WCW: Richard Armitage at Rest, December 13, 2017 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1124)

Though Richard Armitage and his characters are usually in motion or ready to lunge at any moment–Ha!–Richard at Rest is quite nice, too! Thanks to Jan Smith for sharing the Daniel Miller sleeping image! Holiday Cheers! Grati ;->

Thanks also to other RA/char sleeping images, sources are embedded in their  file name:

   

   

Even “faking” it.  *wink*:
         

P.S.  And some sleeping “poll questions” came to my mind, which you may ponder and/or reply to (my responses appear below each question):

  1. I can fall asleep:
    -in comfy surroundings:  soft linens, non scratchy blanket, poofy pillow under my knees, (for back support), etc.
    -before my hubby starts snoring
    1. What other accessories I need to fall asleep (setting the mood, so to speak):
      -ceiling fan running (for its white noise hum, and cooling effect)
      -mostly darkness–that Summer Eastern 5:30am first light is like an unwelcome klieg light, Ha!

    -mostly darkness–that Summer Eastern 5:30am first light is like an unwelcome klieg light, Ha!
  1. I sleep like:
    -the dead, nothing wakes me up—not even my hubby getting up several times overnight to let the dogs out, nor his snoring
  2. I have a hard time falling asleep when:
    -my tinnitus blares in my ears
    -my mind won’t shut off—especially when story ideas come to mind (which is often)
    -my hubby snores before I can get to sleep
    -I drink a cup of coffee after 7pm (the insomnia blues)
  1. My favorite/usual sleeping position is:
    -flat on my back (with that under the knees pillow)
    -Nota Bene:  During my college speech team road trip hotel overnights, my teammates would later tell me that when I rolled onto my side while I was asleep, I would curl up into a ball, tuck my flat hands under my cheek, and sometimes make squirrel like mouth  tching noises.  I’m not kidding. Ha!

,
So Nitey Nite!  Sleep tight!  Don’t let the bed bugs bite!  And pleasant dReAms!  Holiday Hugs!

 

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    1. I can fall asleep just about anywhere anytime. Going down the road (when someone else is driving), in movie theaters (Titanic was boring), Dad’s front porch swing. Heck, I’ve even been known to sleep in the break room at work, using a roll of paper towels for a pillow.
    2. Accessories – a warm blanket (can’t sleep when I’m cold) & no lights on.
    3. I sleep like the dead. Only thing that can wake me is my youngest son.
    4. I have a hard time falling asleep only when I’m really worried about something.
    5. Favorite sleeping position: on my right side, head on all 3 of my pillows, knees bent, left foot tucked under my right ankle.
    It’s interesting, but I can’t nap in my bed most of the time. If I’m ever in bed outside of when I normally sleep, it’s because I don’t feel good. Most of my napping is in the recliner.

    • Hi Lady Grayse, Thanks for your great responses! I do the crossed ankles thing, too. Though the cross happens more on my left calf on that leg due to my left heal still being tender. LOL about sleeping in the breakroom with paper towels! Giggled there. Our breakroom also serves as a conference room and sometime classroom–with people in and out all the time. My snoring would probably intrude. Ha! Thanks for sharing and Holiday Cheers! Grati ;->

    I can fall asleep:
    – Almost anywhere, as long as the room is cool and I feel cozy
    – Although lately I don’t sleep quite so well, I am often up until 3 or 4 am
    What other accessories I need to fall asleep (setting the mood, so to speak):
    – Although I can sleep in a light room, I prefer DARK. In fact, I would love a room that has no windows.
    I sleep like:
    – The dead and for, at least, 8 if not 9 hours.
    I have a hard time falling asleep when:
    – my brain starts overworking
    – I get lost in fantasy
    – If there is music playing, I either sing along or, if I hear it quietly from far away, I try to figure out what song it is
    My favorite/usual sleeping position is:
    – On my right side, both hands tucked under my cheek with my body pillow right up against my back (ok, some of the fantasy involves my pillow turning into RA spooning…😛)

    • Hi Abiwim, Great responses! If you’re having trouble getting to sleep, I wonder if you had a sleep apnea issue as I did?

      So you might check with and ENT dr, have a sleep study, see a pulmonologist, get a cpap machine, sleep more restfully, promotes more regular sleep patterns. etc.

      And an RA bed pillow is a lovely idea, but I have refrained from making one out of consideration for my in situ hubby. *wink* Ha!

      And yes, spooning is also lovely! Sigh!!! Thanks for sharing! Holiday Cheers! Grati ;)
