Calmness…

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.

Ahh signs of Spring.

Yes their predicting snow our way tonight … the good thing is they have lowered the amounts we are getting oh I hope their right . 3 to 5 inches …okay doable .. then the time it was suppose to start snowing keeps being pushed forward it was first 5 pm then 7 now it’s 8 pm. Okay this is not the sign of Spring … it’s these guys the top photo there is 4 turkeys their a bit camouflagedand their not little anymore. I believe their bigger then Miss Abigail and she knows it. She was watching them walk all around the back yard through the window . Her eyes so big. I was in my bedroom putting a few things away when out of the corner of my eye I saw out the window these guys walking by. Such a nice sign . Now they will be here in the mornings then the evenings until Fall. Love that their back, love seeing them. They have been doing this routine for the last two yrs . Last year there was babies which I believe these are the babies hopefully we will see some babies. . Will see. Supper is done and cleaned upI made Homemade Mac and cheese didn’t think I would like the orange sharp cheddar ,that’s all our local store had that wasn’t outrageously priced. I figured I would try it. Not bad, hubby liked it . Now I’m going to settle in read my book and get to bed hopefully earlier tonight . Miss Abigail kept us up jumping on my hubby scratching the bed then our window shade until my hubby brought her downstairs to her and my daughters place .My daughter out with her boyfriend texting me back at 1 when I texted her at ll:00 that she was downstairs watch when she came in. 😭 after that I had a hard time settling in with a good sleep with strange dreams .. so tonights goal is to read now then bed at 9 .🙂

Always something…

It was a rainy muddy dreary Sunday.. the mud mixed in with the snow has now made it ugly looking out and makes for wanting Spring to come quicker. I know in due time… today went by slowly , I made a chicken soup for my daughter and I because we needed to eat , while my hubby just sipped broth and ate jello . He can’t wait to get the colonoscopy done tomorrow. So I ll be going to bed soon since I need to bring him , my daughter is going to come to keep me company while we wait for him. ,after supper he settled on the couch watching racing and dozing .. we thought we would watch a movie but he didn’t think he would be able to focus on it so I let him sleep and I did some coloring and giving my mind a break from my wandering thoughts.

I’m now laying in bed and was I say WAS ready to settle in for some sleep but my son texted me with I’m so ready to come home , crazy things happening here. I’m like oh no I don’t know if I like the sound of that . There’s been a lot of fights there lately and he now just told me the barracks next to his is on fire . Ughh !!! He said there is so many fire trucks and you can see the flames coming through the doors .. he said luckily their barrack is far enough away . and he is safe He didn’t say much else and I didn’t ask just Incase he had already told me too much .. all he said Was goodnight to me and said his barracks are being told to settle so I guess they want them off their phones . Oh being a mother is hard no matter how old they are and yes he’s in the Army but that doesn’t mean I can’t worry a bit or won’t.,… how I wish he could just get on a plane and come home now! lol I actually told him that he had texted back , wish it was that easy🙄 well he said he was safe and getting some sleep or going to try and I guess I will do the same . Morning will be here soon enough.

Sunday’s…

Usually Sundays are the calm quiet part of the weekend . This Sunday it isn’t , food shopping was so needed to be done ..oh don’t get me wrong ordering a pizza was so good last night especially a Taco pizza but it’s time to make some meals again. As we drove out of the parking lot I texted my daughter asking her if she wanted a coffee since hubby and I were grabbing one. The sad thing is I sent it to my son instead …😂he answered of course I do can you drive it to me ?🙄 I was like ohh I’m sorry wrong Child lol.. he said ,, it’s okay I got out yesterday had a Starbucks all good. I did send him a coffee. A GIF he like that. Thankfully food shopping went smoothly and quickly since my hubby isn’t feeling that great. But he wanted to go. Now the food is put away . Watching the Daytona 500 on tv . Use to be into it big time but not as much now. But it’s on so will give it a try. It’s a great reminder tho that Spring is on its way. The sun is out nice and bright even tho snow is coming in tonight about 3inches at least but the weather advisory’s going across the bottom of the tv screen makes me wonder if it’s going to be more especially when their stating there could be power outages …hubby is off , it’s a holiday on Monday. And my daughter so it can do whatever it wants.. So another lazy late night again . Tonight supper will be chicken pot pies with gravy on it and some cranberry sauce on the side . Nice and simple and comforting. Well time to do a few things around here and then I think I will try reading or coloring . Have a great Sunday everyone.

Sunday night already…

It’s Sunday night already .. even though it’s been a long week I can’t believe it’s Sunday and I still feel down.. doesn’t help that not being active and feeling uncomfortable I’m not sleeping well . I think I may have kicked this faster if I had some decent sleep . Laying in bed at midnight night wide awake and not feeling bad at all then finally falling asleep after 1 or more waking up the next morning exhausted . And then a long day down again .. vicious cycle. I’ve watched so much tv but the best was today . I cozied up with a blanket and a cup of tea in my chair and enjoyed an oldie but goodie the movie An Officer and a gentleman. Oh the tears I cried at the end I’m such sappy thing 😂 I love a good romantic movie as much as a romance book. My daughter actually enjoyed it as well hubby watched off and on but took moments of laying in bed, fearing that he is coming down with our sickness ..feeling feverish so that’s not good. I texted with my son off and on more today . He is ready to be done with the Ait part of Basic Training about 3 weeks left aand he will be flying home. So we chatted about jobs when he gets home along with his National Guard Reserves job . And anxiously waiting to hear back from the colleges he as applied too , will see. Now watching the Red Carpet for The Grammys. See how long I last . I like some of the music. And performers but after awhile it gets a bit much. It’s getting started so I guess I will chat a little with my son before he has to be off his phone for the night and enjoy the Grammys with my daughter.and maybe the hubby’s unless he goes to bed early so he can work tomorrow . He is the lucky one he can sleep anytime and anywhere . Wish I had that problem🙂

Super Bowl !

Today is Super Bowl Sunday!watching the pre shows hubby is enjoying a beer and nacho’s while the Chili is simmering in the crockpot the house smells delicious the sun is shining nice and bright into the house love when I can open the front door it just makes the realization that Spring is coming🙂, made a cake now just need to make my buttercream frosting , always taste good after eating chili , I have wings but thinking we are good. Unless my daughter wants them when she arrives home from work. I’ve spent some time out on my deck snapping pics for my son and sending them to him he loves seeing pics of home. After I just leaned on the rail closed my eyes and let the sun shine on my face ahh the feeling was amazing. I really can’t say how long I stood there . It was nice to be outside. The breeze picked up sending a bit of a chill my way I decided it was time to head inside . My hubby and I are now laughing at some of the commercials already . And the interviews of the football players. Rams and the Patriots two great teams. This will be fun! The other part I look forward to is the Puppy Bowl. Defiantly need to watch them. It’s nice the pups that play are all up for adoption so it’s gets them some coverage . To find a forever home. I think it’s time to make my frosting soon the chili will be ready . Good my stomach is growling .🙂

Snow and more snow…

A foot of this lovely white stuff. 🙄 it’s cold , temps are reading 16 I’m warm tho cozy in my chair with a blanket and enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee . .. now that I’m done with taking pictures to share.
