Crazy November… today it’s 53 out which for us is a warm day ,the house is quiet but not my daughter and I filling the quiet house-with some laughter being silly and it’s not like we are doing anything special just having a mother daughter moment . Love!!
The evenings are so much shorter these days as I’m not just talking about it getting darker earlier , it just used to be consumed by early suppers then getting the kids doing and finishing their homework then baths and showers and one tv show and reading time and then off to bed. Now it’s later suppers and whoever is here to eat what I make and when then earlier settling in bed to watch some shows but now replaced with catching up on them on stream lining NBC the next day because hubby has to get up so much earlier for work so earlier to bed because we are older now and mornings are not good without the proper sleep🙄 how things have changed … oh believe me this is not a rant or complaint just a sad statement to life and how much it changed in the past couple of years . I’m adjusting it’s a lot more simple and sometimes less stressful but I’m learning or should say my hubby and I are learning how to relate to our older kids now and our life with eachother again … you will be so surprised if your younger and just starting out with marriage, babies and your reading this and going what ? Believe me now that my kids have grown and we are less needed and the focus is not all on them . You come to realize how much you and your better half have changed and grown it’s such an amazing thing . I find that we are settled in our own routine and that’s okay and we have our routine as a couple as well it’s so different how we relate now ,this whole new chapter . Waiting to be discovered .
After a typical Monday day getting back to the work and school week and the lovely task of housework which is never done, you know laundry dusting weekend clutter etc .. then making supper which was stuffed peppers I must say came out pretty good. So tonight was an active one not the quietness my hubby and I have been settling into lately it was the comings and goings of my son and his friends and now they have decided to stay the night and my daughter went out with one friend but another friend asked to come here after work till my daughter came home and now she is staying over . I love when the house is full of friends it’s such a great feeling I hope there will be a lot more of this, this yr till my son goes to college . My husband is awkward about it hahahaha but not l! I’m happy my daughters friend feels comfortable to come here on thier own and my sons friends are comfortable to leave and come back t makes my house seem homey to them. That’s really all that makes me happy. 🙂it’s just these simple moments that I cherish .
Good Morning ! so this is a different photo I would usually put up:) but for some reason I thought this was kind of neat ….yes its a wine cork but I just love the detail of the foot on it . I’ve never saw such a cool design on a wine cork hahaha so I thought this deserved a photo . I think the wine brand is Bare foot or the name of it …my daughter had it she heard it was good .She loves trying certain wines I liked the cork hahahah I know silly but like I said it does not take much to make me laugh or find interesting.. so this my photo for photo Monday.
Why do I write? I believe it’s like a runner who loves to run it’s a need a drive . It’s something that your body craves when it discovers it just like how someones mind craves to write words down on paper that the mind wants to express,. and likes the feeling of freedom it gives them . Runners run to also relieve stress and clears their mind, same as it does for a writer . Now the question is WHY do I write? well all that I have stated but it’s more then that I have been writing since I was a teenager I can’t count the amount of Journals I have had and then the endless amount of poems I’ve written thoughts that are in my head. When your a teenager my favorite place to take a notebook and pen and write was an old abandon covered bridge, listening to the walls of the old wood creak as the wind would blow through those warn down walls and the beautiful sound of the the stream was a perfect place. I love the satisfaction of it .After I started a family I got busy with them and writing went to the side a bit. Off and on if I had a moment I would write but not as much as I wanted . I have chronic hip issues and I cannot run to relieve my stress so writing helps a lot and now with my kids growing up my daughter an adult now and my son a teenager and another yr to graduate High school I have the time now and do I need this more then ever.
I started this blog about a yr ago and it’s about my life with my family everyday life going on’s the stresses of having kids teenagers writing about my other interests .To some who read this will probably get board and just pass by it and to some may like it for them thank you. believe me I am not writing this blog for a ton of views yes it would be nice it feels good when I see the likes but my simple little issues are not for everyone and I know that, but at times it does hurt when I do not get a like and I doubt myself and I question everything I wrote…yes my grammar is not up to date. the writing structure needs to be worked on but sadly I just get on here and just write what come out of my thoughts and really do not thing about it. but I do know I love all my followers and appreciate them and me and read my post. I try to as well. So once again a big THANK YOU!
So this is my photo for my photo Monday. It’s pretty isn’t it? well I think so and my daughter thought so as well. As we sat in her car and the water went swooshing I believe that’s a word well will go with it because that’s how it sound as it went around us and the scent of bumble gum was in the air and the water just kept hitting every side of her car and the the lighted sign lite up telling us the car now was going to get wax sprayed on it and this is what formed on the windshield yes we are in a car wash hahaha and the wax was rainbow color . pretty amazing ….well we thought so if you haven’t figured it out yet ,well let me say it doesn’t take much to impress us and take a picture of it …yes we are crazy we where snapping away pics of this. If people could of seen us they would of thought we had some serious issues but sadly never saw colored wax. so I thought this would be perfect to post because it was just so different then my other photos I have posted. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.
This years Valentines Day was a quiet one , My husband and I where not feeling that great ..not surprised with everything that is going around at the moment so we ordered in from one of our favorite places enjoyed a quiet but delicious meal . Our kids where out so it was very quiet .. then we decides to settle in our bedroom and and get cozy under the the covers and watch our shows we watch on Tuesday nights and so we laughed mind you in between coughing and the kitty Miss Abigail scratching at our bed ….okay so not the most romantic night but lets see we will be celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary next week and that isn’t adding in the fact 4yrs together before that. we must be doing something right hahaha .and adding in sickness what can you do so we made the best of it . I must say the I loved it and it was so simple and cozy and nice, sometimes the littlest things are the most meaningful and memorable ,Didn’t I say in my past posts its the simple things in life that makes me happy.
