Oohing and aahing
Here is dear little Harper Christina, just a little under two days old.
:: It's a much cooler day today — thank heavens. Only 31 (87.8 F) max, with 16 (60.8) overnight.
I feel re-charged already.
I'm seriously considering aestivating.
We walked the dog early this morning and found two more wonderful Italian houses, one of them on a corner with pumpkins and tomatoes rambling all over the front verge, in and out of the olive and fruit trees. And I mean rambling — there were lots of tomatoes, but the plants were just left to grow where they wanted, without stakes. And the front yard was entirely given over to vegetables, with a huge fig tree. Wonderful!
The plan for the rest of the day is:
• Baking a fruitcake to a very old recipe.
• Finishing off a tiny fitted bassinet sheet for you know who.
• Finishing off the papercut I started some time ago.
Have a great weekend.

Oh precious! I got to hold my sister's new grandson yesterday so I'm right up on the pleasures of new baby flesh. Could've happily stolen little Blake away! Love the name Harper Christina - gorgeous!

This makes me very happy.
I know she must wake and cry too, but her restful little face has already become a fixture in my mind.
