Laid back Tues…

Woke feeling a bit under the weather I laid in bed for a bit. Eventually I found myself to a quick shower and a cup of coffee. I decided to call the Dr . And went in into see her. While filling a prescription for an antibiotic I did a few small errands as well and headed home . I had a UTI so I was told to take the medication and relax no activities . Not being able to focus on a book I turned on my laptop got comfortable in the recliner and caught up on tv shows I have been wanting to do for awhile. And with Sept being the time the new seasons begin with shows I thought this was the perfect opportunity. Family had to offend for themself for supper . I did what I was told sat back and relaxed and caught up. Such a nice feeling. I caught up on A million little things . Love this show but time had gotten away from me so I kept missing all the episodes. Im happy to say I just finished and ready for the new season to come back. Wow such a cliff hanger . Now I remember why I love this show so much. My next episodes to catch up on will start tomorrow . Orange is a new black . This one could take awhile. Now I’m sitting here in the darkness with just the sound of the crickets echoing from the open door. Everyone is in bed already my daughter tho is out with her boyfriend . The house is quiet except yes the sound of the crickets . It’s a peaceful feeling. I could almost just drift off to sleep . Soon I will head to bed but for now I’m thinking of just taking this moment for myself and enjoy… why not..

New read and some downtime …

Hi everyone it’s been almost a week of not posting. I’ve been enjoying a new book .Thanks Diane! loving it so much. As well as some downtime .. I think the ac’s running so much this summer has done my sinus’s in.. soon I believe I will need to go to the Dr.’s and get some medication if there is no relieve soon. the past weekend we celebrated my daughters 24th birthday she had a great weekend it started with a Saturday night concert to see the Comeback of the Jonas Brothers. And ended with a beautiful cake on Sunday . And now all the birthdays are done and summer is widening down . Soon my son will be headed to college in about two weeks which I believe it’s time … he needs sone structure and routine and I need some time to myself once again.. Thankfully I have this beautiful book to relax with and focus on. I just hope I can stretch it out till my son leaves .. yes the air in my house is thick… 🙄 and well not feeling well does add to some anxiety .. so I am reading and reading ( hahaha) and did I say reading? To keep my sanity intact … so please bare with me . As I may not not be posting everyday . Until I feel better.

A simple day .. shouldn’t it be?

After falling asleep around 1 ( very early for this insomniac) and woke at 8. To a quiet house I was very surprised .. decided to lay there for a bit and enjoy it .. then it was time to grab a quick shower and then head to the kitchen for some coffee ..ahh coffee …and the Wendy show ( hahaha) my new norm since our cable took away our local channel I use to watch . Can’t complain nice to switch it up even if it isn’t by choice. After my coffee and show was done I started with the everyday house things laundry .. cleanup last night snack dishes. Put a meatloaf in the oven for dinner as I enjoyed once again my music blasting from my beautiful speakers, makes house work go so much easier . It’s relaxing. Now just catching on some blog posts and enjoying a protein drink . Needed to add a bit more protein to my diet . I guess I do not eat enough of what I should … thanks to coffee and water that fills me. 🙄 bad habit coffee , not the water . Well struggling with the Stephen King book .. I am determined to finish it but I know I need a new book just can’t find one so I’ll keep reading this one. Not much to tell .. let’s see sadly we are back to humid weather again after some really cool temps . My son is on his last week of his jobs he has committed very well to all summer . Taking a couple of the weeks he has left before he heads to college to do some trips to see some army buddies and finish dorm shopping . Actually he is pretty much all set just some odds and ends. Hubby will have a vacation next week . Not doing much maybe some day trips get somethings done around the yard just needs a break . I honestly think he will go stir crazy … he loves the work routine when he is home he is so antsy . Where I am the other I’m content ( hahaha) oh how things change. In past summers when the kid were young we took week vacations somewhere now trying to do that is not easy .. just trying to get us all together for a dinner out is so hard . Out of my hands now kids are adults just how it goes.

Supper is done … and after cleaning up I will try to read a bit more. Let’s see how much I get read .

Monday…

It was a late start to my Monday , slept in late I guess emotionally exhausted from the weekend. Plus the heat did not help . So ready for Fall. The cool crisp air . Comfy fun clothes…. boots ( hahaha) so ready to go boot shopping. And yes coffee all the Fall favorites. Summer has been a long one actually draining .. nothing lazy about it this year. A lot of feeling of change. Good. and bad. Age no .. new paths yes. Life is so full of many changes never not a learning experience.. Spent the day out with my daughter. Yes we enjoyed getting some coffee ,8:30 at night and pitch dark. Miss Abigail is sleeping away. I think she is happy the house is quiet. She doesn’t like it when we have all the family over she hides herself away.

New week not much planned. Just going along. My daughter has a concert this weekend with friends and my son will be away all weekend at his National Guard duty. A quiet weekend ahead. Okay with me. I can always find something to do with myself on the other hand my other half cannot. Wish he would get into reading a book. Not happening 🙄 what can you do . Well time for me to read . Stephen King book is getting better.

summer Evenings…

IMG_8520IMG_8523IMG_8516 (1)

This is our summer evenings . The sun setting in front of us into the mountain but its rays of light peaking through the tree that gives us some shade and is home to the chickadee’s and robins. Tonight we shared the beautiful evening with our turkeys and fox eating and frolicking in the grass  just a bit away from us. They new we were there sitting on our deck . I believe they find this as their home as well. As we talked they just did their thing then as the night slowly rolled in and the light turning into darkness they disappeared into the edge of our woods to settle for the night as we headed into the house to settle in as well , now the house  is as quiet as our woods. Everyone tucked in for the night in there place in the house , I will do the same ..enjoy  my book for a bit until my eyes get heavy with sleep.

Mornings…

It’s Saturday morning. And a quiet one at that. An unusual occurrence .. let’s see my daughter is at work . My hubby and son went for a hike until my son has to go to work this evening. Something my son has been promising to do with my hubby since he got back from Basic. And I well I’m just sitting down now enjoying my coffee after putting a small load of clothes in the washer and giving Miss Abigail a treat that I have started when I grab my morning coffee … such a habit I have started with her. well all that really needed to be done around here this morning. So just relaxing taking in the quietness and watching Miss Abigail roam through the house. Cats can be so quiet…. soon I hope I can enjoy my morning coffee on my deck . It’s warm today but rainy. Some breaks right now just wet , tomorrow it will be a bit more rain coming down. I was hoping for a thunderstorm but not seeing it in the forecast now. Love them so much. Aww Miss Abigail is sitting next to me her head moving side to side like she’s on alert . That creeps me when she does that ( hahaha) I wonder what she hears or think she hears… I guess I’ll finish my coffee and check out the news and take in the quietness of the morning .

Quietness…

Drifting off to sleep slowly… thankfully the night is quieter the winds no more . Replaced with the moonlight shining in through the sides of my window shades. No trains tonight echoing in the distance , oh the eery but comforting sound it is. The house is quiet , everyone is home and settled in. Even Miss Abigail is down in her place . Happily she went down the stairs as my daughter called to her and as I told her good night her little face looked up at me from the bottom of the stairs … I swear if she could talk she would of said goodnight. 🙂 her eyes said it all tho. Off and on through the quiet darkness I can hear my son laughing quietly , he must be on his phone . The sound makes me smile. Oh how I will miss this as time goes by and they all spread their wings .. but for now I will absorb every moment every sound every quietness of us all settled in together. And now I will drift of to sleep as I say my prayers ….
