It’s a cool Monday night . Outside the sky is speckled in stars and the crescent moon bright enough to cast shadows along the edges of our woods. The frogs you can hear in the distance and firefly’s are out and about making it look magical as they light up the ground and the trees . Inside the house is quiet and dark as everyone including Miss Abigails is tucked away in their rooms for the night. I thought I would take advantage and cozy up on the couch and enjoy my next new book.
My mind changed quickly as I saw the front outside light turn on . It’s probably just an animal running through the yard… but no I couldn’t leave it at that , my imagination got the best of me. Earlier on Facebook there was a post that someone escaped from the jail around 2pm and they still hadn’t found him. To keep a look out. Now it’s about an hour and a half away from where he escaped and honestly I do not think he would come our way it would be too easy to get caught. But sadly my imagination wouldn’t let it go so I shut the light off checked the doors again . And ran down the hall to our bedroom ( hahaha) now I’ve tucked myself in bed . This is the girl who just received a stack of Stephen King books from my sister to read … hmm will see how that goes . Ridiculous … right? It’s been a strange day so why not top it off with a strange night. ..Spooking myself I really good at. 🙄
Today it felt like Fall the air was fresh crisp and cool .. the sun was out but it was just perfect after finishing things around the house and pulling myself away from the news or I would get more disgusted then I already was .. what’s going on lately in politics is a bit too much . I do not talk politics on social media sites I follow or to anyone but my family my husband , kids , the rest of the family no. So not here on my blog as well …with that said it was a beautiful day my kids off doing their own thing so it was a quiet afternoon I took advantage of the nice weather and enjoyed sometime outside. . Tonight enjoying a hot cup of hot chocolate since it’s a cool night and I’m feeling cold . I enjoyed some adult coloring also while chatting with my husband since the night was as quiet as the afternoon was. Just Miss Abigail roaming around the house making noice. Now hubby is watching some football and I think iI will watch with him and my son who just happened to walk through the door and sat now .. I will take the moment when I can .good night everyone.
Today is the first day of Fall and it feels it . As Winnie The Pooh would say it’s a blustery day… the temps cool and crisp clean air coming through the open windows, making a hot cup of morning coffee taste so good. Not much to report the usual.Tomorrow I think we may go for a ride towards Vermont and see how the leaves are changing there .It was a food shopping day so my husband and I tackled the distaste task as quickly as possible. (Hahaha) yes that bad.. people in grocery stores are not one to mess with …people want their food. (hahaha) we went towards the middle of the day so my husband could work on the barn some more trying to get electricity out there. By the time we arrived home it was supper time . So that’s all done and cleaned up and it has just hit 7:00 in the evening and it’s just about dark outside. last week it was 7:30 . Soon it will be 5:30 , Also a cool night. My daughter is home down in her place resting with some hot tea nursing a cold . My sons out at a football game with a friend my husband is watching the baseball game . I think I will try finishing the book I’ve been reading on the last two chapters . Then I can start the book I bought when I was with my son. So time to put on the kettle for some hot water and make some tea and enjoy my book . Have a goodnight everyone.
It’s late morning enjoying my coffee outside , it’s beautiful out , a fresh breeze blowing through the trees the humidity has passed . Birthdays are finished this summer and less then a week school and colleges will start up again . My daughter still sleeping enjoying her days off . My son just getting home from a early mountain race with a buddy of his and now showered and taking in a nap. Hubby is happily puttering around the yard for once, since all the rain has put things on hold so everything is over grown. It feels like a calm and peaceful day after a nice but busy weekend. My hubby is off for the week . Not doing anything special maybe some day trips and my hubby and son may take hike together. In Oct we are thinking of going to Maine after my son leaves for Basic Training and my daughter will stay and watch the house with Miss Abigail and a friend for a couple of days. So for now It’s a nice mental and physical break for him with all the long hours of work he has put in this summer . The leaves are slowly turning but not very pretty all the rain has made the spotty and discolored in an unpleasant way… hopefully this will change and will have a good foliage this Fall. Time to get off here and enjoy my swing a bit and enjoy the sound of the wind and the birds .🙂
Nightly reading.. hubby’s in bed early work morning so I’m in the living room with my daughter and Miss Abigail reading our books. It’s been really relaxing especially since it’s to hot and buggy outside to star gaze. So nice and cool and comfy inside . Well time to read .. goodnight everyone!
After a night sitting around a roaring fire with family enjoying good food , drinks , and much laughter and singing ( hahaha) read my earlier post about that 🙂 I did the struggle after settling down well after 1 … I woke at 6 ughh… threw the pillow over my head and fell back to sleep waking up at 9 so I guess it was time the pull myself out of bed and grab some well needed coffee before heading to the shower .. Im sit in the living room looking at the rain coming down as I’m enjoying my coffee and the news , I can’t believe the change from last night stars in the sky a beautiful fire, warm temps to 57 temps dark and rainy ,wind blowing and top it off my favorite weather lady “s last day on our channel .. I know what your thinking what ?? is she kidding ? ( hahaha) but sorry I’m not and I’m okay (hahaha) it’s just when you get use to someone on your favorite news show .. ok lame but sadly I’m just this simple 🙂 I guess one more cup of coffee is needed to start this day. Food shopping it is and then who knows maybe a good book or some Netflix after…
