It’s a cool Monday night . Outside the sky is speckled in stars and the crescent moon bright enough to cast shadows along the edges of our woods. The frogs you can hear in the distance and firefly’s are out and about making it look magical as they light up the ground and the trees . Inside the house is quiet and dark as everyone including Miss Abigails is tucked away in their rooms for the night. I thought I would take advantage and cozy up on the couch and enjoy my next new book.
My mind changed quickly as I saw the front outside light turn on . It’s probably just an animal running through the yard… but no I couldn’t leave it at that , my imagination got the best of me. Earlier on Facebook there was a post that someone escaped from the jail around 2pm and they still hadn’t found him. To keep a look out. Now it’s about an hour and a half away from where he escaped and honestly I do not think he would come our way it would be too easy to get caught. But sadly my imagination wouldn’t let it go so I shut the light off checked the doors again . And ran down the hall to our bedroom ( hahaha) now I’ve tucked myself in bed . This is the girl who just received a stack of Stephen King books from my sister to read … hmm will see how that goes . Ridiculous … right? It’s been a strange day so why not top it off with a strange night. ..Spooking myself I really good at. 🙄
If you read my recent post from the day before.( Wed ) I posted about setting into finish reading my book and stated about a storm warning coming across the TV screen as we were getting ready to shut it down for the night.. We waited and waited my hubby paced and paced as I just watch him… I finally told him to go to bed . I settled in myself with my book all set to read and then there it was the brightest flash of lightening and the the sound of rain bouncing off the air conditioner. My hubby turned to me and said and you said the clouds were breaking up…. well they were when I last checked . We could hear the thunder see the lightening and then out of the blue this sound …that sound… yes that sound Its hard to describe what it sounds like ..well it’s kind of describable I just hate saying what it sounds like… okay it’s a bang noise a very loud bang . Almost like a shot gun sound . And NO it’s not thunder , my hubby and my daughter who was downstairs in her place had heard it about a week ago when we first heard it. It was a clear starry night , a week day but the same time as last night around 9:30 it’s a one time bang .. that’s it and it’s so loud it literally makes me jump and leaves me shaking as it did for my hubby and daughter . Thunder doesn’t do that to us. My hubby the first time went outside and looked around. We waited for sirens thinking someone crashed or something happened on the nearby train tracks but nothing no sirens echoed in the night just quietness. And last night 9:30 and once again a one time again . We heard thunder off and on and yes such a different sound . The sound comes in the direction where our bedroom window showing the side woods , If you look at the pictures you can see its all woods . we wonder is it a neighbor but then we say why? and then we think fireworks but just once it doesn’t make sense as well. All I know its really creepy and so loud. its so mind boggling . once again an unknown which is so frustrating . let’s see if it happens again soon sadly I really do not know what we can do about it. Oh did I finish my book? no I didn’t I was too occupied by the storm and strange sound. I am stepping off now to read. I will read all your lovely blog posts tomorrow . Have a great night everyone.
It’s 10:00 at night and just posting for the day. Laying in bed with my electric blanket on low .. yes you read right….. my electric blanket. Woke to 61 out all the windows open and at 1 in the afternoon the winds picked up and some rain then sunshine the rest of the day but temps dropping to the 40’s by 3 in the late afternoon. Walked around shutting windows and cursing to myself why .. I was already in a mood so the cold temps hitting my body was another shock to my system …not helping my body feel any better.
Anyways this was my Monday. Waking up at 7:30 jumping into the shower. After already being woken up at 5 in the morning to a sound of a bang like something crashing down onto the floor. But not realizing it until I woke back up at 7:30 finding that it was a photo in a frame that fell off the window sill and I really do not know why there was no wind at the time unless Miss Abigail found her way in to my bedroom. After my shower my son had woke too as my daughter was getting ready for work . Hubby already out the door . My son and I had coffee and waited for the starting of the Boston Marathon. We chatted as we watched . Then towards the end of the race he headed to the gym and I put a ham in to cook for supper. Well the clouds came in and it got dark the wind started to roar I looked at Miss Abigail who was laying on the floor in front of me as I prepared the ham to cook . She kept meowing at me when I told her we were not in Kansas anymore .. being silly with her since the looks of the outside scared me a bit 🙄I think it unsettled her a bit too because she kept randomly meowing. . After my daytime show came on I grabbed another cup of coffee to warm my hands… I think tea would have been a better choice but there was still some coffee left so why not. Half way through my show breaking news cut in . The Notre Dame Cathedral was on fire . I watched in horror . How ? Why? Oh my it’s Holy Week … yes my mind works in mysterious ways. My son came home from the gym and saw I was watching it and said he had heard and sat watching it with me . Such a beautiful place .. gone . It was sad watching. So my heart breaks for France tonight. So many people watching it and their reactions were so sad. The news ended my son napped on the couch and I did a few things to keep my body from stiffening up from the change in temps. My son will start a job on Thurs at a local restaurant delivering takeouts and waiting on tables this will be Thurs through Sunday .mid afternoon till 10 at night until he finds something else . Unless he likes it and it’s worth the pay . Will see. My ham turned out good everyone was home to enjoy it. And now my son is out for a bit and my daughter relaxing down in her place. It was a strange kind of day the frame randomly falling, the sad news in France . everyone home to eat my supper yes strange and then this cold weather .. ahh what a Monday it was .. well time to get some sleep , hopefully my son isn’t too late. Good night.
So tonight my husband and I were relaxing in front of the tv after supper was done and cleaned up watching our shows . When Miss Abigail planted herself right in front of us facing the tv . My husbands says , do you see this ? She actually watching it . Her head was moving side to side as the images on the tv moved . She sat there for almost 5 mins . It was so strange but cute . I had to get a picture for my daughter so she could see her cat. Then I figured why not share it with all of you . Something different for a change and pleasant . Enjoy🙂
It’s been about 17 hours since hearing from my son. At 8 pm when he landed in Missouri he waited for his ride to the base . At 10:30 his time 11:30 ours we texted he thought he would be staying at the Army quarters there for the night being that the Base was 2hrs away. At 11 pm I received a message that he was shipping out to the base so we said somethings to him and then Goodnight thinking it would probably be the last we heard from him until he could do once a week calls.. after my hubby and I having a rough emotional day ,sleep was not easy to come but eventually we manage to fall a asleep . At 3:00 in the morning my phone lit up and the ring was so loud I had had it up . My sons face appeared on it . It was a quick serious voice I’m here and stating he was safe and when he could call he would .. well that made us happy he was safe .. there ..but it triggered my mothering strings .. did he eat , drink enough , why isn’t he sleeping oh yes I could keep going.🙄 my hubby and I eventually settled down to get some sleep I do not believe much we both have been in a fog all day and expecting him to walk through the door at any minute. So much to get use to , it’s quiet , less busy, less razzing one another , I miss his big smile . Supper time and and now evening is the hardest because this is when I’m waiting wondering when he will be home to eat or not . Not wondering .. worrying when he will be home when we go to bed. Okay you got the idea . Just so hard. Miss him. This afternoon I did do some adult coloring that helped .it stopped my thoughts from wondering. For awhile ..
It’s coming along pretty good . I think it will look good after it’s done. I’m happy I was able to get into it today. and now that supper is done and cleaned up a plate saved for my daughter when she gets him from work , chocolate cookie bars just made. I think while chatting with my hubby and watching news I’ll color a bit more . I think it may be a early night for all of us ,my daughter who stated she didn’t sleep well and hoping thinking it will be for my son as well . Will all get the sleep we need . I hope you enjoy my photo of my coloring page . I guess it’s time to finish some more.
what a day everything just feels off … is off.. I just do not know everything going wrong at home then you go to the store the only two items your son wants for food there is none but every other kind . Your gas tank in your car reads to bars and 80 miles I can drive it’s a subie so I put $10 in still says 80 and 2bars showing so my daughter and I are dumbfounded so where thinking did the guy actually have gas in that pump or is my car broke? Hmm… so we go to another gas tank I add 10 more and now it reads 260 okay now it’s working . The news isn’t any better so many bad things happening .. and no answers… just been a strange day and it’s only suppertime. I am ready to crawl under the covers hahaha. Sadly I usually would be jumping for joy being that it’s the 1st day of Spring but it doesn’t look it and it’s so cold out…I’m trying to fine a silver lining here somewhere maybe it will come tomorrow when I can sit back and reflect and laugh about it.🙂
Good Morning .. a strange one at that after a very light sleep.. you know those nights where your sleeping but you feel your not but then you actually wake up and your wide awake … that was my night . Then I wake up at 7 after whatever time I fell back to sleep to my son asking to see my phone hmm … he types on it then says ok here , I look at it and it’s an Instagram but a new one with only two photos it’s him he says I think I deleted my photos by accident last night and I lost a lot of followers with my photos I’m like oh no but to me something sounded strange about the whole thing .I didn’t tell him that because I do tend to over think things so I let it go ,a few minutes later I go to check mine and in the feed I see all or most part his photos and followers but it’s a weird name …word I don’t know what to call it jibber … I’m about to yell to him from my bed he comes in says take a pic of me and has this paper he’s holding I can’t say what it said but yes he was reporting it he was hacked .. stolen whatever you want to call it …. Why? He’s not happy. Who would be. Im ready to delete my social media except for this …. It’s getting bad , I think it’s time to get a good camera and start taking photos the old way or should say the way it should be. I’m tired of this a month ago my Facebook was hacked . I’m ready to call it quits sadly I have friends I love to connect with from afar .. on there other then that I would press that delete button so fast. The drama is getting to much to too . I hope my son has his photos saved.
I’m sitting and enjoying my coffee my son is now off to school , as I watch the weather channel because my phone did a weather warning alert..ughh another Nor”Eastern predicted our way for tomorrow into Thursday night and this time their predicting 12to 16 inched our way😥 so I’m thinking with the timing and if it gets as bad as they say no school tomorrow or Thursday. Hubby texted me to let me know he would be taking off Thursday from work to clean up or if we have power outages he can be around … thank god Crazy….actually something else that is crazy is I was catching up on the news this morning as well and they where reporting on a flight I don’t know where about didn’t catch it but they where in flight and this women had to be restrained because she was trying to get to the planes door to open it and yelling I am God over and over. Okay that’s scary poor women but the passengers what they had to deal with .. oh this world… so yes a very strange morning 😂 Miss Abigail is doing some odd things as well hiding at first this morning then I went into the kitchen to freshen up my coffee and she’s sleeping on my kitchen table ,well that didn’t happen long .. she knows better because when I went towards her to grab her off she ran. Can cats sense a storm coming? It’s been a morning… going to be a long day.
