Windy night…

Laying in bed trying to read . But the wind is roaring which is an understatement .. it’s reeking havoc! It’s a bit unsettling. So trying to focus on my book is a bit hard. My hubby is lucky he’s snoring away and not hearing it or he would be going from one window to another like a dog .. hahaha.. My son who settled in a bit earlier then us , texted me from his room asking if I was still up and if I was hearing the wind. He couldn’t believe how loud it was. He said he wished he was sleeping so he wouldn’t have to listen to it. We’ve been texting back and forth trying to take our minds off of it . But it’s an endless roar . It’s like a force that doesn’t want to be reckon with….. and it’s won one battle I put my book down on my bedside table and shut the light off . And went under my covers a bit more . I’m sure no animals are running around tonight , their probably tucked themselves down deep in our woods waiting for it to pass like myself. My son said goodnight so I believe he is hoping to sleep and not have to 😂listen to it anymore . I’m getting there myself. My daughter is with her boyfriend I hope they drive safe , so Miss Abigail is downstairs in their place . My daughter said she would be fine she would settle on her bed and sleep. Oh my I think since I turned the light off the wind has gotten louder.. I can take a thunderstorm much better then wind. Our trees are being thrashed around out there and the house is making strange noises when it blows around along the house. Okay I think I’m going to cozy up a bit more under the blankets and try to sleep. 😕

Wednesday already..

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.🙂

Calmness..

It’s Tuesday and the morning was a quiet calm one . I woke to the sound of birds since we had our bedroom window open a bit for fresh air during the night . I scrolled through my Twitter , Instagram account , email and horoscope then decided it was time to head for a shower. Love walking out to a clean house . Went to get my coffee and enjoyed it with a little conversation with my son who was up and heading to the gym . Tomorrow he has a job interview . I’m crossing my fingers for him. My daughter still was sleeping . So after he left , the house was quiet. I am now enjoying my daytime show while the sun is slowly coming around to the front of the house to shine in . I think opening the slider door to the screen was a bit early it’s a bit cool . But I’m just craving the feeling to open the house up . This is the sun shining through my living room window the evening before it the photos . I love how the rays of the sun appears. in the photograph beautiful .

As I was getting some lunch I noticed my turkeys are back it’s hard to see them their blending into the woods a bit. It’s another sight of Spring! Soon we will be hearing the boys ( coyotes) that’s what I called them when my pup was alive … he would go crazy when he heard them so I called them the boys and told him it would be okay . They come so close to the house at night running by our bedroom window always reminds me of the wolves running along the polar express train in the Polar Express movie . At night when we are sitting out looking at stars you can spot them in our woods their eyes catching the light from our solar lawn lights. It’s a bit creepy but beautiful ( hahaha) I know two word s you wouldn’t expect together. It is though. I guess it’s time to get something done around here . Have a great day everyone.

Friday!

It was a an easy going Friday. Woke to a sound at first thinking it was a Army plane flying low over the house but then as I woke up more I realized we were witnessing our first thunderstorm ..reminding us that Spring was on its way. My daughter and I went out for a coffee run during the afternoon ,it was a nice ride and a good day for a frozen caramel coffee ,with the temps reaching the the 60’s it felt so good. We took our time driving home enjoying the windows open and listening to one of my daughters favorite songs .. I’ll admit I loved it as well . my son decided to stay back at home and tackle his room ,reorganizing and going through his Army bags . Finding a place in his closet . He had woke early wanting to get to the gym earlier so he could come home and take a run as well . It was takeout night so no cooking for me. Now my guys and I are in the living room watching a movie .. it’s a Army movie of course so you see what I’m doing. (Hahaha) at least my son is relaxing. My daughter is with her boyfriend . It’s still warm enough with the windows open a bit and I spotted the fox in our yard tonight but couldn’t get a good picture with him blending into the scenery. The sunset was gorgeous tonight . I was happy I was able to capture it. I hope everyone had a good day ! Well I guess I will enjoy the movie with my guys🙂

The Darkness..

It’s 10:30 at night and as I lay here in the darkness of my room it’s amazing how peaceful it is . My house is quiet but yet it’s not .I can hear my husband next to me softly sleeping , And then the sound of my son and his friends quietly talking and laughing down the hall. Occasionally hearing the door to the refrigerator opening and closing. ..Boys always hungry. Off in the distance I can hear a train on the tracks rumbling along through the night ,surprisingly over the sound of the fan my husband cannot sleep without and now I have now grown accustomed too, off and on I hear the furnace turn on and occasionally the sound of Miss Abigail jumping around downstairs hopefully not keeping my daughter awake . Playing with something she found. Soon we will hear the coyotes has they make their way through our woods at night and the cry of an owl going after it’s prey . The night some times so quiet and peaceful yet active and alive. As I drift off to sleep I am content . And feel blessed of this simple life my husband and I have made.

Photo Monday .. being Monday!

The photos earlier I posted were for photo Monday but posted of my weekend . Being Monday and how this day has turned out now heading towards evening I needed to recognized …the sun is out and warm and with it shining upon the fresh fallen snow it’s beautiful ..sadly the photo isn’t doing it justice but it’s beautiful any how.. it looks like diamonds sparkling . Loving it especially the fact that it’s 4:30 and still so bright and light out ..days getting longer.❤️
