Woke to 60 and a bit humid after it’s been in the 40’s . A shock to the system. Sat out on the deck absorbing the beautiful weather . Had my book and my bottle of water ….but couldn’t focus on my book . The peepers were so loud I put my book down and closed my eyes and just relaxed and took in the warmth and the sounds around me. It was beautiful. Its a little before 8 at night and the sounds are amazing . The peepers are even louder and I believe I can hear the frog in our little homemade pond. That needs to be cleaned up from the winter. Miss Abigail is enjoying the windows open running from room to room looking listening to the outside. Ahh to only see what she can see out there. I will let you listen . This is taken from my bedroom window tonight. Enjoy.
It’s another cold day, but warm enough to open the front door letting some sun in even though the clouds are over shadowing the most part of the sun. The house was quiet. .. As usual and cleaned up . Supper was easy and simple hamburgers. Is what it was and now the kitchen is clean …well for now until my son comes home and cooks his food. My hubby is relaxing on the couch with Miss Abigail above his head laying comfortably on the top of the couch . The week is going by fast . Wednesday already. It’s looking like a rainy weekend tho.. I’m hoping Thurs and Fri will be nice to get out for a bit on the deck and catch some sun. Well I guess I will finish a few things then get some reading done. I feel like I’m just jiibbering . well a bit more today lol😂
Woke up to a sunny warm morning.. so crazy after going to bed with snow coming down and covering the ground. This morning for a good part of the day my husband painted while I moved things on the counters so he could get to the walls. It’ looks so good I’m amazed how refreshing a new color makes you feel about your home . So loving it. It actually makes our kitchen look so much bigger. Miss Abigail we are surprised loves plastic . Found her on the plastic my hubby was using to cover the hallway floor while painting. We have a bit more above the countertop to paint and the hall needs another coat . But my husband called it a day with it around 3. He took shower then laid down for a bit . I went out on the deck to absorb some sun ..
I believe I found how to meditate without even trying to . I was sitting on the deck sun shining down on me it was so bright so I closed my eyes and the warmth of the sun on my face felt so good . I sat there letting the sun warm me . I kept hearing this slight creaking noise that I believe was coming from our solar candle lantern that was hanging on our little barn /shed the slight breeze was swinging it back and forth . My mind was focused on that sound which also cleared my mind from thinking that I could hear the birds chirping in the distance . The leaves krinklingv as they blew around my mind actually was not thinking of anything just relaxed and taking in the sounds around me . It was such a nice calm feeling . Is that a form of meditation ? I hope so it would be nice to mediate more .. I sat out for a bit my hubby and I decided to do our one day weekend takeout so until my hubby arrived home after grabbing it the evening air was chilly so we stayed in and watched tv but at least could see the sunset from my living room window.
Ahh Friday is here which means a payday and bill day . Ughhh the dread but all done, as supper is cooking in my crockpot so love that contraption. The house is filled with the delicious aroma of pot roast cooking. House is clean for the most part . Now finishing my daytime show. As the house is quiet . Even Miss Abigail is not here .. well she is but has herself tucked away down in her place . Nice and comfy I’m sure. It’s a dreary cold day so she has the right idea. My son got a call back from one of the jobs he applied to , he has a in interview on Monday . I’m crossing my fingers and praying doesn’t hurt. They respect him being in the military so they understand about drills . So that is good. I know it’s a law they have to let him but they respect it which is the good part. For now he has his first weekend drill since being back from Basic Training this weekend. I guess it’s time to cook what sides will go with the roast. Of course it’s going to be mashed potato .. my family loves them! As I finish up on this post outside my window there is some snow coming down… yeah .. not😥
It’s The first day of Spring . The sun is shining and it’s not too bad temp wise. I cleaned up some of the kitchen then settled in front of the tv catching up once again with the morning news and my cup of coffee or two … then went outside to catch some sun going on the deck for a bit to feel the sun on my face. I capture some pics while I was out there. Now I’m back in and on Miss Abigail patrol … ughh she never liked couches before . But now with this new used leather/ vinyl. sectional so better condition then my old couch is exhausting .. she wants to be on it but her claws … so like I posted found a cover and hoping it comes in sooner then their predicting , next week. I do not know how to keep her off of it especially while we are not all home. Well she can stay downstairs in my daughter and her place but she’s had such freedom to the whole house . But so be it it’s what will have to be . The cover should protect it from her claws .. thick enough. It just needs to arrive. Right now I manage to get her in her chair an old rocking chair that she loves or loved … for now. Leftovers tonight .. love those nights just as much as take out . My hubby may not like it but hmm ..it’s food🙂 and there is a lot leftover since it was only my hubby and I who ate it. Thinking my daughter was going to be home but she went out with a friend. Well time to do something’s I’ve been neglecting . 🙂
It’s 10:30 at night and as I lay here in the darkness of my room it’s amazing how peaceful it is . My house is quiet but yet it’s not .I can hear my husband next to me softly sleeping , And then the sound of my son and his friends quietly talking and laughing down the hall. Occasionally hearing the door to the refrigerator opening and closing. ..Boys always hungry. Off in the distance I can hear a train on the tracks rumbling along through the night ,surprisingly over the sound of the fan my husband cannot sleep without and now I have now grown accustomed too, off and on I hear the furnace turn on and occasionally the sound of Miss Abigail jumping around downstairs hopefully not keeping my daughter awake . Playing with something she found. Soon we will hear the coyotes has they make their way through our woods at night and the cry of an owl going after it’s prey . The night some times so quiet and peaceful yet active and alive. As I drift off to sleep I am content . And feel blessed of this simple life my husband and I have made.
