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.
This is our summer evenings . The sun setting in front of us into the mountain but its rays of light peaking through the tree that gives us some shade and is home to the chickadee’s and robins. Tonight we shared the beautiful evening with our turkeys and fox eating and frolicking in the grass just a bit away from us. They new we were there sitting on our deck . I believe they find this as their home as well. As we talked they just did their thing then as the night slowly rolled in and the light turning into darkness they disappeared into the edge of our woods to settle for the night as we headed into the house to settle in as well , now the house is as quiet as our woods. Everyone tucked in for the night in there place in the house , I will do the same ..enjoy my book for a bit until my eyes get heavy with sleep.
just finished food shopping and setting up with my hubby’s and son for his Birthday get together . He’s having his closes friends over for Hamburg’s hotdogs , s’mores , cake , a bonfire. The Corn hole game is set up (hahaha) the name always makes me laugh but the kids as well as adults love this yard game . It’s a interesting game . As I sit on my swing waiting for the time for people to show I’m amazed that I can hear the acorns already dropping in our woods. It doesn’t help that we have noticed the sun is setting a bit earlier the past couple of weeks too . It just doesn’t seem possible . Winters are long and summers are short …. just sad . Yes I do like the cooler nights it’s easier for sleep. I guess we can’t have it all 🙂 before you know it it will be a cup of hot tea kind of nights. Take it as it comes what else can you do.. anyways it could be a long night will have kids sleeping out in tents if the rain holds off if not it’s going to be the living room floor.
Good Morning ! Enjoying my coffee and happily another morning of sometime with my son, he’s not a big talker well not at home at school he is but that’s always the way when your a teenager. He had good run may have made it to All States will find out today he missed it by a second in one race that he ran. Very proud of him.
Back tracking : last night when he arrived home , if you read my last post he had a track meet 3hrs away ,my hubby and I couldn’t make it so we waited for him to come home my hubby caved into sleep , of course I was up ..in bed but awake. He arrived after midnight and I heard him come in so I looked down our hall and could see him peeking out the door …hmm I’m like what is he doing ? Next minute he shuts the door locked it turned the kitchen light off and walking faster then normal down the hall to his room he spots me looking at him he says “oh your awake I’m scared” I’m like what! He tells me that as he got out of the car and walking up to our house he heard this screaming crying howling noise I’m like oh the boys are out (coyotes) I call them the boys. I asked if they where in our woods he said that he was trying to figure that out but wasn’t sure he said close ..maybe ?The most eerie sound of the wild to hear if their hunting it sends chills up your spine . After that I just let him get some sleep. and I did as well . Then this morning it was just him and I before he went to school so that was nice . Like I said before ,few and far between the moments with him. Now all is quiet everyone’s at work and school and I’m catching up on the news.. sad once again today .. my heart is breaking for all those angels and their families In Florida .😥 never take any thing or anyone for granted that is why even if I have only moments here and there with my children who are always on the go I will take that . It’s all special to me . So hug your kids tell them you love them everyday.❤️ with that it’s time to get busy myself do somethings around the house . Have a great day everyone.
Tonight I have this strange feeling , almost an uneasy feeling maybe its because the temps have dropped dramaticlly so one I’m freezing and its making my head feel out of it .or maybe it was the the little talk my son and I had and it did not turn out to well ..so it not sitting well with me. …but that is for another day…anyways we had the living room window open a bit for Miss Abagail she loves looking out at night and listening to the peepers are they loud tonight they have been half the day ..isn’t that unusual for them to be out during the day? My husband and I where relaxing in the living room watching TV when we both looked at one another and he turned the TV down. My husband was like did you hear that It was a whistle sound okay as much as I did not want to agree I did it was so eerie. I told him the other night while we where sleeping well he was I was trying too I heard that same noise at first I thought it was him he can make some weird noises in his sleep he laughed at the remark. but it wasn’t when I heard it again It sent chills up my spine and I pulled the covers up closer to my head,,,, but then it was gone .I hate night sounds especially when your house is surrounded by woods. Does anyone know if there is a bird or animal that makes that strange whistle noise at night. It’s just so unusual for us we have never heard that before.
