January

January … I have never been a fan of this month I call it my blue month😥 it’s a month that there is nothing to look forward to it’s a dreary cold or rainy month and I crave the sun. This year it’s going by a bit faster it’s almost over and then February will be here and there’s Valentines Day to look forward to such a pretty holiday . Closer to Spring and a shorter month . Who gets the winter blues ?

Me myself and I …and Miss Abigail!

It’s a mild Friday evening and  everyone is out of the house ..my son had a meet and my husband is there , I can’t wait till Spring when I can see my son participate in outdoor track. Winter track never works for me not enough sitting room , a lot of things going around and I’m still getting over my cold, I’m  sure my son is fine he is busy concentrating on his meet . He will be happy there’s food for him when he gets home. That’s my part.My daughter is out with friends so it’s just myself and Miss Abigail who is on my bed at the moment nice and cozy so I am on the couch and coloring my  3rd   Page in my adult coloring book in a   Very Quiet house. Off and on I hear a thunk or a pounding noise but I tell myself that it’s the house settling after a warmer day and now cooler night . ….. I should be use to this by now this house has always made noises since we built 12 yrs ago. At first my husband didn’t believe me or should say didn’t want too until one night he was home by himself and heard the same noises. So I have  the tv volume up. 😂 It’s helping a bit. I going to concentrate on  my coloring. .🙂image

Snow Day #3

Once again woke to this. Everyone’s home well ..was my son and his buddies love a challenge so they took my subie and up our Long road of a driveway in their pajama pants they went yes…. pajama pants yeah they do not care to the diner down the road for some breakfast. So much for being snowed in. Boys….. My daughter  is enjoying  coffee with her dad and I . My hubby ended up not working so he will take his time clearing the driveway.  Well I guess I will grab another cup of coffee and then do what needs to be done around here, not much it will be a laxed day .🙂

Winter Ride..

imageimageimageOn Monday it was a holiday so my husband had it off and we decided to take a ride. The sun was shining but the temps where only 19  it was nice and warm in the car . We thought we would check out all the ice that everyone was talking about . The ice as you see was unbelievable, it’s so thick  it’s pretty how it flows down on the ledges of the side of the banks of the mountains . They look like beautiful sculptures . The mountain you see is the mountain my sons track team hiked up as well on the day off for practice , he’s hiked that plenty of times and never  it gets old. The younger new kids on the team loved it. So that was exciting to see where he hikes I had never seen it until that day it looks so amazing with bright blue sky above it . I must sa it was such a nice way to spend a cold winter day away from the house with my husband and what better way to end the ride but a stop at one of our favorite coffee places  for a white chocolate with a swirl of raspberry coffee  so good. ❤️

 

 

 

Getting through this winter….

Hi Everyone this is what’s going …is  keeping me sane 🙂 when I’m done with all the the house work and errands while I’m staying  inside where it’s warm with these brutal temperatures . This is a book that I found while decluttering the house it may be one of the kids possibly my sons from English class that they had to read at one time , it looked interesting so I set it aside to read when I finish my coloring page I had been working on , this one was more an easier one not as much detail but still fun and challenging.  Loving this  new adult coloring book. Going to be a cold weekend so after food shopping is done on Saturday and whatever else that needs taking care of .I will get cozy up  on the couch with a throw blanket and enjoy and make the best of this weather .  Happy  there’s nothing special planned for the weekend . ❤️

Long Day….

Today was a very long dreary day . My anxiety was up for once it wasn’t about worrying about my son I knew he was having fun on the slopes with his friends . It was from watching the snow fall endlessly all day and seeing the trees swaying back and forth . I felt  stuck in the house and being dreary out did not help. Boston  sadly is in rough shape over. A Foot of snow and coastal flooding so the schools and some business are closed tomorrow as well as for us too we got the call tonight that school is cancelled tomorrow due o the wind chill road conditions and busses not being able to start so a 3day weekend for us and the surrounding schools . My daughter will go into work tomorrow afternoon and my hubby will find out in the morning if he is to report.This is becoming a scary winter season ……can you say global warming or are we all going to be in denial to admit this. It’s been a very hot  stormy summer and now a very brutaly cold stormy winter. All of this is feeling pretty scary I must admit. This word is changing in so many ways and not all for the best makes me nervous. What can we do?  I’m just hoping for the sun  to come out at least even though it will be too brutal to go out . I just need the sun to shine . Let’s hope .Okay time for me to settle under thes blankets and try to get some sleep. Goodnight !
