We made it to Round Top and let me tell you that preparing for a big show like Marburger in 5 days is a really, REALLY BAD idea. Things have been a little bit tough for us and on top of our mayhem, the heat is about to melt us. It has been 104 degrees for 3 days. That kind of heat to a gal who had a hysterectomy 4 weeks ago and hot flashes have kicked in equals misery. While all the rest of us are burning up, my Daddy has been kissin' it up with his favorite Texas girl, Magnolia Pearl
It's a good thing my Mom is not the jealous type! Robin is such a beautiful spirit and she always makes the show for my Dad. Thank you, Robin. You are a true Magnolia Pearl.
And in between lamps, my Mom unloaded her dried okra. This stuff is like gold out here for her. She sells enough dried okra to fill her wallet. It does look pretty all tied in bunches and arranged in an old wooden box.
The heat got the best of us by lunch time and we had to take a break. We decided to ride out to Rachael Ashwell's new store and bed and breakfast, The Prairie.
She had a way of making everything look so fresh and cool. The laundry on the clotheslines made it feel like you were "home".
