Wordless Wednesday...End of Summer... I live in an amazing place that is just plain gorgeous!  Canyon Lake, Texas is a resort community in the heart of the Hill Country.  I wake up every day and look at this lake!  AWESOME!  We went out on the boat to do one last wake board run at the end of September and this is what the lake looked like from the bow of the boat. If you ever find yourself wanting a second home on a beautiful lake in God's country...or you just need to relocate to Central Texas...Call me!  I will come in from wake boarding and show you around!

ANOTHER "TRASHY" HALLOWEEN IN THE BOOKS! I am a creative artsy fartsy type person and apparently I have raised my child to have a creative mind as well. He has, in general, never wanted to be something "typical" for Halloween...you know the kind of thing that you can run down to WalMart and buy a costume for. One year he wanted to be a crab.  Another year he wanted to be an astronaut.  This year...well...he wanted to be a trash can!  Yes, you read that right!  A trash can!  I was thinking, where in heaven's name will I find that costume???  I would find it on Google!  Yes, it's true!  Google isn't just good for getting good rankings for your AR blog, it is also a treasure trove of fabulous Halloween costume ideas including instructions on how to put it all together. So for $7.97 at WalM...

Wordless Wednesday...Friday Night Lights in Texas! I am a Texan and part of being a Texan is living for Friday Night Lights!  What is that those of you not from Texas ask?  It is the glow of the stadium lights throughout Texas on a Friday night during the fall football season.  You can always tell where the next town is by the glow of those lights! Well, this year it's Thursday Night and Friday Night Lights in Texas!  My son Jordan (#89) plays for the Mountain Valley Middle School Hawks and was team captain for the game against Wimberley.  He is pictured above going out to center field for the coin toss pregame.  Yeah, I am just a little bit proud and I love my football...nothing like wearing a hoodie with the mascot of your favorite team, eating frito pie, catching flying t-shirts tha...

All these connections lead to where you really want to go.                                                               ...

. Look who stopped by for breakfast this morning. Noltice the horns are in velvet. These are Texas Hill Country Deer over here at Canyon Lake. Notice we have green grass since the drought ended. Yhea!                                                   If you find yourself moving into the Canyon Lake area expect to have visitors. Look for native plants as the white tail deer love non-native plants.  If you are buying or building a home please remember to have a home inspection.   Tip: If the existing home has a septic system it is recommended to have the septic pumped before you  purchase.
