Enjoying the days

Yesterday...

Put Ben to work before he and Hayley returned home to Queensland.
He split all the firewood I had here that was too big to fit in the woodheater...

 And I carted it and stacked it in the wood shed


Like the T shirt?  Just as well he's not a dinosaur...right?
 
 
Denver came to the airport too.  We stopped at a Cafe on the way for lunch, and to take a few photos...

 boys being boys...Denver and Ben


 Ben, Denver, Hayley

Today...

It's pouring with rain!  Got the wood split just in time, so now I can enjoy the fire...


Yarn Along...

Felt in need of a bit of colour, so crochet a retro baby blanket...still need to finish the edging...
 
Now started a lap blanket for the loungeroom...in my normal neutrals :)
 
Reading At The Edge of the Orchard and really enjoying it.
 
And looking forward to starting the prequel in the Red River of the North series by Lauraine Snelling.
 
Lunchtime!  Then some crocheting...by the fire :)
 
Enjoy your day!!

Family... and friend


Son Ben, daughter in law Hayley and their friend Scott are visiting from Queensland.  Had to make the obligatory scones and jam and cream for afternoon tea...
 Scott, Hayley, Ben


Hayley got baptised while they were here.  At Hawley Beach...
 a few of us gathered for the occasion


Dave (who married them 7 years ago) did the honours...
 asking the relevant questions


 She's under there somewhere


 All done!


Then we went back to Dave and Lisel's for afternoon tea :)


On the Yarn Along front...
 Trying a new beanie design and reading THIS delightful little book



And remember the swan sitting on the nest from a few posts back?  Well here she is...
Mother and babies all doing well

Hope all is well with you too :))
