Crazy November… today it’s 53 out which for us is a warm day ,the house is quiet but not my daughter and I filling the quiet house-with some laughter being silly and it’s not like we are doing anything special just having a mother daughter moment . Love!!
It’s a cold night one of the coldest since Fall started . Nice and toasty under my electric blanket with my sleeping husband.. already long days early mornings for him with work this week ,.. yes I have it on 🙂 it’s one of those nights where everyone is home and settled in my daughters friend is over so thier content down in her place with Miss Abigail ,happy there not out for once and my son is already sleeping . It’s a nice change from the comings and goings half the night. My husband and I watched our favorite Thursday night TV shows love the come back of Will and Grace it’s so funny it’s such a great pick me up show . Laughter is good. So now TV is off and once again no moon so the room is dark but that is okay it’s nice it will make for a good sleeping night. Tomorrow is under the lights Football game so we will go and watch our son play. Then a busy work weekend for him and his Senior pictures taken as well . I think my hubby and I will go get some pumpkins for carving and apples for some fresh apple pie and a pumpkin spice latte stop as well that is the best part 🙂 and yes food shopping will have to be done always need that chore done not one of my favorite things to do I hope I can get some good photos up of the foliage in my part of the world , it’s now starting to look beautiful it’s just where you go so yes hopefully this weekend I will post some, well my eyes are getting heavy so time to get some sleep . Sweet dreams everyone.
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.
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 .
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.
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 🙂 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 🙂 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 🙂 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 🙂 all though this I would not mind is Laundry having to be done 😦 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 !!!
