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.
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.
Here’s to having a awesome 4th!. Yesterday I set out to get out of the apartment. Went downtown, and took some photos. Today, I rest, a little trip to the falls, to feed the ducks. Hope your 4th is a great day.
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.
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.
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.
Gone fishing today… well my mom and dad are doing the fishing, I am just photographing the sights. It is an overcast kind of day, makes for some good fishing. Have a great day.
See you on the lake side. 🙂
Yesterday me, mom, and dad went on a little day trip. To Marble Falls. Which is a gem of a place, it was beautiful and peaceful. This place had good fishing spots, something we have been looking for since moving here, now we found it. It is about nine miles out of Burnett Texas. There are fishing places in Austin,but this place is gorgeous. I love day tripping, and always have fun when with my mom and dad that way. But that is a story for another day. Today is a day of photos from my day trip to Marble Falls. Enjoy.
Another thing I saw on our way to marble falls, was in Burnett Texas, they have an air museum. They are also having an air show in September, and I am hoping that I can attend that. Too Soon to tell,but keeping fingers crossed, since I have a thing about air shows, and have missed them for so many years. It would be good to get to one. Another story for another day my friends.
With my mom, this would be her first trip to an Austin museum, so I took her to The Blanton Museum downtown. She loved it, now she can’t wait to go to more museums. One of the things I love about having my mom living here in this city, is that there are more things to do with her, more food to eat, more places to see, and more things to do, yes, I love this city.
Today, I helped my mom take down here Christmas tree, sure, you are probably thinking that this should have been done a few weeks ago, well you are probably right, as would my mom be, but I convinced her to keep it up a few more weeks, but today was here point were she wanted it down, so it came down and got packed up for another year.
So then as the day went on, got together with my friend, and we took a trip out to Mayfield park, I had never been there, and for me, it was another adventure in Austin. Here are a couple of photos that I took, the view was amazing to me, I would say it was peaceful, but that would be crazy, it was full of peacocks, and peacocks are loud, beautiful; but loud. I still had a blast going to this park.
We were going to go to Mount Bonnel, but it was so crowded trying to find parking, think we will have to choose another day to hit that spot, from what little I’ve seen riding up that way, it will be a most awesome trip. So I hope you enjoy these photos, because I had a great day today.
