My organizational brain is in overdrive today. Trying to figure out how to fit three months worth of clothing into these few bags is just as tricky as a thousand-piece jigsaw puzzle, though I think it may just come down to sheer force. I’m already thinking that packing the car with everything later this evening will be less of a struggle than packing each individual bag!
But amidst the craziness that is the apartment (and my mind) we took some time out this afternoon to visit the Japanese Tea Garden, near the San Antonio Zoo. It really is a tranquil, beautiful little park, especially when there are less than a dozen other people sharing the space with you.
All the stonework is intricate and quite impressive. The bridges and pathways gently meander through the ponds and gardens. The Koi fish in the ponds are substantial, but not overwhelming (unlike the stinky feeding fish in practically every body of water at the Zoo!).
The large main canopy at the entrance provides an abundance of shade, and I am sure the unique space can be seen in all sorts of wedding, engagement, and graduation pictures!
The garden isn’t a huge space, and it doesn’t take all that much time to wander over the paths, but it was just the right size to get outside, enjoy the warm sun and fresh air, and find a few minutes of peace before jumping back into the land of Packing.
