{ Coming up to Breathe }


I've managed to climb out of the kleenex pile and take a breather, a much needed breather.

I don't have much to share with you today, I think my brain has taken a break, it's needing rest, it's needing restoration and I think I'm on the road to getting that now that my beautiful children are well on the road to recovery.

So today was a quiet, easy, unplanned, do whatever you like day for the kids. And me? I was the caregiver, the nurse, the cook and the provider, I ran myself ragged, I poured numerous cups of juice and handed out various kinds of snacks. But it's worth it, because they're feeling better.


My sweet boy playing with his cars



Miss Bella napping near Nicholas. One thing I love about the pugs is that no matter where the kids are, they are near them and especially when they're sick.


Miss Lola stayed by Jasmine's side


My beautiful girl spent the day in her bedroom, laying on her bed, watching tv, reading, crafting and just relaxing.




When the kiddos are sick, mommy lets them pick their own lunch....


o now that it's evening and they're bathed and watching a movie, I'm going to finally sit down and relax with my crochet.....but first, here's a quick recipe for you. Rotini with Chourizo and Bacon. Yum Yum!

Glad Jasmine and Nicholas are on the mend. Isn't it always a great relief when they've turned that corner! We can relax a little.
Those crocheted hearts look super!

So happy to hear your babies are feeling better :)

You think you could teach me how to crochet over the internet?! lol Your hearts are really cute! I tried teaching myself to knit - didn't go so well.

I'm glad you're kids are feeling better. Although Jasmine is either ignoring you or she could use another tylenol. My daughter CJ has the same color hair. Beautiful....Kae

Thinking about you today caring for sick kiddos...glad they're on the mend. Those are wonderful photos of them and the other furbaby kids! You're doing great things with the hearts, too. Should be ready for that garland before Valentine's Day!

Be well.
