Good Morning ,it’s been some quiet mornings this week just Miss Abigail and I she’s roaming around in the house as I sit outside enjoying my coffee . Another beautiful day suns shining the air is a bit cooler then the other mornings but feels refreshing. I have been trying to get use to these moments of quietness … as each day passes it’s one day closer to a quieter house. No more doors opening and closing continuously , no houseful of kids ransacking our cupboards for food. No loud music playing unless it’s my hubby or I (hahaha) I think that actually will be me playing more music to drown out the quietness.. no more sport meets to run too that will be the hardest for my hubby to adjust to.. My children will still live at home for a bit ..but now they will both be adults and living their life doing their thing . My daughter working getting closer to her new boyfriend spending more time away from the house, my son ,college / National Guards and spending also more time away as well. . Time sure does fly by and I’m still / trying to adapt to a new journey myself . I will be spending more time now with friends then taking care of this house. I’m hoping my hubby can adapt easily he is thinking a lot about things too … I know I need to go back to my motto ..take it one day at a time . Hmmm so hard taking your own advise. Oh but I will. 🙂
Ahh so happy there is really no snow coming our way, I want the schools track to stay clear . 3rd day of track and field practice for my son. I believe he’s enjoying it. I’m happy to see him content at the moment . The evenings here and my hubby and I have finished our dinner and cleaned up the kitchen now we are just relaxing in the quietness of our house watching the evening news and it’s 6:30 here and still light out which is a plus. My daughter is still working but heading back out later with a friend., my son arrived home from practice with a couple of his buddies and have gone out can’t complain he’s been home the past three nights , that’s a record for him hahaha.. after the news I think I will settle and read the book my daughter lended me . It feels nice to be reading again. . I think we will have company though when my daughter goes out later Miss Abigail will be laying with my hubby and I ❤️
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?
Quietness is such a lonely feeling .. it make the nights even darker . The house is not even making its creaking noises . Everything seems settle except for my mind . My thought are scattered like a puzzle my emotions feel like there twirling like a tornado …so strange this newness .. is change ever easy !
The night is upon us . The house is quiet , everyone in their beds sleeping , no sound from the outside the boys (coyotes) must be hunting or settled somewhere else tonight . The train with it’s lonely whistle through the darkness is not to be heard tonight as well . All is quiet so I will settle under my blankets absorbing the warmth of them and drift off to dream land… goodnight everyone.
The sun is beautiful and feels good. The temps are in the mid 50’s 🙂 Was up early after a restless night .. Brought my sons car to the garage we go to for repairs . Thankfully not as bad as my son thought or was told by another garage . The mechanic explained to my son that just do some up keep and watch it when you go to bigger garages trying to find anything to fix to make money off you. Then I went and had my car inspected . So that is done and feeling a bit better about things . Taking it as it comes one step at a time. Thankfully my son is on a hike with a friend now needed to do something wth all that worry energy he had built up . ..snowboarding instructor job is slowing down for the season so work is slowing down for him until bike park opens . I’m enjoying the sun and some quietness in my chair by the window with Miss Abigail laying on the sunny living room floor. Happy girl. Homemade grinders for supper so easy peasy tonight. Well I guess I will enjoy the quietness soon hubby will be home.
The night darker then usual the moon is covered in clouds ,no shadow upon my walls instead a very darken room filled with nothing but quietness ..and my thoughts that seem to occupy my mind. Endless thoughts with no place to escape . What to do if only I knew the answers….
