The big fireplace at the farm no longer annoys me.
I'm not sure why as we've done nothing to it, but suddenly the space no longer makes me grit my teeth.
I'm relieved and I'm sure Bruce will be relieved. That's not to say I don't want a different mantel someday but for now I am ok with how it looks.
We had lots and lots of rain last week. The driveway is washed out in areas and Bruce will need to drag the dirt back up the hill.
The pond filled up:
And the creek is running.
I know in a short time both will dry up but for now I'm enjoying it. The dogs love it too.
They are predicting temperatures in the 90's the early part of this week followed by a cool down into the 60's. Good old Texas weather.
They always say if you don't like the weather here just give it a day or two and it'll change. That's especially true during our Spring and Fall.
We took Bruce's mom to Tyler on Saturday and drove the Azalea trail. They are just starting to bloom. I saw a couple of yards that are going to be breath-taking in a couple of weeks...I have yard envy.
Some yards had lots of tulips blooming:
Then we spent a hour or so wandering through an antique/collectibles mall. I found this sweet fox:
He's waiting to take up residence in the art studio..I can just see him with a paint brush.
At the end of the day, the sun finally broke through the clouds. It made for a spectacular sunset.
Hope you have a great week!
