It was such a beautiful weekend . Saturday we were in the70s and it was just a simple day enjoyed the outdoors spending time on the deck and chatting with my hubby while he did things around the yard. Then after he finished we went for a ride and treated ourselves to coffee. Went on the back country roads and just took in the leisurely day. After we arrived home to throw some pizzas in the oven for supper and relaxed on the couch watching tv. On Sunday woke to a cold rainy Mother’s Day. I dragged myself into the shower just as I heard my daughter shutting the door to head out for work . She had a long day at the floral shop . A bit later I got a text from her saying Happy Mother’s Day sorry she missed me but loved me and would see me later. I smiled as I headed out to the kitchen for coffee . My hubby told me she left me a card and she wanted me to open it. .. so I did very sweet and a Amazon gift card was also with it. I was telling her how I wanted to order some books there so this was perfect. My son woke and came out with a sappy face and said Happy Mother’s Day and said he still needed to grab me something he had worked late the night before and didn’t get a chance. I told him it was fine he then said go get ready I’ll take you out for breakfast . My hubby loved the idea and said yes let him do this . So the three of us finished getting ready and headed out . We went to a local orchard that has the cutest little restaurant . It was so nice and comfortable laid back. I do not like stuffy restaurants . I like to be comfortable and I love comfy food not fancy. So absolutely perfect I ordered blueberry pancakes and corn beef hash , my son said only order one pancake it’s huge it covers the whole plate it’s so filling . Well he was right oh my I couldn’t finish it. And a plateful of hash and endless refills of coffee. So there we sat stuffing our faces (hahaha) and chatting and laughing. It was nice do not do this often with my son. After we took a ride as he drove . Then once home my son left for a run with a friend … how he did that after eating I do not know🙂My hubby and I headed over to his moms to give her the plant we got her and sat and enjoyed coffee with her for awhile . Once home still full from breakfast we ate light my son came home from running and settled in as my hubby and I did . My daughter came home with a big hug for me and said she hoped I enjoyed my day . Then we all relaxed . A very simple content day . Oh and my hubby also got me a plant as well my daughter helped him pick it out . I hope all you moms out there enjoyed your day!
It’s 10:30 at night and as I lay here in the darkness of my room it’s amazing how peaceful it is . My house is quiet but yet it’s not .I can hear my husband next to me softly sleeping , And then the sound of my son and his friends quietly talking and laughing down the hall. Occasionally hearing the door to the refrigerator opening and closing. ..Boys always hungry. Off in the distance I can hear a train on the tracks rumbling along through the night ,surprisingly over the sound of the fan my husband cannot sleep without and now I have now grown accustomed too, off and on I hear the furnace turn on and occasionally the sound of Miss Abigail jumping around downstairs hopefully not keeping my daughter awake . Playing with something she found. Soon we will hear the coyotes has they make their way through our woods at night and the cry of an owl going after it’s prey . The night some times so quiet and peaceful yet active and alive. As I drift off to sleep I am content . And feel blessed of this simple life my husband and I have made.
As you see I’m laying in the dark comfy though in my bed ,the house is quiet as the day was . Everything shut down and settled in bed all of us.. It was a calm quiet day as well even though all of us where home . It started with enjoying a cup of coffee with my hubby then a second cup with my daughter , as my son ran around in the kitchen making something for breakfast the sound of the blender and the decent of eggs frying coming from the kitchen . ..He’s back and with his special diet regimen . My hubby did step out for a bit and did the food shopping for me while I was decluttering the kitchen a bit more since it will be a new color and decor. While my daughter did some laundry and cleaned her place up. Then everything was quiet hubby was home groceries were put away . Daughter down in her place . My son sleeping ..out like a light . Exhausted. And not feeling well . As for me getting some dinner going a rotisserie chicken my hubby brought home from the market all set to eat ..so I made mashed potatoes with ranch seasoning in them . Some steamed corn . Nice and simple but hearty . My son ate with us . It was strange but so nice having us all together eating dinner together. Very rare. So I absorbed the moment. Because I know they won’t always be this way . Then my son went back to bed and hubby settled in our room to watch tv as my daughter and I enjoyed a show in the living room .so yes a very calm day but content and relaxed. So now on ward to Monday and a new week. Back to business tomorrow … more bills to be paid ,post office run, my kids hoping to get a Dr.’s appointment . And hubby back to work . Maybe I can sneak in a coffee run. Well it’s getting late and even though it’s really is only going on 10 but with the time change it going on 11 I guess it’s time to get some sleep . It was a late night last night so do not want another one. Goodnight everyone.
The day as I posted earlier flew by so fast . I was in awe . My daughter came home and then left again with her boyfriend. My husband and I enjoyed supper as we chatted about our day then when supper was done and cleaned up my son texted us off and on from his base, it was nice to hear about his day and the break they have for several days from class . He is doing well but is ready to be back in his home town . I told him he would be bored he said no he wouldn’t he would be content . Hmm I don’t know if it’s homesick or the Army is making him humble. Our town is so laid back for an 18 yr old but then again he is an adult now and has seen the other side … anyway it’s a small country town , with mountains surrounding it like a a blanket wrapping the town in it. Woods to hike , run , bike , is what most enjoy around here. You never know what the weather will be from day to day. It’s just plain simple living, so will see after he’s home for a bit and the homesick has worn off.
The evening and night is going by slowly go figure (hahaha) my hubby and I decided to settle in our room to watch tv as I try to finish my book .I’m so close to finishing. We got comfy and my son texted us one more time to tell us he had night duty so he was saying goodnight and would check in tomorrow to see how we were doing with the storm . Well my book never got read , we decided to watch a movie . Ocean 8 yeah it came out this summer but we had never seen it and it was free on the movie channel , we enjoyed it, better then we thought, now it’s over Miss Abigail has settled in bed with us. And my hubby is turning on his trusty fan. (hahaha) yes he can’t sleep without it ..as I have come accustom to it as well🙄 I guess it’s time to call it a night and get some sleep. Goodnight everyone.
The day went by quietly for the most part . My son arrived home around 2 after work and we went to the garage for a tire for my subie if you read my last post you will understand why. It only took about twenty minutes and the good thing was they were able to fix the damaged tire . It cost $25.00 and a pink carnation I walked out with . Yes they give the lady customers a carnation.. good business technique I must say. then we came home and the rest of the day went back to quietness as my son left for a workout and my hubby arrived home only two hours ago long day at work.
We. are settled in bed now my hubby watching tv and I am reading. Well was until my phone buzzed to see I had a follow request on Instagram hmmm.. okay some random guy a happy guy not bad looking hahaha but okay sketchy because I’m private and there’s no mutual followers . (Spam )I believe so I deleted him. Showed my daughter she laughed and said that happens a lot to you . Yes indeed… anyways ..Really enjoying the book . I have a list of books I want to read so I’m happy to get through this one. The night is young so I’m going to get back to some reading. 🙂
Miss Abigail enjoying the birds filling their bellies before the snow started coming down heavy.
Good Morning! woke to a dreary day ,clouds and rain in the forecast I’m not going to complain I rather have rain in December then snow since my kids are working and at school so they will be on the roads. Happy to say I brought my son to the Dr’s to go over the results of his MRI on his knee /ACL if you read my last post he got hit in the knee in football and he is a runner which sadly winter track has started but he has had to sit out . So we found out no tears sprains just bruised and with the stretches they started him on last week have already improved it so the Dr as well as my son and I where pleased so he can now work his way back into running and he is thrilled .oh and can go back to work 🙂 which he is a little happy about . Don’t get me wrong he is a worker but has so much on his plate his Senior yr it was a nice break to relax and get caught up on sleep during the weekends.
Any ways enjoying my coffee breakfast and news show and then will start my usual yes house chores supper preparations it’s all good! I’m content and I know my limits with my hip. It is what it is . . 🙂 well my coffee is done and time to get this day going Enjoy your day everyone!
