This is a pretty setting on the Amado Territory Ranch. It's located behind a restaurant called Firefly. I was looking for some frogs but there weren't any lilly pads like there were the last time I went out there. I'm not sure being outside and surrounded by trees and grasses was the brightest thing I've done lately. *cough, cough* but you get an idea of what fall looks like here. We don't get color changes because we don't have broad-leafed trees. Ours are all variations of needle-like leaves. The trees here are Mesquite, I think.
Another medical adventure with my mom yesterday. She's declining fairly quickly, both mentally and physically. For me, there was good news (and a bit of bad news) today. The good news is that I have finished designing my new kitchen cabinets (cherry) and countertops (granite) with the store guy. The bad news is that they are going to cost a lot more than expected. New appliances will be explored during the Black Friday sales in a few weeks. Homeownership. Yikes!
