As I sat at the parking lot in the quietness of my car while my daughter went quickly into the store . The late evening was showing it’s arrival with the darkening sky the parking lot light came on. Setting a dim shadow across the parking lot . People walked in and out of the store . As I watched I could hear the echoing sounds from the outside the laughter and chatter of people . Some young girls holding on one another laughing to one another and zig zagging as they bumped into one another . There were some where they walked in alone smile on their face and a bounce in their footsteps looking like they found the key to life’s happiness. Then there was the people who walked alone at a slow unsure pace shoulders slouched and no smile upon their face. Maybe a bad day .. or just thinking? All I know is yes I was thinking .. always thinking. Sometimes we think we can perceive someone by their appearance their actions. Sometimes not But do we ever really know their story. Do we care ? Should we ? Yes I believe so . I think we should keep our eyes wide open . You never know when you will see someone’s actions for a cry for help , for a listening ear a shoulder to lean on. Just to care even if it lifts them up in that moment or day. If there is something their going through. And why should we be aware ? maybe one day we may need to have , Hope someone will notice our actions and ask if we need a shoulder to lean on.
This mild Fall evening the sky is breathtaking. I felt the need to post it . I haven’t posted my sunsets in awhile and this one was a keeper. Enjoy . I know I did.
Half way through this week already . And a very humid Wednesday. Enjoyed my coffee and some small talk with my son this morning. As the humidity kept rolling in . Thankfully the new air conditioner is in and works great ! So great my son asked if we could turn it off as he pulled on a sweatshirt. Let’s see after going for a run and a swim early morning he sat with his damp suit on trying to finish some last minute college info. I just sat there shaking my head at him. Okay I will admit I did lower the function on it Since I was cold 😂I actually went outside to warm up. Let’s see that lasted about 3 mins …. I think the deck was reaching temps in the 90’s with the humidity . As my son got ready for work I busied myself with things around the house . Not much needed to be done the house was pretty kept up .I settled and watched my soaps and then made supper for my hubby and I . What do you do when the evenings unbearable outside. You read and drink water of course chat with the hubby’s🙂my daughter is out from work but with her boyfriend and my son is still at work. So it’s Just hubby and I and Miss Abigail. Miss antsy girl tonight. Happy to say I’m about two maybe three small chapters away to finishing my book . Loved this book Fly Away by Kristin Hannah . It’s just really sad but isn’t all her books sad … but always have such a beautiful meaning and great story to keep you eagerly turning the pages.Love the first book in the series. Fire Fly lane . Defiantly worth the read. Well that said I am going to try finishing it and then I can start on my next read. I’ll post it when I start it. Have a great night. …oh Thunderstorm warning going across the bottom of our TV screen! I hope we get a thunderstorm ! love them at night . I do love them better when both kids are home ,my daughter should be fine she is at her boyfriends house . I hope my son gets home before they come our way. He’s delivering food until 9 and storms are predicted for 10. He can always stay out at work if he needs to . Yes I’m a mother …. constantly thinking ..worrying of my kids, even as adults🙄 I should just calm my hubby down who is pacing around the house and outdoors like a dog ( hahaha) he always does this when they are being predicted. He doesn’t like them one bit. Ok have a good night everyone….
Just before dusk started to settle in my hubby and I decided to settle in the bedroom where it was a bit cooler. I with my book and him with the TV . We were closing things up and out our kitchen slider leading to the back woods there strolled a beautiful animal. So graceful as she walked . Sleek posture she held as she took in her surroundings. Making sure she was safe. As she looked for food. We just watched her keeping silent so she knew nothing was going to harm her . In time she walked deeper into our woods to settle in for the night.
This is our summer evenings . The sun setting in front of us into the mountain but its rays of light peaking through the tree that gives us some shade and is home to the chickadee’s and robins. Tonight we shared the beautiful evening with our turkeys and fox eating and frolicking in the grass just a bit away from us. They new we were there sitting on our deck . I believe they find this as their home as well. As we talked they just did their thing then as the night slowly rolled in and the light turning into darkness they disappeared into the edge of our woods to settle for the night as we headed into the house to settle in as well , now the house is as quiet as our woods. Everyone tucked in for the night in there place in the house , I will do the same ..enjoy my book for a bit until my eyes get heavy with sleep.
Couldn’t resist ! Love the evening skies❤️
