Fun in Austin before rolling out!

Being back in Austin sure made me grateful for all that we have here on the mainland - we are soooo blessed with an abundance of EVERYTHING...I mean, seriously, we can find most everything we want - at all times...especially with the internet...not to mention, have it delivered TO OUR DOOR for next to nuthin'.

The first few days back I was in 'task' mode...I had to start selling and downsizing immediately. So, I put my scooter on Craigslist and poof - she was gone in a day! Everything fell into place perfectly.

I spent some wonderful time in great conversation with my dear Austinites before heading back on the road. So, so, SOOO grateful for all of their friendships - Austin is full of special peeps!

I even baked an old-school-have-no-idea-what-I-am-doing apple pie! Michelle said she wanted it covered - but when I tried to put the crust on top, it all fell apart - and so we called it our toupee apple pie...clearly I should stick to raw fruit - simple, simple, simple for this girl!

Before I left, I also lucked out in being able to see Craig Sommer's cob home and self sustained homestead in Bastrop. Wow - it is amazing...from the lake, fruit trees and total design. He had some WWOOFer's there which brought back some fun memories - cool to see all the self sufficiency going on - he is clearly far ahead of the curve - extremely inspiring - and great 'food for thought' for my upcoming road trip!

Next stop...road trippin'!!

Love and hugs to all!
Joy
