Needless to say, it’s been more than a couple of days since I wrote anything here. We flew to Austin, TX over the weekend to watch my niece get married. Such a beautiful event. The weather was a bit wet, but we managed. I was very glad to get back to drier air as the heat and humidity were very hard on my breathing.

My niece made a beautiful bride and her new husband is super nice. He treats her like a queen, which makes her family very happy!


We arrived at midnight–UGH–I’ll be going direct in the future, and in the daylight. This is the terminal there at Austin.


The first day, we met up with my nephew Kenneth and his wife, Amy, and my niece, Jeanette, and younger son, Richard. It seems Texans like their BBQ. I never saw so many BBQ and Mexican restaurants in one place in my life — well, except for the last time I was in Texas! That night, we went to “The Oasis” a restaurant by Lake Travis with an utterly breathtaking view. They had a custom there to clap when the sun set. No problem there…


The actual wedding was held at a place called Star Hill Ranch. It had a number of old houses that had been moved onto the property.

We stayed in Austin an extra day in order to take in the George W. Bush Library in College Station, TX.


The library had an exhibit called Leonardo Da Vinci’s Machines in Motion, one of the machines sits between the two pillars to the left of the entrance.


It’s always good to go places, but I think it’s even better to return to the comfort of your own home. Back into our routines… Be safe and please be happy. Tell those you love that you love them.

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons, a daughter-in-law, and two grandsons. My hobbies include creating art with fabric (quilting and sewing) and paper (cardmaking), reading, writing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in our G scale garden railroad), travel and volunteering. I owned a secretarial and desktop publishing business years ago and was a professional proofreader. I closed my business in 1999 when my husband retired, but I continue to enjoy proofreading and editing for e-authors. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    What a beautiful bride. Glad you enjoyed the wedding. Glad you enjoyed the library too. I want to go up the coast to Nixon’s and see the 707 there. Thanks for the great post.

      Thanks. We ran into a couple of situations in trying to get to various places, but once we reached Austin, the younger son took over and chauffeured us until he had to leave. Made it very nice… Traveling is a challenge, no matter how you do it.
