After a busy Sunday morning with a family gathering . It’s now mid afternoon and sitting out on my deck with my book in hand. Nice to have some cooler weather to sit out side and enjoy some reading .Let’s see how much I can get read today🙂 The weather is perfect there is a nice breeze. The humidity has vanished … So I am taken advantage of it. Late night on my phone with a friend who has recently lost their wife . He has has been finding comfort in talking to me about her. I let him just talk on and reassure him he will get through this. It’s been a strange summer. I know I have said this in past posts but now it’s even more strange… people are talking to me about things . I guess they think of me as a good listener. I do not mind . I alway like to help people . Just sad what he’s going through. He will start back up on his work routine this week so I think the chats will calm down. Which I think being busy will be a good thing. As I sit here reading I can here noises in our woods I believe it’s acorns falling . It’s the strangest sound. I’m sure the squirrels are gathering them up already . It’s been a very hot humid summer on the days it’s felt like it but a short one with it being the first week in August and the temps are now cooling down. The weekend nights have been really cool and so the windows have been able to stay open . I laugh because I have been wanting to have the windows open at night and now I can and there is this annoying cricket outside mine and my daughters bedroom window that chirps all night 🙄 can’t win (hahaha) it’s keeping my daughter up as well. Okay time to get back to my book. Have great rest of the day or night depending where you are.
A cold snowy day and my mood is as dreary as the weather… sadly it’s been a long week and going into a second one at that. Happy my daughter is feeling better , goes back to work tomorrow after being out sick for a week. My hubby is off and on feeling ill . So he’s been resting on the couch since he got home from work . Missing my son so much today , I think feeling the way I do it emphasis him being away so long.. chatting with him off and on tonight , he stated that a lot of people are sick on the base and who are sick have been for two weeks..ughh so he said he isn’t surprised I’m still not feeling 100 percent. It’s 8 at night and the snow is still coming down. I’m thinking my bed is calling to me soon where it’s warm . .. and hopefully my attitude changes as well . Sorry for not a very enlightening post . This winter is getting to me. I’m feeling a bit cabin fever. … sigh.. well I guess I will get comfortable and settle with my hubby. and I’m sure Miss Abigail who is in her favorite chair upstairs will most likely find her way into our room scratching at the bed and jumping on my hubby while he sleeps. .. will see .
Can’t win with this weather just get adapted to the cold and it feels good and Fall feels like it’s here…then wake up this morning and the air is so sticky and thick ughh … the humidity snuck back in during the night . So now air conditioner is on and it feels like July again . My daughter and I took a ride she wanted to see if any leaves had changed , in some places but not much or pretty . I’m thinking this isn’t going to be a good foliage year . The ride was nice though on the back country roads it was a pleasant peaceful ride enjoying some good chatting and laughing time with my daughter . Now it’s the evening we were watching Friends episodes which are always funny but a storm is coming in and we lost tv for now. I guess it’s time to read my book as my daughter gets ready to settle down in her place for her show American horror stories to come on , hopefully the storm will stop soon so the tv works. Ok time for my book.
it’s unbelievable how it’s the weekend already , one more day and spring vacation Is over. My son did what I thought, if you read my recent posts … all vacation he was home every night and then after his Friday track meet he went out with friends and midnight came and I was like oh good he’s home before driving curfew ..then in walked my daughter hmm okay my oldest home before my youngest.. of course happy she was home safe but now where was my son, So I texted him please check in he replied back we are all together at a friends house I will be home . Okay well hmm when I thought . My daughter came up from her place and asked where is he did he check in ? told her yes . So we went in to the living room now both wide awake . As my hubby was sleeping away .. 12:40 hit and no son so I texted are you really at a friends ? He sends back a photo of them all sitting at his friends house that looked familiar and they where sitting around a board game so I told him just stay over it’s late .
My daughter and I stayed chatting in the dark yawning in between sentences 🙂 but not wanting to stop because we where enjoying the moment to chat , it’s been awhile since we stayed up at all hours of the night chatting ..summer is coming this is when we seem to stay up and have these chats . The best moments. It hit a little after 2 and we both agreed it was time to get some sleep.
7:00 in the morning came quick the room was bright from the sun shinning in …tried to go back to sleep for a bit but my hubby and I gave up so we got up made some coffee and breakfast , showered and was out the door at 10 for food shopping . My son came home early morning and already was ready to leave for a run when we walked in the door . After he came back my son and I went and cleaned the car and took a ride and chatted it was all his idea so that was another moment that I have missed . I must say it was a nice. Simple weekend with moments that where as simple but lasting cherish moments . Having some time with both of my kids that are so hard to get now that their older I must say is priceless .
Hi Everyone it’s Monday night this day went by as fast as the weekend. It was a nice morning sitting at our kitchen table enjoying my coffee with both my kids . Chatting about whatever came up. It was a nice moment then my son left for school and my daughter and I went about the house cleaning what needed to be attend too. Then we got ready to go to the garage to see about some tires for her car and after she treated me to a coffee . We sat and chatted for awhile in a place some people may find uncomfortable , unusual , we have always found it peaceful quiet most defiantly quiet unless it’s a windy day and you can hear the wind blowing the trees overhead or if it’s warm and the car windows are down you feel the slight breeze touch your face gently or feel the warmth of the sun with the beautiful sky above . Okay I will say where it is the cemetery .. yes I said the cemetery there’s no one to judge you , no traffic .. and our love ones are there so we go there and check on things but stay and chat ,laugh which I think our love ones would not have a problem with. . Like I said no one to judge you there. Yes there are other places we have but this is just one of them and where we went today. It’s peaceful . Do you have an unusual place you find peaceful?
Good Morning ! Enjoying my coffee and happily another morning of sometime with my son, he’s not a big talker well not at home at school he is but that’s always the way when your a teenager. He had good run may have made it to All States will find out today he missed it by a second in one race that he ran. Very proud of him.
Back tracking : last night when he arrived home , if you read my last post he had a track meet 3hrs away ,my hubby and I couldn’t make it so we waited for him to come home my hubby caved into sleep , of course I was up ..in bed but awake. He arrived after midnight and I heard him come in so I looked down our hall and could see him peeking out the door …hmm I’m like what is he doing ? Next minute he shuts the door locked it turned the kitchen light off and walking faster then normal down the hall to his room he spots me looking at him he says “oh your awake I’m scared” I’m like what! He tells me that as he got out of the car and walking up to our house he heard this screaming crying howling noise I’m like oh the boys are out (coyotes) I call them the boys. I asked if they where in our woods he said that he was trying to figure that out but wasn’t sure he said close ..maybe ?The most eerie sound of the wild to hear if their hunting it sends chills up your spine . After that I just let him get some sleep. and I did as well . Then this morning it was just him and I before he went to school so that was nice . Like I said before ,few and far between the moments with him. Now all is quiet everyone’s at work and school and I’m catching up on the news.. sad once again today .. my heart is breaking for all those angels and their families In Florida .😥 never take any thing or anyone for granted that is why even if I have only moments here and there with my children who are always on the go I will take that . It’s all special to me . So hug your kids tell them you love them everyday.❤️ with that it’s time to get busy myself do somethings around the house . Have a great day everyone.
