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
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
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
