Outside my door the winds have calmed the storms have passed ..for now. Settled in last night with my new book . After about 45 mins later I put my book down and shut the light off. It wasn’t that the book wasn’t good it was . I just wanted to lay there in the darkness and watch the flash of the lighting and hear the roll of the thunder . Love nighttime storms. As the storm came through flashing shadows on my wall I laid there taking it in thinking about the Memorial Day weekend approaching .. like everything things change. I know a part of life. Even if I wanted time to to stop it would not ..even for a moment . Even laying there watching the storm was different… my daughter at some friends house . My son tired from work in bed as well as my hubby just I watching it .No kids running into the bedroom or sitting in our living room watching counting between the lightening flashes. Just I … As this Memorial Day approaches this will not be the same as well. Yes they’ll be a cookout ,bonfire on one of the days but less around the fire. but our hearts with them . No friends sleeping over , no sleeping out in a tent and being waken by kids running in as fast as they can to sleep on the living room floor because they heard something in the woods. No movie nights with buckets of popcorn and wide eyed kids as they watched .No just my hubby and I watching a movie , or sitting and watching the stars , taking a ride . As our door swings open and close as my kids come and go from work. I will embrace this change and then the next one and the next one. But for now I will embrace this moment . with a smile on my face and also a tear in my eye.
Rainy dark morning …thankfully the thunderstorm has subsided and now just rain , it’s scary when you notice a storm is just not a simple storm anymore they are so strong and damaging . My prayers go out to the Carolinas and the other states in the path of hurricane Florence ,I have been watching the weather channel and Twitter is doing a good job of tracking this and giving out a lot of info . She’s a monster and no chance of slowing down. It’s stated that the storms are so and getting more powerful because the ocean water is warmer Hmm .. sounds like Global warming to me . Some may debate this but so be it . That’s for another time let’s just keep all that are in it’s path in your thoughts and prayers
It’s about 8:20 on another stormy Friday night. Pitch black out already actually has been since 7:45… humid still …it feels like it will never break. Woke a bit early to catch a ride with my son who had a massage appointment .. his shoulders have been very tight so the Dr. suggested this . Plus I think he enjoys it …who wouldn’t .. I love going in with him even tho I do not need to sit in the waiting room for him now that he’s 18 it’s much better then waiting for him with the car running you walk in and this lady is such a beautiful person , there this energy of calm and peacefulness ,the lights are low, candles here and there , soft comforting music playing. Plus the seats are like big reading leather recliners but they don’t recline .. you get the picture. So when my son went in for his massage the lady at the desk came over and we chatted about the energy around us and then I told her about the last couple of dreams I had that were so strange to me and anyone else I’ve tried or would tell . .. but she was so amazing trying to figure out what they could mean. Yes I love all this kind of things. It’s intriguing to me. When she had more customers come in I started reading my book. Just so relaxing their she had offered me tea it sounded so good but if it had been cooler out I would of said yes. After my son was finish we went to the shopping place I wanted to go to I had a gift card so I bought a lamp that my son had bought for the den that I just loved and I also bought a bean bag chair need more seating in my living room if we all want to watch tv together . Since the futon couch has ended up in the den and my other couch is my hubbies spot and the recliner is mine (hahaha) so we are saving up for another big couch. So for now I bought this bean bag chair let’s say it’s ugly the only color they had was blue so it doesn’t go well in the living room with our color scheme but my daughter loves it. It is very comfortable. They ran out of black which is what I wanted . Well I will cover it with a black seat cover. That should work for now. Any ways my son just came home with a friend, my daughters birthday tomorrow so she is and will be out off and on through out her weekend …tomorrow we will have family over for cake and ice cream and then she will be back out with her boyfriend and friends, 23 it still so unbelievable. .. so my hubby and I are in bed with the baseball game on and I have my book on my lap . We can hear the thunder rolling in and flash of lightening here and there. I think I will get back to my book before it gets late and getting some sleep🙂
Thinking to call it an earlier night would be good .. to no avail it hadn’t. I settled in with my sleeping other half , closed my eyes and to have them open to the sound of thunder that shook the house and felt the like it was rumbling beneath us , then the lightening followed that was so blinding it woke my other half up ..he looked at me and even though it was dark I know he saw the disgust on my face. So we laid there watching, listening and chatting . Miss Abigail did not like it she jumped onto the bed and cuddled next to my other half. It’s now morning and the coffee is helping my tiredness. Sadly Miss Abigail is being a terror . If you can see in the picture she is not liking me watching the news she is all over the house this morning as well.maybe she doesn’t like news( hahaha) this is becoming a very bad habit of hers… I see that both kids made it home , when who knows but them still in bed at 11 gives me a good idea.🙄 thankfully the sun is shining and it’s windy I’m hoping the temps stay cooler , one could only hope. My coffee is finished and news is not pretty I guess Miss Abigail was trying to tell me something . Time to get my errands done for the day . Have a good day everyone.
When skies look like this on one side then it’s still sunny , not good I think it’s making for some severe storms coming in … plus with the humidity worse today not good…
It’s 8:00 on a Friday night, My kids are both home and settled in both tired.. My other half and I are also settled in ,the house is quiet and dark … no Tv at the moment ,only the sound that is breaking though the quietness is the rumbling of thunder that feels like it’s going under the house and the closeness of the flashes of lightening that is a bit worry some but also a cozy feeling. It’s nice to have no tv on it’s peaceful.. It’s been a beautiful day despite the storms , my kids bought me a cake for my birthday and with my other half some gift”s and my other have also bought me a beautiful summer bouquet with some of my favorite flowers. roses in it. It was a nice simple birthday. My other have had to work so I spent my day with my two blessings .then we all sat down together and ate dinner and then enjoyed sone cake and laughter after though making a wish and blowing out the candles that is a have to I’ve alway make sure we do. As well as tomorrow when the extended family will come to celebrate my sons 18th birthday. With more cake and pizza that will go home with people after🙂 then on Sunday we may welcome a new edition to our family .. my son found a two yr old cat in need of a home his name is Figaro as in the cats name in the childhood movie Pinocchio , he is a beautiful friendly cat as we are told I hope so I’m already falling in love with him on the computer so we will see how we all relate to one another if all goes well will bring him home .wish us luck . It will be nice to have a friend for Miss Abigail my daughters cat and something for my son to relax with until he leaves for Basic Training and Fir myself to take care of which I do best is taking care of people and animals.
The storm has passed but I believe it’s one of many through out the night. If only it would break this humidity so we can give the air conditioners a break. Well time to read my book , my 500 page one . My daughter bought me the book sharp objects that’s an HBO series it looks so good so I have plenty of books to read, my son and other half are helping to save up money for a new couch we desperately need now that we moved the futon into the new clean spare room where it fits much better. Well time to read , Good night everyone.
