Tuesday Tidbits #207 Just Like That


Happy New Year!

Just like that Christmas is over and a New Year has begun! I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to Christmas yet… I love the Magic of the Season along with the twinkling lights that make the darkness of the night disappear.

I love looking at these cute little Santa faces. Some are old and some are new.
Oh how I love the twinkling lights of a Christmas Tree.

When it really comes down to it… I think it’s time for me to experience the Christmas Feels without all the hectic activities and going ons. We traveled pretty much all of December. Which was absolutely wonderful as we saw family and made lots of memories. We had a beautiful Christmas! However, being away from our Christmas Home makes me still long for the Christmas Feels!

Then one day out of no where (and it will happen soon) I’ll wake up and say… “Time for Christmas to get packed up and put away!” 😃


A few weeks ago I posted about us traveling to Colorado. Then soon after… we packed up the Jeep and we found ourselves on a Road Trip to Texas to see our Family! So we decided to see some sights along the way.

Granitic Boulders of the Dragoon Mountains in South East Arizona
Following a Cotton Truck! He was losing some along the way! Cotton even stuck to our Jeep.

Marfa Texas

We saw this Border Patrol Blimp which was tethered in Marfa, Texas. They use it to locate low flying aircraft trying to cross the border from Mexico.

Along Texas Highway 90 we came across this beautiful artwork along the side of the road.

Found on Rte 90 in Marfa Texas.

Artist John Cerney created this display which depicts the actors, Elizabeth Taylor, James Dean and Rock Hudson, who were in the western film Giant. The movie was filmed on this land, Wyatt Ranch, in Marfa, Texas. It was an amazing sight! Music from the movie played in the background which was solar powered.

Alpine Texas

After Marfa… we stopped in Alpine Texas for the night. This was a quaint little town and we were so happy to see it full of murals!

Look at all the Country Singers on this mural!

Alpine was nestled between grass fields and mountains.

Ten Bits Ranch

The next morning we set out for our next resting place called Ten Bits Ranch in Terlingua, Texas. The Ranch was an off the grid place near Big Bend National Park. Since we planned on seeing all of Big Bend we needed a place to stay that was close by. Ten Bits Ranch fit the ticket! It was a Great Place to Stay!

A fabulous place to have breakfast in the morning. Adjacent to this room was a beautiful kitchen for any meal plans you might have.

The next time we chat… I will share Big Bend National Park with you. It was absolutely beautiful!
