This is our summer evenings . The sun setting in front of us into the mountain but its rays of light peaking through the tree that gives us some shade and is home to the chickadee’s and robins. Tonight we shared the beautiful evening with our turkeys and fox eating and frolicking in the grass just a bit away from us. They new we were there sitting on our deck . I believe they find this as their home as well. As we talked they just did their thing then as the night slowly rolled in and the light turning into darkness they disappeared into the edge of our woods to settle for the night as we headed into the house to settle in as well , now the house is as quiet as our woods. Everyone tucked in for the night in there place in the house , I will do the same ..enjoy my book for a bit until my eyes get heavy with sleep.
Well this three day weekend went by fast…. it was nice not having to be anywhere and having some down time . I know your probably thinking she always has down time🙄 but the thought of not thinking of what I need or didn’t do was nice .. I just cozied in under a blanket with my book , journal, tea or hot chocolate and yes my coffee. With some good conversation with my husband and daughter and her boyfriend. And texting quite a bit with my son in Missouri 🙂 Sunday was a day of snow and then a beautiful sunset in the evening and ending the day with an amazing Lunar Eclipse I actually manage to stay up for. My daughter and her boyfriend did too. It took two hours . But it was defiantly worth it. Thankfully we watched it from my bedroom window, being that is was only 2 out there was no way I was going outside …bad enough the house was cold so getting into my bed with the electric blanket on felt good.
Today the temps stayed at 2 so I did not leave the house. My husband and daughter did they wanted to try a coffee from our local coffee shop down the road. There was an almond marshmallow flavored one so they brought me one back. So good . While they were out grabbing coffees I made Shepard’s pie for supper. And wrote in my journal. Chatted with my son not as much today . As he was enjoying his last day of his four day weekend relaxing with his army buddies and getting ready to start back up with their MOS classes for the week. And even earlier wake up he’s not looking forward too again. Back to routine tomorrow for my husband and daughter. While I run some errands . So I guess I will finish up one more thing and go settle under my blankets and read a bit before getting some sleep but not before I say goodnight to my son.
The day seems to fly by now with the sun settlings earlier captured a nice photo of the sun setting and then the darkness followed shortly after. . The day went as plan errand to the post office . Then cleaned around the house for a bit until my daughter asked if I wanted to go with her to get her studs on her car at the garage and grab a coffee at our many coffee stops in town. We both ordered a pumpkin spice flavor coffee. After she went with a friend for a bit and I started supper for my hubby and I . Very easy (hahaha) fish stick , mashed potatoes with gravy and a veggie defiantly easy .tomorrow I think meatloaf. After supper was done and cleaned up my daughter arrived home and as my hubby was catching the nightly news her and I sat at the kitchen table chatting and laughing , always the best chats around the kitchen table if my son was home he would be sitting there as well. Something about a certain place in your house that is a comforting setting for good chats and memorable moments. I believe this started with my mom we had the best chats around my family home growing up . I will always remember those times growing up seeing my parents with their coffee in hand chatting away and laughing and then when I grew up I joined in . Nice memory. ❤️ after the time flew by and my daughter was ready to go settle down in her place . My hubby and I settled too and enjoyed our favorite show well one of them .. Seal Team . Show is over house is quiet except for the sound of my hubby sleeping away as I think I will now . First need to say my nightly prayers and send a prayer my sons way that I’m thinking of him .and then I can get some sleep a bit earlier tonight.
Beautiful ending to an exciting Friday Track Meet . Brutally cold but with a blanket wrapped around me worked well🙂 our boys Track and Field team won their 2nd meet of the season again . My son broke his record . Came in faster so his hard work is paying off. My hubby niece , Mother in/law and my daughter cheered him on. Happily he is out with his friends now and my daughter as well so hubby and I are home and warming up and watching a movie Suicide Squad …hmm a bit strange and interesting at the same time ..but hubby likes Will Smith and it was on tv’s movie channel tonight so where watching it. I guess I will finish watching it with him . Goodnight everyone🙂
Historic cold weekend but the sunset is so beautiful tonight!
This evening I happen to just look outside at the right moment to capture this and then it was gone… it’s just so amazing it doesn’t look real oh but it is .
