We’ll get there

Blockage: clearingnowohthankgoodness. Cold: from me to Richard and back. It surprises me as if it were all something new–which is a good sign, I like being used to being well.

But I needed not to feel sorry for myself so I finished another hat (my Congressional hats being done.)  Then I made good headway on some lace in the Grape Hyacinth colorway from Abstract Fibers and found that just looking at it puts me in that familiar, magical place where I feel like I’ve never knit anything so pretty in my life. They do nice work.

Thank you Kim and Richard-the-younger for the Parker pictures. Stop the germs, we want to go hold him!

How funny: my own sinuses have decided to give me a break. I just wish they had chosen to do so when I was awake, rather than rousting me every two hours like a fretful child having a growth spurt.

I just love seeing pics of Parker! Our family did the “trading of germs” during the week between Christmas and New Year. Our Neti pot never got such a good workout! It’s amazing how well it works and how it cuts the duration of the cold in half!

Blockage cleared here yesterday and hats are one down, one to go.

Look at those big eyes! Taking everything in! He’s curious–is it too early for Dr. Seuss?

sorry you’ve got the cold back — hope it goes away pronto!!

note to LynnM on her comment: its never too early for Dr. Seuss! (our grandson got several for Christmas — he was 10 days old)

We thank the new parents as well. While I look forward to that first photo of you holding Parker, in the meantime, these are sweet too!

What a dear face he has :-}
Hope you get clear of all those germs soon!

Now here’s what you do the next time the cold germs come calling: Mark UNACCEPTED. RETURN TO SENDER!

I know we keep saying this, but Parker is a beautiful child.

Which reminds me of a very old joke. Not all babies are born looking lovely, and there was one fellow who could not bring himself to say, “How beautiful” when the youngster was not. But he didn’t want to insult the parents, so he came up with a phrase with which no one could argue — “It’s a BABY!”

I suppose I don’t really need to tell you to get plenty of fluids and rest, but because I’d like to pretend I can help, I will. Get plenty of fluids and rest! We all want you well!
