Well this three day weekend went by fast…. it was nice not having to be anywhere and having some down time . I know your probably thinking she always has down time🙄 but the thought of not thinking of what I need or didn’t do was nice .. I just cozied in under a blanket with my book , journal, tea or hot chocolate and yes my coffee. With some good conversation with my husband and daughter and her boyfriend. And texting quite a bit with my son in Missouri 🙂 Sunday was a day of snow and then a beautiful sunset in the evening and ending the day with an amazing Lunar Eclipse I actually manage to stay up for. My daughter and her boyfriend did too. It took two hours . But it was defiantly worth it. Thankfully we watched it from my bedroom window, being that is was only 2 out there was no way I was going outside …bad enough the house was cold so getting into my bed with the electric blanket on felt good.
Today the temps stayed at 2 so I did not leave the house. My husband and daughter did they wanted to try a coffee from our local coffee shop down the road. There was an almond marshmallow flavored one so they brought me one back. So good . While they were out grabbing coffees I made Shepard’s pie for supper. And wrote in my journal. Chatted with my son not as much today . As he was enjoying his last day of his four day weekend relaxing with his army buddies and getting ready to start back up with their MOS classes for the week. And even earlier wake up he’s not looking forward too again. Back to routine tomorrow for my husband and daughter. While I run some errands . So I guess I will finish up one more thing and go settle under my blankets and read a bit before getting some sleep but not before I say goodnight to my son.
I cannot believe as I look at the time that it’s 8 at night. It gets early so quick now that it feels like I just sat down and started coloring… I guess not 🙂 finished my page though ,so that’s good. Very happy with it and feeling relaxed . I think it’s time to make a hot cup of tea and enjoy some tv with my husband now . Chilly night so the tea will be welcoming. Here is my finished page.
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 ? ☺
