Headed out a bit early with my daughter her car needed an old change . So off to dealership she bought it from . I’m happy she has such great service ,where I bought mine from it’s horrible , all we had to do was drive into the open bay they asked what was needed and 20 mins later we where off to enjoy some lunch . As you see I tried to go as healthy as I could being that yes it was eating out.. so soup and a salad no bread… it was really good and light . Now our next stop was not as healthy.. sorry but not sorry.. we both enjoyed a Carmel chocolate chip macchiato 🤷🏻♀️have to always get our coffee when we are near a Starbucks … okay actually any coffee place when we are out (hahaha) not a complete day out with my daughter if there is no coffee involved. After we hit the Walmart and grabbed a few things that where needed and I found a cute blouse I couldn’t let go of🙂
On a different note. We headed to this Big Y gas station our local store around our area has gas stations you can get a discount if you have their card. I went in with her to pay to grab a water. And… there was my daughters ex boyfriend. Can you say awkward! Well not for me but for my daughter. She did pretty good I must say.. he did as well a bit surprised when we walked in he said hi to me first and they talked a bit but sadly I could see his eyes tear up … the hopeless try to make everyone happy person open her mouth and asked if he was doing okay and he started to tell us … okay this guy is such a loss soul . He’s never been very happy had a hard childhood so him with a relationship is hard but other then that he’s really a good person and means well but him and my daughter were just not good for one another. He is still friends with my son and I on Facebook . My son likes the guy and felt bad for him . So once again my mouth opened and I said if he ever wanted someone to talk to message me because well the line behind us was picking up and we had to let him get back to work . Okay the look on my daughters face was not pretty…. we arrive at her car and she said oh mom why did you tell him that? And you know he won’t talk to you.. okay I’m fine with that but I just had to offer ..sadly it’s who I am . Does it get me in trouble at times yes .. My heart kind of breaks for him . I feel bad for people who are not happy with their life .. I know not my place so .. so be it I put it out there and if he does I will not mind being an ear for him. On our way home it was a bit quiet but she got over it and all was good. Now my house is filled with chatty laughing guys . A beautiful sound . My son arrived home with a friend so their cooking up food and the house is not quiet. Oh how I will miss this when he is at college… I’m trying to line my self up with things to do friends to see and talk to it will all come together I’m sure .
As long as last week was ,as short as this weekend is. It’s just hitting 7:30 and the sun has already disappeared below the trees and settled into the mountain well thats how it looks . Peepers no more . Do they stop making noise at a certain time of the season? And no wildlife as well . At least the humidity is slowly dissipating. It’s a bit more bearable . A new week will be beginning and plans are being made to fill it up . Monday will be spent eyewear shopping with my daughter who needs to get new glasses and wants my opinion. Maybe I can find a book or two while we are out and about. Then Wednesday my daughter and I will catch an afternoon movie. We want to see the new The lion King , my daughter loved it as a little girl . It looks really good . So looking forward to that. All fun things to do this week. Then the birthday weekend will arrive and I can’t wait for that to pass by … not for my son I love celebrating my kids birthdays it’s mine Id like to forget. So with that said my son is accumulating a good room full of items for his college dorm. Unbelievable he will be starting college in a month . National Guard drill will be starting up for him the first of August so he has that to do as well. Things will get busy soon for him and I less busy….. less busy worrying about him (hahaha) he will be tucked away in school. I’m really hoping he likes it. Time will tell. In the mean time I will enjoy both my kids while their home together . A rarity these days. It’s 8 now and it’s getting dark already . My son is out on his bike for a quick ride before it gets completely dark. Waiting to hear the roar of it’s engine soon pulling into the driveway. Oh how he loves that bike. Hubby will be going to bed in a half n hour ,4 in the morning comes quick . To early for me to settle so I’ll take advantage of the quietness and read some more of my book. Hoping I can get into it more. Not ready to give up on it yet. Well until then I guess I will get a couple of things done . Have a good night everyone!
After a rainy humid Sunday ,the night had given away to a windy night …waking to a sunny cold ,windy Monday not feeling like June one bit. After laying in bed dragging myself out of my warm bed. I grabbed a quick shower and a cup of coffee. accomplishing a few thing around the house before my daughter woke . We were going to spend the day out ,check out the sales at the candle shop and grab some coffee. The sale was good so my daughter stocked up on candle melts of her favorite scents as well as car freshener’s . I bought some wax melts and this quote wall decore for my kitchen. I love what it says . My daughter agreed when we saw it. Remarking how I am always talking about the simple things saying I needed to buy it , after we left there we headed to grab our coffees and then headed home chatting, laughing about random things and singing songs that my daughter had programmed into her radio. Had a beautiful day with her. We may not do this as often as we use to but when we do we cherish the time and we always have a lovely day out. and yes my quote decor is hanging up in my kitchen and it fits perfect.💖
One night ago I was thinking about how my daughter and I would take a ride to get a coffee and then sit at a cemetery … yes a cemetery . Odd hmm ..not to us ,especially if we have love ones their. She has been busy with work and friends ,boyfriend , so I would take any moment with her and be happy with that . Thinking maybe that sitting in a cemetery was not something she was comfortable with anymore had crossed my mind as well. Then today she said let’s go grab a coffee I said okay and off we went chatting away as she drove. We grabbed our ice coffees and she said I think I will drive up to the cemetery it’s been so busy haven’t been up there yet this season ( my father in-law is at the one we went to. My mind was blown .. I couldn’t believe how I just thought about this. Sometimes we are so in tune with one another it scares the both of us … So as we drove in a couple pushing a baby carriage were walking around . The sun was out and it was warm . Two beautiful bushes in full bloom of pink flowers greeted us that sat around a sign of the name of the cemetery .The grass was luscious and green the birds were all around you could hear them . We parked and sat There in the car talking , laughing enjoying our coffee . Letting the sun warm down into the car warming us . All respectful this was . There is something about a cemetery whether you drive through , walk through, or just sit and talk ,and reflect and you will find no judgement , no argument , no rush, just stillness peacefulness , a serene feeling. A moment to shut out the world hear nothing but the birds the sound of feet of people passing by with a smile on their face . Feel a slight breeze on your neck or the warmth of the sun . As you sit and talked just as my daughter and I did . I really can’t say how long we sat their , we didn’t look at the time . It didn’t matter. 🙂
Well this Saturday seem to fly by.. it’s hard to believe it’s 7 in the evening. My hubby and I slept in a bit. Then we enjoyed our coffee and and breakfast . A bit later we headed out the door to get some food shopping done and the food my husband needs to fast with starting on Sunday for his colonoscopy on Monday… it was a nice ride the sun was shining and thankfully shopping was quick and easy ..then we headed for our after shopping coffee treat .. lol always can enjoy a coffee. 🙂 Arrived home with a ice coffee for my daughter , if my daughter is home and any of us get coffee we alway bring her a coffee home as well . She was happy to have one and enjoyed while she got ready for work. Worked a later shift today. Around 4 this afternoon my hubby watching tv while laying on the couch and I reading blogs plus my friend texting me off and on so I’m so focused on the two tasks…. my cell phone lights up with my sons face staring at me . I answered … he answers with a hey I’m on my way home I’ll be home in an hour. I’m like WHAT!! I swear my heart skipped a beat … my hubby looking at me puzzled , then my son says well in a week in a half at this time I will be heading home . I then realize ,came out of my dream that he was released sooner .. he chuckled then said in a sincere tone …that sounded nice to say ” I’ll be home in an hour” and I told him in deed it did. I guess I showed him how much I miss him and how ready I am for him to be back. We chatted for a bit until he let me go then I received a text of a photo of him in a CPR class . I swear he has a twin . There looked to be two of my son lol. He thought that was funny when I told him. An hour later he sent me a photo of a pizza and soda with the caption , Goood I just laughed I told my hubby well he’s happy he had a pizza delivered to the base . This only happens on weekends and in the AIT training. So he was happy. . Now my hubby and I are relaxing I’m thinking of reading while he is enjoying a documentary ,
I woke to a beautiful sunny morning after a restless night . I don’t believe it’s the evenings Starbucks white mocha with raspberry latte that was a decaf ,my daughter brought home for me when she was out with her boyfriend . It was so good . Early on Thursday I had showed her a Starbucks cinnamon spice shortbread cookie latte that they posted on Instagram telling my daughter how good and comforting it sounded, she stated that her and her boyfriend were headed that way and would bring me one home on their way back. Well I guess a lot of people saw the same Instagram post because they were out of the makings for that flavor so that’s when she brought me the next best flavor I mentioned. Anyway I don’t think that was the reason of my restless night . I’ve been thinking too much about the family of the husband , dad that was killed in the snowmobile accident.. my heart just breaks for them and I take it to heart too much…Only human… so after waking I jumped in the shower then grabbed my morning coffee and my daughters laptop and paid some bills online then finished with that and cleaned the kitchen up a bit and got ready to head out to see our tax guy to drop our taxes off for him to do. On the way home I called my daughter told her I was running to McDonald’s to grab a frappe and a bite to eat she said she wanted one and some fries so I treated us both to a mocha Frappe and some fries .Then headed home. We chatted for a bit while we enjoyed our drinks and food. It was a nice short conversation since she had to get ready for work. Whether big or small , 5 mins or an hour with her I’ll take it. . Supper is done and cleaned up and now just settling watching the nightly news with my husband . After I think I will read some more of my book . It’s getting good. Im happy I’m getting into it after being in a slump with reading. Saturday my husband and I will go food shopping and then he will start on his fasting and eating lightly for his annual colonoscopy on Monday that I will drive him too. So another quiet evening but I will not complain , not one bit! 🙂
