So it’s a quiet night no friends just the Fam and we are all settled in the only sound I hear is the humming of the air conditioner and for the moment my husband snoring softly…hmm this may get a bit noiser . My son is still recovering from Saturday’s Spartan race thought he could try practice after school because he told us it felt better to keep moving then sitting is legs tighten up sitting . Well he came home and was walking like a mummy once again so I believe he over did it…. always never does anything half way all or nothing. So he ate and showered and at 7:30 was in bed for the night. My daughter has just arrived home from work so just before her coming home we heard this noise yes always noises with us…but it was like a rumble or rolling something around kind of noise so my husband said oh I believe he’s up im telling him no when our son goes to bed that’s exactly what he does. So my poor husband starts walking through the house , went down to my daughters downstairs back into check our son …nothing but still noise so he went outside comes in whips open the bedroom window says listen we waited and I heard it in the distance, it sounded like a grand finale of fireworks but where and why ? It’s a Tuesday night .. so strange my husband was just happy I heard it and he figured it out instead of thinking he was loosing his mind hahaha but anyways so strange why? … always something .
Today was a day full of unexpected surprises for instance as I was enjoying my morning coffee I was looking to see what was treading on Twitter , yes I’m a twitter fan so I came up on an an article that was saying how there was an attacking squirrel in one of the New York Parks and it attacked 5 people I was shocked . Any how I signed out and started laundry and Then proceeded into the living room to tidy up things you know always something needs to be picked up.or wiped down. I heard a clunk and then a persistent tapping my daughters friend heard it as well so we started looking around first we thought it was the washing machine … nope ok well we then found it and it was looking right at us on top of my deck chairs a squirrel and it was literally pressed to my window that doesn’t have a screen luckily we do not open that side . Well it was tapping with it’s claws at my window then jumped into it and got back up on chair and was staring at us again it all happened so fast , her and I screamed and the thing ran up on to the deck railing along it stopped and stared at us . My daughters friend screamed shut the door before it comes through the screen oh I did …. we just stood there looking at one another and I thought of that darn article …and wondered what the heck is wrong with these squirrels so crazy thankfully he hasn’t been back , after things where done and supper started I turned on a channel that one of my oldie but goodies 80″s show came on 7th Heaven haven’t seen this showing since the end of winter I was happy ! The ironic thing it was an episode of the kids growing up and the parents seeing through their eyes them as children but then it brings them back to being older and the parents are seeing that they need to let go . Hmmm what I have been struggling with can you say sign? Now if you asked my son he would argue that he does not believe in signs or superstitions okay some superstitions I don’t but signs YES! What do you think do you believe in signs? Let me know. Time to go and have some supper.
So we found out that Miss Abigail is afraid of the sound of owls if you read last night’s post we thought the boy’s …coyote where howling figured it out it was owls. Miss Abigail was hiding its strange because the boy’s do not scare her so it was strange to see this reaction. My daughter came home a little bit after and I didn’t think to warn her of the noise…she heard but something different because she told us when she got out of her car and was walking up to the door she heard branches cracking in the woods and dropped everything in her hands getting in the door the wildlife was out and about more then usual and there wasn’t even a full moon. A strange night. Indeed It should be quiet tonight because it’s a rainy cool one things should be settled in and staying warm and dry. Will see.
It’s been a brutally cold Saturday so my husband and I where fine to stay home today and keep warm . We decided since we where home and the kids where off doing their things we would watch a movie so we thought humor drama sad romance hmm…well we decided on humor would be nice to laugh. The movie we chose was Sausage Party …Oh boy hmmm well what a pick hahaha okay we really did not know what we were in for .let’s say maybe animated but so not for kids well under 16.it was so nasty I can’t even begin to describe how nasty ..and we will never look at food the same for awhile….Oh it was not what I was expecting okay it was funny but literally just bad .So my Son did warn us not to one day when my daughter said watch it …well she came home from work and saw that we where watching it and went into hysterics and she just couldn’t believe the looks on our faces hahaha I think she liked seeing us look awkward .So that was our night and I am still trying to get it out of my head, I hope I do not dream about singing food tonight yeah you ha e to watch it to understand or not. .well time to call it a night
What a crazy weekend my kids were actually home at night…I was able to sleep in then sit and relax and enjoy my coffee or two, so nice on Saturday night the night to change our clocks forward I was strolling through Twitter and I was laying in bed with my husband and I was telling him how my soapy was because someone posted about it with a photo of a scene and it was the guy that played the psycho the bad guy and I had posted 2 things about it and my husband was like get the phone out of my face jokingly so I said fine them I shut it off and went to sleep that night I dreamed I was in the soap and the that scene …it was so strange hahaha never done that but the strangest thing the next morning I turned my cell on and noticed to notifications to likes on a tweet I posted about the soap and it was the from the actor that played the psycho, bad guy.. and it truly was him my daughter checked it out…. such timing. Yes this is so random but just had to share it. can’t see that happening again or anytime soon especially my kids being home at the same time and on a weekend hahahaha.
After I posted my last post which I believe was Monday night , at 2 in the morning I woke suddenly to a pacing husband a non stop shaking whining dog I noticed why the time on the clock was blinking telling me right then we had lost power for a moment ,Then I heard the wind I sat up and that is when my husband filled me in about the most creepiest powerful loudest wind I think I had ever heard….It sounded like a dozen freight trains coming our way and they where going to go right through our house it just wouldn’t stop it was constant whipping. our windows rattled and my husband told me how our tree ‘s were literally bent over so not good when your house is surround by trees so we sat and prayed that the wind would stop but it didn’t my daughter came up from her live in basement checking to see if we knew what was going on followed by her cat who looked as shook up as my dog. My Son slept right through it all he can sleep through anything,.I wish I could of that night. just as we were thanking god that the lights only went out for a minute they went out again and never came back on until this morning ironically at 2 this morning which now is Wed… so at 3 that night my husband started up our generator happy to have it so we could at least keep the furnace and water pump and fridge going . which is more then some have unfortunately. we have been there so many times that we decided if we were going to live where we did we needed one, our section of town is always the last to get power back. so by the time that was set up it was 4 in the morning and my husband and daughter and son had to be up at 6 because they still had work and school…2hours if that of sleep not fun. I stayed home and kept an eye on the generator and animals that just paced half the day . I would like to say a quiet day it was not all of you do know how loud a generator is if not okay it’s very loud…. you can’t help but not hear it.so it has been a very interesting tiring last couple of days. must say though the sunset this evening shining into my living room was beautiful .. here are some pics of the sunset oh!! and the tree that split and fell over the entrance of our driveway which could of been a lot worse.and the debris of trees cluttering the driveway also.
