This Week's Pics!

This picture was taken in my backyard.
I embarked on the worst bike journey....
Through the fields of flowers I went....
Rode near a fallen tree and got a flat tire. I had to call my dad to bring me home. He took me to Sun and Ski  Sports to get my tire fixed. We learned that we could fit the bike in the trunk, all we had to do is take the seat out.
Anyway here is a picture of a random bug! I don't know what the name of it is.

Squirrel!
Cool motorcycle.
Went to Hamilton Pool in Dripping Springs, TX with my dad and brother. Here's the website, http://www.co.travis.tx.us/tnr/parks/hamilton_pool.asp


















The pool used to be in a cave along time ago. This whole are opened up by itself, it's not man made. That's what my dad told me.


Smile!



That's it for this week's pics! There will be no more long bike rides and I don't know if we'll be coming back here or, anywhere else next week so, I might not have anything to show y'all. I don't know we'll see! : )

Blogging Rut!

This week's Pondering With a Purpose focuses on blogging ruts, do you feel like you are stuck in a rut? We'll I do, sometimes making the same posts over and over again can get tedious and then boring. I've had to change my posts every so often because I got tired of doing the same posts over and over again. I felt like I was in a blogging rut and I wanted to get out of it so, I stopped making those same posts and started making different ones, like the ones that I want to make.
I've actually been getting in kind of a rut recently but, a different kind of rut, a time rut. I try to keep up with a couple of memes each week and I usually don't get to them in the time that everybody does them and I feel like i'm in a rut. I can't ever find the time to do all the things that I want to do during the day so, I usually end up being late on my posts. Sometimes I just don't want to do them because i'm just so tired of trying to keep up with everything, stuck in a blogging rut....

Is Your Cat Afraid of Lemons?

For some reason that i'm not sure why, Simon is afraid of lemons. Is Simon the only one or, are their other cats who don't like lemons? What does your cat think about them? Happy Cat Thursday or, later in the week, was a little late. Maybe i'll just count this one has tomorrow's since tomorrow is Thursday.

Ponder With a Purpose: Blogging World!

This week's Pondering With a Purpose focuses on the blogging world vs. the real world, how they are different from each other. Well my blogging world is completely different from my real world. Most of the people besides my family even know that I have a blog. I never share any of my blogger posts to Facebook because I don't think any of my '"friends" would be able to relate to them.
That's why I like Blogger because you can choose who and what you talk about and it doesn't really even matter. I feel more free to say what I want where as in real life i'm afraid. Everybody is real and down to earth, "you don't like me then go somewhere else." It's the internet no one cares.
You can be who you want to be and say what you want without worry. Well.... pretty much.. there are some things that you shouldn't tell people like your address and things but, other than that you can pretty much just say what you want and blab about what you want. I'm with Brenda I do feel closer to my bloggers than the people I talk to in real life, sometimes I even pay more attention to them and worry more about what they think of me rather than what my friends or, family is thinking. Pretty much all my time whether on or, off Blogger is spent thinking about my blog and what I should or should not have said to other bloggers.
It's like my own little world, my escape....

Houston Trail and Nature Pics Plus Some Video!

Found this sign near one of the trails in George Bush park, more history!
Here's a picture of what the ranch used to look like, not sure if y'all will be able to read the sign though. It basically just says that the ranch was located here or, close to here and that it was founded by E.H. and Maud Marks. They're famous for breeding H7 cattle and taking part in making the first rodeo which is a cattle show that takes place every year in the Reliant Stadium, it's mostly a show for farmers but, everybody likes to go to it.
This is a monument that the Marks family made to remember their ranch.
Not sure what this is?
I think it might be some kind of well, maybe a former oil well?
Took some more pictures of powerlines, heard a weird buzzing noise was scared. Wouldn't want to be standing here during a thunder storm or, hurricane.
This looks like a nice place to sit.

A sign that tells about the different creatures that are on the trail.


Black turtle.
Green turtle.
Green pond, looked like grass, careful watch your step, possible alligators down below.
Rows and rows of powerlines!
Some information on the bayous and birds. Texas has more species of birds than any other state in the country! They like to migrate through the bayous.
I found the Easter bunny, he was hiding under the grass.
So that's why they call it the ant hills, so many ant piles, they look like little huts, ant village!






I'm not sure why but, my camera sometimes shows a dark image when I take pictures towards the sky on sunny days. This picture looks like it was taken in the 70's which I think is pretty cool.
More powerlines!

Some refinery or, something, I took a picture of these tubes because they look like they came from a cruise ship.
My bike needed a rest.

Support the troops! I think these are for the National Guard but, i'm not sure.
Video of the dam at the entrance of the George Bush park, we had alot of rain the day before.

Lots of photos! I hope you enjoyed looking at them. I've done 430 miles so far on my bike with still more trails to explore. Not sure where i'm going to go next week, bye for now!
