Changes..

Credits to Pexels photo :Since my son graduated from high school in June , it’s been a crazy time . Summer spent with him doing his thing ,running with friends .. working .. but there was more bonfires and family parties since he would be heading off to Basic training in the fall. The memories of high school already fading . And the new changes starting with now both kids adults and living their life. I started to settle in with the quietness , less of my sons friends being around less of him being around as well as my daughter. More time spent with my hubby , more weekends spent taking a drive getting coffee , watching movies with takeouts with him or quiet moments while he slept on the couch and I actually enjoying a book. . Redoing certain parts of our home repainting .. changing the decor . It was time. So all good with this change . Then yesterday as I drove through town getting my errands done I noticed no one at the school .I need to go by to get to the Post Office, some kids walking through town , then it dawned on me …February vacation even though I have read blog post with the talk of vacation it just didn’t phase me .

First February vacation childless! and just another week for me. Loved Feb Vacation ..kids having sleepovers making sure there was a ton of food (snacks ) in the house, movies the kids would have piled up to watch ,blankets and pillows all laid out on our living room floor in front of the Tv , the Xbox out ready to hookup to the tv , board games , ready, yeah for us it pretty much was staying home and doing things here late nights. oh there was days sledding and even nighttime sledding with the yard lit up ..till they were cold and soaked so hot chocolate for everyone. Then settling in the living room and as my hubby and I laid in bed the sounds of giggling from the girls jumping and laughing from the boys till silents took over ..with them finally falling asleep .It’s a bittersweet thought as I was laying in bed thinking about it ..especially with the house being so quiet and I in bed earlier then midnight if kids were here. This is the moments when life slaps you in the face and you realize how far you come and how much time as gone by… kind of a awakening how fast life really fly’s by.. I miss them but life has to move on keep moving forward.and I guess that’s why the memories we make are so important. So make a lot of them . Enjoy the time …even if there are times the kids have you wanting to scream 🙂 oh I remember those days and can actually laugh because even now with my son being 18 and listening to what his plans are when he gets home in a couple of weeks makes me feel that the screaming , rolling of my eyes time are not over just yet.. the good thing I can walk away if need be and let him figure it out .. hopefully 🙄lol!

Photo Monday !

Hi everyone did this in the past .. Photo Monday . I’m thinking of doing this up again ..because I know I’m putting up an abundance of photos up lol All week . Now I’ll just put up several every Monday . I hope you enjoy .And hope you do not get sick of my sunsets , I just have a obsession for them and the rays of the sun. I seem to be able to capture . I will try not to overwhelm you with them. Here are several this Monday .

Another calm night.

It’s another night settling in early the weather is helping with this.. cold and dreary… once again the kids are out a recurring thing I believe it will be all summer. Tomorrow will be an earlier morning wake up call our tv provider will be coming out to the house to do a well needed update …I should of updated our tv boxes yrs ago but was too afraid they would take away our package that I have had since the day we went with this company and I love what we have for channels I get a bit testy when they try to sell me a new package that is nothing I will watch BUT it’s pricey and that’s what they want more money .so I told them fine come out update equipment but if you change my package and I end up paying more I will cancel and find another provider … well they didn’t want that so I’m keeping my package and price . Love my shows and news but I also like other things as well that I want to spend our money on. Will see … Now it’s time for America’s Got Talent . Love Simon Cowell his opinion is so much fun especially his expressions😂 okay going to enjoy !

This was the sky on Saturday evening . You know how I love my Sunsets . So it’s a perfect photo to start back up on my Photo Monday ,that for some reason let it get away from me . I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and happy to sayI I love how the days are getting longer so it’s okay if I had to wait a bit longer for the sun to set.🙂

Rainy day …adult Coloring❤️

On this cold rainy 1st day of November I enjoyed it by relaxing with my adult Coloring , after everything around the house was done I relaxed with this pretty pattern, been working on it off and on at the end of the day when I needed to unwind for the day  and then had some time this afternoon as well . Love coloring.❤️
