Friday is here.. woke to my phone going off twice one my Son messaging me Have a good day! And then the second one from his long time ..5 yrs ..on and off maybe on again girlfriend , yes a long time of this but that’s for another day . Let’s just say she has grownup a lot graduating from High School .so it was her messaging me have a fabulous day Kim ! From Ireland . She attends College there. I am totally in awe ( hahaha) such a beautiful start to my day. My son must be missing me . And his girlfriend too? After that I dragged myself into the shower and enjoyed the steamy warmth of the hot water waking me and getting me to the kitchen for my coffee. Soon after my daughter came up and enjoyed a cup with me. ..Until it was time for her to get ready for work and for myself to get some bills paid and yes do some laundry . After I put a roast in to bake for supper and surprisingly the day flew by . Now just finishing a hot cup of tea and soon I ll eat my dinner. Such sad news… the candy company that made the box of candy that was shaped as hearts and different coolers and had different sayings or a simple word this candy for Valentine’s Day is no longer … 😩 I loved those little candy’s giving those little boxes out…I know and you thought it was something really sad ( hahaha) well it is for me 🙂these little guys such a fun candy. I’m thinking I’ll have my book finished tonight read longer then I wanted to. After my son had texted saying how they were moved to different dorms and new roommates he said goodnight I had been reading off and on before that I went back to it to finish the chapter I was reading and telling myself I would go to bed a bit earlier …. well looking up from my book the clock read 11 .I guess I finished more chapters .. so I called it a night. I really want see how this book ends so I’ll am going to finish it tonight. I guess I will eat some supper and clean the kitchen up with a plate waiting for my daughter as well . Have a good evening.
Today was such a laid back day..oh not saying I didn’t get anything done , I did after dragging my morning out until noon drinking a third cup of coffee 🙄 I luckily didn’t have much to clean around the house .. just some laundry to fold and my daughter who put it away for me and then wiped down the bathroom sinks oh the fun things. Then it was off to the post office and a library stop. Grabbed my book I had ordered along with another book that looked interesting. When I picked up the book Milkman by Anna Burns and asked the librarian if she had read it she likes all the new ones that come out. She said she hadn’t yet but would eventually , she stated someone else had but brought it back quickly stating that she couldn’t get into no matter how much she tried. So I said well I’ll try it knowing me I’ll be the one who likes it. I seem to like the books some do not . I’ll let you know if I do. I hope so it will be nice to have several books to read to get through this month along with everything else I’m doing . Supper is done and cleaned up my daughter is working then will be with her boyfriend my hubby will enjoy some tv until he gets to bed earlier for work in the morning . I’m going to write in my journal ..oh I started it last night it was a great feeling I was worried about how I would balance journaling with blogging but so far I’m balancing it easily . Will see as I go along but it’s comforting journaling it’s a nice release. Well goodnight everyone time for some journaling and reading.
I went to the library and checked out 3 books and two movies ,the movies will watch over the weekend. So tonight I am thinking is a good night to cozy up with a blanket hot chocolate and one of the books . Since the temperatures have dropped . The last couple of nights it’s been chatting with a friend online , I think we chatted till well after midnight. So tonight I think I will read. Even though I enjoyed our talk, I think it will be good to balance it out now with some reading and my friend can settle as well. Out of the three books I have starting with the smaller one to get myself back into reading . My minds been so occupied with things I needed the friendly chat . I’m hoping I can concentrate. . I guess I will give it a try.
I woke pretty early which is unusual for me since not having to wake and get kids going in the morning for school . So I tend to stay up late and sleep in. After a day of dreary wet cold weather . I gave in early and went to bed at a decent time . I woke to a nice sunny crisp fall morning. Enjoyed coffee with my daughter and some conversation then we headed in different directions to start our day.I left went to the post box ..hmm… nothing from my son. I know it’s early. But I can at lest hope..then headed to the library FINALLY ! I did it I was still in their system just needed. to renew my expired card but not having it still . The librarian issued me a new one . I Lucked out ..thinking I would have to order the books I wanted ,she had had them plus I picked out a book that looked really interesting and the Author was local ..even better. I found two movies . Chatted with people I hadn’t seen in awhile and walked out about an hr later with three books and two movies. I guess I’ll be reading after my hubby and I watch hour favorite shows and he goes to bed early for work . As well as a day when no errands need to be run and house is cleaned up . I can curl up with a nice hot cup of tea and a book on these cold days. Happy I finally went . It was nice and everyone there was pleasant. This way it’s cheaper too then buying the books I guess it’s time to see about supper hubby will be home soon and hungry . The Conners are on tonight the premier since they took Roseanne Barr off her own show . Don’t know if I’ll watch it or not tonight I’m recording it just Incase but that subject is for another day …. 🙄 I’m thinking of watching The Voice ,then start one of the books .I’m thinking that reading before bed helps me sleep better too. Okay time to take care of supper.
Its rained all day and it’s been a cool one couldn’t get enough hot cups of coffee or tea in my hands to warm them up . Happy I was out the day before getting everything done that needed to be . Then I could just worry about things around the house. An easy day ,laundry was all set ,house was not bad and supper was breakfast for supper …hot and delicious comport food ! So that being send after catching up on a tv show I recorded I started going through my books deciding on what to keep and what to send to the local church tag sale. There is only so much space to keep my favorites.. before looking like a book hoarder ( hahaha) I really need to renew my library card . I have books at the moment but do have a list of books I want so I will then get them at the library it’s cheaper too. Plus you can rent movies there as well. My hubby and I can enjoy some movies on the weekends cold winter nights . When football isn’t playing ..
I will say I love the DVR that works so great ! Used it finally today so yes the show I caught up on today was the first time I used this feature since we updated our tv dish . Love it . My daughter has just texted me to say she is on her way home soon from work so I could make some pancakes for her with the home fries I made earlier and saved for her and my son. I think my son will be all set he’s out with friends and they always grab food out and one never knows when he will be home . In a week I will know where he is every night . Even though he will be away in another State I will know he will be in one place every night ..bed sleeping 🙂 that part is comforting , right now it feels like he’s just wondering …during the day he’s working out staying in shape at night he’s out well not every night but it’s a guessing game and it’s hard to get sleep when my mind starts to wonder where he is . I know I’m such a mom(hahaha) after I make my daughters food I will settle in with the hubby’s and watch the new tv show FBI , it’s really interesting. Well she will be home soon so I guess it’s time to get off here for the night.
The weekend started off nice , on Saturday my Son and I took a ride to the mall he wanted to go to the bookstore to buy a few books that interested him and he asked if I would like to go , of course I would not to often I pass up going to a book store … even though I felt like I had a cold coming on but it was quick he found his books and I found one . Then we headed home . By night time yeah I was getting sick …ughh the cold weather that came in after being so warm and humid the past week didn’t help . Sadly illnesses are beginning to go around.too .My hubby and I settled in with a good movie The Greatest Showman basically a musical we found out but so enjoyed it . Today was a low key day so did a few tiny things around the house as my hubby was telling me to relax finish my book I’m reading now so you can start your new one. He knows me well. So as Football season has started he settled in this afternoon and watched the games as I read more of my book and yes watched some football. Now supper is done and I will stay put in my chair with some hot chocolate, wish I had a warm cup of tea but need to stock up for winter. It sounds so good right now with my blanket and book. So it’s on my list of things to grab this week. My daughter is working and my son is visiting a friend. So Miss Abigail is settled in with us curled up in her chair .. she’s not spoiled🙄 another cold night ahead .Fall is upon us for now. The middle of the week will warm up for a couple days ,summer is trying to hang on. Well time to get off here and read some more of my book. Then an early night for sleep.
It’s been such a rainy and hot humid summer that it hasn’t been too pleasant to sit outside . We really haven’t cooked out as much as well. Thankfully we were able to tolerate some bonfires this past weekend. This summer has brought me back into the reading mode. I’m thankful for that. I’m enjoying my nights during the week when there’s nothing planned and it’s just settling in so I can relax and read. I’ve managed to finish three books since the middle of summer which doesn’t seem like a lot but they have been big book,s especially Stephen Kings The Outsider was a good size book. I’m half way through the book I am reading right now . Will see when the TV shows come back on in a couple of weeks from summer break how it goes , there is a couple of new shows coming out that I’m interested in. Then there’s my favorites too. I’m thinking between my shows it will be a good balance so I’ll still be reading just as much. Well I think I’ll read a couple of more chapters then call it a night.
