As a present to ourselves, Ronak and I bought a handmade, cedar bed and an eco-friendly mattress. This gift was long overdue. And the order was a month overdue. We had ordered it the Monday before Thanksgiving and were told it would take 3 weeks. Afte… more »
We had some cold days in December, but then, as occurred in many part of the country, we warmed up. We had some delightful days in the 70s, while New York enjoyed balmy 50s. On those days, I spent as much time outside as I could, which might explain m… more »
Along the shore of Lake Marble Falls, "The Walkway of Lights" took on an aquatic turn. Dolphins leapt in the air. And Santa and his reindeer took turns water skiing. It's only right that they all take a break after working so hard… more »
Marble Falls had a walking tour of light sculptures along Lake Marble Falls, called "The Walkway of Lights." It's free, but donations are welcome. Everything is done by volunteers, including manning the exhibits until 10 pm each night, despite cold te… more »

Ronak and I had our first Texas Christmas in 2007. It was small but filled with spirit. Christmas Eve, we read The Best Christmas Pageant Ever out loud. I've enjoyed that book since I was a kid, but it had been a long time since I'd read it. And Ronak… more »
We attended the Sustainable Shopper's Ball at Sunset Valley Farmer's Market on December 1, 2007 - which just shows how far behind I've gotten on blogging. Our visit served two purposes: 1) we took photographs of organic vegetables for Brian's graphic… more »

(You know, the usual parental concerns.)
