Photo of the Day
The kids and I spent the weekend in New Jersey and the pictures here reflect both Saturday and Sunday. It wasn’t a long visit. We drove up on Saturday and didn’t get there until late afternoon. We spent Saturday night with my parents and then left around lunchtime on Sunday.
My Aunt Bobby had a fall and broke her arm just under her shoulder and had to have surgery to repair the break. We stopped in for a visit on Saturday and got a very loving welcome from her dog, Shayna. Shayna had kisses for everyone, especially for Nick and my mother.
The bottom two pictures were taken before anyone else was awake on Sunday morning. Well, that’s not completely true — Clare was awake also as you may be able to tell from the two empty beds in the front guest room where we slept. It’s getting lighter earlier in the morning these days and darker later, a great sign that winter is waning, despite the cold temperatures and persistent grey days. A spot of sunshine is a welcome respite in the dark Northern winter.
