Weekend Verandah photos

I've never been able to post my Weekend Verandah photos.

I have been trying but each time I've tried, I have been unable to keep an internet connection! These photos are in reference to a couple of posts down, our stay at the Weekend Verandah bed and breakfast. I have recommended it to some friends of ours. I would be ready to go back there again sometime!

That I'd like to see.

business insurance

I've never been to buy business insurance.

Which makes sense since we do not own our own business! But we have friends and neighbors who do. I know business insurance is imperative when owning a business. Getting the best insurance you can at an affordable rate only makes sense. Being able to compare and get quotes seems to make the decision easier. A sensible move for business owners. Taking good care of your business makes it easier to take good care of your customers.

on a motorcycle in a storm

I had never been on a motorcycle in a storm before.

I had not been on the motorcycle much before anyway. But my husband talked me into riding his bike on our trip last weekend. As we were leaving the bed and breakfast, we were blessed with a gift by our hosts. We decided instead of going straight home, we would go all the way down to Galveston for dinner. We got rained on as we entered our home town, but we pulled off and let it pass. We checked the news and everything seemed clear. We headed down to a good restaurant on the island. It was crowded, but still pretty good.

We headed over to the beach. Finally got situated when we saw the dark cloud heading our way. It seemed to be passing over quickly, but the wind got unbelievable strong. We hung out a little while longer, but the wind started worrying my husband and he thought it was storming toward the north, which is the way we needed to head home.

By the time we got suited up and able to leave, the wind had died down a bit, but it was dark and there was lots of lightening. The rain wasn't too bad but we were pretty terrified getting back home. It was a real relief when we pulled into our own garage.

I told him I would take another bike trip with him. But only if there are no storms around!

I had never been to freewebdirectories before.

It looks like it is full of useful information for bloggers. Here, you can find free and paid web directories, learn how to drive traffic with search engines, learn seo tips, read the blog and join the forum. This may have some useful info for those in the blogging world who need a jump start to their blog.

Weekend Verandah

I had never been to the Weekend Verandah.

We just spent two nights at this wonderful bed and breakfast. It is located in New Baden, TX, outside of Franklin, about an hour from Bryan. There are three cabins to rent. We loved the one we stayed in, under the cedar tree. We enjoyed the golf cart to go around the property. We loved the pool. We loved the pond filled with lily pads, dragon flies and turtles. We loved laying out looking at the stars at night. We appreciate the hospitality and kindness of our hosts. I am hoping to take our kids there to enjoy the peace and quiet.

glass tiles

I've never been to buy glass tiles.

We have talked before about getting our shower redone. I had never considered using glass tile before. I saw some on a website. The glass tiles sure are pretty and would certainly enhance our bath. However, at this point in time, with two teens and one starting to think about college, I think bathroom remodeling is on hold. Maybe one of these days....
