What December First Looks Like…in Texas

Cat and Bike

Wednesday’s Bike Ride Commute (and fun mobile photo session!) (12/01/10)

December in Texas is a funny month.  One morning it’s literally freezing and I’m digging out my scarf and gloves; the next day it’s balmy and I take an afternoon walk without my coat.  It’s disconcerting and lovely and totally bizarre.  I adore this place.

On Wednesday, I rode the bike to and from work, and on the way home, I had time to stop at Brazos Natural Foods to pick up sweet potatoes and crisp celery, just in time to make this recipe, my adaptation of which was totally delicious.  It’s been a slow week for me at work, so I was able to leave early enough to catch the last of the day’s sunshine with my camera.  I also encountered a very friendly cat who proceeded to make whiskery love to my bike, circling round and round and rubbing its cheek on all the surfaces it could reach.  Luckily, I find this sort of thing quite charming, so I allowed it.


  1. oh my goodness, these pictures are so calming and beautiful! just why i want to ride a bike all the time.

  2. Aw, thanks, Tania! I feel the same way. The sunsets here are phenomenal.
