I love this time of the year with the cold fronts coming in and cooling the temps down. Now if we can only get some more rain that would be even better. Here in Georgetown we are currently on mandatory watering restrictions stage 4, meaning no watering outside period. The only type of watering allowed is if you use a watering can. No water hoses, or anything like that. So our yard is suffering quite a bit. Our poor crepe myrtle tree is on it's last legs. We had gotten a notice from the HOA telling us we need to remove the dead tree but there are still green leaves on it especially after the rain. Some of the brown ones started to turn green again. However if rain doesn't start falling we will lose the tree which makes me sad. We will need to remove it and plant something new once more. Although our ground is hard as a rock now and it would be tough.
I am hoping that once they fix the pipe that is making us be on such strict water restrictions we will be able to water with the handheld hose once more and can save it.
Now on to news of whats going on in our lives. Work has been busy but that is a good thing. It definitely helps time fly by a little more so. My birthday is next Thursday which I'm looking forward to. We are going to buy some steaks and Ian's going to be the grill master for me. =) I think we are going to do some new potato's, grill zuchinni and rolls. Then for my birthday cake, I'm debating between choc cake or pumpkin pie. Leaning more towards the pumpkin pie because it is one of my favorite fall flavors.
We head to OK in two weeks as well. So excited about this little get away. Even though I know that trip will fly by it will be nice to get out of town and visit with mama and papa faas. I plan on packing the vacation planning video we got from Disney with us. This way we can watch it together and get excited about the Jan trip.
I can't believe we are almost in the double digits for the trip. I think we hit double digits on Thursday or Friday. Eek! One interesting thing I found out from my boards I visit to plan Disney trips, is that Big Thunder Mountain at the Magic Kingdom will be down for refurbishment. So sad, because I was looking forward to tackling the three mountains when we go in Jan as Ian and I missed out on Magic Kingdom when we went last July. The plus side is apparently they usually take down Splash Mountain in Jan but because of the one being down, they plan on keeping Splash up. I am glad for that because I have been on Big Thunder before but never been on Splash. Hopefully we can catch most of the shows and parades too because my family knows how much I love a good parade. One of these days we will go for the holiday time so we can see the parks done up for Christmas time. Maybe the holidays before our 15th wedding anniversary.
And yes I did mess with the layout/background again. LOL. I wasn't digging the other way because I didn't have my links like I have with this version.
I think that's all for now.
