the fan is humming it’s the only sound breaking through the quietness in the house tonight my hubby and his fan… the bedroom is darker then usual no light from the moon ,clouds moving in to bring some rain. My daughter is out with a friend and my son is in bed settling his mind down with a hot cup of night time tea . Hubby is fast asleep and I am not 🙂 always… I was just reflecting on the little things I guess when my phone went off a minute ago because my daughter texted me a heart because earlier before she left work she told me she was going to be a bit later she sent me a heart so I sent one back but I guess she was just seeing it and even though she is out with her friend she sent me one back still ❤️ so it got me thinking of how her and I had this special goodnight saying she was the one who thought of it ,it was long and she would say it first then I would repeat it back with her name and it went on for yrs and I always wondered when she would grow out of it . Well it took a class trip in Elementary school that she went on for a week . She was worried she wouldn’t be able to say it so I told her when your all settled in and your ready to fall asleep if you think about it say it to your self your part and when I go to bed I will say my part ….. she. Liked that idea , honestly I do not know if she ever said it to herself that whole week . I never asked because when she came home she never ask to say it just said good night … hmm funny what you can remember and still can tug at your heart… my son was more simple it was ,have sweet dreams then a hug .. hmm how I miss all those moments ..at the time it was just second nature what we did . Now its missing memories .. oh the simple things we can take for granted but then when time passed it’s really becomes a big thing and means everything. So tonight when I say my prayers as I drift off to sleep tonight I will make sure to add a thank you to god for all these simple blessings I believe I have thanked him for all these blessing but I think I need to thank him again especially about the little things . ❤️
The day went by quietly and calm it was snowing and then rain for most part of the day . Getting things done around the house was easy and then I had time to adult color which I have not done in awhile. That was relaxing. hubby came home and we had supper then cleaned up the kitchen and settled in for our shows . There is a show that came back after 30 years and yes it’s about my time my era and I actually enjoy it the humor it’s funny nothing to take serious just laugh forget about the chaotic world we live in at the moment. A lot of people like a lot do not but that’s fine we do So my hubby and I watched it and yes laughed and now we are settled in bed Tv’s off house is quiet my kids have settled in also for the night . Yes the fan is quietly humming🙂 I wasn’t ready to sleep so I decided to go on to my Twitter …..such a bad idea especially before bed , . I usually love twitter and respect people’s opinions but found it pretty rude tonight .. really knock a show so bad that it’s hurtful . Say nasty things over something as simple as a tv show. I’m not going to get into the politicalpart of it because there shouldn’t be it’s just a show explaining how things use to be back in the day and yes it’s different harsh parents where not afraid to discipline their child for the fear the children would not like them ….(not perfect family) come one what teenager doesn’t get mad at their parents if you say not yours then your lucky and one of the many. Any how that’s one of the reasons it’s not liked also but it was just the hurtful comments the way people expressed harshly and the show was and not up to their standards hmmm something is wrong here we have kids and yes it’s trended on Twitter and any other social media site …our generation eating tide pods and if that’s not bad enough now the new thing is snorting condoms then they pull it out of their mouth , yes you read that right .. yes nasty , why no one knows . Hmm for the fun of it yes our standards , maybe we should stop with our opinion about oh what’s right what’s wrong on tv and watch what our kids are doing . Really do we have a right to be so hurtful and judgmental over something so little as a show and complaining over social media okay yes we do but hmm somethings wrong here when our kids could be getting seriously hurt or killed by the latest ridiculous new trend and believe me I know how bad it is I have a friend who’s a nurse and if this gets stuck in their nasals the procedure is nasty and sadly lucky if they survive .. I’m shaking my head … where did society go wrong ? Our priorities are so backwards yes judge a show call someone nasty name but all the while your kid could be doing one of these new trends ok if you don’t have kids okay then you live in a society where we do this but judge on the things that are so meaningless. hmm tell me who’s right who’s wrong matters so much now. Sadly I’m thinking I need to to stop looking at Twitter enjoy my shows laugh at them enjoy some books , adult color do my writing and laugh and chat and yes enjoy my family more . Let the rest of the word tweet away. And with that said yes only my opinion 😦 Good Night Everyone 🙂
It’s night time .. hubby’s sleeping sons sleeping , my daughter and Miss Abigail are settled down in their place. I’m awake at the moment . Was strolling through my blog followers reading your posts and enjoying them . I like doing this at night when it’s quiet and the TV is off so I can focus my full attention on them . It’s hard when my hubby is awake and has a show on and he’s saying oh look at that or did you see that ? Yeah he means well. But it’s hard to concentrate . I really need to get him to read a book but then you can’t get someone to do something they do not like . He has never been a reader well the local newspaper yes .
My world is reading , writing and yes my shows and news. But at night is more peaceful to write with the soft sound of the fan humming or the distant whistle of the trains going by , some nights when the windows are open you can hear an owl , you wouldn’t think the sound is creepy but it is 🙂 I love nights it’s my comfort zone .. well I read my posts and time for some sleep , let the humming of the fan drift me off to sleep.
Oh how I love the laughter! I believe there is 6 teenagers crammed in my sons room ones a girl but all good her brothers here too her brother is my sons good track buddy who is now in his 2nd yr of college and his sister is graduating with my son. they all showed up to ransack my kitchen making food and to hang out . Ahh love nights like this as long and little it lasts I’ll take it. Basically when the food runs out 🙂 my hubby and I are in the living room watching our shows . I know as much as my son was tired and wanted to rest for his race tomorrow I think he is happy that their all here . We are too 🙂 it’s a nice Friday night.
The kitchen table .. is not just for breakfast , lunch and dinner , it’s a place for endless nights of doing homework. it’s the best place in house to enjoy a hot cup of your favorite coffee ..tea or whatever your liking is. As you enjoy a simple chat before heading out to start your day . Or a quiet moment to talk over a bad day . For me it’s the place where many moments memories are made good or bad but especially the good , the kitchen table holds on to all our laughing silly or deep conversations about life . It has heard many happy birthday songs and held many cakes of all occasions to enjoy.It hears our dreams as we sit with our cups of coffee warming our hand s and chatting about those dreams we want or we should of persude . The kitchen table is like an old friend that is always there to sit around to comfort our so many thoughts and yes that what I feel as I know it’s my favorite place in the house . The conversations get less and less as we grow and sometimes as I’m sitting here yes with my coffee and staring out my window I can hear the laughing see the tears that have been shed here . .. and I notice a slight carve into the old tattered wood where my kids I couldn’t say which one 🙂 where there’s a pencil marking when I may not have been looking someone tried carving their name or a marker stain and I smile thinking oh this table hasn’t heard the last of the laughter or deep conversations they’ll be more but of a different older time when they come home .. deeper voices .. more confident grown adults looking to enjoy a cup of coffee and a nice conversation.❤️
it’s Sunday night and we are All home, yes I emphasized all because it’s a rare occurrence that we are all home at night early and settled in. The reason I posted this photo is in my posts I sometimes state that I can hear the whistle of a train in the distance when all is quiet as I’m trying to sleep , this is the train tracks of that or those trains .. they sit about a mile away but you can hear the trains for miles as it echos up the valley . I love the look of them because they just seem endless . Always loved to sit close by as a teenager and write in my journal especially around Fall time a cozy but an eerie feeling .
Same as sitting in an abandon covered bridge in my town etched with names of all the teenage kids I will admit my name is their as well that would hangout or shield them self’s from rain when being with friends ..what you did living in a small town in the country. It was always eerie how the wind would blow through the old bridge making it creak.. just like the eerie sound of that train whistle .. at the moment I can’t hear it at that matter I can’t hear anything but 80″s music coming from the TV because my hubby is reliving his youth for the moment hahaha, my hubby roaming through channels and found it . I guess he’s had enough thank goodness now it’s time to shut down the tv and computer and get some sleep and maybe I will hear that lonely sound of the train whistle after all..
ahhh beautiful and mild !
