The first Saturday of April I took Strider, one of the Dogs Out Loud dogs available for adoption, to McKinney Falls where the bluebonnets were just AMAZING. Also saw some wild clematis (which was kinda cool... and it made me want some, so now I gotta find a place for that).
|Strider. He is the dog I'd get if my husband would let me have a dog. You can read more about him at the Dogs Out Loud page here: http://www.dogsoutloud.org/adoptables/strider/|

Then on Sunday I ran the Cap10k. It was my first time doing the race, and the first time I'd ever done 10k. Since I ran all over the course while Shawn was doing his XTERRA race the other week taking photos, he ran all over the course of the 10k taking photos of me. GREAT.
The following weekend I spent Saturday morning reading a book and cleaning all of my bird stuff (and contemplating getting a feeder specifically for the woodpeckers, and upgrading my hummingbird feeder to something easier to clean). THEN I went to the East Austin Garden Fair. Where I didn't take any photos, which I'm sure all the Master Gardeners are happy about. But I did get to spend a few hours talking with Vicki, Meredith, Sheryl, Caroline and Daphne. I missed Ally, though she had to have been there because she always works the chicken table, though maybe she was at home with her new puppies. After the EAGF, I picked the husband up on our way to visit his parents for a pre-Easter get together.
Sunday, I spent most of the day doing Floodplain Outreach at the Colorado River Alliance Family Festival. Afterwards, I decided to reward myself with a trip to BookPeople (mostly I was looking for a book titled "Bones would Rain from the Sky," which I didn't find, so instead I got a book of Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales and a true crime book about a serial killer in Paris in the 1940s. Eclectic tastes, I have them.)
