Goodbye to Summer... the miniature horse...and Octoberfest!

We delivered our beautiful buckskin miniature mare, Indian Summer, to her new home near Taylor, Texas this afternoon. Thanks, Nina, for choosing her, we hope you will enjoy her!

Here she is taking a look at her new home, at least she is accustomed to llamas, but the miniature donkeys were something new and she was watching them.

After getting Summer settled in, we drove back by way of Walburg, Texas which hosts a great German restaurant. And since it was October 1st, Octoberfest was underway. 

Luckily we arrived early enough to get a table, we found out they do reservations on Fridays and Saturdays during October! We had a yummy German buffet that included some of the best schnitzel I have ever eaten. By the time we left, there was a line at the door and the parking lot was overflowing.

Fun Weekend for the Girls

A couple of weekends ago I attended a ladies' retreat with fellow church friends and family. We always have a blessed time and enjoy the Christian fellowship and fun.

The retreat location is near Round Top, Texas, a fun little town that is known for its massive antique market. Vendors were setting up when we were there for the following week. 

Another neat place near Round Top is Festival Hill. They have a beautiful chapel that was moved there. We love to visit it each year. Here is a website that has a panoramic view of the inside:
