        Just another comfortable night for sleeping , windows open and a nice breeze about 60 f overnight. We have left the desert heat and now slowly working our way back home gradually  getting used to some cooler weather. Even though it was  88 f today we will be soon getting cooler weather.
         Early morning walkabout toward the golf course here I spotted some Texas Blue bonnets right here, no need to go for my drive yesterday ! Not more than a couple of hundred yards from our site.
so amazing to see
these bluebonnets 
        We are early in the season but we have the Texas Blue Bonnets and Indian paint brush just starting to bloom.  Check some of them here  our even here if you care

        This afternoon we enjoyed just more of this amazing weather reading outside in the shade. A few walkabouts between chapters keeps us limber.
         Then eventually time to think about supper. Tonight some grilled country style pork ribs that I marinated in the mix below for 3 hours.
          We even ran our air-conditions for a  but , just cause we could , first the front one then thereat one for a while just to exercise them and make sure they were  working ok. Not that we really needed  to only 88f inside and will cool down as the sun sets. All is good so far. Gonna be another wonderful evening.
        Now to whip up a salad, preheat the Weber Q 100 for 15 minutes, set the grill mat down on low and do what needs to be done. About  20 minutes later they were done to perfection, so tasty and tender and fall off the bone.
smells wonderful
added the rest of our coleslaw and had a feast,
again more leftovers,
easy lunches
     That was our fun day enjoying every minute of these wonderful March weather that we can. Sure beats the cold back home! We will get there soon enough.
       Now still outside at 7:30 blog posted and gonna read for a while just cause we can and the weather still good for shorts and sandals. Whats not to love about that?
      Thanks again for taking the time to stop on by and really hope your day way a great one as well !

  5. I love seeing all the spring colors in Texas. You probably have come across some poppies too.
    Also, I love how late the sun stays with us. Only going to get longer and more time to enjoy the outside.
