Beautiful day out..

Headed out a bit early with my daughter her car needed an old change . So off to dealership she bought it from . I’m happy she has such great service ,where I bought mine from it’s horrible , all we had to do was drive into the open bay they asked what was needed and 20 mins later we where off to enjoy some lunch . As you see I tried to go as healthy as I could being that yes it was eating out.. so soup and a salad no bread… it was really good and light . Now our next stop was not as healthy.. sorry but not sorry.. we both enjoyed a Carmel chocolate chip macchiato ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธhave to always get our coffee when we are near a Starbucks … okay actually any coffee place when we are out (hahaha) not a complete day out with my daughter if there is no coffee involved. After we hit the Walmart and grabbed a few things that where needed and I found a cute blouse I couldn’t let go of๐Ÿ™‚

On a different note. We headed to this Big Y gas station our local store around our area has gas stations you can get a discount if you have their card. I went in with her to pay to grab a water. And… there was my daughters ex boyfriend. Can you say awkward! Well not for me but for my daughter. She did pretty good I must say.. he did as well a bit surprised when we walked in he said hi to me first and they talked a bit but sadly I could see his eyes tear up … the hopeless try to make everyone happy person open her mouth and asked if he was doing okay and he started to tell us … okay this guy is such a loss soul . He’s never been very happy had a hard childhood so him with a relationship is hard but other then that he’s really a good person and means well but him and my daughter were just not good for one another. He is still friends with my son and I on Facebook . My son likes the guy and felt bad for him . So once again my mouth opened and I said if he ever wanted someone to talk to message me because well the line behind us was picking up and we had to let him get back to work . Okay the look on my daughters face was not pretty…. we arrive at her car and she said oh mom why did you tell him that? And you know he won’t talk to you.. okay I’m fine with that but I just had to offer ..sadly it’s who I am . Does it get me in trouble at times yes .. My heart kind of breaks for him . I feel bad for people who are not happy with their life .. I know not my place so .. so be it I put it out there and if he does I will not mind being an ear for him. On our way home it was a bit quiet but she got over it and all was good. Now my house is filled with chatty laughing guys . A beautiful sound . My son arrived home with a friend so their cooking up food and the house is not quiet. Oh how I will miss this when he is at college… I’m trying to line my self up with things to do friends to see and talk to it will all come together I’m sure .

Tuesday out!

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… ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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.๐Ÿ™‚

A day for a little ride …Not!

Today was a beautiful Sunny Friday, my hubby said let’s take a ride just a little one … I said okay and knew in the back of my mind it would not be short, Let’s see after 6hrs later we were pulling into our driveway . Let’s see with in the ride there was a nice lunch at a beautiful restaurant by the water The Marina. Yes where boats are docked the scenery was beautiful looking out over the water while we enjoyed a light lunch. Then it was off to New Hampshire and Then Manchester Vermont which was so serene , such simple living. The mountains were absolutely breathtaking the way they surrounded us off in the distance. All I could think of was how much my hubby and son would love to be hiking them… as my daughter and I walked endlessly around to the clothing and book stores and then enjoying a nice chat about the books we purchased at one of the many outdoor cafes on every corner enjoying a coffee or a drink . Yes simple living it is people sitting outside in the fresh air enjoying their drinks and or food and happily chatting away the day.. In the fall when the leaves change actually in some spots they were already but when they really change we want to go back with our kids even if it’s a bit cooler we can still enjoy the coffee shops a nice hot cup of tea or coffee would be perfect. Will see ..it would have to be sometime in September because my son leaves the 2nd week of October so maybe September will still be warm .I know the leaves will be turning more by then. Well we are now home and settled watching pre season football well for the most part my hubby is .I am going to read . Enjoying my reading time more and more everyday. Enjoy my photos!

Out and about..

Today was spent with my daughter which was a pleasant surprise catching a late day lunch at one of our favorite places Panera Bread, it’s such a great relaxing place ,your not rushed to leave your table people spend a good amount of time enjoying good conversations with family , friends, some sit enjoy their food while on their laptop or tablet, or phone or with their favorite book.. For me it seemed more special because it’s been awhile enjoying lunch and spending a day in the city with her, after we went shopping and founds some good bargains my daughter and I walked away with several blouses each .always love a good sale.

It’s evening now and the kids will be out with friends , my hubby and I are relaxing on the deck there is all kinds of sounds as the evening turns into night. It’s peaceful. Soon the stars will be out. Time to sit back and enjoy.

Photo Monday !!

This is my photo for Photo Monday since my daughter and I where out running errands before the storm we grabbed lunch at Panera Bread it was nice and relaxing a bit more busier then I like but luckly found a seat by the fire. The food was simple and deliciously hot and filling . So we chatted and enjoyed then we cleaned up and headed to the store for things for the storm … sadly my sons school is the only school still open ….. are they kidding? Okay sorry for another day. Any ways we ended the errands with a Starbucks drink which was such a treat haven’t had Starbucks in awhile . It was a pleasant fun day with my daughter.
