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.


Lots of Pretty and Shiny


1. Gems, 2. Gems, 3. Gems, 4. Gems

How gorgeous is all that?! A few weeks ago when the MO was out of town on business, I was clicking through tv channels and happened across something called Jewelry TV.... Oh my. If they had been selling their finished jewelry at that point, all this could have been avoided, because I wouldn't have looked twice, but no, they had to be selling loose gemstones. Really yummy ones. In grab bags.... So yeah, I caved. AND I'M SO GLAD I WAS WEAK.
