It’s Tuesday night a little after 8 and its already getting dark. I know the last several posts I have stated this. I guess it’s just unbelievable to me. A long lazy summers just seems not to be that way anymore …every summer they just go by a bit faster. Football is being talked about more . Back to school shopping is showing up everywhere from TV commercials to stores stocking up on school supplies. College dorm essentials . My son is doing pretty good with that… soon he will be away and my front door opening and closing will get a little break. Mom will get her car back on a regular basis and the bike will be stored away in the barn. All will be calm and quiet….. hmmm something I am looking forward to a bit….Okay maybe not (hahaha) Oh its a mother’s problem . I am sure he is ready for a change. I just looked out and it’s 8:30 and its completely dark out. There is no fire fly’s lightening up the darkness. At least the humming of the air conditioner is gone for now ,windows are open soon Miss Abigail will figure this out and find her way to an open window. Ahh the breeze gently blowing in from the windows is beautiful. surprisingly there is a bit of a chill to it. Such extreme this weather is .The air smells fresh and clean for once. If it wasn’t 8:30 at night I honestly could enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee . I can just smell it’s aroma ….not good to think about or I will not be sleeping tonight… Well I think It’s time to read a bit before I call it a night.Have a great night everyone And If you enjoyed my random thoughts tonight thank you!
Ahhh…It’s Friday this week is over . car garage appointments done . My son has his bike back . That was interesting following him home after bringing him to grab his bike .It gave me the chance to see how well he handles it. Now I seem to breath a bit easier when I see him drive out of the driveway, he has a lot of confidence. It was raining a bit Thinking we would have to stop some where but we made it straight through. Now to relax and enjoy the air conditioners this weekend since their predicting temps reaching a 100 and over with humidity, a lot of warnings being posted how to stay cool. I can only speak for myself when I say I will stay in and enjoy reading my book . and watching movies. for the rest of my family whatever they decide to do cant stop them if they want to venture out in it. This the sky tonight It’s pretty ,everything outside looks orange from it. It amazes me when this happens.
Good news we finally obtained some rain not a lot but a couple of good downpours that we needed . The grass everywhere you look is turning brown and everything is withered looking . Ms Abigail finally looks content she has been very quiet this week. I think she doesn’t like the air on because she can’t enjoy sitting in the open
window . Sadly Miss Abigail will have to wait until the weekend is over before she sees an open window. It’s now night and the air outside has become even more humid and heavy feeling. Not good … well time to settle couldn’t sleep last night so I think I will try to get some sleep a bit earlier tonight. Good Night.
It’s a cool Monday night . Outside the sky is speckled in stars and the crescent moon bright enough to cast shadows along the edges of our woods. The frogs you can hear in the distance and firefly’s are out and about making it look magical as they light up the ground and the trees . Inside the house is quiet and dark as everyone including Miss Abigails is tucked away in their rooms for the night. I thought I would take advantage and cozy up on the couch and enjoy my next new book.
My mind changed quickly as I saw the front outside light turn on . It’s probably just an animal running through the yard… but no I couldn’t leave it at that , my imagination got the best of me. Earlier on Facebook there was a post that someone escaped from the jail around 2pm and they still hadn’t found him. To keep a look out. Now it’s about an hour and a half away from where he escaped and honestly I do not think he would come our way it would be too easy to get caught. But sadly my imagination wouldn’t let it go so I shut the light off checked the doors again . And ran down the hall to our bedroom ( hahaha) now I’ve tucked myself in bed . This is the girl who just received a stack of Stephen King books from my sister to read … hmm will see how that goes . Ridiculous … right? It’s been a strange day so why not top it off with a strange night. ..Spooking myself I really good at. 🙄
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’s been raining sense we all woke this morning. The house was so dark . The rain pouring down so hard it vibrated on the roof and the air conditioner . Dragging myself out of bed to the coffee pot showering the night before because I had heard there was storms coming in . I grabbed my cup of coffee setting out two more mugs for my kids when they woke. Ahh even when it’s humid out coffee still taste good. The air conditioners in the bedroom helped to keep it cool in the rest of the house since it’s raining , when the sun comes back out they won’t, luckily our air conditioner I ordered for our living room and kitchen area came in . My son is off picking it up and running some errands he had . When he gets home will put the air conditioner in.
The day has been a mixture of down pours and moments of sun peaking out a good recipe for thunderstorms later this evening. As you see Miss Abigail is looking happy….. NOT (hahaha) she doesn’t like rainy days. Did a few things around the house , took it slow. Watching one of my shows for a bit before I get dinner going. I’m thing spaghetti and meatballs sounds good. I guess I should get it started before I watch another episode of one of my childhood shows that just fills me with comfort and the beautiful days of the past . Okay that’s for another time and post . 🙂
It’s a beautiful Saturday morning the sun is shining the sky is so blue not a cloud in sight…the slight breeze keeps it cool a perfect morning enjoying my coffee outside . The birds are happily making their way from one tree to another.
My hubby and I enjoyed dinner out last night. Since my son was working and asked if we were going into town because at first we were thinking of just grabbing a pizza, we brought him his food he had made then just decided to stay and eat . Happy we did….We both ordered the baked Macaroni and cheese Mine had barque pulled pork on top and my hubby had the honey mustard chicken on top of his . We could not finish it the portion was such a good size and it was filling at that. I have come to like it there because you can sit in a booth or table or at the bar which in my case I cannot because being that I’m 4’11 the bar stools are so high I am not climbing up on them I would look like a little kid at an ice cream shop climbing up on one (hahaha) yes my kids agree. Any way we can sit at the booth as long as we want my hubby enjoying his beer and I a lemonade . I’m not much of a drinker anymore . Coffee is my poison🙂 we can chat watch tv since there is many all around . Just enjoy. On our way home my hubby wanted a coffee so we went thru the drive- thru and grabbed coffee it was 6:30 way past my time of having a coffee that I knew would keep me up I figured why not it’s the weekend. So we enjoyed . Once home we settled and watched tv until my daughter arrived home from her day at work and left with her boyfriend , my son worked till 10:30 and arriving home at 11 to tell us as we now were settled in bed yes my hubby with the tv on and I grabbing my neglected book . Was letting us know a friend was in town so a bunch of them were going to get together for a bit . When I put my book down at 12:30 he was still out . I woke at 7 to this beautiful day . Amazed even with that coffee I had I fell asleep pretty easy and did get through a lot of my book. My son came home couldn’t say what time as when we woke at 7 he had just headed out the door to take a long run with a friend . And then work for him this afternoon. My daughter is still down in her place Miss Abigail must be sleeping with her . Since she has disappeared once again after coming up for her treat .. she could hear me getting my coffee, this cat doesn’t miss a thing. I guess it’s time to finish my coffee and get off the deck so my hubby can start working on painting them . I will eventually settle under a tree in the shade with my book🙂.
It’s a Tuesday windy cool morning and yes a quiet one if you would call it that ..with the sound of the wind banging against the house.. Miss Abigail running around the house non stop. And I actually having to raise my voice at her for trying to get under the couch covers to scratch it. We were doing so good with that 🙄 now I think she is mad at me.
The wind blew all night after several times of our bedroom door slamming shut from it, my hubby propped the door open a bit . If we keep it shut it gets either too cold or too hot . After it being in the 80’s and humid it became really chilly and even though the sun is out it’s cold . Ahh Miss Abigail has calmed down and laying in her chair . I know she needs to have the time to run and act crazy but not on the couch.. Everyone has gone to work early . And I will just do things around here and that needs to be done. I have finally finished the book The Road . Hmm ..after all that and this is the ending ? Was my thought last night ,then I woke up saw the book sitting on my bedside table and then realized the ending and why what happens did. Still yes thinking and why after all that ? But then realizing the moral of the story made sense. Now I wait for my next book to come in the mail . It says delivery is today so I’m crossing my fingers. As the wind blows my day needs to the pedal from my tree decorating my deck actually pretty🙂 get started .
