It’s Friday night Good Friday and it’s a warm quiet night except for the sounds of the peepers. We are settled in for the night my son is fast asleep a very busy week and early morning to tomorrow. My husband and I are content after a meatless supper and watching our favorite religious movie on this day, The Son of God .Going to finish enjoying it .have a great night everyone.
Today our friend came back , she was roaming around our woods and front yard during the fall time . My daughter and I where driving up our driveway yes up our driveway is like a small country road I will have to post a photo sometime. So as we are driving she pasts in front of us thankfully a good space away and went into the edge of our woods we stopped to get a picture .she was beautiful she just stood their wagging her little tail and happily staring at us there was no fear in her eyes I think he knew she was safe. I can’t tell you how long we sat there admiring her this beautiful animal God created and blessed us with her presence again it seems she made our home hers for the moment because as of this evening she is still roaming and eating on our land and staring as the kids coming and goings in there cars. This amazing beautiful doe. we are so happy to have her back she brings a good energy with her .I hope she stays around a bit longer .
In my post last night I had mentioned I had a conversation with my son. and I had said it didn’t go as well as planned well I have decided my son is a teenager and definitely does not or is in defiance, does not have a clue about life okay yes he is 16 maybe very social has a lot of drive… focus but maturity not. Okay yes we have all been 16 and we lived in our own worlds and we thought life was so great and fun and we thought we knew everything and our parents we looked at them like they where aliens ….well that was the look I did towards my son. Nothing I said clicked nothing I said was right ,he contradicted himself through out the conversation. I was dumbfounded and knew our talk was going in circles and I didn’t know who was chasing who. I stopped talking just let it go and he went in his room . I pondered the thought over and over in my head the one thing he said that kept slapping me in the face was I qoute “You ask so much of me” “your always telling me to get a better job” it’s always about money I need to concentrate on school and sports ,okay one his father and I only ask for respect when he walks into the house and good grades . and yes we want him to do good with his sports and get into a good college so he can run for them and he is so good at it but its hard to take him after he gets so tired he is exhausting after because he is ugly that I cannot take.who doesn’t want that and we only say things about his job because he his always complaining about money and his father and I feel he wants to hang out with his friends every night and eat out in which case he contradicted himself when he said we do not do that as much now and I only need enough money for gas. yeah okay that’s why when this weeks Spring vacation is here he will be going out and why should we have to pay for that when we pay for everything else and he is able to work. hmm is he thinking of other parents…what is it with these kids and their drama they do not have a clue about life I know my son does not. where did we go wrong or his this just the teenage hormones and friends talking ? so I think as much as I do not want to it’s time to back of and let him eat his words and fail a bit. This is going to be very painful to watch.
Life.. teenagers ..changes it’s enough to make a parent crazy. I know all have been through it and survive but my day we worked for what we wanted we asked for nothing and we got it we where grateful .this generation just seems so arrogant and my Son tries to make it be that it is me …oh no it is not and I am going to show him. wow that was a rant..hahaha okay guess I needed to get that out . Sorry Everyone. Just been a crazy ride on this new journey of being a teenager .Yes have an adult daughter but never went through any of this with her but they are 5yrs apart and so different from one another. Does anyone have any advice to give ? would love some.
Tonight I have this strange feeling , almost an uneasy feeling maybe its because the temps have dropped dramaticlly so one I’m freezing and its making my head feel out of it .or maybe it was the the little talk my son and I had and it did not turn out to well ..so it not sitting well with me. …but that is for another day…anyways we had the living room window open a bit for Miss Abagail she loves looking out at night and listening to the peepers are they loud tonight they have been half the day ..isn’t that unusual for them to be out during the day? My husband and I where relaxing in the living room watching TV when we both looked at one another and he turned the TV down. My husband was like did you hear that It was a whistle sound okay as much as I did not want to agree I did it was so eerie. I told him the other night while we where sleeping well he was I was trying too I heard that same noise at first I thought it was him he can make some weird noises in his sleep he laughed at the remark. but it wasn’t when I heard it again It sent chills up my spine and I pulled the covers up closer to my head,,,, but then it was gone .I hate night sounds especially when your house is surrounded by woods. Does anyone know if there is a bird or animal that makes that strange whistle noise at night. It’s just so unusual for us we have never heard that before.
ts night time and from my open window I can hear the peepers thier especially vocal tonight must be because of such a warm day. I sit here proud if you read this afternoons post my son had his 1st spring track meet and he did exceptually well he came in first in all his events believe me I’m not bragging and he is not bragging about it he works so hard does this for himself andhis team he has just alwasy had the drive he was a late walker and lets say when he learned he ran everyone always had to tell him walking feet.well no more.. running it is hahaha and I couldn’t be prouder .Great start to the season.
Today Spring track season begins .My Sons first meet sadly I will be missing this one where the track is located it’s to much walking for this hip to bare …I will catch the next one that will be at his school. So proud of him he has worked so hard he is such a great runner sadly he puts so much into it that its not a pleasant evening for about 2hrs after it because his body and mind. Need to relax ,he is so spent after these meets but it’s a adrenaline rush before them….such a vicious cycle . I will have food ready for him when he is done . then it will be homework and bed . life of a teenage athlete.
Hello today my photo Monday is my yard yes in the woods …The photo to your left is my back Yard and the photo to the right is driving along my driveway to the front yard so yes a lot of woods. Slowly the scenery is greening up and starting to look like Spring . The temps is a different story it feels like the middle of June yes very warm as I write this I am on my deck sitting in the shade because the sun was a bit to warm for me and my laptop. Sadly the birds are not out as loud today which is strange .Last night we actually heard peepers and my daughter and I sat on the deck and looked at the stars for a bit . that was nice and relaxing a bit chilly .I think tonight will be warmer for that.well enjoy everyone as I catch some more sun before I get our supper going.
