Its been a really cold grey day. Colds and virus are already going around and just feel blah . Just settled an hour ago and did some adult coloring to settle my mind , Im thinking a hot cup of hot chocolate now and start my new book I’ve been anxiously wanting to start but needed to finish the Novel Bittersweet ..must say was not an easy read .. it dragged out a lot each chapter was just boring , sorry love the author but just not this book . So now off to put the kettle on for some hot water . Here is a photo of my page so far that I’ve been working on ,finished a bit more since last posting it.this is probably the shortest post I’ve posted but need to relax.
The house is quiet my sons friends all went home the kitchen is clean thanks to my hubby ..and now we are all relaxing my son watching a movie no exams for him tomorrow he did them today and then Fri he has some so that’s good he can relax my hubby and I are relaxing in bed, I’m enjoying my book and he is watching tv ..was hoping he would read but that’s okay the book will be there on his shelf.
Like I’ve said in my past posts he’s not a reader I just pushed it hoping it would help him to relax but that will not be he what relaxes him by running and hiking is it where I cannot with my hip . But it’s all good . We just have our own thing what relaxes me is writing reading and coloring. Yes I would love to hike and run , I use to be able to but as I got older and had kids it’s not easy and that’s okay because I’m lucky to have been able to have kids and that is the greatest gift and sacrifice. When they where younger I was younger so I was able to do a lot with them and it was perfect to be able , now their older and I’m older and my job has lesson as well as my body of doing a lot of things. what I can do is sit and watch my sons track meets well In the spring more seating available the indoor winter meets my hubby goes and messages me. I can enjoy a cup of coffee with my oldest my daughter and I love to chat with our coffee and go to a book store and get our books. I can make supper for my family and my hubby cleans up and then we settle and watch our favorite shows or movies so it’s taught me one thing getting older and having no choice but to slow down that it’s not a bad thing that the most simplest things are just as important if more then the bigger things and when my house is filled with my kids friends and their filling the quiet with laughter and loud music and messing my kitchen up making food that is what I call a special moment . Life isn’t always easy but it’s good and it’s how you look at it and that is what life should be about not what and how much you have material wise but how many special moments you make and have to look back on .
Hi Everyone this is what’s going …is keeping me sane 🙂 when I’m done with all the the house work and errands while I’m staying inside where it’s warm with these brutal temperatures . This is a book that I found while decluttering the house it may be one of the kids possibly my sons from English class that they had to read at one time , it looked interesting so I set it aside to read when I finish my coloring page I had been working on , this one was more an easier one not as much detail but still fun and challenging. Loving this new adult coloring book. Going to be a cold weekend so after food shopping is done on Saturday and whatever else that needs taking care of .I will get cozy up on the couch with a throw blanket and enjoy and make the best of this weather . Happy there’s nothing special planned for the weekend . ❤️
So this has been my stress /relax thing to do the last couple of days .. especially today on this rainy cold July day… I tried reading but couldn’t focus on it so I’ve been watching this oldie but good tv show yes MASH love it my hubby as well and during the commercials. playing this game bubble pop so addicting just as bad as bejeweled I use to play. But if it gives me a break from worrying about things I can’t do anything about then why not . There are worse things to do so I guess this is a good thing . It’s 10 at night and everyone’s settled in and so I guess I will too so time to shut the game off for now and let the sound of the rain drft me of to sleep. Goodnight everyone.
Happy New Years Everyone I hope everyone has safe and happy one. I am going to sit back eat some Chinese Food and enjoy some glasses of wine and reflect on this past year and what a year it was so many unimaginable losses but at the same time many new happy experiences My Son making it too Junior Olympics in Sacramento California for a week He got his drivers learners permit. ,, but then like I said many unimaginable losses, life loves doing that to us never a dull moment but I guess it’s away to keep us on our toes which to me is a bad joke. I am so ready to say goodbye to this year but not what I am leaving behind with it ..my beautiful pup bitter sweet had him for 6 beautiful yrs and lost him this year the beginning of this month. but in my heart I will carry him into the New Year but hopefully the sadness of his loss doesn’t follow but Gives me the chance to bring in the beautiful and so many of beautiful memories of him and when I think of him in 2017 I want to smile not tear up….will see easier said then done .Something strange happen tonight we put up our our tree and its been up for about three weeks so tonight on the last night it will be up the lights are blinking now .okay to me its just strange and actually my husband was puzzled by it.. okay I believe in signs so it puzzles me some say ahh it just happens but on New Years Eve well that’s timing . what do You think? Well time for Chinese and wine everyone enjoy and stay safe .
