Sitting under my tree , happy place today deck needing more work then we expected… the sun is out and there is a beautiful breeze . A quiet day . My daughter is headed to work. My son coming home this evening after an over night orientation at the college he will be attending this Fall. That said I am taking in a moment and doing nothing … as I sit here my mind keeps reflecting back to a mystery this past week .. as You know if your a regular follower or just reading my post . I live in a peaceful quiet wooded area in the country where our driveway is more of a country road . So trees surrounding our home , during the day all you hear is the wind , the birds, and the comings and goings of my kids and their friends. So this was a surprise when I open my kitchen door this past week and found this beautiful item
Outside the door laying on the railing. I asked my son who was just arriving home from his morning run if he had placed it there ?he replied no asking if maybe dad had found it and put it there before work . Puzzled I sent my husband a picture and asked . He replied several minutes later no he didn’t and that he had never seen it before. And thought maybe our daughter. When my daughter woke I asked her and the same reply no not me. Okay now I was really in dismay …. relatives never just show up out here so I didn’t think it was any of them but I called around anyways and same reply no I did not. It’s been a week and this butterfly sits in my planter within my flowers . And there is no answers to where or how his came upon our door step . Do I find it beautiful ? Yes . .. does it make me wonder where this came from ? Yes.. does it bother me this un known mystery yes.. what do you think a message perhaps a sign ? I would love to know .
Just before dusk started to settle in my hubby and I decided to settle in the bedroom where it was a bit cooler. I with my book and him with the TV . We were closing things up and out our kitchen slider leading to the back woods there strolled a beautiful animal. So graceful as she walked . Sleek posture she held as she took in her surroundings. Making sure she was safe. As she looked for food. We just watched her keeping silent so she knew nothing was going to harm her . In time she walked deeper into our woods to settle in for the night.
This weekend we had a bit of wildlife in our yard. On Saturday evening coming home from enjoying dinner out we were greeted by the our fox and turkeys walking through the yard. Then this Sunday evening looking out my kitchen window as you can see this was the scenery yes more turkeys. They have become very comfortable over the yrs on our land. We do not mind even Miss Abigail loves to see them. She may not look happy but she does enjoy them . She is just a bit grumpy with the rain that keeps coming down off and on through out today. Can’t complain about country living it’s relaxing , serene. I hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend.
Good morning the sun is shining a crow in the distance making it’s presence known. The sound of the fountain bubbling . As I sit with my coffee our Flag flows in the gentle breeze how beautiful the site it is. So I take it in and reflect on it’s meaning and sip my coffee and enjoy the tranquility .
It was such a beautiful weekend . Saturday we were in the70s and it was just a simple day enjoyed the outdoors spending time on the deck and chatting with my hubby while he did things around the yard. Then after he finished we went for a ride and treated ourselves to coffee. Went on the back country roads and just took in the leisurely day. After we arrived home to throw some pizzas in the oven for supper and relaxed on the couch watching tv. On Sunday woke to a cold rainy Mother’s Day. I dragged myself into the shower just as I heard my daughter shutting the door to head out for work . She had a long day at the floral shop . A bit later I got a text from her saying Happy Mother’s Day sorry she missed me but loved me and would see me later. I smiled as I headed out to the kitchen for coffee . My hubby told me she left me a card and she wanted me to open it. .. so I did very sweet and a Amazon gift card was also with it. I was telling her how I wanted to order some books there so this was perfect. My son woke and came out with a sappy face and said Happy Mother’s Day and said he still needed to grab me something he had worked late the night before and didn’t get a chance. I told him it was fine he then said go get ready I’ll take you out for breakfast . My hubby loved the idea and said yes let him do this . So the three of us finished getting ready and headed out . We went to a local orchard that has the cutest little restaurant . It was so nice and comfortable laid back. I do not like stuffy restaurants . I like to be comfortable and I love comfy food not fancy. So absolutely perfect I ordered blueberry pancakes and corn beef hash , my son said only order one pancake it’s huge it covers the whole plate it’s so filling . Well he was right oh my I couldn’t finish it. And a plateful of hash and endless refills of coffee. So there we sat stuffing our faces (hahaha) and chatting and laughing. It was nice do not do this often with my son. After we took a ride as he drove . Then once home my son left for a run with a friend … how he did that after eating I do not know🙂My hubby and I headed over to his moms to give her the plant we got her and sat and enjoyed coffee with her for awhile . Once home still full from breakfast we ate light my son came home from running and settled in as my hubby and I did . My daughter came home with a big hug for me and said she hoped I enjoyed my day . Then we all relaxed . A very simple content day . Oh and my hubby also got me a plant as well my daughter helped him pick it out . I hope all you moms out there enjoyed your day!
It’s a balmy 47 degree day (hahaha) hubby and I went to the dump and then decided to get a coffee treat… calling it a treat because we usually just get a hot flavored coffee but we saw this banana split flavor frozen coffee and had to try . Okay this will defiantly be the only one unless they keep this for a bit because it would have to be a monthly treat … it was so filling .
We didn’t feel like going home just yet so decided to take a ride. My hubby loves back country roads so off we went . The coffee cold but inside the truck nice and warm as it spit snow on to the windshield. We went by a farm to see that sheep were out enjoying the sun . Saw the little lambs walking along with the older ones . Love listening to them such a beautiful sound of Spring .
We let them be and proceeded on with our ride. Defiantly country roads….
The grass is looking nice and green now . As you see the clouds moving in where the clouds that gave us some snow flakes. Thankfully nothing much but just proves how cold it is. Now home the house is nice and toasty . Everyone’s working so just hubby and I and Miss Abigail . The sun is out again the clouds have cleared a bit and shining so it’s shining in Nice and bright. Soon will be time to make some supper . Thinking Manwhich (sloppy Joes) and potato tots . Simple and filling. And some will be left for whoever of my kids will wants some when they get home from work. 🙂
