t’s was another rainy day , the rain was coming down fast and steady. Making it a cold and dreary day. Even though it looked gloomy out it felt nice and cozy inside. Crockpot cooking supper once again. Miss Abigail sleeping in her chair . And I folding some laundry in the living room while watching my daytime show but I believe what made it feel cozy was off and on looking towards my kitchen and its fresh new paint . I’m still amazed how much I’m loving this red and how easily I adjusted to it. I guess I was ready for a change after all. It’s evening now the rain has stopped and the sun has peaked itself out from the clouds. This weekend my hubby will finish painting the kitchen and putting in a breakfast bar. And then it’s outside to paint.. sadly our front and back decks need painting . The last two winters have taken a toll on them. He isn’t looking forward to it but is happy he will at least be outside but for now we are enjoying finishing the kitchen . . I’ll post pics when the breakfast bar is in . It’s amazing what a new paint color can do .
Well this three day weekend went by fast…. it was nice not having to be anywhere and having some down time . I know your probably thinking she always has down time🙄 but the thought of not thinking of what I need or didn’t do was nice .. I just cozied in under a blanket with my book , journal, tea or hot chocolate and yes my coffee. With some good conversation with my husband and daughter and her boyfriend. And texting quite a bit with my son in Missouri 🙂 Sunday was a day of snow and then a beautiful sunset in the evening and ending the day with an amazing Lunar Eclipse I actually manage to stay up for. My daughter and her boyfriend did too. It took two hours . But it was defiantly worth it. Thankfully we watched it from my bedroom window, being that is was only 2 out there was no way I was going outside …bad enough the house was cold so getting into my bed with the electric blanket on felt good.
Today the temps stayed at 2 so I did not leave the house. My husband and daughter did they wanted to try a coffee from our local coffee shop down the road. There was an almond marshmallow flavored one so they brought me one back. So good . While they were out grabbing coffees I made Shepard’s pie for supper. And wrote in my journal. Chatted with my son not as much today . As he was enjoying his last day of his four day weekend relaxing with his army buddies and getting ready to start back up with their MOS classes for the week. And even earlier wake up he’s not looking forward too again. Back to routine tomorrow for my husband and daughter. While I run some errands . So I guess I will finish up one more thing and go settle under my blankets and read a bit before getting some sleep but not before I say goodnight to my son.
It’s Friday and the temps have only been in the teens if that .. with the wind blowing it makes it even colder. I had to go out in it this morning but then came home did some cleaning up and now cozied up in my chair wrapped in a blanket reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society . I’m enjoying this so much . So yes I do like it a lot . It’s different and refreshing from what I’m used to reading . Now I’m going to cozy in a bit more and enjoy some reading this evening a little while longer since my daughter will be home soon and may want me to watch a movie with her that she mentioned before she left for work if not I’ll read even longer🙂
I went to the library and checked out 3 books and two movies ,the movies will watch over the weekend. So tonight I am thinking is a good night to cozy up with a blanket hot chocolate and one of the books . Since the temperatures have dropped . The last couple of nights it’s been chatting with a friend online , I think we chatted till well after midnight. So tonight I think I will read. Even though I enjoyed our talk, I think it will be good to balance it out now with some reading and my friend can settle as well. Out of the three books I have starting with the smaller one to get myself back into reading . My minds been so occupied with things I needed the friendly chat . I’m hoping I can concentrate. . I guess I will give it a try.
By now you must have realize my daughter and I love our coffee and love spending time going to get coffee and enjoy our coffee with good conversations and a lot of laughs. So this week instead of driving forty minutes to Starbucks …which my daughter and I love . We decided to go local very local like minutes away from our house so I’m sure or maybe not thinking why drive forty mins when you can drive only several minutes for coffee? I’ll answer anyways , because our local coffee is very expensive but then when you really come down to it , for a forty minute drive using up gas for a dollar less specialty coffee it’s worth paying that dollar more coffee at the local and using less gas unless there is other places we need to go . Their holiday coffees we found out are delicious and use more natural ingredients . My daughter and I ordered a Peppermint Mocha hot coffee with chocolate flavor cream on top and then they drizzled chocolate syrup over it and sprinkled pieces of candy cane over it . It was so delicious! And the coffee shop is so cozy . The bakery goods are delicious and many of but the coffee alone is just enough for us. Will defiantly be going back .
It’s the first snowy night of the season . It started around 7 this evening and now at 11:30 it’s going strong . Everything covered in white . Usually I would be checking the tv every hour for a school cancellation . Instead it’s a new season , new chapter and instead I’m laying in bed with the house all dark and locked up for the night, my daughter is home with Miss Abigail . So quiet as I lay in bed keeping warm while writing a letter by flashlight .. yes a new one for me (hahaha) didn’t want to keep the light on as my hubby is sleeping and yes I could of went into another part of the house but preferred my warm bed. And wanted to write my son a letter while I had things to write about to him. It was actually kind of fun . Yeah doesn’t take much to make me happy . Gave me a feeling of Deja vu when I was younger and knew I should of been sleeping but was writing letters to my friends . And if my mom saw the light on she would tell me to go to bed. Good ol days… didn’t think so back then, but what we learn as we get older.well letter is done and no more worries of wondering about school cancellations. So time to get some sleep and see how much white stuff there is in the morning. Good night!
It’s been a hot humid very rainy summer that has brought reading back into my life. I’m feeling like an avid reader again. I’m almost done with the book I just started , well okay I started last week but that’s good for me , since I haven’t read like this in yrs. I’m liking this one author and I know it’s going to get pricey buying this authors books so I guess it’s time to head back to the library . Sadly it’s been yrs being in one . do they even give out library cards anymore? yes that was a serious question. I’m actually feeling like it will be awkward walking back into one.. the Good thing as well I can rent movies too since my hubby and I have been watching more movies lately. .
Our town library is unique it’s very little but has a lot of books and movies and the books they don’t have I can order from them and they can get them from other library’s well if they still do that . Yes once again I remind you so out of this scene . Any how the library very old and made out of stone if you look at the photo. I think it’s quaint and peaceful yes it’s a little dark looking ( hahaha) but inside it’s warm and cozy especially in the winter. . They do a lot of business Im always seeing cars there when it’s open. I guess on Thursday I will go back and check all this out and see if it’s the same librarian as well. . Looking at the time I see once again time as gotten away from me and it’s getting late so I guess it’s time to get some sleep . Out to lunch with my hubbies side of the family tomorrow . As both kids work so just my hubby and I and then who know what else we will do … I was thinking of checking out our local candle shop to get some fall scent candles for the house . So maybe we can do that as well. I guess it’s off to bed now good night..
