It’s Monday night relaxing under the covers keeping warm ,another cold night and a storm coming in . My other have sleeping away next to me . Went back to work today . Holidays over .. time to get back into routine . I woke to the sound of my phone binging away with messages first my son with a good morning at 8:00 then finding messages sent after going to bed . So got up dragged myself to the shower then to the kitchen for my coffee. Enjoyed with a friend of my daughters stopping by to surprise my sleeping daughter who after an hour woke from her slumber to hear her mother talking away and informing me that she thought I was Having a lengthy conversation with myself because she didn’t hear her friend. 🙄 I thanked her for thinking I had gone senile (hahaha) she so not a morning person. Anyways I left them to get my day started ..cleaned up the house a bit not much needed to be done but through some laundry in and set it for when I return home from a friend of mine. Spent the day at her house chatting away and picking up jewelry she sells that I had ordered . And before I knew it it was 5 in the afternoon . It’s funny when your with your best friend you can just talk for hours about anything and it never seems like enough time. But duty called so it was time to head home home start supper as my phone went off .. my son texting me. Taking full advantage of his phone until they take it away tomorrow when his army work class starts. We chatted tonight before his phone had to be turned off at 9 and I told him I would write him some letters . He stated he would write back . This is a bit different then Basic Training more freedom . He believes after two weeks of classes he will get his phone back for the remainder of the 6weeks. But I was happy he said to write . I love writing letters . So I am looking forward to it. Anyways supper came and gone and my daughter came home from being with her friend on her day off . And here we all sat in the house all on our phones while my son was texting us all separately . Oh technology . That was our night then my daughter went down to her place and my other half and I went and settled in our room . So I guess It wasn’t a bad Monday .. a good start to getting back into things . After Christmas was the hardest . Taking down the tree and decorations seem like a chore . Just getting back into normal supper meals after holiday meals and eating out the four of us spending time with my son before he left.etc seemed all so exhausting . So today felt better if that makes since. And now I’m going to call it a night and get some sleep . 🙂
Ahh woke to a cool actually cold morning. Thankfully the temps have stayed cool. Friday night was spent with family watching the Town fireworks . Where we sit you have to get there at least two hours before and just get comfortable and enjoy good conversations and laughs …or you will not find a place to park. For several years now my kids have not gone with us they do their own things with their friends sitting down where they have a festival as well .. no rides just food and shop venues , music, which mind my language but hell to get out of after it’s over . You could be sitting there for hours or praying your vehicle didn’t get scratched by someone who is squeezing in to make room for their vehicle ..
The dark slowly approached while waiting for the fireworks and the colder and windy it became my hubby and his brother had shorts on and well they were freezing, after 6 days of temps in the 100 the 60″s with wind is an adjustment. The fireworks were amazing and once they started they last longer then other Towns I had heard that had them on the 4th , well worth the chill and the wait. Today will be spent with my sister celebrating her daughters birthday sitting around her pool which I believe is too cold for me today.. yes I’m am wimpy (haha) and enjoying some drinks well my hubby will be ..I think I’ll be the designated driver he’s had a long rough week at work in the heat paving highways so he could use some drinks ( hahaha) give me coffee or ice tea and good conversation and I will be good. I hoping tonight we can come home sit out on the deck for a bit . Suppose to be a cool night again so tiki lights a blanket and the stars sound like a perfect night. Okay time to finish my coffee and do some things before we go . Have a great day everyone 🙂
The kitchen table .. is not just for breakfast , lunch and dinner , it’s a place for endless nights of doing homework. it’s the best place in house to enjoy a hot cup of your favorite coffee ..tea or whatever your liking is. As you enjoy a simple chat before heading out to start your day . Or a quiet moment to talk over a bad day . For me it’s the place where many moments memories are made good or bad but especially the good , the kitchen table holds on to all our laughing silly or deep conversations about life . It has heard many happy birthday songs and held many cakes of all occasions to enjoy.It hears our dreams as we sit with our cups of coffee warming our hand s and chatting about those dreams we want or we should of persude . The kitchen table is like an old friend that is always there to sit around to comfort our so many thoughts and yes that what I feel as I know it’s my favorite place in the house . The conversations get less and less as we grow and sometimes as I’m sitting here yes with my coffee and staring out my window I can hear the laughing see the tears that have been shed here . .. and I notice a slight carve into the old tattered wood where my kids I couldn’t say which one 🙂 where there’s a pencil marking when I may not have been looking someone tried carving their name or a marker stain and I smile thinking oh this table hasn’t heard the last of the laughter or deep conversations they’ll be more but of a different older time when they come home .. deeper voices .. more confident grown adults looking to enjoy a cup of coffee and a nice conversation.❤️
Woke up to a Very sunny beautiful…but….. A very warm sticky day , so hard to adapt after many chilly rainy days. So I decided not a day to enjoy my coffee on the deck so I ‘watched some news and then got started with my day which consisted to three different stops in town and I would of thought I had a note on my back then said talk to me I ran in to many who wanted to sit and chat about everything so I did my best with the time limit I was on because my son had a track meet and I wanted to go see it. Okay I never pass up a good conversation yes I love to talk:) but time was running out; I stopped to get gas went into pay and the lady who works there decides to tell me and I quote my jerk of a boyfriend has stolen my money all I could was console her with I felt bad but I didn’t know where this was coming from I really do not know her she is just always so nice to me when I go there and I was taken back when she told me that. I wish I could of chatted longer but for one she was working and the lady behind me I felt like she was throwing daggers at the back of my head with her eyes hahaha and I did have a meet to get to . It’s funny my daughter and son are always saying to me do you know that person because a lot of people will strike up a conversation with me I will talk to anyone if your pleasant to me and I usually can spend a good amount of time with them but sadly not today. It’s funny because a lot of people do not know that about me but then I guess they do not give me the chance to get to know me.
The meet went very well my son and his team won and he broke one of his running records in the hurdles so that was a proud moment for my hubby and I . Tomorrow my son will have an all day meet which will be a very long day for him . My hubby will be going I will not be It’s to much walking and standing for this hip of mine but my heart will be there with him. well I think I will call it a day goodnight everyone.
Good thing I have many doors to my house, many comings and goings lately and I think more to come. I think it makes the kitty Miss Abigail’s head spin. since my son got his drivers license he is constantly going somewhere well in reason …..and my car as well right now it’s fine I do not have to get out has much in the winter my hip does not like the cold .So my Son does do well grabbing things if I need him to but lately I just go with my husband or daughter. When summer gets here it will be a different story he will need to have his own car. He is loving how he can just go and not have to wait for a ride and my husband and I actually enjoy the break of being a taxi. Never thought we would feel this way ,at first it was a little sad I felt not as needed but now I see he just needs me in a different way moral support, we talk more it’s nice this little boy that I once knew now stands in front of me a nice young man and now with my older daughter I have a whole new insight a new relationship of conversations laughs with them and their friends and yes the comings and goings and can’t forget a lot of quiet nights home with my husband also. Funny how life comes back around and so fast.
