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 .
I know …. I’ve posted already today but I’m awake still. I’m laying in bed though so that’s a good thing. It’s so cold and I wanted my bed. As I’m laying here and was trying to organize my Facebook wall and messaging my daughter off and on because she is awake as well. I keep hearing over my hubby’s snoring hahaha … okay to get serious the popping and cracking noise of our house proving all to well how cold it is. My daughter has a friend sleeping over who has to do a night shift so has to go for 1in the morning and oh is it going to be nasty going out to her car in -1 temps , I feel so bad for her. My son texted me tonight he said it was only 1 in Missouri all day and he had to be out in it. I think the cold got to him even though he should be more use to it then his army buddies that are from the south . Being he was brought up in New England. He was grumpy and yes I could tell even over text that he wrote he didn’t actually come out with it that he was grumpy I could just feel it when I read his messages . I said are you feeling cooped up ? He wrote ” oh my god yes! ” ” you can tell ?” I said oh yes I can . He is such a free spirit … even though he loves what he’s doing . Just always been that way. Love and hate that about him it’s like trying to tame a wild animal at times hahaha didn’t know how else to put it. But then on the other hand his heart and humbleness is huge. My daughter is that way too but I don’t feel I have to tame a wild animal with her 🙂 So I was making an album of his army photos on Fb and now their all on my feed and people are liking them and I’m thinking he will not be impressed 🙄 I didn’t realize if I made an album in photos so there all together it comes up in the news feed… 😩 yeah that will really impress him… not! I told my daughter and she laughed and said yeah they kept coming up as notifications on my phone that you posted. Oh well not much I can do about it now. Earlier I was watching videos and reading about Hygge I know so random but I just heard another loud pop and it reminded me of this .. a few of my friends on here and my hubby were talking about it . It’s so interesting . I love to talk more about it but my eyes are not wanting to stay open and it is late so I guess I will get under the covers a bit more and get some sleep. Goodnight everyone.
Woke early to the sound of my hubby plowing well earlier then that but I’ll get to that after… anyways hearing the tractor I assumed we got more snow then predicted. I could see the sun coming through the side of the closed shades , ahh at least the sun was out so that’s good but knowing it wouldn’t warm up much if anything I’m hearing we will be in the -6 by tonight into Thursday. Here we go again these cold spells I believe are worse then the snow. My body is feeling the cold coming in I’m feeling a bit stiff. on my second cup of coffee I know it will not help but taste good (hahah) this afternoon it will change to a cup of decaf tea, while I watch my daytime shows. Getting back to waking up earlier … we’ll I didn’t talk to my son much last night I thought I would give him a break since the last few nights he was responding with one word answers finding out that after class and his chow time he was at the gym .. hmm why didn’t he just tell me that . 🙄 so last night if he texted then I would respond if not then I knew he was busy. My hubby giving in texted him and after awhile my son responded with a hi and then my hubby said we didn’t want to bother you but just wanted to say hi . Catching my hubby I just shook my head . In good humor tho my son responded with just relaxing doing nothing … ughh can’t win . I still let him be thinking if he wanted to chat with me he would since my hubby was getting one word answers after a bit. I can be such a mother hen I wanted to back off a bit hahaha I’m sure you know this about me reading my posts🙂and no he didn’t text me . But it was all good . My hubby and I were cold we decided to settle in our room him watching tv and playing a game on his phone while I tried to read yes tried … cannot get into the book I’m reading ,Milkman and no hope of getting to the library today I’m hoping when my daughter gets home from her boyfriends she may have a book I can borrow . Speaking of that ..she stayed at his house was going to come home but when going out to warm her car up she said the snow was coming down so fast and more then when they arrived there and his vehicle at the garage getting fixed she drove him home because of worrying about getting snowed in here well she got snowed in there . Which I’m happy she decided to stay there ,he lives at home while he saves up a bit more like my daughter is doing and it’s basically a big mountain he lives upon so their at a higher elevation so they tend to get more snow. The thought of her driving down the mountain in the snow at night by herself was not a thought I wanted to think of and that being said we had her kitty well cat , with us and being that there was nothing on tv and my book just bored me and no text from my son . I fell asleep at 10 . I couldn’t believe it so early for me, until I woke at 3 thinking it was much later then that I wanted to cry hahaha , not literally 🙂 then I knew why Miss Abigail was scratching on our bed jumping up on the bed pawing at my hubby’s face (hahaha) he cant win if it isn’t a toilet paper roll ( need to read my post on that) it’s the cat. After trying to get her down and settle he woke . I was like oh great she has him up since he walked out to the kitchen . I settled under the covers more to find him coming back telling me he was just checking to see how much snow we got. Then that’s when I woke to him plowing
I grabbed my phone that was on my bedside table checking to see if my daughter texted nothing but a text from my son stating that he forgot to tell me last night that he received the book I had sent to him hmm.. I had a feeling if I didn’t text him last night I would get a text of some sort in the morning my instinct wasn’t to far off he says he knows I need him are his words he has stated many times but I think he needs me haha yeah we are a lot alike 🙄 . That was good to know tho that he received his book now he will be able to enjoy it. It’s 11:30 and I’m still enjoying my coffee after cleaning up the kitchen after breakfast . The washing machine is ready to go figuring do a load today then running it tomorrow being so cold may not be a good idea. The house is pretty much clean . My daughter isn’t home yet hope she isn’t stuck up their her cat is wandering all over the house ,I’m thinking she’s getting antsy for her to come home. Supper is going to be leftovers tonight and random things if no one wants the leftovers , we defiantly will not starve . Thinking spaghetti and meatballs and sausage will be good for tomorrow when the temps dip even more. I am not going to go out in this …. with hearing about a lot of people including my bestie falling on the ice this week I’m not pushing it. Well time to run the washer find some lunch and chat with my hubby. Have a good day everyone. Keep warm all of you who are getting affected due to the polar vortex .
Well this three day weekend went by fast…. it was nice not having to be anywhere and having some down time . I know your probably thinking she always has down time🙄 but the thought of not thinking of what I need or didn’t do was nice .. I just cozied in under a blanket with my book , journal, tea or hot chocolate and yes my coffee. With some good conversation with my husband and daughter and her boyfriend. And texting quite a bit with my son in Missouri 🙂 Sunday was a day of snow and then a beautiful sunset in the evening and ending the day with an amazing Lunar Eclipse I actually manage to stay up for. My daughter and her boyfriend did too. It took two hours . But it was defiantly worth it. Thankfully we watched it from my bedroom window, being that is was only 2 out there was no way I was going outside …bad enough the house was cold so getting into my bed with the electric blanket on felt good.
Today the temps stayed at 2 so I did not leave the house. My husband and daughter did they wanted to try a coffee from our local coffee shop down the road. There was an almond marshmallow flavored one so they brought me one back. So good . While they were out grabbing coffees I made Shepard’s pie for supper. And wrote in my journal. Chatted with my son not as much today . As he was enjoying his last day of his four day weekend relaxing with his army buddies and getting ready to start back up with their MOS classes for the week. And even earlier wake up he’s not looking forward too again. Back to routine tomorrow for my husband and daughter. While I run some errands . So I guess I will finish up one more thing and go settle under my blankets and read a bit before getting some sleep but not before I say goodnight to my son.
The snow came … we started to have our doubts .. then woke to this . A foot of this lovely white stuff. 🙄 it’s cold , temps are reading 16 I’m warm tho cozy in my chair with a blanket and enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee . .. now that I’m done with taking pictures to share. I sent them to Missouri to my son, Ireland to a friend of my son ,she is there for College lucky girl, she has family there so that’s a plus for her. And now I’m going to share the pics with all of you . The photos do not do it justice. .the first photo was afternoon
The snow is coming . The warmth in the house is a bit chillier soon need to turn the heat up … it’s been a day of I don’t know … nothing (hahaha) I really do not know what I’ve done with this day . It’s 3:00 in the afternoon and I’ve find myself thinking where did the time go? Yes I did clean what needed to be done around the house and supper is ready to go . It’s the other things. I find myself at night reading, journaling and finding then that there is just not enough time to my day ….I’m trying to fit everything in it’s crazy that I’m trying to fit everything in ,in the evening. Then I wonder why I am up until after midnight. Need to find my balance. For now it’s time to think about preparing supper . Maybe being snowed in this weekend I can get into a routine of some sort to do all that I enjoy.
It’s Friday and the temps have only been in the teens if that .. with the wind blowing it makes it even colder. I had to go out in it this morning but then came home did some cleaning up and now cozied up in my chair wrapped in a blanket reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society . I’m enjoying this so much . So yes I do like it a lot . It’s different and refreshing from what I’m used to reading . Now I’m going to cozy in a bit more and enjoy some reading this evening a little while longer since my daughter will be home soon and may want me to watch a movie with her that she mentioned before she left for work if not I’ll read even longer🙂
