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..
Never expect the weather to stay the same in New England. Just the day before I open windows to let the fresh air in . This morning as I enjoy my breakfast and holding my hot coffee cup enjoying the warmth of it in my hands because now I’m cold ( hahaha) not complaining just surprised after running the air for weeks to cool the house off . I happen to look at the temps and I can see why it’s cool. The leaves are turning here and there I do not think it will be a vibrant foliage this yr. tell that to the traffic that has backed up in the past weeks to check out this
My daughter is back from the beach she had a good time but said it was nice to be home. We chatted while she did her laundry then she was off out with her boyfriend . My son I have no idea what time he came home last night . After watch the finale of America’s got talent . I read my book it was getting to 11:30 and I knew I need to put it down and get some sleep or I would be up all night.the book has been dragging but now I’m down to the last three chapters and it’s picked up so much I did it want to stop reading. … that was the way Stephen Kings book was . Happy I fell asleep quick once again to wake to seeing my sons car keys on the table and his shoes by the door evidence he was home (hahaha) two weeks left here and he will be in Missouri for Basic Training. Now time is flying. We are so proud of him and he is ready . Waiting ..wondering when he will be home or what he’s doing will be an adjustment . I think I may get more sleep knowing he is on a base not running here and there . It will be quiet my kitchen door will not be opening closing constantly. Yesss I will miss him so much but happy he is doing what he wants.. well time to finish my coffee and start my day .
sitting outside enjoying my coffee this morning ,the humidity is slowly moving away once again the cool breeze feels beautiful. Love when each morning feels new and like a clean slate … A day to start something new or make a fresh start in life..make some thing thats wrong and turn it into a right or just keep being ,doing what is good . Most important be the best that you can be .Many possibilities. Open your mind your heart to something good and new today. While doing that you could be putting a smile on someone’s face who needs a kind person to be near . I love this saying I’ve heard “do not let life harden you” with all of lifes ups and downs it can. Now to enjoy the rest of my coffee and the beautiful blue sky above me . Enjoying some time with my son today. After a beautiful day spent with my daughter the day before.❤️
After a night sitting around a roaring fire with family enjoying good food , drinks , and much laughter and singing ( hahaha) read my earlier post about that 🙂 I did the struggle after settling down well after 1 … I woke at 6 ughh… threw the pillow over my head and fell back to sleep waking up at 9 so I guess it was time the pull myself out of bed and grab some well needed coffee before heading to the shower .. Im sit in the living room looking at the rain coming down as I’m enjoying my coffee and the news , I can’t believe the change from last night stars in the sky a beautiful fire, warm temps to 57 temps dark and rainy ,wind blowing and top it off my favorite weather lady “s last day on our channel .. I know what your thinking what ?? is she kidding ? ( hahaha) but sorry I’m not and I’m okay (hahaha) it’s just when you get use to someone on your favorite news show .. ok lame but sadly I’m just this simple 🙂 I guess one more cup of coffee is needed to start this day. Food shopping it is and then who knows maybe a good book or some Netflix after…
Good Morning ,it’s been some quiet mornings this week just Miss Abigail and I she’s roaming around in the house as I sit outside enjoying my coffee . Another beautiful day suns shining the air is a bit cooler then the other mornings but feels refreshing. I have been trying to get use to these moments of quietness … as each day passes it’s one day closer to a quieter house. No more doors opening and closing continuously , no houseful of kids ransacking our cupboards for food. No loud music playing unless it’s my hubby or I (hahaha) I think that actually will be me playing more music to drown out the quietness.. no more sport meets to run too that will be the hardest for my hubby to adjust to.. My children will still live at home for a bit ..but now they will both be adults and living their life doing their thing . My daughter working getting closer to her new boyfriend spending more time away from the house, my son ,college / National Guards and spending also more time away as well. . Time sure does fly by and I’m still / trying to adapt to a new journey myself . I will be spending more time now with friends then taking care of this house. I’m hoping my hubby can adapt easily he is thinking a lot about things too … I know I need to go back to my motto ..take it one day at a time . Hmmm so hard taking your own advise. Oh but I will. 🙂
Off and on I woke during the night … I know I had some dreams but really do not remember them. Restless nights are no fun makes for a hard morning …especially when it’s a rainy one . So I dragged myself out of bed to the shower and then to the kitchen for some coffee. My son rubbing his eyes has he made it to the kitchen to make his breakfast silence is the word ( hahaha) he is not a talkative person in the morning . Sadly I’m a talkative person anytime of the day (hahaha) believe me . I believe I’ve have mentioned in my other posts he isn’t. So I grabbed my coffee and headed into the living room to check up on the news. as he banged around in the kitchen . Soon after I could hear the laughing of girls ..my daughter and her friend with Miss Abigail following them up from her place. Getting some coffee and sit around my kitchen table for a bit with their phones in hand. so no quiet house this morning thats okay with me 🙂
Happy it’s Friday it’s a whatever night for supper which actually means simple cooking … chicken stir fry or whatever .. it will be a quiet night tonight my son has a early meet in the morning about an hr away . My hubby will go and watch too much of a day on my feet for myself but my heart will be there with him . I get the task the next part of the weekend going with my son to find a tux for his Senior Prom … a bittersweet thing because my son and his girlfriend broke up so he is going with his guy friends that do not have dates as well . I say good for them go have fun dance there will be girls that are single as well who will want to dance ,their all friends. At first he wasn’t going to go because he always went to dances with his gf but being his senior prom he has decided not to miss out . That is our weekend. It’s amazing that it’s Friday already the week seem to fly by. As I write this the rain is still coming down and Miss Abigail is sleeping away on the couch she looks so cozy. My daughter and her friend are off and doing things and my son is at his track practice and hubby’s working . So I’m just finishing things up around the house , my day shows are all done so news is on for some noise on this dark dreary day. I should play some music that may be more uplifting. 🙂
