Half way through this week already . And a very humid Wednesday. Enjoyed my coffee and some small talk with my son this morning. As the humidity kept rolling in . Thankfully the new air conditioner is in and works great ! So great my son asked if we could turn it off as he pulled on a sweatshirt. Let’s see after going for a run and a swim early morning he sat with his damp suit on trying to finish some last minute college info. I just sat there shaking my head at him. Okay I will admit I did lower the function on it Since I was cold 😂I actually went outside to warm up. Let’s see that lasted about 3 mins …. I think the deck was reaching temps in the 90’s with the humidity . As my son got ready for work I busied myself with things around the house . Not much needed to be done the house was pretty kept up .I settled and watched my soaps and then made supper for my hubby and I . What do you do when the evenings unbearable outside. You read and drink water of course chat with the hubby’s🙂my daughter is out from work but with her boyfriend and my son is still at work. So it’s Just hubby and I and Miss Abigail. Miss antsy girl tonight. Happy to say I’m about two maybe three small chapters away to finishing my book . Loved this book Fly Away by Kristin Hannah . It’s just really sad but isn’t all her books sad … but always have such a beautiful meaning and great story to keep you eagerly turning the pages.Love the first book in the series. Fire Fly lane . Defiantly worth the read. Well that said I am going to try finishing it and then I can start on my next read. I’ll post it when I start it. Have a great night. …oh Thunderstorm warning going across the bottom of our TV screen! I hope we get a thunderstorm ! love them at night . I do love them better when both kids are home ,my daughter should be fine she is at her boyfriends house . I hope my son gets home before they come our way. He’s delivering food until 9 and storms are predicted for 10. He can always stay out at work if he needs to . Yes I’m a mother …. constantly thinking ..worrying of my kids, even as adults🙄 I should just calm my hubby down who is pacing around the house and outdoors like a dog ( hahaha) he always does this when they are being predicted. He doesn’t like them one bit. Ok have a good night everyone….
It was a rainy soggy humid day. Even though the sun came out for a bit it didn’t do much to dry everything up before the rain came back in in many strains.. My hubby suffering from a cold as well as my daughter and now I feel I am but desperately hoping it’s allergies . I took advantage of the rainy day to finish reading my book as my hubby napped on the couch and my daughter napped down in her place until she had to go to work later in the day as well as my son. So both of my kids at work still . It’s 8:30 at night and I have finished looking for Alaska . Such a good book. John Green has such a way with his words . His writing is so different from other authors . His books are just unique . It’s the only word I can come up with to describe them. If only he wrote more. Now on to my next read The Road by Cormac McCarthy hoping I will enjoy it . I’ll keep you posted how I’m doing with it and if I’m enjoying it.
The air is still warm and sticky and the peepers are so loud echoing through the house. My kids won’t arrive home until 9 and 10 . I think I will start on this next book and see how far I get until they get home or my eyes get to heavy to read . In between sneezing … oh so much tissue used today.. have a good night everyone.
Once again another rainy day .. and once again very humid getting unbearable. Nothing like feeling cabin fever in the summer. Sunday it looks like the rain will be gone at the moment it’s sunny again but hearing more storms coming in and then Sunday the sun will shine but it will be 90! and humid and my son will be participating in the Triathlon after all ,his ankle looks better and he says it feels good so will see after he’s done what it feels like ..he pretty set up for it ready to do his thing. I’m wondering how much sleep he will get tonight.. always the night before a race he can’t sleep. It’s going to be a lot of work on his part but this is what gets his adrenaline pumping it’s his passions doing these races, I’m trying not to ask much about it or he starts to clam up and roll his eyes at me . I must say since he has turned 18 this past week he is enjoying the freedom of it #1the no curfew of being off the road driving after 12:30 #2 being able to go into night clubs and listen to music and dance , yes they card no 18 yr old drinking but there’s always ways around that ,sadly been 18 .. ughh oh and #3 no asking 24 /7 (figure of speech ) what he’s up to? So yes 18!is a bit nerve wracking . Let’s say it didn’t help my sleeping pattern last night . Hopefully better sleep tonight so I can be there with my hubby wide awake to cheer him on. 🙂
On to a new subject the Stephen King book I am reading. Hmmm let’s say it’s now very creepy but I want to know how it ends . I’m trying to finish it I almost done. At first I thought it was mild for his kind of writing well now in being in the middle of it , it’s defiantly his kind of writing and what he does best scare us, creep us out well at least for myself (hahaha) I’m hoping to finish it tonight. Seeing the time 7 in the evening already I think I better try finishing it . Have a good night everyone.
Since Sunday it’s been a crazy ride with Mother Nature… to begin it’s endlessly humid , then one moment the sun is shining and the humidity doesn’t matter it’s bright and beautiful .. then you turn your back for one second and it’s down pouring , so you go in , I then think okay now to find something inside to do well once again the sun is out . Ok Mother Nature why? It’s been no fun , this is predicted for the whole week, nothing like cabin fever in the summer. 🙄 on Monday it was spent with back and forth being in the car , my daughter needed rides to the garage then back to it after her brakes were fixed then I had errands to run . Let’s say my curls went to frizz every time I ran out in the rain. I will be happy when Mother Nature decides to make up her mind.
My last post I wrote was about getting ready for my Sons Birthday get together with his friends . Let’s say 12 newly graduated kids showed up his “friend group” as he calls it. They ate pizza , burgers , chips made endless s’mores and roasted marshmallows over the bonfire ,they played corn hole , at one point as my other half and I sat inside watching a movie we could hear the endless chatter , laughing , then it got quiet so my other half and I looked at one another and decided to look out …. there they sat all around the fire, talking quietly serious faces on some and some looking around at one another. I think this bunch was realizing how life had turned a new corner .. new chapter whatever you want to call it but it was now going to be different them all on new a paths not all following one another into another school year as they where so used to for so many years. Around 11 the gathering came to an end one by one kids left and 4 stayed over, after cleaning up what was left of food outside they came in and settled in his room paying Xbox , my other and I picked up a bit more then we shut everything off and went to bed …as I laid there in the the darken room I absorbed the laughter and the chatting sound echoing through the walls a bites well as the sound of friendly wrestling . I smiled but felt in my heart how I will miss these moments.
