What a wonderful way to spend Sunday - boating on Lake Houston.  There are many different places to launch your boat and your opportunity to enjoy the water on Lake Houston.  And the number of boats I've seen in the neighborhood has increased greatly due to the holiday weekend.  And yet there is still plenty of room for all in the waters of Lake Houston!  You can see by the look on the face of this young boogie boarder that she LOVES Lake Houston.  And I can almost hear her saying "Go Faster Daddy!"   Susan Brown, Your Texas Connection sells real estate in Walden on Lake Houston, Eagle Springs, Summerwood, Atascocita, TX, Kingwood Greens, Royal Shores & Kingwood, TX - just to name a few!  Susan's the team leader for Your Texas Connection at Keller Williams Realty NE.  Visit their websit...

I play golf in a Wednesday night ladie's league at Walden in Lake Houston.  We have a great time trying to get our 9 holes in before it gets dark!  Since every shot brings us to a different place on the golf course, some more odd than others, we get to see all kinds of wildlife along the way.  A snake crossed the cart path in front of us a few weeks ago.  We saw "frisky" squirrels last week.  But last night wins for the cutest animal sighting - a duck family.  All the little quackers were clustered together by the edge of the pond & I couldn't resist grabbing my cell phone for a picture.  They were so sweet - just ducky you might say!  (groan) Susan Brown, Your Texas Connection sells real estate in Walden on Lake Houston, Eagle Springs, Summerwood, Atascocita, TX, Kingwood Greens, Royal...

Your Permanent Record.  Remember that?  I do.  It was frightening.  A permanent record of everything I did in life - especially the stuff that wasn't right.  The wrong stuff.  I can hear my Mom now, "That'll go on your Permanent Record Susan."  Oh the worry that caused.  And I was a good kid.  What about now?  What is the NEW Permanent Record?How about Facebook?  Or Twitter?  Or You Tube?  I think those NEW Permanent Records are a lot more concrete than the one I faced.  And today it's not only a personal record but it's out there in cyberspace for everyone to see.  And it really doesn't go away.  And you aren't even necessarily in control of the discretions that end up on your own record. Let's look at a possible scenario.  A young adult who enjoys playing online games, like Mafia Wars...

I drew inspiration this morning from my dog Parker.  He got up frisky and raring to go.  Outside to take care of business & back inside for breakfast.  He butted heads with the cats & decided it was time to play with one of his favorite toys.  Frantically, he searched for the right one & finally found his chipmunk buddy!  However, when the chipmunk was called in to be the fetchee in a game of fetch, it appeared the chipmunk wasn't ready.  So Parker sat down nose-to-nose to negotiate his plans. Much like my day today.  I have a few meetings that I need to conduct nose-to-nose - hopefully I'll be as successful as Parker!     Susan Brown, Your Texas Connection sells real estate in Walden on Lake Houston, Eagle Springs, Summerwood, Atascocita, TX, Kingwood Greens, Royal Shores & Kingwood, T...

Who framed Tiger?  Cat owners understand the help that is provided at every corner by our feline friends.  Say you're cooking dinner - well the kitty steps right up to stand under your feet - providing floor coverage in case something falls.  Meow.  Or say you're making the bed.  Of course the kitty is there to jump under the sheet to straighten the edges out as they run back and forth.  Sometimes the sheet really needs extra straightening so the cat is required to lay on their back with all four legs stuck straight up.  This is a special maneuver passed on through the generations.  Now, I was putting a frame together.  And yes, Tiger was right there to hold the pieces I didn't need any longer.   The Designer Mat for my Designer Cat!   Susan Brown, Your Texas Connection sells real estat...

Just recently I wrote a blog about a new restaurant in Atascocita called The Leaf House.  Located in Orleans Square on W. Lake Houston, this establishment offers sandwiches, soup & salads plus desserts.  And although we tried lunch that day, in the interest of just making sure that the food is really as good as we thought it was, another trip was made today.  We felt it was our duty to our readers to test just another sandwich, soup & dessert.  And we are happy to report The Leaf House prepared another delicious lunch for us today!  Here are the photo's.  And the menu.  And the chalkboard.  I think you'll be making a trip to The Leaf House in Atascocita soon!  Susan Brown, Your Texas Connection sells real estate in Walden on Lake Houston, Eagle Springs, Summerwood, Atascocita, TX, Kingw...

Are these obsolete?  They are still piled on my porch once a year.  And I still take them inside and make a pretty stack.  But do I use them?  Um.  Not really.  Anything I need when I'm at home I Google on my desk or lap top.  If I'm out and about, I use the Blackberry for my phone number or address needs.  I don't even use them to look at an ad because I can find reviews online in a variety of places.  What about you?  Do you have a stack of obsolete books too?

We have a new frozen yogurt store in Atascocita.  Tutti Frutti.  And it is delicious!  When you walk in the front door, you are greeted with a variety of frozen yogurt flavors.  It is self-serve, so once you select your container size you can find a flavor.  Each machine (and there are at least 6 of them) holds two flavors, like Banana & Peanut Butter.  So, you can pull the lever for either of the flavors or choose the center lever to twist the two flavors together.  Some recent flavors have been Mango, Strawberry, Chocolate, Vanilla, Cookies'n Creme, Pomegranate, Taro* & Red Bean. Once you have your frozen yogurt, on to the toppings.  Raspberries, blackberries, little cheesecake bites, mochi**, nuts, oreo pieces, m&m's, peanut butter cup pieces & chocolate sprinkles.  And these are jus...
