It’s been a good proud, happy, fun laughter filled day and now everything is picked up everyone’s gone home my son has gone to be with his friends to look back on this memorable day last day of being together as a class .. hubby is sleeping and I’m with Miss Abigail curled up in the living room chair for once .. needing some down time for myself before I settle in bed.. hmm so many things going through my mind. With in just hrs I now look at my son and I am finally able to face that he is a young man now .. no going back to high school in the fall no Booster Days no Football game … track meets .. no class color day ..etc. its pretty mind blowing. Big thing … what do I do now? All I have ever known is to be a mom , to do play dates with them , Halloween trick orc treat go to meets, bottom line take care of them , now both my kids have graduated and I will be in a different roll now . It’s scary actually , I will need to figure this out some how .. I will have plenty of spare time .. I guess my son and I will both be on a new journey …
Laying here in the darkness … only the sound of the fan humming the peepers have gone quiet ,a storm must be coming in . There is no moonlight lighting up the bedroom. Miss Abigail has been antsy as well . So I lay here and hoping that I can fall asleep soon . Or my mind will start thinking …. was going to relax after my sons meet but there was food to make for my hubby and son. After they got home they lost the meet but their in 2nd place . My son won all his races so he is happy about that they did good for being undefeated this long to going against an undefeated team they did their bests. Then my daughter and her boyfriend came up from her place and wanted to chat, then texts from a friend who’s son is having a graduation party with my son wanting a list of what I had for plans . So went from relaxing straight to bed after .. Tomorrow is Prom so they’ll be pictures to take ,
The wind is picking up nothing like a thunderstorm at night . It’s a cozy feeling .my eyes are getting heavy ahh that’s good maybe I can get to sleep a bit earlier tonight. Everyone else has settled and sleeping I guess I should too. Well I will try to get my prayers in before I fall asleep ..last night I started saying them and fell asleep half way through. So will see how tonight goes. Good night everyone🌙
Good Morning ,it’s been some quiet mornings this week just Miss Abigail and I she’s roaming around in the house as I sit outside enjoying my coffee . Another beautiful day suns shining the air is a bit cooler then the other mornings but feels refreshing. I have been trying to get use to these moments of quietness … as each day passes it’s one day closer to a quieter house. No more doors opening and closing continuously , no houseful of kids ransacking our cupboards for food. No loud music playing unless it’s my hubby or I (hahaha) I think that actually will be me playing more music to drown out the quietness.. no more sport meets to run too that will be the hardest for my hubby to adjust to.. My children will still live at home for a bit ..but now they will both be adults and living their life doing their thing . My daughter working getting closer to her new boyfriend spending more time away from the house, my son ,college / National Guards and spending also more time away as well. . Time sure does fly by and I’m still / trying to adapt to a new journey myself . I will be spending more time now with friends then taking care of this house. I’m hoping my hubby can adapt easily he is thinking a lot about things too … I know I need to go back to my motto ..take it one day at a time . Hmmm so hard taking your own advise. Oh but I will. 🙂
Friday night started with sitting outside relaxing with the hubby’s the peepers where out and vocal the stars and bats above , yes two bats getting their nightly meal flying above us . They can get pretty close it makes you flinch . Well I do hahaha as we where sitting outside I thought I saw lightening off in the distance. So we kept an eye out and we notice the skies began to get darker by the minute and the stars disappeared and the bats must have sensed a storm they where no longer in sight ,we went inside and soon enough the wind picked up the rain came pouring down and Miss Abigail ran under our bed. We went from humid temps to cooler air and it feels so good. Now we are settled in bed both kids out with friends and hubby and I are ready for some sleep. So time to say goodnight and say my prayers . And let the sound of the rain relax.
Saturday came as fast as it went . My son won two medals with his track team and then decided after to get together with a couple of his buddies so my hubby dropped him off at his car and hubby came home, as soon as he walked in the door I noticed right off he looked like a lobster , he was so sun burned on his face and arms . He said he would go good shopping with me so we left so he could come home and relax . Thankfully it didn’t take long. Hours later my son arrived just as sunburned but wet… him and his buddies decided it would be a good idea to jump in the river . He said it was shockingly cold . Oh I believe it the ice on the rivers just finally melted about a week ago so yes it may have been warm out but the rivers are not ready for visitors. Boys! 🙄
It’s night now the peepers are out and are making the noises they do best . Air is warm but with a slight cool breeze blowing in so lightly the fresh air through our open windows.The moon is full so the woods are lit up . The turkeys that was in the yard earlier as moved on until tomorrow hey come back everyday till Fall is here.we are settled in bed watching a movie lone Survivor ,hmm ..yeah just what a mom wants to see who’s son wants to do this… speaking of my son he is fast asleep after getting up at 6 this morning to get ready for his race and after a swim and the sunburn . He looked exhausted and in know mood for small talk just made his food showered and said a goodnight. Miss Abigail is doing laps up and down the hallway I wonder if my son can hear the thumping of her paws against the wood floor. . The full moon is helping her with this 🙂. Love the sound of the peepers at night . To settle your mind and let you drift off to sleep. Well it will be nice to hear Better after the movies over.. I guess I will finish watching then get some sleep . Good night everyone.
it’s been a quiet but productive start to the day had to run back out and grab more eggs as I see the empty carton on the counter …my son letting me know we where out. This boy of mine can eat …being a runner he burns a lot of calories and he can eat, all good things he is on his strict diet . He usually has a cheat day after a meet which was on Tues but Saturday his track team have a big meet so he is staying on track . I didn’t mind running out the sun is out and it’s just the right temps so it was a nice drive into town. Now back home and finishing up the laundry and prepping supper to cook in the crockpot will be next…so yes the house is quiet Miss Abigail sleeping away on the couch . I think she is happy someone’s home now, when I walked into the house there she sat in the middle of the kitchen floor which is becoming her new thing when people leave .
The blue bird is back peeking into my living room window and tapping on the screen this has been going on for about two weeks now off and on . Can’t figure it out . I know it makes Miss Abigail a bit unsettled . I really just do not know why . I’m afraid if we open my living room door it will come flying in and I’m just going to say I will be the one then outside (hahaha) I am not getting stuck in a house with a bird . Well the washer just stopped so time to finish that and start supper . Hoping for a beautiful sunset later to capture , it’s been a bit since I posted one . Love them so much.🙂
Good Morning! the sun is shining a bit chilly but warming up ,cannot believe it’s Monday …the weekend , vacation flew by .Sunday was spent out on our deck with my kids in the morning well my daughter and I sitting my son laying (hahaha) after the photo taken in our local newspaper of his Track meet on Friday he didn’t like how white he looked so he was trying to tan up a bit , well let’s just say not much but my face had sunburned … hubby was happily working on his barn . As the day progressed the day stayed warm and windows where open and the music blared from my sons room as he did the task of vacation homework . My daughter went to work and my hubby took a break and we went for a ride . Nice finish to a day outside.
Night came and it was about 8 and I was doing a few things in the bedroom when my daughter came in looking for Miss Abigail who was enjoying herself sitting on the window sill looking out to the darken lawn and the sounds of the peepers my daughter saw this and so let her be , so laying on my bed with her phone I got done with what I was doing and and shut the light off since the shades where open my daughter and I where chatting about random things when she said did you hear that ? … listen so I did and looked at her she said that’s a strange sounding dog . I listen some more then I heard it in a distant . It was this lonely howl not so much as a bark but cry at first I thought the boys where close ( coyotes) but my hubby had heard it as well said it sounded like a fox . We know Miss Abigail heard it she jumped off the window sill very fast . She wanted no part of it . Summers coming and this will be our nights now with windows open and the sounds of nature echoing in . We can now here the trains and their whistles more clearly … still a creepy sound to me now more then ever🙂
The coffee taste good and my son is running around getting ready for school ,has his school face on … if your a parent of a teenager some may know the school face 😂 so that being said I’m leaving him be to do is thing. Onwards to the last 5 weeks of school …High School at that. Now a lot of homework exams , sports , and stress plus bittersweet moments. Hmm not going to be easy … time to finish coffee and get the washing machine going . Have a great day everyone.
