Sitting on my deck enjoying no…. not coffee but a hot chocolate . I came down with the nasty head cold that is going through my household and then add it to my seasonal allergies not fun so hot chocolates been tasting good the last couple of days. Happy it’s a weekend of nothing planned kids are both working so just hubby and I home he is doing some long over do lawn work which he enjoys. Tomorrow the forecast is predicting rain so it’s a nice comfortable day to be outdoors. . My Son made it through his first 3days of his Senior yr this week I think he is enjoying it. So different from last yr they have so many privileges being a senior so it’s really different and layed back. It’s amazing how grownup he has become especially over this past summer .I hate to blink afraid time will just go even faster. Was a long summer and he learned a lot and learned from his mistakes as well . I am learning to back off and know when to jump in and be there for him and to how to let go a bit of both my kids and not be afraid to let them fail if it has to be . They both know their father and I are here and we won’t judge but will give sound advice if needed .Believe me we have not accomplished this new journey has parents completely but we are getting there one day at a time. Well time to get some things done around this house . After this nice breather on the deck.
Once again we are blessed with a cold cloudy day at least the rain as stopped. a quiet late afternoon now after the hustling and bustling of my Son getting home from work and getting ready to go over to a friends house to do some vacation school homework then go to the movies tonight to enjoy the last of this very strange April vacation week . My daughter was busy doing laundry all morning and now off to work and myself done with things around the house and now enjoying a Dunkin Ice coffee butter pecan. So yummy. .. yes I know it’s cold but In New England we drink Dunkin Doughnut Ice coffee all year round . In our town alone there is 3 Dunkins …..crazy I know but cannot say much I support it. 🙂 My husband is outside keeping busy cleaning out our shed so Miss Abigail the kitty is keeping me company well I guess I should say I am keeping her company while she is nice and cozy on the couch sleeping this cold day away. Supper will be an easy one pizza yeah I know not very exciting but weekends are pretty much a whatever because there is really no one around to cook much for so its simple. wasn’t always this way back in the day I made nice weekend meal and desserts but with most of the time just being my husband and I here it’s to much for us so its simple home food or we go out, well I guess I will see how my husband is doing hope everyone has a great afternoon.
Night time upon us and the chill in the air sends shock waves through my already tired cold body. The sky is as dark as can be the star’s are tucked away in the cloudy sky. Even the woods seem quiet tonight, no scurrying of wild life to be heard. Just a sound of a far away car motor or a whistle of train going by to shake the web’s from your tired mind.. Mother Nature why do you seem upset tonight ?sending this chill our way. Please bring your warmth back please be happy again.
Tonight I have this strange feeling , almost an uneasy feeling maybe its because the temps have dropped dramaticlly so one I’m freezing and its making my head feel out of it .or maybe it was the the little talk my son and I had and it did not turn out to well ..so it not sitting well with me. …but that is for another day…anyways we had the living room window open a bit for Miss Abagail she loves looking out at night and listening to the peepers are they loud tonight they have been half the day ..isn’t that unusual for them to be out during the day? My husband and I where relaxing in the living room watching TV when we both looked at one another and he turned the TV down. My husband was like did you hear that It was a whistle sound okay as much as I did not want to agree I did it was so eerie. I told him the other night while we where sleeping well he was I was trying too I heard that same noise at first I thought it was him he can make some weird noises in his sleep he laughed at the remark. but it wasn’t when I heard it again It sent chills up my spine and I pulled the covers up closer to my head,,,, but then it was gone .I hate night sounds especially when your house is surrounded by woods. Does anyone know if there is a bird or animal that makes that strange whistle noise at night. It’s just so unusual for us we have never heard that before.
It’s Saturday night and my husband and I have settled in for the night ..Watching tv in our bed kids are off doing their thing so Miss Abigail my daughters cat has found her place on our bed for the night . So today was April fool’s day and my husband’s birthday so we ate supper out then had a cake have to have a cake and candles need to make a wish. The day was nice Ben though the weather was not 1st day of April and it’s snowing and cold Mother Natures April Fools joke…well not funny. Re at for green grass not white. So did anyone play April fool jokes ?
Here we are again another snow day.. My son will be going to school until July . So here I sit spending the snow day by myself my son stayed at a friends how can he stay home and be snowed in…no not a teenager. my husband had to work and my daughter had decided to leave earlier for work before it got worse …and here I sit house is cleaned supper I’m thinking about and Miss Abigail the kitty is all snuggled up on the couch sleeping away. and did I mentioned its snowing ugh….. so ready fore Spring , sick of this white stuff. okay I am complaining but cannot help it so bored . okay I guess I should figure out what to do for supper. because its not going to get made on it’s own. Have a great day everyone.
This is my Photo for Photo Monday the picture looks a bit tattered hahaha yes it’s the original games very happily well used . My husband and I use to play Yahtzee all the time before we had kid’s and when they would finally settle down for the night when they where little . Now Uno we played a lot with kids they loved it .Actually my Son still enjoys it he plays it when his friends come over and their sick of being on their phones which I love ! . Friday night it was just my Son and I home which was a rare occurrence hahaha well for about an hr or so and we played Uno it was a nice moment. this is what I treasure and hold in my heart moments like this, just spontaneous . Then over the brutally cold weekend my husband and I played Yahtzee for the first time in yrs so that was another moment and now with the big 2017 Blizzard coming our way tomorrow morning my husband is home and my Daughter should be maybe I can gt her to play. My Son of course will be going to friends tonight since school is cancelled already and sleepover and be snowed in with some friends ….teenagers . I must say these games just get so neglected this day in time with all the technology that has taken over, it’s nice to be unplugged for awhile and enjoy what we grew up on . I am so happy my kids where born in the time board games where the in thing so they still can enjoy them. One of the other board games that we enjoyed was scrabble . Need to play that some time . Well enjoy my picture and if you have a favorite game let me know send me a comment back would love to know.
