Variety is the Spice of Life

Variety is the Spice of Life

The past week has included progress in so many different ways.

Friday we met with Solluna Builders and discussed green ways to dismantle the existing buildings and make use of as much as possible of what is there. We are thrilled that we have a few good options. (We also love the irony that the green way is actually significantly cheaper than sending it all to the landfill!!!)

Saturday brought the opportunity to visit two different wedding shows and The Cedars team of Brenda Ryan and Bill and Marilyn networked, sampled cake and gathered information on many vendors connected to the wedding industry. It was the beginning of some great relationships, for sure. The warmth and receptiveness of other venues to us was beyond what we could have hoped for! We really like our competition so far :)

It wasn’t all hard work - we took time for our own photo-booth fun - check it out!


The number of vendors that we met and saw was mind-boggling. One of the trends that surprised (and delighted) us was the move away from just the traditional wedding cake. Anything goes and creativity reigns apparently. We couldn’t resist capturing a couple unique ones.

This week extended our networking focus with a great visit to the Wimberley Chamber of Commerce and discussions about getting signed up as members.

Beauty was added to our entrance by Brenda with the painting of our mailbox and the addition of The Cedars logo and name. We were grateful for Jean Robinson’s visit and suggestions for both our garden and on how to reduce our fire ant population (and keep Bill safer)!

It has also been a week of tweaking the schematics and visioning how others will experience the land. It is such a great activity to practice stepping back and thinking about how others will see things that you have looked at a thousand times. (Such a great principle for communication.)

Our garden is coming along - our snow pea plants are coming right along and, surprisingly we already have some asparagus shoots coming up. We are trying to wait a little so we have more than 3 skinny stalks each, lol. We are hoping by Friday to be able to be eating some for dinner!

Thanks for joining us on this adventure. If you have experience dealing successfully with fire ants, we would sure love to hear from you!

Until next week,

Bill and Marilyn The Cedars Ranch

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
as though you relied on the video to make your point. You
obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos
to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Hey there would you mind letting me know which webhost you're using?
I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and
I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a honest price?

Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and
was wondering what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog
like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks
