First I thought I'd share a couple of pictures from the trip over:
A crow at the Petrified Forest National Park in
Looking out the back window in New Mexico
My mom's and my shadows at Cadillac Ranch in Armarillo, TX
Really cool trilobite fossil!
And now some pictures from Big Thicket where I'm living!
Sunset driving home
These spiders are HUGE and like to build their thick webs across paths... which of course I run into all the time. Let me tell you, it's creepy to all of the sudden have this guy and a bunch of its strong web in your face.
This is more or less what my commute looks like.
Basically, it's really, really pretty here and I feel so lucky I get to live in the middle of it. There are deer and hogs and squirrels and a number of birds all around the house, not to mention all the insects and pretty butterflies and snakes and lizards. It cooled off a lot in the past week so it's not as humid, but warm enough that sitting outside is really pleasant.
