Good Morning!

Saturday morning waking early after some really weird dreams.. if only could remember them. dragging myself out from under the warm cozy covers I jumped in the shower then to the kitchen where Miss Abigail was waiting. I wouldn’t say patiently for her morning treat, that I have happened to have started as a bad habit because if I do not grab it fast enough while entering the kitchen her meowing will drive you crazy… and every morning I say to her “why are you not downstairs with your mama .. I grab my coffee and flick through the tv channels nothing is on even the news this morning is boring. So I keep on going through the channels and come upon a cartoon that my son loved and had just said the other day after I found a GIF to send him which was the character of this cartoon .. how much he missed it and that time… oh the GIF’s are addicting but so much fun when you can’t find the right word to explain something to someone. Anyways its Sponge Bob squarepants. The strangest cartoon ever but has managed to stay around for many yrs. and yes a sponge he is πŸ™„ as I’m enjoying my coffee and waiting for the washer to stop .. yes never ending always laundry to do.. I look away from the tv to check my phone that is going off , when I look back up towards the tv and I see thisI swear she out to get me. πŸ™„ I am also thinking she doesn’t like the show very much as well. Going to be a long day with this girl… I guess time to put the wet close into the dryer .. and make a food shopping list.


COLD! ❄️❄️

I know …. I’ve posted already today but I’m awake still. I’m laying in bed though so that’s a good thing. It’s so cold and I wanted my bed. As I’m laying here and was trying to organize my Facebook wall and messaging my daughter off and on because she is awake as well. I keep hearing over my hubby’s snoring hahaha … okay to get serious the popping and cracking noise of our house proving all to well how cold it is. My daughter has a friend sleeping over who has to do a night shift so has to go for 1in the morning and oh is it going to be nasty going out to her car in -1 temps , I feel so bad for her. My son texted me tonight he said it was only 1 in Missouri all day and he had to be out in it. I think the cold got to him even though he should be more use to it then his army buddies that are from the south . Being he was brought up in New England. He was grumpy and yes I could tell even over text that he wrote he didn’t actually come out with it that he was grumpy I could just feel it when I read his messages . I said are you feeling cooped up ? He wrote ” oh my god yes! ” ” you can tell ?” I said oh yes I can . He is such a free spirit … even though he loves what he’s doing . Just always been that way. Love and hate that about him it’s like trying to tame a wild animal at times hahaha didn’t know how else to put it. But then on the other hand his heart and humbleness is huge. My daughter is that way too but I don’t feel I have to tame a wild animal with her πŸ™‚ So I was making an album of his army photos on Fb and now their all on my feed and people are liking them and I’m thinking he will not be impressed πŸ™„ I didn’t realize if I made an album in photos so there all together it comes up in the news feed… 😩 yeah that will really impress him… not! I told my daughter and she laughed and said yeah they kept coming up as notifications on my phone that you posted. Oh well not much I can do about it now. Earlier I was watching videos and reading about Hygge I know so random but I just heard another loud pop and it reminded me of this .. a few of my friends on here and my hubby were talking about it . It’s so interesting . I love to talk more about it but my eyes are not wanting to stay open and it is late so I guess I will get under the covers a bit more and get some sleep. Goodnight everyone.

Here we go again ..

Woke early to the sound of my hubby plowing well earlier then that but I’ll get to that after… anyways hearing the tractor I assumed we got more snow then predicted. I could see the sun coming through the side of the closed shades , ahh at least the sun was out so that’s good but knowing it wouldn’t warm up much if anything I’m hearing we will be in the -6 by tonight into Thursday. Here we go again these cold spells I believe are worse then the snow. My body is feeling the cold coming in I’m feeling a bit stiff. on my second cup of coffee I know it will not help but taste good (hahah) this afternoon it will change to a cup of decaf tea, while I watch my daytime shows. Getting back to waking up earlier … we’ll I didn’t talk to my son much last night I thought I would give him a break since the last few nights he was responding with one word answers finding out that after class and his chow time he was at the gym .. hmm why didn’t he just tell me that . πŸ™„ so last night if he texted then I would respond if not then I knew he was busy. My hubby giving in texted him and after awhile my son responded with a hi and then my hubby said we didn’t want to bother you but just wanted to say hi . Catching my hubby I just shook my head . In good humor tho my son responded with just relaxing doing nothing … ughh can’t win . I still let him be thinking if he wanted to chat with me he would since my hubby was getting one word answers after a bit. I can be such a mother hen I wanted to back off a bit hahaha I’m sure you know this about me reading my postsπŸ™‚and no he didn’t text me . But it was all good . My hubby and I were cold we decided to settle in our room him watching tv and playing a game on his phone while I tried to read yes tried … cannot get into the book I’m reading ,Milkman and no hope of getting to the library today I’m hoping when my daughter gets home from her boyfriends she may have a book I can borrow . Speaking of that ..she stayed at his house was going to come home but when going out to warm her car up she said the snow was coming down so fast and more then when they arrived there and his vehicle at the garage getting fixed she drove him home because of worrying about getting snowed in here well she got snowed in there . Which I’m happy she decided to stay there ,he lives at home while he saves up a bit more like my daughter is doing and it’s basically a big mountain he lives upon so their at a higher elevation so they tend to get more snow. The thought of her driving down the mountain in the snow at night by herself was not a thought I wanted to think of and that being said we had her kitty well cat , with us and being that there was nothing on tv and my book just bored me and no text from my son . I fell asleep at 10 . I couldn’t believe it so early for me, until I woke at 3 thinking it was much later then that I wanted to cry hahaha , not literally πŸ™‚ then I knew why Miss Abigail was scratching on our bed jumping up on the bed pawing at my hubby’s face (hahaha) he cant win if it isn’t a toilet paper roll ( need to read my post on that) it’s the cat. After trying to get her down and settle he woke . I was like oh great she has him up since he walked out to the kitchen . I settled under the covers more to find him coming back telling me he was just checking to see how much snow we got. Then that’s when I woke to him plowing

I grabbed my phone that was on my bedside table checking to see if my daughter texted nothing but a text from my son stating that he forgot to tell me last night that he received the book I had sent to him hmm.. I had a feeling if I didn’t text him last night I would get a text of some sort in the morning my instinct wasn’t to far off he says he knows I need him are his words he has stated many times but I think he needs me haha yeah we are a lot alike πŸ™„ . That was good to know tho that he received his book now he will be able to enjoy it. It’s 11:30 and I’m still enjoying my coffee after cleaning up the kitchen after breakfast . The washing machine is ready to go figuring do a load today then running it tomorrow being so cold may not be a good idea. The house is pretty much clean . My daughter isn’t home yet hope she isn’t stuck up their her cat is wandering all over the house ,I’m thinking she’s getting antsy for her to come home. Supper is going to be leftovers tonight and random things if no one wants the leftovers , we defiantly will not starve . Thinking spaghetti and meatballs and sausage will be good for tomorrow when the temps dip even more. I am not going to go out in this …. with hearing about a lot of people including my bestie falling on the ice this week I’m not pushing it. Well time to run the washer find some lunch and chat with my hubby. Have a good day everyone. Keep warm all of you who are getting affected due to the polar vortex .


Here we are again , Monday! It is ….enjoying my coffee as the morning sun is shining in , the weekend was nice , especially When I can chat more with my son and having my daughter home at night the last couple of days after work . Having some laughs . and fun conversations around the kitchen table which we have not done in a bit . Sunday was quieter , I enjoyed a cup of hot tea and read my book , took some down time from doing things that needed to be done around the house . Made it to bed at a earlier time after finishing my book. Now on to my next good read , after every thing is done around my house. I’ll record my daytime shows as I need to run out and get some errands done. Since it’s looking like a possible snow storm coming in Tuesday afternoon through Wed morning ughh. I know … what can you do … I’ve neglected my journaling I need to get back into it , it’s not because I haven’t enjoyed it I do just been busy with reading my books from the library and yes so on so on ( hahaha) not enough hours in a day. It’s a balancing act. And when family is home and we are getting time to actually have some moments of good conversation , laughing , or just sitting in silence watching a movie I’ll take it. Now being a new week I can get back into my things I like to do since my daughter will be busy with work, boyfriend , and my hubby working then coming home and having his own downtime after helping me cleanup after supper. My son texting me at night off and on. But I do believe maybe will be less now heading into February his last month of training so it will be crunch time for him getting things done so he can come home in March. I cannot wait. πŸ™‚ well I guess if I want to do what I’ve been neglecting it’s time to get things done around here . Have a great day everyone!


Friday is here.. woke to my phone going off twice one my Son messaging me Have a good day! And then the second one from his long time ..5 yrs ..on and off maybe on again girlfriend , yes a long time of this but that’s for another day . Let’s just say she has grownup a lot graduating from High School .so it was her messaging me have a fabulous day Kim ! From Ireland . She attends College there. I am totally in awe ( hahaha) such a beautiful start to my day. My son must be missing me . And his girlfriend too? After that I dragged myself into the shower and enjoyed the steamy warmth of the hot water waking me and getting me to the kitchen for my coffee. Soon after my daughter came up and enjoyed a cup with me. ..Until it was time for her to get ready for work and for myself to get some bills paid and yes do some laundry . After I put a roast in to bake for supper and surprisingly the day flew by . Now just finishing a hot cup of tea and soon I ll eat my dinner. Such sad news… the candy company that made the box of candy that was shaped as hearts and different coolers and had different sayings or a simple word this candy for Valentine’s Day is no longer … 😩 I loved those little candy’s giving those little boxes out…I know and you thought it was something really sad ( hahaha) well it is for me πŸ™‚these little guys such a fun candy. I’m thinking I’ll have my book finished tonight read longer then I wanted to. After my son had texted saying how they were moved to different dorms and new roommates he said goodnight I had been reading off and on before that I went back to it to finish the chapter I was reading and telling myself I would go to bed a bit earlier …. well looking up from my book the clock read 11 .I guess I finished more chapters .. so I called it a night. I really want see how this book ends so I’ll am going to finish it tonight. I guess I will eat some supper and clean the kitchen up with a plate waiting for my daughter as well . Have a good evening.

Back to routine..

It’s Tues feels like a Monday ,3 day holiday weekend has come and gone. Now back to the routine, Hubby at work and my daughter too. My son back to his classes so back to getting A text after 6 in the evening off and on until 9. And I just made stuff shells that are baking as the washing machine is rumbling through out the house. I did some dusting. And my daughter is grabbing the things I needed at the store when she gets out of work . Thinking it wouldn’t be a great idea to risk slipping on some ice with my hip , since the temps are now in the 20’s but the ice is here and there. Tomorrow I will get to the post office and mail my sons book. Ready for Spring….πŸ™‚ but for now I will just enjoy my reading and adult coloring. I know I have plenty of books to get through. It’s going on 3 already I guess I kept busy today … stuff shells smell delicious. And the house is clean and warm can’t complain… plus the sun is shining . Miss Abigail has tucked herself away in one of the bedrooms where the sun is shining in more then the others feeling the suns warmth , I believe she will stay that way until the sun goes down. No coffee this afternoon or tea just yet. Water is a good thing (hahaha) too much coffee and a full moon hmm …doesn’t mix , sounds strange but true . Had too much caffeine then with the full moon ..Sleep was hard to come by last night. So drinking my water then after when it starts to feel a bit cooler in the house I will have a nice hot cup of decafe Tea. Time to check my shells and the washing machine has stopped. Have a good day everyone!

Productive Saturday…

Yes Saturday is here and it’s nothing but lazy… let’s see my husband painted the bathroom a new color All morning then checked the tractor and moved our cars for our plow guy if needed. As I did what laundry needed to be done and made a big pot of chicken and rice soup and baked a cake for desert . House is clean . Phones are charged and generator is ready if needed as well. I believe we are ready for the storm. Now just sitting enjoying a cup of tea . And listening to the weather channel…. and thinking of doing some reading . Since I’m now cozy under a blanket and it feels like a thing to do . I’ll check in later most likely with some before and after pics of the snow.
