Saturday morning waking early after some really weird dreams.. if only could remember them. dragging myself out from under the warm cozy covers I jumped in the shower then to the kitchen where Miss Abigail was waiting. I wouldn’t say patiently for her morning treat, that I have happened to have started as a bad habit because if I do not grab it fast enough while entering the kitchen her meowing will drive you crazy… and every morning I say to her “why are you not downstairs with your mama .. I grab my coffee and flick through the tv channels nothing is on even the news this morning is boring. So I keep on going through the channels and come upon a cartoon that my son loved and had just said the other day after I found a GIF to send him which was the character of this cartoon .. how much he missed it and that time… oh the GIF’s are addicting but so much fun when you can’t find the right word to explain something to someone. Anyways its Sponge Bob squarepants. The strangest cartoon ever but has managed to stay around for many yrs. and yes a sponge he is 🙄 as I’m enjoying my coffee and waiting for the washer to stop .. yes never ending always laundry to do.. I look away from the tv to check my phone that is going off , when I look back up towards the tv and I see thisI swear she out to get me. 🙄 I am also thinking she doesn’t like the show very much as well. Going to be a long day with this girl… I guess time to put the wet close into the dryer .. and make a food shopping list.
A cold snowy day and my mood is as dreary as the weather… sadly it’s been a long week and going into a second one at that. Happy my daughter is feeling better , goes back to work tomorrow after being out sick for a week. My hubby is off and on feeling ill . So he’s been resting on the couch since he got home from work . Missing my son so much today , I think feeling the way I do it emphasis him being away so long.. chatting with him off and on tonight , he stated that a lot of people are sick on the base and who are sick have been for two weeks..ughh so he said he isn’t surprised I’m still not feeling 100 percent. It’s 8 at night and the snow is still coming down. I’m thinking my bed is calling to me soon where it’s warm . .. and hopefully my attitude changes as well . Sorry for not a very enlightening post . This winter is getting to me. I’m feeling a bit cabin fever. … sigh.. well I guess I will get comfortable and settle with my hubby. and I’m sure Miss Abigail who is in her favorite chair upstairs will most likely find her way into our room scratching at the bed and jumping on my hubby while he sleeps. .. will see .
Day 4 of still down… for a bit last night I thought I kicked it out of me , and though finally I could get some sleep. NOT! Wide awake because I have been resting so much just watching TVs so just been sitting around during the day . Then the body aches came back and the night was a long one . Woke feeling lousy if I could of slept probably would of been better this morning. .. not helping that it was a mild day and now dropping and the winds have picked up so here we go again with the change of the weather. Today my daughter laid on the couch still not feeling good as well. So as we sipped cups of tea we watched a movie a friend of hers gave her to watch. Must say so different then I thought and the twists in this movie where so many , just when you thought you figured it out ..no another twist came along. . So worth a watch . Now it’s evening and the wind is roaring banging against the house at the moment .I believe Miss Abigail is down with her mom . Earlier she sat in front of me starring at me , nothing like getting starred down by a cat🙄 I had to send a pic to my daughter who was in shock .. she told me I could send her down . I think she went down after on her own. Nooo she’s back! Hahaha. Well I guess it’s time to now try settling in bed…see if I can get into a book …
It’s Thursday night . The last 3 days it’s been the bare minimum of cleaning and cooking luckily the house is good and it’s been light suppers , hubby making his own meals a couple of nights. Still down .. so it’s been a lot of watching tv shows drinking lots of tea which seems to be the one thing that taste good. Tried to read but couldn’t focus. So gave that up. And hubby and I have been in bed watching tv for hours now . As Miss Abigail is wanting to drive us crazy .. my daughter is home still recuperating herself but her cat seems to want to bother my hubby and I . In the pic you can see she is sitting on our bed rail in front of our tv view I think she is trying to tell us something… when she finally jumped down she was going after the shades ughh . I know it’s not a fool moon tonight. I swear she just loves to bother us. Well I guess I will try to get some sleep in a bit my son has been chatting off and on through texting . So as soon as he is off in 5mins I’ll try. Have a good night everyone.
Woke early to a bird who kept pecking at the slider in the kitchen. This happened last yr as well.. when the sun hits the slider window it must send a shadow that attracts this bird all I know it had Miss Abigail hiding by the living room chair . She didn’t want nothing to do with it.as scared as she was I was annoyed .. ugh I wanted to cry after not sleeping well … getting a cold ugh .., I think I caught what my daughter had . Plus having the temps go from single digits last week to the last several days near the 60’s is not helping . So it was a very laid back day relaxing watching my shows . Making a light supper. And now trying to adult color but really not into it . So I will just relax some more watch the tv hopefully can sleep if the coughing lets me . Thankfully nothing needing to be done tomorrow for errands If I can’t sleep. Time to settle a bit earlier tonight .
It’s Tues feels like a Monday ,3 day holiday weekend has come and gone. Now back to the routine, Hubby at work and my daughter too. My son back to his classes so back to getting A text after 6 in the evening off and on until 9. And I just made stuff shells that are baking as the washing machine is rumbling through out the house. I did some dusting. And my daughter is grabbing the things I needed at the store when she gets out of work . Thinking it wouldn’t be a great idea to risk slipping on some ice with my hip , since the temps are now in the 20’s but the ice is here and there. Tomorrow I will get to the post office and mail my sons book. Ready for Spring….🙂 but for now I will just enjoy my reading and adult coloring. I know I have plenty of books to get through. It’s going on 3 already I guess I kept busy today … stuff shells smell delicious. And the house is clean and warm can’t complain… plus the sun is shining . Miss Abigail has tucked herself away in one of the bedrooms where the sun is shining in more then the others feeling the suns warmth , I believe she will stay that way until the sun goes down. No coffee this afternoon or tea just yet. Water is a good thing (hahaha) too much coffee and a full moon hmm …doesn’t mix , sounds strange but true . Had too much caffeine then with the full moon ..Sleep was hard to come by last night. So drinking my water then after when it starts to feel a bit cooler in the house I will have a nice hot cup of decafe Tea. Time to check my shells and the washing machine has stopped. Have a good day everyone!
So here we are , into January Christmas is a distant memory already. BUT .. my memory still holds on to the sound of the car pulling into the driveway at every awakening hour but no loud music I’ve just realized as I’m thinking about it . Hmm my Son didn’t have his music blaring out of the car. That changed. Now the endless back door opening ..closing with the clunking sounds of shoes being taken of as the razzing of my sons friends continued. Now replaced to the door staying shut more and Miss Abigail looking at it and waiting… and wondering when he will walk in. My husband and I dropped my son off at the airport dressed all in his camo with his duffle bag swung over his shoulder as he walked away after the sad good bye hugs . I just watched in awe to the man . soldier he’s become disappearing out of sight into the building . .. where did that time go of that little blond boy holding on to my hand as we walked into preschool on his first day looking up at me with those big blue eyes questioning me to let him go and run with the other kids. …He is safe on base arrived in time for chow so that was the last time I heard from him happy he was eating since he hadn’t ate much when he left ,never does when he has to fly . So that was last night (Wed ) and then he stated he had to go told me they were taking their phones , so he told me he loved me and was off. Two months of classes he has for his MOS job . With that said the house is quiet and dark at night once my hubby and I and my daughter when she is home settle in for the night , no outside light shining into the kitchen on for him when he would arrive home ,no waiting to hear him quietly walk in. But that will change once he’s back or not because then life will settle in even more ..work , Army and a bit more grownup after being away a second time.
Now back to what I began to say it’s January, usually a dreaded long month for me .. never liked This month . Right now it’s not bothering me as it usually does which is surprising for a change. My hubby goes back to work on Monday and my routine of my own will begin if you want to call it that … my usual get up shower enjoy my coffee with news then do somethings around the house and then run into town to collect the mail . Will see if my son will eventually write or if it will be text messages instead. Then it’s a library run and back home to enjoy my daytime shows and think of something for supper . Routine is good. Changes throughout the years but still a routine. I’m must say I have things to keep myself busy besides the have to’s but the enjoyable things. My blog , starting a journal , reading , and most of all my adult coloring . Thankfully my kids got me a new beautiful adult coloring book with a beautiful set of colored pencils so that has been keeping me busy at night while my hubby and I watch our tv shows. Each day the days stay a little bit longer . So that is nice . I’m happy to have things to keep me busy . Tonight I must say the sunset was so beautiful the first beautiful one I’ve seen since 2019 arrived.
