Did I mention I have been eating again (as opposed to the bone broth fast)?
Maybe I shouldn’t have had the blackberry cobbler at Threadgill’s (???)
Captain, captain … we need a course correction!

Timing is everything …
The Mrs and I decided to take a road trip from Catbeard Manor in West Houston to Threadgill’s Armadillo World Headquarters restaurant in Austin. http://www.threadgills.com/
Little did we know it was the final weekend of SXSW. http://schedule.sxsw.com/
Miraculously we just pulled into the parking lot, found the one remaining handicapped parking spot (the Mrs MS grants us tags), and immediately got a table.
The Mrs had a top shelf margarita “Herradura”. I had coffee (designated driver). She had fried catfish with “corn off the cob” and sweet potato fries. I had meat loaf with mashed potatoes and gravy (after having meatloaf at home for the past two nights*).
Life is good …

I am watching the series Grand Designs on NETFLIX. The County Derry 2014 episode is about a “young farmer and architect in Northern Ireland [who] hopes to make a home out of four large shipping containers welded together to form a giant cross.”
Note: in the YouTube video I found (below) the audio is a bit sped up and the image is reversed left to right … but you get the idea. (Yes, yes, I know that that the Irish and the Brits drive on the “other side” of the road from us Yanks, but that is NOT the reason that the image is reversed)
If you like architecture and love gorgeous homes you should try to catch this series!

Currently watching this series on Netflix. Just finished watching El Hierro. Gives me hope for the future.
If you have NETFLIX – watch it.
