I do not drink anymore -but would an oxycodone and a Xanax count?:-) best to you as always and I hope you enjoy your week!!

X. Dell said...

Despite the sunnyness of the window, I sense a certain sadness in this. Was this what you were going for?

boneman said...

I think if you took it from the Hirshhorn, they might want it back, so, be careful with it, OK?

dianne said...

It is an amazing sculpture, it is so life like, I sense some sadness there as well.
I wonder what she is thinking and what she is looking for, it reminds me of an old hospital bed, is the mirror broken or has the silver coating on the back oxidised, giving the impression of something missing from the reflection of her life? ♡

Mariana Soffer said...

I loved your post, is very poetic, I love the opening lines. And also the image is amazing, it reminds me of a painting by hopper where he potraits his aging wife.
So you are right mornings are for sleeping not for staying awake or alive.

HOW ARE YOU DOING?
INTERESTING PIC THIS ONE AND ON THE POST BELOW...
HOW WAs the dinner party?

it's been totally hectic over here, but the weather was still phantastic and we got lots done and now it's harvest-time...
we've got so many black berries and pears...


ROLF, if you see this, could you send me a mail???

puerileuwaite said...

If I had a Kitty on my lap, I would never leave the bar.

chickory said...

funny how the arm is positioned it looks like a sagging breast. the hirshorn. any photos from the sculpture garden?

foam said...

chickory,
i got a few photos from the hirshhorn sculpture garden this year, some of which i posted on my fb site .. :)

pug,
aha .. i see .. you're one of those ....
one of those with a Hello Kitty in the bar fetish ..

sara sofia,
YUM, fresh blackberries and pears ..
yeah, i understand..
when darkness is just around the corner, you have to take advantage of as much light and sun as possible.

mariana,
from this angle it does look a bit like a hopper. it only looks like a painting though due to the poor quality of my cell phone camera ..
actually my cell phone camera makes almost everything look like a painting.
but i have to disagree with you on morning are not for staying alive. despite not wanting to get up, i'm always definitely glad to wake up alive .. lol ..

dianne,
i'm going to have to provide a link that shows the sculpture from a different angle ... it is real interesting.

no worries, boneman ....
i'm keeping it safe out back in the shed ....
oh, wait .. i don't have a shed ..

x.dell,
perhaps a sense of melancholy. i'm gonna provide a link to the sculpture where we can see it from a different angle. it definily is unusual .. and perhaps sad ..

devin,
lol .. painkillers? whatever rocks your boat, man ..
i'd rather imbide in the occasional alcoholic beverage. painkillers freak me out. i know that based on taking them after 2 surgeries...

Middle Ditch said...

Wow! The whole box set? He spoiled you rotten and me .... green with envy

Mariana Soffer said...

I am glad foam that you are always happy to get up, I am not yet, but I am on the way to get there, and let the depression behind.

Hugs

foam said...

middle ditch ..
lol .. it's more like he's spoiling himself rotten .. :)
but i do get pleasure from it myself.

mariana,
well, you know .. i'd rather be able to get up then not get up ever again .... so, therefore, i'm happy to get up.

foam said...

mariana,
if you are depressed i hope you are able to shake it soon. it can be debilitating .. XO

Ruela said...

wow!
I mean wow, not every day you see that, huh?
Anyway, we all have our little dietary quirks-I mean you and I eat ... Wow, HAHAHA!

Sorry ;))

Ricardo said...

My sleep has been way too out for order as of late. I just don't know why.

Aunty Belle said...

Hope y'all ain't got rain up theah-- unless it is in time to assure gorgeous leaves!

foam said...

richardo,
it's a drag when sleep is illusive and out of sinc ...

aunty belle,
it's been raining nonstop for a couple of weeks it seems ....
presently we're under a flash flood watch ...

Ruela said...

you are at fb?
can't find you.

foam said...

ruela,
that's cause i'm mysterious and elusive even on fb ..
:P

Ruela said...

You are very mysterious ;)





That picture window look huge and elegant ;)
v. nice.

dianne said...

Thanks... :) ♡

The Phosgene Kid said...

Looks like she's out of toilet paper...

..................... said...

phos, yeah ..

dianne,
:)

Sarah Sofia Ganborg said...

JUST CHECKING IF ANYTHING WAS NEW... STILL PAINTING OVER HERE... BUT IT'S NOW GETTING COLD FOR REAL... STILL THERE'S SUNSHINE...

foam said...

i'm sure it's getting cold over there. at least the sun is still out. but your comment reminds me to birng in a houseplant which is still outside. i heard we might get frost.
and, as you can see, nothing new over here .. ever .. really ..
:)







awwwww maaaaaan ... is it time to go to bed yet?
yawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwn .....

Indigo said...

Groovy :)

boneman said...

Bit of the cold whisked through these parts.
Hope it misses you because it carried with it storms and dog-scaring thunder/lightning displays stretched across the sky.

Then again, like the guy with no shoes, eh?
Lee mentioned the rain longingly.

You are very wise.
I admire you.
