This changing world …

Tonights sky driving into town with my daughter, yes my daughter took the photo. We reached the 70’s today and at this moment at 7 this evening it’s in the 60″s but as you see , the sky is showing something coming . The weathermen are saying snow our way, in the lower towns not up in the mountains/ sleet freezing rain …will see you never know this time of year especially with this changing climate is as changeable as our society the talks at the capital with our President on protecting our kids at school after the newest School shooting in Florida … so heartbreaking as I listen to the students and parents talk about it , it brought tears to my eyes. I do believe it’s not only a gun problem we need to raise awareness of ” see something say something”‘ we need to be aware of someone’s suffering and help them or tell someone they need help . So many things going on that I won’t even begin to talk about .Then to hear that Evangelist Billy Graham had passed today was another big topic .. Never knew much about him but what I heard today he made many people feel good about themselves and was a very strong believer in God . He changed a lot of life’s with his words.

sitting here in my recliner as my hubby is laying on the couch as Miss Abigail is pacing around the house I think she feels a storm coming . The house is quiet except for the sound of the tv showing the Winter Olympics . Kids are out daughter with her boyfriend and my son with his buddies since Their team run during the late afternoon . I dropped him off in town with his team then went and grabbed my coffee needed a coffee fix hahaha peanut butter flavor a bit different taste not bad but I do not think I will get another one. It was nice getting out of the house and driving with the windows down and the radio blaring out the good ol 80’s music, thanks to my son having it on and liking 80’s music to get his Adrenalin pumping for their run and mom wishing she was on the highway hahaha I know not good but it was nice to feel like myself again .. back in the day 🙂 a life young and daring hmm .. wonder where my son gets it 🤔 I’m just happy he enjoys the music loud in the car. My daughter does not 🙂 Well time to shut Lights down go settle in bed hubby needs to sleep for work and I will adult color for a bit. Yes until the kids arrive home ❤️

Saturday🙂

It’s Saturday food shopping is done with my hubby’s help have all our treats for Sunday’s Super Bowl so now it’s going to be a stay in kind of weekend . As you can see the sun is shining away ,this photo is taken inside through my glass storm door it’s so warm with it beating on me actually feels a bit warm but nice . I am absorbing the suns warmth for as long as it keeps me warm…ahhh the sun feels great . If its too cold outside to enjoy sit in front of a window or glass door it works.🙂

Keep with it.

Hi everyone so I’m on day 2 Yes day of not checking in on my son hoping he will be responsible if I back off you will understand if you read my last posts . So last night I kept the cell aside and kept on reading eventually my over thinking mind took a rest and I happily got into my book and it was so relaxing and nice . So yeah me of keeping it going and my son came home within 15 mins of writing my post. He told his dad and I how the basketball game was then he said goodnight and I went back to my book. So today it’s 32 out and it feels good. I open the widows a crack for a bit to get some fresh air in and Miss Abigail loved it as well. Supper is made and ready to go into the oven Shepard’s pie . Now having some lunch and watching my soap and then off to the grocery store funnn…not🙂 but things we sadly need . Well time to get going . Have a great day everyone.

Weekends

weekends why do they have to go by so fast.  It was nice not having any set plans just whatever came up or didn’t was nice most of the weekend was pretty much spent inside keeping warm and  for the most part we all where at home,my daughter is sick and has a notice to stay out of work for several days so she laid around and read and watched movies with me and slept my poor daughter winter is not her friend she gets sick so much during this time ,we both believe she should of had her tonsils out but everyone she saw said no there fine and now she gets the worst sore throats   .I think this time around we may have to push it more but now she is older and risk factor is not good . We will  have to talk to the doctors about this more. My son was in and out when he was out he came home earlier and then spent it in his room .life of a teenager. No work for him on saturday  was scheduled for night skiing instructor but they closed due of the wind chill then today he was not schedule , now he is at his girlfriends and I’m trying to not worry and check in with him there is school tomorrow so he will be home at a decent time. It’s just where his girlfriend lives is not an easy drive . But can’t think about it. Nope ….not coloring watching The Golden Globe Awards  with my hubby and my daughter . All in black tonight the actresses and actors for sexual harassment awareness . A topic I won’t get started with but yes applauding them wearing their black. Im hoping he is home soon… Okay I know don’t think about it 😞 One track mind sorry…. .

Three day weekend….

Sorry no Monday Photo just realized it was Monday …these three day weekends it was Memorial Day in my part of  the world. So it threw me with the week starting already …it was a quiet one this yr no barbeque with the rain that we had off and on  but was able to get to the cemetery to put flowers at my parents stone and to enjoy the  long weekend with my husband and daughter and a little bit with my son….. but that part is for another time.. My husband cleared out our basement from all its clutter and we have started getting our summer things out next weekend we will fix our fire pit which had a rough winter ..so we can enjoy some bonfires and tasty smores  under the stars..Oh and some wine. Well getting late going to go settle have a goodnight everyone.

Photo Monday!

This is my Photo for  Photo Monday the picture looks a bit tattered hahaha  yes it’s the original games very happily well used . My husband and I use to play Yahtzee all the time before we had kid’s  and when they would finally settle down for the night when they where little . Now Uno we played a lot with kids they loved it .Actually my Son still enjoys it he plays it when his friends come over and their sick of being on their phones which I love ! . Friday night it was just my Son and I home which was a rare occurrence  hahaha well for about an hr or so and we played Uno it was a nice moment. this is what I treasure and hold in my heart moments like this, just spontaneous . Then over the brutally cold weekend my husband and I played Yahtzee for the first time in yrs so that was another moment and now with the big 2017 Blizzard coming our way tomorrow morning   my husband is home  and my Daughter should be maybe I can gt her to play. My Son of course will be going to friends tonight since school is cancelled already and sleepover and be snowed in with some friends ….teenagers .  I must say these games just get so neglected this day in time with all the technology that has taken over, it’s nice to be unplugged for awhile and enjoy what we grew up on . I am so happy my kids where born in the time board games where the in thing so they still can enjoy them.  One of the other board games that we enjoyed was scrabble . Need to play that some time . Well enjoy my picture and if you have a favorite game let me know send me a comment back would love to know.20170313_190303

Normalcy…..

Finally back on here..after a week of  total chaos and hopefully now some normalcy . In the past 5months I have felt this sense of peacefulness contentment. I finally threw  caution to the wind and said I need to let go of trying to be a perfect mother and let them grow  with guidence ..my Son is independent loves being with his friends playing his sport and he knows his priorities and when he sways from that path I pull him in and my Daughter she is an adult and her and I are in a good place   she has here friends making new ones and her work . My husband and I are learning to be just us again before kids and I think I am handling it better then him. he is so use to us all constantly together or around lets say he hates change so the kids doing their own  thing and I more into things I enjoy doing again is throwing him …I thought it would be harder for me but I am more open minded and I do not have parents telling me like he has how things should be …ughh and after my last blog if you read he got hurt at work thank  god he is fine and doing a lot better and back to work . His parents thinking I am not doing enough getting back in our business my aurora of my peacefulness has vanished and been place with self doubt angry and I thought I got past this years ago. So now I am trying to get back to this peacefulness and contentment and not listening to them ….not very easy . It’s hard when people judge you just because you do not follow their ways or agree. I am thankful for this week being back to normal my daughter and I went out to a nice relaxing lunch at our favorite place, Panera Bread the best . and then we enjoyed a s’mores frappuccino from Starbucks  so delicious we figured we had a light lunch we would enjoy this.  Then we headed to my son ‘s school to watch his meet such a nice ending to the day. oh and yes they won!  my  son came in 2nd place in the hurdles and 2nd in 2nd race. So proud of him.
