|Grand daughter looking at the Mississippi in the New Orleans French Quarter|
Well, I'm back home in Dallas and my pics post just fine here (?). So I will post a few taken as we walked around the French Quarter and visited some of the shops.

As I mentioned before I stayed at my daughter's house in the Hill Country around San Antonio from Wednesday until Saturday morning. The weather was wonderful (there's always a breeze on their porch - which runs all the way around the house). While they were all at work and school, I cleaned a little, cooked a little, crocheted some (is that right? or is the past tense just crochet?), and read some... also sat with the dogs on the front porch, watched the horses, and talked to the chickens.
The chickens are so-oo cute. They are Cochins... and have those feathery legs. They are small and fat and lay small (but delicious) eggs. Here is a picture of *Frizzle*, one of their brood that they didn't think would live as it was very small and looked strange even as a chick. But Frizzle is doing fine. Her feathers are very curly which make her look a bit *frizzled*, but we think she is adorable.

And of course I have to post a pic of grand daughter and her horse. They were practicing their jumps in the arena and I was taking videos. Apparently you can take a pic off a video... also something new I learned this past week.
Well, guess that's the news for today. My back has been bothering me from the long time riding in the truck. But I have to say that the truck itself was very large and comfortable... (love those heated seats!), but my old bones seem to be protesting a bit. They will adjust.
This morning DH and I went to the mall to walk and buy some new pods for my Nespresso machine. We also stopped by Godiva and picked up our free chocolate. If you join the Godiva club, you will get free chocolate once a month. It's great! Of course they expect you to come in and buy other stuff, which is generally what happens.
