I woke late which has not happen for a bit but then again I didn’t fall asleep until well after 1:30 in the morning that has not happen in a bit as well. I dragged myself out of bed ran a brush through my hair since showering the night before and then headed straight for the coffee . Which on this very cold morning tasted so good. After chatting with both of my kids changed for the the day and hubby and I tackled food shopping grabbed the house groceries then the things we needed for my sons family going away gathering.after going home and putting groceries away . We were off for mum shopping and that consist of backroad driving . Nothing like a ride in the country on beautiful quiet back roads with the leaves changing . Yes there as been better foliage years but here and there we were able to find some pretty sites. Arriving at the place we love to buy our Fall mums at was booming with people . Their mums are gorgeous and a good price. We purchased 6 big ones nice and full and their color is so vibrate their beautiful. Next weekend maybe some pumpkins, right now their a bit pricey. As we arrived home and was parking the truck their in our yard looking straight at us was the cutest baby fox we stayed in the truck for a moment to reassure it that it was fine. That it wouldn’t be harmed. After a moment it headed back into the woods. As I write this the boys (coyotes) are around we could hear them yipping and the crunching of the leaves outside our bedroom window so yes very close. Now that’s not good. This is when I wish so much we still had our pups to scare them away . He did such a great job making them know they needed to leave. It’s been a nice relaxing fun busy day . …and very active night with our wildlife . I guess now it’s time to call it a night and get some sleep going to be busy and emotionally exhausting next three days tomorrow family over for food and see you later not goodbye and then tying up the last few details and packing things and getting him to where he will leave from for Basic Training in Missouri . So Night everyone. I’ll keep you posted.
When your sitting outside on your front deck over looking the yard and your enjoying a book in the warmth of the sunlight and you see and hear these guys coming for a visit .. they stop for a moment when they have spotted me looking at them but know their not going to be bothered so they enjoy my front yard and I just enjoy the beautiful sight of the wildlife that is a benefit of living in the country.

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.
