Calmness..

It’s Tuesday and the morning was a quiet calm one . I woke to the sound of birds since we had our bedroom window open a bit for fresh air during the night . I scrolled through my Twitter , Instagram account , email and horoscope then decided it was time to head for a shower. Love walking out to a clean house . Went to get my coffee and enjoyed it with a little conversation with my son who was up and heading to the gym . Tomorrow he has a job interview . I’m crossing my fingers for him. My daughter still was sleeping . So after he left , the house was quiet. I am now enjoying my daytime show while the sun is slowly coming around to the front of the house to shine in . I think opening the slider door to the screen was a bit early it’s a bit cool . But I’m just craving the feeling to open the house up . This is the sun shining through my living room window the evening before it the photos . I love how the rays of the sun appears. in the photograph beautiful .

As I was getting some lunch I noticed my turkeys are back it’s hard to see them their blending into the woods a bit. It’s another sight of Spring! Soon we will be hearing the boys ( coyotes) that’s what I called them when my pup was alive … he would go crazy when he heard them so I called them the boys and told him it would be okay . They come so close to the house at night running by our bedroom window always reminds me of the wolves running along the polar express train in the Polar Express movie . At night when we are sitting out looking at stars you can spot them in our woods their eyes catching the light from our solar lawn lights. It’s a bit creepy but beautiful ( hahaha) I know two word s you wouldn’t expect together. It is though. I guess it’s time to get something done around here . Have a great day everyone.

First day of Spring!

It’s The first day of Spring . The sun is shining and it’s not too bad temp wise. I cleaned up some of the kitchen then settled in front of the tv catching up once again with the morning news and my cup of coffee or two … then went outside to catch some sun going on the deck for a bit to feel the sun on my face. I capture some pics while I was out there. Now I’m back in and on Miss Abigail patrol … ughh she never liked couches before . But now with this new used leather/ vinyl. sectional so better condition then my old couch is exhausting .. she wants to be on it but her claws … so like I posted found a cover and hoping it comes in sooner then their predicting , next week. I do not know how to keep her off of it especially while we are not all home. Well she can stay downstairs in my daughter and her place but she’s had such freedom to the whole house . But so be it it’s what will have to be . The cover should protect it from her claws .. thick enough. It just needs to arrive. Right now I manage to get her in her chair an old rocking chair that she loves or loved … for now. Leftovers tonight .. love those nights just as much as take out . My hubby may not like it but hmm ..it’s food🙂 and there is a lot leftover since it was only my hubby and I who ate it. Thinking my daughter was going to be home but she went out with a friend. Well time to do something’s I’ve been neglecting . 🙂

Melting…

Today I manage to wake a bit earlier. And get myself out of the house before my son actually woke . I went mudding out of our driveway . Sliding here and there. Yes it’s mud season in New England. The snow is melting making the snow not so pretty looking anymore mixed with the mud a white color car is not a good color for my driveway. I drove into town as the sun beat down into the car warming it . I arrived at the Post Office to collect our mail and looked at my car that was caked with mud all around the tires … I wondered what was making a flapping noises as I was driving I believe it was the mud flying off the tires🙄 after driving through town taking in our quiet little town . I can see people sitting at the pharmacy /soda bar enjoying coffee and chatting. People walking in and out of our little market. With bags of food. I headed home . As I walked into the house I was greeted by my awaken son. Blending up his protein drink he loves so much. I gave him a hug since he had some good news that came in the mail . One of the several colleges he applied to came back congratulating him to their College. Not his top choice …..he’s still waiting to hear . BUT was happy to see the big envelope with the congrats all over it. He said he was on the right track. And I’m happy to say he did his laundry ! ( hahaha) yes I was for the most part doing it before Basic but those days are over. That I’m defiantly not sad about.? Because it was almost in the 50’s I hurried with getting the Shepard’s pie made for dinner so I could go out on the deck and absorb some sun. Then came back into watch some of my General hospital …. it’s so good right now I wanted to see what was going on. The Shepard’s pie I think came out good everyone ate it including my son who is on his own food program. My daughter after working her shift came home and helped herself to a plate and finished it all. Stating it was filling. I believe she enjoyed it.

It’s 9:30 at night now after the beautiful evening sunset which I give the credit to my daughter for captioning it . The guys are asleep . My daughter and Miss Abigail getting ready to head downstairs to their place. We watched some of the I Heart Radio Awards on tv . Seeing the performers we wanted we are done with it now . Oh the music these days . I really do not understand how they are famous…. some are good like the ones I stated my daughter and I enjoyed . But the rest oh boy.. now we do the task of shutting everything off .. the tv , lights , dryer will shut it’s self down when it’s done. Hopefully I can sleep . I’m wide awake . Wish me luck.

Super Bowl !

Today is Super Bowl Sunday!watching the pre shows hubby is enjoying a beer and nacho’s while the Chili is simmering in the crockpot the house smells delicious the sun is shining nice and bright into the house love when I can open the front door it just makes the realization that Spring is coming🙂, made a cake now just need to make my buttercream frosting , always taste good after eating chili , I have wings but thinking we are good. Unless my daughter wants them when she arrives home from work. I’ve spent some time out on my deck snapping pics for my son and sending them to him he loves seeing pics of home. After I just leaned on the rail closed my eyes and let the sun shine on my face ahh the feeling was amazing. I really can’t say how long I stood there . It was nice to be outside. The breeze picked up sending a bit of a chill my way I decided it was time to head inside . My hubby and I are now laughing at some of the commercials already . And the interviews of the football players. Rams and the Patriots two great teams. This will be fun! The other part I look forward to is the Puppy Bowl. Defiantly need to watch them. It’s nice the pups that play are all up for adoption so it’s gets them some coverage . To find a forever home. I think it’s time to make my frosting soon the chili will be ready . Good my stomach is growling .🙂

Here we go again ..

Woke early to the sound of my hubby plowing well earlier then that but I’ll get to that after… anyways hearing the tractor I assumed we got more snow then predicted. I could see the sun coming through the side of the closed shades , ahh at least the sun was out so that’s good but knowing it wouldn’t warm up much if anything I’m hearing we will be in the -6 by tonight into Thursday. Here we go again these cold spells I believe are worse then the snow. My body is feeling the cold coming in I’m feeling a bit stiff. on my second cup of coffee I know it will not help but taste good (hahah) this afternoon it will change to a cup of decaf tea, while I watch my daytime shows. Getting back to waking up earlier … we’ll I didn’t talk to my son much last night I thought I would give him a break since the last few nights he was responding with one word answers finding out that after class and his chow time he was at the gym .. hmm why didn’t he just tell me that . 🙄 so last night if he texted then I would respond if not then I knew he was busy. My hubby giving in texted him and after awhile my son responded with a hi and then my hubby said we didn’t want to bother you but just wanted to say hi . Catching my hubby I just shook my head . In good humor tho my son responded with just relaxing doing nothing … ughh can’t win . I still let him be thinking if he wanted to chat with me he would since my hubby was getting one word answers after a bit. I can be such a mother hen I wanted to back off a bit hahaha I’m sure you know this about me reading my posts🙂and no he didn’t text me . But it was all good . My hubby and I were cold we decided to settle in our room him watching tv and playing a game on his phone while I tried to read yes tried … cannot get into the book I’m reading ,Milkman and no hope of getting to the library today I’m hoping when my daughter gets home from her boyfriends she may have a book I can borrow . Speaking of that ..she stayed at his house was going to come home but when going out to warm her car up she said the snow was coming down so fast and more then when they arrived there and his vehicle at the garage getting fixed she drove him home because of worrying about getting snowed in here well she got snowed in there . Which I’m happy she decided to stay there ,he lives at home while he saves up a bit more like my daughter is doing and it’s basically a big mountain he lives upon so their at a higher elevation so they tend to get more snow. The thought of her driving down the mountain in the snow at night by herself was not a thought I wanted to think of and that being said we had her kitty well cat , with us and being that there was nothing on tv and my book just bored me and no text from my son . I fell asleep at 10 . I couldn’t believe it so early for me, until I woke at 3 thinking it was much later then that I wanted to cry hahaha , not literally 🙂 then I knew why Miss Abigail was scratching on our bed jumping up on the bed pawing at my hubby’s face (hahaha) he cant win if it isn’t a toilet paper roll ( need to read my post on that) it’s the cat. After trying to get her down and settle he woke . I was like oh great she has him up since he walked out to the kitchen . I settled under the covers more to find him coming back telling me he was just checking to see how much snow we got. Then that’s when I woke to him plowing

I grabbed my phone that was on my bedside table checking to see if my daughter texted nothing but a text from my son stating that he forgot to tell me last night that he received the book I had sent to him hmm.. I had a feeling if I didn’t text him last night I would get a text of some sort in the morning my instinct wasn’t to far off he says he knows I need him are his words he has stated many times but I think he needs me haha yeah we are a lot alike 🙄 . That was good to know tho that he received his book now he will be able to enjoy it. It’s 11:30 and I’m still enjoying my coffee after cleaning up the kitchen after breakfast . The washing machine is ready to go figuring do a load today then running it tomorrow being so cold may not be a good idea. The house is pretty much clean . My daughter isn’t home yet hope she isn’t stuck up their her cat is wandering all over the house ,I’m thinking she’s getting antsy for her to come home. Supper is going to be leftovers tonight and random things if no one wants the leftovers , we defiantly will not starve . Thinking spaghetti and meatballs and sausage will be good for tomorrow when the temps dip even more. I am not going to go out in this …. with hearing about a lot of people including my bestie falling on the ice this week I’m not pushing it. Well time to run the washer find some lunch and chat with my hubby. Have a good day everyone. Keep warm all of you who are getting affected due to the polar vortex .
