This weekend chilly weather hit Central Texas; thank God. It was nice to don long sleeved shirts and jackets and not have to run the air conditioner.
We’re in the final throes of working on the proof of our new novel The Iris Covenant due to be released late this year or early next year.
Last month we had our dining room and office painted as well as the front door refinished. With that we’ve had every room in the house repainted since we moved in. We also bought a round granite top table dinette set for the breakfast nook. It’s a much better fit for the room than our old dinette set.
Next now that the weather is cooler, we’re having the exterior brick power washed and trim repainted as the house is 13 years old. Nothing like being a happy home owner.
Our sons and families are well. We’re happy that both sons are gainfully employed considering the state of the economy.
Since our last blog, we saw three movies that were noteworthy – Trouble with the Curve (Clint Eastwood’s movie was much better than we expected), Won’t Back Down (A good story of a mother and a teacher overcoming odds to save a failing school in Pittsburgh) and Taken 2 (Liam Neeson in an exciting follow up thriller to the original).
Last Friday drove 100 miles to the Round Top, TX area to an antique and flea market spread along four miles of rural highway. Although it was hot and dusty, the experience was enjoyable and we found a bargain for our effort.
We’re looking forward to the cooler weather and the upcoming holidays.
