* I miss trees. Real trees. there are trees in Texas but from a girl who grew up in the Redwood Forest in California they look like over grown bushes. So I miss real trees.
*There are no mountains. Here they have the Texas Hill Country. Well, in this house we call it the Texas Bump Country. Hill? Back home a Hill was when we were driving from Santa Cruz "Over The Hill" to San Jose http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Cruz_Mountains Wonderful highway 17 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_State_Route_17 I love that drive.
* Texas has more sky then I have ever seen.
* I can't get in my car, drive for ten minutes and see the Ocean. Not that I go into the ocean but I miss seeing it.

I was able to get this quilt top done. Now it has been added to the pile of quilts to get done before Christmas. I am very happy with how it turned out.
This is what my boys were up to when I was working on the quilt. The found a loose string in my blanket and tied it onto a chair. Then they spent a long time attaching Lego's to it. They were so proud of themselves.
