I woke late which has not happen for a bit but then again I didn’t fall asleep until well after 1:30 in the morning that has not happen in a bit as well. I dragged myself out of bed ran a brush through my hair since showering the night before and then headed straight for the coffee . Which on this very cold morning tasted so good. After chatting with both of my kids changed for the the day and hubby and I tackled food shopping grabbed the house groceries then the things we needed for my sons family going away gathering.after going home and putting groceries away . We were off for mum shopping and that consist of backroad driving . Nothing like a ride in the country on beautiful quiet back roads with the leaves changing . Yes there as been better foliage years but here and there we were able to find some pretty sites. Arriving at the place we love to buy our Fall mums at was booming with people . Their mums are gorgeous and a good price. We purchased 6 big ones nice and full and their color is so vibrate their beautiful. Next weekend maybe some pumpkins, right now their a bit pricey. As we arrived home and was parking the truck their in our yard looking straight at us was the cutest baby fox we stayed in the truck for a moment to reassure it that it was fine. That it wouldn’t be harmed. After a moment it headed back into the woods. As I write this the boys (coyotes) are around we could hear them yipping and the crunching of the leaves outside our bedroom window so yes very close. Now that’s not good. This is when I wish so much we still had our pups to scare them away . He did such a great job making them know they needed to leave. It’s been a nice relaxing fun busy day . …and very active night with our wildlife . I guess now it’s time to call it a night and get some sleep going to be busy and emotionally exhausting next three days tomorrow family over for food and see you later not goodbye and then tying up the last few details and packing things and getting him to where he will leave from for Basic Training in Missouri . So Night everyone. I’ll keep you posted.
When your sitting outside on your front deck over looking the yard and your enjoying a book in the warmth of the sunlight and you see and hear these guys coming for a visit .. they stop for a moment when they have spotted me looking at them but know their not going to be bothered so they enjoy my front yard and I just enjoy the beautiful sight of the wildlife that is a benefit of living in the country.
When you come home and drive into your driveway and you have the radio up with one of your favorite songs playing and you see this ! The music the sound of the car didn’t even phase them , they just went along doing what they do . When I got out of the car they just looked at me not scared at all . I sad hi guys thinking they would run and no they didn’t . I guess I can talk to the turkeys now as well (hahaha) just love country living.
Summer nights …relaxing outside shooting stars , so peaceful❤️
This weekend my hubby and I went for a ride .. let’s say we where bored….the house was quiet we didn’t feel like doing much around the house , so yes the laundry /junk room didn’t get decluttered .. 🙄 we decided to pickup an order that came in at our local store it was towers (shelf’s ) that went along with our TVs entertainment center . I used gift cards my mother in-law had given me for a gift. Then we just took a ride through the back roads and farm lands on our way home. I hope you enjoy the photos of a peak into a part of my world.
Three day weekend rides are so relaxing. My hubby had a three day weekend also it’s the start of April vacation week for my son. The first photo was taken today (Monday )we woke to this hitting the windows it’s really not snow more like sleet and now it’s being washed away from the buckets of rain that has been coming down all day. The next photos are of our weekend ride before all the sleet arrived . We went on a back road and yes indeed a back road no guardrails to protect you if you veered off some parts along the river where pretty steep that I couldn’t take a photo of because I hate heights 😂this river is called the Green river if you notice yes it’s Green color because of the clay in it , a lot of people find it refreshing in the summer if your daring ..it’s so cold…it’s also a perfect river to fish in. It was a nice ride even though the temps where only in the 30’s but nice and warm in the truck. Spring is just not wanting to come.. now their saying we are looking at a cool Month of May …. oh I hope their wrong. My son was happy to be inside today after his hike /run with his track team well the ones who where daring enough to do so with the coach. Where they ended up standing in a foot of snow and extremely cold . Which sadly found out running /hiking up in a T-shirt and jogging pants.. he wasn’t lazy inside today tho just inside at the gym working out.. any how this weather is crazy but the ride was nice ..would like to see some flowers tho…. especially my roses would be a beautiful sight 🙂
Good Morning ! Enjoying my coffee and happily another morning of sometime with my son, he’s not a big talker well not at home at school he is but that’s always the way when your a teenager. He had good run may have made it to All States will find out today he missed it by a second in one race that he ran. Very proud of him.
Back tracking : last night when he arrived home , if you read my last post he had a track meet 3hrs away ,my hubby and I couldn’t make it so we waited for him to come home my hubby caved into sleep , of course I was up ..in bed but awake. He arrived after midnight and I heard him come in so I looked down our hall and could see him peeking out the door …hmm I’m like what is he doing ? Next minute he shuts the door locked it turned the kitchen light off and walking faster then normal down the hall to his room he spots me looking at him he says “oh your awake I’m scared” I’m like what! He tells me that as he got out of the car and walking up to our house he heard this screaming crying howling noise I’m like oh the boys are out (coyotes) I call them the boys. I asked if they where in our woods he said that he was trying to figure that out but wasn’t sure he said close ..maybe ?The most eerie sound of the wild to hear if their hunting it sends chills up your spine . After that I just let him get some sleep. and I did as well . Then this morning it was just him and I before he went to school so that was nice . Like I said before ,few and far between the moments with him. Now all is quiet everyone’s at work and school and I’m catching up on the news.. sad once again today .. my heart is breaking for all those angels and their families In Florida .😥 never take any thing or anyone for granted that is why even if I have only moments here and there with my children who are always on the go I will take that . It’s all special to me . So hug your kids tell them you love them everyday.❤️ with that it’s time to get busy myself do somethings around the house . Have a great day everyone.
