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.


Christmas (weather) in July

Here's a screenshot of the current weather:

For my friends at home, that's highs less than 60F

It's July. And I'm not in Australia. When I'm feeling optimistic, I decide this means we are going to have a correspondingly not-cold winter to go with this not-hot summer. I try to stay optimistic a lot.

On a cheerier note, the Mad Oilman remembered that he makes a mean risotto, and we've had it twice in the last week. YUMMY!!

Also, the new Google+ app is gorgeous on the iPad. I mean, it is really really pretty. It kind of makes me sad that I still don't quite get it. I want to like it, but I'm just not sure where it fits.
