Happy 4th of July, readers! I've been lucky the last two weekends to get to hang out with some of my favorite family members. Last weekend my aunt, and loyal reader, Barrie came to see us in Austin. It was mercifully not so hot, so we were able to go on a decent hike on Barton Creek without melting. We also tried a Thai place in South Austin that was spicy enough to lead to some melting on my part, although it was also delicious.
|I think we meant to photograph the food as well, but at least we got a photo of Barrie at the Thai place.|
|The finished product, in as much as landscaping is ever really "finished."|
|The Safari Room, as it will henceforth be called, and the architect of the installation. The artist herself is of course not pictured.|
|This didn't come out so well, but those plates were a chore to hang, or so it sounded like from my vantage point of reading on the couch while Sam and my mom fussed with them. If the lighting were better, you would see that they look awesome.|
|The living room with two longhorns staring longingly out the window at the open range (golf course) just out of reach.|
