Lovely Night!

My daughters friend came over to hang around the house with her as they put it. So my daughter caught up on her laundry and cleaned up her downstairs. As I was making supper their laughter and bings of their phones was a nice change of pace from a quiet house these days. After my hubby came home from work and did some raking in the yard the girls left to get some hot chocolate. Soon they were back with one for me ,my hubby had his coffee so he was all set 🙂and they enjoyed my Shepard’s pie I had made for supper. It was nice feeding others then just my hubby and I . After my hubby caught some of the Red Sox game we turned to one of our many favorite shows ..Seal Team . My hubby is amazed how hooked I am with it. I do love it , it’s real … intense, emotional , but yes most of all real. I like that in a show . Now it’s going on midnight and I should get some sleep after I say my nightly prayers especially one for my son while he’s away. But the moon is so Full and bright it’s going to make for a rough night of falling to sleep. The house is so quiet except for the fan my husband loves to hear at night..anyone else’s sleep with a sound of a fan all yr around? Even Miss Abigail has decided to go down and sleep with her mama (my daughter) so no paw sounds walking around tonight. It was a lovely night. Even if it was only having my daughters friend here she filled the house with one more person . It’s about the simple things that mean the most or should. Just as my son wrote in his letters while missing us stating it is really about the simple things…. hmm it’s something when you realize it when you leave home for the first time and are miles and miles across the States and you learn that fact. ❤️ time for some prayers and sleep.

Stopping a wandering mind…

It’s A cold ..Full moon Monday night. Thankfully my daughter is home and took Miss Abigail with her down to their place. It’s bad enough the full moon is intensifying my anxiousness . It was causing mischief for her . My husband stayed home from work after waking up and still not feeling well still .. plus had a checkup he was going to take a half a day for to come home and change before it. . I’m still feeling a bit under the weather so took my time with doing things . Prep supper … yes in my crockpot (hahaha) love that thing which I believe a lot of my readers have noticed. Then I ran to the Post Office to mail our letters and extra envelopes and stamps to my Son. Grabbed a few things at the market then headed home to fold a bit of laundry . Now been settled in reading my book . It helps at night when my mind has been now switching gears to missing my son at night .. before it was around supper time now it’s at night when I’m either sitting in the living room or laying , settling in bed I think I hear the back door click open and I think oh he’s home from working out or being with friends . but then I know it’s only my mind playing tricks on me. It’s only been 12 days since he left …. but it seems so much longer. That’s why reading helps but tonight with this full moon I’m having a hard time concentrating and twice I think Ive heard the door. and my husband keeps asking me what I’m looking down the hall at ..🙄So happy he’s coming home for Christmas for a bit. I’m happy I can write him letters but I never realized how long it takes for him to get them … unless it’s always taken a long time and we have adapted to texting and pushing the send button and bing .. they get it. I hope he realizes how long and doesn’t wonder why or think why is no one writing ? See this is my wandering mind . Okay time to read and then get some sleep . Good night everyone.

Warm night🙂

Saturday came as fast as it went . My son won two medals with his track team and then decided after to get together with a couple of his buddies so my hubby dropped him off at his car and hubby came home, as soon as he walked in the door I noticed right off he looked like a lobster , he was so sun burned on his face and arms . He said he would go good shopping with me so we left so he could come home and relax . Thankfully it didn’t take long. Hours later my son arrived just as sunburned but wet… him and his buddies decided it would be a good idea to jump in the river . He said it was shockingly cold . Oh I believe it the ice on the rivers just finally melted about a week ago so yes it may have been warm out but the rivers are not ready for visitors. Boys! 🙄

It’s night now the peepers are out and are making the noises they do best . Air is warm but with a slight cool breeze blowing in so lightly the fresh air through our open windows.The moon is full so the woods are lit up . The turkeys that was in the yard earlier as moved on until tomorrow hey come back everyday till Fall is here.we are settled in bed watching a movie lone Survivor ,hmm ..yeah just what a mom wants to see who’s son wants to do this… speaking of my son he is fast asleep after getting up at 6 this morning to get ready for his race and after a swim and the sunburn . He looked exhausted and in know mood for small talk just made his food showered and said a goodnight. Miss Abigail is doing laps up and down the hallway I wonder if my son can hear the thumping of her paws against the wood floor. . The full moon is helping her with this 🙂. Love the sound of the peepers at night . To settle your mind and let you drift off to sleep. Well it will be nice to hear Better after the movies over.. I guess I will finish watching then get some sleep . Good night everyone.

Calm before the storm…

it’s 10 at night just finished catching up on my daytime soap I missed today while out running errands with my daughter . Love on demand the best.. you never have to miss your favorite show. So the full moon is out nice and bright shining through our bedroom window it’s not phasing my snoring hubby🙂 he likes it when it’s bright to sleep I like it a bit darker… calm before the storm forecasters are saying that we could get a Nor’Eastern a monstrous one well on the coast of us but we will see some of the effects but their not sure how much by Friday their saying the full moon is not going to help because it brings in the high wave surge which could be historic. I guess I can blame the full moon on the noises I heard last night down in my daughters place you will understand if you read my last post hahah I thought she was home I heard banging around and she wasn’t well she is not home to night as well and I hear nothing downstairs .Miss Abigail who was down there last night is up here with us on our couch sleeping so I think Miss Abigail was banging around down there restless from the moon . Plus the fact I’m learning she probably doesn’t like to be alone . So Im going to go with that for the reason of the noises downstairs . I told my hubby and he said at 2 he was awaken by a weird noise outside he said had to been an animal but couldn’t place what kind not the boys ( coyotes) so he said I didn’t want to wake you too because you where sleeping really good . So I guess we both heard strange noises last night …. all is quiet tonight. ..so much for my daughter being home early like she said … well she is the one who has to get up early tomorrow and I guess I’m going to try to get some sleep . Goodnight everyone 🙂

Sleepless nights..

Crazy past weekend lets see this beautiful full moon has ket me up as had me in reved motion along with my teenage son … this photo was taken at 1in the morning on Saturday has my husband and I were driving to pick our son up after a ..umm …. party he went to with his friend got busted …just to note we did not allow him to go because we did not know .he did you the trick you and your friend say your each going to sleep at each others house but they really are out doing this , Thankfully the police who busted it where very nice because the kids where under age and past curfew of driving they had to get a ride home by thier parents and leave the car or one of us drove it . So we walked up as they where escorted to us by the cop and she asked if we where my sons parents and said if we where taking his friend home too we said yes and she said okay they’re not in trouble we just want them all to get home safe and I do not know if they had a drink they wouldn’t say so we said thank you and my husband drove my sons car home and I drove the boys thankfully they hadn’t drank but still got a lecture from me ,they told me they just wanted to go to be with this girl who invited them and they new they shouldn’t have hmmm a bit to late oh , I will be so happy when school starts in less then 3 weeks, he will and I mean WILL be home and he has been on a strict watch sadly but it’s just not safe to do . Yes we have done this but when it’s your child it’s like a slap in the face of reality your mother saying see how it feels  .. yes karma  funny thing is I had a feeling and I was wide  awake so yes it was a crazy past weekend and a week of trying to get into a normal routine and a little more rules . Let’s say a challenging summer this has been and such learning experience for all of us .
