Just back from my forty-eight hours of dog-sitting in the hill country. It was a blissful weekend~from the sweet-natured dogs to the pool to the quiet to the exquisite and charming home. Funny how just a few miles away can seem another county.
I also purposely disconnected from the torrent of words that are filling the world right now. And yes, I realise that I have the luxury of doing so~my world is generally a very safe and privileged one. It was a day of quietness and reflection.
|Texan July sun ain't so bad when there's a pool nearby|
|Totally illegal, but who could resist that sweet face?|
|The guest suite|
|Probably the only time my car will be in the same garage as a Ferrari|
|My host was inspired by my sister's Lindt-filled guest pillow~so this is to show her that others can do chocolate :)|
|Six burners of a Viking stove!|
|The outside dining and lounging area~I spent pretty much the entire weekend either floating in the pool or reading in various lounge chairs|
|My French concoction|
|The graceful entrance|
