My Yesterday in Pictures Format

I’ve simply built my daily walking & painting up to the point where I need the time for these two vital parts of keeping me healthy and/or sane, lol!

My Day Ahead series posts will continue, but on a much more intermittent basis. Already it seems some of that series’ usefulness is being incorporated into this new series’ format, me yakking ‘bout what when on, on the yesterday part of my life anyway, lol! It’s a continuing experiment of course, so we’ll see 😊

Christmas Lights in Houston Neighborhood 💥

We didn’t arrive to Houston til after dark so my oldest girl took us on a brief but beautiful tour of a nearby neighborhood’s Christmas array of lights 😊

Drivers were amazingly courteous and patient. We all wanted to see and just peacefully enjoy the display of lights and decorations —

Part of the beauty I think was the wonderful backdrop of trees all around, something about the parts of Houston I grew up around I often forget about after all these years in Austin.

I thought the Santa on the small terrace was a nice touch 😊

This is a short 12 second video as we circled the cul-de-sac for the round trip 😊

Saturday in Houston

New neighborhoods continue to sprout up in Houston the way high rises continue to, well, high rise, lol 😂 in Austin. Over congestion of either sort isn’t particularly good, but I really kinda prefer the neighborhoods. Texas cities, the big ones at least, seem to want to emulate the metro experiences of New York and Paris and such, but really, here in Texas, where one has to drive or pay a fortune for the convenience of a ride share? As my oldest granddaughter, who loves Austin (born & raised) says, “Why can’t I be able to just walk to a small shop and buy a baguette for a dollar?” (ala Paris or NY) Good question 😊

And finally, the reason for my trip to Houston, and where we spent the bulk of the day, visiting w/my mom. She’s been in the hospital w/pneumonia for almost a week, but is spunky and getting much better 💕

Here’s hoping everyone stays healthy! Am hoping to pick up my walking routine again today after in-the-car drives & sitting-visits last two days. But all very much worthwhile; very grateful I had such great company back & forth and of course in my old but sprawling-like-new hometown 😊

Thanks everyone!

    • Ahhhahaha, yes! My oldest girl really wanted to show up this particular neighborhood near her house, what a treat! 😊 The whole next day we visited w/my mom at the hospital, it was a really good visit, thank you, Tiffany ❤️
