- The View from Wimberley

Today marks one month since Don and I arrived in Wimberley, Texas.  The boxes are (mostly) unpacked, the pictures are (mostly) hung, and reality is starting to sink in ... we're here to stay for awhile.

It's hot and dry in a record-setting, not-since-the-1950s sorta way.  There have been more than 60 days of triple-digit heat this summer ... fortunately we've only been here for half of them.  Besides, the air is dry and the wind is usually blowing, which helps.  We've also learned that getting things done in the morning before the heat of the day is a pretty good idea.

In my favorite picture so far, this roadrunner made an appearance on one of the backroads a few miles from our house. 

Update: In 2010 we moved just outside Wimberley to a five-acre homestead in Summer Mountain Ranch. We still love roadrunners, but now we just have to drive through the neighborhood to see them. Life is good.
