This morning my son did the biking stage of the 2018 Pentathlon in our Community . Happy it was sunny but it was cold and the wind did not help . My hubby and I watched in ahh as we watched the participants amazing… all so good and I have to hand it to them a lot of energy was used up from them. We are so proud of our son he did so well his team came in 4th over all but 1st place in their age group. He’s sore but still on the go . The pics where taking after he finished tired and sore… it will be a calm night, he went to a friends to hang at there house his friend had an ACll put in on Tuesday and shockingly was at the race on crutches and a full leg brace to sit and direct runners which way to go but that was enough to tire him out and his leg was hurting and needed to be up , he was a good support team along with another friend for my son, so my son felt he owed him to go sit with him at his house this evening. They’ll go over the day in full detail I’m sure 🙂 after my hubby and I grabbed a late lunch out and now Where home getting warm. . It’s been such a great day .
So this has been my stress /relax thing to do the last couple of days .. especially today on this rainy cold July day… I tried reading but couldn’t focus on it so I’ve been watching this oldie but good tv show yes MASH love it my hubby as well and during the commercials. playing this game bubble pop so addicting just as bad as bejeweled I use to play. But if it gives me a break from worrying about things I can’t do anything about then why not . There are worse things to do so I guess this is a good thing . It’s 10 at night and everyone’s settled in and so I guess I will too so time to shut the game off for now and let the sound of the rain drft me of to sleep. Goodnight everyone.
Good Morning ! so this is a different photo I would usually put up:) but for some reason I thought this was kind of neat ….yes its a wine cork but I just love the detail of the foot on it . I’ve never saw such a cool design on a wine cork hahaha so I thought this deserved a photo . I think the wine brand is Bare foot or the name of it …my daughter had it she heard it was good .She loves trying certain wines I liked the cork hahahah I know silly but like I said it does not take much to make me laugh or find interesting.. so this my photo for photo Monday.
I was reminded this afternoon with my daughter that it was May Day when we took a ride into town this morning and saw the local Elementary kids with their teachers pushing a wagon filled with May Day baskets. May Day basket you ask well that was a basket or a cup designed with fresh beautiful spring flowers and notes or pictures…a celebration of Spring. in other cultures theirs music bright color pole with ribbons that you dance around. .. a may pole , you ate cake. What I remember was making the baskets and going to neighborhood houses and giving a basket to an older or shut in person and then random houses. I did it as a child as well as my kids I always thought it was a fun time my kids thought so too. It was nice to see the smiles on peoples faces when they found them at their doors.
Another rainy cold dreary day but one it’s Friday and My Son had a great Track Meet ….their team won and he came in 1st in several races best part I was there to see it. I usually will not go to the meets if its raining and cold but It was a home meet (at his school) and I felt like sucking it up and said I will last as long as I can .So I bundled up took some ibuprofen for my hips and legs grabbed a throw blanket and off I went . ..Okay it was more then just cold it was down right damp and wet hahaha it started pouring so I had an umbrella and wrapped the blanket around me leaned into my husband and fence next to to my sons running event since the bleachers where soaked and enjoyed watching them run and do the long and triple jump and talked to other parents and my Mother in-law and made it to the last race which was his longer one the relay so I decided to walk out with my mother in-law who was ready to go and left my husband to finish watching. .Once in my car that heat went on full blast and I thought of the electric blanket that I would be in soon hahaha has I drove home I was happy that I made it through three of his races and seeing my sons happy proud face when he did so well, and hearing him cheer on his team . I was so happy I drove right past my house and then decided I would do a quick drive thru for burgers and fries for us ,easy supper and no cleanup well worth it. Now my husband and I are settled in with Miss Abigail the kitty and my son settling in his room after a nice hot bath until one of his friends text him to get together will see they all looked cold tired and wet when I left.
This is one of the perks about being a parent enjoying their accomplishments and knowing that they know how working hard pays off and not just sports but anything that they put their minds to. well going to go get under that blanket and enjoy a movie with my husband have a goodnight everyone.
This is my photo make up day for Monday, laptop was down. So this is a part of my world, this beautiful lake that is one of the hot summer spots . My daughter and I took a ride to it and it was alive with people opening up their lake houses and camps, kids happily riding their bikes adults walking and jogging, just such a happy place even though the lake is not ready for swimmers yet it’s very cold. There is also a beautiful eatery and bar which is called the lake house you can eat and have drinks on the sunny deck as you admire the lake view there’s music , a pool table and yes good food . So ready for the season to begin and enjoy and relax. I hope everyone enjoys .
This is my Photo for Photo Monday the picture looks a bit tattered hahaha yes it’s the original games very happily well used . My husband and I use to play Yahtzee all the time before we had kid’s and when they would finally settle down for the night when they where little . Now Uno we played a lot with kids they loved it .Actually my Son still enjoys it he plays it when his friends come over and their sick of being on their phones which I love ! . Friday night it was just my Son and I home which was a rare occurrence hahaha well for about an hr or so and we played Uno it was a nice moment. this is what I treasure and hold in my heart moments like this, just spontaneous . Then over the brutally cold weekend my husband and I played Yahtzee for the first time in yrs so that was another moment and now with the big 2017 Blizzard coming our way tomorrow morning my husband is home and my Daughter should be maybe I can gt her to play. My Son of course will be going to friends tonight since school is cancelled already and sleepover and be snowed in with some friends ….teenagers . I must say these games just get so neglected this day in time with all the technology that has taken over, it’s nice to be unplugged for awhile and enjoy what we grew up on . I am so happy my kids where born in the time board games where the in thing so they still can enjoy them. One of the other board games that we enjoyed was scrabble . Need to play that some time . Well enjoy my picture and if you have a favorite game let me know send me a comment back would love to know.
