It was a Tuesday out and about with my daughter . The first part of it was spent at a doctors appointment that I knew would end up with different opinions ..I won’t even get started.. .but was happily worth it after enjoying lunch out with my daughter at Panera’s ,being once again a chilly day ,a cup of cheddar broccoli soup and grilled cheese tasted so good. Then followed it with a white chocolate Frappuccino with two pumps of raspberry in it from Starbucks . Only get them every so many months if that. It was a perfect treat .It was nice to catch up with my daughter talking about random things and laughing and being silly especially when we went to get her studded tires off and new tires needing to be on to pass inspection … yes another stop we needed to do . But that was more fun then my appointment. At the tire place it was so busy and people looked angry , impatient and some were sleeping in the leather chairs well fake leather but so comfy it felt like we were in a movie theater ,all in a row the chairs were with two screen TVs one with sports playing and one showing our last name and what bay her car was in , the estimated time of how long and oh a third screen showing the guys working on the cars . So we could see them changing her tires . Very interesting. I believe we sat there an hour laughing to ourselves while we texted back and forth to one another so we wouldn’t disturb the people around us … because everyone was so quiet . Either on their phones, reading, or concentrating on the screens and yes sleeping as I stated. Then my phone rang with my son appearing on the screen , I answered with such a whispering voice my son was like whispering back to me asking why I was whispering I told him and he was like oh okayyyy… 😂 I must say the hour went by quick . And my daughter was satisfied . I do not understand why everyone or for the most part a good amount of them looking so miserable. We were all their for the same thing tires that’s all they do. And it was quick. After that we headed for home , where leftovers for supper would be what I would be preparing. It’s amazing that it’s already going on 8 at night. Doesn’t seem possible. Well time to read some blogs and then my book . Have a great night everyone.🙂
I woke to a beautiful sunny morning after a restless night . I don’t believe it’s the evenings Starbucks white mocha with raspberry latte that was a decaf ,my daughter brought home for me when she was out with her boyfriend . It was so good . Early on Thursday I had showed her a Starbucks cinnamon spice shortbread cookie latte that they posted on Instagram telling my daughter how good and comforting it sounded, she stated that her and her boyfriend were headed that way and would bring me one home on their way back. Well I guess a lot of people saw the same Instagram post because they were out of the makings for that flavor so that’s when she brought me the next best flavor I mentioned. Anyway I don’t think that was the reason of my restless night . I’ve been thinking too much about the family of the husband , dad that was killed in the snowmobile accident.. my heart just breaks for them and I take it to heart too much…Only human… so after waking I jumped in the shower then grabbed my morning coffee and my daughters laptop and paid some bills online then finished with that and cleaned the kitchen up a bit and got ready to head out to see our tax guy to drop our taxes off for him to do. On the way home I called my daughter told her I was running to McDonald’s to grab a frappe and a bite to eat she said she wanted one and some fries so I treated us both to a mocha Frappe and some fries .Then headed home. We chatted for a bit while we enjoyed our drinks and food. It was a nice short conversation since she had to get ready for work. Whether big or small , 5 mins or an hour with her I’ll take it. . Supper is done and cleaned up and now just settling watching the nightly news with my husband . After I think I will read some more of my book . It’s getting good. Im happy I’m getting into it after being in a slump with reading. Saturday my husband and I will go food shopping and then he will start on his fasting and eating lightly for his annual colonoscopy on Monday that I will drive him too. So another quiet evening but I will not complain , not one bit! 🙂
A three day weekend is here! Monday’s a holiday, Veterans Day . Thinking and thanking all that have served and are serving and who will be serving, I state the last part thinking of my son who this Veterans Day is in Basic Training in Missouri . Missing him but so proud ❤️
It’s Saturday night and the wind is just roaring out there .. for one moment tonight we heard a bang or weird thunk and looked outside to see if something hit the house . But saw nothing unusual …for all we know it was Miss Abigail who has been running around this house all night , she probably jumped up on something in the back rooms. Today was food shopping day and it was crazy busy ..dodging people in every isle .My husband and I get home and realize we missed a few amount of items on our list due to people being so impatient 🙄waiting for you to move out of their way while your grabbing what we need, giving up and moving on to our next items on the list telling yourself will go back and grab what we miss but forget to and head to the checkout… so I’ll be going back before this weekend is over. After we came home put the groceries away and then went for a ride and grabbed some Starbucks lattes . Hooked on the Gingerbread flavor so good and comforting. My hubby enjoyed a Peppermint Mocha flavor. By the time we arrived homely hubby hitting every back road that headed home (loves them) it was just about dark out. We had some supper and now just settled in our bedroom under our covers keeping warm. Watching tv and still listening to the wind roaring . . I was going to try and finish reading my book but I think soon I’ll just call it a night. Tomorrow will be even colder out . So will probably just hang inside watch football and I’ll read my book . Earlier I got a notification that the SITs would be given a chance to call home on Monday at a time they stated so to be by our phones so my husband and I are looking forward to hearing from our son. I hope he has a decent amount of time to talk but will take whatever we can get . I received two letters from him on Friday and he said he received two of my letters so far .I was happy to hear that but wonder where the others are .. floating around somewhere. I am enjoying writing. It’s nice to write letters so miss this . That’s why I think I’m going to need to start that journal soon. I guess it’s time to get off here and say some prayers and get some sleep . Good night everyone.
A rough start to the day if you read my last post as of this afternoon ..the oil guy was so nice he called me around 4 this afternoon said the suns out things are melting let me give it another try thankfully hubby was home and sanded the driveway as he pulled in and yes we got oil. Then the evening sky turned dark not a very good sunset clouds moved in and it’s cold now . My daughter arrived home with a decaf mocha cherry flavored latte , Starbucks is only offering it until Valentines Day . It taste like a chocolate covered cherry ,omg so good. So thankful for her thinking of me ❤️ now for my son to arrive home from the gym with is girl friend /not , been doing this on and off for 3yrs ….okay that’s for another day hahaha any ways .. adult coloring and enjoying my latte 🙂
Today I realized that its been 4days of not being on Facebook , yes I know wow what an accomplishment 🙂 actually for me it is so to speak. IM alway on Fb or at least checking it out every morning…since I had an issue on it last week I took it off my phone things where posting on it that I didn’t do , my friends told me they where having the same issues so I changed the password and took it like I said of my phone. Now it’s on my IPad but my phone is always near by so I tend to go on it more there. I guess a blessing in diguise . This weekend I read more did more adult coloring and on Friday night I was home by myself I watched two movies and actually enjoyed them without distractions. It was so nice . Today I got so much done and then went with my daughter to Starbucks for a coffee butterscotch flavor so good. I must say it’s nice and I do not even feel like I’m missing anything . I do still have my Twitter on my phone but that doesn’t pull me in as much there’s really no drama on it . I just like to see what’s trending or Catching up on the news on it , So yes defiantly keep that on. This tech world can really take over …if you let it. Will see how long I will last. But I know one thing I will keep it off my phone . IM liking that I’m getting back into the reading and coloring and my nose is not in my phone all the time 🙂
Woke up got things going earlier around the house since the rain calmed down and the sun peaked of and on and my daughter had the day of we decided to spend the day together get out of the house so since I just got my subie back this week we took my car and went to grab some Starbucks all was going good it felt good to be driving my new car because if you have read my past posts I have not had an easy time with that car I have had more driving time with their loaner cars. So my daughter and I decided to look for the school my son would be starting is first Spring track meet for the season and we had to drive slow well I was going 10 to 15mph in their parking lot and my daughter turned the music down and says “do you hear that noise “? Im like nooo okay it was me in denial there was no way not too people outside the school could hear it and stared I just wanted to jump out and beat my car the noise started as a rubbing noise from the back right wheel when you got over 20 you didn’t hear it as much but when we got to our driveway the noise was a high pitch we just sat there my daughter was like so what are we going to do and I calmly grabbed my cell and called the Manger at the dealership again….but this time I was calmer not the radical person they had the last time. but straight to the point that I was disgusted and what where they going to do and he said we are going to have you bring it back and we will give you a loner and my people WILL as he emphasized it and check all the breaks and everything again I just sighed to myself again hmm lets say for the first time.but like I said I kept it to myself because their going to take care of it and I’m going to not over think this what do I expect new used car .
My new or trying to be new attitude let it go it’s a car I will have a car I am not stranded it’s life let it go….they will fix it . out of my hands .yes trying this let it go attitude need to for myself and especially my kid’s . let the little things go deal with the bigger be more happier carefree enjoy and be thank full for my blessings Believe me not an easy task for me letting things go I know somethings are not to be let go but over the years I have taken it to a bit of an extreme. Now I am going try to not be as uptight. …will see I will keep you posted how this is going, I will add one thing before I enjoy a movie with my family …Starbucks was so good and spending some laughing moments with my daughter was the best.
Today I got my subie back and had a nice ride home in it with my daughter we stopped off at Starbucks for a coffee and it was so nice, it’s not very often we get out together lately with her busy with work ..friends ..boyfriend.. in which case it should be. ..but I miss our outing, when we arrived home she grabbed her car and went off with a friend and I sat on our deck absorbing in the warm beautiful sun as I felt the eyes of Miss Abigail the kitty eyeing me at the open window and catching some sun herself.
