Woke to a cloudy cold morning . Dragged myself out of bed poured a hot steamy cup of coffee. As I sat and enjoyed it . The quietness around me was actually okay. I just took it in and thought it is what it is . ..actually with a smile..as I just sipped my coffee . My daughter came up from her place moments later with Miss Abigail at her heels . I listen to my daughter talk about this and that and smiled somethings never change . She always has an opinion about something 🙂 after we both went about our business I cleaning the little bit around the house if you want to call it that more like went room to room and just opened up window shades, made the bed . And then was done. 4:00 in the afternoon now and after a very heavy rain the sun is out and shining bright . Warming the temps to the mid 50’s crazy weather. Soon my husband will be home and I know he will want to go for a run So supper can wait to be made for a bit . My daughter will eat with her boyfriend . Another easy night .. not complaining by any means just following along with it. It’s just seems all so simple these days . I know in a couple of months my son will be home and maybe it will be less quiet will see what an adult he may have become. Then the quietness will start again when he leaves for his training . I’m just proud of my kids for being who they are and being kind ,caring people. It’s a funny thing you blink and before you know it they have grownup . So don’t blink😉
The sun is shining , my daughter is headed to a concert with a friend for the night. My son at his last weekend army drill until he leaves in Oct. ..food shopping is done , chili made and simmering in crockpot for supper ,washing machine humming in the back ground as alway (hahaha) house is clean so now eating some lunch and then I think I will sit outside on my swing and do some adult coloring . While hubby is working on his barn. Then a evening of chili and watch some football on the tv . .. maybe my son will join us after the drill and drive he will want to settle with us to be ready to do it all over again tomorrow. A nice simple weekend . Hope everyone enjoys their day🙂
It’s the end of August but feels like July . Temps are reading over the 90″s with the heaviness of the humidity weighing down on all of us . Us New Englanders are not use to this. The air conditioners are running but they can only do so much . It’s been a day of Soap Opera watching and crockpot cooking to stay cool. Miss Abigail looks up from her nap when she hears me mumbling in disgust at the tv because yes … I get into my Soaps🙄 and she is looking at me like crazy lady who is she talking to no ones here. (Hahaha) I believe another day of this , well that is what they say but only Mother Nature knows that answer.. so we wait. Soaps are over now ,so what to do. I’m sure I’ll find something . Hubby has arrived home so time to check our supper that is cooking.
Woke to the sun shining bright into my room did my usual scroll through Twitter , Instagram , email before dragging myself to a shower . When I walked out to the kitchen to get my morning cup of coffee I am greeted by Miss Abigail who was staring at me from the chair it seems she has slept in all night . I think my daughter came in late and Miss Abigail settled herself upstairs. Now I have a coffee buddy. My son has just headed out the door for to the gym. Then a run and swim then back home for food and rest then who knows . I see he has marked targets in our woods using plastic milk cartons paper targets to practice his shooting for his Army drills .. he has an air soft gun that shoots pellets . To practice with. Every day it get a bit closer to him leaving and him all business . He is so focused and ready. It throws me how fast he grew into a man . I guess it’s true the youngest grow up so much faster . My daughter seemed stay so young much longer then him. ..
Last night I decided to read out in the living room so the light wouldn’t bother my hubby since he is back to work this week and having a hard time falling asleep early since he stayed up late with me watching movies sitting outside late and just chatting. I read more of Sharp Objects. yes it is a bit different then the mini series. Still very bizarre is the word I am going to use to describe it, ( hahaha) I got into but not so I’m thinking it’s going to be one of those books where I do read it but put it down take a break then pick it up again . There is not many books that I do not finish once I start . It makes you want to keep picking it back up .well time to get this day started.. have a good day everyone .
Ahhh finally after two weeks of torrential rain and unbearable heat the skies have cleared to a beautiful blue. The sun is out and the wind blowing feels good. Back from my errand in Town and now sitting on my swing on our deck about to read .
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.
Since Sunday it’s been a crazy ride with Mother Nature… to begin it’s endlessly humid , then one moment the sun is shining and the humidity doesn’t matter it’s bright and beautiful .. then you turn your back for one second and it’s down pouring , so you go in , I then think okay now to find something inside to do well once again the sun is out . Ok Mother Nature why? It’s been no fun , this is predicted for the whole week, nothing like cabin fever in the summer. 🙄 on Monday it was spent with back and forth being in the car , my daughter needed rides to the garage then back to it after her brakes were fixed then I had errands to run . Let’s say my curls went to frizz every time I ran out in the rain. I will be happy when Mother Nature decides to make up her mind.
My last post I wrote was about getting ready for my Sons Birthday get together with his friends . Let’s say 12 newly graduated kids showed up his “friend group” as he calls it. They ate pizza , burgers , chips made endless s’mores and roasted marshmallows over the bonfire ,they played corn hole , at one point as my other half and I sat inside watching a movie we could hear the endless chatter , laughing , then it got quiet so my other half and I looked at one another and decided to look out …. there they sat all around the fire, talking quietly serious faces on some and some looking around at one another. I think this bunch was realizing how life had turned a new corner .. new chapter whatever you want to call it but it was now going to be different them all on new a paths not all following one another into another school year as they where so used to for so many years. Around 11 the gathering came to an end one by one kids left and 4 stayed over, after cleaning up what was left of food outside they came in and settled in his room paying Xbox , my other and I picked up a bit more then we shut everything off and went to bed …as I laid there in the the darken room I absorbed the laughter and the chatting sound echoing through the walls a bites well as the sound of friendly wrestling . I smiled but felt in my heart how I will miss these moments.
