Hubby and I spent some time in Dripping Springs with Mabel.
We have her pretty much ready, we just hook up and hit the trail. We stayed at a very rinky-dink trailer park, visited a winery, bought steaks and salmon to cook on the campstove, and just generally chilled. It was fab. On the way home we stopped here for live jazz, brunch, and $2.50 bloody mary's. Lots of food all weekend!
I'm not cross stitching as much lately as I would like to. But I will catch up.
I found some very cute decorated clothespins that I will use to mount my creations with. I have a lot of scrap wood in the garage that will be put to good use, too. Stay tuned.
It's just not Fall without mums. I found some $4 ones at Wal-Mart and put them into terracotta pots at the front door. I didn't add dirt, didn't put moss around the edges, just PLOP. Done. They seem to be thriving!
A long overdue carpet cleaning and repair in our bedroom led to this mess, as I had to empty the room of furniture. Some it migrated to the front room, too:
However, I did get all of the drawers purged and reorganized, and all of it got cleaned. Plus, I decided I could live without the giant twin mirrors on my dresser. It makes the room look less cluttered and slightly bigger.
Hubby and I saw The Martian at Alamo Drafthouse to cap off our weekend of fun. We had 512 Pecan Porter on tap, and a couple of small pizzas. Mine had carmelized onions and mushrooms...YUM. Then on Monday night we went to Perry's Steak House for the best pork chop I have ever had. Ever. And now, dear readers, it's time for me to DIET. I also have to get walking as Turkey Trot is just a few weeks away...
