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.


A Perfect Rose

A Perfect Rose

Central Market has had roses on sale for the last couple of weeks--two dozen for $9.99. How am I supposed to resist that? Roses don't last as long as some other kinds of flowers, but they are soooo pretty. The ones we bought last weekend were hot pink and yellow, and mostly gone by this weekend, but there was one flower that opened up just perfectly. It was pointing straight up, so its petals opened out around it without the whole thing flopping down off the top of the stem. I was able to keep a couple of these to mix in with the new batch so we have even more roses around the house this week. I love it....
