West Texas

Tuesday, August 4, 2009

There are a million blog posts that I heartily wish I had completed before I jetted off once to the wilds of my home, West Texas, for the most blissful, wonderful week of the year. It's a family reunion of sorts that I PROMISE I will expound upon later, but for now, all I have is a few minutes to throw together a collection of pictures hinting at my week away from San Jose.

The most scenic drive imaginable-my dad and I heading out in the mule to turn on a generator.

The cleanest, coldest, most delicious water in the world, pumped straight up through the hard-packed Texas dirt.

The object of my fascination. (you know, my amateur herpetology endeavors-have I really not written about that yet???)

The tastiest Mexican food in the charming city of Alpine, and our annual dinner spot every year.

The perfect first book (of hopefully several) that I'll luxuriously page through this week. It's SO good-I love Anne Elliot!

While I look forward to returning to my "normally scheduled programming", this week is eagerly anticipated every year, and I'm very happy to be home.

That first pic is great! I love the Big Bend area! I'm not so fond of the rattlesnake though.

Hi Katie, I'm Jason Newman's wife, Jamie, and I just stumbled onto your blog. Glad that I found you and it was so nice to see you at Campmeeting.
