Been a very laid back Friday! Not complaining whatsoever! I woke to a bright sunny day . Grabbed a quick shower then Headed straight to the coffee pot. It was Bill day and not wanting to jump into it I turned on the Wendy Show and enjoyed some laughter with my coffee. I really love her humor . Minutes later my son found his way to the kitchen stating he was going for a ride on his bike . I was happy it freed up my car I have been generously sharing with him all summer. I told him to lockup when he left I was heading in to town to do some errands. Well… when the the turn arrived came that heads into town , last minute I decided I would keep going straight. I wasn’t ready to run those errands as well . It felt nice to be out of the house in my car no rush to get back home I decided to just drive .., I turned the radio up and just drove and thinked . It was nice to be alone enjoying what I like to do driving and listening to music. I use to do it all the time … but became too logical … where would I go how much gas I was wasting, but today I let the logic fly out the open car window . And enjoyed. Such a simple a pleasure why should I take that away . My kids are grown I really have no reason to rush home so why not. And no if your thinking I’m not having a mid life crises. (Hahaha) I just wanted some “me time” outside of the house . After two and a half hours later with postoffice and bank run accomplished , I arrived home . Hubby home from work . Fridays is his early day , my son cooking himself food , my daughter getting ready for work all was well . No one missed me. It was a nice feeling. Now it’s already 9 at night . Hubby watching baseball . I’m just writing. And it’s totally dark out now. Feeling content . With that I guess I will settle. Have a great night everyone🙂
It’s Tuesday night a little after 8 and its already getting dark. I know the last several posts I have stated this. I guess it’s just unbelievable to me. A long lazy summers just seems not to be that way anymore …every summer they just go by a bit faster. Football is being talked about more . Back to school shopping is showing up everywhere from TV commercials to stores stocking up on school supplies. College dorm essentials . My son is doing pretty good with that… soon he will be away and my front door opening and closing will get a little break. Mom will get her car back on a regular basis and the bike will be stored away in the barn. All will be calm and quiet….. hmmm something I am looking forward to a bit….Okay maybe not (hahaha) Oh its a mother’s problem . I am sure he is ready for a change. I just looked out and it’s 8:30 and its completely dark out. There is no fire fly’s lightening up the darkness. At least the humming of the air conditioner is gone for now ,windows are open soon Miss Abigail will figure this out and find her way to an open window. Ahh the breeze gently blowing in from the windows is beautiful. surprisingly there is a bit of a chill to it. Such extreme this weather is .The air smells fresh and clean for once. If it wasn’t 8:30 at night I honestly could enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee . I can just smell it’s aroma ….not good to think about or I will not be sleeping tonight… Well I think It’s time to read a bit before I call it a night.Have a great night everyone And If you enjoyed my random thoughts tonight thank you!
It’s only Tuesday but feels like Friday .. this week is moving so slow. The next two days is dealing with vehicles going into the garage I am not looking forward to. My daughter wants me to go with her to our local garage for her car … I told her it’s easy enough she replies your so social they love you there you talk away with them . So I will be basically going to remind them what they need to check meanwhile will sit at the convenient store next to it and enjoy a coffee. Then Thurs other half’s truck that goes in ,that’s a drop off but then need to go back to get it. The errand I do not like to do. Well enough of that … anyways it’s been pretty quiet around here nature wise. I think the wildlife is hiding in the shade to stay cool. Over the weekend we did have a coyote in the yard . At first when we looked out we thought it was a dog. Okay I thought it was . My daughter looks at me and said that is no dog . Credits to her for trying to get a picture of him. Any move we made he looked towards us. So she just kept snapping pictures . The pics will give you an idea of this guy . Defiantly pretty and the biggest one we have seen in awhile . Im wondering if this is why we are not seeing our fox that comes around every evening. I hope that is the only reason.
Rain coming in Wed and Thurs cannot wait we really need it. The grass is burning and the rivers are looking a bit to low. The rain will be welcoming. Along with it warmer temps looking like the weekend will be over a 100 and humid. The Weathermen are warning the dew point will be at dangerous levels… a good time to read my book. Every-time I pick up my book I’m interrupted by my other half turning on a movie and asking me to watch with him or it’s look ..oh did you see that . Or my daughter wanting to talk and once we get talking we could talk all night . My son is fine he just sits quietly as he goes through his phone . Sometimes quiet . I can see him out of the corner of my eye making funny faces and laughing… the world of Snapchat. For the life of me I can not figure that out and I guess I really do not need to. Well it’s 8:00 at night and I’m noticing it’s getting a bit darker out earlier each night. Where did this summer go? I quess its time to read some blogs and then get some sleep. Night everyone.
As your laying in bed and the silence of the house around you is deafening .. as your finishing your prayers . You hear the distant sound of a trains whistle echo through the darkness of the night . It’s a lonely but comforting sound as you pull the covers up settling under them a bit more you drift slowly off to sleep.
The day went by quietly for the most part . My son arrived home around 2 after work and we went to the garage for a tire for my subie if you read my last post you will understand why. It only took about twenty minutes and the good thing was they were able to fix the damaged tire . It cost $25.00 and a pink carnation I walked out with . Yes they give the lady customers a carnation.. good business technique I must say. then we came home and the rest of the day went back to quietness as my son left for a workout and my hubby arrived home only two hours ago long day at work.
We. are settled in bed now my hubby watching tv and I am reading. Well was until my phone buzzed to see I had a follow request on Instagram hmmm.. okay some random guy a happy guy not bad looking hahaha but okay sketchy because I’m private and there’s no mutual followers . (Spam )I believe so I deleted him. Showed my daughter she laughed and said that happens a lot to you . Yes indeed… anyways ..Really enjoying the book . I have a list of books I want to read so I’m happy to get through this one. The night is young so I’m going to get back to some reading. 🙂
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.
Ahh…the quietness except for the sound of my fountain and the soft breeze blowing gently at my face letting whims of hair tickling the sides of my cheeks . The sky is an amazing blue . It’s nice sitting here with the warmth of the sun on me. Soon there will be the sound of banging doors as everyone comes home and settles in after their busy day but for now it’s just myself and enjoying this serene moment.
