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 .🙂
Today was spent with my daughter which was a pleasant surprise catching a late day lunch at one of our favorite places Panera Bread, it’s such a great relaxing place ,your not rushed to leave your table people spend a good amount of time enjoying good conversations with family , friends, some sit enjoy their food while on their laptop or tablet, or phone or with their favorite book.. For me it seemed more special because it’s been awhile enjoying lunch and spending a day in the city with her, after we went shopping and founds some good bargains my daughter and I walked away with several blouses each .always love a good sale.
It’s evening now and the kids will be out with friends , my hubby and I are relaxing on the deck there is all kinds of sounds as the evening turns into night. It’s peaceful. Soon the stars will be out. Time to sit back and enjoy.
Tonight was beautiful the sounds of the night was peaceful but eerie with the trains whistle echoing along the mountains and river that Is home to the tracks ,the moon shined above, the photo made it look like a fool moon almost there. The little colored lights are my solar power Lilly pads floating in our fountain . I’m shocked they still worked. We have had them for a couple of yrs the peepers where out in full force they have very vocal lately . I hope you enjoyed the photos and video , yes this is a part of my world . I love spending the evening and nights out on my deck it’s very soothing and it gives my overthinking mind a break 🙄
This evening I was able to sit outside on our deck with both my kids for a bit . This is a very rare moment. Never do I have both in the same place especially outside . The evening sky looked peaceful as the clouds move by fast. The air seem to cool down after being muggy through out the day . So enjoyed the moments while they lasted. I guess I will just take what I can get. ..
video /Photo should. Turn around when you click on arrow I loaded sideways ? this was earlier this evening when the sun was setting , the sky looks like it was on fire . The temps are and still are in the 70″s as 10:00 approaches . The peepers are still just as loud as in my video . I am wide awake . I should of sat outside but everyone else has settled in and sometimes sitting out by myself is creepy …. yes I’m a scaredy cat as they say 🙂 I’m always hearing something in the woods. So I’m settled in bed with the fan blasting for air it’s hot in the house. The weekend will be back to the normal temps for this time of yr the 60″s and my hubby won’t have work so he can sit outside with me
. Love looking at the stars and the planets. It’s so peaceful looking. Up and hoping you spot a falling star. My son will not sit out and just look at the sky he has been this way since he was a child .I think the sky gives him a feeling of the unknown . It makes him uncomfortable . He will only sit out for bonfires and fireworks where he is focusing on them. My daughter can sit out for hours just looking at the sky or listening to see what she can hear .my hubby and her love to see eyes staring back at us from the woods …hahaha yeah it’s true usually a fox or a coyote ( the boys) their eyes reflecting off the solar lights that surround our fountain in the flowerbed. I’m so wide awake hmm this could make for along night. I never sleep well in the summer and nights are usually my favorite time of the summer . Strange perhaps but it’s true I feel more awake it’s a bit cooler and it’s just peaceful. Yes makes for rough morning but you can win them all 🙂 tomorrow their predicting thunderstorms this will be nice I love thunderstorms . My hubby does not . If there at night my son will just sleep through them . My daughter and I will sit in the living room a bit by the widow a watch the lightening . Yes a sky thing again . Well the time is ticking away and I should say my nighttime prayers while I’m awake sometimes they help me fall asleep saying them because it relaxes me . So goodnight everyone.❤️
Hi Everyone it’s Monday night this day went by as fast as the weekend. It was a nice morning sitting at our kitchen table enjoying my coffee with both my kids . Chatting about whatever came up. It was a nice moment then my son left for school and my daughter and I went about the house cleaning what needed to be attend too. Then we got ready to go to the garage to see about some tires for her car and after she treated me to a coffee . We sat and chatted for awhile in a place some people may find uncomfortable , unusual , we have always found it peaceful quiet most defiantly quiet unless it’s a windy day and you can hear the wind blowing the trees overhead or if it’s warm and the car windows are down you feel the slight breeze touch your face gently or feel the warmth of the sun with the beautiful sky above . Okay I will say where it is the cemetery .. yes I said the cemetery there’s no one to judge you , no traffic .. and our love ones are there so we go there and check on things but stay and chat ,laugh which I think our love ones would not have a problem with. . Like I said no one to judge you there. Yes there are other places we have but this is just one of them and where we went today. It’s peaceful . Do you have an unusual place you find peaceful?
There is not many of these covered bridges anymore this one is located where I grew up. when I was a little girl it was open to vehicles by the time I became a teenager they closed it due to it’s unsafe conditions the town decided to close it because they did not have the funds to repair it sadly .,, so now it just sits there lonely except for the comfort of the river flowing gently beneath or the occasional people who would walk through or just sit and enjoy the peaceful sound of the river . This was one of the first places where I started my first journal and I could peacefully write at times while I sat and wrote the wind would go through its thin aged wood making a creaking sound sometime it was a bit creepy especially when you where by yourself I still get a chill when I think back . I love that bridge it holds so many memories for me and many others. I hope you enjoy my Photo for this week.
