It’s a cold dreary Sunday afternoon. It’s okay it basically how I am feeling. Winter is here and so are the colds and viruses that sadly come along with this season feeling a bit under the weather .My son who is on his way back to his college dorm feeling it too. I may have got this from him . The house was quiet except for the rumbling of the washing machine washing all his blankets .The TV is off and I am stretched out on the couch cozy under a blanket with all my essentials a hot cup of tea next to me. My recent read And yes my laptop on my lap . The silence is nice It’s my peace since napping is not something I do well. I had this whole post I wanted to write which I may later ,it’s about coincidences . For now I am just enjoying my tea and just writing gibberish to keep me put on this couch to relax. 😊 I know to well I will try to find something to do . I guess I will try reading a bit. And I’ll be back on later with my post I actually wanted to write.
If you read my recent post from the day before.( Wed ) I posted about setting into finish reading my book and stated about a storm warning coming across the TV screen as we were getting ready to shut it down for the night.. We waited and waited my hubby paced and paced as I just watch him… I finally told him to go to bed . I settled in myself with my book all set to read and then there it was the brightest flash of lightening and the the sound of rain bouncing off the air conditioner. My hubby turned to me and said and you said the clouds were breaking up…. well they were when I last checked . We could hear the thunder see the lightening and then out of the blue this sound …that sound… yes that sound Its hard to describe what it sounds like ..well it’s kind of describable I just hate saying what it sounds like… okay it’s a bang noise a very loud bang . Almost like a shot gun sound . And NO it’s not thunder , my hubby and my daughter who was downstairs in her place had heard it about a week ago when we first heard it. It was a clear starry night , a week day but the same time as last night around 9:30 it’s a one time bang .. that’s it and it’s so loud it literally makes me jump and leaves me shaking as it did for my hubby and daughter . Thunder doesn’t do that to us. My hubby the first time went outside and looked around. We waited for sirens thinking someone crashed or something happened on the nearby train tracks but nothing no sirens echoed in the night just quietness. And last night 9:30 and once again a one time again . We heard thunder off and on and yes such a different sound . The sound comes in the direction where our bedroom window showing the side woods , If you look at the pictures you can see its all woods . we wonder is it a neighbor but then we say why? and then we think fireworks but just once it doesn’t make sense as well. All I know its really creepy and so loud. its so mind boggling . once again an unknown which is so frustrating . let’s see if it happens again soon sadly I really do not know what we can do about it. Oh did I finish my book? no I didn’t I was too occupied by the storm and strange sound. I am stepping off now to read. I will read all your lovely blog posts tomorrow . Have a great night everyone.
It’s Tuesday the sun is shining the temps are mild . I’m sitting here thinking it’s a home kind of day… I’ll make my homemade chicken and rice soup. For dinner. Catch up on my daytime shows while cooking.. The day will be quiet ,hubby at work my kids out and about. And that is fine . I’m embracing the quietness today . It’s odd how lately when there is a full moon I can’t sleep well at night well not that part that is odd it’s the feeling of content, some people when there is a full moon feel anxious or no different . I’m going to embrace this feeling . Why not. After soup and shows are done I will tackle my reading I’ve been wanting to do.. and just let the day just be . I think we need times like this . I know I spend a lot of time at home but I’m usually doing what needs to be done within my limits. And thinking A LOT ! Right now enjoying my coffee and catching up on the morning news.
Loving our new used leather sectional but I m looking desperately for a cover for it . Leather is not easy to keep safe with a cat around .. it worries me a bit the family who had it before at dogs but were not allowed on furniture . And let’s just say it’s not easy with sizing and the fact they come in sections the cover so $ adds up but I figure being free I can splurge a bit on a cover. I may need my son to search the internet for this . He’s pretty good at researching things and finding a good price … too good at times . 😂 okay it’s time to finish my coffee. Enjoy your day!
Today was a quiet day hubby at work . My daughter home but with her boyfriend down in her place as she came up off and on doing laundry . Miss Abigail enjoyed the sun in her chair while the winds had calmed. Cold but the sun was nice and bright. That was nice to see. Thankfully the power stayed on throughout the night . Sadly for some their power was out. I believe for the most part power is back on . Tomorrow more snow coming our way . Grr… I think we are all ready for Spring . … even though my son does want some when he gets home so he can go snowboarding. I believe will have some .
My son has been quiet the last few nights even tho he can be on his phone at 5 in the evening. I’m sure he is .. chatting with friends , listening to music , on all is social media sites. Soon he will be home and he will be able to see him ..it’s fine if he’s quiet are way. I’ve been reading my daughters book she let me borrow. at night and my hubby watching the news .. so it’s fine . The temps have dropped so the house is making cracking noises .. it could be bit of a noisy night. 🙂I quest I’ll settle in bed and read my book . Goodnight everyone.
It’s Wednesday evening and a sick day at that… my daughter who I caught this from went to work at 9 this morning and was home an hour and a half later laying on the couch . While I was cozy well as much as I could be with the body aches siting in my chair but not before doing a sm load of laundry and just cleaned up the kitchen a bit or it would bother me🙄 ,as I cleaned up the kitchen I put the kettle on for two cups of tea for my daughter and I . Then one once settled with our tea she watched my daytime shows with me as she snoozed a bit ..oh how she looked comfortable ….I cannot sleep during the day believe me I triedto no avail I just closed my eyes and rocked in my chair .sipping my tea off and on. After got up and made a chop suey for supper. Nice and simple. And then back in my chair as my daughter was awake now we watched several episodes of reruns of The Middle. Loved that show .. so sad it ended last year such a family show but the most part was it was real . now supper is cleaned up my daughter down in her place and my husband taking her place on the couch watching the news.
What is it about nighttime when your sick you feel worse? Not fun…. my daughter not feeling well was lucky to have someone cover her shift at work tomorrow which is good so she can rest more ..plus freezing rain is coming in tonight until morning hours so she won’t have to be on the road is a good thing. especially with our long driveway that feels like a short country dirt road. Soo I think I will settle in bed with a book and try to read since my hubby and I’s favorite show well one of them is not coming back until March. Well I guess I will try to relax some more .
It’s a mild rainy day with a bit of a chill in the air. Perfect day for a cup of tea , reading , writing, I’m going to start my journal today . I know I keep saying it . But! Today is the day , just making my homemade chicken and rice soup for supper … I’m not stalling🙂 just a perfect day for soup (Hahah) and I’m thinking how to start it while I’m blogging as well . Will see maybe once I get going I’ll learn a balance between the two. It’s always hard starting something new. I think today tho is perfect for it. The question is .. should I write in it at night or morning ? That just keeps rolling around in my head .. yes always over thinking. Well my soup is cooking and the house smells delicious . My daughter is working till 8 then she will be with her boyfriend it’s his weekend off so I do not see her much on those days. It’s just my hubby and I and Miss Abigail . And both are napping. My hubby hates rainy days so not being able to be outside he naps . Which is fine with me then I have sometime to myself . My son called has his phone on weekends so we talked for a bit he’s doing well , sounds a bit tired , not sleeping to well but I’m sure he will settle in soon . It was a quick chat was off for a haircut and then going to relax since they have some free time. I told him to go to it no worries if I see him online I won’t bother him .. well not all the time. He doesn’t need to be chatting with his mom all day 😂 he chuckled at that and said not a problem …oh how humble he is becoming. Well time to check on my soup .
Last night feeling a bit under the weather I started the book I had bought back while ago at the book store with my son. I must say its a bit sad , talks about a dark time in history about the Holocaust . The book is written beautiful and with sensitivity . I love Danielle Steele she is such a beautiful author . I could of read well after midnight but stopped myself to settle into some sleep at a decent time. Today feeling still under the weather and it being a rainy dark cool day I still needed to run errands that included stopping at our local convenient store and getting their lg cup of delicious hot chocolate.. so chocolaty and creamy for only .99 cents with my daughter. to help along being out in the cold ,then it was time to get home and get somethings done around the house… hoping to settle soon and read some more. I’m due to have some of this rainy day to relax.. And that being said I think I will start now. So have a good night everyone while I go and enjoy my book.
