Good Old Austin, Texas

We're back in Austin. The long plane ride was worth it. We landed on Saturday evening. It was warm in Austin; warmer than a November summer day in Auckland. Everyone enjoyed a few days of warmth before the winter rolled in at about Tuesday evening.

Anyone into home improvement in Austin will know about the "Extreme Makeover" episode being filmed in town. Turns out this family-in-need lives in our neighborhood. The reveal was on Sunday afternoon. Streets were blocked off, detours were everywhere, and luckily, I left for a girls' lunch before all the activity started.


I am off to Houston tomorrow. Gloria and I have the honor of cooking Christmas dinner this year. I'm looking forward to it!
