As long as last week was ,as short as this weekend is. It’s just hitting 7:30 and the sun has already disappeared below the trees and settled into the mountain well thats how it looks . Peepers no more . Do they stop making noise at a certain time of the season? And no wildlife as well . At least the humidity is slowly dissipating. It’s a bit more bearable . A new week will be beginning and plans are being made to fill it up . Monday will be spent eyewear shopping with my daughter who needs to get new glasses and wants my opinion. Maybe I can find a book or two while we are out and about. Then Wednesday my daughter and I will catch an afternoon movie. We want to see the new The lion King , my daughter loved it as a little girl . It looks really good . So looking forward to that. All fun things to do this week. Then the birthday weekend will arrive and I can’t wait for that to pass by … not for my son I love celebrating my kids birthdays it’s mine Id like to forget. So with that said my son is accumulating a good room full of items for his college dorm. Unbelievable he will be starting college in a month . National Guard drill will be starting up for him the first of August so he has that to do as well. Things will get busy soon for him and I less busy….. less busy worrying about him (hahaha) he will be tucked away in school. I’m really hoping he likes it. Time will tell. In the mean time I will enjoy both my kids while their home together . A rarity these days. It’s 8 now and it’s getting dark already . My son is out on his bike for a quick ride before it gets completely dark. Waiting to hear the roar of it’s engine soon pulling into the driveway. Oh how he loves that bike. Hubby will be going to bed in a half n hour ,4 in the morning comes quick . To early for me to settle so I’ll take advantage of the quietness and read some more of my book. Hoping I can get into it more. Not ready to give up on it yet. Well until then I guess I will get a couple of things done . Have a good night everyone!
Everything is starting to come together outside . The grass is greening up the trees and flowers starting to bloom . Where our blueberry bushes are my hubby put fresh shavings down . And by evening I looked out and there in the shavings was a fox rolling all around in it . I couldn’t help but laugh .. believe me the berries end up with the turkeys eating them not us so the fox can enjoy, my hubby just stared shaking his head .oh what a site it was . He was a happy little thing rolling back and forth in it. The turkeys have come and gone until this evening. As I take it all in the sound of the birds and the fountain ..the bubbling of water it, reminds me of a river when it’s flowing and rippling over the stones such a soothing sound, is all I hear Time for one more cup of coffee .
It was a laid back Sunday . Rain as usual . The ground cannot get any soggier and our driveway is so muddy eventually we’re going to sink driving on it. The rain didn’t help as well with us getting on each other’s last nerve.. well my hubby and I were fine it was my kids .🙄 I could not say anything right. So I decided not to say nothing… of course I am too nice . My hubby and I were feeling caged in so we decided to go get a coffee needed to just get out for a bit . To breakup the day . We knew it wasn’t going to be a back road ride kind of day being such a dreary day so yes I’m too nice .. as we left I asked my kids if they wanted a coffee as well and yes they did .. why not free and brought back to them . Off my hubby and I went . Now it’s the evening, supper is done and kitchen is cleaned up and soon I will get to finishing my book The Road.. at the moment my hubby has one of the Rocky movies on , the first one is playing on one of the movie channels … sadly I seen them so many times I know them by heart . So I’m thinking I may just grab my book and read . Have a good night raining on and off supposably looking better tomorrow.
It’s been a Sunday of many things. This house has been alive with loud music from my hubby playing his music while he puts the last coat of paint on in the kitchen and hallway. Only way he can paint. Then it was quiet for a moment while he took a break . Then it was replaced with the laughter of my son relaxing in his room watching a movie .. how could I hear him laughing ? Well for some reason he left his door open. I guess he wasn’t worried about privacy. I sat after putting somethings back in place on the kitchen counters and read some more of the book The Road. Hmm it’s good but so sad at this moment to where I am in it it’s not a very uplifting story. Have some mix feelings . I will keep reading it though because it has me curious to see how it ends. Then after the music came back on and it was a program my hubby had found bands going into the Hall Of Fame from Def Leppard to Stevie Nicks, the Zombies, The Cure, I feel so old now … 😂 oh how time flys …. now supper is done ,it’s 8:30 and settling in to read . My hubby will be getting some sleep soon and my son as well as they have to be up early for work . As fast as the week ended Monday already will be here. At least it will be warmer . Was a nice weekend can’t complain. . I guess it’s time to read some of my book. Enjoy your night or if your day is just getting started.
As you see I’m laying in the dark comfy though in my bed ,the house is quiet as the day was . Everything shut down and settled in bed all of us.. It was a calm quiet day as well even though all of us where home . It started with enjoying a cup of coffee with my hubby then a second cup with my daughter , as my son ran around in the kitchen making something for breakfast the sound of the blender and the decent of eggs frying coming from the kitchen . ..He’s back and with his special diet regimen . My hubby did step out for a bit and did the food shopping for me while I was decluttering the kitchen a bit more since it will be a new color and decor. While my daughter did some laundry and cleaned her place up. Then everything was quiet hubby was home groceries were put away . Daughter down in her place . My son sleeping ..out like a light . Exhausted. And not feeling well . As for me getting some dinner going a rotisserie chicken my hubby brought home from the market all set to eat ..so I made mashed potatoes with ranch seasoning in them . Some steamed corn . Nice and simple but hearty . My son ate with us . It was strange but so nice having us all together eating dinner together. Very rare. So I absorbed the moment. Because I know they won’t always be this way . Then my son went back to bed and hubby settled in our room to watch tv as my daughter and I enjoyed a show in the living room .so yes a very calm day but content and relaxed. So now on ward to Monday and a new week. Back to business tomorrow … more bills to be paid ,post office run, my kids hoping to get a Dr.’s appointment . And hubby back to work . Maybe I can sneak in a coffee run. Well it’s getting late and even though it’s really is only going on 10 but with the time change it going on 11 I guess it’s time to get some sleep . It was a late night last night so do not want another one. Goodnight everyone.
