Sunflowers from a best friend
Painting pottery with my mom and nieces–I was going for the mosaic look.
A delivery of Edible Arrangements on my birthday
A cookie cake…
…and Texas BBQ.
I more or less stopped eating BBQ outside of TX. When I say BBQ I mean beef. Not pork. Not chicken. Beef. This Spring I did try to give up beef completely…a year after reading this article. Call it ignorant, but I decided I would eat beef when in TX because, surely, it’s all local, right??
When all is said and done, trying not to gain weight when I go home is like trying not to breathe oxygen, something I don’t attempt.
In the end, all of these items relaxed me in some form or fashion up until the day I left.
