It’s a beautiful Saturday morning the sun is shining the sky is so blue not a cloud in sight…the slight breeze keeps it cool a perfect morning enjoying my coffee outside . The birds are happily making their way from one tree to another.
My hubby and I enjoyed dinner out last night. Since my son was working and asked if we were going into town because at first we were thinking of just grabbing a pizza, we brought him his food he had made then just decided to stay and eat . Happy we did….We both ordered the baked Macaroni and cheese Mine had barque pulled pork on top and my hubby had the honey mustard chicken on top of his . We could not finish it the portion was such a good size and it was filling at that. I have come to like it there because you can sit in a booth or table or at the bar which in my case I cannot because being that I’m 4’11 the bar stools are so high I am not climbing up on them I would look like a little kid at an ice cream shop climbing up on one (hahaha) yes my kids agree. Any way we can sit at the booth as long as we want my hubby enjoying his beer and I a lemonade . I’m not much of a drinker anymore . Coffee is my poison🙂 we can chat watch tv since there is many all around . Just enjoy. On our way home my hubby wanted a coffee so we went thru the drive- thru and grabbed coffee it was 6:30 way past my time of having a coffee that I knew would keep me up I figured why not it’s the weekend. So we enjoyed . Once home we settled and watched tv until my daughter arrived home from her day at work and left with her boyfriend , my son worked till 10:30 and arriving home at 11 to tell us as we now were settled in bed yes my hubby with the tv on and I grabbing my neglected book . Was letting us know a friend was in town so a bunch of them were going to get together for a bit . When I put my book down at 12:30 he was still out . I woke at 7 to this beautiful day . Amazed even with that coffee I had I fell asleep pretty easy and did get through a lot of my book. My son came home couldn’t say what time as when we woke at 7 he had just headed out the door to take a long run with a friend . And then work for him this afternoon. My daughter is still down in her place Miss Abigail must be sleeping with her . Since she has disappeared once again after coming up for her treat .. she could hear me getting my coffee, this cat doesn’t miss a thing. I guess it’s time to finish my coffee and get off the deck so my hubby can start working on painting them . I will eventually settle under a tree in the shade with my book🙂.
I woke early to the sound of my son and his friend in the kitchen . I was shocked it was morning after reading my book before bed and shutting the light off around 11 ,I fell asleep quick . This is the earliest I’ve fallen to sleep in a month. No thinking well over thinking I told myself the day before I wouldn’t do that I’m such a thinker so this is going to be a challenge . I kept myself happily busy did things that needed to be done then I relaxed enjoyed my soapy and settled with a afternoon coffee and finished my page I was working on in my adult coloring book. Anyways Morning was. here so after hearing my sons friend leave I jumped in the shower and then for a cup of coffee ,my son chatted with me as I enjoyed my coffee so that was nice . My daughter comes home today after being away for 3days with her Grandmother at the beach. Miss Abigail will be happy to see her. She has been my little buddy following me through the house as I was getting things done.
Happy to say it’s the 1st day in about 2weeks that I could shut off the air and open windows. Been sitting outside reading my book while Miss Abigail sits in the window watching me .🙂 It feels good to be able to sit outside and not feel hot. Soon my daughter will be here she texted me that she was grabbing us pumpkin spiced coffee on her way home and would be here soon .. mine decaf since it’s now 4 in the afternoon. Can’t wait . My son is off on a bike ride with some friends in the nearby town bike trails . So do not expect him home anytime soon. I guess I will enjoy some more of my book before my daughter arrives to chat with me about her trip . 🙂
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 .
This is what the end of the day turned out looking like , after I had posted how rainy and ugly it looked out the rain stopped and the clouds disappeared and opened up to a beautiful amazing blue sunny sky it was such a nice feeling to go out and absorb the sun and its warmth on my face . So needed it .☀️
On Monday it was a holiday so my husband had it off and we decided to take a ride. The sun was shining but the temps where only 19 it was nice and warm in the car . We thought we would check out all the ice that everyone was talking about . The ice as you see was unbelievable, it’s so thick it’s pretty how it flows down on the ledges of the side of the banks of the mountains . They look like beautiful sculptures . The mountain you see is the mountain my sons track team hiked up as well on the day off for practice , he’s hiked that plenty of times and never it gets old. The younger new kids on the team loved it. So that was exciting to see where he hikes I had never seen it until that day it looks so amazing with bright blue sky above it . I must sa it was such a nice way to spend a cold winter day away from the house with my husband and what better way to end the ride but a stop at one of our favorite coffee places for a white chocolate with a swirl of raspberry coffee so good. ❤️
Today was our first snow day of the school year. We spent it decorating our beautiful Christmas Tree my Son picked out from the tree farm he working at this winter, all the employees get to pick out a free tree of their choice I must say he chose well it’s perfect. Our first real tree in 3 years . and as you can see in my second photo our snow day has ended in a beautiful sunny day as well as a breath taking blue sky. After a snow storm.it’s nice to see and now I am enjoying a nice hot cup of hot chocolate and enjoying the sun while its up.
I woke to a new day sun shining big blue sky and saw this simple beautiful rose out side my front door and I just looked at it so bright and peaceful soaking in the sun not bad for a November cold morning ..it was just being and I sighed thinking now if this world could be as content as this rose taking in each day as it comes blossoming with not a care in the world just being …sometimes just being is such a beautiful feeling.. so I stood there admiring it as long as possible as the world around me was in total chaos over our new elected President , rioting in the streets in the cities and on the media and people in my town voicing their opinions again and not being very nice I just turned off the sites and started on with my day with a thank you to this rose for showing me that life is still beautiful and life still goes on and we have the choice to watch or not , to shut everything off and make it into a beautiful positive day . Positive was the direction I went, okay I will warn you nothing exciting but I enjoyed a peaceful quiet cup of coffee and then did things around my house with my pups by my side happily carrying his toy in his mouth once things were in there right place I settled down to watch my favorite soap opera with a cup of hot chocolate and watched the drama unroll through my show, now this drama I can handle. Soon the quietness will be replaced with dinner plates clanging my family chatting about their day and for me I will sit and listen laugh and smile as contentment sets in and that my friends is a good day.
