It’s 10:30 at night laying in bed enjoying my book . It feels good to finally settle and read . My comfort zone. The house is quiet everyone is home and settled in their rooms . The fan is all that echos through the house as I read. This was so needed . It stops my thinking wandering thoughts. In which case is always something I do. But for now I am focused on the story my book tells . And it’s comforting. I think another chapter or two then I will get some sleep. Good night 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 .
Today is the first day of Fall and it feels it . As Winnie The Pooh would say it’s a blustery day… the temps cool and crisp clean air coming through the open windows, making a hot cup of morning coffee taste so good. Not much to report the usual.Tomorrow I think we may go for a ride towards Vermont and see how the leaves are changing there .It was a food shopping day so my husband and I tackled the distaste task as quickly as possible. (Hahaha) yes that bad.. people in grocery stores are not one to mess with …people want their food. (hahaha) we went towards the middle of the day so my husband could work on the barn some more trying to get electricity out there. By the time we arrived home it was supper time . So that’s all done and cleaned up and it has just hit 7:00 in the evening and it’s just about dark outside. last week it was 7:30 . Soon it will be 5:30 , Also a cool night. My daughter is home down in her place resting with some hot tea nursing a cold . My sons out at a football game with a friend my husband is watching the baseball game . I think I will try finishing the book I’ve been reading on the last two chapters . Then I can start the book I bought when I was with my son. So time to put on the kettle for some hot water and make some tea and enjoy my book . Have a goodnight everyone.
Ahh .. I was actually able to get some good sleep last night. Fell asleep around 10:30 , that is really early for me and then I woke around 8 .,So needed. No horror shows before bed (hahaha) during the day did some errands in town and then came home to a quiet house for a quiet afternoon my daughter working my son out with a friend so I decided to take out my adult coloring book and pens and settled on the couch. While watching tv talk about Hurricane Florence, it was nice to color again . At first I wasn’t sure if I could get back into it . It’s hard to explain …. let me see if I can explain . Coloring was something I got into when my sons senior yr began needing an outlet for my mind . Well so much has changed he’s graduated and the summer has been a different one as well as this Fall .My daughter is out more and working more. My son leaves in 3 weeks . So It felt like an old thing I did in the past .. crazy thought , right? Once again it’s hard to explain the feeling. Any ways as I sat here while everything was done that needed to be around the house. I felt like I had scrolled through Instagram Twitter , WordPress enough .Facebook not so much haven’t been as interested in that lately getI tend to get sick of hearing the endless drama . So I pushed forward through my feelings and colored and before I knew it an hour had passed by and my husband came through the door from work looking at me and said well you look content. You know what I was content . My mind was so focus on coloring I didn’t think of things that would otherwise have me doing endless worry over things that were not even a thought to think about. As the night progressed the kids came home , we chatted laughed and then settled into bed I then fell asleep . Did coloring help? Or was it no tv horror shows or cell phone before bed ? Or all of the above ? No brainer all of the above 🙂
Today looks like and feels like another cloudy day need to clean up the kitchen from breakfast so will do that ,pizza night so suppers all set . Sitting here with a late morning coffee and watching the updates on Hurricane Florence . My thoughts and prayers go out to the Carolinas it’s getting devastating .. please keep them in your thoughts.
Hi everyone ! I haven’t been posting this past week much.. I guess I’ve been Just being as my title states… I looked up what just being is , if any and was surprised how many ways, things there was with this phrase just being. I related with some of the examples . I believe for me it’s just been being free from a routine being able to just getting up showering having my coffee and taking my time enjoying it maybe enjoying a second cup . Taking care of things around the house whether I finish doing what are started or not … but yes I finish what I start, just the fact that I have no time limit .. my routine is changing my time is becoming more my time during the day . Very relaxing and less stressed . My kids come and go we have our moments of chats , laughing. But all good . Nice feeling. So I been also enjoying reading a lot of reading out on the deck enjoying sun as well . I also have been able to take my photos off my phone printing them and started working on my photo wall. Plus changing things up around the house ..
