Wet and wild in Texas

Wet and wild in Texas

When it rains, it pours. That’s the way it has been going in Texas this year. Poor Austin. They can’t catch a break in the Hill Country. A relentless drought plagued them for at least five years. When it finally rained, earlier this year, they got epic flooding of Houstonian proportions. We’re used to that […]

Clute, TX

I have been on a pursuit for a few years now to find the best kolache in Texas. This is not an original pursuit, but it is, I think, a noble one. If you don’t know what  a kolache (ko-lah-chee) is (which means you probably don’t live in Texas), then ask your friend Google. I can tell […]

Navasota, TX

This year I made a lofty declaration that I didn’t want to go anywhere. No trips. None. I’m a staycatin’ this year. Takin’ a break from the road. The queen took her a little ol’ trip to the Texas Hill Country earlier this year, but other than that, we ain’t been nowhere. Just staying home and staying […]

Seguin, TX

Last year after we went to see Emmylou in Gruene we took a bit of a detour and stopped in Seguin, TX because the queen had a knit shop she wanted to check out there. Turns out it was more of a small craft store with a few knitty type things. Gruene, pronounced ‘green’, rhymes […]

Luling Watermelon Tower

I HEART water towers. I HATE water towers. Angel – Devil. Hot – Cold. Peas – Carrots. Upside down pineapple cake. Most communities view their water towers as functional entities without need for decoration or extra om-pa-pa. C’mon, y’all! All y’all! Every water tower needs some om-pa-pa. But noooooooooooo. Most water towers are vertical testimonials […]

Emmylou plays Gruene

The Gargantuan Epic Eastern Road Trip of 2012 was over, and we were spent. We slugged around for a couple weeks but then had to hit the road again to go see Emmylou play at Gruene Hall. No, you do not pronounce it “groan” or “groany”. It’s “green”. I wouldn’t want you to em-barrass yerself […]

Self Portrait Friday

A day late, but I have a good excuse. We went to see Emmylou Harris at Gruene Hall last night. Self portrait doesn’t necessarily mean a face has to be involved. That’s my hand. It’s worthy. Hands are worthy, especially when they’re holding a glass of wine. This was taken at Driftwood winery in Dripping […]

Sunday in Houston: Revival Market

Breaking from the Epic Eastern Journey of 2012 to talk about Houston, because who else is going to talk about Houston? We get no respect. EVEN THOUGH half the country is moving here because, ca-ching – jobs. I’ve even seen people from Indiana here (according to the license plate). It is my understanding Indianians don’t […]

Self Portrait Friday

It’s been a while since I posted a Self Portrait Friday entry. I’m posting one picture from now one. There’s only so much narcissism one can unleash on the world without melting under one’s pointy witch hat. I snapped this at The Get Go, a little specialty grocery store across from our nightly apartment rental […]

Yarnorama

Before I get started on The Great East Coast to Midwest Adventure of Thelma and Louise, we took a day trip to Paige, TX last month to visit one of the queen’s favorite yarn stores, Yarnorama. And an ‘orama’ it is. A veritable cornucopia of all things yarnish – from spinning to knitting to bunnies. […]
