Good Morning it’s gong on 3 weeks of raining off and on throughout the day so when it’s not raining it’s just plain cloudy and blah …sorry couldn’t find another way to describe it (hahaha) I did have a nice Monday . I went and did some errands with my daughter and she heard that our local chain coffee shop had Pumpkin flavor coffee out yes already .. so I broke down and had a pumpkin ice coffee with her it was nice to do our thing.. get coffee together and drive around , chat laugh, it’s been awhile so I do not feel bad on breaking down on my streak ,So worth it being with my girl .last night was spent settle in bed with another book , yes started another one . Also my husband had a great movie on Tombstone ! One of our favorite westerns . So a rainy night was okay …. now enjoying my morning coffee and breakfast then soon need to order a Birthday cake for my daughter for Saturday. I cannot believe our girl will be 23 , it’s so unbelievable .. my daughter is such a simple, quiet, sensitive warm person. She also is very strong in her believes and stubborn . She does not want a big celebration just a quiet day with a lunch out or ordered in and a cake with family then she will spend the rest of her day with her boyfriend . She is so different then my son..she doesn’t like attention on her unlike him . My kids are such opposites and I love that about them they are who they are. I have the best of both worlds .. it would be boring if they were alike . 🙂 always something new going on between them. Yes over the years I have felt like I have been running in two different directions raising them and yes I actually have. But wouldn’t change it for the world. I guess it’s time to get this day going do what needs to be done. Have a good day everyone.
The evening started off as usual my hubby getting home from work and taking a run before the storms came in to shake off the stress of the work day. My son at his Tuesday night work out group and my daughter at work. Then there was Me .. holding down the fort and getting supper ready well leftovers last night After when everyone was home supper finished and cleaned up the thunder rolled in .My son asked if we wanted to watch a movie my son has been in a movie mode lately I’m thinking it’s his way of distracting his thinking mind and tired body so I said yes even though my book was on my lap ready to finish ..my hubby opted out this time to relax in bed for an early work morning. My daughter came home about 15 minutes into it and decided to watch with us . My son chose one of the Thor movies I’m not much of a Thor fan but the guy who plays him I love ! (Hahaha) it was such a relaxing fun night with both of my kids . I’m absorbing all this beautiful energy from them .
When they were younger we always watched movies together it was a Friday night thing after a long week of school and work , we would order pizza and settle in and watch movies .. then the rest of the weekend was theirs to do . Now it’s when or if they want to …few and far between. So I take it while I can . ❤️
When you come home and drive into your driveway and you have the radio up with one of your favorite songs playing and you see this ! The music the sound of the car didn’t even phase them , they just went along doing what they do . When I got out of the car they just looked at me not scared at all . I sad hi guys thinking they would run and no they didn’t . I guess I can talk to the turkeys now as well (hahaha) just love country living.
After a bad day the day before, today was much better cooler morning , I got to enjoy my morning coffee a bit longer after a late night of catching up on episodes of sharp objects on HBO .. mind blowing . Then the usual a pick up here and there around the house not much to clean up. Then I enjoyed sometime outside before the humidity slowly creeped in. Decided to run some errands with my daughter then it was back home time for supper everyone did their own thing light supper it was. My son was feeling better after the allergy reaction to the new cat that will be missed dearly but just wasn’t going to workout with Miss Abigail being a bully as well. My son has decided to wait until he gets back from basic training in March being that he realized how fast Oct would be here when he leaves for Basic. He’s thinking a dog ,we think the cat will still probably not like it at first but will adapt to it better and my son won’t be effected allergy wise.
This evening my other half and I stayed inside no sitting out to warm and buggy plus my other half had had enough of the outdoors after working in it all day. So we watched the nightly news and then I grabbed my book as he laid on the couch with his phone. I was rocking in my favorite chair as I read he remarked how he couldn’t believe how I could rock and read at the same time he said it’s always amazed him and made him feel a bit queasy watching me ( hahaha) the funny thing is as I read on ..the book was getting better and better and the faster I rocked ( hahaha) he then remarked how my face expression showed how much I was into it , I laughed and said well it’s so good I can’t read it fast enough. We did earlier put a sm load of wash in and the washer had stopped he said keep reading I got this your enjoying yourself . I think he new how hard it was the day before having to deal with the whole animal scene and bringing the poor thing back to the shelter. It did break my heart. … as I read my husband said look only 8:30 and it’s totally dark already .. so it begins the days getting shorter it just seems earlier this year summer in not over until my daughters birthday the middle of Aug then I will be ready for the change of season . I have plenty of books ,just feel bad when I’m reading and my other half is just laying there on his phone I wish he would read . But not going to happen .. soon football will be on . I know shouldn’t feel a bit guilty but I do at times because once I get into a book my attention is only on that . Well I just looked at the time it’s late time to get some sleep. So good night everyone.
It’s 8:00 on a Friday night, My kids are both home and settled in both tired.. My other half and I are also settled in ,the house is quiet and dark … no Tv at the moment ,only the sound that is breaking though the quietness is the rumbling of thunder that feels like it’s going under the house and the closeness of the flashes of lightening that is a bit worry some but also a cozy feeling. It’s nice to have no tv on it’s peaceful.. It’s been a beautiful day despite the storms , my kids bought me a cake for my birthday and with my other half some gift”s and my other have also bought me a beautiful summer bouquet with some of my favorite flowers. roses in it. It was a nice simple birthday. My other have had to work so I spent my day with my two blessings .then we all sat down together and ate dinner and then enjoyed sone cake and laughter after though making a wish and blowing out the candles that is a have to I’ve alway make sure we do. As well as tomorrow when the extended family will come to celebrate my sons 18th birthday. With more cake and pizza that will go home with people after🙂 then on Sunday we may welcome a new edition to our family .. my son found a two yr old cat in need of a home his name is Figaro as in the cats name in the childhood movie Pinocchio , he is a beautiful friendly cat as we are told I hope so I’m already falling in love with him on the computer so we will see how we all relate to one another if all goes well will bring him home .wish us luck . It will be nice to have a friend for Miss Abigail my daughters cat and something for my son to relax with until he leaves for Basic Training and Fir myself to take care of which I do best is taking care of people and animals.
The storm has passed but I believe it’s one of many through out the night. If only it would break this humidity so we can give the air conditioners a break. Well time to read my book , my 500 page one . My daughter bought me the book sharp objects that’s an HBO series it looks so good so I have plenty of books to read, my son and other half are helping to save up money for a new couch we desperately need now that we moved the futon into the new clean spare room where it fits much better. Well time to read , Good night everyone.
When your other half needed to go to bed early for work and it’s just too early to settle what do you do ? Hmm .. you have yourself a movie night so sitting in my cozy chair one light dimming in the room and enjoying an olde but goodie but is just a comforting movie well it always has been for me , it’s simple funny , happy , You Got Mail a 1995 movie staring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks … the best.
I was with my son the day before he had somethings to do and asked if I would like to take a ride with him, of course I said yes .. these moments are few far and in between. As he was driving we came to a red light and sitting on the island next to it was a man eating a sandwich and a piece of card board leaning on his folded legs with the words written on it “anything helps”..homeless . We didn’t stare but he was noticeable I stated he’s talking to himself I meant nothing mean but felt sadness and lonely for him my son looks at me and says yeah I can see that but don’t we all talk to ourself at times ? I said yeah I call that thinking out loud he said yes then said Im just saying we shouldn’t judge .. I told him oh no I wasn’t just he’s lonely I wish we were a bit closer I would have given him some money . But it wasn’t safe to do so where we sat at the light. My son said we do not know what he has been through never judge . I must say I was proud of his statement ,then just sticking his nose up and ignoring him . Which I know my son is not a snob. But the statement made me realize what a mature man he is growing into and how he his sympathetic to those in need. ❤️
