As a child we moved around a bit . My father never settled long with jobs always looking for something better. I believe he just love to travel. Then we ended back to my childhood home where I finished Elementary and and my teenage yrs in . Many night of sneaking out of my bedroom window well falling out of the window and falling back into it to meet up with friends and old crushes .. being 4″11 is a bit hard jumping up from the bulk head into the window. Oh the fun times that was. And many long nights of talking on the phone with teenage crushes and friends. the memories . Are so wonderful to have . My parents have been gone for 23 and 24 yrs now yes they passed within a yr from one another . My dad first and then my mom followed . Yes she had health issues but I so believe a broken heart as well. My older sister owns the house now and lives there with her teenage daughter recently separated from her husband. I stayed over last night (Friday night) and then spent the today as well there it was so relaxing we sat and drank many cups of coffee and tea and chatted and laughed through out the night . It was strange waking this morning in my old bedroom now that my niece occupies. A surreal feeling of sorts. Then it was more coffee , tea and great conversations and laughter. It was so relaxing and nice to catchup with her. Even though I only live 15 mins away we live different busy life’s so finding time to chat is sparse. So this was such a blessings. We are hoping to do this again . But I believe I need to let the coffee and tea wear off first before that happens again (hahaha)
ahh I Slept 8 hrs last night that’s actually a record for me , if you read my last post you will see why I say this . I’m shocked it made sense ( haha) I was exhausted . I think tonight will not be an early night now that I feel refreshed .. oh this vicious cycle of an insomniac 🙄 It’s A Thursday night the sun has been down for a bit now . 8:00 and it’s slowly getting dark. Sadly I’m not crushed I’m looking forward to Fall . So I can go back to wearing boots legging and comfy sweaters. And yes all the Fall flavored coffees will come out . My daughter and I alway go to Starbucks when September arrives for our pumpkin spice flavor coffee. Coffee always Taste good but in the Fall it’s the best . Okay my post was not going to be all about coffee (haha) I could go on though for a while writing about it. It just taste so good. 🙂
Thursday already why… usually the week goes by slow. Next week it will after this weekend when I turn the big 50 ughh… it’s unbelievable even to myself how much I’m dreading this. Life really does fly by . Crazy how that happens. Trying not to think about it . Going to just celebrate it with my family at my favorite pub a nice simple dinner , maybe a drink , but then they have this really tasty expresso and seeing that I’m not much for alcohol I may just go for the expresso , I know a lot of people have big parties but I’m not really into that and it’s too . late to change now. I like the more intimate simple kind of night out. I stated before it doesn’t take much to make me happy . Simple that is what
It’s only Tuesday but feels like Friday .. this week is moving so slow. The next two days is dealing with vehicles going into the garage I am not looking forward to. My daughter wants me to go with her to our local garage for her car … I told her it’s easy enough she replies your so social they love you there you talk away with them . So I will be basically going to remind them what they need to check meanwhile will sit at the convenient store next to it and enjoy a coffee. Then Thurs other half’s truck that goes in ,that’s a drop off but then need to go back to get it. The errand I do not like to do. Well enough of that … anyways it’s been pretty quiet around here nature wise. I think the wildlife is hiding in the shade to stay cool. Over the weekend we did have a coyote in the yard . At first when we looked out we thought it was a dog. Okay I thought it was . My daughter looks at me and said that is no dog . Credits to her for trying to get a picture of him. Any move we made he looked towards us. So she just kept snapping pictures . The pics will give you an idea of this guy . Defiantly pretty and the biggest one we have seen in awhile . Im wondering if this is why we are not seeing our fox that comes around every evening. I hope that is the only reason.
Rain coming in Wed and Thurs cannot wait we really need it. The grass is burning and the rivers are looking a bit to low. The rain will be welcoming. Along with it warmer temps looking like the weekend will be over a 100 and humid. The Weathermen are warning the dew point will be at dangerous levels… a good time to read my book. Every-time I pick up my book I’m interrupted by my other half turning on a movie and asking me to watch with him or it’s look ..oh did you see that . Or my daughter wanting to talk and once we get talking we could talk all night . My son is fine he just sits quietly as he goes through his phone . Sometimes quiet . I can see him out of the corner of my eye making funny faces and laughing… the world of Snapchat. For the life of me I can not figure that out and I guess I really do not need to. Well it’s 8:00 at night and I’m noticing it’s getting a bit darker out earlier each night. Where did this summer go? I quess its time to read some blogs and then get some sleep. Night everyone.
This week of endless humidity has finally came to an end for now at least , until Wed when their forecasting an even warmer and humid rest of next week. Happy as well to see last week end … was in a bit of a funk… it is time to face the new paths that life is throwing at me from every direction. Time to do what is right for me . I quote a few special friends on here that have told me this. It’s heard but time. Need to be happy finding my way in this next chapter of life. I guess it’s not so bad to just be…. have I excepted the age I’m turning…. hmm NO! (Hahaha) for now I’ll work on those new paths .With that said and done . I’ve had a quiet nice start of a weekend. Let’s see On Friday night hubby and I enjoyed watching the movie Bohemian Rhapsody . I was hesitant but watched it because my hubby loves the band and I remember when we first started dating he had a phase where he played their cassettes , yes I said cassettes , 🙂constantly.. I do like some of their songs . It was interesting I must say … a good interesting. That filled our night. Once settling I received a text that my son would be out with friends after his late shift at work , my daughter out as well. So we decided to get some sleep . A light sleep at that … our front door swung open and shut several times as each came home and I heard them , then my daughter texting me from her place are you awake hmm ..!of course I was this was about 1 in the morning she loves night time chats as I do . They are the best. We talked for a bit then we decided to get some sleep.
I woke to the sound of my hubby and son banging around in the kitchen figuring it was time to get up myself grab a quick shower and coffee. My hubby and son where heading out the door to drop off my sons motorcycle for some work on it. Yes he has a motorcycle . Had me a bit frazzled for a couple of weeks I’m not frazzled now but it still makes me say a little prayer when he drives out of the driveway and second one at that within two months first one he decided wasn’t big enough🙄 Ive come to except this one as well . I really have no choice not to ..he is an adult.
Enjoying this mornings coffee with my daughter and a good conversation was a nice start to this day. She laughed as she saw me and hearing me sing as I added some songs from Queen in my playlist on my Chromebook that had stuck in my head after the movie. She made me laugh when she said I looked so happy as I was singing when she came up from her place. 🤷🏻♀️ after that the guys arrived home and I left with my hubby to do some Saturday errands and of course a coffee …. love my coffee. No errands or ride is complete with out a coffee stop . Once home hubby went for a run and I caught up with a friend Ive known since Elementary School. She is a nurse and works at night so we try to catchup as often as we can . Even though she’s busy she makes a point to always check in and see how things are going as I do with her. That pretty much filled the rest of my afternoon so now supper is done and cleaned up. Both kids out son working daughter with a friend. I’m going to start a new book . I had posted one recently but just could not get into it. My sister is a huge Stephen King fan and has all of them plus waiting for his newest one she preordered . I have read several and enjoyed them . They have spooked me at times but a good spook this one is called Lisey’s Story 509 pages ..this may take me till Fall to finish. I can’t remember if I posted this but here it is anyways…. so far it’s really good . I’ll keep you posted how it is . It’s 8:30 hubby is watching the Baseball game and I think I will get some reading done. Have a great night everyone.
Hi everyone! I’m finally posting after about a week .. Im learning to let go and yes realize I am not in control of anything .. who is right? But we try …. so I needed a break or should say really should say I just couldn’t write. Anyway this Fourth of July went along with exactly how I have been feeling, go figure… it was not a disappointment but a learning one. My daughter had to work but I was able to spend the day before out and about with her. My son had off and he thought we would be going to my hubby’s brother for a day in their pool and family ….. nothing , no phone call no reaching out with an invite so nothing on my hubby side ..and so my hubby and I and son made the best of it . We went for dinner at Chili’s I had never been . The food was delicious my hubby and I both had the chicken enchiladas while my son had one of their big burgers and fries after eating an appetizer of two Hamburg sliders wings and These nachos that I didn’t get a picture of. After the meal we left and went to see the fireworks for a small town they were pretty good . A lot of people and little ones running around with their glow bracelets and necklaces, so cute . My son said he remember those days like they were just yesterday. We laughed when I took a pic of him sitting with us to send to my daughter after telling her it wasn’t the same as when they were little , and wrote under pic this is my baby .. she did the laughing crying face and said it was hysterical … my son did not find it amusing (hahaha) but all in all it was nice . Came home after and chatted with my daughter and then as it became later we all settled in for the night.. Any phone calls from my hubby’s fam ? Nothing …. got to love family. Tonight there will be fireworks in our next town that they all go to we do too ..this year we will not unless my daughter makes it after work in time with here boyfriend . My son works and my hubby and I will be at my sisters for a birthday party for my niece. Today is just a typicalFriday but with my hubby off . Funny how you learn and wonder tho why do things have to be this way. But it all turned out my hubby and I made the best of this holiday and came out of it with a new perspective. ..
Outside my door the winds have calmed the storms have passed ..for now. Settled in last night with my new book . After about 45 mins later I put my book down and shut the light off. It wasn’t that the book wasn’t good it was . I just wanted to lay there in the darkness and watch the flash of the lighting and hear the roll of the thunder . Love nighttime storms. As the storm came through flashing shadows on my wall I laid there taking it in thinking about the Memorial Day weekend approaching .. like everything things change. I know a part of life. Even if I wanted time to to stop it would not ..even for a moment . Even laying there watching the storm was different… my daughter at some friends house . My son tired from work in bed as well as my hubby just I watching it .No kids running into the bedroom or sitting in our living room watching counting between the lightening flashes. Just I … As this Memorial Day approaches this will not be the same as well. Yes they’ll be a cookout ,bonfire on one of the days but less around the fire. but our hearts with them . No friends sleeping over , no sleeping out in a tent and being waken by kids running in as fast as they can to sleep on the living room floor because they heard something in the woods. No movie nights with buckets of popcorn and wide eyed kids as they watched .No just my hubby and I watching a movie , or sitting and watching the stars , taking a ride . As our door swings open and close as my kids come and go from work. I will embrace this change and then the next one and the next one. But for now I will embrace this moment . with a smile on my face and also a tear in my eye.
