I woke late after a not so early night. I had hope for since feeling under the weather all Sunday. I settled in bed earlier enough with my book desperate to relax under the warm blankets and read . I really want to start reading my newest book I bought with my son. I read about two chapters mind you the chapters are not very long to the next , my eyes kept closing but my mind kept wondering where my son was he had been gone from early afternoon and said he would be home for supper …well the plate sat wrapped in the oven waiting for him. Time ticked on. My daughter who came home from work was now settled down in her place with Miss Abigail. Around 9 I gave in shut the light off and laid there. A bit into laying there my phone dinged it was my son letting me know he would be home late don’t wait up … what every mother loves to hear but does the opposite. My daughter then rang my phone asking if he was home I told her she said he’s fine go to bed. So once again I settled in. As I closed my eyes I heard through the quietness of the house a barking noice then a yipping noise that turned it to a loud eerie howl . Oh the boys were back or at least one of them …thinking this boy (coyote) is living in our woods. My daughter came up and said do you hear that it’s so loud . I was shocked she could hear it. Well once again wide awake. About midnight my son texted Home in driveway go to sleep now … he knows me too well . I told him about the coyote he texted oh good will tame him. I laughed to myself .. Then he was off and I heard him walk in. Next thing I know it’s 8:30 in the morning . Rain coming down hitting the window. Can you say no let it still be night (hahaha) even though I felt a bit better I laid there in bed taking in the quietness of the rain . Soon after my kids were banging around in the kitchen and the sound of coffee cups being set on the counter had me up and showered and heading for one of those cups. Ahh coffee always helps. So that was my night hoping for a earlier night tonight. afternoon was nice my daughter and I took a ride it was a perfect rainy cold day for a drive thru Starbucks for my first pumpkin spiced latte for the season …So good. Now it’s night time my sons home reading in his bedroom my daughters with her boyfriend catching up on American horror stories down in her place. I will read a bit while hubby is laying here next to me watching Monday Night football. Then I will get some sleep it’s still raining so hopefully the boys are sheltering themselves deep in our wood and staying quiet tonight. We will see.
This day flew by as fast as the evening did it’s 10:00 at night as I write this . I was going to read but then got sidetracked on here so reading my book may wait another day. Nothing like getting on your phone to search something and before you know it your on everything else. Sitting in the living room with Miss Abigail country awards is blaring from the TV really not watching just listening to the bands as my hubby is asleep in bed .the kids are out as usual .. times have change no more curfews for my youngest now that he’s 18 my oldest has her own entrance into the house whenever she gets home. Now to say I do not worry a bit when their out would be a joke.. moms always worry . Trying though to be better about it . I know it’s only 10 , I could read but I know that will bring me to 2in the morning. I guess I will call it a night and settled into bed with my sleeping hubby and air conditioner. Good night everyone.
The most comforting summer night sound as your drifting off to sleep …
An early Friday night settled in watching a bit of tv but soon I know the tv will be going off ..early morning will come quick. My son has packed is things for his big track meet and will be out of the house by 6:40 in the morning to catch the bus with his team at the school. He is now in bed hopefully sleeping having a hard time with that this school yr . He has always been a great sleeper. So I’m thinking stress … a lot on his mind. As this new journey I am on he is on his own new journey as well. I believe it’s a bit over whelming for him at the moment but he has his goals his believes and if he holds on to them he will be fine .I told him take it one day at a time do not over think just relax you did everything you needed to do now relax a bit ….and this is coming from a women who over thinks everything. Well it’s easier to say to someone 🙂I still learning… well it’s getting time to shut the tv down and get up early to see him off . Have a good night everyone.
it’s a Thursday night almost to the weekend . Ahh one that is whatever we feel like doing ..grabbing a coffee taking a ride maybe go to our favorite Pub or no plans at all a movie at home . .. nice . Well the wind blew like it was having a tantrum last night if your read my last post . It was horrible but luckily we didn’t loose power or trees. Woke to the sun shining but very cold , Mother Nature is not ready to release Spring yet. The day was once again quiet no arguing no in and out of the door , everyone came home from work and School and settled in for the evening . All went smoothly .. now it’s night and the winds have calmed hubby and are watching he finale of our show .my son just made a cup of tea and went to his room . He’s been having a heard time sleeping so he has been drinking tea to help him sleep . I think we could all use some tea. Hoping when we get through prom , graduation and settle with college things will relax a bit. For now just getting through day by day. I really need to color and read . Well I’m actually yawning earlier for once so I guess I will get some sleep . Goodnight everyone.
it’s a rainy night actually enjoy it love rainy nights it’s a reminder that Spring is here and soon summer will be ,really nice when the windows will be able to be open at night more , love the sound of the peepers and crickets , you can here the trains whistle clearer which can be kind of an eerie sound as well as the boys ( coyotes) howling or hunting in our woods. Part of living in the country . Happy to say we are all home tonight settle in our beds . It’s a nice feeling for a change . I think Miss Abigail is happy to have my daughters bed tonight when she isn’t home Miss Abigail cannot settle so she roams the house or scratches at our bed. When my daughter went down to Their place she happily went along ahead of her 🙂 now the TV is off replaced by the humming of the fan so off to sleep soon here you can hear my sons fan as well … yeah it’s a thing my family does cannot sleep without a sound of a fan blowing. I’ve adapted to it wasn’t always my thing . Well eyes are getting heavy time for some sleep . Good night everyone in my part of the world .
Life of a cat…I’m amazed how they can sleep anywhere and make it look comfortable. To be a cat had to share 🙂
