We're Back


How is everyone? Missed ya last week.
We spent a couple of nights with the babies and their parents. The little girl had an ear infection and the boy hives.  They've been fighting one thing after another for five weeks now. Ah, daycare and the joyous sharing of germs.
From there we went to Wilmington. I'd never been to Wilmington before. It's like a coastal Asheville, enjoyed it immensely.  It's a fun little town. Below are some of the pictures of where we stayed.
This was taken  from our window.


This was in front of a little cul-de-sac shop.


We arrived home to this. The first flowers of spring.
I'm visiting with Yolanda  and Mae today.  If you're in the vicinity, stop by and say hey.

Love those feet planters - and the sunset.
I hope you escaped picking up any of the ailments - and welcome back.

Andrew said...

Rather nice setting Germ gestation period from young children, about three days in my extensive experience.

You've never been to Wilmington? About time you went then! My wife loves the town. Wants to move there.
Sorry the kids were sick.

Birgit said...

What a nice view right outside your room. ...love those hobbit feet. Hope the kids started feeling better because that is tough to have ear infection and hives.

CJ Kennedy said...

How nice for the flowers to welcome you home.

DEZMOND said...

oh, noes, sorry to hear about the kids!

Welcome back, dear Sandra!

I vacationed in nearby Myrtle Beach a dozen times during the 70s and 80s and watched the local television station WWAY. I'm happy that you will soon be surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of spring. Believe it or not, Mrs. Shady and I took a trip across Central Florida last week and were able to see "fall" leaves of red and gold for the first time this winter, thanks to a prolonged cool spell from mid February to early March.

Have a great week, Sandra!

Welcome back. Sounds like you had a nice time away (hoping the little ones get better). I've been through Wilmington several times on travel but never actually stayed overnight. The coastal points of Delaware are like a second home to me!

Looking forward to your visit today with the Mutant gang :)

Pat Hatt said...

Sounds and looks like a peaceful little spot. Uggg to the germs from the daycare.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Mae. It was very peaceful, very serene.
Yup, I'll be glad with their immunity system gets built up.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, EC. I liked the feet planters too;) I felt puny for about 24 hrs, but hooked up with my Vit C and that seemed to take care of it:)

Sandra Cox said...

Hi Andrew,
How are you?
They always have something.

Sandra Cox said...

I know. How embarrassing, right?
We're with your wife. Wilmington looks like a fun place to live.

Sandra Cox said...

Hi Birgit,
It was nice. Thanks:)
They both have tubes and the little girl still got an ear infection. sigh.

Sandra Cox said...

Indeed. It was a lovely surprise. The first flowers of spring always catch me off guard. In a very nice way:)

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Dez. They are ALWAYS sick.

Stephanie Faris said...

How beautiful! Now I'm looking up Wilmington to see how far it is from me. I love anything coastal and since I enjoyed our trip to Asheville a couple of years ago, I'm sure I'd love a coastal version of that!

Sandra Cox said...

That's funny about the fall colors:)
Our trees are trying to bud out and the birds are nesting.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Mae. I'm excited to be visiting with you:)
I haven't spent too much time in Delaware.

Sandra Cox said...

It was, Pat. And Uggg to the germs indeed.

Sandra Cox said...

Hi Steph,
It's actually on the Cape Fear River and the beach is about ten miles away. I think you'd enjoy it.

Adam said...

I hear it's really nice

Sandra Cox said...

I thought it was. I'd love to go back.

Welcome back! What pretty pictures! It looks like a lovely place to visit.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Tabbies:)

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Cherie. It was a lot of fun.

Heather R. Holden said...

Such lovely pictures! That's a shame about all the havoc those germs have been causing, though. (Shame on you, germs!)

Christine said...

welcome home,nice photos and getaway.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Sounds like quite a trip. From sick kiddos to beautiful water shots to returning to a bit of springtime. At least you took the good with the bad, and made the most of it. Welcome home.

Margaret D said...

Sorry to read about the children, hope they are better soon.
Lovely selection of photos and it seems you enjoyed your time away.

Birgit said...

My niece would always get ear infections even with the tubes. What is nice to say is that she grew out of this problem which is nice.

Magic Love Crow said...

Welcome back Sandra! Sorry about the kids! The area you visited is beautiful!! We are in Spring here too, but the weather is getting colder and snow is coming back! Just a little! LOL!

Lee said...

Welcome back, Sandra. :)

Hives are horrible things...I had my fair share of them when I was a kid.
