One of the best things about having years and years of photos archived is that you can go back and look at things that you otherwise may have forgotten. The best part is sometime in 2008 they started getting sorted in date order. Now I can do things like this. Do you know what I […]

Check out what they found out by the hot tub today.  This is the first rattlesnake that we’ve ever seen in our yard. We’ve seen other types but never a rattler. Check out those fangs. Raul was the bravest of us all.  Like this:Like Loading…

We’ve waited a long time for crawfish to come back in season. Today Groomer’s Seafood had their first shipment of these delicious little crustaceans.  Of course we had to play with our food before we cooked it. Lily is the one who likes to purge them.

I watch the local weather like a hawk. Last year around this time a night freeze in San Antonio killed our beloved lime tree. Luckily both the orange tree and the grapefruit tree survived that frost. I am not taking anymore chances. Today I saw this and knew that I had to go put lights […]
