Good Morning siting enjoying my cup of coffee and the sound of the birds outside my living room window the sun is shining and it’s a beautiful morning… sadly my heart is heavy, our little town as witness so much grieve in this past year is just so unbelievable and we all ask why? but there are just no answers. life can be so harsh its just unfair a young family in our town as suffered a horrible loss their daughter of the age of 9yrs old was killed while getting off her school bus this past Friday …do not have all the details but something on her got caught in the bus door and the bus driver did not realize she was caught and drove off her poor dad I believe witnessed it and tried to stop the bus but that did not happen…..the rest is too much to explain. I cant imagine . Why I ask once again …Being a parent Is I believe one of the hardest thing to be and it doesn’t get any easy easier as they get older there are new worries and you just want to keep them in a bubble sadly that is not possible . We need to remember that life is a gift and we cannot take anything for granted and do are best to make each day count so pleases everyone count your blessings everyday.
Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Halloween. My family and I enjoyed a pleasant night at home watching the movie Hocus Pocus one of our favorites . Now here we are 1st of November the time to look forward to that hour more of sleep Yes the good old time change ,we all can enjoy or not. It will get dark around 4ish which is not to enjoyable especially for my husband and son who love to take their runs around that time. this will be when my adult coloring book and enjoying a good book will come in handy. Then there is my daughter and I with our latte time to enjoy a nice conversation over a the hot tasty comforting flavor of Starbucks gingerbread lattes the best, my friends I hope you try one especially if you enjoy gingerbread you will not be disappointed So now as the days get colder and shorter this is my plan . enjoy your traditions Happy November Everyone.
Happy Halloween Everyone ! Have fun and stay safe.
Adult Coloring is so much more then just sitting there and coloring a page. To me it’s a stress reliever it stops me from thinking, worrying over things I cannot control . I usually do more coloring when the days get colder and shorter.. during the day when my family is off at school and work and I have done what I need to do. I curl up in a comfy chair and a hot cup of of my favorite tea and just color away . It’s also great when your feeling under the weather and not much is on the television, so it’s not just a stress reliever but so enjoyable and helps time go by. I highly recommend it ,there is so many great coloring books to choose from wildlife patterns to city living patterns flowers , shapes quotes I could just go on but you have the idea. so try it and enjoy. Happy coloring.
Good Morning Everyone here is my Monday photos in honor of the beautiful New England Fall Foliage, enjoy!
It’s a crisp windy sunny fall Sunday morning the sun just shining on the fading beautiful foliage is stunning . Everyone is busy as usual.. my son went home coming dress shopping with his girlfriend my daughter off with her boyfriend and my husband doing some outside cleanup then there is me I am thinking of making a nice homemade soup for supper feels like a soup kind of day when everyone settles in for the night.. I had hear some towns around our area got a dusting of snow and people were so happy I would not have been one of the happy ones ..not a fan of it and sadly I live where we get it. isn’t that always the way? well must start my day I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday, off to make my soup have a great day everyone.
It’s a quiet cold windy Saturday at home. I sit her watching the cat enjoy watching the leaves swirl around outside and the pups lay sleeping comfortably on my couch and I wonder why am I sitting here watching them doing something they enjoy. I should be doing something enjoyable so I stare at my laptop then I turn away once again yes this is not the first time I have turned away. I scroll through Twitter ..Facebook and wonder why can I not get back on this blog? so many thinks to write about so many things to let go of, so today I have done it here I am . Bare with me the last time I have written was the end of June and the last thing I believe I wrote was I whining to a close friend that I didn’t want to be an adult anymore 🙂 I was tired sad okay feeling sorry for myself a bit yes it hurts to admit this but come on haven’t we all felt this way at one time or another… YES!
So summer as come and gone and it was a summer of change sadness happiness and a lot of growing in many ways. My oldest my daughter turning 21 it’s so unbelievable to me that she is officially an adult already , it feels like just yesterday watching her at the playground swinging on the monkey bars and playing hopscotch. My youngest turning 16 and receiving his drivers permit My Husband and Son spending a week in California because my son qualified for the Junior Olympics in running hurdles so that was both happy.. sad.. busy many days of running him to the gym the track to train plus running him to work and drivers ed . See why I didn’t want to be an adult hahaha but happy because we where all so proud of him and the sad part because it was the first time him being away for his and my birthday, my husband did have a cake for me the weekend before they left so that was a pleasant surprise but to keep the cost down it was best that my husband just went with him plus my bad hip would not have been happy with all the walking. I stayed back with my daughter and we had a pretty calm week went shopping stayed up late talking and she surprised me with a cake as well on my birthday the week flew by and my husband and son made it home safely .What an experience they had though my son loved California but did admit home wasn’t so bad after all quieter less people and much cooler ..he said city life was not for him. hahaha He is like my husband more of a woodsy private person who enjoys the solitude of nature . Then the summer had its low points a young boy 13 yrs old lost his life to an all terrain vehicle accident in our town and that twas just so heartbreaking it just proved to all of us in this quiet little town even more how short life really is so I take back saying I do not want to be an adult. so you see many new and sad experiences this summer that yes have taught us more to appreciate what we have and we should never take for granted.
now it’s Oct and there is foliage rides with my husband .Coffee trips with my daughter for a hot cup of Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte’s the best . A new school year sport events for my son .My son driving us with his drivers permit every chance he gets and then cozy night in bed cuddled up watching our favorite shows with our pups at the end of the bed .This might sound boring to some but to me this is everything after this summer and a lot of soul searching and feeling like there should be more well maybe there could be but right now this is enough and everyday is a new learning experience I believe for my husband and I and us spending more time alone together again. and for myself to do what I never had time for in awhile , that is why I started this blog and I am finding like this summer I will have days even months that I am not on but please bare with me at those times. This is such a whole new world. When you have kids they become the center of your world and then they grow up and you find yourself almost lost because you can’t go back to that person you where before so much has changed you have changed it’s like this whole new journey of rediscovering who you are and what you do here on out it really can be so mind blowing I am sure I will have many things to tell. Stay tune. 🙂
