Misty Morning ~ and An Announcement!

First, the formalities. We had another gorgeous misty-morning view of the valley and mountain today …

Now to the announcement –

Introducing the newest addition to my family! ❤ My eldest daughter gave birth to a 10lb. 3oz. baby boy on Tuesday morning, a baby brother to two-year-old Aurora. Baby is well, and his parents and big sister are absolutely besotted.

His name hasn’t been decided on yet, so he is currently known as “baby boy”. Only one name remains on the original list of possibles, but another name was added yesterday for consideration. Needless to say, I am totally in love with this gorgeous little man. ❤

Another hazy day … and more news

The smoky, hazy, dustiness is back today, blurring the mountain as the wind whips up a veritable dust-storm.

From down in the southern areas of New South Wales and across the western tablelands, we are hearing reports of snow, while in Sydney, the coldest day of the year was predicted.

Tonight was a special occasion when the whole family – all thirteen of us – had dinner at the home of my son and his fiancée. Four day old baby Eli had already met his cousin Aurora two days ago, and today he met his other cousin, Braxton. Meanwhile, proud Nana had her camera ready. All three of my grandchildren together!

And if you lean is closer I will whisper some very special news … we have another grandson on the way! How exciting is that? ❤

A baby brother for Braxton, who is to be promoted to Big-Brothersaurus status!
