Finally, a short window of time to myself so I can start processing my photos and share a few of my adventures.
It all started with a very last minute trip to my home state of North Carolina. My family is there, and on a whim, my husband and I decided to drive the 1100 miles (one way) from Texas to pick up my two nieces and then drive them back, another 1100 miles. We had never done anything like this but it was a chance we couldn’t pass up.
I suspect the main draw for my nieces to visit us was our pool. As soon as they clamped eyes on what I call our lagoon, it was LOVE!
The girls were with us for almost two weeks and spent a good fifty percent of that time in the pool. Who can blame them? We are in Texas!
Our house which is normally quiet was filled with kid talk and business, along with occasional dog barking. My younger dog isn’t visitor friendly so he was gated off. I was able to take the girls all around our area, including a weekend visit to a couple of local colleges, just in case one or both are interested in attending here in Texas.
On our drive to pick up and drop off my nieces we visited with my husband’s family. The weather in Tennessee was much cooler and pleasant, and I love seeing by bestie, Jay’s sister.
Her cat Pete isn’t thrilled. Can you tell? But she and my father-in-law are wonderful gardeners and hers is in full bloom. It’s almost harvest time.
And I found more butterflies to photograph. I do love it there!
I still haven’t downloaded all my pictures yet so in my next post: the return trip home – Memphis, TN and Little Rock, AR. And possibly other photos I’ve forgotten I took!
