So It's Been a while . . . .

I know, I know . . . . .

If I'm not mistaken, this is the longest I've gone without a post all year. The weather's been fantastic, the kids are great, work's OK, and I'm going to be fine.

No, I haven't gone back to you know who. I'm just feeling very, very ordinary, and not like I have anything to say you'd be interested in.

So - to remedy that, I'm going to take the advice of a wise blogger and just sit down and write. When I first started this blog, I was worried that I wouldn't have anything to say that anyone would care about. Whether or not that's true, I haven't seemed to have much trouble filling these pages.

I thought maybe a few photos might be in order. (As always, you may click to enlarge)

This evening, after work, I harvested the first two tomatoes out of my garden. Two tiny little yellow pear tomatoes. By the time you read this, they will have been eaten.

This past weekend, I worked late Friday, and I worked until 5:00 Saturday, then, I picked up the kiddos, and we went to the bay house. We took the boys tubing, we ate fresh dewberries, and played 42. We didn't come home until Sunday evening. Here is a shot of the dewberries.

Dylan had a good time tubing, you can see he got some sun.

This one of me was taken on Flo's last night in town, we had a little going away dinner. This was April 4th, and yes I look OLD!!!

Speaking of Flo, remember when I went to Austin a few weeks ago? (All of the rest of these were taken March 29th. ) Here are some shots of Flo on 6th street.

Flo meets Leslie, an Austin tradition, Lisa looks on.

Flo loves the ladies, and the ladies love Flo, I think it's the accent.

Dylan enjoyed the actress at Esther's Follies.

The gang, stopped in Luling for a bathroom break.

Before we left I took this shot in David and Lisa's backyard. This is called an Orchid tree.

A close up. (Yes, this was a month ago, these blooms are all gone)

Really it's only been awhile so you could leave Cat at the top of the blog for me.

And your orchid tree- I want it.

Those toe-mah-toes look divine! Are they good on pizza or are they more of a salad tomato?

And is that a UT shirt I spy? Hook 'em!

Beautiful photos of the Orchird tree :-)

Red Queen -

I'll find a spot for Cat.

The tree? Not mine. I had a small one waiting to be transplanted but it froze in its pot a couple of years ago.


Pido!! - You bought a Passat? That's my dream car.

Plane Ride -

They are actually good for either! They are like a sweet cherry tomato. In practice however, I eat almost all of them raw.

Yes, a UT shirt. We are a Pro-Longhorn household.

Yes, that tree is awesome. There are actually a ton of them around town. I wish they bloomed year round.

It's always nice to get a pictorial update.

P.S. I don't think you look that old!

Brave Sir Robin said...

Bee - you are far too kind.

But thank you!!

I see you met Leslie

Robin said...

I have never had dewberries before. What do they taste like?

Brave Sir Robin said...

Dewberries are very, very like blackberries.
