After a night sitting around a roaring fire with family enjoying good food , drinks , and much laughter and singing ( hahaha) read my earlier post about that 🙂 I did the struggle after settling down well after 1 … I woke at 6 ughh… threw the pillow over my head and fell back to sleep waking up at 9 so I guess it was time the pull myself out of bed and grab some well needed coffee before heading to the shower .. Im sit in the living room looking at the rain coming down as I’m enjoying my coffee and the news , I can’t believe the change from last night stars in the sky a beautiful fire, warm temps to 57 temps dark and rainy ,wind blowing and top it off my favorite weather lady “s last day on our channel .. I know what your thinking what ?? is she kidding ? ( hahaha) but sorry I’m not and I’m okay (hahaha) it’s just when you get use to someone on your favorite news show .. ok lame but sadly I’m just this simple 🙂 I guess one more cup of coffee is needed to start this day. Food shopping it is and then who knows maybe a good book or some Netflix after…
It was a quiet Saturday the temps here were warm and a bit humid after doing what needed to be done around the house and waiting to hear how my son was doing at his meet .I went and sat out on my deck swing and listen to whatever was making the thrashing noise in our woods. Sat there for a bit and never figured it out . My son made it into the finals for the relay race so now onto the State Championships. So very proud of him ..just the timing is not good it’s the following Sat night under the lights and his graduation is the next day so it will make for a very tiring ceremony…why do they do this… any ways so evening was here by the time the guys came home from the meet ,my Mother in -law called to tell us her sister was doing a bonfire ,now that may sound strange but her sister is a lot younger then you think hahaha my mother in- law is in her mid 60″s and her sister is in her mid 50″s so she loves to do fires so we went over with the the rest of the family had some drinks sat around the fire the sisters son plays guitar so he brought it out and getting foolish we sat their singing random songs he played. like Leonard Skyner .. John cougar , all the good oldies that’s fun to sing around a fire . As I write this I have to laugh .. if people could of saw us they would of defiantly thought we had lost our minds🙄 so as I had titled this post yes it begins , the endless bonfires I see coming this summer. If the rain hadn’t come crashing down on us I think we would have still been sitting out there.. sad it’s midnight and I’m wide awake not good .. I guess I’ll just listen to the rain as I try to settle in for the night …morning will be here soon enough..
It’s a warm Friday night the peepers are out I can just about hear them over the fans that are trying to do their jobs but it’s okay if not . I’m awake even though my hubby is fast asleep . I believe he did too much in the heat today . He had today off so it gives him a long weekend but sadly he is not one to take it easy . Yes the yard looks beautiful but it was just way to hot to fast to do all what he did. Tomorrow is my sons track and field meet he made it into the championships if he wins his races or at least makes it into the final 3 I believe he will move on to States . So it’s an early morning for him he needs to meet the team bus by 7 when they leave the events start at 10 so I’m sure my hubby will be leaving soon after him. I will not be going ,too long of a day for myself , my hip would not like the bleacher and then the standing for hours on end . My son is good about it he understands and knows my heart will be there with him ❤️ I’m so proud of him and I wished him good luck before he went to bed early tonight You never talk to him or try to before a race …hahaha he’s not a chatty morning person anyways ..unlike his mom . He never could understand how I can chat at any time of day. My daughter knows I can . So I will clean up the house , run some errands and then take sometime and relax with my book or just write, of course wait for messages from my hubby letting me know how my son is doing . So tomorrow will tell if his track season moves on one more week or not . This is surly going to be a sad moment when this season is over. I know he will run after graduating he will have to for boot camp in Oct and for now weekends throughout the summer for Army National Guards. But that I’m taking one day at a time . Need to get through Graduation .. so yes one step at a time . Well my eyes are getting heavy and I want to say my prayers before I fall asleep … so good night everyone 🙂
Tonight was beautiful the sounds of the night was peaceful but eerie with the trains whistle echoing along the mountains and river that Is home to the tracks ,the moon shined above, the photo made it look like a fool moon almost there. The little colored lights are my solar power Lilly pads floating in our fountain . I’m shocked they still worked. We have had them for a couple of yrs the peepers where out in full force they have very vocal lately . I hope you enjoyed the photos and video , yes this is a part of my world . I love spending the evening and nights out on my deck it’s very soothing and it gives my overthinking mind a break 🙄
Good Morning! enjoying my coffee while the deck has shade before the sun takes over it, when the sun is shinning down on it ,it’s unbearable sadly.. right now it’s beautiful sitting out here listening to the fountain making rippling sounds like when your near a beautiful lake and the water is flowing over the rocks. Today the sounds of a woodpeckers echoing in the woods near by . When I finally dragged myself out of bed after watching a very late movie last night I walked out to a kitchen that looked like a bomb exploded …yes morning with the men … so I just grabbed some coffee and headed out to my deck …it can it would wait.
The sky is so blue and there is s bit of a breeze it feels nice. The squirrels are running around gathering as much of the bird seed they can get before the birds come . Oh if they only knew it wasn’t for them . My daughter is sleeping in and my son must of went back to bed or is just in his room after his early morning gym. He is on his last week of classes and only has two so he goes in later then championship track practice. Soon this will be all done and he will begin his next chapter in life called growing up (hahaha) every time he has a complaint I tell him welcome to the real world it’s called growing up he just rolls his eyes at me. He has so much on his plate I think he overwhelms himself. So I keep saying to him one step at a time one day at a time and it will be less over whelming . I do not know if he takes this advice… he agrees with me.but I think to humor me. I taking my advice to get through everything . Thinking about all this is over whelming for my hubby and I as well . The last one to graduate and the baby…..
Monday evening was spent outside with my hubby him enjoying a beer and I with my book with some chatting between us and of course the sound of nature, couldn’t resist recording the sounds we heard around us , The sound of the evening was over flowing with peepers and you can hear a Cardinal also ,as we caught site of it . I put my book down and just enjoyed. With my hubby ,Such a beautiful sound.
it’s Monday and enjoying my coffee to this beautiful site.. Good Morning ☕️
