Saturday Christi and I visited Round Top Festival Institute to see if it would be the perfect place to have her wedding. Most of you are familiar with this unique place since I blog about it quite often.
Winter is not the best time for taking pictures of the Edythe Bates Chapel (1883)
The small chapel is amazing inside with gorgeous stained glass windows.
Seating capacity is only 160 so that might be a problem.
The grounds are spectacular offering various settings. Attached to the other Chapel is the Texas
Mediterranean Herzstein Stone Chapel and Memorial Plaza where you could have a
I persuaded Christi to pose in front of the stone chapel.
Christi and Paul will be visiting several other places mostly in the Austin area for their special day. What a big decision but I know they will pick the perfect location!
So many decisions in the future for these two love birds to make for their day. Just hope you guys don't get tired of my talking about it for months. lol
I wanted to share with you what my grandson Bailey gave me for Christmas. As early as Thanksgiving Bailey was giving me hints as to what he had bought for me. Christmas Day he could not wait to see my reaction to my gift. What a surprise to find a ceramic bust of Elvis! I love it and have it on my book shelf in the sitting area of my bedroom. I thought here I could look at it every day and smile.
He told me that they had went to a garage sale and when he saw this he knew it was for his Grandma Yellow Hair. Special to me knowing he picked it out and paid for it himself.
Should I unpack my other Elvis mementos or just let this one shine all by itself?
Thank you Bailey for such a thoughtful gift!
Tomorrow I am having my vein surgery. It is the VNUS Closure procedure. It is I hope a minimally invasive surgery. Endovenous thermal ablation is performed using local anesthesia along the course of the diseased vein.
I decided to just have one leg operated on tomorrow since I am a little nervous about having this done.
If I don't jump off the table and knock the doctor down while racing out the door I will consider having the other leg done in the near future.
They gave me the option of having a Valium before the procedure and like a dummy I told the doctor I would not need it. Then after talking to family and friends I was persuaded to call them today and order the Valium. Past experiences with this drug made me turn it down but hopefully taking it this time will not be a bad experience.
Well how many days until Spring? We are now under a winter weather alert. They are saying we might have snow and sleet on Friday. So glad my surgery is Thursday.
Snow and sleet for us is a big deal. I just pray the weather men don't know what their talking about. I have plenty of Diet Dr. Pepper so I should be okay. I took Julia's advice and spent days hanging plastic sheeting on my windows. I did a bad job hanging it but it's up and I will soon know if it makes a difference. I am sure it will and I appreciate all of your good advice for making my living conditions out here better.
Well I need to close and drink some water and get these old legs ready for in the morning.
Hope your staying warm and well during these winter storms.
Thank you for coming by and saying hello.
Love to All
