Ahhh finally after two weeks of torrential rain and unbearable heat the skies have cleared to a beautiful blue. The sun is out and the wind blowing feels good. Back from my errand in Town and now sitting on my swing on our deck about to read .
It’s 8:00 on a Friday night, My kids are both home and settled in both tired.. My other half and I are also settled in ,the house is quiet and dark … no Tv at the moment ,only the sound that is breaking though the quietness is the rumbling of thunder that feels like it’s going under the house and the closeness of the flashes of lightening that is a bit worry some but also a cozy feeling. It’s nice to have no tv on it’s peaceful.. It’s been a beautiful day despite the storms , my kids bought me a cake for my birthday and with my other half some gift”s and my other have also bought me a beautiful summer bouquet with some of my favorite flowers. roses in it. It was a nice simple birthday. My other have had to work so I spent my day with my two blessings .then we all sat down together and ate dinner and then enjoyed sone cake and laughter after though making a wish and blowing out the candles that is a have to I’ve alway make sure we do. As well as tomorrow when the extended family will come to celebrate my sons 18th birthday. With more cake and pizza that will go home with people after🙂 then on Sunday we may welcome a new edition to our family .. my son found a two yr old cat in need of a home his name is Figaro as in the cats name in the childhood movie Pinocchio , he is a beautiful friendly cat as we are told I hope so I’m already falling in love with him on the computer so we will see how we all relate to one another if all goes well will bring him home .wish us luck . It will be nice to have a friend for Miss Abigail my daughters cat and something for my son to relax with until he leaves for Basic Training and Fir myself to take care of which I do best is taking care of people and animals.
The storm has passed but I believe it’s one of many through out the night. If only it would break this humidity so we can give the air conditioners a break. Well time to read my book , my 500 page one . My daughter bought me the book sharp objects that’s an HBO series it looks so good so I have plenty of books to read, my son and other half are helping to save up money for a new couch we desperately need now that we moved the futon into the new clean spare room where it fits much better. Well time to read , Good night everyone.
My Son made it through his first weekend Basic training , I guess he wasn’t too tired after he came home Suday late afternoon , then him and a friend packed up his friends subie outback with camping gear -a lot of water food , snack bars, then off they drove to New York to hike the Adirondacks, it’s a 3 hrs drive so they Said they would arrive around 11:30 sleep in the the subie which wasall prepared with blankets a little mattress pad that fit perfectly in the back with the seats pulled down they would wake early make breakfast and then hike for the day…..the pictures he sent me I had to show … He said it was amazing the feeling was unbelievable like being on top of the world . I wish I could hike it looks so beautiful and peaceful . I would love to feel that. He said there was so many trails to hike that they want to go back again soon. My hubby went to work then came home around 3 to eat and then went to get sleep to leave for midnight to do a overtime night shift and is still working. My daughter and I spent the day cleaning .her doing downstairs I doing my upstairs and then we went for a ride wanted an ice cofffee and I got a strawberry lemonade . Then her and I odered wraps for supper and settled on the couch together for the evening watching a Netflix show . It was nice spending time with her it’s been a while spending time with her doing something as simple as takeout food and tv . We watched tv and chatted until 11 my son arrived home around 10 Brought al, his gear in then headed to bed , my hubby left for work tand my daughter and I shut everything off and went to bed ourselves I’m shocked how fast I fell asleep I’m not use to my hubby working at night.
Today we do it all again … My hubby will be home soon he will eat then get some sleep and leave for midnight again . My daughter works till 8 tonight, my son and I are going to go to his track banquet tonight and then my daughter wants to watch some more episodes of our show . So now I will go make some food for my hubby wait for my son to get back from a workout and then get ready to leave for the banquet .
Daughters when they grow up they become your best friend. My daughter knows how to cheer me up if I’m having a bad day by bringing me home a coffee or asking me to do something with her. Every night we take a good bit of time texting one another saying goodnight , just like when she was a little girl and we had a goodnight saying,❤️ Today we spent the day together . We enjoyed our morning coffee ate breakfast then decided to take a ride to Starbucks for a change haven’t been there in awhile we had errands to run but set that aside for an hr so we enjoyed the ride listening to her music singing away . We chatted about random things , laughing are butts off which we alway manage to find something to laugh about. I love how we can be open to one another , and to agree to disagree . We have always been close . She has the biggest heart . I can always tell when something is bothering her . When she is hurting I hurt . But the best part is I love this girl of mine so much . Having a daughter is a beautiful thing❤️
Good Morning! the sun is shining a bit chilly but warming up ,cannot believe it’s Monday …the weekend , vacation flew by .Sunday was spent out on our deck with my kids in the morning well my daughter and I sitting my son laying (hahaha) after the photo taken in our local newspaper of his Track meet on Friday he didn’t like how white he looked so he was trying to tan up a bit , well let’s just say not much but my face had sunburned … hubby was happily working on his barn . As the day progressed the day stayed warm and windows where open and the music blared from my sons room as he did the task of vacation homework . My daughter went to work and my hubby took a break and we went for a ride . Nice finish to a day outside.
Night came and it was about 8 and I was doing a few things in the bedroom when my daughter came in looking for Miss Abigail who was enjoying herself sitting on the window sill looking out to the darken lawn and the sounds of the peepers my daughter saw this and so let her be , so laying on my bed with her phone I got done with what I was doing and and shut the light off since the shades where open my daughter and I where chatting about random things when she said did you hear that ? … listen so I did and looked at her she said that’s a strange sounding dog . I listen some more then I heard it in a distant . It was this lonely howl not so much as a bark but cry at first I thought the boys where close ( coyotes) but my hubby had heard it as well said it sounded like a fox . We know Miss Abigail heard it she jumped off the window sill very fast . She wanted no part of it . Summers coming and this will be our nights now with windows open and the sounds of nature echoing in . We can now here the trains and their whistles more clearly … still a creepy sound to me now more then ever🙂
The coffee taste good and my son is running around getting ready for school ,has his school face on … if your a parent of a teenager some may know the school face 😂 so that being said I’m leaving him be to do is thing. Onwards to the last 5 weeks of school …High School at that. Now a lot of homework exams , sports , and stress plus bittersweet moments. Hmm not going to be easy … time to finish coffee and get the washing machine going . Have a great day everyone.
Beautiful ending to an exciting Friday Track Meet . Brutally cold but with a blanket wrapped around me worked well🙂 our boys Track and Field team won their 2nd meet of the season again . My son broke his record . Came in faster so his hard work is paying off. My hubby niece , Mother in/law and my daughter cheered him on. Happily he is out with his friends now and my daughter as well so hubby and I are home and warming up and watching a movie Suicide Squad …hmm a bit strange and interesting at the same time ..but hubby likes Will Smith and it was on tv’s movie channel tonight so where watching it. I guess I will finish watching it with him . Goodnight everyone🙂
The sun is beautiful and feels good. The temps are in the mid 50’s 🙂 Was up early after a restless night .. Brought my sons car to the garage we go to for repairs . Thankfully not as bad as my son thought or was told by another garage . The mechanic explained to my son that just do some up keep and watch it when you go to bigger garages trying to find anything to fix to make money off you. Then I went and had my car inspected . So that is done and feeling a bit better about things . Taking it as it comes one step at a time. Thankfully my son is on a hike with a friend now needed to do something wth all that worry energy he had built up . ..snowboarding instructor job is slowing down for the season so work is slowing down for him until bike park opens . I’m enjoying the sun and some quietness in my chair by the window with Miss Abigail laying on the sunny living room floor. Happy girl. Homemade grinders for supper so easy peasy tonight. Well I guess I will enjoy the quietness soon hubby will be home.
