It was a rainy soggy humid day. Even though the sun came out for a bit it didn’t do much to dry everything up before the rain came back in in many strains.. My hubby suffering from a cold as well as my daughter and now I feel I am but desperately hoping it’s allergies . I took advantage of the rainy day to finish reading my book as my hubby napped on the couch and my daughter napped down in her place until she had to go to work later in the day as well as my son. So both of my kids at work still . It’s 8:30 at night and I have finished looking for Alaska . Such a good book. John Green has such a way with his words . His writing is so different from other authors . His books are just unique . It’s the only word I can come up with to describe them. If only he wrote more. Now on to my next read The Road by Cormac McCarthy hoping I will enjoy it . I’ll keep you posted how I’m doing with it and if I’m enjoying it.
The air is still warm and sticky and the peepers are so loud echoing through the house. My kids won’t arrive home until 9 and 10 . I think I will start on this next book and see how far I get until they get home or my eyes get to heavy to read . In between sneezing … oh so much tissue used today.. have a good night everyone.
Saturday came as fast as it went . My son won two medals with his track team and then decided after to get together with a couple of his buddies so my hubby dropped him off at his car and hubby came home, as soon as he walked in the door I noticed right off he looked like a lobster , he was so sun burned on his face and arms . He said he would go good shopping with me so we left so he could come home and relax . Thankfully it didn’t take long. Hours later my son arrived just as sunburned but wet… him and his buddies decided it would be a good idea to jump in the river . He said it was shockingly cold . Oh I believe it the ice on the rivers just finally melted about a week ago so yes it may have been warm out but the rivers are not ready for visitors. Boys! 🙄
It’s night now the peepers are out and are making the noises they do best . Air is warm but with a slight cool breeze blowing in so lightly the fresh air through our open windows.The moon is full so the woods are lit up . The turkeys that was in the yard earlier as moved on until tomorrow hey come back everyday till Fall is here.we are settled in bed watching a movie lone Survivor ,hmm ..yeah just what a mom wants to see who’s son wants to do this… speaking of my son he is fast asleep after getting up at 6 this morning to get ready for his race and after a swim and the sunburn . He looked exhausted and in know mood for small talk just made his food showered and said a goodnight. Miss Abigail is doing laps up and down the hallway I wonder if my son can hear the thumping of her paws against the wood floor. . The full moon is helping her with this 🙂. Love the sound of the peepers at night . To settle your mind and let you drift off to sleep. Well it will be nice to hear Better after the movies over.. I guess I will finish watching then get some sleep . Good night everyone.
Aww it’s Friday , can’t complain wasn’t a bad week actually very pleasant. Monday was a holiday so we let the rain come down and skipped having a cookout and went out to eat . then it was My Son’s Track banquet which started off pretty scary as they where predicting severe thunderstorms we where driving right into it with my semi new white yes white car getting hit by quarter size hail.. we let my son drive because it was at the coaches new house he knew the way and I let my husband sit up in front to help him just in case well as I was having a major freak out sorry can’t think of another way to explain what I was feeling or doing as the hail just shattered down on my car and I’m trying to block my ears and mind of what my car would look like after My son pulled off the road to a logging road under a tree to protect it a bit the wind was blowing so bad and it was so dark the scene was like out of a movie. luckily the storm passed and car was fine covered in leaves and dirt but that was do able . So we got to the banquet safely and it was fun and sad at the same time seeing the seniors say goodbye we will miss those runners especially my son ..Then Thursday night my daughter and I sat out on our deck under the star’s and enjoyed the peepers as well . Tonight ..Friday it’s a chilly one and my husband has to work on Saturday and my son will be at the mountain bike park early practicing for his down hill race on Sunday which is scaring excuse my language but it’s scaring the hell out of me I will be there to watch and will be holding my breath till he is safely down that mountain ..but for now settled in on this Friday night under our covers watching television. Watching repeat of America’s Got Talent showing it for people who missed the 1st night so enjoying that again. Well everyone have a good night.
Sitting on our deck with my daughter a bit of a chill in the air but it’s not keeping the peepers from Making there beautiful music. The moon is a crescent shape but very bright..The first star is out so I must make a wish……. it’s a beautiful night after last night’s hail storm …Yes the weather is crazy Mother Nature at her best. Well going to enjoy have a goodnight everyone ..hopefully the boy’s (coyotes) do not decided to appear will see who makes it inside 1st hahaha.
Tonight I have this strange feeling , almost an uneasy feeling maybe its because the temps have dropped dramaticlly so one I’m freezing and its making my head feel out of it .or maybe it was the the little talk my son and I had and it did not turn out to well ..so it not sitting well with me. …but that is for another day…anyways we had the living room window open a bit for Miss Abagail she loves looking out at night and listening to the peepers are they loud tonight they have been half the day ..isn’t that unusual for them to be out during the day? My husband and I where relaxing in the living room watching TV when we both looked at one another and he turned the TV down. My husband was like did you hear that It was a whistle sound okay as much as I did not want to agree I did it was so eerie. I told him the other night while we where sleeping well he was I was trying too I heard that same noise at first I thought it was him he can make some weird noises in his sleep he laughed at the remark. but it wasn’t when I heard it again It sent chills up my spine and I pulled the covers up closer to my head,,,, but then it was gone .I hate night sounds especially when your house is surrounded by woods. Does anyone know if there is a bird or animal that makes that strange whistle noise at night. It’s just so unusual for us we have never heard that before.
What a beautiful 3 day weekend. My Monday Photo reflects my weekend. beautiful weather and night so we broke out the fire pit and had a fire and enjoyed out first taste of s,mores for the 2016 spring /summer season and enjoyed every bite . I personally love the roasted marshmallows . My daughter saw a fallen star. and made a wish ..you have to make a wish. the moon was out and amazingly bright casting shadows through out our yard helping my pups as you see to keep a loyal watchful eye out for the night critters in which he did spot and we had to stop him, love when he lays his eyes on something and does the pointing position. We do not know what he saw we just saw the shadow of something run off probably just a fox. they come around at this time. We stayed out till midnight the sound of the crackling of the fire and the sound of the peepers in the distance towards the swamp near our home was relaxing. This is the best time of the year in my book.
So it’s a 3 day weekend and the weather is gorgeous! also the start of April vacation for my son. so this week he has off and has already started with doing things…never a dull moment with him. He left on Saturday evening with friends for Boston to watch the Boston Marathon. Him and his friends are runners for their school they do indoor and outdoor track and field and cross country. Him and his friends have ran in a couple of local races in our town , this will be fun for them to be in Boston and watch the race. a great experience for them I keep checking in on him yes that’s what mothers do…. I am not overly checking in but just here and there. I am trying to keep myself busy but with this weather it’s not working I am sitting on my porch swing and soaking in the sun. The house is clean enough and no where to go. My daughter is working but has told her dad and I that she is bringing home s’mores goodies so we will start a fire in our fire pit and enjoy some s’mores then when here boyfriend gets out later tonight they can enjoy on their own and put it it out after. so now it begins nights out by the fire ,looking at stars sleeping with windows open …love!!!! and my Son running with friends ..crazy. but my favorite time of year.
