My Weekend..

Good morning after a beautiful sunny warm weekend we are now in the 50’s and rain coming in. It seems to be the pattern. The weekend went better then I predicted. Once the family arrived and our gathering got started it was full of a lot of laughter ,talking, music and just plain fun 🙂 I think I just want everything and everyone to be good and happy. Something I need to just let go and just be… some habits are hard to break . I will keep on trying tho.  Today back to the norm. hubby back to work as well as my son will be this afternoon. My daughter has the day off so we will get out together and grab somethings needed for supper tonight. Then settle in to reading more of my new book … haven’t had much time to read since I received it. For now I will leave you with pic’s of my weekend and finish my coffee so I can get this day started. 🙂

Taking in the sun..

It’s a sunny warm day . Shall I add quiet into it? it’s always how it is..enjoying sometime on the deck taking in the beautiful sun. After the oddest thing this morning .. I’m still laughing about it. Telling my daughter about it as she enjoyed her morning coffee with me before she went to work .I had her Keeling over in laughter. Let me start with if you read my past posts I have stated, posted photos of the wild turkeys in my yard. Well this Spring there has.. is an abundance of them roaming throughout our woods, the front and back yard. Every morning sometimes in the after noon but for the most part morning and evening. Anyways so I came out of the shower wrapping myself in a towel and straight ahead of me there is a small window that faces the back of the house into the woods so no one is going to see me plus the screen is tinted so it makes it look just dark looking in ..well I look out and there looking in at a little distance has their neck stretched out and so I’m basically eye to eye with a turkey 🙄 now he can’t see me (hahaha) not worried but it’s the fact it’s staring straight at me . I think it heard the shower running. I just shook my head and called out to it …what are you looking at ? And the thing just walked away . My daughter as I’m telling her said well I wondered who you were talking to I did hear you say something and I knew it wasn’t me you were talking to because you never knew I was upstairs. What do you know as I’m sitting out here it’s 5:30 in the evening. Yes started writing this earlier when the sun was shining and it was warm but now the clouds are moving in blocking the sun a bit making it a little cool out . I’ve had to keep stopping to write this between phone calls , my son coming home asking me questions my daughter texting me, and then my hubby coming home talking as well . Not quiet any more. 🙂 And as I’m sitting here the turkeys have made their way back into our yard taking their evening stroll through . And not caring that I’m sitting out here. Crazy birds.

Tuesday out!

It was a Tuesday out and about with my daughter . The first part of it was spent at a doctors appointment that I knew would end up with different opinions ..I won’t even get started.. .but was happily worth it after enjoying lunch out with my daughter at Panera’s ,being once again a chilly day ,a cup of cheddar broccoli soup and grilled cheese tasted so good. Then followed it with a white chocolate Frappuccino with two pumps of raspberry in it from Starbucks . Only get them every so many months if that. It was a perfect treat .It was nice to catch up with my daughter talking about random things and laughing and being silly especially when we went to get her studded tires off and new tires needing to be on to pass inspection … yes another stop we needed to do . But that was more fun then my appointment. At the tire place it was so busy and people looked angry , impatient and some were sleeping in the leather chairs well fake leather but so comfy it felt like we were in a movie theater ,all in a row the chairs were with two screen TVs one with sports playing and one showing our last name and what bay her car was in , the estimated time of how long and oh a third screen showing the guys working on the cars . So we could see them changing her tires . Very interesting. I believe we sat there an hour laughing to ourselves while we texted back and forth to one another so we wouldn’t disturb the people around us … because everyone was so quiet . Either on their phones, reading, or concentrating on the screens and yes sleeping as I stated. Then my phone rang with my son appearing on the screen , I answered with such a whispering voice my son was like whispering back to me asking why I was whispering I told him and he was like oh okayyyy… 😂 I must say the hour went by quick . And my daughter was satisfied . I do not understand why everyone or for the most part a good amount of them looking so miserable. We were all their for the same thing tires that’s all they do. And it was quick. After that we headed for home , where leftovers for supper would be what I would be preparing. It’s amazing that it’s already going on 8 at night. Doesn’t seem possible. Well time to read some blogs and then my book . Have a great night everyone.🙂

Long day of nothing..

It’s midnight so I’m posting late and very short … it was a beautiful relaxing weekend . Saturday spent with our family at their house enjoying good food , drinks and card games. And a lot of laughs. Sunday was a day of hanging around the house .. lazy is good. So that’s how it was spent . It’s Monday and a day of nothing . Except an enjoyable ride to Starbucks with my daughter then a quiet evening chatting away with her while hubby slept after work .. not felling that great. My son had a class he took tonight two hours away so staying with a friend in his college dorm that is near by so he didn’t have to travel home at 10 tonight . Yes so I should be sleeping. I think the full moon is keeping me awake …But time to try . Hope everyone had a great Monday. Goodnight. Oh and the sunset was so beautiful this evening had to post! Okay now going to bed🙂

Coffee Time.

By now you must have realize my daughter and I love our coffee and love spending time going to get coffee and enjoy our coffee with good conversations and a lot of laughs. So this week instead of driving forty minutes to Starbucks …which my daughter and I love . We decided to go local very local like minutes away from our house so I’m sure or maybe not thinking why drive forty mins when you can drive only several minutes for coffee? I’ll answer anyways , because our local coffee is very expensive but then when you really come down to it , for a forty minute drive using up gas for a dollar less specialty coffee it’s worth paying that dollar more coffee at the local and using less gas unless there is other places we need to go . Their holiday coffees we found out are delicious and use more natural ingredients . My daughter and I ordered a Peppermint Mocha hot coffee with chocolate flavor cream on top and then they drizzled chocolate syrup over it and sprinkled pieces of candy cane over it . It was so delicious! And the coffee shop is so cozy . The bakery goods are delicious and many of but the coffee alone is just enough for us. Will defiantly be going back .

Going away family party..

Today turned out to be a bittersweet family going away party for my son . After tackling the busy drive of leaf peepers everywhere making driving some what crazy with my daughter , treating ourselves to a mocha ice coffee being that we were a bit early helped ,coffee makes everything better well almost everything (haha) picking up the over abundance of Chinese takeout for the party then arriving home with the help of my son setting the food out for everyone to dig in . As we enjoyed the food the younger cousins went in and out to the bonfire my husband and brother-in-law had going . After we all went out and enjoyed a lot of laughs around the fire… the guys decided to throw around the football . It was a easy going day and memories for my son to take with him for the 6 months he will be away . It’s unbelievable how it’s already 9:30 at night … now the days will fly by . .. and it will be Wed early morning driving my son to the local base where he will be leaving from . He’s ready but when family started to leave and hugged him and tears in families eyes I believe I saw something of sadness in my sons eyes as well . As much as my son plays such a tough guy he has a very big heart that only a few and lucky ones get to see . I m one of the luck ones that have and I know he will miss us . I know we will all miss him too . 😥 that being said I’m going to now get ready for bed say my prayers and get some sleep.

Movie Night!

It was another scorcher of a day and looking the same for tomorrow… hubby went to work and the kids and I slept in a bit longer then usual .. then dragging ourself out of of bed one by one we proceeded with our day. As the day drifted into evening my daughter at work still and the nightly news depressing as usual .. my son decided he wanted to watch a movie so he found Marvel Guardians of the galaxy . I’m not usually fond of those kind of movies but this one was really good it was funny , suspense, action and it was a good change . This was fun and a different pace . So happy he suggested it . Now it’s late and my hubby and son are sleeping, my daughter is with her boyfriend now and I am thinking I will get some sleep a bit earlier tonight. So goodnight everyone. If you get a chance to watch it. I recommend it.
