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.



We had beautiful weather for Valentine's Day:
Early Spring

How come projects expand to fill all available time? I have many projects ongoing at the moment. They are expanding. I am not good at setting "good enough" mid-points. I want everything perfect from the get-go. So sometimes I feel like I'm not getting anything done at all.... [I'm actually quite good at this at work--it just doesn't carry through to my personal projects.]

Melvin had an encounter with a porch kitty through the living room window last night. I thought she was going to explode right out of her skin and/or break the window. She was so agitated that she tackled Lorax, who had just wandered in to see what the fuss was.

I think these illustrations would make some really awesome scrapbook pages. (Latest favorite blog--lots of good browsing there.)

See? Miscellany. But now I feel like I've accomplished something ;-)
