Well, by that time, I knew I wouldn't get back to sleep, so I got up to investigate. The music was Away in a Manger. Our Christmas tree is still up and there's still Christmas decorations scattered all over the room. I went to the snow globes and their music was off. Away in a Manger now switched to Silent Night. Eventually, I ascertained that the music was coming from a Christmas tree decoration. I was surprised. I knew a few ornaments made noises, but I didn't remember any that played songs, never mind, had a repertoire of songs. O Little Town of Bethlehem gave the offending decoration away. Oddly enough, the second my fingers touched the ornament, the music stopped.
Now what? As long as I was up I read the First Meditation for Week Four, Day Five, in St. Louis de Montfort's True Devotion Consecration to Mary. I also prayed Morning Prayer.
Since I was now up for good, I thought I had better shut off my iPhone alarm. I also saw, as I picked up my phone, that my scrabble partner had made her move during the night. So I played my tiles. She immediately placed her tiles. She's up at 4:00 AM!
So we played scrabble.
I did de Montfort's Second Meditation.
I gave myself a manicure.
I finished reading Life of Pi.
I wrote this post.
Now it's time to get ready for the day. I'm going to a T.O.P.S. workshop today and I'm driving. "Lord, protect my passengers because I'm pretty tired."
