Saturday Evening..

it’s unbelievable how it’s the weekend already , one more day and spring vacation Is over. My son did what I thought, if you read my recent posts … all vacation he was home every night and then after his Friday track meet he went out with friends and midnight came and I was like oh good he’s home before driving curfew ..then in walked my daughter hmm okay my oldest home before my youngest.. of course happy she was home safe but now where was my son, So I texted him please check in he replied back we are all together at a friends house I will be home . Okay well hmm when I thought . My daughter came up from her place and asked where is he did he check in ? told her yes . So we went in to the living room now both wide awake . As my hubby was sleeping away .. 12:40 hit and no son so I texted are you really at a friends ? He sends back a photo of them all sitting at his friends house that looked familiar and they where sitting around a board game so I told him just stay over it’s late .

My daughter and I stayed chatting in the dark yawning in between sentences 🙂 but not wanting to stop because we where enjoying the moment to chat , it’s been awhile since we stayed up at all hours of the night chatting ..summer is coming this is when we seem to stay up and have these chats . The best moments. It hit a little after 2 and we both agreed it was time to get some sleep.

7:00 in the morning came quick the room was bright from the sun shinning in …tried to go back to sleep for a bit but my hubby and I gave up so we got up made some coffee and breakfast , showered and was out the door at 10 for food shopping . My son came home early morning and already was ready to leave for a run when we walked in the door . After he came back my son and I went and cleaned the car and took a ride and chatted it was all his idea so that was another moment that I have missed . I must say it was a nice. Simple weekend with moments that where as simple but lasting cherish moments . Having some time with both of my kids that are so hard to get now that their older I must say is priceless .

Our Night Out !

Tonight my hubby and I went out for our Wedding Anniversary that is actually tomorrow but celebrated earlier at our favorite Pub in town . It’s quaint and cozy ,my hubby started off with a beer and I had a cappuccino , I’m not much of a drinker . As we enjoyed those we enjoyed them with a nice light conversation in the cozy atmosphere . Love how you can looks over the water . It was busy for a small place but it was so calming our meals came and we had to pack them to go we just couldn’t finish it all .. we did share a dessert you never leave with out a dessert and you can see from the photo well worth it My hubby decided to finish the time with a coffee. too It was a very beautiful .night. Nothing like a simple place Then we came home to a quiet house and decided to watched a movie our daughter told us about , 47meters … okay if you do not like to be under water do not watch … oh my it was an exhausting movie hahaha … now we are cozy in bed it’s a cold night looking at freezing rain and rain coming in tonight. So a sleep late kinda of morning I hope . .. why not ❤️

Awake …

So once again another snowstorm is coming in actually already here and all the Schools and some business are closed tomorrow already. My son has two of his buddies over for the night and so the house is filled with occasional sounds of laughter or razzing each other as guys do . My daughter and I sat at the kitchen table talking and laughing for awhile as she tried to help me sign up for Pinterest …she has no patience when it comes to helping me with this kind of thing . My hubby was in bed because he has work in the morning. Now I’m settled in bed my daughter made a cup of tea and is enjoying it in her place with a book and Miss Abigail. Nights like this as simple as it is are always special to me. ❤️

Nights Thinking… 

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 .   

Active night…

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 .
