Saturday ride…country living.

It’s a balmy 47 degree day (hahaha) hubby and I went to the dump and then decided to get a coffee treat… calling it a treat because we usually just get a hot flavored coffee but we saw this banana split flavor frozen coffee and had to try . Okay this will defiantly be the only one unless they keep this for a bit because it would have to be a monthly treat … it was so filling .

We didn’t feel like going home just yet so decided to take a ride. My hubby loves back country roads so off we went . The coffee cold but inside the truck nice and warm as it spit snow on to the windshield. We went by a farm to see that sheep were out enjoying the sun . Saw the little lambs walking along with the older ones . Love listening to them such a beautiful sound of Spring .

We let them be and proceeded on with our ride. Defiantly country roads….

The grass is looking nice and green now . As you see the clouds moving in where the clouds that gave us some snow flakes. Thankfully nothing much but just proves how cold it is. Now home the house is nice and toasty . Everyone’s working so just hubby and I and Miss Abigail . The sun is out again the clouds have cleared a bit and shining so it’s shining in Nice and bright. Soon will be time to make some supper . Thinking Manwhich (sloppy Joes) and potato tots . Simple and filling. And some will be left for whoever of my kids will wants some when they get home from work. πŸ™‚


April Snow…

This is our Friday evening in New England in the hills. It’s cold and snowing it feels like February not April. I actually puked my coloring out which I usually only do in the winter with a cup of tea … hmm tea actually sounds nice right now . Here is a video of my world..


Ahh Friday is here which means a payday and bill day . Ughhh the dread but all done, as supper is cooking in my crockpot so love that contraption. The house is filled with the delicious aroma of pot roast cooking. House is clean for the most part . Now finishing my daytime show. As the house is quiet . Even Miss Abigail is not here .. well she is but has herself tucked away down in her place . Nice and comfy I’m sure. It’s a dreary cold day so she has the right idea. My son got a call back from one of the jobs he applied to , he has a in interview on Monday . I’m crossing my fingers and praying doesn’t hurt. They respect him being in the military so they understand about drills . So that is good. I know it’s a law they have to let him but they respect it which is the good part. For now he has his first weekend drill since being back from Basic Training this weekend. I guess it’s time to cook what sides will go with the roast. Of course it’s going to be mashed potato .. my family loves them! As I finish up on this post outside my window there is some snow coming down… yeah .. notπŸ˜₯

Photo Monday!

It’s Monday already! Hope everyone had a nice weekend . My weekend was even more low key with resting my sciatic pain and wondering what the weather was going to do. We thought by 8 last night and no snow had arrived we were good hmm.. woke to 8 inches …but being March it’s melting fast and the sun is out now . And temps are rising. Can’t complain. Okay here is my weekend in photos a bit of everything to even my hubby starting the kitchen… prepping it to be painted, our boarder after all these yrs gone and waiting for time for some coffee and catch up on the news .

Ahh signs of Spring.

Yes their predicting snow our way tonight … the good thing is they have lowered the amounts we are getting oh I hope their right . 3 to 5 inches …okay doable .. then the time it was suppose to start snowing keeps being pushed forward it was first 5 pm then 7 now it’s 8 pm. Okay this is not the sign of Spring … it’s these guys the top photo there is 4 turkeys their a bit camouflagedand their not little anymore. I believe their bigger then Miss Abigail and she knows it. She was watching them walk all around the back yard through the window . Her eyes so big. I was in my bedroom putting a few things away when out of the corner of my eye I saw out the window these guys walking by. Such a nice sign . Now they will be here in the mornings then the evenings until Fall. Love that their back, love seeing them. They have been doing this routine for the last two yrs . Last year there was babies which I believe these are the babies hopefully we will see some babies. . Will see. Supper is done and cleaned upI made Homemade Mac and cheese didn’t think I would like the orange sharp cheddar ,that’s all our local store had that wasn’t outrageously priced. I figured I would try it. Not bad, hubby liked it . Now I’m going to settle in read my book and get to bed hopefully earlier tonight . Miss Abigail kept us up jumping on my hubby scratching the bed then our window shade until my hubby brought her downstairs to her and my daughters place .My daughter out with her boyfriend texting me back at 1 when I texted her at ll:00 that she was downstairs watch when she came in. 😭 after that I had a hard time settling in with a good sleep with strange dreams .. so tonights goal is to read now then bed at 9 .πŸ™‚

Here we go again ..

Woke early to the sound of my hubby plowing well earlier then that but I’ll get to that after… anyways hearing the tractor I assumed we got more snow then predicted. I could see the sun coming through the side of the closed shades , ahh at least the sun was out so that’s good but knowing it wouldn’t warm up much if anything I’m hearing we will be in the -6 by tonight into Thursday. Here we go again these cold spells I believe are worse then the snow. My body is feeling the cold coming in I’m feeling a bit stiff. on my second cup of coffee I know it will not help but taste good (hahah) this afternoon it will change to a cup of decaf tea, while I watch my daytime shows. Getting back to waking up earlier … we’ll I didn’t talk to my son much last night I thought I would give him a break since the last few nights he was responding with one word answers finding out that after class and his chow time he was at the gym .. hmm why didn’t he just tell me that . πŸ™„ so last night if he texted then I would respond if not then I knew he was busy. My hubby giving in texted him and after awhile my son responded with a hi and then my hubby said we didn’t want to bother you but just wanted to say hi . Catching my hubby I just shook my head . In good humor tho my son responded with just relaxing doing nothing … ughh can’t win . I still let him be thinking if he wanted to chat with me he would since my hubby was getting one word answers after a bit. I can be such a mother hen I wanted to back off a bit hahaha I’m sure you know this about me reading my postsπŸ™‚and no he didn’t text me . But it was all good . My hubby and I were cold we decided to settle in our room him watching tv and playing a game on his phone while I tried to read yes tried … cannot get into the book I’m reading ,Milkman and no hope of getting to the library today I’m hoping when my daughter gets home from her boyfriends she may have a book I can borrow . Speaking of that ..she stayed at his house was going to come home but when going out to warm her car up she said the snow was coming down so fast and more then when they arrived there and his vehicle at the garage getting fixed she drove him home because of worrying about getting snowed in here well she got snowed in there . Which I’m happy she decided to stay there ,he lives at home while he saves up a bit more like my daughter is doing and it’s basically a big mountain he lives upon so their at a higher elevation so they tend to get more snow. The thought of her driving down the mountain in the snow at night by herself was not a thought I wanted to think of and that being said we had her kitty well cat , with us and being that there was nothing on tv and my book just bored me and no text from my son . I fell asleep at 10 . I couldn’t believe it so early for me, until I woke at 3 thinking it was much later then that I wanted to cry hahaha , not literally πŸ™‚ then I knew why Miss Abigail was scratching on our bed jumping up on the bed pawing at my hubby’s face (hahaha) he cant win if it isn’t a toilet paper roll ( need to read my post on that) it’s the cat. After trying to get her down and settle he woke . I was like oh great she has him up since he walked out to the kitchen . I settled under the covers more to find him coming back telling me he was just checking to see how much snow we got. Then that’s when I woke to him plowing

I grabbed my phone that was on my bedside table checking to see if my daughter texted nothing but a text from my son stating that he forgot to tell me last night that he received the book I had sent to him hmm.. I had a feeling if I didn’t text him last night I would get a text of some sort in the morning my instinct wasn’t to far off he says he knows I need him are his words he has stated many times but I think he needs me haha yeah we are a lot alike πŸ™„ . That was good to know tho that he received his book now he will be able to enjoy it. It’s 11:30 and I’m still enjoying my coffee after cleaning up the kitchen after breakfast . The washing machine is ready to go figuring do a load today then running it tomorrow being so cold may not be a good idea. The house is pretty much clean . My daughter isn’t home yet hope she isn’t stuck up their her cat is wandering all over the house ,I’m thinking she’s getting antsy for her to come home. Supper is going to be leftovers tonight and random things if no one wants the leftovers , we defiantly will not starve . Thinking spaghetti and meatballs and sausage will be good for tomorrow when the temps dip even more. I am not going to go out in this …. with hearing about a lot of people including my bestie falling on the ice this week I’m not pushing it. Well time to run the washer find some lunch and chat with my hubby. Have a good day everyone. Keep warm all of you who are getting affected due to the polar vortex .

Monday …

Well this three day weekend went by fast…. it was nice not having to be anywhere and having some down time . I know your probably thinking she always has down timeπŸ™„ but the thought of not thinking of what I need or didn’t do was nice .. I just cozied in under a blanket with my book , journal, tea or hot chocolate and yes my coffee. With some good conversation with my husband and daughter and her boyfriend. And texting quite a bit with my son in Missouri πŸ™‚ Sunday was a day of snow and then a beautiful sunset in the evening and ending the day with an amazing Lunar Eclipse I actually manage to stay up for. My daughter and her boyfriend did too. It took two hours . But it was defiantly worth it. Thankfully we watched it from my bedroom window, being that is was only 2 out there was no way I was going outside …bad enough the house was cold so getting into my bed with the electric blanket on felt good.

Today the temps stayed at 2 so I did not leave the house. My husband and daughter did they wanted to try a coffee from our local coffee shop down the road. There was an almond marshmallow flavored one so they brought me one back. So good . While they were out grabbing coffees I made Shepard’s pie for supper. And wrote in my journal. Chatted with my son not as much today . As he was enjoying his last day of his four day weekend relaxing with his army buddies and getting ready to start back up with their MOS classes for the week. And even earlier wake up he’s not looking forward too again. Back to routine tomorrow for my husband and daughter. While I run some errands . So I guess I will finish up one more thing and go settle under my blankets and read a bit before getting some sleep but not before I say goodnight to my son.
