Baptism by Fire (well, actually, Water!)

Baptism by Fire (well, actually, Water!)

Remember last week we moved our future temporary home onto our land? Well, it was baptism by fire, well, actually, water!


Last Tuesday, Bill and I thought it would be a great night to spend our first night in the RV. So, we packed a few things and arrived and quickly realized that beyond a nice bottle of red wine, we didn’t have much for food. After a trip to the local grocery store (HEB in Wimberley for you Texans) we had delightful hors d’oeuvres, said red wine and a relaxing evening.

We discovered that the antenna on the roof results in us getting numerous tv channels and watched a talk show on gun violence in America. Looking back, not the best night-time viewing.

Around 10pm as we were about to nod off, the power went out. You know, it’s very dark in the country with the power off! With our cell phones just starting to charge for the night, neither of us wanted to brave the dark to see if this might be a local power issue.

So, trying to be comfortable in a very dark new place we are just finally heading off to sleep when the thunder and lightening start. It is loud, bright and extra loud because our window is open as we have no AC now!

Bill seems to find this storm and dark soothing enough that he is fast asleep. I, on the other hand, am hearing lots of noises - from the wind, likely from our mystery critter who is eating our peaches and, of course, Bill snoring.

So, after hours of little sleep the wind picks up and the whole RV is shaking. Shaking enough to wake Bill (or maybe I did that, lol). I was curious where we were going to wake up, curious what part of Kansas perhaps!

Come morning the sun was out and the place looked so peaceful and calm. The RV had not moved at all off of its stabilizers. The birds were singing, flowers still looking lovely and garden happy for the drink.

This weekend, (happy to be in Wimberley and not Kansas!) we attended the annual Wimberley Garden Tour. The Wimberley Garden Club ( run this event each year, touring beautiful gardens in the Wimberley Valley region. Here's some photos from the tour ...

Back on the ranch, we had a colorful new visitor in the garden ...

... and we're just loving all the new cacti growth.


Wishing you all a happy and safe week.

Until next week,

Bill & Marilyn.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message
home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog.
A great read. I'll certainly be back.
