Just Texas in March 2023
Don and I didn't leave the state in March.
We did make it about 4 hours from home, though. We spotted a few bluebonnets along the side of the road.
In the good old Texas Hill Country, we saw some redbud trees and some bluebonnets.
We were actually a week too early for a real bluebonnet display. But the drive was nice!
We made it to the cabin for a couple days. These photos are actually from February, when we discovered a broken pipe and had to wipe up the mess with beach towels.
This time we met the plumber and all was fine. Except for that darn palm tree that was suffering after the same freeze, that did a number on our pipes.
Weather was perfect!
The temps were in the low eighties.
By the second night the temps dropped to the 30's and we got to have a fire. Best of both worlds!
It's nice to take our time driving to and from the cabin. I talked Don into a silly detour, so I could lay my eyes on Oatmeal, Texas.
I had hoped to eat some oatmeal in the town. But there's not much left besides the tall "can" and the windmill.
Back in Sugar Land, I had a good reunion with my childhood friend.
Diane lives on the east coast, but was in town for work. Don made us Mexican martinis and we had Texas BBQ.
Then & Now
Diane and I had a lot of fun as kids in Iowa, trick or treating and riding bikes. Sadly, our only photo as kids together, is one with Diane's head covered.
Since Diane moved away after third grade, we've managed a few adult reunions. We always make sure to get some photos. This reunion involved a visit to Houston's Funeral Museum.
The museum is actually amazing and not a bit creepy. We wandered and talked and learned little and had some fun.
I posed on a designated "selfie spot" posing circle... with colorful caskets from Ghana.
Diane removed a "Do Not Touch" sign from an exhibit that celebrated famous animal actors... who have died. The retro TV & TV tray scene, was right out of our childhood. Diane did not touch the exhibit, I promise!
Pearls and Bowtie
You know it was a quiet month, when I have time to spotlight our evening of TV. We watched the Academy Awards with French 75 cocktails and popcorn.
We dressed for the event. (pajama bottoms out of view) and we texted with the kids, since we had all voted on winners. I tied for last place. But we made it through he whole award night without nodding off!
And That's It!
So I'll end this simple post of March with more flowers.
Yep, there's my bear again. A simple month with time to take photos of that Little Bear!
