Tonight was one of those nights that was purrfect. I came home around 6pm just like most nights, read my book on the couch for about 30 minutes, finished it, then took a quickie nap – with a mason jar full of home-brewed ice tea in hand. The people who know me closest know that I can fall asleep faster than you can blink an eye – seriously.
