Rainy day . ..a calm quiet day , temps are cool, things are done around the house just supper has to be made but that’s in a bit . Enjoying some hot chocolate while talking with my daughter. My son left at 6 this morning and arrived home around 2 he has showered and is laying down now . He took a hike up on Mt Greylock an elevation of 3,491 I dislike when he does this hiking alone but he prefers it then he can go at his own pace . The day before I started on another adult coloring page. It’s coming along pretty good. After supper is made and cleaned up and the evening turns into night I think I will work on some more of the page . I guess it’s time to get supper going
Today was a beautiful Sunny Friday, my hubby said let’s take a ride just a little one … I said okay and knew in the back of my mind it would not be short, Let’s see after 6hrs later we were pulling into our driveway . Let’s see with in the ride there was a nice lunch at a beautiful restaurant by the water The Marina. Yes where boats are docked the scenery was beautiful looking out over the water while we enjoyed a light lunch. Then it was off to New Hampshire and Then Manchester Vermont which was so serene , such simple living. The mountains were absolutely breathtaking the way they surrounded us off in the distance. All I could think of was how much my hubby and son would love to be hiking them… as my daughter and I walked endlessly around to the clothing and book stores and then enjoying a nice chat about the books we purchased at one of the many outdoor cafes on every corner enjoying a coffee or a drink . Yes simple living it is people sitting outside in the fresh air enjoying their drinks and or food and happily chatting away the day.. In the fall when the leaves change actually in some spots they were already but when they really change we want to go back with our kids even if it’s a bit cooler we can still enjoy the coffee shops a nice hot cup of tea or coffee would be perfect. Will see ..it would have to be sometime in September because my son leaves the 2nd week of October so maybe September will still be warm .I know the leaves will be turning more by then. Well we are now home and settled watching pre season football well for the most part my hubby is .I am going to read . Enjoying my reading time more and more everyday. Enjoy my photos!
Good morning enjoying my coffee while catching up on the morning news. It’s Friday with a not so busy weekend ahead ,the last two weekends have been busy but enjoyable .Birthday celebrations but you know all that goes into it … when I woke it was sunny now it’s cloudy , rain coming in this afternoon again with the humidity … I’m so hoping by tonight it clears for awhile to be able to sit out on the deck with our tiki lights and relax with my other half , haven’t been able to do this for awhile. Saturday will be a whatever kind of day .. and then Sunday if my sons ankle feels better …two days ago while running he landed wrong on it and strained it he took some days to relax it and knowing my son he will push to do the triathlon … will see . He needs to take it easy but that is not in his vocabulary 🙄 time will tell, well my visitors were back early this morning (turkeys) I believe their living in our woods. You would think we were raising them (hahaha) Miss Abigail use to love sitting in the window watching them and and making noises at them like she is talking to them but I think it’s become old being here everyday she doesn’t bother with them. Coffee is finished so time to get on with this day before I decide to just let it go around here and read (hahaha) need to finish my book I really want to know how it ends . I posted that I was reading it. On Facebook and this friend of mine said it looked good and didn’t know Stephen King had a new one out. He thanked me and said it was going to be his next read. He will probably have it and finish it before I’m done . Okay time to get off here for now 🙂
Ahh woke to a cool actually cold morning. Thankfully the temps have stayed cool. Friday night was spent with family watching the Town fireworks . Where we sit you have to get there at least two hours before and just get comfortable and enjoy good conversations and laughs …or you will not find a place to park. For several years now my kids have not gone with us they do their own things with their friends sitting down where they have a festival as well .. no rides just food and shop venues , music, which mind my language but hell to get out of after it’s over . You could be sitting there for hours or praying your vehicle didn’t get scratched by someone who is squeezing in to make room for their vehicle ..
The dark slowly approached while waiting for the fireworks and the colder and windy it became my hubby and his brother had shorts on and well they were freezing, after 6 days of temps in the 100 the 60″s with wind is an adjustment. The fireworks were amazing and once they started they last longer then other Towns I had heard that had them on the 4th , well worth the chill and the wait. Today will be spent with my sister celebrating her daughters birthday sitting around her pool which I believe is too cold for me today.. yes I’m am wimpy (haha) and enjoying some drinks well my hubby will be ..I think I’ll be the designated driver he’s had a long rough week at work in the heat paving highways so he could use some drinks ( hahaha) give me coffee or ice tea and good conversation and I will be good. I hoping tonight we can come home sit out on the deck for a bit . Suppose to be a cool night again so tiki lights a blanket and the stars sound like a perfect night. Okay time to finish my coffee and do some things before we go . Have a great day everyone 🙂
Friday night started with sitting outside relaxing with the hubby’s the peepers where out and vocal the stars and bats above , yes two bats getting their nightly meal flying above us . They can get pretty close it makes you flinch . Well I do hahaha as we where sitting outside I thought I saw lightening off in the distance. So we kept an eye out and we notice the skies began to get darker by the minute and the stars disappeared and the bats must have sensed a storm they where no longer in sight ,we went inside and soon enough the wind picked up the rain came pouring down and Miss Abigail ran under our bed. We went from humid temps to cooler air and it feels so good. Now we are settled in bed both kids out with friends and hubby and I are ready for some sleep. So time to say goodnight and say my prayers . And let the sound of the rain relax.
Off and on I woke during the night … I know I had some dreams but really do not remember them. Restless nights are no fun makes for a hard morning …especially when it’s a rainy one . So I dragged myself out of bed to the shower and then to the kitchen for some coffee. My son rubbing his eyes has he made it to the kitchen to make his breakfast silence is the word ( hahaha) he is not a talkative person in the morning . Sadly I’m a talkative person anytime of the day (hahaha) believe me . I believe I’ve have mentioned in my other posts he isn’t. So I grabbed my coffee and headed into the living room to check up on the news. as he banged around in the kitchen . Soon after I could hear the laughing of girls ..my daughter and her friend with Miss Abigail following them up from her place. Getting some coffee and sit around my kitchen table for a bit with their phones in hand. so no quiet house this morning thats okay with me 🙂
Happy it’s Friday it’s a whatever night for supper which actually means simple cooking … chicken stir fry or whatever .. it will be a quiet night tonight my son has a early meet in the morning about an hr away . My hubby will go and watch too much of a day on my feet for myself but my heart will be there with him . I get the task the next part of the weekend going with my son to find a tux for his Senior Prom … a bittersweet thing because my son and his girlfriend broke up so he is going with his guy friends that do not have dates as well . I say good for them go have fun dance there will be girls that are single as well who will want to dance ,their all friends. At first he wasn’t going to go because he always went to dances with his gf but being his senior prom he has decided not to miss out . That is our weekend. It’s amazing that it’s Friday already the week seem to fly by. As I write this the rain is still coming down and Miss Abigail is sleeping away on the couch she looks so cozy. My daughter and her friend are off and doing things and my son is at his track practice and hubby’s working . So I’m just finishing things up around the house , my day shows are all done so news is on for some noise on this dark dreary day. I should play some music that may be more uplifting. 🙂
Beautiful ending to an exciting Friday Track Meet . Brutally cold but with a blanket wrapped around me worked well🙂 our boys Track and Field team won their 2nd meet of the season again . My son broke his record . Came in faster so his hard work is paying off. My hubby niece , Mother in/law and my daughter cheered him on. Happily he is out with his friends now and my daughter as well so hubby and I are home and warming up and watching a movie Suicide Squad …hmm a bit strange and interesting at the same time ..but hubby likes Will Smith and it was on tv’s movie channel tonight so where watching it. I guess I will finish watching it with him . Goodnight everyone🙂
