Texas is hot.  And I know I said, repeatedly, last winter that I would not complain about the heat when it arrived.  So I’m not.  Complaining that is.  I’m simply stating a fact in an exasperated voice while sweating and squishing fire ants with my index finger. It. Is. Hot. I put off walking until…

A sweltering day in front of me, I knew getting out early would be in my best interest.  Even though it was before 8:00 a.m. I still spent 15 minutes wandering around the yard trying to get my camera lens to un-fog itself.  It is ‘un-fog’ or de-fog’?  One of the great mysteries of life…

Here is what I saw. Roadside nettles are always pretty! Morning sunlight thru the trees and on some pinecones…. At…

Wicked Walk 7/8/2015

I have a confession to make.  I did not walk on July the 8th.  I spent 4 hours doing laundry at the neighbors because our sewer backed up into the kitchen which translates loosely to bad smells and no using the washing machine, dish washer, sinks, toilets or showers.  Ugh.  Add this to me being…
