A Good Day In Texas

In 1985 I moved to Dallas, TX from Arkansas where I had lived for 30 years beginning a new life and career.  It was a turbulent time in my life, not one of my better times by any stretch of the imagination.  In the course of the the time I lived in Texas I moved from Dallas to Austin to Houston.  In 1992 I moved with an ex from Houston to Powell, WY and in a couple years after this move life changed for the better.  I have a few fond memories of times in Texas but not many—I am thinking this time in Texas will be a good time.

Michael finished organizing today and low and behold, we have an entire storage bay which is almost empty!!!  That’s unheard of!!  We didn’t bring the kayak this time which frees up a lot of space.  I spent the morning doing laundry (yep, even when you are on the road your clothes still get dirty) and getting a backing ready for the longarm. 

After lunch we made a trip to Lowe’s and came home looking like the Beverly Hillbillies again—we had gutters and eight foot long boards hanging out of the back of the jeep—should have taken a photo!  When we got home I drove back over to Wal Mart minus the boards and got some groceries.

Rollie came home early and we enjoyed a wonderful happy hour outside then dinner—grilled chicken, baked potatoes and fresh asparagus.  After Rollie headed home Michael and I took a leisurely walk around the park admiring the Christmas decorations and the full—ish moon.  

A good day in Texas but it sure was hot and humid for almost December!  We even ran the air conditioning today!!

  1. I love the snow picture! How beautiful! I know you are enjoying your new home, but that picture would make me homesick already---

  2. Life got carried away here and I didn't get to read blogs for a few days. Whewwwwwwwwww, you've been busy!! It looks like you have a great setup, and great neighbors. I hope Michael is feeling better soon. Have a happy weekend.

  3. It seems you're off to a great start this time in Texas so I'm sure it will go every bit as well as you hope.

  4. I believe you are headed for a really satisfying experience while in Texas.
