Half way through the week, with a three day weekend ahead of us ..that is good for my other half. At 7:30 last night as I was just settling to read my book when my phone rang with a message. It was my son! I opened the message to Hey! How are you? I replied quickly not knowing how much time he had on it . I asked if he had it for good this time, he stated “yes I do , but only after classes and supper time until 9 when we have to get sleep then phones need to be put in our lockers. “Weekends all day until 10 because we go to bed an hr later. ” It was nice to catch up with him and see how he was doing . He likes his class and the job he chose for his MOS ..Civil Engineering. and has made a lot of good friends but missed home and all of us. I told him I was happy he was doing good . We chatted off and on until 9 then we both shut our phones down and went to bed (hahaha) yes I did too ..early for me but it felt good under the blankets and I had to be up earlier then usual to bring my other half’s truck to the garage with my daughter bringing me back home after leaving it there ..and my daughter needing to get to work. So now outside my window it’s cloudy and cold but not as cold as it was. Another quiet day but things are done around the house a pork roast is cooking in my faithful crockpot . Making the house smell delicious. I’m just waiting for my day time shows to come on and then when my other half gets home from work will go pick his truck up. later my son should be on or call . Simple day…. I’m getting through my book and must say it will be nice to actually finish one from the library . That last couple of them I just couldn’t get into but then again it was around the holidays and so a lot was going on I just couldn’t focus on the story. It’s a good time to read now. With this month dragging on , hmm ..well I must say it’s been a bit faster getting through then usual . Another month and two weeks and my son will be back . Then it won’t be as quiet around here with his comings and goings . I guess I shouldn’t get too use to the quietness ..next Fall if he gets into one of the colleges he is planning .. hoping for to do ROTC along with is Army National Guards duty. It will once again be quiet. For now I will enjoy the quietness. It looks like a stormy weekend coming the ground will soon be covered in white. That being said the grocery stores will be packed with people loading up with food for a weekend stuck inside plus the big game on Sunday seeing if our team plays in the Super Bowl. Yes a big football Sunday . Well my show is coming on going to make a nice cup of tea and enjoy my show. 🙂
The wind is roaring once again. Even tho the sun is peeking out between the clouds it’s still cold and January ugh.. yes not my month. The house is clean no rumbling of the washing machine going . A quiet afternoon . That being said I helped myself to an afternoon cup of coffee and going to enjoy my day time shows . My letters are sent out especially one for my son. Hopefully it gets to him sooner then the last ones.
This new year I’m trying to make it as a time for more peace of mind .. letting go of my kids more as a disciplinary parent but a parent of two adult kid’s and being someone they can come to if they need advice and no judgement just letting them lead the life they choose . And I’m thinking this will make us even closer if that makes sense ? So Im going to try to relax my mind that can think way too much and let go of the status of what everyone else is doing not matter to me. I go onto Facebook and I’m seeing how this person and that person is doing this and that and then feel like I should be doing things also yes I know Facebook is so good for that. but sadly it’s not what I want to do . I want to spend more time doing things that put my mind at peace and do for me and my family, I feel like I need to stop being a people pleaser to those who really do not care . Let me just say this is going to be a very hard habit to break. But I Hope journaling ..blogging will help this. And to stop feeling guilty when I say no to something . It’s a funny thing my son has this trait of mine as well ,making everyone happy but then after realizes he made the wrong people happy then the ones he should of ,even tho he doesn’t need to make people happy but the point is he always looks back and feels the guilt creep up on him like I do. He’s young he has time to learn. I’ve been doing this too long and so now I’m deciding that it’s time for me to do this for myself. and that will make for a happier me and my family. Life’s funny they say our life is our own but why do we for the most part want or do or be what everyone is. A question I ask myself often. I am simple and I live simple I like to just spend time with my family my close friends , read, write , enjoy my coffee , shows adult coloring, long rides with my husband, making my house what I want, laughing over silly things,late night conversations with daughter . Goofing with my son. That’s what I want and need. So again why do I ask myself the question I just stated.?
Finally finished my page , not because it took awhile but because so many things keeping me from finishing it. Busy with appointments errands to run, writing letters to my son that I look forward to and love doing so much ❤️, then some nightly reading.. my library books hmm now I know why I was buying books ,the due back dates … ahh yes when you get a book from the library we need to share …. then there is all the amazing nightly tv shows this season. When there isn’t enough time in a day . It’s all good tho . Here is my coloring page . I think I like how it turned out. It was a fun one.
Today it felt like Fall the air was fresh crisp and cool .. the sun was out but it was just perfect after finishing things around the house and pulling myself away from the news or I would get more disgusted then I already was .. what’s going on lately in politics is a bit too much . I do not talk politics on social media sites I follow or to anyone but my family my husband , kids , the rest of the family no. So not here on my blog as well …with that said it was a beautiful day my kids off doing their own thing so it was a quiet afternoon I took advantage of the nice weather and enjoyed sometime outside. . Tonight enjoying a hot cup of hot chocolate since it’s a cool night and I’m feeling cold . I enjoyed some adult coloring also while chatting with my husband since the night was as quiet as the afternoon was. Just Miss Abigail roaming around the house making noice. Now hubby is watching some football and I think iI will watch with him and my son who just happened to walk through the door and sat now .. I will take the moment when I can .good night everyone.
The sun is shining , my daughter is headed to a concert with a friend for the night. My son at his last weekend army drill until he leaves in Oct. ..food shopping is done , chili made and simmering in crockpot for supper ,washing machine humming in the back ground as alway (hahaha) house is clean so now eating some lunch and then I think I will sit outside on my swing and do some adult coloring . While hubby is working on his barn. Then a evening of chili and watch some football on the tv . .. maybe my son will join us after the drill and drive he will want to settle with us to be ready to do it all over again tomorrow. A nice simple weekend . Hope everyone enjoys their day🙂
Hi everyone it’s Photo Monday almost forgot . Hubby’s off this week so we took a pleasant ride and then grabbed lunch out it was nice . Now home and my hubby was outside and found this ,this one is perfect ! As you see the leaves are changing already. I love the reds . Hope you enjoy..
It’s a cloudy Saturday ,storms will be arriving later this afternoon . Enjoying my coffee on our deck before they come . This is just some pics of what I call home, my world. Country ..simple living ,comfort, quiet, yes very peaceful. Even on a cloudy day. Everyday day we are visited by turkeys and their little ones also I believe two fox’s maybe three. Yes nature as well oh we can’t forget the many squirrels and birds that run around . On occasion we have our two does that appear for a bit. I haven’t seen a moose yet , my husband has
while he was here when we were building the house .
My son had told us while up at his girlfriends house this past week that is about 30 minutes away they decided to star gaze in this open field across from her house so they walked out there and my son could hear this huffing sound and it kept getting closer he told his girlfriend to walk back to the house don’t run just walk but go ..she didn’t hesitate did what he said , it was just getting dark so you could see a bit away in front of you he saw a moose he said it must of had calf’s around because it was not happy in its protecting mode staring right in our direction and regardless they love to make a run towards you. So he made loud noises and it backed away as he slowly walked away keeping his eyes on it . It did walk away and he made it back to her house she said what was it he told her a huge moose . He said you should of saw her eyes. He admitted it scared him because he knows how mean they can get So yes there are moose around as well🙂I guess I’m okay if I do not see one.as I sit here there is a cool breeze that is picking up I’m thinking air conditioners could take a break and open windows up and let some fresh air in always look forward to windows open.
