Visiting friends

I know that ya'll haven't heard from me in awhile. I have kinda lost my groove and still trying to get it back. It will happen, I know. It's just gonna happen in its own time. Thankfully, I have wonderful family and friends to support me on my journey back to finding my groove, and I went to visit with some of my friends this week. Did I go alone, you ask? No, no I did not. A couple of weeks ago, my GS spent the night at my and left his Sleep Monkey. Sleep Monkey is a turquoise-y colored sock monkey that I got for him awhile back. Well, Sleep Monkey was so comfy at my house that he decided to stick around for a bit. When I got ready to go on this trip, I asked, "Is Sleep Monkey coming home with you while I'm gone, or is he going with me on my trip?" In case you are wondering, here's the answer....

Sleep Monkey was so excited about going that he sat on the suitcase until it was time to go. He didn't want to put on his seatbelt, but I insisted.
 Sleep Monkey was fascinated that we humans were actually smart enough to figure out how to fly above the clouds. He wanted to know if we could go out and get some so we could spin it into yarn later. Have you ever tried to explain the physics of cabin pressure to a sock monkey? I don't really recommend it. But then I didn't really get his explanation of why they have no fear in swinging from tree to tree.
 Here we are on the ground in Denver,
And here's my pal, crochet designer extraordinaire, who met us at the airport to take us to her house.
 Here he is lounging by Rob and Brenda's lovely water feature, just chillaxin'...
and here he is waiting for the wonderful grilled dinner of steak, red potatoes and green beans. Brenda had prepared a tasty salad to go with everything. Tomorrow I'll post more pictures of Sleep Monkey's travels. Catch ya'll later!
