- It’s Friday night and a late one at that.. well for writing it is . It’s 11:00 and yes a bit late but I’m up until 2 anyway . Just when my mind decides to settle. Hubby is snoring away as I write this in the dark (haha) air conditioner is on so I decided to settle in the bedroom . Another warm night, hopefully we will get a break soon. My daughter is at a concert a couple hours away I’m sure she will not be waking in the door for awhile. My son is sleeping well hopefully he was having a hard time with that knowing he needs to be up at 4 for National guard weekend so he will be gone for the weekend. As I lay hear in the darkness wishing the windows were open so I could hear the sound of the train a distance away it’s whistle echoing through the night. It’s such an eerie but comforting sound.
This summer has been so different one it’s almost over already into August . My daughter turning 24 this month my son heading off to college and telling me I’m going to miss him … hmm ..I know I will but I’ll be okay he will not be that far away and only a phone call or text away I think it’s more like he will miss me and home. The freedom of being home. Since turning 50 I feel so different .. I feel different. About life.. my kids are adults now and I feel a since of new freedom to get back to taking care of me . To be me . Yes I was always was me but motherhood changes you ,you think a lot more about your kids then yourself …. well I did , and now my time is my time, and honestly I was dreading it . But now I’m embracing it I’m doing what I enjoy . I’m spending a bit more time on me . And realizing it’s not a bad thing .. oh I think we are our own worse enemy ..
So I started this late Friday night and fell asleep so I am posting this now🙄
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!
Starting to feel like summer. Night time is my favorite I know it sounds a bit odd but I’m such a night person, so of course summer nights are the best. Here is the second night photos of this summer. The deck is a work in progress the white on the railings and the deck floor is all treated with paint remover . It was so hot my hubby had to stop so little by little getting rid of the old paint to had the new. Other then that I think the yard looks peaceful with the solar lights illuminating the yard . The sky is a very dark blue, clouds slowly moving in. I was hoping to catch some eyes glowing in the pics through the woods .. but nothing , it’s all calm in the woods tonight . The boys (coyotes) are probably settled in or hunting elsewhere .Sometime tonight I should hear the trains whistle echo through the darkness . Or the dog barking at the nearby house . All such a comforting sound as I lay in the darkness of our bedroom saying my nightly prayers as I’m slowly drifting off to sleep . With that said I guess it’s time to do that . Back to the work week for my hubby and son and for me back to getting the house in order and errands to run as well as my daughter on her day off. Good night everyone.
After my guys watched their movie my son left to see some friends that were heading back to college today ..now that their Spring break is over. I really do not know why they wait until 9 at night to decide to get together . Did we do that at their age? I honestly can’t remember . I want to say no since I have no thought of it. Or age is settling in…. anyways he left and the house was quiet . Good thing .. bad thing .. don’t know I’ll let you know as summer approaches and the door swings open and close a bit more. He has only been home a week and out of the week he was in bed for two of them coming home sick.. even though he heads to the gym every morning and then a friend he gets together with for a bit that is going to a. college locally . He’s been pretty laid back . I want to say coming back this time after finishing Basic Training I think he’s matured some.but like I said will see by summer when all his friends are home. Plus is he will be working soon when construction sites open up for the season . Hopefully , he talks with the guy this week. Fingers crossed. Plus he will have his National Guard job one weekend a month and two drills this summer where he’s thinking he may have to go back to Missouri for one of them So he will be busy … after the house was quiet hubby and I went to bed . Well my hubby did I was wide awake . I decided to play a game on my phone and oh such a bad idea I was up and couldn’t find the two words I needed to finish the puzzle . Then my daughter arrived home and asked if I was up she forgot her house keys and boyfriend was driving so she didn’t bring her keys. My hubby heard my phone bing and that woke him (doesn’t take much lol) and unlocked the door . Now this was midnight . We chatted off and on through text after she went down to settle asking if her brother was home ? I said no she replied is that why your still up I said no I’m stuck on a crossword puzzle. Okay and maybe a bit of my son not home. I guess when he was at Basic this was the part I didn’t miss worrying where he was after midnight . But I I told myself in Basic he was doing things I do not want to know the half of .. know some, that I would not worry . But Mother’s worry. … at 1 I told my daughter I was going to get some sleep so we said goodnight and I laid there just thinking what where the two words I couldn’t figure out. My brain not being able to shut off.. around 1:30 I heard my son come home . Thankfully I wasn’t on my phone he would of saw the light and figure I was waiting up for him. I think when I finally settled in it was 2?ughh.. and then waking at 6 when the wind that was roaring hit against the house with a bang . I threw the blanket over my head and dozed off and on until 8:30 then gave up and went for a shower. Let’s say coffee tasted good and well needed.Tonight my hubby and I and maybe my son is coming . are going to a family members for supper and drinks and just spend time together. My daughter has to work until 8 tonight then will be with her boyfriend. I hope everyone has a good day and night themselves .
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.
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.
