It’s a cold icy Sunday night outside the sleet and freezing rain started this early evening both kids where out …as the ground became a blanket of white ..with the sleet and not pretty especially in the middle of April …. I’m happy we are all home now . Thankfully the kids got off the roads earlier then usual. My son went to bed relaxing with his music . My daughter is enjoying the Country Music Awards with Miss Abigail in their place as hubby and I are enjoying them too settled in bed nice and warm. .well off to finish enjoying the awards and hearing the sleet bouncing off the windows . I hope whoever is out tonight and on the roads stay safe.
it’s a rainy night actually enjoy it love rainy nights it’s a reminder that Spring is here and soon summer will be ,really nice when the windows will be able to be open at night more , love the sound of the peepers and crickets , you can here the trains whistle clearer which can be kind of an eerie sound as well as the boys ( coyotes) howling or hunting in our woods. Part of living in the country . Happy to say we are all home tonight settle in our beds . It’s a nice feeling for a change . I think Miss Abigail is happy to have my daughters bed tonight when she isn’t home Miss Abigail cannot settle so she roams the house or scratches at our bed. When my daughter went down to Their place she happily went along ahead of her 🙂 now the TV is off replaced by the humming of the fan so off to sleep soon here you can hear my sons fan as well … yeah it’s a thing my family does cannot sleep without a sound of a fan blowing. I’ve adapted to it wasn’t always my thing . Well eyes are getting heavy time for some sleep . Good night everyone in my part of the world .
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 .
Ahh so happy there is really no snow coming our way, I want the schools track to stay clear . 3rd day of track and field practice for my son. I believe he’s enjoying it. I’m happy to see him content at the moment . The evenings here and my hubby and I have finished our dinner and cleaned up the kitchen now we are just relaxing in the quietness of our house watching the evening news and it’s 6:30 here and still light out which is a plus. My daughter is still working but heading back out later with a friend., my son arrived home from practice with a couple of his buddies and have gone out can’t complain he’s been home the past three nights , that’s a record for him hahaha.. after the news I think I will settle and read the book my daughter lended me . It feels nice to be reading again. . I think we will have company though when my daughter goes out later Miss Abigail will be laying with my hubby and I ❤️
Even though it was was just one of those days during the week that your basically just doing what you do your mind is at ease you get things done easily and it’s just makes for a pleasant day 🙂 I think it helps that today is the last day of January …..not my favorite month . Plus I ran in to my favorite nephew who my son could be his mini me even though my nephew is in his 30’s him and my son resemble one another in just about every way looks their mannerisms …. and girls are attracted to them and they know it but they know what they want . Their hearts are both so big . So that made my day to see him and his lady . After that I came home and started making my homemade chicken and rice soup which happily it’s done and the house smells so good , Perfect on this cold day. . Now just waiting for everyone to come home . Once again I will remind you it really doesn’t take much to make me happy❤️
The house is quiet my sons friends all went home the kitchen is clean thanks to my hubby ..and now we are all relaxing my son watching a movie no exams for him tomorrow he did them today and then Fri he has some so that’s good he can relax my hubby and I are relaxing in bed, I’m enjoying my book and he is watching tv ..was hoping he would read but that’s okay the book will be there on his shelf.
Like I’ve said in my past posts he’s not a reader I just pushed it hoping it would help him to relax but that will not be he what relaxes him by running and hiking is it where I cannot with my hip . But it’s all good . We just have our own thing what relaxes me is writing reading and coloring. Yes I would love to hike and run , I use to be able to but as I got older and had kids it’s not easy and that’s okay because I’m lucky to have been able to have kids and that is the greatest gift and sacrifice. When they where younger I was younger so I was able to do a lot with them and it was perfect to be able , now their older and I’m older and my job has lesson as well as my body of doing a lot of things. what I can do is sit and watch my sons track meets well In the spring more seating available the indoor winter meets my hubby goes and messages me. I can enjoy a cup of coffee with my oldest my daughter and I love to chat with our coffee and go to a book store and get our books. I can make supper for my family and my hubby cleans up and then we settle and watch our favorite shows or movies so it’s taught me one thing getting older and having no choice but to slow down that it’s not a bad thing that the most simplest things are just as important if more then the bigger things and when my house is filled with my kids friends and their filling the quiet with laughter and loud music and messing my kitchen up making food that is what I call a special moment . Life isn’t always easy but it’s good and it’s how you look at it and that is what life should be about not what and how much you have material wise but how many special moments you make and have to look back on .
I was walking down our hall and happen to look out one of the windows of our spare room and saw this😳 I’m like what is that ?I slowly got closer and there it was this silly squirrel just hanging around eating berries off the tree . Never saw such a thing ,pretty much his tail is holding him there. I had my daughter grab her phone and she slowly made it to the window to capture this .so the credits go to my daughter for the photo.I was afraid if I moved he would notice and move as well. They are every where I’m afraid when Spring comes we will be over run by squirrels . There popluation is growing. At least he’s a happy little guy🙂
