Home again

for the past 10 days we haven't been at our house

we've been at our daughter's house looking after the pets and working on a few projects for them

like the railing on either side of the stairs off of their deck

we built this in two days --- in cooler weather we could have done it faster, but we decided to not over do it

one of the little projects I did in the house was to remove the cover from the couch and run it through the washer

down in the folds of the cover were some very interesting and random bits of everyday life -- a penny, a red skittle candy, a piece of cardboard from the top of a kleenex box, a soft baby rattle, an octopus block and a bird feather!

just before we went to to our daughter's the DH had his appointment with the surgeon that did his shoulder replacement

his doctor has now cleared him to lift what feels "comfortable"

that does not mean he can pick up 60 pound bags of concrete, but Mr Cute is definitely safe

 I love this picture of Mr Cute with his grandpa reading a good book

the trip home usually takes about 90 minutes -- yesterday because of heavy rains through Denver and some accidents on the highway it took us over 3 hours


 I did get two afghan squares like this finished

and this piece for the Etsy Bead Embroidery Guild's Third Bead Fest Fairy Tales Challenge is finally finished

and not a moment too soon -- the deadline is today

the piece is titled The Snow Queen

and I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone else did

this morning we have errands and shopping to do, I'm hoping to get back into a normal routine in the next couple of days

Wow! Just, wow!

And I love the Grandpa/grandson picture. I have fond memories of my FIL recording a book of small childrens' stories and sending a copy of him and of the book itself so that our kids could sit and listen and turn the pages when he said to.
