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.

 

It was a very good day

Yesterday Marianne and I shopped ALL DAY, initially fortified by a delicious Just Joe breakfast (complete with mimosas!) and resuscitated with a typically incredible Chez Mark dinner (and several rousing hands of Quiddler). We have such good men!!

First we went to the powwow, where I found a necklace and two (2!) rings. The chain on the necklace is kind of beat up, so I may do something a bit more attractive with it at some point, but I like the spiral links.

This ring isn't nearly as fuzzy in real life...
and I thought I'd show this one in its natural setting.

Then we went to the Houston Bead Society show at the Firehouse in the Heights:

I have NO idea what I'm going to do with those teeny tiny bugle beads. They are the smallest beadies I've ever seen. But they were just too gorgeous to pass up.

Oh, the glittery goodness of it all.... 'Twas a superlative day indeed.
