After a busy Sunday morning with a family gathering . It’s now mid afternoon and sitting out on my deck with my book in hand. Nice to have some cooler weather to sit out side and enjoy some reading .Let’s see how much I can get read today🙂 The weather is perfect there is a nice breeze. The humidity has vanished … So I am taken advantage of it. Late night on my phone with a friend who has recently lost their wife . He has has been finding comfort in talking to me about her. I let him just talk on and reassure him he will get through this. It’s been a strange summer. I know I have said this in past posts but now it’s even more strange… people are talking to me about things . I guess they think of me as a good listener. I do not mind . I alway like to help people . Just sad what he’s going through. He will start back up on his work routine this week so I think the chats will calm down. Which I think being busy will be a good thing. As I sit here reading I can here noises in our woods I believe it’s acorns falling . It’s the strangest sound. I’m sure the squirrels are gathering them up already . It’s been a very hot humid summer on the days it’s felt like it but a short one with it being the first week in August and the temps are now cooling down. The weekend nights have been really cool and so the windows have been able to stay open . I laugh because I have been wanting to have the windows open at night and now I can and there is this annoying cricket outside mine and my daughters bedroom window that chirps all night 🙄 can’t win (hahaha) it’s keeping my daughter up as well. Okay time to get back to my book. Have great rest of the day or night depending where you are.
It’s a sunny warm day . Shall I add quiet into it? it’s always how it is..enjoying sometime on the deck taking in the beautiful sun. After the oddest thing this morning .. I’m still laughing about it. Telling my daughter about it as she enjoyed her morning coffee with me before she went to work .I had her Keeling over in laughter. Let me start with if you read my past posts I have stated, posted photos of the wild turkeys in my yard. Well this Spring there has.. is an abundance of them roaming throughout our woods, the front and back yard. Every morning sometimes in the after noon but for the most part morning and evening. Anyways so I came out of the shower wrapping myself in a towel and straight ahead of me there is a small window that faces the back of the house into the woods so no one is going to see me plus the screen is tinted so it makes it look just dark looking in ..well I look out and there looking in at a little distance has their neck stretched out and so I’m basically eye to eye with a turkey 🙄 now he can’t see me (hahaha) not worried but it’s the fact it’s staring straight at me . I think it heard the shower running. I just shook my head and called out to it …what are you looking at ? And the thing just walked away . My daughter as I’m telling her said well I wondered who you were talking to I did hear you say something and I knew it wasn’t me you were talking to because you never knew I was upstairs. What do you know as I’m sitting out here it’s 5:30 in the evening. Yes started writing this earlier when the sun was shining and it was warm but now the clouds are moving in blocking the sun a bit making it a little cool out . I’ve had to keep stopping to write this between phone calls , my son coming home asking me questions my daughter texting me, and then my hubby coming home talking as well . Not quiet any more. 🙂 And as I’m sitting here the turkeys have made their way back into our yard taking their evening stroll through . And not caring that I’m sitting out here. Crazy birds.
Today it felt like Fall the air was fresh crisp and cool .. the sun was out but it was just perfect after finishing things around the house and pulling myself away from the news or I would get more disgusted then I already was .. what’s going on lately in politics is a bit too much . I do not talk politics on social media sites I follow or to anyone but my family my husband , kids , the rest of the family no. So not here on my blog as well …with that said it was a beautiful day my kids off doing their own thing so it was a quiet afternoon I took advantage of the nice weather and enjoyed sometime outside. . Tonight enjoying a hot cup of hot chocolate since it’s a cool night and I’m feeling cold . I enjoyed some adult coloring also while chatting with my husband since the night was as quiet as the afternoon was. Just Miss Abigail roaming around the house making noice. Now hubby is watching some football and I think iI will watch with him and my son who just happened to walk through the door and sat now .. I will take the moment when I can .good night everyone.
I woke early to the sound of my son and his friend in the kitchen . I was shocked it was morning after reading my book before bed and shutting the light off around 11 ,I fell asleep quick . This is the earliest I’ve fallen to sleep in a month. No thinking well over thinking I told myself the day before I wouldn’t do that I’m such a thinker so this is going to be a challenge . I kept myself happily busy did things that needed to be done then I relaxed enjoyed my soapy and settled with a afternoon coffee and finished my page I was working on in my adult coloring book. Anyways Morning was. here so after hearing my sons friend leave I jumped in the shower and then for a cup of coffee ,my son chatted with me as I enjoyed my coffee so that was nice . My daughter comes home today after being away for 3days with her Grandmother at the beach. Miss Abigail will be happy to see her. She has been my little buddy following me through the house as I was getting things done.
Happy to say it’s the 1st day in about 2weeks that I could shut off the air and open windows. Been sitting outside reading my book while Miss Abigail sits in the window watching me .🙂 It feels good to be able to sit outside and not feel hot. Soon my daughter will be here she texted me that she was grabbing us pumpkin spiced coffee on her way home and would be here soon .. mine decaf since it’s now 4 in the afternoon. Can’t wait . My son is off on a bike ride with some friends in the nearby town bike trails . So do not expect him home anytime soon. I guess I will enjoy some more of my book before my daughter arrives to chat with me about her trip . 🙂
It’s late morning enjoying my coffee outside , it’s beautiful out , a fresh breeze blowing through the trees the humidity has passed . Birthdays are finished this summer and less then a week school and colleges will start up again . My daughter still sleeping enjoying her days off . My son just getting home from a early mountain race with a buddy of his and now showered and taking in a nap. Hubby is happily puttering around the yard for once, since all the rain has put things on hold so everything is over grown. It feels like a calm and peaceful day after a nice but busy weekend. My hubby is off for the week . Not doing anything special maybe some day trips and my hubby and son may take hike together. In Oct we are thinking of going to Maine after my son leaves for Basic Training and my daughter will stay and watch the house with Miss Abigail and a friend for a couple of days. So for now It’s a nice mental and physical break for him with all the long hours of work he has put in this summer . The leaves are slowly turning but not very pretty all the rain has made the spotty and discolored in an unpleasant way… hopefully this will change and will have a good foliage this Fall. Time to get off here and enjoy my swing a bit and enjoy the sound of the wind and the birds .🙂
Ahhh finally after two weeks of torrential rain and unbearable heat the skies have cleared to a beautiful blue. The sun is out and the wind blowing feels good. Back from my errand in Town and now sitting on my swing on our deck about to read .
Woke early after going to bed at a decent time.. grabbed my cup of coffee and sat out on the deck. It’s a beautiful Monday morning the blue sky is amazing the temps are perfect . Everyone is off to work ,in between the dishwasher and hearing the neighbors in the near by woods hammering on something I can hear the birds and crickets in our woods . Not much going on this week hubby working long days kids working, later when my son gets home will go to the garage and get a new tire for my subie he’s been driving .ugh on Saturday came home from work with the spare doughnut on ,ran over a nail or something , strong enough to puncture a whole in the tire. Always something . For now just waiting for dishwasher and laundry to be done. It’s nice to have some time on the deck . By Friday no one will not want to be on it when the temps hit 90 and our deck feels like it’s over 100 so enjoying it while it’s comfortable. I think it’s time to finish things up around here have a good day everyone.
