It’s a sunny too warm morning for September .. Air is running constantly . Ready for the cool weather we had a week ago. I happened to get a photo of the last sunflower blooming. The last remains of the summer. Its beautiful and cheerful looking. Enjoy everyone.
Woke to cloudy skies and then as the morning progressed the skies opened and the outside became dark and windy the rain is coming down so fast I cannot say if the flowers ..plants are enjoying it or not , the intensity of it is unreal.. Their saying this could be on and off all day. Good day to read.
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 .
