Weekend… Full circle

It’s been a nice Weekend ! Saturday evening close friends came over, a couple that my husband has been best friends with since his school days .. yes very rare these days and I best friends with his wife since the day I met both of them dating my hubby back in the day. We became fast friends when a little while after she began dating my husbands friend . We had many fun weekend adventures the four of us, so many things together. laughs and great chats before we both decided to start our families .. actually her and I were pregnant within 8 months of one another. Our two daughters growing up together from babies to now in their 20″s yes in different places of time but still best friends My friend has 3 kids so her son came a yr after our firsts then her third child her second daughter we were once again pregnant together with her third and my second my youngest my son . We did a lot together as families Trick or treating. Birthday parties sleep overs , some vacations . Many chats on the phone talking about the kids .. the good.. the bad , the drama , and then one day they all grew up as well as us (hahaha) and things Began to change less time together different towns apart . different parenting groups and less chats , yes life got busy and as always for the most part we lost sight of us being friends as we once started out to be. .. much like how you loose who you are once you have kids , everything seems to be surrounded by this new life your family your kids , not that you meant to but you just in some cases loose sight of who you are. Then one day your kids grow up and here you are but sadly thinking who are you now? If your lucky you kept sight of this when you began this new journey called parenting. If you haven’t then you now begin the new journey called next chapter and let me tell you starting a family and becoming a parent is no easy task but honestly I think this new chapter after kids is a bit more harder to except. Luckily my friend and I have found our way back to one another . Oh so different still adjusting , learning . So last night finally got together after sometime and as couples not a family get together. They came over our husbands went and grabbed the food we ordered ..and we stayed back and just let the words flow out .. we couldn’t stop talking 🙂 it was so refreshing .husbands came back with the food we ate chatted the four of us then after the guys stayed in the kitchen playing cards enjoying some drinks and her and I settled in the living room chatting , laughing then after we enjoyed some dessert my husband turned on the good ol 80″s channel and the music from our past just filled the air around us . We just stood in the kitchen laughing singing being foolish to the point of tears (hahaha) then it dawned on me I told them this is so like the saying “coming full circle ” that’s what we were doing without even realizing it .. yes older but it was such an amazing moment as we paused for a moment taking in that thought . It was indeed a nice night . I think we need more of these nights .

So it begins…

It was a quiet Saturday the temps here were warm and a bit humid after doing what needed to be done around the house and waiting to hear how my son was doing at his meet .I went and sat out on my deck swing and listen to whatever was making the thrashing noise in our woods. Sat there for a bit and never figured it out . My son made it into the finals for the relay race so now onto the State Championships. So very proud of him ..just the timing is not good it’s the following Sat night under the lights and his graduation is the next day so it will make for a very tiring ceremony…why do they do this… any ways so evening was here by the time the guys came home from the meet ,my Mother in -law called to tell us her sister was doing a bonfire ,now that may sound strange but her sister is a lot younger then you think hahaha my mother in- law is in her mid 60″s and her sister is in her mid 50″s so she loves to do fires so we went over with the the rest of the family had some drinks sat around the fire the sisters son plays guitar so he brought it out and getting foolish we sat their singing random songs he played. like Leonard Skyner .. John cougar , all the good oldies that’s fun to sing around a fire . As I write this I have to laugh .. if people could of saw us they would of defiantly thought we had lost our minds🙄 so as I had titled this post yes it begins , the endless bonfires I see coming this summer. If the rain hadn’t come crashing down on us I think we would have still been sitting out there.. sad it’s midnight and I’m wide awake not good .. I guess I’ll just listen to the rain as I try to settle in for the night …morning will be here soon enough..

Sunday Ride❤️

The weather is cold and dreary but my hubby and I decided to get out of the house we really didn’t feel like going into town shopping kind of outting . A pleasant ride was what we we looking for . So the radio in the truck playing music heat on so nice and warm …. So we just went on good old back roads . As you see no snow .. That could change by Wednesday, but we where surprise because even parts in the woods where there usually is wasn’t much just patches here and there.  The sap buckets are out if you notice the pails on the trees .. Hopefully the sap is running… And when the sap stops running they will be collecting those pales from all over the towns and boiling the sap into sweet and delicious maple syrup !  The best  sweetest tastes on pancakes , French toast .. Waffles you will ever taste. I still need to make the homemade pancakes my friend yes I like to call her my friend , she follows my blog as I follow hers and she gave me the recipe I  need to still try and post on here for her . If your reading you know who you are🙂 I haven’t forgotten.  The ride was nice did spot some deer in a field but didn’t want to stop the truck  and take a picture  scare them off . We just let them be. Now we are home and supper needs to be our next thing to think about so for now  I will go have a great evening everyone🙂

Remember ❤️

Settled in with my hubby under our warm blankets on this cold night  enjoying the Country Music Awards. It pulled at the heart strings they  dedicated  the show to all the tradgedies that have been shaking up our world , the weather the Las Vegas shooting,  New York ,  Texas church shooting all so heart breaking   and so unfair but watching and listening to the music brought all of us together to remember the life’s lost and we will never forget . Even though evil still lurks we can be comforted to know that we stand together and lean on one another and build strength to not let this overcome us we will keep on fighting and and hopefully conquer this  hatred . It was nice to watch this with my famiy and sing along and tear up a bit but most important we watched this together . It’s over now so time to get some sleep .sweet dreams everyone.

Nothing like a Town Fair..

 This is the beautiful sight of the full moon shining it’s amazing light over the Roundhouse at our Town Fair as we where leaving tonight. So happy my husband and I decided to go , we always went for the kids but now they can go on thier own or not but they where both there arriving at different times my daughter with her friends and my son headed to his booth he was working at selling apple pies for his Senior yr. The night started off with my husband and  I walking down the midway looking at one  thing or another and then looking at one another with smirks  on our faces like okay now what do we do … it’s been the first time we entered this fair without kids in 20 years yes unbelievable it was just so strang but we stuck with it and stayed and we did meet up with my daughter and her friend talked to my sons friends and saw my older sister and her family that I do not get much time with, with her busy schedule and we found that we both where feeling the same way and how life has changed so much ,we had a nice talk and then went on with our families then we ran into my husbands uncle and listen to the band that was playingand shared some laughter while  enjoying my slice of a very delicious apple pie with ice cream yes from my sons booth 🙂 it was such a different but nice new experience at the fair this year . I need to remember this that things are changing and changing with them can be good  and what  choice do we have anyways it’s the way it is and look I would of missed this beautiful sight.
