Hanky, Hooky And Harmony

HANKY, because I have had a horrible cold this week. Along with a raw nose from all the blowing. Hooky, because I have been working on this monster, that still has about 20 more rows to go til finished.
 I have also been turning out the knitted wash/dish cloths.  I think I am ready to learn a new stitch now.
Mr. G is up in Seattle again this week, so my son Drew has been staying with me so I don't get scared!!!
Drew is a musician, so there has been lots of music in the house.  I looked out the window this afternoon and saw Drew and his buddy Jim sitting out front playing.  I had to take a picture.
With all the places to sit in our front yard, I have no idea why they were sitting there!!
I love the way the sunlight is streaming down the top of this photo.  I love that I am feeling better today.  I love that in two more days, Mr. G will be home.  Most of all, tonight, I love that every single one of the Chilean miners have been brought to safety!!!!

Awww, cute pics of Drew and Jimmy! Or is it Jim now?

Love the sun streaming in the last picture too.
Love the angle of the first picture! It is really neat.

SO happy for the Chileans who have all been safely rescued too! It is an amazing story.

Your Afghan really looks Fantastic!!

Sorry Mr. G is away, but we really enjoyed seeing him and Donavon tonight at dinner!!!

That is awfully sweet that Drew is keeping you company & glad your cold is on the mends!

I think it's a musician thing - my husband plays the guitar too and often has sat outside in the garden playing his guitar. Our neighbours' initial reaction was that they thought he was a bit of a crazy hippy but they're used to it now thankfully!

Love your photos, Kris. It's so sweet that your son came to stay with you. The rescue of the miners is a miracle. At the beginning I didn't believe it was possible.
