We took a short road trip yesterday and today, here are some pictures to prove it! Belton and San Saba, TX:
And especially Houston, apparently! Here are a couple of articles I recently read on Texas Monthly’s site:
Houston’s Very Own “Bean” and Houston High Schooler Accepted to TWENTY Top Schools. (How cool is that guy? Amazing!! I bet his parents are proud!)
And hey, when in Texas, do as the Texans do: Top 50 Texas BBQ Joints (according to Texas Monthly, anyway.) ENJOY!
It gets away quickly when you’re not paying attention, doesn’t it?
It’s been a dismal start to the year so far, but I have HIGH hopes for the rest of it…beginning tomorrow. Why? Because it’s Chinese New Year, signifying the beginning of the Year of the Horse. Guess what I am? Yep…..a Horse. 🙂
Not everything I’ve read has agreed that Horses tend to have a good year in the Year of the Horse, but more often than not they fare better than in many non-Horse years. Hopeful, right?
So far, I’ve managed to NOT keep ANY of my New Year’s resolutions. My excuse is that tomorrow actually signals MY “new year,” and so I will become accountable beginning then. Hey – that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
How about you? New Year’s resolutions trashed or on track? How has the first month of 2014 treated you? What hopes do you have for the rest of the year?
You know what happy people do?
They sing in the rain. They smile in the face of adversity. They pick themselves up after a fall. They see the glass as half full, representing hope instead of the half emptiness of despair. They laugh. They make jokes during stressful moments. They pursue hobbies. They love.
I’m learning. Every single day. A new world awaits!
