Half way through the week. Where did it go ? The last couple of nights we have all settled in to a good night sleep , or I should say much better. The house is quiet after a morning of a busy noisy kitchen …. blender making smoothies the sound of eggs frying ,the fridge opening closing you know all the morning sounds in the kitchen. Now it’s quiet except for the rumbling of the laundry going with my sons camou in it that he wanted freshly watched for his 1st drill this weekend back home . My daughter getting ready for work . It’s 1:30 already I’m looking at the tv off and on as I write this … my daytime soap is on. Not getting into it as much today . Always days like this when you watch soaps🙄 The washing machine has stopped and now replaced with the roaring of the wind that has picked up. The sun is out and I did see some action in the nature department lol we had a Fox in our yard eating from our compost . He looked like a baby . It’s not a very clear picture. But you will get the adjust of this cutie without scarring him away. Our grass is not greening in yet from the long winter and our water in the fountain has finally melted so my hubby will soon clean it out put fresh water in and by then the ground will green up and the flowers will bloom around it. For now finishing the kitchen up. and enjoying the everyday comings and going of my family.🙂
It’s 10:30 at night and as I lay here in the darkness of my room it’s amazing how peaceful it is . My house is quiet but yet it’s not .I can hear my husband next to me softly sleeping , And then the sound of my son and his friends quietly talking and laughing down the hall. Occasionally hearing the door to the refrigerator opening and closing. ..Boys always hungry. Off in the distance I can hear a train on the tracks rumbling along through the night ,surprisingly over the sound of the fan my husband cannot sleep without and now I have now grown accustomed too, off and on I hear the furnace turn on and occasionally the sound of Miss Abigail jumping around downstairs hopefully not keeping my daughter awake . Playing with something she found. Soon we will hear the coyotes has they make their way through our woods at night and the cry of an owl going after it’s prey . The night some times so quiet and peaceful yet active and alive. As I drift off to sleep I am content . And feel blessed of this simple life my husband and I have made.
Tonight was beautiful the sounds of the night was peaceful but eerie with the trains whistle echoing along the mountains and river that Is home to the tracks ,the moon shined above, the photo made it look like a fool moon almost there. The little colored lights are my solar power Lilly pads floating in our fountain . I’m shocked they still worked. We have had them for a couple of yrs the peepers where out in full force they have very vocal lately . I hope you enjoyed the photos and video , yes this is a part of my world . I love spending the evening and nights out on my deck it’s very soothing and it gives my overthinking mind a break 🙄
Good Morning! enjoying my coffee while the deck has shade before the sun takes over it, when the sun is shinning down on it ,it’s unbearable sadly.. right now it’s beautiful sitting out here listening to the fountain making rippling sounds like when your near a beautiful lake and the water is flowing over the rocks. Today the sounds of a woodpeckers echoing in the woods near by . When I finally dragged myself out of bed after watching a very late movie last night I walked out to a kitchen that looked like a bomb exploded …yes morning with the men … so I just grabbed some coffee and headed out to my deck …it can it would wait.
The sky is so blue and there is s bit of a breeze it feels nice. The squirrels are running around gathering as much of the bird seed they can get before the birds come . Oh if they only knew it wasn’t for them . My daughter is sleeping in and my son must of went back to bed or is just in his room after his early morning gym. He is on his last week of classes and only has two so he goes in later then championship track practice. Soon this will be all done and he will begin his next chapter in life called growing up (hahaha) every time he has a complaint I tell him welcome to the real world it’s called growing up he just rolls his eyes at me. He has so much on his plate I think he overwhelms himself. So I keep saying to him one step at a time one day at a time and it will be less over whelming . I do not know if he takes this advice… he agrees with me.but I think to humor me. I taking my advice to get through everything . Thinking about all this is over whelming for my hubby and I as well . The last one to graduate and the baby…..
Monday evening was spent outside with my hubby him enjoying a beer and I with my book with some chatting between us and of course the sound of nature, couldn’t resist recording the sounds we heard around us , The sound of the evening was over flowing with peepers and you can hear a Cardinal also ,as we caught site of it . I put my book down and just enjoyed. With my hubby ,Such a beautiful sound.
it’s Sunday night and we are All home, yes I emphasized all because it’s a rare occurrence that we are all home at night early and settled in. The reason I posted this photo is in my posts I sometimes state that I can hear the whistle of a train in the distance when all is quiet as I’m trying to sleep , this is the train tracks of that or those trains .. they sit about a mile away but you can hear the trains for miles as it echos up the valley . I love the look of them because they just seem endless . Always loved to sit close by as a teenager and write in my journal especially around Fall time a cozy but an eerie feeling .
Same as sitting in an abandon covered bridge in my town etched with names of all the teenage kids I will admit my name is their as well that would hangout or shield them self’s from rain when being with friends ..what you did living in a small town in the country. It was always eerie how the wind would blow through the old bridge making it creak.. just like the eerie sound of that train whistle .. at the moment I can’t hear it at that matter I can’t hear anything but 80″s music coming from the TV because my hubby is reliving his youth for the moment hahaha, my hubby roaming through channels and found it . I guess he’s had enough thank goodness now it’s time to shut down the tv and computer and get some sleep and maybe I will hear that lonely sound of the train whistle after all..
