Lazy B in the big City

Someone moved Houston even further away, or so it seems. It took us forever to get here last night, but it was a good to just visit as we drove. We've solved the world's problems and talked about you all. We did stop in a winery in St. Jo, which had some interesting wines - all made from Texas fruits. We bought a white zin from grapes grown in Lubbock and blackberry wine - 'cause we grow blackberries and are hoping to make wine someday. We had supper at Whataburger somewhere south of Ft. Worth. It is my favorite fast food. We had some cloud cover which kept temps down in the high 90's to low 100's. Funny that we think that is cool. It rained on us starting in College Station where we stopped to get gas and Starbuck's coffee. It was amazing how the rain cooled the temperature - down in the 70's. But after each burst of rain, the temps would start climbing back up. We eventually got to our hotel and to our room about 10 PM. It's a great room with two huge windows - north light - I'm hoping to do some painting while I'm here. I don't have to be anywhere or do anything other than please my man - iron his clothes :)

This morning I woke up with a bit of an equilibrium problem. I think it is sinus related. I did manage to have an excellent breakfast (most any breakfast is excellent when someone else makes it) with Toby before taking him to work. I also managed to find my way home after dropping him off. Yeha! There are lots of businessmen/women sorts here in the hotel. I thought of Jes, because some of the young me were cute, but could use someone to iron their clothes while on a business trip. I followed one lady out of the elevator who was dressed all professional. But as she walked ahead of me, I noticed that either the cat threw up on the back of her leg or her kid blew his nose on her pants. No, I did not tell her.

After dropping Toby off, I came back and slept for a bit - it's the equilibrium thang. Maybe now I will go hang by the pool. Museums are normally closed on Mondays - I'll save that for later. I guess I'd better get busy doing nothing. I could get used to this.

I have a LOT of experience in this space. And yeah, one does get used to it... quite easily!

I see MFAH has an exhibition devoted to Helmut Newton's photos:

"Helmut Newton: White Women • Sleepless Nights • Big Nudes"

I could do that.
