The snow is coming . The warmth in the house is a bit chillier soon need to turn the heat up … it’s been a day of I don’t know … nothing (hahaha) I really do not know what I’ve done with this day . It’s 3:00 in the afternoon and I’ve find myself thinking where did the time go? Yes I did clean what needed to be done around the house and supper is ready to go . It’s the other things. I find myself at night reading, journaling and finding then that there is just not enough time to my day ….I’m trying to fit everything in it’s crazy that I’m trying to fit everything in ,in the evening. Then I wonder why I am up until after midnight. Need to find my balance. For now it’s time to think about preparing supper . Maybe being snowed in this weekend I can get into a routine of some sort to do all that I enjoy.
It’s a chilly Monday morning. The coffee is hot and tastes good ! I read after midnight still loving the book. Should finish soon. The washer is humming away but not from me ! My daughter is up and doing laundry . Miss Abigail is running around the house like a wild animal . The sun is out and hoping for the temps to reach the 30’s and then it will feel like a heat wave after the single digits all weekend.
To update on my journaling experience , let’s see it’s been as of today a week . Is going pretty well. I write at night before I read . About a page I’ve been doing. And finding a good balance between what to blog about and journal about .. of course the journaling is more personal then what I blog about. Happy I’m back into it . I guess it’s time to finish my coffee start this day . Have a good day everyone.
So here we are , into January Christmas is a distant memory already. BUT .. my memory still holds on to the sound of the car pulling into the driveway at every awakening hour but no loud music I’ve just realized as I’m thinking about it . Hmm my Son didn’t have his music blaring out of the car. That changed. Now the endless back door opening ..closing with the clunking sounds of shoes being taken of as the razzing of my sons friends continued. Now replaced to the door staying shut more and Miss Abigail looking at it and waiting… and wondering when he will walk in. My husband and I dropped my son off at the airport dressed all in his camo with his duffle bag swung over his shoulder as he walked away after the sad good bye hugs . I just watched in awe to the man . soldier he’s become disappearing out of sight into the building . .. where did that time go of that little blond boy holding on to my hand as we walked into preschool on his first day looking up at me with those big blue eyes questioning me to let him go and run with the other kids. …He is safe on base arrived in time for chow so that was the last time I heard from him happy he was eating since he hadn’t ate much when he left ,never does when he has to fly . So that was last night (Wed ) and then he stated he had to go told me they were taking their phones , so he told me he loved me and was off. Two months of classes he has for his MOS job . With that said the house is quiet and dark at night once my hubby and I and my daughter when she is home settle in for the night , no outside light shining into the kitchen on for him when he would arrive home ,no waiting to hear him quietly walk in. But that will change once he’s back or not because then life will settle in even more ..work , Army and a bit more grownup after being away a second time.
Now back to what I began to say it’s January, usually a dreaded long month for me .. never liked This month . Right now it’s not bothering me as it usually does which is surprising for a change. My hubby goes back to work on Monday and my routine of my own will begin if you want to call it that … my usual get up shower enjoy my coffee with news then do somethings around the house and then run into town to collect the mail . Will see if my son will eventually write or if it will be text messages instead. Then it’s a library run and back home to enjoy my daytime shows and think of something for supper . Routine is good. Changes throughout the years but still a routine. I’m must say I have things to keep myself busy besides the have to’s but the enjoyable things. My blog , starting a journal , reading , and most of all my adult coloring . Thankfully my kids got me a new beautiful adult coloring book with a beautiful set of colored pencils so that has been keeping me busy at night while my hubby and I watch our tv shows. Each day the days stay a little bit longer . So that is nice . I’m happy to have things to keep me busy . Tonight I must say the sunset was so beautiful the first beautiful one I’ve seen since 2019 arrived.
Hello, as you see in my bio I am stay at home mom of two . I am quiet until you get to know me then you can’t keep me quiet. I love to have long conversations with a nice big cup of coffee in hand. I love being with my family especially on lazy summer nights sitting on our deck looking at the stars. I’m simple it doesn’t take much to make me happy. I take life as it comes one day at a time my motto. I hope you enjoy what I share. I am really excited about sharing my thoughts with you.
