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.
Why do I write? I believe it’s like a runner who loves to run it’s a need a drive . It’s something that your body craves when it discovers it just like how someones mind craves to write words down on paper that the mind wants to express,. and likes the feeling of freedom it gives them . Runners run to also relieve stress and clears their mind, same as it does for a writer . Now the question is WHY do I write? well all that I have stated but it’s more then that I have been writing since I was a teenager I can’t count the amount of Journals I have had and then the endless amount of poems I’ve written thoughts that are in my head. When your a teenager my favorite place to take a notebook and pen and write was an old abandon covered bridge, listening to the walls of the old wood creak as the wind would blow through those warn down walls and the beautiful sound of the the stream was a perfect place. I love the satisfaction of it .After I started a family I got busy with them and writing went to the side a bit. Off and on if I had a moment I would write but not as much as I wanted . I have chronic hip issues and I cannot run to relieve my stress so writing helps a lot and now with my kids growing up my daughter an adult now and my son a teenager and another yr to graduate High school I have the time now and do I need this more then ever.
I started this blog about a yr ago and it’s about my life with my family everyday life going on’s the stresses of having kids teenagers writing about my other interests .To some who read this will probably get board and just pass by it and to some may like it for them thank you. believe me I am not writing this blog for a ton of views yes it would be nice it feels good when I see the likes but my simple little issues are not for everyone and I know that, but at times it does hurt when I do not get a like and I doubt myself and I question everything I wrote…yes my grammar is not up to date. the writing structure needs to be worked on but sadly I just get on here and just write what come out of my thoughts and really do not thing about it. but I do know I love all my followers and appreciate them and me and read my post. I try to as well. So once again a big THANK YOU!
