Happy ,Simple , Things, …

It’s a late Friday morning enjoying my coffee with strawberry cheesecake flavor creme.. after laying in bed a bit longer enjoying the warmth of the covers after checking my phone and seeing it showed freezing rain this morning . I didn’t feel the need to rush to get up.

Grabbing a hot shower finally I came out and enjoyed my coffee and the news .. a busy Friday morning in the news. Valentines Day has come and gone … laying in bed last night after my hubby and I and my daughter all settled in early her and I still recovering and my hubby starting to feel ill. I was going through my blog when around 10:00 my cell rang and appearing on my screen was my son on a mountain after hiking up it ..staring back at me. I couldn’t answer fast enough lol! I said hi and and a man replied back to me (no matter how many times I hear his voice it still amazes me how he has grownup so fast where did this time go so quickly.. ) hi did I wake you or dad ? Of course not even if he did I’d never tell him πŸ™‚ he asked if his dad was sleeping and I told him to listen facing the phone in the direction of my snoring hubby (hahaha) he did his snicker and said yep. My poor hubby the things I do to him … we talked for 40mins it was nice ..he doesn’t call much because he feels no privacy ..but being that they had changed rooms once again last night he got his original roommates back that are older mature and understand about family and yes talking to your mom hahaha . He wished me a happy Valentine’s Day and asked what or if we did anything . He knew I’ve been sick and knows how simple I am anyway ..that any moment spent with just family is enough. He told me how he was getting a cold and I heard coughing from his buddies in the back ground .. it’s everywhere…. he said he would push through has a four day weekend being it’s Presidents Day holiday here in the States. So he welcomes some down time. Along with all of them on the base. It was really nice to talk with him hear his voice . It will be strange when he comes home. Has a lot on his mind .. oh he is my child hahaha, after getting off the phone with him I settled into some sleep.

Today I will putter around was going to try to get to the Post Office but not going to play with the ice that has coated my steps and driveway . Hopefully tomorrow. My daughter is still sleeping doesn’t have to work until late afternoon so happy she is resting she needs it. I guess it’s time to do a few things my coffee cup is now empty that being said have a good day everyone .πŸ™‚

A quiet Valentines Day…

My hubby had work and my daughter as well especially with her working in the floral department and it being Valentines Day she had to be in at 8:00 so at 7:30 I heard the front door shut . I laid there in bed taking in the quietness of the house after a actual restful night sleep after going to bed with a tickle making me cough and dreading how the night would be .. but thankfully it lessened but an hour after getting up and grabbing a shower it started up again …πŸ™„

I grabbed some coffee oh my what a treat it was ..my daughter had bought strawberry cheesecake flavor coffee creme .. I know probably sounds a bit gross but it’s so delicious . So I enjoyed my coffee while catching up on my morning show. And reading the lovely card my hubby left me on the table to be found when I woke. The rest of my day was spent with some light laundry tasks and kitchen cleanup . Then knowing we would treat ourselves with takeout for dinner there was no worries there. I settled in with my shows relaxing while the washing machine carried on. And chatting with my daughter who said they were having lulls in being busy and was not feeling well couldn’t wait to come home and just relax . Her boyfriend working tonight she was okay with so she could rest.. they had spent the last two days together and their not big into the whole Valentines Day thing they believe we should love like this every day. Hmm I guess my hubby and I did something right and his parents as well (hahaha) so she got out of work for 5 and I ordered her food as well and the three of us enjoyed and spent time together chatting and her and I eating some chocolates after our meal because she bought a box of candy that was half priced now. I picked out the orange cream filled and the coconut filled candies my favorite ones.

We chatted with my son off and on while he was on I sent him a photo of the sunset tonight and told him it was for him he said that was nice. He never brought up Valentines Day and so I let it be .. he’s on a Army Base and I’m sure the least of his thoughts at the moment. It was nice to actually say we were all together tonight yes my son away but a text away ,my daughter enjoying food and conversation with my hubby was nice a nice quiet Valentines Day . Simple and most important with my family.

Now it’s 9:30 and my daughter and Miss Abigail are settled down in her place she was tired and ready to settle in bed as well as my hubby and I who is not feeling a 100 percent. My son off for the moment but said he would say goodnight when he shuts his phone off for the night. Hopefully I can keep my eyes open .. it’s 9.30 here ..Missouri 8:30 and phones go off at 9 ,formation I’m sure is right now .. then sleep at 9 . All and all a simple day it was and I couldn’t ask or want for anything more. πŸ™‚

Sunday night already…

It’s Sunday night already .. even though it’s been a long week I can’t believe it’s Sunday and I still feel down.. doesn’t help that not being active and feeling uncomfortable I’m not sleeping well . I think I may have kicked this faster if I had some decent sleep . Laying in bed at midnight night wide awake and not feeling bad at all then finally falling asleep after 1 or more waking up the next morning exhausted . And then a long day down again .. vicious cycle. I’ve watched so much tv but the best was today . I cozied up with a blanket and a cup of tea in my chair and enjoyed an oldie but goodie the movie An Officer and a gentleman. Oh the tears I cried at the end I’m such sappy thing πŸ˜‚ I love a good romantic movie as much as a romance book. My daughter actually enjoyed it as well hubby watched off and on but took moments of laying in bed, fearing that he is coming down with our sickness ..feeling feverish so that’s not good. I texted with my son off and on more today . He is ready to be done with the Ait part of Basic Training about 3 weeks left aand he will be flying home. So we chatted about jobs when he gets home along with his National Guard Reserves job . And anxiously waiting to hear back from the colleges he as applied too , will see. Now watching the Red Carpet for The Grammys. See how long I last . I like some of the music. And performers but after awhile it gets a bit much. It’s getting started so I guess I will chat a little with my son before he has to be off his phone for the night and enjoy the Grammys with my daughter.and maybe the hubby’s unless he goes to bed early so he can work tomorrow . He is the lucky one he can sleep anytime and anywhere . Wish I had that problemπŸ™‚

COLD! ❄️❄️

I know …. I’ve posted already today but I’m awake still. I’m laying in bed though so that’s a good thing. It’s so cold and I wanted my bed. As I’m laying here and was trying to organize my Facebook wall and messaging my daughter off and on because she is awake as well. I keep hearing over my hubby’s snoring hahaha … okay to get serious the popping and cracking noise of our house proving all to well how cold it is. My daughter has a friend sleeping over who has to do a night shift so has to go for 1in the morning and oh is it going to be nasty going out to her car in -1 temps , I feel so bad for her. My son texted me tonight he said it was only 1 in Missouri all day and he had to be out in it. I think the cold got to him even though he should be more use to it then his army buddies that are from the south . Being he was brought up in New England. He was grumpy and yes I could tell even over text that he wrote he didn’t actually come out with it that he was grumpy I could just feel it when I read his messages . I said are you feeling cooped up ? He wrote ” oh my god yes! ” ” you can tell ?” I said oh yes I can . He is such a free spirit … even though he loves what he’s doing . Just always been that way. Love and hate that about him it’s like trying to tame a wild animal at times hahaha didn’t know how else to put it. But then on the other hand his heart and humbleness is huge. My daughter is that way too but I don’t feel I have to tame a wild animal with her πŸ™‚ So I was making an album of his army photos on Fb and now their all on my feed and people are liking them and I’m thinking he will not be impressed πŸ™„ I didn’t realize if I made an album in photos so there all together it comes up in the news feed… 😩 yeah that will really impress him… not! I told my daughter and she laughed and said yeah they kept coming up as notifications on my phone that you posted. Oh well not much I can do about it now. Earlier I was watching videos and reading about Hygge I know so random but I just heard another loud pop and it reminded me of this .. a few of my friends on here and my hubby were talking about it . It’s so interesting . I love to talk more about it but my eyes are not wanting to stay open and it is late so I guess I will get under the covers a bit more and get some sleep. Goodnight everyone.

Friday!

Friday is here.. woke to my phone going off twice one my Son messaging me Have a good day! And then the second one from his long time ..5 yrs ..on and off maybe on again girlfriend , yes a long time of this but that’s for another day . Let’s just say she has grownup a lot graduating from High School .so it was her messaging me have a fabulous day Kim ! From Ireland . She attends College there. I am totally in awe ( hahaha) such a beautiful start to my day. My son must be missing me . And his girlfriend too? After that I dragged myself into the shower and enjoyed the steamy warmth of the hot water waking me and getting me to the kitchen for my coffee. Soon after my daughter came up and enjoyed a cup with me. ..Until it was time for her to get ready for work and for myself to get some bills paid and yes do some laundry . After I put a roast in to bake for supper and surprisingly the day flew by . Now just finishing a hot cup of tea and soon I ll eat my dinner. Such sad news… the candy company that made the box of candy that was shaped as hearts and different coolers and had different sayings or a simple word this candy for Valentine’s Day is no longer … 😩 I loved those little candy’s giving those little boxes out…I know and you thought it was something really sad ( hahaha) well it is for me πŸ™‚these little guys such a fun candy. I’m thinking I’ll have my book finished tonight read longer then I wanted to. After my son had texted saying how they were moved to different dorms and new roommates he said goodnight I had been reading off and on before that I went back to it to finish the chapter I was reading and telling myself I would go to bed a bit earlier …. well looking up from my book the clock read 11 .I guess I finished more chapters .. so I called it a night. I really want see how this book ends so I’ll am going to finish it tonight. I guess I will eat some supper and clean the kitchen up with a plate waiting for my daughter as well . Have a good evening.

Adult Coloring night!

Last night after supper was done and cleaned up, I decided to take out my adult coloring book and coloring pencils. It was relaxing . I haven’t colored since the week my son flew back to his base that was about 3weeks ago .. the strange thing is it feels so much longer then 3 weeks …. I know it feels very short for him.. that time is standing still for him. I guess feeling the way I feel is harder because I think oh soon and he will be home…. but no I think it means how much I miss him.. so picking up my coloring was refreshing and it stopped my wandering thoughts as I focused on the pattern I was coloring. I finished what I had started those 3 weeks ago, I like it it was a fitting pattern (hahaha) yes a heart πŸ™‚Now to find another pattern. Feeling like coloring a bit more tonight. It’s now a rainy night . Nothing like rain in January ..NO!(hahaha) can’t win, no snow , brutally cold to a foot of snow, to now rain …. we have had it all. Thankfully before the rain started and the ice looked a bit easier to navigate so I wouldn’t slip I was able to get to the post office and send my sons book he had asked if I could send him..I guess it was a smart choice I got out ,a friend of my daughters said she just found out her siblings do not have school tomorrow because of the higher elevation and dirt roads in most part of the towns here will be covered In ice . Good call I must agree.I guess its time to settle In and color and enjoy my husband and I’s favorite show .. well one of them We have many of them. Have a good night everyone!

Monday …

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 timeπŸ™„ 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 πŸ™‚ 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.
