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.
It’s after midnight on a Thursday night well now Friday .. just finish reading …well could of read a bit more but I’m thinking time to get some sleep. I just wanted to post the photo I had taken with the sun setting over the mountain from our deck . It was absolutely beautiful and up lifting. I hope all of you enjoy it.
Can’t win with this weather just get adapted to the cold and it feels good and Fall feels like it’s here…then wake up this morning and the air is so sticky and thick ughh … the humidity snuck back in during the night . So now air conditioner is on and it feels like July again . My daughter and I took a ride she wanted to see if any leaves had changed , in some places but not much or pretty . I’m thinking this isn’t going to be a good foliage year . The ride was nice though on the back country roads it was a pleasant peaceful ride enjoying some good chatting and laughing time with my daughter . Now it’s the evening we were watching Friends episodes which are always funny but a storm is coming in and we lost tv for now. I guess it’s time to read my book as my daughter gets ready to settle down in her place for her show American horror stories to come on , hopefully the storm will stop soon so the tv works. Ok time for my book.
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. ..
