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.


Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...

Yesterday we purchased our Christmas tree. It makes the car smell good ;-)
In Transit

The MO handled the electrical tasks
Lighting Engineer

and Melvin helped with the decorating
Kitty Exploration

because cats love Christmas too, you know!

We did a good job, don't you think?

We have a ficus tree that we bring in for the winter (although it's getting pretty big, so this may be the last year we do it) and I decorate it, too.
The Other Tree

This year it's a Penguin Tree.

Combine Christmas carols on the digital music station, a couple of glasses of wine and curious kitties, and you get a very pleasant evening and one happy Magpie. (Hello, ornaments, they glitter, right? Of course I like Christmas....)
