when brother is sick

baby Jet has been sick for a bit unable to shake a fever, croupy, bronchial virus illness that sent him to the hospital for a couple of days.  He is home now with meds and should start to feel better soon.

Four of his siblings came to my house so Jets mom and dad could take care of him.
I should be running around, cleaning up and getting ready for our three up-state New York grandchildren coming down on Friday to spend the week. Instead, I am sharing some glimpses and moments of our time together...

Sick little brother
hospital stay
siblings at Mom-Moms
ready for play

trip to the playground
slip down the slide
twirling and dancing
places to hide

snooze with the pup
splash in the sink  
swishing those bubbles
drawing with pink

buckled in car seats
noodles to eat
bedtime stories
Incredibly sweet

library visit
more books to read
pieces in puzzles
tummies to feed

climb in the playhouse
French fries to munch
peeking from high spots
all during lunch

toys scattered about
sink full of mess
washer still running
house in distress

tickles and smooches
diapers to change
fingers need wiping
smells that are strange

snuggles at bedtime
piggies and toes
bath time all finished
soon they will doze

sleeping so sweetly
my eyes behold
blessings from heaven
worth more than gold

Perfectly Precious Pets Party

Calling all precious pets
furry ones, feathery ones, fishy ones
those that oink, neigh, chirp or squeak
or make no sound at all but warm your heart and keep you entertained.
here is my Raider doing what he does most often... being an alert sentry.

Barnegat Lighthouse

Barnegat Lighthouse
My sweetheart and I planned a day together just to enjoy ourselves after a long string of working weekends doing yard work and all sorts of chores.

We are fortunate to live just over an hour driving distance to many shore points along the Jersey coast.
