As long as last week was ,as short as this weekend is. It’s just hitting 7:30 and the sun has already disappeared below the trees and settled into the mountain well thats how it looks . Peepers no more . Do they stop making noise at a certain time of the season? And no wildlife as well . At least the humidity is slowly dissipating. It’s a bit more bearable . A new week will be beginning and plans are being made to fill it up . Monday will be spent eyewear shopping with my daughter who needs to get new glasses and wants my opinion. Maybe I can find a book or two while we are out and about. Then Wednesday my daughter and I will catch an afternoon movie. We want to see the new The lion King , my daughter loved it as a little girl . It looks really good . So looking forward to that. All fun things to do this week. Then the birthday weekend will arrive and I can’t wait for that to pass by … not for my son I love celebrating my kids birthdays it’s mine Id like to forget. So with that said my son is accumulating a good room full of items for his college dorm. Unbelievable he will be starting college in a month . National Guard drill will be starting up for him the first of August so he has that to do as well. Things will get busy soon for him and I less busy….. less busy worrying about him (hahaha) he will be tucked away in school. I’m really hoping he likes it. Time will tell. In the mean time I will enjoy both my kids while their home together . A rarity these days. It’s 8 now and it’s getting dark already . My son is out on his bike for a quick ride before it gets completely dark. Waiting to hear the roar of it’s engine soon pulling into the driveway. Oh how he loves that bike. Hubby will be going to bed in a half n hour ,4 in the morning comes quick . To early for me to settle so I’ll take advantage of the quietness and read some more of my book. Hoping I can get into it more. Not ready to give up on it yet. Well until then I guess I will get a couple of things done . Have a good night everyone!
Woke for 7 and put myself together to bring the car to the garage …. oil change . And yes the struggle of getting up at 7 was real. It wouldn’t be if I was still use to it .When my kids were in school I was up at 5:30 every morning. But now adult kids I’ve become once again a night owl .. so 2:30 finally falling a sleep to then waking at 7 was yes a struggle. I rushed a half of cup of coffee , ate some eggs and out the door I went of course out into the rain again . Dropped the car off at the garage that is right next to a convenience store and enjoyed a coffee while chatting with people from town. 45 mins later done then went to the post office grabbed the mail and headed home. My daughter came home from work around 12:30 with a coffee in hand . A very caffeinated day. A definite need. While cleaning up the house and chatting with her my hubby called to tell me he needed to be picked up from work my son had his truck to go to work , so my daughter and I both headed out to grab him and somethings my son needed for a Race tomorrow The Bone Frog Race. Very popular . This I believe will be his third one . He lives for this . I’ll post pics. Supper was easy takeout from the pizza house in town so hubby and I grabbed that and dropped food off for my son who went to the final track meet of the season the big one many schools involved at the high school he graduated at last year and the sport that was his and still is his passion. Then we headed home to eat with my daughter. So a busy but laid back day. The sun came out during the afternoon just in time for the track meet and it hit 78 out . Tonight all have settled in .
My son came home I asked if he had a good time and if he missed those days ? He said yes but no .. only because he felt old , oh if he only knew what it really feels to be old , I knew what he meant but I had to chuckle when he said it . He said that a lot had changed and the kids were less and just so different . I believe the word would be immature . My son has grown up a lot in this past yr . I thank god. He has come off his pedal stool . The Army has humbled him and for that I do thank the Army for … but the rest makes me nervous of what he has started. But for now will not think about it ..all are home settled in I’m about to do the same . Just reading a bit more to get done with this book I’m reading. My book should be coming soon in the mail. With another to follow . So read a bit more then off to bed. Good night🙂
After a very restful night even with the full moon lightening up our bedroom I was amazed when my hubby shut the TV and lights off around 9 (I usually go through blogs or play a game on my cell) I turned to my side and next thing I know it was 7 in the morning, the sun shining through . I laid in bed a bit longer going through my Twitter and Instagram then decided it was time to jump in the shower and get some coffee. Once my coffee was finished I started in with cleaning up the kitchen wiping things down I’ve been doing a lot more lately with all the sickness that is going around. Then throwing a load of laundry in ,opening the bedroom windows a crack to air out the house. Then it was spend an hour making phone calls that needed to be done while throwing chicken into the crockpot for supper. After that was all set it was time to head to the Post office and bank . Then headed home to switch the laundry over to the dryer. So you see back to the norm again hubby at work my daughter off with a friend … my son back to his early Army mornings and class . No texts during the day…after being use to them since his four day weekend. Hope he is feeling better.7 at night here 6 in Missouri and one text at 5 his way saying “Hi” so I’m thinking he’s back to bunk cleaning or he’s resting , I’m sure it will be less hearing from him since he’s down to 2 weeks 4 days until he flys home … no I’m not counting😂..so will see if he texts my hubby and I . My daughter thankfully gave me a book to read since . The library walk way was icy and I didn’t dare try it ..and thinking the books I had ordered two weeks ago before I got sick ,that I had noticed on my library account have expired and I never could pickup most likely were sent back. No loss I love the book my daughter is letting me read .I loved the last book I read by this author Liane Moriarty plus it’s a very thick book I believe about 400 pages. My daughter started reading it likes it but said she wasn’t going to read it fast enough and thought I would read it faster so she would finish it after I’m done . Hmmm no pressure ( hahaha) will see how it goes. I believe she isn’t to worried . I guess it is time to start it but not before I read some blog posts . Supper is done and cleaned up not much on for TV shows so time to relax . Night!
Today as I was waking up my hubby who was up an hour before me. Informed me the groundhog saw his shadow , a early Spring it is. Well whether you believe it or not it’s a fun idea . I am hoping this little guy is right. Early Spring sounds beautiful to me. I guess we just have to wait and see . At least it’s February now and everyday it’s staying a bit lighter in the evening 5:30 and it’s just getting dark. Tonight my hubby found the movie Groundhog Day with Bill Murray . Yes every year it’s on one of the channels and my hubby always comes upon it. You have to watch it . I do not want to give it away but I’m just going to say it’s a bit frustrating lol. My hubby loves my reaction to it when he finds it. But I’m a good sport and watched it with him.
Today we conquered the grocery store, yes conquered … it was wall to wall people , Super Bowl weekend… everyone was walking into peoples carriages that were in the way some way or another know matter any way you turned … waiting basically in a line for your turn to get to where the hamburg and other beef was to grab some. Then the same in the dairy isle where a lady almost turned and ran into my carriage but luckily I was able to move enough and in time and she thanked me . I laughed and said oh no problem just happy your fine she replied well you had my back thank you. I thought that was nice of her. Oh I witnessed a lot of comments some not so nice .. not directed at me but just hearing people complain . My hubby after grabbing a couple of things and having me just stay where I was came back and said let’s get out of here . We couldn’t move fast enough zig zagging to the checkout. After we went for our after shopping it’s over coffee treat! Then headed home to put the groceries away. My hubby went for a hike in the snow as I went through somethings in the kitchen I wanted thrown . Trying to declutter more of the kitchen since we will be painting it soon. Nervous about this one … the color is a maroon / soft /dark red .. yeah complicated they say red is but we thought it would be cozy for a change from the bright yellow well not a bright but light yellow that after 12 yrs we need a change. I think even though it’s going to be a darker color the room will still be light enough , we get a lot of light from the slider in there. I’m excited to see how it will look after it’s finish, It’s just doing it . Well this Saturday went quick it’s 11:00 I guess I will get some sleep hubby’s already snoring🙂
It’s Tues feels like a Monday ,3 day holiday weekend has come and gone. Now back to the routine, Hubby at work and my daughter too. My son back to his classes so back to getting A text after 6 in the evening off and on until 9. And I just made stuff shells that are baking as the washing machine is rumbling through out the house. I did some dusting. And my daughter is grabbing the things I needed at the store when she gets out of work . Thinking it wouldn’t be a great idea to risk slipping on some ice with my hip , since the temps are now in the 20’s but the ice is here and there. Tomorrow I will get to the post office and mail my sons book. Ready for Spring….🙂 but for now I will just enjoy my reading and adult coloring. I know I have plenty of books to get through. It’s going on 3 already I guess I kept busy today … stuff shells smell delicious. And the house is clean and warm can’t complain… plus the sun is shining . Miss Abigail has tucked herself away in one of the bedrooms where the sun is shining in more then the others feeling the suns warmth , I believe she will stay that way until the sun goes down. No coffee this afternoon or tea just yet. Water is a good thing (hahaha) too much coffee and a full moon hmm …doesn’t mix , sounds strange but true . Had too much caffeine then with the full moon ..Sleep was hard to come by last night. So drinking my water then after when it starts to feel a bit cooler in the house I will have a nice hot cup of decafe Tea. Time to check my shells and the washing machine has stopped. Have a good day everyone!
It was ..is a long tired week .. my hubby had a long week , nice but tired . Doesn’t do well away. My son did well ..had graduated from Basic Training and looked very sharp. As my daughter and I who had to stay back her with work and I who cannot fly made it through the 5 days just fine kept busy had some fun laughing .. and yes moments of feeling sad I couldn’t be there to share this moment with my son.so some sleepless ones. as well .. thinking. Happy the 5 days went fast As we waited till 2 in the morning for my son and hubby to arrive back home and seeing my son in his army graduation uniform walk through the door was priceless he looked tired but confident and sharp . With open arms we went to him . It was nice ! Always love his hugs . As straight as my hair is now from the curly ness when he left he was as bald … we both remarked on each other’s head ( hahaha) he said it felt strange being home .he felt like he was still in Missouri .. Finally settling into bed at 4 this morning we woke to the sound of the shower running ..four hrs later . Him so use to being up he was ready to run get some Christmas shopping done . And then yes the gym .. i felt a little set back seeing him kind of get back to his old self or thought this .. I just wanted to hold on to him . it’s 8 at night and I’m ready for bed and he is home and I guess is on Army schedule still he has settled in for a nine o’clock bedtime like he is use to so I had a bit of a chat with him I told him be patient with me I know you need to do what you need to do and I will back off . He said no do not back off you have every right to say these things I need and want and should rest and spend more time home that’s why I am on this block leave and I should of today so I’m sorry . I guess my son has changed a bit and we will see but I will respect his time as well well it’s time for some sleep I’ll be on here more routinely soon.. but for now please be patient with me.
