The revolving door at "chateau scfr" continues to spin.

My mom came & stayed with us for 8 days. She loved Austin and the house, and I really enjoyed showing her the sights. Went to the LBJ Museum, day trip to Fredericksburg, Umlauf Sculpture Gardens, day trip to San Anotonio, and AMOA Laguna Gloria. We dined on gorditos at Haberno Cafe, noshed on German food in Fredericksburg, and chowed down Texas BBQ at the Salt Lick.

In between DH's family's stay & mom's visit, 2 of DH's business clients came for short stays. (And there are more coming soon!)

Oh the joys of having a new home in a city people are curious about ...

A tiny bit of financial news: I finally sold my "junk" gold, a very thin broken necklace & a man's pinkie ring that for some inexplicable reason DH's mother had given me several years ago (it was used) and I don't wear. Got $200. But I also decided to use the same jeweler the replace a clasp on a broken necklace I found on the sidewalk; that cost me $30, so I really only netted $170 + a necklace. The necklace is a silver one from Tiffany, worth approx $300 from what I can see on-line, and I like it, so decided to fix it up and keep it. Lest you worry about my integrity, I DID post a notice about finding the necklace on our HOA's web site, and left it up there for 2 months waiting for the owner to claim it. They never did.

    I'll make my reservations now! Smile Room for two with a view! JK! That is wonderful that you are getting so many visitors! You will have to remove the "aside" in your About Me section that says things to do in Austin (where we are staying) to (where we live!)

    I have missed you. You need to post more often. Sounds like you have been very busy!

    Boomeyer, I was just thinking the same thing! And scfr, I would even travel alone, by myself, without a clan of children. I'm relatively small and I'd probably sleep well on a lawnchair outdoors. Just kidding ... my life is swirling with stupid chaos, and I'm just planning my fantasy escape!

    You sound like a lovey hostess!

    I loved my trip to Fredricksburg a few ... wait, 4? years ago! If you guys go that way again, be sure to check out the hiking at Enchanted Rock. LBJ's farm/museum is a pretty cool place too. Smile
    Good to hear from you!
