Wildflowers are blooming like it's springtime instead of autumn. Plants I thought had died are sprouting blossoms again.
Maybe it's like this every year, and I just forget. That's okay. I love the surprise of it!
Waller Creek runs through Austin down to Lady Bird Lake. Near downtown, it's dirty, stinky, and can be dangerous during flash floods.
Thank goodness there are people working to change that. A representative of the Waller Creek Conservancy spoke at our office meeting last week, describing the tunnel which will control flooding problems, as well as the walks and green spaces planned that will help Austinites and visitors enjoy the creek.
I can't wait to see the finished product!
If you're planning to sell your home, here's a tip: make sure all of the toilets have seats. You're welcome.
I'm still bringing my camera to work, using it to take business portraits of fellow agents for their business cards. It's a great way to get to know my colleagues. Photography can be a useful addiction!
I grew up in Pasadena, Texas, and spent a lot of Saturday nights at Gilley's, but for some reason I never sat my bottom on that mechanical bull Debra Winger made famous in "Urban Cowboy".
So of course I had to change that by climbing on the one in The Trophy Club Wednesday night for a photo with my friend who was in town for the City Government Convention.
We just wanted our picture taken, but the operator started moving the bull a little bit, setting us to giggling.
Now I can say I rode a mechanical bull without being thrown off! Yay!
