Here in Texas it's all about the Bluebonnets, the state flower. Along some roadways they grow in abundance and are very pretty.

Monday morning question

The Monday Morning Question from Sometimes I Think:

Where did you meet your spouse? If you are not married, where would you like to meet your spouse?

I love explaining how my husband and I met. Being new in town and living in a hotel for the first week I decided to go see the "Blues Band" at the bar my last night at the hotel. When I got to the front, there was my husband asking if I was old enough to go inside. So he got me in without having to pay the cover by telling them I was his wife (he was part of the band). Took 4 months before he proposed but I made him wait another 7 months before we got married.

Bluebonnet pictures

I got some! Bluebonnet pictures, that is! See?

I am so excited. I have waited at least all year to get up close and personal with a bluebonnet patch. Bluebonnets are the state flower for Texas and right now can be seen all along the highways. I drove about an hour from town but it was worth it. Also got some pictures of other flowers. Here are some more Bluebonnets.

Tuesday Two - Episode 22

THIS WEEK'S TOPIC from Patrick's Weekender: YOUR SPACE

What room of the house do you most consider to be entirely "your space" and what makes it so uniquely yours?


A co-worker wants to borrow your workspace while you're out of the office. The next day, you return to find your things out of place. Will that bother you at all, and will you say anything about it, or just quietly return things to "normal?"

Choose A or B, (indicate which question you're answering!) then either answer the question in a comment or answer it in your journal and include the link in a comment. (To be considered "first to play," a link must be to the specific entry in which you answered the question.)

Remember: choose one or the other...not both!

Since my answer to B would be the same as Patrick's, I'll answer A:

I have my own space in the house. When we first saw our house my husband showed me the crawl space over the garage which was also behind the closet in the master bedroom could be converted to office space. Within a few years it was completed. I love that it's away from the daily activity in the house.
