A lighter note..

  • On a lighter note… Sunday has been a nice quiet calm day . I did the usual things that are never ending around the house. Then settled for a change and enjoyed an afternoon movie. The house was mine my husband went for a run . My daughter at work . My son laying down after a long sleepless weekend with National Guard Duty. I enjoyed . It’s now evening and the sun is slowly setting the evening is still warm. Dinner is done and cleaned up . This afternoon I happen to look out to see the fox was back in our yard enjoying himself in our compost . He is such a little guy , not afraid you can walk outside and he will just look at you and turn back enjoying what feast he may find. Now our coyote is a different story . He is so skittish one sound or movement and he is off running deep into our woods. Never realized how skittish they are .
  • It’s 7:00 in the evening it’s still calm and quiet. Just enjoying it. Nothing else needed to do nothing to have to think about. Just nothing (hahaha) yes I’m feeling a bit lazy as well. I’m thinking of reading in a bit and see how that goes. Yes still struggling my way through the Stephen King novel. It is getting better but honestly you shouldn’t have to struggle through a book. Until I find another book to get into. Stephen King is it. On that note I think I will go and try reading .Have a goodnight everyone.

    Sunday…

    As long as last week was ,as short as this weekend is. It’s just hitting 7:30 and the sun has already disappeared below the trees and settled into the mountain well thats how it looks . Peepers no more . Do they stop making noise at a certain time of the season? And no wildlife as well . At least the humidity is slowly dissipating. It’s a bit more bearable . A new week will be beginning and plans are being made to fill it up . Monday will be spent eyewear shopping with my daughter who needs to get new glasses and wants my opinion. Maybe I can find a book or two while we are out and about. Then Wednesday my daughter and I will catch an afternoon movie. We want to see the new The lion King , my daughter loved it as a little girl . It looks really good . So looking forward to that. All fun things to do this week. Then the birthday weekend will arrive and I can’t wait for that to pass by … not for my son I love celebrating my kids birthdays it’s mine Id like to forget. So with that said my son is accumulating a good room full of items for his college dorm. Unbelievable he will be starting college in a month . National Guard drill will be starting up for him the first of August so he has that to do as well. Things will get busy soon for him and I less busy….. less busy worrying about him (hahaha) he will be tucked away in school. I’m really hoping he likes it. Time will tell. In the mean time I will enjoy both my kids while their home together . A rarity these days. It’s 8 now and it’s getting dark already . My son is out on his bike for a quick ride before it gets completely dark. Waiting to hear the roar of it’s engine soon pulling into the driveway. Oh how he loves that bike. Hubby will be going to bed in a half n hour ,4 in the morning comes quick . To early for me to settle so I’ll take advantage of the quietness and read some more of my book. Hoping I can get into it more. Not ready to give up on it yet. Well until then I guess I will get a couple of things done . Have a good night everyone!

    End of a long week..

    This week of endless humidity has finally came to an end for now at least , until Wed when their forecasting an even warmer and humid rest of next week. Happy as well to see last week end … was in a bit of a funk… it is time to face the new paths that life is throwing at me from every direction. Time to do what is right for me . I quote a few special friends on here that have told me this. It’s heard but time. Need to be happy finding my way in this next chapter of life. I guess it’s not so bad to just be…. have I excepted the age I’m turning…. hmm NO! (Hahaha) for now I’ll work on those new paths .With that said and done . I’ve had a quiet nice start of a weekend. Let’s see On Friday night hubby and I enjoyed watching the movie Bohemian Rhapsody . I was hesitant but watched it because my hubby loves the band and I remember when we first started dating he had a phase where he played their cassettes , yes I said cassettes , 🙂constantly.. I do like some of their songs . It was interesting I must say … a good interesting. That filled our night. Once settling I received a text that my son would be out with friends after his late shift at work , my daughter out as well. So we decided to get some sleep . A light sleep at that … our front door swung open and shut several times as each came home and I heard them , then my daughter texting me from her place are you awake hmm ..!of course I was this was about 1 in the morning she loves night time chats as I do . They are the best. We talked for a bit then we decided to get some sleep.

    I woke to the sound of my hubby and son banging around in the kitchen figuring it was time to get up myself grab a quick shower and coffee. My hubby and son where heading out the door to drop off my sons motorcycle for some work on it. Yes he has a motorcycle . Had me a bit frazzled for a couple of weeks I’m not frazzled now but it still makes me say a little prayer when he drives out of the driveway and second one at that within two months first one he decided wasn’t big enough🙄 Ive come to except this one as well . I really have no choice not to ..he is an adult.

    Enjoying this mornings coffee with my daughter and a good conversation was a nice start to this day. She laughed as she saw me and hearing me sing as I added some songs from Queen in my playlist on my Chromebook that had stuck in my head after the movie. She made me laugh when she said I looked so happy as I was singing when she came up from her place. 🤷🏻‍♀️ after that the guys arrived home and I left with my hubby to do some Saturday errands and of course a coffee …. love my coffee. No errands or ride is complete with out a coffee stop . Once home hubby went for a run and I caught up with a friend Ive known since Elementary School. She is a nurse and works at night so we try to catchup as often as we can . Even though she’s busy she makes a point to always check in and see how things are going as I do with her. That pretty much filled the rest of my afternoon so now supper is done and cleaned up. Both kids out son working daughter with a friend. I’m going to start a new book . I had posted one recently but just could not get into it. My sister is a huge Stephen King fan and has all of them plus waiting for his newest one she preordered . I have read several and enjoyed them . They have spooked me at times but a good spook this one is called Lisey’s Story 509 pages ..this may take me till Fall to finish. I can’t remember if I posted this but here it is anyways…. so far it’s really good . I’ll keep you posted how it is . It’s 8:30 hubby is watching the Baseball game and I think I will get some reading done. Have a great night everyone.

    Rolling my eyes at myself…

    So tonight my hubby and I are searching through the TV channels for something to watch ..we come upon the movie The Nun. I knew I should of listen to my hubby when he said your not going to like this it’s a horror movie . I kind of new this , my son had told me about it and I knew it was just wrong in general to watch . Being religious and this movie was just so wrong in many ways . Sadly my curiosity got the best of me and it was half way In to the movie and okay let’s just say I have scared myself several times tonight . Just awful this movie was and I regret watching what little I did. I wonder why things are they are in so many sad ways . My hubby turned it. But not soon enough. I guess that will teach me.

    I went outside onto the deck to take in the fresh night air and to focus on something peaceful .I went to look up at the stars and well I striked out again . The clouds have moved in no stars …But I took in the stillness of our darken woods. The sound of the peepers out past the swamp. Occasionally the distant sound of a dog barking. Peaceful it was . At one moment I thought maybe I saw something run across the yard .. maybe a fox or my mind once again playing tricks on me. Yes still regretting .. 🙄 the other night as I laid in bed I could hear the train and it’s whistle from the nearby train tracks but not tonight . Well not yet at least. I let you listen . It’s beautiful.

    Sunday night already…

    It’s Sunday night already .. even though it’s been a long week I can’t believe it’s Sunday and I still feel down.. doesn’t help that not being active and feeling uncomfortable I’m not sleeping well . I think I may have kicked this faster if I had some decent sleep . Laying in bed at midnight night wide awake and not feeling bad at all then finally falling asleep after 1 or more waking up the next morning exhausted . And then a long day down again .. vicious cycle. I’ve watched so much tv but the best was today . I cozied up with a blanket and a cup of tea in my chair and enjoyed an oldie but goodie the movie An Officer and a gentleman. Oh the tears I cried at the end I’m such sappy thing 😂 I love a good romantic movie as much as a romance book. My daughter actually enjoyed it as well hubby watched off and on but took moments of laying in bed, fearing that he is coming down with our sickness ..feeling feverish so that’s not good. I texted with my son off and on more today . He is ready to be done with the Ait part of Basic Training about 3 weeks left aand he will be flying home. So we chatted about jobs when he gets home along with his National Guard Reserves job . And anxiously waiting to hear back from the colleges he as applied too , will see. Now watching the Red Carpet for The Grammys. See how long I last . I like some of the music. And performers but after awhile it gets a bit much. It’s getting started so I guess I will chat a little with my son before he has to be off his phone for the night and enjoy the Grammys with my daughter.and maybe the hubby’s unless he goes to bed early so he can work tomorrow . He is the lucky one he can sleep anytime and anywhere . Wish I had that problem🙂

    Reading time…

    I went to the library and checked out 3 books and two movies ,the movies will watch over the weekend. So tonight I am thinking is a good night to cozy up with a blanket hot chocolate and one of the books . Since the temperatures have dropped . The last couple of nights it’s been chatting with a friend online , I think we chatted till well after midnight. So tonight I think I will read. Even though I enjoyed our talk, I think it will be good to balance it out now with some reading and my friend can settle as well. Out of the three books I have starting with the smaller one to get myself back into reading . My minds been so occupied with things I needed the friendly chat . I’m hoping I can concentrate. . I guess I will give it a try.

    Books..more books and movies..

    I woke pretty early which is unusual for me since not having to wake and get kids going in the morning for school . So I tend to stay up late and sleep in. After a day of dreary wet cold weather . I gave in early and went to bed at a decent time . I woke to a nice sunny crisp fall morning. Enjoyed coffee with my daughter and some conversation then we headed in different directions to start our day.I left went to the post box ..hmm… nothing from my son. I know it’s early. But I can at lest hope..then headed to the library FINALLY ! I did it I was still in their system just needed. to renew my expired card but not having it still . The librarian issued me a new one . I Lucked out ..thinking I would have to order the books I wanted ,she had had them plus I picked out a book that looked really interesting and the Author was local ..even better. I found two movies . Chatted with people I hadn’t seen in awhile and walked out about an hr later with three books and two movies. I guess I’ll be reading after my hubby and I watch hour favorite shows and he goes to bed early for work . As well as a day when no errands need to be run and house is cleaned up . I can curl up with a nice hot cup of tea and a book on these cold days. Happy I finally went . It was nice and everyone there was pleasant. This way it’s cheaper too then buying the books I guess it’s time to see about supper hubby will be home soon and hungry . The Conners are on tonight the premier since they took Roseanne Barr off her own show . Don’t know if I’ll watch it or not tonight I’m recording it just Incase but that subject is for another day …. 🙄 I’m thinking of watching The Voice ,then start one of the books .I’m thinking that reading before bed helps me sleep better too. Okay time to take care of supper.
