Thursday already…

ahh I Slept 8 hrs last night that’s actually a record for me , if you read my last post you will see why I say this . I’m shocked it made sense ( haha) I was exhausted . I think tonight will not be an early night now that I feel refreshed .. oh this vicious cycle of an insomniac 🙄 It’s A Thursday night the sun has been down for a bit now . 8:00 and it’s slowly getting dark. Sadly I’m not crushed I’m looking forward to Fall . So I can go back to wearing boots legging and comfy sweaters. And yes all the Fall flavored coffees will come out . My daughter and I alway go to Starbucks when September arrives for our pumpkin spice flavor coffee. Coffee always Taste good but in the Fall it’s the best . Okay my post was not going to be all about coffee (haha) I could go on though for a while writing about it. It just taste so good. 🙂

Thursday already why… usually the week goes by slow. Next week it will after this weekend when I turn the big 50 ughh… it’s unbelievable even to myself how much I’m dreading this. Life really does fly by . Crazy how that happens. Trying not to think about it . Going to just celebrate it with my family at my favorite pub a nice simple dinner , maybe a drink , but then they have this really tasty expresso and seeing that I’m not much for alcohol I may just go for the expresso , I know a lot of people have big parties but I’m not really into that and it’s too . late to change now. I like the more intimate simple kind of night out. I stated before it doesn’t take much to make me happy . Simple that is what

Beautiful Mother’s Day weekend ❤️

It was such a beautiful weekend . Saturday we were in the70s and it was just a simple day enjoyed the outdoors spending time on the deck and chatting with my hubby while he did things around the yard. Then after he finished we went for a ride and treated ourselves to coffee. Went on the back country roads and just took in the leisurely day. After we arrived home to throw some pizzas in the oven for supper and relaxed on the couch watching tv. On Sunday woke to a cold rainy Mother’s Day. I dragged myself into the shower just as I heard my daughter shutting the door to head out for work . She had a long day at the floral shop . A bit later I got a text from her saying Happy Mother’s Day sorry she missed me but loved me and would see me later. I smiled as I headed out to the kitchen for coffee . My hubby told me she left me a card and she wanted me to open it. .. so I did very sweet and a Amazon gift card was also with it. I was telling her how I wanted to order some books there so this was perfect. My son woke and came out with a sappy face and said Happy Mother’s Day and said he still needed to grab me something he had worked late the night before and didn’t get a chance. I told him it was fine he then said go get ready I’ll take you out for breakfast . My hubby loved the idea and said yes let him do this . So the three of us finished getting ready and headed out . We went to a local orchard that has the cutest little restaurant . It was so nice and comfortable laid back. I do not like stuffy restaurants . I like to be comfortable and I love comfy food not fancy. So absolutely perfect I ordered blueberry pancakes and corn beef hash , my son said only order one pancake it’s huge it covers the whole plate it’s so filling . Well he was right oh my I couldn’t finish it. And a plateful of hash and endless refills of coffee. So there we sat stuffing our faces (hahaha) and chatting and laughing. It was nice do not do this often with my son. After we took a ride as he drove . Then once home my son left for a run with a friend … how he did that after eating I do not know🙂My hubby and I headed over to his moms to give her the plant we got her and sat and enjoyed coffee with her for awhile . Once home still full from breakfast we ate light my son came home from running and settled in as my hubby and I did . My daughter came home with a big hug for me and said she hoped I enjoyed my day . Then we all relaxed . A very simple content day . Oh and my hubby also got me a plant as well my daughter helped him pick it out . I hope all you moms out there enjoyed your day!

The Darkness..

It’s 10:30 at night and as I lay here in the darkness of my room it’s amazing how peaceful it is . My house is quiet but yet it’s not .I can hear my husband next to me softly sleeping , And then the sound of my son and his friends quietly talking and laughing down the hall. Occasionally hearing the door to the refrigerator opening and closing. ..Boys always hungry. Off in the distance I can hear a train on the tracks rumbling along through the night ,surprisingly over the sound of the fan my husband cannot sleep without and now I have now grown accustomed too, off and on I hear the furnace turn on and occasionally the sound of Miss Abigail jumping around downstairs hopefully not keeping my daughter awake . Playing with something she found. Soon we will hear the coyotes has they make their way through our woods at night and the cry of an owl going after it’s prey . The night some times so quiet and peaceful yet active and alive. As I drift off to sleep I am content . And feel blessed of this simple life my husband and I have made.

Calmness…

As you see I’m laying in the dark comfy though in my bed ,the house is quiet as the day was . Everything shut down and settled in bed all of us.. It was a calm quiet day as well even though all of us where home . It started with enjoying a cup of coffee with my hubby then a second cup with my daughter , as my son ran around in the kitchen making something for breakfast the sound of the blender and the decent of eggs frying coming from the kitchen . ..He’s back and with his special diet regimen . My hubby did step out for a bit and did the food shopping for me while I was decluttering the kitchen a bit more since it will be a new color and decor. While my daughter did some laundry and cleaned her place up. Then everything was quiet hubby was home groceries were put away . Daughter down in her place . My son sleeping ..out like a light . Exhausted. And not feeling well . As for me getting some dinner going a rotisserie chicken my hubby brought home from the market all set to eat ..so I made mashed potatoes with ranch seasoning in them . Some steamed corn . Nice and simple but hearty . My son ate with us . It was strange but so nice having us all together eating dinner together. Very rare. So I absorbed the moment. Because I know they won’t always be this way . Then my son went back to bed and hubby settled in our room to watch tv as my daughter and I enjoyed a show in the living room .so yes a very calm day but content and relaxed. So now on ward to Monday and a new week. Back to business tomorrow … more bills to be paid ,post office run, my kids hoping to get a Dr.’s appointment . And hubby back to work . Maybe I can sneak in a coffee run. Well it’s getting late and even though it’s really is only going on 10 but with the time change it going on 11 I guess it’s time to get some sleep . It was a late night last night so do not want another one. Goodnight everyone.

Happy ,Simple , Things, …

It’s a late Friday morning enjoying my coffee with strawberry cheesecake flavor creme.. after laying in bed a bit longer enjoying the warmth of the covers after checking my phone and seeing it showed freezing rain this morning . I didn’t feel the need to rush to get up.

Grabbing a hot shower finally I came out and enjoyed my coffee and the news .. a busy Friday morning in the news. Valentines Day has come and gone … laying in bed last night after my hubby and I and my daughter all settled in early her and I still recovering and my hubby starting to feel ill. I was going through my blog when around 10:00 my cell rang and appearing on my screen was my son on a mountain after hiking up it ..staring back at me. I couldn’t answer fast enough lol! I said hi and and a man replied back to me (no matter how many times I hear his voice it still amazes me how he has grownup so fast where did this time go so quickly.. ) hi did I wake you or dad ? Of course not even if he did I’d never tell him 🙂 he asked if his dad was sleeping and I told him to listen facing the phone in the direction of my snoring hubby (hahaha) he did his snicker and said yep. My poor hubby the things I do to him … we talked for 40mins it was nice ..he doesn’t call much because he feels no privacy ..but being that they had changed rooms once again last night he got his original roommates back that are older mature and understand about family and yes talking to your mom hahaha . He wished me a happy Valentine’s Day and asked what or if we did anything . He knew I’ve been sick and knows how simple I am anyway ..that any moment spent with just family is enough. He told me how he was getting a cold and I heard coughing from his buddies in the back ground .. it’s everywhere…. he said he would push through has a four day weekend being it’s Presidents Day holiday here in the States. So he welcomes some down time. Along with all of them on the base. It was really nice to talk with him hear his voice . It will be strange when he comes home. Has a lot on his mind .. oh he is my child hahaha, after getting off the phone with him I settled into some sleep.

Today I will putter around was going to try to get to the Post Office but not going to play with the ice that has coated my steps and driveway . Hopefully tomorrow. My daughter is still sleeping doesn’t have to work until late afternoon so happy she is resting she needs it. I guess it’s time to do a few things my coffee cup is now empty that being said have a good day everyone .🙂

A quiet Valentines Day…

My hubby had work and my daughter as well especially with her working in the floral department and it being Valentines Day she had to be in at 8:00 so at 7:30 I heard the front door shut . I laid there in bed taking in the quietness of the house after a actual restful night sleep after going to bed with a tickle making me cough and dreading how the night would be .. but thankfully it lessened but an hour after getting up and grabbing a shower it started up again …🙄

I grabbed some coffee oh my what a treat it was ..my daughter had bought strawberry cheesecake flavor coffee creme .. I know probably sounds a bit gross but it’s so delicious . So I enjoyed my coffee while catching up on my morning show. And reading the lovely card my hubby left me on the table to be found when I woke. The rest of my day was spent with some light laundry tasks and kitchen cleanup . Then knowing we would treat ourselves with takeout for dinner there was no worries there. I settled in with my shows relaxing while the washing machine carried on. And chatting with my daughter who said they were having lulls in being busy and was not feeling well couldn’t wait to come home and just relax . Her boyfriend working tonight she was okay with so she could rest.. they had spent the last two days together and their not big into the whole Valentines Day thing they believe we should love like this every day. Hmm I guess my hubby and I did something right and his parents as well (hahaha) so she got out of work for 5 and I ordered her food as well and the three of us enjoyed and spent time together chatting and her and I eating some chocolates after our meal because she bought a box of candy that was half priced now. I picked out the orange cream filled and the coconut filled candies my favorite ones.

We chatted with my son off and on while he was on I sent him a photo of the sunset tonight and told him it was for him he said that was nice. He never brought up Valentines Day and so I let it be .. he’s on a Army Base and I’m sure the least of his thoughts at the moment. It was nice to actually say we were all together tonight yes my son away but a text away ,my daughter enjoying food and conversation with my hubby was nice a nice quiet Valentines Day . Simple and most important with my family.

Now it’s 9:30 and my daughter and Miss Abigail are settled down in her place she was tired and ready to settle in bed as well as my hubby and I who is not feeling a 100 percent. My son off for the moment but said he would say goodnight when he shuts his phone off for the night. Hopefully I can keep my eyes open .. it’s 9.30 here ..Missouri 8:30 and phones go off at 9 ,formation I’m sure is right now .. then sleep at 9 . All and all a simple day it was and I couldn’t ask or want for anything more. 🙂
