Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


Brown Spiral Necklace

Brown Spiral.jpg This is a project that has been languishing for... well... over a year, at least. My friend Ann and I have instituted the Bead Project Lunch once a week. My focus for a while is going to be to finish up some of the stuff I have in my largish stash of unfinished projects. I have a lot of things that just need clasps, which was the case with this necklace. I made it on a visit to LA when Mark and I went to a CLUI opening. Now that you can't take scissors on planes anymore (like I'm gonna stab somebody with cuticle scissors), beadwork is not as convenient as it used to be, but I have logged many airline miles with needle and thread in hand. I'm so glad those days are over! (Because of the flying, not the beading, of course!)
