It’s a cool Saturday night . The stars are out blanketing the stars like diamonds it’s very beautiful . My son has friends over their enjoying a fire … the last weekend before the big move in day for all of them in college. I can hear the bass from the radio their playing , echoing through the open windows and I’m sure laughter is to follow. My daughter is with Miss Abigail down In here place with a friend. So full house but deafening quietness inside. When your adult kids have company you do not bother them. Oh how the wind changes and life blows in a new direction whether we are ready or not….
Laying in bed trying to read . But the wind is roaring which is an understatement .. it’s reeking havoc! It’s a bit unsettling. So trying to focus on my book is a bit hard. My hubby is lucky he’s snoring away and not hearing it or he would be going from one window to another like a dog .. hahaha.. My son who settled in a bit earlier then us , texted me from his room asking if I was still up and if I was hearing the wind. He couldn’t believe how loud it was. He said he wished he was sleeping so he wouldn’t have to listen to it. We’ve been texting back and forth trying to take our minds off of it . But it’s an endless roar . It’s like a force that doesn’t want to be reckon with….. and it’s won one battle I put my book down on my bedside table and shut the light off . And went under my covers a bit more . I’m sure no animals are running around tonight , their probably tucked themselves down deep in our woods waiting for it to pass like myself. My son said goodnight so I believe he is hoping to sleep and not have to 😂listen to it anymore . I’m getting there myself. My daughter is with her boyfriend I hope they drive safe , so Miss Abigail is downstairs in their place . My daughter said she would be fine she would settle on her bed and sleep. Oh my I think since I turned the light off the wind has gotten louder.. I can take a thunderstorm much better then wind. Our trees are being thrashed around out there and the house is making strange noises when it blows around along the house. Okay I think I’m going to cozy up a bit more under the blankets and try to sleep. 😕
The wind was blowing as we left for my husbands appointment 40mins away , as we drove the wind got worse blowing at the car a bit. My daughter and I brought him in they told us to come back in two hrs . So my daughter and I drove 15mins away to the Starbucks and went through drive-thru and ordered two hot white chocolate with two pumps of raspberry flavor lattes and then sat in the parking lot watching the wind pick up and wondered how it was back home…. two and half hrs later we headed home after a successful colonoscopy for my husband who was so happy it was done and wanting a coffee and danish . Then we headed on our way … as we drove into the driveway all looked good until the house and our yard came insight ..in the yard was a top of a tree laying there snapped right off. The wind was vicious the trees swaying in a tantrum kind away. Fighting the car doors and house door that was not letting us go against the wind opening them so we could get out of the cold..When finally we got into the house we notice oil had been delivered thankfully it’s brutally cold. Miss Abigail sitting in the kitchen waiting patiently for us even though we know she was not liking the wind that sounded like a freight train coming through the house once inside. The wind as gotten worse as the temps as well. On Facebook seeing a lot of power outages in our area and a lot of trees down and roads blocked. I can take the cold but the roaring of this wind needs to stop. I want to color but I don’t know if I can focus on it. When I keep hearing banging noises outside . Is a bit concerning. Thankfully my daughter is back with her boyfriend . I think he will be staying for the night , his road is blocked with a tree and down power lines and all the power trucks are out but there is so many downed power lines they can’t keep up so it may take awhile. So we are settled in with my hubby having to lay low until work tomorrow . Haven’t heard from my son but I’m sure he is busy after last night.. a week and 4 days and he flys home ! Can’t come fast enough. I guess I will get off here and try to color or read.. a blogger friend wanted me to post my coloring I did . Still working on the page but I’ll post🙂
Day 4 of still down… for a bit last night I thought I kicked it out of me , and though finally I could get some sleep. NOT! Wide awake because I have been resting so much just watching TVs so just been sitting around during the day . Then the body aches came back and the night was a long one . Woke feeling lousy if I could of slept probably would of been better this morning. .. not helping that it was a mild day and now dropping and the winds have picked up so here we go again with the change of the weather. Today my daughter laid on the couch still not feeling good as well. So as we sipped cups of tea we watched a movie a friend of hers gave her to watch. Must say so different then I thought and the twists in this movie where so many , just when you thought you figured it out ..no another twist came along. . So worth a watch . Now it’s evening and the wind is roaring banging against the house at the moment .I believe Miss Abigail is down with her mom . Earlier she sat in front of me starring at me , nothing like getting starred down by a cat🙄 I had to send a pic to my daughter who was in shock .. she told me I could send her down . I think she went down after on her own. Nooo she’s back! Hahaha. Well I guess it’s time to now try settling in bed…see if I can get into a book …
It’s Daylight savings time and always changing the clocks back never sets well with me at first. You would think getting an extra hour sleep is nice but I think my body feels like I’m over sleeping if that make since and can anyone agree? Happy it’s a sunny day , cold but how it should be this time a year. Keeping myself busy …. okay trying. I’m hoping my son will get to make his 1st call home since starting Basic Training . I hope we counted right. So need to let him know a few things that I think will make him happy . According to his last letter he is happier has a good bunch of friends he can laugh with so of course it will be happy things we tell him. As I stated keeping busy so I decided to make some homemade chicken and rice soup for supper . It’s making the house warm and smells so good. Hubby’s working on his barn .Its just Miss Abigail and I inside as my daughter is at work . Last night as my mind was thinking and my hubby was watching college football as the wind was thrashing around outside banging against the house it had Miss Abigail running around the house looking for a place to hide. My hubby cringing with the thought of the power going out. I focused my mind on adult coloring and started another page . Didn’t get too far but a good start. Well time to finish making my soup . Cross your fingers for me that my son can call. Please..
Once again another Saturday dark and raining the only good thing temps the last two days have been close to 60. According to the forecast winds are suppose to pickup this afternoon bringing a cold front in and hopefully not bringing down wires cannot loose power this weekend we .. I. Need that phone working . If my son can call home I need to talk to him. On Friday it down poured all day but my daughter and I decided to say whatever and ventured out in it . We drove 40 minutes to treat ourselves to a Starbucks holiday coffee. It’s not an often thing to go there just when we want to say whatever to what the world is throwing at us and need a pick me up treat. Then it was home and listening to more rain beating on the house. … anyway the winds are picking up already and my hubby and I are showered ,enjoying our coffee then soon will be heading out for food shopping. Then settling in after and then we will see what this weather brings. I have several books that really need to be read before the library doesn’t let me renew them any longer. So I will try to focus on them unless something on tv catches my attention. Well I guess it’s time to finish getting ready and get things done .
As you see the sky’s cleared the sun came out but the wind came with it. It’s night now and the winds are raging havoc on the trees .My hubby does not like thunderstorms and winds ..high winds, tonight I actually do not it’s wild out there. Trying to settle in bed it was a quiet day did what needed to be done then relaxed started feeling under the weather with so much going around I’m not surprised Plus the rain was bothering my hip I feel blah yes hahaha I do not know how else to subscribe it . So watching tv in bed with my hubby. My son is as now gone to bed , my daughter is out with her boyfriend and probably not happy with me but that is okay…yes she is 23 but if you live under our roof and do not pay rent I have a say to state my opinions about certain things that I know she will regret . I know that’s her problem being 22 Shes an adult this parenting thing is so frusturating thinking it’s time to charge some rent … Honestly I do not want to have to be right and it’s not about her needing me because it’s not ,it’s about her finding a foundation ..growing up getting it together and I getting some sleep and not worrying if she’s home yet, or having to pick the pieces up when she falls apart . I just feel so tired of worrying about everything and it gets me no where. I feel I should be able to be happy I’ve done my job .. Im starting to get use to the idea my youngest is graduating and will be heading to college and I want my daughter to have the confidence the ability to grow like her brother is yes they are such opposites but I think they could learn something from one another …well the wind is not calming down it’s actually worse and so I think I will try to cozy up under the covers and try to sleep so I do not hear the wind and I don’t think myself to an all nighter .. Goodnight Everyone.🙂
