It was once again a brutally cold Track Meet.Amazed by these kids who can run in this cold , some of the kids just kept on walking , pacing , stretching to keep warm and not stiffen up before their race. The boys did such a great job . The strength and endurance is such a-remarkable thing. My son did exceptionally well we where tied and he won it for their team winning the relay he ran so hard so fast with everything he had in him . Everyone was cheering him on including me that I think I yelled so loud I may not have a voice tomorrow hahaha after he passed the finish line everyone came up to him and his coach hugged him I think it almost look like my son was going to cry so shaken with emotions of everyone shaking his hands hugging him that it brought tears to my eyes . I know it’s just a race…. but to him it’s everything .. all his hard work , his loyalty to the sport his team, his friends and to his coach . Running is his passion well one of many but it’s at the top of the list. It’s night now and supper was a late one he came home a bit after us and ate , showered and yes was exhausted he is in bed and I’m hoping is asleep . I’m still warming up I have my electric blanket on low . To get the chill out of my bones . So hoping for Friday’s Meet to be warmer. Well the fan is on humming away . As soon as my daughter arrives which should be soon I will say my nightly prayers and get get some sleep as well.
Saturday came as fast as it went . My son won two medals with his track team and then decided after to get together with a couple of his buddies so my hubby dropped him off at his car and hubby came home, as soon as he walked in the door I noticed right off he looked like a lobster , he was so sun burned on his face and arms . He said he would go good shopping with me so we left so he could come home and relax . Thankfully it didn’t take long. Hours later my son arrived just as sunburned but wet… him and his buddies decided it would be a good idea to jump in the river . He said it was shockingly cold . Oh I believe it the ice on the rivers just finally melted about a week ago so yes it may have been warm out but the rivers are not ready for visitors. Boys! 🙄
It’s night now the peepers are out and are making the noises they do best . Air is warm but with a slight cool breeze blowing in so lightly the fresh air through our open windows.The moon is full so the woods are lit up . The turkeys that was in the yard earlier as moved on until tomorrow hey come back everyday till Fall is here.we are settled in bed watching a movie lone Survivor ,hmm ..yeah just what a mom wants to see who’s son wants to do this… speaking of my son he is fast asleep after getting up at 6 this morning to get ready for his race and after a swim and the sunburn . He looked exhausted and in know mood for small talk just made his food showered and said a goodnight. Miss Abigail is doing laps up and down the hallway I wonder if my son can hear the thumping of her paws against the wood floor. . The full moon is helping her with this 🙂. Love the sound of the peepers at night . To settle your mind and let you drift off to sleep. Well it will be nice to hear Better after the movies over.. I guess I will finish watching then get some sleep . Good night everyone.
- After a somewhat sleepless night suffering from a bad headache .. I woke to the sound of Miss Abigail scratching at the bed . I guess it was time to drag myself into the shower and then to the kitchen for my coffee and seeing my son just as tired as I was sitting at the table eating breakfast. Knowing that he wasn’t going to be up for talking I went to catch the news . A little while later he appeared in the living room to say by and see me later at his meet. The start of the meet started off sunny and warm then by the end of it it was so cold and cloudy ,this is how it’s been since the Meets began this season… they did well they won , my son did well for being tired . My hubby and I arrived home around 7 tonight so a long meet 3:3o to 6:30 so I made a quick simple supper and we ate in the living room to catch the nightly news my son arrived home after the bus brought their team back to the school …tired sore and hungry he made his special diet and showered then headed to bed my hubby and I watched our favorite Tuesday night show and try to warm up … unbelievable trying to warm up at the end of April. Our windows are open a bit for fresh air ..the peepers are out but not as loud tonight. So a quiet night out there. The clouds are coming in making it even darker tonight as well Rain in tomorrow’s forecast for tomorrow amazed that it will be Wednesday already , this week is going by fast. Well my eyes are getting heavy and time for my nightly prayers and then sleep .Good night everyone .
Beautiful ending to an exciting Friday Track Meet . Brutally cold but with a blanket wrapped around me worked well🙂 our boys Track and Field team won their 2nd meet of the season again . My son broke his record . Came in faster so his hard work is paying off. My hubby niece , Mother in/law and my daughter cheered him on. Happily he is out with his friends now and my daughter as well so hubby and I are home and warming up and watching a movie Suicide Squad …hmm a bit strange and interesting at the same time ..but hubby likes Will Smith and it was on tv’s movie channel tonight so where watching it. I guess I will finish watching it with him . Goodnight everyone🙂
As my hubby is enjoying the hockey game on tv I am looking at paint colors online . We want to repaint our kitchen and living room it’s been 13 yrs since we built our house and feeling like we need a change defiantly over due. As you see I’m the one looking as my hubby is watching the game …okay it’s not that he doesn’t care it’s just he is sick of me not liking his color and him not liking mine so he needed a break . It’s so hard . When we had first moved in it was actually not too much of a though what we wanted and the house was painted now . It just feels so overwhelming . The more I look the colors are starting to look all the same hahahaha . Earlier I thought we had it then one issue came up do we break up the color in the hallway that is connected , follows the kitchen color or now break it up …ughh . It’s a ranch so everything is so connected . I like the idea to break it up he doesn’t . So that has led him to stop thinking about it at the moment . Oh what to do …. sadly I’m not a hockey fan so that is not going to distract me 🙂 well I guess I stop looking give it a break and see if it’s clearer tomorrow. Maybe .
Book read ? maybe since I’m settled under the covers with our electric blanket on ..yess it’s cold it was snowing an hour ago not sticking but snowing ,crazy middle of April. having to use my blanket . It will be used again tomorrow unless I can get close enough with my car to see the track , my son has a track meet tomorrow afternoon in a couple towns over . So if it’s cold it will not be fun sitting outside . Bad enough the kids stiffen up trying to run in their uniform in the cold. Once again my son is home settled in his bed watching a movie after getting home from practice. Such a record . Next week he will be back at school and then watch he will be out at night a bit more … hmm . I guess I will read for a bit Good night everyone.
Three day weekend rides are so relaxing. My hubby had a three day weekend also it’s the start of April vacation week for my son. The first photo was taken today (Monday )we woke to this hitting the windows it’s really not snow more like sleet and now it’s being washed away from the buckets of rain that has been coming down all day. The next photos are of our weekend ride before all the sleet arrived . We went on a back road and yes indeed a back road no guardrails to protect you if you veered off some parts along the river where pretty steep that I couldn’t take a photo of because I hate heights 😂this river is called the Green river if you notice yes it’s Green color because of the clay in it , a lot of people find it refreshing in the summer if your daring ..it’s so cold…it’s also a perfect river to fish in. It was a nice ride even though the temps where only in the 30’s but nice and warm in the truck. Spring is just not wanting to come.. now their saying we are looking at a cool Month of May …. oh I hope their wrong. My son was happy to be inside today after his hike /run with his track team well the ones who where daring enough to do so with the coach. Where they ended up standing in a foot of snow and extremely cold . Which sadly found out running /hiking up in a T-shirt and jogging pants.. he wasn’t lazy inside today tho just inside at the gym working out.. any how this weather is crazy but the ride was nice ..would like to see some flowers tho…. especially my roses would be a beautiful sight 🙂
It’s Saturday started off warm sunny birds where singing it was so beautiful slept with the window open all night falling to sleep to the sound of peepers . It felt like Spring had finally arrived .. hmm I guess Mother Nature didn’t think so as the day went on the winds started to blow the birds stopped singing and the temperatures started falling and did they fall ..its now evening we went from 70 yesterday to 30’s right now and freezing rain coming in and predicted for Sunday as well . My son went hiking with his track team on one of the many big mountains in our area this afternoon curious to hear how cold it was on top when he arrives home. Feels like winter is back for the moment. The peepers are defiantly not peeping tonight😂 poor Miss Abigail was loving the windows open and laying in the window sills now their closed and she is roaming around the house going room to room.. she’s not liking it as well. Soon I keep saying Spring will come and stay .
The weather is as changeable as everything else lately …starting or adjusting to all the new changes and I’m haven’t even begun to feel the changes . Less then a month my son will graduate high school and I will then feel the change more then ever . Give me strength 🙄
