** long-range views (I don't like to be enclosed and am grateful that I can see for miles and miles from my back door).

** from my back door, viewing the cattle and/or horses

** rural areas without hustle and bustle

** wildflowers and blossoming fruit trees

** seeing deer, raccoons, armadillos, road runners, opossums, and fireflies

** running and swimming with the dogs at the lake when not a soul is in sight ~ only noise may be of nature (wind rustling leaves, birds chirping, dogs splashing in the water) or the occasional sound of a motor boat

** clean country air

** leaves turning in autumn

** cool Spring days when the leaves are coming out and are in every shade of green imaginable

** stunning sunrises and sunsets especially in the country

** sitting in the backyard on a clear night with the stars shining brightly, something very soothing to the soul

** Mr. Moon when he is so full and bright

** satisfaction that I can purchase all I need in my rural country town and never having to face the mobs at Wal*Mart or worse
I think I'm in love!

Hey my fellow Texas lovers! I just wanted to let y'all know that I just registered for the San Antonio rock 'n' roll marathon in November '09. That way, even if we haven't been able to make our move yet, I'll get my little Texas fix anyway. If you register by December 15 and enter HOLIDAY in the promo box at checkout, you'll get $10 off! Just go to Rock 'n' Roll San Antonio Marathon and Half Marathon 2009 - San Antonio Texas to register. Maybe it seems crazy, but if Katie Holmes and Oprah can run a marathon, then doggone it, so can I! I'll draw my inspiration from the Alamo . See ya there!

Good for you dweej...wish I could join you! I hope you are moved and settled in Texas just in time for this marathon. That is a great goal to prepare for. This forum helps me alot while I am waiting to move. The other things I've done is call the chamber of commerce in the various towns I'm interested in...they send out so much info. I have had subscriptions to all kinds of Texas magazines, such as Texas Highways and Fort Worth, The Magazine. Travel Tex has a yearly guide that you can order for free. When I start getting homesick for Texas I have a whole arsenal of stuff to get me by.

Thanks again senoritacharlene for starting this thread. It will be neat when we are all on the "other side" of the waiting to move scenario. We can start a new thread about our move to Texas experiences . Get the Travel Tex guide, it is really nice and in full color. You can get the 2008 edition now, but the 2009 one is right around the corner.

Ha, I actually just went onto the TravelTex website and realised that I actually already have the 2008 guide! lol. We will definitely have to start another thread when we are all there!
