Woke after having a full nights sleep once again so rare for me.. silly thing is I fell asleep so soundly as the music echoed loudly through the bedroom window and the fan blew in some of the bonfire scent from my sons fire with many of his friends showing up through out the evening one car after another. Their good kids so no worries for I but my other half was not liking it….🙄 they were doing nothing wrong so I told him to just go to bed .. well he did but I do not believe he slept well but oh I did .. I woke to my living room filled with his friends sleeping on our sectional , floor , chairs wherever they could get comfortable. Once out of the shower they were headed out to grab some breakfast in town at their favorite local diner . And I enjoyed some coffee out on the deck surprisingly the fire still smoking.oh how I will miss him and his friends…. but such as the wind changes direction so does life . And all we can do is figure out if we go in the direction of the winds change or against the wind and stay where we are? I want to believe we go where the wind takes us . Isn’t life about change , moving forward? I hope so. How can you or things stay the same if everything else is changing around us. I believe that would be like feeling dead inside. My opinion only. This blog isn’t named winds of change for nothing. On to the last week of the four of us all together. And it is going to be hard .. he brings life to this family . His contagious adventurous personality . Just lights everything up but I know he is looking forward to all of this and is ready so that makes me happy. And I’m curious to see where the wind takes us….
It’s 8:30 at night and it’s completely dark out . I’m happily enjoying the movie Bohemian Rhapsody as I write this. I love Queens music and the story , I know everyone may have different opinions on it but all I see is a man who fought many struggles of who he was or who he should be . And I cannot judge someone who is struggling .. this world is made up of people living their life’s in the way they choose and seem to work for them. We do not know the struggles of anyone all we can do is respect their choice to tell or their choice to stay silent . So with that said I’m going enjoy the rest of the movie .
Day 4 of still down… for a bit last night I thought I kicked it out of me , and though finally I could get some sleep. NOT! Wide awake because I have been resting so much just watching TVs so just been sitting around during the day . Then the body aches came back and the night was a long one . Woke feeling lousy if I could of slept probably would of been better this morning. .. not helping that it was a mild day and now dropping and the winds have picked up so here we go again with the change of the weather. Today my daughter laid on the couch still not feeling good as well. So as we sipped cups of tea we watched a movie a friend of hers gave her to watch. Must say so different then I thought and the twists in this movie where so many , just when you thought you figured it out ..no another twist came along. . So worth a watch . Now it’s evening and the wind is roaring banging against the house at the moment .I believe Miss Abigail is down with her mom . Earlier she sat in front of me starring at me , nothing like getting starred down by a cat🙄 I had to send a pic to my daughter who was in shock .. she told me I could send her down . I think she went down after on her own. Nooo she’s back! Hahaha. Well I guess it’s time to now try settling in bed…see if I can get into a book …
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 . ❤️
So earlier I posted about spending my rainy day in between things getting done around the house and finishing reading my book that I have been trying for days to do . Thought this rainy day would be the perfect time Well… let’s say that didn’t happen 🙂 my son was home taking a break after his weekend training for Army National Guard then Monday taking a long run and workout in this heat …🙄 over doing it his body was begging for a break ,thankfully a rainy dark day to do just that , so he laid on the couch on his phone and we off and on chatted randomly about nothing specific . Then my daughter had a early shift so she was home around 3 and then my hubby was home and He settled in the bedroom with the air conditioner and I made a early supper . My kids and I watched the new Jumanji movie my daughter has the video they both had seen it but I hadn’t so we watched it. Lets say a long movie but so good ! What a funny, happy movie . The Rock and Jack Black never disappoints me. The rest of the cast were good too! I laughed so much. So reading was set aside again… after I post this I’m determined to finish my book tonight (hahahaha) well my plan. As we are settled in our room air still running rain still coming down .. and my son actually activated his Xbox membership to play online with a friend of his . So rare these days … okay time to read 🙂
Saturday came as fast as it went . My son won two medals with his track team and then decided after to get together with a couple of his buddies so my hubby dropped him off at his car and hubby came home, as soon as he walked in the door I noticed right off he looked like a lobster , he was so sun burned on his face and arms . He said he would go good shopping with me so we left so he could come home and relax . Thankfully it didn’t take long. Hours later my son arrived just as sunburned but wet… him and his buddies decided it would be a good idea to jump in the river . He said it was shockingly cold . Oh I believe it the ice on the rivers just finally melted about a week ago so yes it may have been warm out but the rivers are not ready for visitors. Boys! 🙄
It’s night now the peepers are out and are making the noises they do best . Air is warm but with a slight cool breeze blowing in so lightly the fresh air through our open windows.The moon is full so the woods are lit up . The turkeys that was in the yard earlier as moved on until tomorrow hey come back everyday till Fall is here.we are settled in bed watching a movie lone Survivor ,hmm ..yeah just what a mom wants to see who’s son wants to do this… speaking of my son he is fast asleep after getting up at 6 this morning to get ready for his race and after a swim and the sunburn . He looked exhausted and in know mood for small talk just made his food showered and said a goodnight. Miss Abigail is doing laps up and down the hallway I wonder if my son can hear the thumping of her paws against the wood floor. . The full moon is helping her with this 🙂. Love the sound of the peepers at night . To settle your mind and let you drift off to sleep. Well it will be nice to hear Better after the movies over.. I guess I will finish watching then get some sleep . Good night everyone.
Beautiful ending to an exciting Friday Track Meet . Brutally cold but with a blanket wrapped around me worked well🙂 our boys Track and Field team won their 2nd meet of the season again . My son broke his record . Came in faster so his hard work is paying off. My hubby niece , Mother in/law and my daughter cheered him on. Happily he is out with his friends now and my daughter as well so hubby and I are home and warming up and watching a movie Suicide Squad …hmm a bit strange and interesting at the same time ..but hubby likes Will Smith and it was on tv’s movie channel tonight so where watching it. I guess I will finish watching it with him . Goodnight everyone🙂
