This afternoon my daughter and I ventured out when we left the house it was down pouring. But knowing we were headed for our coffee and lattes it was perfect weather. Yes that’s what we do …we love our lattes. Starbucks had their pumpkin spice flavor out so we enjoyed them while we chatted in the parking lot where we were going to shop ,but coffee first always a given with us . And Starbucks pumpkin spice is the best! After we realized it was a holiday and all the college kids would be shopping. We managed to get through the crowded store and get the things we were looking for. The store was pretty much turned upside down by the college students. All in all it was a nice day spent with my daughter and when we walked out of the store the rain had stopped and the sun peaked out from the clouds . It was so beautiful to see. It’s a quiet rainy night now , yes the rain has decided to make its presence known again. The sound of the rain is calming though and I’m feeling happier ,chatted with my son earlier and he’s happy settling in with a routine. He has one more day until classes starts and is happily keeping himself busy. Now it’s my turn . As of tomorrow I will start my routine . And on the top of my list is spend more time with friends ! Get out more , and yes take care of me . 🙂
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 .
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.
It was nice getting out after a day spent in after our snow day on Monday. Woke up to a winter wonderland the fresh snow look beautiful especially with the beautiful morning sun making the snow covered trees glitter and the the sky couldn’t have been any bluer. The day started with chocolate chip pancakes of course …it was national pancake day so then my daughter and I headed out we had a late relaxing lunch at our favorite restaurant Panera’s the best as always so nice and fresh and filling never can go wrong eating there. Then it was off to Barnes And Noble bookstore where we went separate ways as usual when we go there looking at books of our own liking and myself looking at Adult coloring books I so love to do . after that we ended our day out with of course a latte at Starbucks can’t beat the white chocolate with a pump of raspberry in it so delicious !! you must try it. coming home no sunset to capture but that’s okay can’t have everything God gave us a beautiful day and I feel blessed to have shared this with my daughter . I hope all of you had a beautiful day.
I must say this day went by fast… I guess that happens when it’s a great day, So my daughter and her boyfriend and I decided to go to our local candle store, Yankee Candle, love buying these wax melts or some people call them wax tarts for our wax warmers. we knew it was a holiday but oh my it was crazy …..people everywhere and their kids too at least the kids were smiling 🙂 not their parents lol must say I kind of miss those days. my kids would have been running around too . yes I did say I miss those days .I was the mom that when summer vacation came my friends were dreading it trying to think of places to send their kids I embraced it. I loved having my kids home with me .loved bringing them to the outdoor theater, and pitching a tent in the front yard and see how they actually lasted after scaring themselves . it was interesting to watch . My Son didn’t join us he stayed home because he had homework and studying to do for school and wanted to get that done . Don’t blink because you may just miss something that is how it feels for me more and more everyday I am happy that my daughter shares the love of candles and now we can go together and shop picking out all kinds of new scents and then ending the day shopping with a stop at the coffee shop for a nice hot latte. and yes bringing my son home a treat as well …:) you never grow out of that. well everyone time to cozy up on the couch on this very cold night and catch up on my show.
