It’s Saturday morning. And a quiet one at that. An unusual occurrence .. let’s see my daughter is at work . My hubby and son went for a hike until my son has to go to work this evening. Something my son has been promising to do with my hubby since he got back from Basic. And I well I’m just sitting down now enjoying my coffee after putting a small load of clothes in the washer and giving Miss Abigail a treat that I have started when I grab my morning coffee … such a habit I have started with her. well all that really needed to be done around here this morning. So just relaxing taking in the quietness and watching Miss Abigail roam through the house. Cats can be so quiet…. soon I hope I can enjoy my morning coffee on my deck . It’s warm today but rainy. Some breaks right now just wet , tomorrow it will be a bit more rain coming down. I was hoping for a thunderstorm but not seeing it in the forecast now. Love them so much. Aww Miss Abigail is sitting next to me her head moving side to side like she’s on alert . That creeps me when she does that ( hahaha) I wonder what she hears or think she hears… I guess I’ll finish my coffee and check out the news and take in the quietness of the morning .
Half way through the week. Where did it go ? The last couple of nights we have all settled in to a good night sleep , or I should say much better. The house is quiet after a morning of a busy noisy kitchen …. blender making smoothies the sound of eggs frying ,the fridge opening closing you know all the morning sounds in the kitchen. Now it’s quiet except for the rumbling of the laundry going with my sons camou in it that he wanted freshly watched for his 1st drill this weekend back home . My daughter getting ready for work . It’s 1:30 already I’m looking at the tv off and on as I write this … my daytime soap is on. Not getting into it as much today . Always days like this when you watch soaps🙄 The washing machine has stopped and now replaced with the roaring of the wind that has picked up. The sun is out and I did see some action in the nature department lol we had a Fox in our yard eating from our compost . He looked like a baby . It’s not a very clear picture. But you will get the adjust of this cutie without scarring him away. Our grass is not greening in yet from the long winter and our water in the fountain has finally melted so my hubby will soon clean it out put fresh water in and by then the ground will green up and the flowers will bloom around it. For now finishing the kitchen up. and enjoying the everyday comings and going of my family.🙂
I woke to a rainy day. After along night of reading . Did I finish it ? No! Two more chapters . Then I was over tired so I just laid here in the very lighted room from the full moon. ..not thinking about much just how the book may end . Should of just finished it hahaha) I woke at 6 then fell back to sleep ,waking and seeing it was 8:00 . I dragged my tired self out of bed and into the shower then yes straight to the coffee. My adult kids still asleep , I settled in my chair with my cup of coffee and news.
I heard my son wake and grab some coffee then disappearing back towards his room well that end of the house. My daughter appeared with Miss Abigail who yes studied the sectional .. my daughter told her no and she settled in her chair . I chatted with her while we enjoyed our coffee then was called by my son to please come to him … there I found him on the computer . And saw the letters FASA and I was like oh no I can’t 😂 he chuckled and said I need your help . Well let’s see after two hours of changing passwords getting the updated info he needed he had applied for financial aid. Yes college in the Fall.. and dorming. It’s only 45 minutes away but said this would just eat up gas and our driveway is horrible in the winter so easier to just be there. I couldn’t agree more .
The rest of the day was quiet . My daughter had work my son gym and still with friends happy though he has some jobs lined up . And his first National Guard job begins on April 2nd . He will be hoping to do the ROTC program his Sargent suggested to move his rank status.. any ways the day was quiet I watched my shows . And made a tuna casserole for supper okay doesn’t look that appetizing but it came out better then I thought . Hubby enjoyed it. It’s 9:30 my son is still out as well as my daughter now with her boyfriend . It’s cloudy so no full moon … hopefully will sleep better . Hubby and I watched our favorite show Seal Team that is back on with its new season. And now he is fast asleep. And soon I will try myself . It’s amazing it Friday already tomorrow. Saturday night my niece is turning 16 so she wants us all to go to her favorite place Texas Roadhouse for dinner. That will be a fun evening. My daughter unfortunately works till 8 that night but is fine if not going. I think I’ll bring her home a meal . My son said he will go he loves eating out . Plus loves that place as well. Okay it’s going on 10 I guess I’ll say goodnight . 🙂
Saturday morning waking early after some really weird dreams.. if only could remember them. dragging myself out from under the warm cozy covers I jumped in the shower then to the kitchen where Miss Abigail was waiting. I wouldn’t say patiently for her morning treat, that I have happened to have started as a bad habit because if I do not grab it fast enough while entering the kitchen her meowing will drive you crazy… and every morning I say to her “why are you not downstairs with your mama .. I grab my coffee and flick through the tv channels nothing is on even the news this morning is boring. So I keep on going through the channels and come upon a cartoon that my son loved and had just said the other day after I found a GIF to send him which was the character of this cartoon .. how much he missed it and that time… oh the GIF’s are addicting but so much fun when you can’t find the right word to explain something to someone. Anyways its Sponge Bob squarepants. The strangest cartoon ever but has managed to stay around for many yrs. and yes a sponge he is 🙄 as I’m enjoying my coffee and waiting for the washer to stop .. yes never ending always laundry to do.. I look away from the tv to check my phone that is going off , when I look back up towards the tv and I see thisI swear she out to get me. 🙄 I am also thinking she doesn’t like the show very much as well. Going to be a long day with this girl… I guess time to put the wet close into the dryer .. and make a food shopping list.
It’s a quiet Friday February morning! So happy it’s February . It’s closer to my son coming home , as of next week it will be 4 weeks until he will he flys home. If you read my last posts of my stupidity 🙄 it’s all good. If anything my mess up with Facebook I believe made him think I was missing him , well of course I’m missing him but I think to the point I was really sad .. yes I am emotional person but that goes either way. Around 6 last night I got a message from him “hey! “So I replied Hi ! He said “How are you” ? Right then I knew he saw and wondered … knowing my son the how are you means so much more (haha) I replied I’m good ! you? He said nothing so then I told him about all the pics he did a haha and said wow you did get a lot of likes 🙄 I said did you see your page it tagged you .. you can delete he replied no I’m fine with it …phew!!! So yes all good with a mother and technology ..
Now talking about dreams ,myself and blogger friends who been having some strange ones… I had a very strange one last night .. one that is so strange you wake with a panic feeling and your happy it was only a dream.. it wasn’t scary I don’t know it was like being in a musical but a old back in the day kind of thing but strangely it was in my Town and the town looked back in the past but not and the music was old , it was strange because it wasn’t scary and I can’t piece it together but whatever startled me I do not know . Very strange is all I can say. And what’s strange it was like I dreamed it before or a deja vu.. That’s another one to write down… as I woke from that I could hear my daughter in the kitchen getting herself coffee . Our house is small so not tight quarters but it doesn’t take much to say hi or good morning and it echoes down the hall to our kitchen .. being a raised ranch style house. She came in sat on my bed and said good morning .. yawning as she told me she did not sleep well. And the coffee was a necessity before jumping in the shower to get ready for work. I did tell her about the dream , she tried to remember if we talked about musicals the day before. .. nothing . Then she went for her shower as I did . Now enjoying my coffee in a quiet house except for the sound of the news . Today I will get out run and do some errands and tonight my hubby and I will order out at our local pizza shop .. my daughter works till this evening then she will be with her boyfriend . A quiet Friday night as well. Tomorrow we will conquer the grocery store . Super Bowl is Sunday so the grocery store will be busy … always some kind of an occasion for people to need to eat and celebrate… its a night game so my hubby and I will stay home and watch it . I’m going to make some chili and cornbread have some chicken wings, hubby will enjoy a few beers and I a cup of wine. Work the next day for my hubby so he doesn’t want to celebrate too much.
Time to finish my coffee run my errands. Have a good day everyone.
Monday’s what can we say about Monday’s … their not the most favorable day 🙄 but this one I must admit wasn’t too bad , after a rainy dreary Sunday and no sleep the night before , it was nice to wake up to a bright sunny morning after a good nights sleep. and a very good hair day (hahaha) now to tell you what I did today well I don’t know it was a day of just whatever I enjoyed my cup of coffee a bit longer this morning . Chatted with a friend on Facebook . Then proceeded with getting supper going in the faithful crockpot . Then just chatted on and off with my daughter who had off today but spent the most part of her day down in her place as she cleaned it and hung out with her boyfriend who was over. I left went to the Post Office and there sat two letters from my son in our post box. It was nice to hear from him he is sounding much more mature . And excited about coming home for Christmas but actually now is switching gears … again … now instead of missing home he’s going on now how he thinks he’s going to miss the base it feels like home to him now the funny thing is I’m wondering because he is coming home for 12 days for Christmas and I’m thinking when he comes home to his bed , us , his old friends we could be dragging him to the airport to go back to AIT there. But I do understand and he’s made such great friends and even though they exchanged phone numbers and so on it won’t be the same as they move on to graduation and their AIT heading in different directions. One guy he is happy about because they realize they only live several town overs so hopefully they can catch up with one another. He’s come a long ways from feeling sappy to now going to miss being their .. oh home is going to be so boring for him. I’m thinking he may reach out even more to an Army career but will see he’s young and good at changing his mind a lot … it can make your head spin. Whatever he chooses I just hope it’s not settling for less in this town .. it’s a nice little town to raise a family and retire in but not for a active adventurous young guy . It can be a bad thing. So yes defiantly will see. I do know I love my kids will do anything for them but want them to be independent happy adults like we all hope and wish for. And I’m actually getting use to just doing whatever ..my lazy routine if you want me to admit it. (Hahaha) yes I know I’m limited as it is physically and so I know my limits … I just know I’m into a routine of keeping myself busy in simple ways . Taking to more friends doing more hobbies It will be nice to have a bit more activity in this quiet house . But Im just afraid he will come home and after awhile settle back into his old ways of doing his running and I wondering where he is .. I know what people have told me he’s part of the Army now so National Guard reserves or full time they own him and that has and will keep him knowing to be on the straight and narrow not that he never was he just loves late nights and keeping me wondering. Oh how things change and it’s so hard to adjust then you do and then things change again and you have to adjust again to that change .. this thing called life 🙂
- Good Morning woke to temps in the 50′”s crisp cool autumn winds blowing.. compared to going to bed with humid sticky air and 60 temps . Can I say Fall is here for good this time ? For the second time my husband is taking the air conditioners out of our bedroom yes he took it out then it got so humid again it went back in. My daughters has been out being she’s on the lower floor and my sons will be coming out for the first time . We kept his in with all the running and working out we thought he would need it. This cold weather feels good. And coffee taste really good . A hot pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks will taste good later . My daughter needs to get an oil change so we were going to wait for her car then after it was done go and get a latte I may go with her that was the plan but never know with her . I think or hoping my husband keeps busy outside with putting lawn furniture away .He’s not use to being home alone as I am . So it will be good if he’s busy outside. Sad how we get into a routine depending on someone being around all the time . I think I’m the only one who is home alone a lot and now will be even more when next week comes with my husband back to work. So I guess it is the time to get to that library and renew my library card .. this week. Time to think of Christmas shopping that will be mostly online. So I will have some things to keep me busy. Well for now that’s about it not an exciting post this morning .. my morning news is over and time to get ready for this day no laundry this morning I think the washing machine is in shock (haha) not much yesterday so yeah that is a bit different. Okay must get going …sigh..
