Moved back in…

To my apartment, me and the little girl.  She sniffed, slinked, and scurried around the place.  Meowing loudly, finally getting familiar with things.  She loves the new cat tree, got a real bargin at pet smart.  What I thought was 99 bucks, was on sale for 69 dollars.  Oh believe me, I spent money last night, between the cat and some food for myself, I almost wept, but it was necessary.

I now really look forward to coming home after a long days or nights work to see my kittie girl.  Now that she is mine and my responsibility.  Anyways, there are great responsibilities as a adult I have to do Monday, one of which, need to update my resume.  I am trying to stick with this job, for at least a year, not sure that will happen, as so much nonsense is going on there.  So that is that.

Last weekend, went to the free day at Zilker, went to the botanical garden.  Invited nephwe and sister who have never been, it was great fun.  Photos below.







Welp, until the next adventure, keep it fun.

Constant cravings…

Well today anyway.  Today the weather is cloudy, rainy, humid and calm.  Yes, it is a pretty quiet Saturday.  You know the kind that makes it feel as though it is not even a Saturday.  So the rents and I took a little trip to Brady, TX.  Just to get some barbecue.  Sure there are tons of bbq places in austin, heck I really do need to get some, and do a comparison.  Anyway,  the ride was great and the bbq sandwhich was delicious.

If you happen to stop in Brady, Texas this place will not dissapoint.

Worth it.

So I got a new phone about a week ago.  Seeing as my phone was about to bite the big one, it has been in a death spiral for a couple of years now.  So it was finally time to do it.  I got the same kind of phone my mom has, and she loves hers; and as I have observed as well as shot photos from her phone, I knew I wanted one as well.  What phone you say waiting patiently to hear.  I got the Note 5.  I do say it is incredible.  I love being able to share my photos and videos between the phones just by touching the phones together, super cool.  The photos come out super clean, and clear.  Front facing camera is so amazing as well.  Totally loving this phone.  No more headaches from fighting with lag and freeze time.  Definitely one less thing to think about.

So went down to marble falls today, nice ride, fed the geese and ducks; very relaxing.  My mom and I were heading over to see if we could see if the dams were still letting water out, as they were yesterday.  Only got a photo with regular camera, and it was not that great quality.   But there was none today, so went to feed ducks and geese at the falls.  Here are a couple of photos I got.   Today has been an awesome day.

Caught up in the rain

So today I decided to go bus hopping, I already had in mind where I was headed.  The thing is, I left the house sans umbrella, knowing the possibilities the skies would open up with rain.  Nice move on my part.  To which they eventually did and I got a little wet.  Of course before that happened, I did get to snap off a couple of phone pics to my destination.  In all, I did accomplish that.  Here are a couple of photos from The Hope Outdoor Gallery.

I had also planned on going to the Brodie Oaks shopping plaza,but the rain put that plan to a stop.  Another time,another time.  Though the entire day was not a loss.  Looking forward to visiting graphfitti park again.

The One that got away…

So as the story goes,  sitting on the pond at lake Marble falls, not doing any fishing, just photographing things.  My mom hooked a big un’.  Well I have no photo to show, only because, it snapped her line, and got away.  Aww, but it was a huge one indeed.  She was using a piece of slim Jim as her bait.  I do think it was a bass, it was really big, and it really set the tone for her day, because she did not catch another big fish for the rest of the afternoon.  But that did not stop my dad from catching a nice haul, he caught a medium fish, then some smaller ones.  It was a perfect day for him, but in all it was a pretty good day out on the pond for all.  Here are some of the photos I took.

 

Here’s to having fun, good family, and fine fishing.  See you on the lake side of life.
