Nothing like a Town Fair..

 This is the beautiful sight of the full moon shining it’s amazing light over the Roundhouse at our Town Fair as we where leaving tonight. So happy my husband and I decided to go , we always went for the kids but now they can go on thier own or not but they where both there arriving at different times my daughter with her friends and my son headed to his booth he was working at selling apple pies for his Senior yr. The night started off with my husband and  I walking down the midway looking at one  thing or another and then looking at one another with smirks  on our faces like okay now what do we do … it’s been the first time we entered this fair without kids in 20 years yes unbelievable it was just so strang but we stuck with it and stayed and we did meet up with my daughter and her friend talked to my sons friends and saw my older sister and her family that I do not get much time with, with her busy schedule and we found that we both where feeling the same way and how life has changed so much ,we had a nice talk and then went on with our families then we ran into my husbands uncle and listen to the band that was playingand shared some laughter while  enjoying my slice of a very delicious apple pie with ice cream yes from my sons booth ūüôā it was such a different but nice new experience at the fair this year . I need to remember this that things are changing and changing with them can be good  and what  choice do we have anyways it’s the way it is and look I would of missed this beautiful sight.

Photo Monday ….

I’m late for posting my photo , it’s been a day of cleaning up after a long weekend of July Birthday celebrations for my son and I . Beautiful cakes and a beautiful sunset as well can’t beat that I wish I had taken a photo of the cake my daughter had gave me it had pink roses on it and was so yummy. We had a bonfire in our pit that went for two days and lots of chatting and laughter . Oh and the the adults and kids played cornhole ever heard of it ?a lot of fun and challenging. So I hope you enjoy our cakes my daughters Birthday is next . August and yes she will have a cake too …have to make  her Birthday wish blowing out the candles. 

Summer Nights…

I’m laying in my bed the Windows wide open the warm summer night ¬†with a gentle breeze feels just ¬† right the light of the moon shadows the walls of my room .Down the hall ‘ in the next rooms the sound of the girls contagious laughter is comforting ..my daughter ¬†and her friend catching up on the days gossip. Love these moments for there short and less often So I take it in absorb it for those the¬† are moments I will remember when the house grows ¬†quieter with only the sound of the walls showing there age.this will be one more memory¬† I hold in my heart .

Moments…

As the sound on tain falls steadily ¬†on the roof my daughter and I enjoy a late night ¬†talk of laughter and just lfe as we ¬†enjoy the sweet taste of cake and glasses of milk it’s after midnight the rest of our family are fast asleep we just keep talking ¬†endlessly ¬†its nice not done this in a while this is the moment I cherish about motherhood these spontaneous moments of simpleness ¬†with my kids . My daughtmer ¬†and I have always been the ones to have a good conversation and moments of plain silllyness.whether its ¬†over cake a meal or a cup of coffee.Yes motherhood ¬†is a beautiful thing and as we decide its time to settle ¬†I realize its 1 in the morning ¬†its Mother ‘sDay beautiful ¬†start to it. Happy Mothers Day Moms.

 

Beautiful morning..

The Sun was so welcoming this morning after a cloudy day the day before . I couldn’t help myself to capture a picture on the way to school and yes my son was driving. It¬† was just so uplifting¬† It was well due needed the suns energy on me.. I have¬† been feeling so over whelmed lately with everything that has needed¬† to be done, paid etc…¬† that worrying as got the best of me which I do not like to let this¬† happen to often. I cannot wait for things to wined¬† down just a bit.I will ¬† take it day by day or at least try to. I know there still is ¬† the holidays to add in going to or try to take in stride¬† ….yes… do not get me wrong love the holidays I am just having a hard time getting into them¬† this year , much¬† .. much¬† harder when your kids are adults and teenagers so not the same …The magic of Santa is what I miss¬† the most especially this one memory¬† .¬† when¬† my kids where young. There Daycare use to give out these little packages of reindeer food which was oatmeal and other safe edible ingredients¬† if squirrels ate it¬† so Christmas eve before the kid’s would go to bed they would sprinkle it on the front yard¬† and Santa’s Reindeer would smell it and bring Santa to the house they did know after they did this they had to go to bed and they did hahaha ¬† but it¬† was the look¬† their faces how they would light up as they sprinkled it well my son liked to throw it¬† ūüôā¬† my daughter was so dainty.. she would sprinkle it just so ..oh¬† how miss those moments.¬†¬† I am happy we have those memories to look back on. I have now replaced it in which Is what we should¬† think more of is¬† counting our blessings , I always have but now it’s more meaningful when your kids are old enough to share this meaning with you,, happy they know what is important¬† there¬† also finding even though holidays are coming life is busy for them¬† and they still have their responsibilities¬† how life changes in¬† one blink. Where did all those years go?….hmm a question I ask myself at least once a day ūüôā So I am trying to just walk sometimes it’s a crawl¬† through this new journey of life but I do know somethings that¬† have¬† not changed¬† is still having¬† our schedule maybe a bit different¬† no more writing in kid play dates¬† to¬† or kid parties . now writing in¬† driving time for my son, exam fees due. Sport meets to be at.. work drop offs¬† yeah I think it’s a bit busier in a¬† different¬† way, and no more little kids running around the house with their friends but my son and daughters girlfriend¬† and boyfriend coming over¬† loud music banging through my sons wall my son and his friends coming and going through my front door my daughter¬† having a girls night with drinks and movies yes their 21 and her friends stay over good thing she has a furnished basement . but I¬† must admit I like the noise and there chaos ūüôā with all this newness comes a little more quiet nights home with just my husband and then that’s¬† when we find Some time¬† for a¬† ride and enjoy a coffee or grab takeout and settle in with a¬† good movie and enjoy one another’s company that time has changed more then ever we forget how it use to be just him and I so do not forget this a very important thing to remember when it comes to this for all of you new parents.¬† There¬† is¬† hope some things that do¬† not change ūüôā all though this I would not mind¬† is Laundry having to be done ūüė¶¬† which my Son could do but mom does it better.hmmm good one on his part. lets not forget the rest of the housework ughhh …then dinners to¬† be made . yes¬† all the fun things. I must say I am happy today house work is done supper is ready to be made when time the comes and I actually enjoyed my coffee and news this morning I believe it was the sun yes going to hold on to that thought. and so now today is pretty much mine and my pups¬† yes my loyal friend. so I will wait for my favorite show¬† do some adult coloring and yes tweet love twitter… tomorrow will be another day oh yes …but today¬† It’s a me¬† day !!!

This tattered Swing didn’t¬† always look this way it has had many summer and fall play ,¬† my son when he was 5 could swing for hours if I¬† couldn’t find him right off I knew if I looked down where the swing was there he was swinging as high as he could go and smiling either looking at the big blue sky or straight ahead with a big smile cross his face or my daughter standing on it swaying and giggling while her friends as they twisted¬† it around and around then let go as she spun holding on tight and enjoying the ride. that simple swing brought so many hours of enjoyment to them.Now it sits¬† lonely most of the time only swings if the wind blows or if my son sits on¬† it as he waits for his friends¬† to show .¬† It’s a funny thing the kid’s have never questioned why we haven’t taken it down..I am happy for that because when I drive¬† down my driveway my eyes always focus on it and I think of all those summers and fall days of my children swinging and I can still hear their laughter the beautiful sound of childhood and then the sound of the rope as it rubbed on the tree as it swung back and forth and I hope when my kids drive by they have the same happy thoughts.20160428_160930-1.jpg
