The most comforting summer night sound as your drifting off to sleep …
It was a quiet Saturday the temps here were warm and a bit humid after doing what needed to be done around the house and waiting to hear how my son was doing at his meet .I went and sat out on my deck swing and listen to whatever was making the thrashing noise in our woods. Sat there for a bit and never figured it out . My son made it into the finals for the relay race so now onto the State Championships. So very proud of him ..just the timing is not good it’s the following Sat night under the lights and his graduation is the next day so it will make for a very tiring ceremony…why do they do this… any ways so evening was here by the time the guys came home from the meet ,my Mother in -law called to tell us her sister was doing a bonfire ,now that may sound strange but her sister is a lot younger then you think hahaha my mother in- law is in her mid 60″s and her sister is in her mid 50″s so she loves to do fires so we went over with the the rest of the family had some drinks sat around the fire the sisters son plays guitar so he brought it out and getting foolish we sat their singing random songs he played. like Leonard Skyner .. John cougar , all the good oldies that’s fun to sing around a fire . As I write this I have to laugh .. if people could of saw us they would of defiantly thought we had lost our minds🙄 so as I had titled this post yes it begins , the endless bonfires I see coming this summer. If the rain hadn’t come crashing down on us I think we would have still been sitting out there.. sad it’s midnight and I’m wide awake not good .. I guess I’ll just listen to the rain as I try to settle in for the night …morning will be here soon enough..
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 🙄
video /Photo should. Turn around when you click on arrow I loaded sideways ? this was earlier this evening when the sun was setting , the sky looks like it was on fire . The temps are and still are in the 70″s as 10:00 approaches . The peepers are still just as loud as in my video . I am wide awake . I should of sat outside but everyone else has settled in and sometimes sitting out by myself is creepy …. yes I’m a scaredy cat as they say 🙂 I’m always hearing something in the woods. So I’m settled in bed with the fan blasting for air it’s hot in the house. The weekend will be back to the normal temps for this time of yr the 60″s and my hubby won’t have work so he can sit outside with me
. Love looking at the stars and the planets. It’s so peaceful looking. Up and hoping you spot a falling star. My son will not sit out and just look at the sky he has been this way since he was a child .I think the sky gives him a feeling of the unknown . It makes him uncomfortable . He will only sit out for bonfires and fireworks where he is focusing on them. My daughter can sit out for hours just looking at the sky or listening to see what she can hear .my hubby and her love to see eyes staring back at us from the woods …hahaha yeah it’s true usually a fox or a coyote ( the boys) their eyes reflecting off the solar lights that surround our fountain in the flowerbed. I’m so wide awake hmm this could make for along night. I never sleep well in the summer and nights are usually my favorite time of the summer . Strange perhaps but it’s true I feel more awake it’s a bit cooler and it’s just peaceful. Yes makes for rough morning but you can win them all 🙂 tomorrow their predicting thunderstorms this will be nice I love thunderstorms . My hubby does not . If there at night my son will just sleep through them . My daughter and I will sit in the living room a bit by the widow a watch the lightening . Yes a sky thing again . Well the time is ticking away and I should say my nighttime prayers while I’m awake sometimes they help me fall asleep saying them because it relaxes me . So goodnight everyone.❤️
Crazy past weekend lets see this beautiful full moon has ket me up as had me in reved motion along with my teenage son … this photo was taken at 1in the morning on Saturday has my husband and I were driving to pick our son up after a ..umm …. party he went to with his friend got busted …just to note we did not allow him to go because we did not know .he did you the trick you and your friend say your each going to sleep at each others house but they really are out doing this , Thankfully the police who busted it where very nice because the kids where under age and past curfew of driving they had to get a ride home by thier parents and leave the car or one of us drove it . So we walked up as they where escorted to us by the cop and she asked if we where my sons parents and said if we where taking his friend home too we said yes and she said okay they’re not in trouble we just want them all to get home safe and I do not know if they had a drink they wouldn’t say so we said thank you and my husband drove my sons car home and I drove the boys thankfully they hadn’t drank but still got a lecture from me ,they told me they just wanted to go to be with this girl who invited them and they new they shouldn’t have hmmm a bit to late oh , I will be so happy when school starts in less then 3 weeks, he will and I mean WILL be home and he has been on a strict watch sadly but it’s just not safe to do . Yes we have done this but when it’s your child it’s like a slap in the face of reality your mother saying see how it feels .. yes karma funny thing is I had a feeling and I was wide awake so yes it was a crazy past weekend and a week of trying to get into a normal routine and a little more rules . Let’s say a challenging summer this has been and such learning experience for all of us .
Hope everyone had a good weekend if it was the weekend in your part of the globe. Mine was as always pleasant and well spent with my family laughing and chatting untill we all went our separate ways doing our thing . My hubby and I are noticing the days are getting shorter already each day it gets darker a little earlier and then there’s the back to school commercials selling all the essentials needed to have a great year. I’m like really,,, it’s July yes the last week of it but still . I think this is the shortest feeling summer ever . I know it’s been the most layed back summer my hubby and I have had . Okay it’s been a more wondering where my kid is summer hahaha now that it’s his first driving one. . That’s been a bit of a challenge and still is but trying to be better I did state in my last posts to whoever read it I would try to be better with being more lenient with the texting (checking up) I would trust him more. I believe I am getting. better but something’s a mother has a hard time with certain things. Any how happy the humidity breaked for the moment it’s nice to have the fresh air come in . My hubby and I are relaxing in our bedroom since he has to get up earlier for work this week I’m going to read my book in a bit and yes wonder where my kid is . School will be nice because he will be roaming less with his busy schedule and I’m looking forward to his Last Highschool Cross Country Meets well….that is sad to say actually first time saying it wow nothing like feeling like you got the wind knocked out of you wow his last yr of Hogh School ..time sure does fly if you blink and then you missed it.😥 well this mama will have a lot of picture taking …I know im some ways he is ready to move on but at the same time it’s going to be a hard one a lot of years put into his sports and his friends yeah isn’t it for a lot of us when we graduated , but for now will concentrate on the school year and go from there.
Summer vacation has just begun and it’s been a simple and I’m not going to say quiet because it has had its moments of a lot of noise and I am loving it ! My son had his 1st fire pit camp out read back post you will understand ..over the weekend and then all his buddies hanging in the kitchen making food and laughing tonight .. enjoying the days in between work time. And girlfriend time. When it’s quiet and I’m not on my blog and house is all set I have been reading again which is so relaxing, Summer has just begun and I’m half way through my second book 📚 I’m curious how many I will have read by the end of summer.
