Picked the final apples from the tree - I believe these are Liberty. Most are quite nice, except for the woodpecker damage on one of them! I waited a bit too long - there were more, but they had begun to drop, and the deer just stand under the tree and wait for them!
I made a new baby gift for my renters. I saw phtots of this cute star baby blanket, and tracked down a pattern to make my own from cozy fleece, which also doesn't fray and is nice and stretchy. The front has overlapping parts, so there isn't any closure needed - should be easy to get the kid in there. There's even a little hood to pull over the head, and you can use it in a car seat. Seems pretty handy, so I hope they like it!
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
