It was a Tuesday out and about with my daughter . The first part of it was spent at a doctors appointment that I knew would end up with different opinions ..I won’t even get started.. .but was happily worth it after enjoying lunch out with my daughter at Panera’s ,being once again a chilly day ,a cup of cheddar broccoli soup and grilled cheese tasted so good. Then followed it with a white chocolate Frappuccino with two pumps of raspberry in it from Starbucks . Only get them every so many months if that. It was a perfect treat .It was nice to catch up with my daughter talking about random things and laughing and being silly especially when we went to get her studded tires off and new tires needing to be on to pass inspection … yes another stop we needed to do . But that was more fun then my appointment. At the tire place it was so busy and people looked angry , impatient and some were sleeping in the leather chairs well fake leather but so comfy it felt like we were in a movie theater ,all in a row the chairs were with two screen TVs one with sports playing and one showing our last name and what bay her car was in , the estimated time of how long and oh a third screen showing the guys working on the cars . So we could see them changing her tires . Very interesting. I believe we sat there an hour laughing to ourselves while we texted back and forth to one another so we wouldn’t disturb the people around us … because everyone was so quiet . Either on their phones, reading, or concentrating on the screens and yes sleeping as I stated. Then my phone rang with my son appearing on the screen , I answered with such a whispering voice my son was like whispering back to me asking why I was whispering I told him and he was like oh okayyyy… 😂 I must say the hour went by quick . And my daughter was satisfied . I do not understand why everyone or for the most part a good amount of them looking so miserable. We were all their for the same thing tires that’s all they do. And it was quick. After that we headed for home , where leftovers for supper would be what I would be preparing. It’s amazing that it’s already going on 8 at night. Doesn’t seem possible. Well time to read some blogs and then my book . Have a great night everyone.🙂
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! 🙂
Day 4 of still down… for a bit last night I thought I kicked it out of me , and though finally I could get some sleep. NOT! Wide awake because I have been resting so much just watching TVs so just been sitting around during the day . Then the body aches came back and the night was a long one . Woke feeling lousy if I could of slept probably would of been better this morning. .. not helping that it was a mild day and now dropping and the winds have picked up so here we go again with the change of the weather. Today my daughter laid on the couch still not feeling good as well. So as we sipped cups of tea we watched a movie a friend of hers gave her to watch. Must say so different then I thought and the twists in this movie where so many , just when you thought you figured it out ..no another twist came along. . So worth a watch . Now it’s evening and the wind is roaring banging against the house at the moment .I believe Miss Abigail is down with her mom . Earlier she sat in front of me starring at me , nothing like getting starred down by a cat🙄 I had to send a pic to my daughter who was in shock .. she told me I could send her down . I think she went down after on her own. Nooo she’s back! Hahaha. Well I guess it’s time to now try settling in bed…see if I can get into a book …
It’s a quiet Friday February morning! So happy it’s February . It’s closer to my son coming home , as of next week it will be 4 weeks until he will he flys home. If you read my last posts of my stupidity 🙄 it’s all good. If anything my mess up with Facebook I believe made him think I was missing him , well of course I’m missing him but I think to the point I was really sad .. yes I am emotional person but that goes either way. Around 6 last night I got a message from him “hey! “So I replied Hi ! He said “How are you” ? Right then I knew he saw and wondered … knowing my son the how are you means so much more (haha) I replied I’m good ! you? He said nothing so then I told him about all the pics he did a haha and said wow you did get a lot of likes 🙄 I said did you see your page it tagged you .. you can delete he replied no I’m fine with it …phew!!! So yes all good with a mother and technology ..
Now talking about dreams ,myself and blogger friends who been having some strange ones… I had a very strange one last night .. one that is so strange you wake with a panic feeling and your happy it was only a dream.. it wasn’t scary I don’t know it was like being in a musical but a old back in the day kind of thing but strangely it was in my Town and the town looked back in the past but not and the music was old , it was strange because it wasn’t scary and I can’t piece it together but whatever startled me I do not know . Very strange is all I can say. And what’s strange it was like I dreamed it before or a deja vu.. That’s another one to write down… as I woke from that I could hear my daughter in the kitchen getting herself coffee . Our house is small so not tight quarters but it doesn’t take much to say hi or good morning and it echoes down the hall to our kitchen .. being a raised ranch style house. She came in sat on my bed and said good morning .. yawning as she told me she did not sleep well. And the coffee was a necessity before jumping in the shower to get ready for work. I did tell her about the dream , she tried to remember if we talked about musicals the day before. .. nothing . Then she went for her shower as I did . Now enjoying my coffee in a quiet house except for the sound of the news . Today I will get out run and do some errands and tonight my hubby and I will order out at our local pizza shop .. my daughter works till this evening then she will be with her boyfriend . A quiet Friday night as well. Tomorrow we will conquer the grocery store . Super Bowl is Sunday so the grocery store will be busy … always some kind of an occasion for people to need to eat and celebrate… its a night game so my hubby and I will stay home and watch it . I’m going to make some chili and cornbread have some chicken wings, hubby will enjoy a few beers and I a cup of wine. Work the next day for my hubby so he doesn’t want to celebrate too much.
Time to finish my coffee run my errands. Have a good day everyone.
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.
having a vetch for Sunsets. Yes along with my coffee is something I have had for awhile ,tonight driving home with my daughter after spending the day with her as she ran some errands at our big chain store and then a ride through the Starbucks drive thru enjoying a white mocha with raspberry latte we headed home ,the sun setting a bit later as each day goes by is so nice and the sunsets have been gorgeous . I captured several but this one is my favorite . So orange the sky started out pink then it came to this. Breath taking!. I took so many pics had to delete some ..crowding my phone…but this one was such a keeper. A very nice ending to the day with my daughter.
