Not Too Cold, Not Too Hot, It’s Just Right

Kids at Mayfield Park in Austin

Blue Eyes, the girls and I have loved Austin’s winter so far, cold-but-not-too-cold mornings for bundling up and warm-but-not-too-warm sunny afternoons for playing outside. The girls and I discovered trails behind Mayfield Park, with an outdoor set of stairs to a small pier overlooking the lake. Mayfield Park wasn’t too bad either, with real live peacocks, ponds with fish and funky old buildings.

(Someone might expect a picture of one of the real-live peacocks, but they were in the trees when we were there, with their feathers folded down. Who knew that peacocks could fly into the trees? I didn’t know that.)

I’m working on yet another new set of pages for y’all, so I’m going to take a break from posts for a while. I hope you have a nice winter and enjoy the lovely weather.  I’ll be back soon.

  1. Green Pastures has great peacocks as well. My son loves to go there and our solution is to meet friends at Sunday brunch, eat and then frollick around the grounds. They even have albino peacocks!
