Ahh signs of Spring.

Yes their predicting snow our way tonight … the good thing is they have lowered the amounts we are getting oh I hope their right . 3 to 5 inches …okay doable .. then the time it was suppose to start snowing keeps being pushed forward it was first 5 pm then 7 now it’s 8 pm. Okay this is not the sign of Spring … it’s these guys the top photo there is 4 turkeys their a bit camouflagedand their not little anymore. I believe their bigger then Miss Abigail and she knows it. She was watching them walk all around the back yard through the window . Her eyes so big. I was in my bedroom putting a few things away when out of the corner of my eye I saw out the window these guys walking by. Such a nice sign . Now they will be here in the mornings then the evenings until Fall. Love that their back, love seeing them. They have been doing this routine for the last two yrs . Last year there was babies which I believe these are the babies hopefully we will see some babies. . Will see. Supper is done and cleaned upI made Homemade Mac and cheese didn’t think I would like the orange sharp cheddar ,that’s all our local store had that wasn’t outrageously priced. I figured I would try it. Not bad, hubby liked it . Now I’m going to settle in read my book and get to bed hopefully earlier tonight . Miss Abigail kept us up jumping on my hubby scratching the bed then our window shade until my hubby brought her downstairs to her and my daughters place .My daughter out with her boyfriend texting me back at 1 when I texted her at ll:00 that she was downstairs watch when she came in. 😭 after that I had a hard time settling in with a good sleep with strange dreams .. so tonights goal is to read now then bed at 9 .πŸ™‚

Snow coming .. again..

I sit in the quietness of my house enjoying my coffee with Miss Abigail comfy in her chair my hubby and daughter both at work the temps in the 20 as the clouds are filling in …. At least the temps will go up a bit so I do not hear the cracking and snapping of the house . The photo I took yesterday being so cold the snow has iced over and made a shimmering glaze above the snow when the sun hit it . My son will be happy if this snow stays , messaging me close to his lights out time to say he maxed out the Physical training test thankfully is last one since he is suffering from a bad cold along with others there so he was feeling sore but he worked out because he was stiff …omg he doesn’t know down time he said he had to do fire guard so he said he was going to bed at 9 to get at least 3 hours of sleep to be ready at 1 till 2 then would go back to bed at 2 till 4 oh what a lousy night.. I’m sure he will be tired tonight . He said he would text but I would rather him rest. I’m hoping my daughter gets home ahead of the storm their predicting around 5 and she drives home for 5:30 so it shouldn’t be too bad and she doesn’t have far to drive.. thankfully .she is anticipating a relaxing night at home with Miss Abigail . Which I know Miss Abigail will enjoy . I think I’ll make a meatloaf for supper. And then settle in with my hubby and watch our shows and read. . I guess it’s time to do somethings around here before they get home πŸ™‚

Productive Saturday…

Yes Saturday is here and it’s nothing but lazy… let’s see my husband painted the bathroom a new color All morning then checked the tractor and moved our cars for our plow guy if needed. As I did what laundry needed to be done and made a big pot of chicken and rice soup and baked a cake for desert . House is clean . Phones are charged and generator is ready if needed as well. I believe we are ready for the storm. Now just sitting enjoying a cup of tea . And listening to the weather channel…. and thinking of doing some reading . Since I’m now cozy under a blanket and it feels like a thing to do . I’ll check in later most likely with some before and after pics of the snow.

Snow …

It’s been a pretty calm winter snow wise , for the most part the ground has been more bare then covered in white, but that could soon change according to the forecast . Fri to Monday looking nasty. It’s now the mid afternoon on a Thursday The laundry is rumbling away. Food supply in the house is good ..my daughter grabbing a few necessities as she leaves work tonight . Mail is checked . So now to settle in the next several days thankfully my daughter has Fri and Saturday off ,if need be her shift is very short on Sunday she can call out or most likely they will tell her not to come in. I have enough to keep me busy here and my daughter does as well it’s my other half that worries meπŸ™„ most likely he will be like Miss Abigail and just sleep away until it stops and has to go out and plow. Plus my son may keep him busy texting him or calling him since my son has a three day weekend at the base and has his phone. New England never know how the weather will be here.

Once again another storm….u

It was a beautiful sunny day .Cold but beautiful. Once again calm before the storm….. looking at anotherNor’Eastern on it’s way here again ,the 3rd weekend in a row Monday looks like it will be cloudy then looking at it coming Monday night well after midnight and into Tuesday evening so we have a weather watch for 6to 12inches 18 inches in the higher elevations so tomorrow cancellations will or should start popping up at the bottom of the tv screens. So I was feeling a bit better so I saw the sun was out and felt I needed to absorb some of its warmth okay well it wasn’t too warm but I did capture a photo of it I loved how blue the sky was as how big the sun seem shining down. . Really do not want this snow ready for green grass , flowers my deck swing , and the stars at night could go on but you have the idea πŸ™‚ but for now it’s the snow and this storm so have to deal with this first . I will go with my daughter tomorrow grab the items we need at the store and then settle in and let it do its thing …. happy my son didn’t have to work tonight so everyone’s home and can get some decent sleep as well as even tho I am so thrown off with this time change , I’m wide awake I think my son is as well I can see his bedroom light still on . usually he takes advantage of getting extra sleep when he’s home,’ well going to read for a bit and hope it tires me . Goodnight everyone in my part of the worldπŸ™‚

Anxiety…

Hmmm.. being a mom is such an amazing most beautiful feeling .That first moment whether it’s your 1st 2nd etc amount of children you have that special moment holding them in your arms and them looking up at you is like no other feeling you will ever know and you want to hold on to them and never ever let them go . You will protect them with all your might. There is nothing you wouldn’t do to keep them from hurting or succeeding in life…..but then the teenage yrs come and they turn into a person you know is your child but this attitude this whole new person standing in front of you is not that little girl or boy you held in your arms not that long ago okay well yes very long ago. Many moons ago but to a mom the time is irrelevant You know that little child is in that grown body some where now telling you their fine they got this let me be . Oh but those are words you thought you would never hear or would of taken a little bit longer to get here then it did. Why does time have to fly by so fast .

My mind keeps counting how many months to graduation and my anxiety grows.. every college application every moment waiting for that email or letter in the mail and seeing if they get in or the disappointment on their face when one college has gotten back to them and it’s a not at this time . So you watch them wait for the next . Oh and as the wait goes on you think how one step closer they will be-to starting this journey of life . As a parent a mom that journey also consists of change for us as well … figuring out what we do now when all you really have done has been a stay at home mom ,one because it worked and two because of my disability . ..But still what to do ? So my anxiety is up and flaring and I’m trying to change some things now so it won’t be so hard when he is off. Oh believe me he’s helping this hahaha my son and daughter are not home much my daughter the oldest is here more she has a place downstairs and a steady job and saving up and paying her car off so she is comfortable at the moment with her kitty living here with her . My son the youngest is ready to run . They are so opposite and it’s coming to light so much more now that their older … anyways my son is helping this change he’s usually at practice the gym with friends ,working or hiding out in his room that part is nice πŸ™‚ I must say I’m happy I have this blog it keeps me busy and something to look forward too plus I love my adult coloring and I’m reading more once again . Soon I can spend some time out with my friends and not worry about all the ice and snow . The days are getting longer. As I hope my spouts of anxiety get shorter πŸ™‚
