On Monday it was a holiday so my husband had it off and we decided to take a ride. The sun was shining but the temps where only 19 it was nice and warm in the car . We thought we would check out all the ice that everyone was talking about . The ice as you see was unbelievable, it’s so thick it’s pretty how it flows down on the ledges of the side of the banks of the mountains . They look like beautiful sculptures . The mountain you see is the mountain my sons track team hiked up as well on the day off for practice , he’s hiked that plenty of times and never it gets old. The younger new kids on the team loved it. So that was exciting to see where he hikes I had never seen it until that day it looks so amazing with bright blue sky above it . I must sa it was such a nice way to spend a cold winter day away from the house with my husband and what better way to end the ride but a stop at one of our favorite coffee places for a white chocolate with a swirl of raspberry coffee so good. ❤️
When you just happen to look out your kitchen window while your treating yourself to some hot chocolate and you see a beautiful sight in your back yard… a beautiful buck and you know your husband is outside and the buck has his eyes on him but doesn’t mind. Sadly I didn’t get a photo because I was just so happy to see it . It’s always the same way when I happen to just look out . When I look for them there is nothing.but I guess that’s what makes the moment so special . Such a beautiful creature and I am so happy we have the privilege to see them and they know their safe here..The simple things in life❤️
I guess we are never to old to learn . . I’m learning I need to let things go I had posted in my last post how I was worried about my daughter and her relationship she is in . We had a good talk and we are on the same page , I thought we where not this is where I am letting people work things out for themselfs ( my kids) and not to let things get to me when it’s not to my liking well or different then what I’m use to . ..my daughter is doing what she needs and wants to do at her own pace. I find I’m connecting better with my kids lately . Things baby books you get when your expecting doesn’t teach you how to be a mother to them when their older but then again I never read them. I just went by my heart and my hearts is telling me now this is right what I’m learning , ,it’s hard I find myself biting my tongue a lot lately this is going to take some time but I need to let go a bit more and let them learn to take care of things and let them fail too if that’s the case.
This is good for me too and my husband we are doing more together with just us and this we have not done much of since we had kids . It’s strange how thinks come full circle again but we are older now and what we did then we do not do now it’s so much different but I’m enjoying the difference . Change is good.
So it’s a quiet night no friends just the Fam and we are all settled in the only sound I hear is the humming of the air conditioner and for the moment my husband snoring softly…hmm this may get a bit noiser . My son is still recovering from Saturday’s Spartan race thought he could try practice after school because he told us it felt better to keep moving then sitting is legs tighten up sitting . Well he came home and was walking like a mummy once again so I believe he over did it…. always never does anything half way , all or nothing. So he ate and showered and at 7:30 was in bed for the night. My daughter has just arrived home from work so just before her coming home we heard this noise yes always noises with us…but it was like a rumble or rolling something around kind of noise so my husband said oh I believe he’s up I am telling him no when our son goes to bed that’s exactly what he does. So my poor husband starts walking through the house , went down to my daughters downstairs back into check our son …nothing but still noise so he went outside comes in whips open the bedroom window says listen we waited and I heard it in the distance, it sounded like a grand finale of fireworks but where and why ? It’s a Tuesday night .. so strange my husband was just happy I heard it and he figured it out instead of thinking he was loosing his mind hahaha but anyways so strange why? … always something .
So tonight I’m sitting in the recliner my husband laying on the couch watching an oldie but goodie Tx show MASH. ..and he was talking I started gabbing away on and on in detail about something funny that happened while he was at work. I get done and I’m laughing and i ask him you didn’t find that funny …nothing he is out cold I’m like what wait noo he can’t be well okay he can be he has been al day at work out in the hot sun paving but he was just taking and wide awake …so I feel stupid hahaha for going on like I did and Miss Abigail was even sleeping. So I turn my attention back to the t.v. show and out of the corner of my eye he is swaying his foot back and forth and I look he is watching tv again …I’m like did you hear what I was t elling you a bit ago ? He is Like what ? No what did you say ?I’m like omg for another night I don’t feel like explaining again he was like wow I guess I fell asleep I’m like hmmm yeah .from now on no big conversations while he is laying on the couch hahaha. Anyone have this issue with their Better half ? ☺
Aww it’s Friday , can’t complain wasn’t a bad week actually very pleasant. Monday was a holiday so we let the rain come down and skipped having a cookout and went out to eat . then it was My Son’s Track banquet which started off pretty scary as they where predicting severe thunderstorms we where driving right into it with my semi new white yes white car getting hit by quarter size hail.. we let my son drive because it was at the coaches new house he knew the way and I let my husband sit up in front to help him just in case well as I was having a major freak out sorry can’t think of another way to explain what I was feeling or doing as the hail just shattered down on my car and I’m trying to block my ears and mind of what my car would look like after My son pulled off the road to a logging road under a tree to protect it a bit the wind was blowing so bad and it was so dark the scene was like out of a movie. luckily the storm passed and car was fine covered in leaves and dirt but that was do able . So we got to the banquet safely and it was fun and sad at the same time seeing the seniors say goodbye we will miss those runners especially my son ..Then Thursday night my daughter and I sat out on our deck under the star’s and enjoyed the peepers as well . Tonight ..Friday it’s a chilly one and my husband has to work on Saturday and my son will be at the mountain bike park early practicing for his down hill race on Sunday which is scaring excuse my language but it’s scaring the hell out of me I will be there to watch and will be holding my breath till he is safely down that mountain ..but for now settled in on this Friday night under our covers watching television. Watching repeat of America’s Got Talent showing it for people who missed the 1st night so enjoying that again. Well everyone have a good night.
Tonight I have this strange feeling , almost an uneasy feeling maybe its because the temps have dropped dramaticlly so one I’m freezing and its making my head feel out of it .or maybe it was the the little talk my son and I had and it did not turn out to well ..so it not sitting well with me. …but that is for another day…anyways we had the living room window open a bit for Miss Abagail she loves looking out at night and listening to the peepers are they loud tonight they have been half the day ..isn’t that unusual for them to be out during the day? My husband and I where relaxing in the living room watching TV when we both looked at one another and he turned the TV down. My husband was like did you hear that It was a whistle sound okay as much as I did not want to agree I did it was so eerie. I told him the other night while we where sleeping well he was I was trying too I heard that same noise at first I thought it was him he can make some weird noises in his sleep he laughed at the remark. but it wasn’t when I heard it again It sent chills up my spine and I pulled the covers up closer to my head,,,, but then it was gone .I hate night sounds especially when your house is surrounded by woods. Does anyone know if there is a bird or animal that makes that strange whistle noise at night. It’s just so unusual for us we have never heard that before.
