Rainy summer day..

It’s been raining sense we all woke this morning. The house was so dark . The rain pouring down so hard it vibrated on the roof and the air conditioner . Dragging myself out of bed to the coffee pot showering the night before because I had heard there was storms coming in . I grabbed my cup of coffee setting out two more mugs for my kids when they woke. Ahh even when it’s humid out coffee still taste good. The air conditioners in the bedroom helped to keep it cool in the rest of the house since it’s raining , when the sun comes back out they won’t, luckily our air conditioner I ordered for our living room and kitchen area came in . My son is off picking it up and running some errands he had . When he gets home will put the air conditioner in.

The day has been a mixture of down pours and moments of sun peaking out a good recipe for thunderstorms later this evening. As you see Miss Abigail is looking happy….. NOT (hahaha) she doesn’t like rainy days. Did a few things around the house , took it slow. Watching one of my shows for a bit before I get dinner going. I’m thing spaghetti and meatballs sounds good. I guess I should get it started before I watch another episode of one of my childhood shows that just fills me with comfort and the beautiful days of the past . Okay that’s for another time and post . 🙂


Ahh Coffee .. mornings

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🙂.

Beautiful day out!

After a rainy humid Sunday ,the night had given away to a windy night …waking to a sunny cold ,windy Monday not feeling like June one bit.  After laying in bed dragging myself out of my warm bed.  I grabbed a quick shower and a cup of coffee. accomplishing  a few thing around the house before my daughter woke . We were going to spend the day out ,check out the sales at the candle shop and grab some coffee. The sale was good so my daughter stocked up on candle melts of her favorite scents as well as car freshener’s . I bought some wax melts and this quote wall decore for my kitchen. I love what it says . My daughter agreed when we saw it. Remarking how I am  always talking about the simple things saying I needed to buy it , after we left there we headed to grab our coffees and then headed home chatting, laughing about random things and singing songs that my daughter had programmed into  her radio. Had a beautiful day with her. We may not do this as often as we use to but when we do we cherish the time and we always have a lovely day out. and yes my quote decor is hanging up in my kitchen and it fits perfect.💖

Bracing myself…

Oh what to do… woke to a quiet house . Everyone at work earlier today . So I just laid in bed for a bit just taking in the sound of the birds outside my window . After a bit I decided it was time to lazily grab a shower . Then out to the kitchen straight to the coffee pot. Hmm coffee for me but no treat for Miss Abigail … still sleeping in down in her place. I guess she’s having a lazy day too. Coffee in hand I looked around the kitchen .. ahh clean so I went to catch up on the news. The sun is shining but clouds are moving in … rain tomorrow , what’s new right? Today will be a good day to sit outside and read .. when I decided to yesterday I got outside settled in a chair , sun shining down on me supper about done and grabbed my book and then my cell rang my sons photo lightening up my screen . Well no reading at that moment . My son needed a ride home from a friends house since I got my car back from the garage earlier in the day then expected . I drove to get him . As I was driving I’m thinking wait he has his bike … hmm. At his friends house about 10 mins away if your driving I grabbed him his bike and his friend. Friend has no car neither.. the kids that went off to college or like my son Basic Training sold their cars or they just didn’t run any longer . Getting back to the house my son went to put his bike away and his friend chatted with my hubby and I . He told us about his first yr of college the likes and dislikes of it  and then realized our kitchen was repainted he was amazed at the color in our kitchen last he had seen it it was yellow . He loved the red . My son came in to the house walking slowly his friend says did Seth tell you he crashed today on his bike ? No of course he didn’t …growing up he never told us always tried to self care for himself he was always patching himself or ace bandaging until I finally found out . I asked him what happened and he showed us his back … ugh his back was like a huge rug burn but from spilling it into the dirt. Thankfully he was wearing a helmet . And him and his friend cleaned it. I’m sure he’s feeling it at work today . With all the shots he had at Basic he said he didn’t need a tetanus shot had one. So off he went to change and head out with his friend.

My daughter coming home from work and enjoying my meatloaf and then settling in down in her place . Hubby and I decided to go to bed it was hitting 10 my son still out . I laid  in the darkness as my hubby snored away . I was finishing a conversation with my friend on my fb when I went to Instagram and there in a story what they do on insta its a video or photo you can put up and it stays up for 24 hrs. One of my sons friends I follow put up a story. I went to it and there on the screen was my son and two more of his friends  are sitting in a row on the side of a tub and their scrubbing their feet and laughing as his friend videoing it is narrating it ..which I couldn’t make out what he was saying because the guys were laughing so loud . I just rolled my eyes , my hubby waking whoops too loud (hahaha) to the sound looked up and was like Seth home with friends ? I showed him the phone . I’m sure he rolled his eyes too. Just as my son walked into the house. Oh it’s going to be a long summer 🙄

Still sitting here with an empty cup in hand . No supper prep end of the week no food . So takeout night . Simple grinders , Salads will do . So I guess I’ll fix my shower dry hair now and find something to do.

And there was sun!

  • Ahhh woke to the sun shining into my bedroom . Late night had a hard time falling asleep .was too warm then cold ..oh I hate when the weather seesaws with its temps .. cool all day then the night seem to warm up and I guess it did as waking to 58 out and yes the sun ! I decided to get up and enjoy it then trying to catch up on sleep. My hubby and son at work . My daughter still down in her place but miss Abigail roaming the house , going from one room to another. Looking out the windows . Trying to find the most exposure to the suns rays. I went to the coffee pot and as I’m pouring my coffee Miss Abigail can hear me at it and now waiting for her morning treat. So coffee for me and treat for her. Went to sit out on the deck with my coffee but I need to wipe down the chairs.. still soaking wet . So I leaned on the railing for a bit to just feel the sun on my face . I pray Mother Nature has decided it’s time to let us enjoy Spring.
  • Time to finish my coffee and breakfast… do somethings inside then get outside and enjoy the sun . 🙂
