I sit in the quietness of my house enjoying my coffee with Miss Abigail comfy in her chair my hubby and daughter both at work the temps in the 20 as the clouds are filling in …. At least the temps will go up a bit so I do not hear the cracking and snapping of the house . The photo I took yesterday being so cold the snow has iced over and made a shimmering glaze above the snow when the sun hit it . My son will be happy if this snow stays , messaging me close to his lights out time to say he maxed out the Physical training test thankfully is last one since he is suffering from a bad cold along with others there so he was feeling sore but he worked out because he was stiff …omg he doesn’t know down time he said he had to do fire guard so he said he was going to bed at 9 to get at least 3 hours of sleep to be ready at 1 till 2 then would go back to bed at 2 till 4 oh what a lousy night.. I’m sure he will be tired tonight . He said he would text but I would rather him rest. I’m hoping my daughter gets home ahead of the storm their predicting around 5 and she drives home for 5:30 so it shouldn’t be too bad and she doesn’t have far to drive.. thankfully .she is anticipating a relaxing night at home with Miss Abigail . Which I know Miss Abigail will enjoy . I think I’ll make a meatloaf for supper. And then settle in with my hubby and watch our shows and read. . I guess it’s time to do somethings around here before they get home 🙂
Well this Saturday seem to fly by.. it’s hard to believe it’s 7 in the evening. My hubby and I slept in a bit. Then we enjoyed our coffee and and breakfast . A bit later we headed out the door to get some food shopping done and the food my husband needs to fast with starting on Sunday for his colonoscopy on Monday… it was a nice ride the sun was shining and thankfully shopping was quick and easy ..then we headed for our after shopping coffee treat .. lol always can enjoy a coffee. 🙂 Arrived home with a ice coffee for my daughter , if my daughter is home and any of us get coffee we alway bring her a coffee home as well . She was happy to have one and enjoyed while she got ready for work. Worked a later shift today. Around 4 this afternoon my hubby watching tv while laying on the couch and I reading blogs plus my friend texting me off and on so I’m so focused on the two tasks…. my cell phone lights up with my sons face staring at me . I answered … he answers with a hey I’m on my way home I’ll be home in an hour. I’m like WHAT!! I swear my heart skipped a beat … my hubby looking at me puzzled , then my son says well in a week in a half at this time I will be heading home . I then realize ,came out of my dream that he was released sooner .. he chuckled then said in a sincere tone …that sounded nice to say ” I’ll be home in an hour” and I told him in deed it did. I guess I showed him how much I miss him and how ready I am for him to be back. We chatted for a bit until he let me go then I received a text of a photo of him in a CPR class . I swear he has a twin . There looked to be two of my son lol. He thought that was funny when I told him. An hour later he sent me a photo of a pizza and soda with the caption , Goood I just laughed I told my hubby well he’s happy he had a pizza delivered to the base . This only happens on weekends and in the AIT training. So he was happy. . Now my hubby and I are relaxing I’m thinking of reading while he is enjoying a documentary ,
Good morning everyone hope everyone’s having a good week . I can’t believe it’s Wed already . Been a less running around week then lasts . Last week I felt I needed to keep running around to keep my mind from thinking , wondering. And when that only helped a bit I just gave in and decided …. it’s okay to just stop and if my mind started thinking and wondering fine . Running from it was not going stop it. Things are different .. quieter .. less busy and yes I miss my son so much and it’s fine to feel that . And shed a tear or two or three ..(hahaha) so this week I realize after giving in to my feelings I’ve had a calmer week , I’ve kept busy no chance in that not happening house still needs to be kept up errands still need to be run and suppers still need to be made . But my mind as let me concentrate on reading and coloring . My husband and I are enjoying are shows together and we are joking more learning to be us again . Always have been but now it’s more joking just laughing to our own little things. . My daughter is still at home but has been out with friends and boyfriend and work so haven’t seen her much . I know soon enough my son will be home but I know this experience of his has started a shift in a change of how things will be .around here for all of us.
It’s been a very cold lazy Sunday it’s going on mid afternoon and all I’ve done is shower have coffee and then made some Chili and now simmering in crockpot and some cornbread to go with it for supper and now my husband and I are enjoying Sunday football on tv. A cup of hot chocolate or tea sounds good write now. Need something warm to drink . I should read my book but feeling that lazy 🙄 maybe later. Sometimes you just need a day of nothing. To rejuvenate . Miss Abigail is doing a good day of that snuggled in her chair sleeping away. Just love that furry girl . Wrote another letter for my son to be sent out on Monday with extra stamps and envelopes he asked for . Miss him dearly. I hope it’s going better . I believe no phone call for two weeks. … just happy I can at least write to him . Enjoying the letter writing too much (hahaha) letters are about two pages long . I need to shorten them. I just get writing and before I know it I have two pages. Well time to check my chili and maybe start the kettle for some tea and open my book. 🙂
It’s Monday already but a holiday so my hubby had off ..well he took the whole week off seeing that we need to bring my son to the local base on Wed.. he decided to take some vacation time. Any how yes it’s Monday and with the shorter days weekends go by so much more quickly. It was a dreary wet cold one but that’s okay we did some errands in town then grabbed some hot chocolate and took our time driving home. Once home I made a simple supper for the two of us and then we settled in with nightly news and now our shows . It’s nice having him home there’s no set time he needs to get to sleep so he can get up for work … but the funny thing is we are ready to shut the tv and lights off after are shows are over and get some sleep . I guess it’s just because it’s relaxing doing just whatever no routine. Need time like this once in awhile It’s a nice break. The house is quiet my daughter with her boyfriend and my son with a friend spending one last night for awhile before he leaves, tomorrow he will get everything together and my husband and I will take him out for supper . Still waiting to see what time he needs to be at the base Wed .. ughh they say he will find out tomorrow . Hmm it’s the Army their time .. but it’s all good . I’m hoping a little bit later then early to bring him. My shows on that I’ve been waiting for . Loving the show Manifest . So time to watch it have a good night everyone.
Tonight my hubby and I went and enjoyed a night ride and ice cream with our Son. This was the amazing site we saw as we were out. This photo does not do it justice but you can get the idea of how red and big it was . Absolutely beautiful. So happy my Son suggested the ride and ice cream❤️
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!
