Happy ,Simple , Things, …

It’s a late Friday morning enjoying my coffee with strawberry cheesecake flavor creme.. after laying in bed a bit longer enjoying the warmth of the covers after checking my phone and seeing it showed freezing rain this morning . I didn’t feel the need to rush to get up.

Grabbing a hot shower finally I came out and enjoyed my coffee and the news .. a busy Friday morning in the news. Valentines Day has come and gone … laying in bed last night after my hubby and I and my daughter all settled in early her and I still recovering and my hubby starting to feel ill. I was going through my blog when around 10:00 my cell rang and appearing on my screen was my son on a mountain after hiking up it ..staring back at me. I couldn’t answer fast enough lol! I said hi and and a man replied back to me (no matter how many times I hear his voice it still amazes me how he has grownup so fast where did this time go so quickly.. ) hi did I wake you or dad ? Of course not even if he did I’d never tell him ๐Ÿ™‚ he asked if his dad was sleeping and I told him to listen facing the phone in the direction of my snoring hubby (hahaha) he did his snicker and said yep. My poor hubby the things I do to him … we talked for 40mins it was nice ..he doesn’t call much because he feels no privacy ..but being that they had changed rooms once again last night he got his original roommates back that are older mature and understand about family and yes talking to your mom hahaha . He wished me a happy Valentine’s Day and asked what or if we did anything . He knew I’ve been sick and knows how simple I am anyway ..that any moment spent with just family is enough. He told me how he was getting a cold and I heard coughing from his buddies in the back ground .. it’s everywhere…. he said he would push through has a four day weekend being it’s Presidents Day holiday here in the States. So he welcomes some down time. Along with all of them on the base. It was really nice to talk with him hear his voice . It will be strange when he comes home. Has a lot on his mind .. oh he is my child hahaha, after getting off the phone with him I settled into some sleep.

Today I will putter around was going to try to get to the Post Office but not going to play with the ice that has coated my steps and driveway . Hopefully tomorrow. My daughter is still sleeping doesn’t have to work until late afternoon so happy she is resting she needs it. I guess it’s time to do a few things my coffee cup is now empty that being said have a good day everyone .๐Ÿ™‚

A quiet Valentines Day…

My hubby had work and my daughter as well especially with her working in the floral department and it being Valentines Day she had to be in at 8:00 so at 7:30 I heard the front door shut . I laid there in bed taking in the quietness of the house after a actual restful night sleep after going to bed with a tickle making me cough and dreading how the night would be .. but thankfully it lessened but an hour after getting up and grabbing a shower it started up again …๐Ÿ™„

I grabbed some coffee oh my what a treat it was ..my daughter had bought strawberry cheesecake flavor coffee creme .. I know probably sounds a bit gross but it’s so delicious . So I enjoyed my coffee while catching up on my morning show. And reading the lovely card my hubby left me on the table to be found when I woke. The rest of my day was spent with some light laundry tasks and kitchen cleanup . Then knowing we would treat ourselves with takeout for dinner there was no worries there. I settled in with my shows relaxing while the washing machine carried on. And chatting with my daughter who said they were having lulls in being busy and was not feeling well couldn’t wait to come home and just relax . Her boyfriend working tonight she was okay with so she could rest.. they had spent the last two days together and their not big into the whole Valentines Day thing they believe we should love like this every day. Hmm I guess my hubby and I did something right and his parents as well (hahaha) so she got out of work for 5 and I ordered her food as well and the three of us enjoyed and spent time together chatting and her and I eating some chocolates after our meal because she bought a box of candy that was half priced now. I picked out the orange cream filled and the coconut filled candies my favorite ones.

We chatted with my son off and on while he was on I sent him a photo of the sunset tonight and told him it was for him he said that was nice. He never brought up Valentines Day and so I let it be .. he’s on a Army Base and I’m sure the least of his thoughts at the moment. It was nice to actually say we were all together tonight yes my son away but a text away ,my daughter enjoying food and conversation with my hubby was nice a nice quiet Valentines Day . Simple and most important with my family.

Now it’s 9:30 and my daughter and Miss Abigail are settled down in her place she was tired and ready to settle in bed as well as my hubby and I who is not feeling a 100 percent. My son off for the moment but said he would say goodnight when he shuts his phone off for the night. Hopefully I can keep my eyes open .. it’s 9.30 here ..Missouri 8:30 and phones go off at 9 ,formation I’m sure is right now .. then sleep at 9 . All and all a simple day it was and I couldn’t ask or want for anything more. ๐Ÿ™‚

Love letters..

Tomorrow is Valentines Day ,I have not been able to get out to get my hubby a card or a gift ,I told him after Im better I would , being the man he is he is not too worried about it….But I am it’s my favorite thing to do is get him things especially picking out cards . So the next best thing is a homemade card or love letter for my hubby .While he was resting after cleaning up the snow , I pulled out the beautiful stationary He had bought me for Christmas it has a shadow of mountains so lightly printed on the paper I thought it was perfect. He loves the outdoors , hiking , running .I wrote him a letter and then decorated it with my colored pencils and my daughter is grabbing a heart recess peanut buttercup on her way home from work to go with it . He loves Recess peanut butter cups so when we settle for bed tonight I’ll place both by the coffee pot and he will have it and something to let him know I didn’t let the day just go by. Over the weekend when he went food shopping for me he brought me home two plants . Beautiful they are but I had told him not to worry about Valentines Day but he never listens๐Ÿ™‚ at least now I have something that will be waiting for him in the morning . I guess something good came out of being down ..a gift from my heart and being creative.

Snow Day again …..

A cold snowy day and my mood is as dreary as the weather… sadly it’s been a long week and going into a second one at that. Happy my daughter is feeling better , goes back to work tomorrow after being out sick for a week. My hubby is off and on feeling ill . So he’s been resting on the couch since he got home from work . Missing my son so much today , I think feeling the way I do it emphasis him being away so long.. chatting with him off and on tonight , he stated that a lot of people are sick on the base and who are sick have been for two weeks..ughh so he said he isn’t surprised I’m still not feeling 100 percent. It’s 8 at night and the snow is still coming down. I’m thinking my bed is calling to me soon where it’s warm . .. and hopefully my attitude changes as well . Sorry for not a very enlightening post . This winter is getting to me. I’m feeling a bit cabin fever. … sigh.. well I guess I will get comfortable and settle with my hubby. and I’m sure Miss Abigail who is in her favorite chair upstairs will most likely find her way into our room scratching at the bed and jumping on my hubby while he sleeps. .. will see .

Sunday night already…

It’s Sunday night already .. even though it’s been a long week I can’t believe it’s Sunday and I still feel down.. doesn’t help that not being active and feeling uncomfortable I’m not sleeping well . I think I may have kicked this faster if I had some decent sleep . Laying in bed at midnight night wide awake and not feeling bad at all then finally falling asleep after 1 or more waking up the next morning exhausted . And then a long day down again .. vicious cycle. I’ve watched so much tv but the best was today . I cozied up with a blanket and a cup of tea in my chair and enjoyed an oldie but goodie the movie An Officer and a gentleman. Oh the tears I cried at the end I’m such sappy thing ๐Ÿ˜‚ I love a good romantic movie as much as a romance book. My daughter actually enjoyed it as well hubby watched off and on but took moments of laying in bed, fearing that he is coming down with our sickness ..feeling feverish so that’s not good. I texted with my son off and on more today . He is ready to be done with the Ait part of Basic Training about 3 weeks left aand he will be flying home. So we chatted about jobs when he gets home along with his National Guard Reserves job . And anxiously waiting to hear back from the colleges he as applied too , will see. Now watching the Red Carpet for The Grammys. See how long I last . I like some of the music. And performers but after awhile it gets a bit much. It’s getting started so I guess I will chat a little with my son before he has to be off his phone for the night and enjoy the Grammys with my daughter.and maybe the hubby’s unless he goes to bed early so he can work tomorrow . He is the lucky one he can sleep anytime and anywhere . Wish I had that problem๐Ÿ™‚

And here I sit…

Day 4 of still down… for a bit last night I thought I kicked it out of me , and though finally I could get some sleep. NOT! Wide awake because I have been resting so much just watching TVs so just been sitting around during the day . Then the body aches came back and the night was a long one . Woke feeling lousy if I could of slept probably would of been better this morning. .. not helping that it was a mild day and now dropping and the winds have picked up so here we go again with the change of the weather. Today my daughter laid on the couch still not feeling good as well. So as we sipped cups of tea we watched a movie a friend of hers gave her to watch. Must say so different then I thought and the twists in this movie where so many , just when you thought you figured it out ..no another twist came along. . So worth a watch . Now it’s evening and the wind is roaring banging against the house at the moment .I believe Miss Abigail is down with her mom . Earlier she sat in front of me starring at me , nothing like getting starred down by a cat๐Ÿ™„ I had to send a pic to my daughter who was in shock .. she told me I could send her down . I think she went down after on her own. Nooo she’s back! Hahaha. Well I guess it’s time to now try settling in bed…see if I can get into a book …
