Puzzling…

Friday morning woke from a dream that felt so real. I know we all have had that kind of dream. This though, was a dream like I have never had. It was so peaceful. Comforting. And felt so much love. I would say the rest, but you wouldn’t believe it. I’ll leave it at that . It was something so spiritual if that even describes it. And the rest of the day seems to follow suit in signs oh so many signs. A cardinal was appearing right in front of where my sister and I where parked on a bush while we’re talking about our parents that had passed many yrs ago. And then as fast as it appeared, it disappeared just wanting to show it’s presence. The day as I stated still followed with more signs. We went into a store that my sister had been In more than I could count, and I had never been in. It was like an indoor tag sale and antiques shop. This place was wall to wall stocked with everything you could ever imagine. I chuckled and stated that I would love to come upon an old fashioned stainless steel made meat grinder that back in the day you would clamp onto your counter and put whatever meat in it to hand spin the meat for sandwiches. I believe it’s could possibly be an antique. As a kid, I loved watching my mother use it. My sister agreed it would be something to find. As we browsed, I happened to look down at the same time as she did at this tin pail holding random items, and there was where we spotted the meat grinder And the look on our face. well, you could imagine was priceless. she reached down and grabbed it and said of all the things there was no price tag on it everything in the place has a tag on it and some things were so expensive I could only imagine. I asked the lady working, and she was like oh well that’s different and throughout a random amount. 5.00 dollars, all I could say was okay. Thinking though this was worth so much more. We left after that quickly.. She invited me to stay over her house and bake with her and her daughter and yes, drink coffee. She loved her coffee as well it’s a family thing. We stopped by my house so I could grab my things and off we went to her house that is our family homstead. So always going to her house is like going home again. She has redone it, and it looks beautiful, but it’s still home always will be. The three of us had a bunch of laughs and enjoyed homemade m&m cookies and coffee. Yes, I cheated on my diet, but so worth it. We stayed up way past midnight chatting . The day was absolutely amazing. There was many more signs and moments of discoveries . That proofed that our parents were still around us watching over us. Another time for that . When I post my meat grinder. I will say a lot I have discovered about my family and this thing called life and death . and even though someone has passed and we cannot see them . We can at least feel them if you open your heart and mind to it . Your heart is the easy part their your love ones . Wrapping your mind around it is another thing. For me both is easy for I feel very sensitive to this. It’s unbelievable but beautiful.

Another day of randomness …

It’s only Tues but feels like Fri.. this week is going slow… not a bad thing it’s nice to feel the tensions of the past weekend fade away. Birthday weekend is not my favorite.. The day started off as usual wake up grab a quick shower and head for the coffee pot . Enjoy my coffee with the Wendy Show and The View. Then it was time for the TV being replaced with my new speakers nice and loud surrounding my house up with my music as I did somethings around the house. Ahh the music helps so much . The day was out of this world hot and humid. Really cannot wait for Fall . Tonight the sun had already set at 7 and by 7:30 it was getting dark. Amazing how early it is with getting dark out. Been such a crazy summer weather wise not surprised … I’m ready for the air conditioners to be turned off and have the windows open again. Soon I hope. This is a short post tonight going to go settle . Have a great night everyoneπŸ™‚

Blooming …my world

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 .

Taking in the sun..

It’s a sunny warm day . Shall I add quiet into it? it’s always how it is..enjoying sometime on the deck taking in the beautiful sun. After the oddest thing this morning .. I’m still laughing about it. Telling my daughter about it as she enjoyed her morning coffee with me before she went to work .I had her Keeling over in laughter. Let me start with if you read my past posts I have stated, posted photos of the wild turkeys in my yard. Well this Spring there has.. is an abundance of them roaming throughout our woods, the front and back yard. Every morning sometimes in the after noon but for the most part morning and evening. Anyways so I came out of the shower wrapping myself in a towel and straight ahead of me there is a small window that faces the back of the house into the woods so no one is going to see me plus the screen is tinted so it makes it look just dark looking in ..well I look out and there looking in at a little distance has their neck stretched out and so I’m basically eye to eye with a turkey πŸ™„ now he can’t see me (hahaha) not worried but it’s the fact it’s staring straight at me . I think it heard the shower running. I just shook my head and called out to it …what are you looking at ? And the thing just walked away . My daughter as I’m telling her said well I wondered who you were talking to I did hear you say something and I knew it wasn’t me you were talking to because you never knew I was upstairs. What do you know as I’m sitting out here it’s 5:30 in the evening. Yes started writing this earlier when the sun was shining and it was warm but now the clouds are moving in blocking the sun a bit making it a little cool out . I’ve had to keep stopping to write this between phone calls , my son coming home asking me questions my daughter texting me, and then my hubby coming home talking as well . Not quiet any more. πŸ™‚ And as I’m sitting here the turkeys have made their way back into our yard taking their evening stroll through . And not caring that I’m sitting out here. Crazy birds.

And there was sun!

  • Ahhh woke to the sun shining into my bedroom . Late night had a hard time falling asleep .was too warm then cold ..oh I hate when the weather seesaws with its temps .. cool all day then the night seem to warm up and I guess it did as waking to 58 out and yes the sun ! I decided to get up and enjoy it then trying to catch up on sleep. My hubby and son at work . My daughter still down in her place but miss Abigail roaming the house , going from one room to another. Looking out the windows . Trying to find the most exposure to the suns rays. I went to the coffee pot and as I’m pouring my coffee Miss Abigail can hear me at it and now waiting for her morning treat. So coffee for me and treat for her. Went to sit out on the deck with my coffee but I need to wipe down the chairs.. still soaking wet . So I leaned on the railing for a bit to just feel the sun on my face . I pray Mother Nature has decided it’s time to let us enjoy Spring.
  • Time to finish my coffee and breakfast… do somethings inside then get outside and enjoy the sun . πŸ™‚
  • Ahh end of the week!

    It’s Friday and yes another rainy day but it’s warm in the 60’s could possibly get to the mid 70’s I wish we would get a thunderstorm love them , My hubby NOT !hahaha you know how a dog runs or goes from one window to another looking out in anticipation of something or someone outside well that is pretty much my hubby. While I tend to just sit and watch πŸ˜‚ possibly on Sat their predicting we could get one. I’m sitting here enjoying my coffee and the quietness. My daughter still sleeping as Miss Abigail is too . My son off to his second day of work at the restaurant/ pub. He’s enjoying it . A Long day to day, 11:30 to 9 .

    Last night I watched my hubby and I’ s favorite show . Seal Team . Then we settled in bed he went to sleep I read . Let’s just say I should of just kept reading until I finished it ..I was up thinking about it. I’m about 3 chapters to finishing it. Last night as I was reading we had the window open a bit since the house felt stuffy there was a slight breeze so it kept blowing in the fresh outside air . It was strange I t blew in for one moment a cigarette smoke scent. I really can’t say why or who because my kids were not home it was around 10 at night and they don’t smoke . And my neighbors are not that close to us for the breeze to carry it . So that was eerie … I thought oh maybe my dad was thinking of me .. no I’m not loosing it . Ever since my dad passed I have smelled smoke off and on most times it’s been when I’m having a hard day so I don’t know .. it’s strange when you see signs at times of a love one . I would rather think that is what it was then someone lurking around in our woods. A bit after that my son arrived home and we chatted for a bit , him telling me about his first night of work. Then went to settle as I did well tried . πŸ™„ now its time to get this day done started some laundry in between writing this … yes multitasking . I see sun hmm it’s possible we could see a thunderstorm! They say sun coming out a bit with rain coming in is a perfect recipe for a storm. Well time to get this day done .

    Today it became Spring!

    Woke to 60 and a bit humid after it’s been in the 40’s . A shock to the system. Sat out on the deck absorbing the beautiful weather . Had my book and my bottle of water ….but couldn’t focus on my book . The peepers were so loud I put my book down and closed my eyes and just relaxed and took in the warmth and the sounds around me. It was beautiful. Its a little before 8 at night and the sounds are amazing . The peepers are even louder and I believe I can hear the frog in our little homemade pond. That needs to be cleaned up from the winter. Miss Abigail is enjoying the windows open running from room to room looking listening to the outside. Ahh to only see what she can see out there. I will let you listen . This is taken from my bedroom window tonight. Enjoy.
