It was another hot one here in Dallas today...103 degrees/105 with the heat index. No relief in site for at least another week. So I stay inside during the hot part of the day and dream of my recent visits to my Mom and Dad's house at the lake. The Cupcake Princess calls them Oma and Opa.
They live on one of the most beautiful lakes in Central Texas. The house sits on the top of a cliff in a cove, looking out onto the main channel.
This is the grande, Texas Taj Mahal that Oma designed. The fireplace was my idea, to the chagrin of Opa. However, I must say that he enjoys roasting marshmellows for s'mores in that fireplace on cool evenings.
Every morning, this is what we see looking through the breakfast nook window. The hummingbird feeder is very busy during the spring and summer months. Beautiful, yes? When it's not so hot outside, we have breakfast on the upper deck, read the morning paper, visit, and just admire the lake. Most relaxing! More tomorrow........
