Weather Weirdness

So today was a gorgeous day. High around 66. I wore a t-shirt and sandals to the park. And while I was there, the phone rang. It was my sister in Dallas, calling to tell me it was snowing there. We haven’t yet had snow this year. Very odd.

A $3 Mistake

I just got back from dropping my sister off at the airport. It was wonderful to have her here for the holiday weekend and she was delighted to get to play with her niece. Sadly, I didn’t have good timing today and Bella was just getting hungry as we were rushing into the car to […]

The Houston Trip: A Peaceful Day

Friday was a day of rest and recuperation after Thursday’s tiring travel. Though with Bella it is impossible to truly sleep in, we did take a nap after breakfast and then accompany Stephanie during her later breakfast. Then we messed about in the room and didn;t actually leave the hotel until after noon. We called […]
