Hello April

April means farewell, for we winter Texans.

Not fated to be a quick journey, as problems keep arising, grounding travel, and interfering with our plans.

Fulvous Whistling Ducks, beak to beak

Nevertheless, April means Spring and everywhere we look the birds are twittering with extra fervency – is that romance in the air?

One happy bird in red

And even though we’ve encountered setbacks – breakdowns and other nuisances – the trees are greener, and some even have sprouted blooms.

Our time in the south may be closing, but the South will forever remain in our hearts. A little bit of Texas is coming home with us.

So long for now, y’all.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. A little bit of Ontario will always be in our hearts because of you. Hopefully High Island and Anahuac proved delightful. Safe journey.

  2. I’ve been wondering if Texas seems like a whole “nuther” world to you, as a Canadian–a different culture entirely? Anyway, you’re in my constant thoughts (constant, as in frequent and faithful)–and sending up extra prayers for the way home to be smoother ❤

    1. Texas is so different than small town Ontario – in countless ways. It’s been such a wonderful experience. We are currently hold up in Mississippi without a car – it died – and waiting on service for the RV. It has been teeming rain all day. Sorry to gripe but I just want to be home.


      1. Oh my goodness, oh my goodness…SO Sorry to hear this news. Hang on tight, help is on the way (meaning: I’ve nagged God 🙂 )
