20170314_151518-1            Today at 6 Am  Stella the Blizzard arrived and it covered the bare ground remarkably fast. and now you can see we have snow and at 8:40 pm it’s still snowing and the wind is still blowing and Spring is about two days away but does not seem possible. My poor husband is outside at this moment plowing our road of a driveway with our tractor so he will be ready to jump in the hot shower then bed . This winter cannot end fast enough. It’s been a long one for everyone I know. I hope if any of you had stella as a visitor all of you are safe and warm. well a short post tonight but hmy daughter and I are going to watch the season finale of This is Us ..so goodnight everyone lets hope for some sun in the morning and melting.IMG_20170314_135804_887-1

 

 

The door open the door closes….constantly

Good thing I have many doors to my house,  many comings and goings lately and I think more to come. I think it makes the kitty Miss Abigail’s head spin. since my son got his drivers license he is constantly going somewhere well in reason …..and my car as well right now it’s fine I do not have to get out has much   in the  winter  my hip does not like the cold .So my Son does do well grabbing things if I  need him to but lately I  just go with my husband or daughter.  When summer gets here it will be a different story he will need to have his own car. He is loving how he can just go and not have to wait for a ride and my husband and I actually enjoy the break of being a taxi. Never thought we would feel this way ,at first it was a little sad I felt not as needed but now I see he just needs me in a different way moral support, we talk more it’s nice this little boy that I once knew now stands in front of me a  nice young man and now with my older daughter I have  a whole new insight a new relationship of conversations laughs with them and their friends and yes the comings and goings and  can’t forget a lot of quiet nights home with my husband also. Funny how life comes back around and so fast.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have and my daughter as well.

Contentment…

It’s a three day weekend and so far it’s been a nice calm nothing that needs  to be done weekend,  happy for that I think I catching the cold my Son and husband have had.   On Saturday I did some decluttering  around the house and some dusting and rearranging things and as I was taking off the throw blankets on my sofa I moved my sofa cushion and under it I found a dog treat  I just stood there and smiled and thinking yes another sign like he was saying Hi mommy ..I know I haven’t lost my mind well not yet 🙂 to some it was just a treat that fell down in the sofa but to me it’s a sign he was was saying he was still with us in spirit and to me that is  a happier thought. As the day progressed my husband and son put our new TV stand up I am in the process of changing and as my son would say updating our house you would think this was an  old house no it isn’t but he is 16 and image  is everything. I am hoping his head comes out of the clouds soon. ..okay the old TV stand did have to go and now I am getting a new coffee table hopefully a newer sofa .  and new paint  on the walls as well. yes change.

Sunday it’s a much quieter day ,My daughter at work and my son off with his friends and Miss Abigail my daughters cat getting into everything is it. still a full moon? she has been a crazy cat lately. and I am still slowly going through our house and decluttering yes its another boring day I am sure some are thinking but I am actually content .I am not a winter person. and even though the sun is shining it is still to cold for me and why spend money on something silly when I can use it for things I want in my house. I m not trying to be fancy just comfortable we built this house 10 yrs ago and its not been changed around to much and it’s time and I never felt I had it cozy enough I like the cozy feeling so I am determine to do that . Tomorrow will get out because I know my husband is inching to he needs to be constantly on the go and I am just content to write take care of my home and family and well yes enjoy my coffee runs my addiction 🙂 but honestly it does not take much to make me happy especially now being older I have come to enjoy the little things in life ….is that so bad ?  Tell me I would love to know what you think Well my son is home and is hungry and mom is on duty .

Life……

what is life …let’s see when I was a little girl it was  the smell of fresh cut  grass coming through your open window , bright sun shining in  and jumping out of bed as fast as you could to get outside and feel the grass under your feet. spending the day outside playing kickball or riding your bike with the neighborhood kids until you could hear your mother’s voice yelling supper time. when winter came we couldn’t wait for the snow ,making snow angels and snow forts trying to find the biggest hill to slide down till you couldn’t feel your toes then it was hot chocolate with marshmallows floating around in it. Awww the the life of a kid we we thought we were invisible life was good . Then adulthood came .. college work ,what we were expected to be Or I should say what society expected of us …I must say I was one of the lucky ones my parents just expected us to be happy save and healthy good honest adult and  which I am happy for that . I am a mom now and I go by the same idea  .I am proud of my kid’s no matter what I only ask for them to be respectful to others and honest to themselves and work hard.study hard and live their life to the fullest THEIR way . I get so upset what pressures the kids are under now and the technology that has taken away the play time I grew up with kids do not know what they have missed  .I know life changes but why does everything have to, we put so much pressure on our graduates .. The kids now just have to much handed to them and I try not to fall into that pattern but it’s hard I see kids that have everything handed to them and their selfish and want more but then I see stressed out kid’s depressed kids kid’s heading down a bad path ..  Not all of them but for the most part a large amount of them. I hope at least my kid’s know me not pushing them to the point of exhaustion does not mean I do not  care ….but that I  do care and I want them to be happy rounded adults.
