Cool New Year's!

Literally. . . it was cool, maybe even a might bit cold today. We went out with sweatshirts on and light jackets. Not bad for January 1, though. I'm not complaining. There is lots of sunshine in Houston, so if you stay out of the shade, you can get warm.

We went off to a flea market today, Trader's Village. It was a bit of a disappointment. It was supposed to open at dawn, but there weren't many people or vendors there even at 10 a.m. We walked to get our exercise then we left. We drove back streets and byways till we got to Ikea. We spent quite a lot of time in there. We love that store and we are looking for ideas to use in our Texas room we plan to build next year. We bought a few items but not much. It was just relaxing to walk through the store and look at all the options for furniture, cabinets, etc.

When we finished up there, we found a BBQ restaurant and had lunch. I had to bring most of mine home. The portion of meat was so large and I will probably be able to get three sandwiches out of what was left.

On the way back, I took a couple pictures of Reliant Stadium with the roof retracted. It is within two miles of our campground, so we see it every time we go out. It sits right next to the Astrodome.

Till next time. . .
