Huge Highs and a Scary Low

Huge Highs and a Scary Low

Well, this week has been emotional, to say the least!


Walking through the schematics with Acre was incredibly exciting! We have to keep you in suspense, of course, but suffice it to say that this is going to be amazing!!! The Cedars will bring together the beauty of Texas, a few Canadian touches and a wonderful blend of rustic, modern and green, eco-friendly construction and design.


The layout and design fosters wellness, celebration, anticipation, relaxation, and lots and lots of fun. We love it and can’t wait for you to come and visit!

The topographical survey was completed in early January. It was rewarding for us to see approximately 400 “significant” hardwood trees identified and tagged.  We thought we had a lot of beautiful Live Oaks and Cedars but great to have it confirmed.



Although we have technically owned all 20 acres since early November we have been waiting on the previous owner to finish moving out. The land has not felt like it’s totally ours until this week. In fact, not until January 11 were her cats and a last couple of items removed.


It is always a treat for us to bring friends and family to The Cedars. This week we were able to take our niece Whitney and her boyfriend Kris out. They were a huge help with clean-up and beautifying our temporary structures.



It feels so wonderful to finally be able to clean up and start to claim this as our own. We are very grateful (again) to “Agent Bill” for all his hard work getting an old 5th wheel camper and a number of old appliances off of the land in the best ways possible - making someone happy for the donation and making use of as much metal as possible out of the old appliances.




It is amazing and wonderful to us, being fairly new to Texas, that we can garden this time of year. A few weeks ago we were able to plant peas and snow peas. There has been joy in watching the growth of our little garden, can’t wait to get more planted. Our little plants are about 2 inches tall already.




The scary low for the week was discovering that Bill is extremely allergic to fire ant venom. He went in to anaphylactic shock after getting 4 bites on his neck on Sunday afternoon. We learned that the medical clinic and the pharmacies are not open in Wimberley on Sunday afternoons but were grateful that a drive to the San Marcos Emergency room was only another 20 minutes. Speedy intervention and getting a prescription filled for epi-pens allowed for a happy ending to the day.


Grateful and Excited,


Bill and Marilyn

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of
plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it seems
a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd certainly appreciate it.

Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?

I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but
I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems
different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
