This afternoon my daughter and I ventured out when we left the house it was down pouring. But knowing we were headed for our coffee and lattes it was perfect weather. Yes that’s what we do …we love our lattes. Starbucks had their pumpkin spice flavor out so we enjoyed them while we chatted in the parking lot where we were going to shop ,but coffee first always a given with us . And Starbucks pumpkin spice is the best! After we realized it was a holiday and all the college kids would be shopping. We managed to get through the crowded store and get the things we were looking for. The store was pretty much turned upside down by the college students. All in all it was a nice day spent with my daughter and when we walked out of the store the rain had stopped and the sun peaked out from the clouds . It was so beautiful to see. It’s a quiet rainy night now , yes the rain has decided to make its presence known again. The sound of the rain is calming though and I’m feeling happier ,chatted with my son earlier and he’s happy settling in with a routine. He has one more day until classes starts and is happily keeping himself busy. Now it’s my turn . As of tomorrow I will start my routine . And on the top of my list is spend more time with friends ! Get out more , and yes take care of me . 🙂
The cake we shared , yes a lot of pink but my son did say for me to pick the colors.. pink for me ,blue for him..,It’s Sunday at 9:00 at night. Mine and my sons birthday weekend has come to an end .. Saturday on mine we went out for dinner , had a lot of laughs good food , nice and simple my family gave me some really nice gifts I loved them but most important love my family more. It was nice to have both of my kids present . A rarity these days. Then today was my son birthday we celebrated his day with extend family, pizza and cake and ice cream and a fire in the fire pit. After many hours enjoying, family left and we cleaned up and settled in for the routine of the new week ahead. Over and over family members asked how does it feel to be 50?…hmm what kind of a question to ask.. I really couldn’t answer it . One in my mind I feel more like 20 but my body feels much older. Honestly I really do not know if I will ever wrap my mind around it. My son was quiet . He usually loves his birthday. Oh he is so humble .. He acts so much older then 19. I must say he has said a lot of I love you’s to me this weekend. I wonder if he feels my vibe of me not liking this age of mine… even though I tried to stay upbeat about it. Now all have settled in bed early my hubby needed to be up at 4 for work and my son heading to the gym early in the morning . My daughter settling down in her place with Miss Abigail and a friend. I’m just sitting in the living room been off and on reading my book. Taking a break for a moment to figure out what I have read. This Stephen King book has so many twists to it . I haven’t gave up on it yet…Kind of like a fly being drawn to a spider web . (Haha ) hesitant to finish it but your drawn to it to see where this story ends. Stephen King has a way of doing that. It’s nice any way even if I’m not totally into it . The quietness is welcoming. I feel exhausted but emotionally exhausted. Happy this weekend of celebration is over . My day not my sons.
Now on to a new week . Not much planned it will be relaxed. Monday I will spend the day with my daughter . But other then that not much planned. Fine with me tho. I like easy weeks. Well time to read a bit more until I call it a night. 🙂
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.
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.🙂
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🙂
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 .
