And now, back to our regularly scheduled program

And now, back to our regularly scheduled program

  Spring break is FINALLY over. The last two weeks felt so long. Not bad long–it was a great break. But I think it makes the rest of the school year harder to face, to buckle down and get back into the groove. Only 32 more school days left! I think Roxi feels refreshed, though. […]

Living as an American (Texan!) in England

Yesterday, I was exchanging messages with Emm about what to write for World Blog Surf Day. I was trying to think of a way to boil down my expat experience here in England. Two years of living abroad was a bit too much to condense into a short post. However, one thing I kept circling […]

Tuesday Ramblings

This photo has nothing to do with today’s post. I just forgot to post it yesterday. As we were walking toward Leister Square on Saturday, we saw this group of police hurrying toward the Gaza rally in Trafalgar Square. Apparently some protesters broke the windows of a nearby Starbucks. You just never know what you’ll […]

Hi, it’s me again.

You know that weekly format I said I’d go to? Never mind. I can’t seem to function without my weekday brain dump here at JaPRA, so this blog will continue as is. If I disappear without warning, that means my art muse has paid me a visit and we’re in the studio.  What’s new around […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is not a rude gesture. I asked Roxi what I should say in my Thanksgiving post and she made “Turkey Hands”. Photo on my Blackberry Pearl because I’m too lazy to boot up my other computer for Photoshop.  Today I’ll start cooking our Thanksgiving feast–we’re doing our meal tomorrow, remember? I’ll start the pumpkin […]

But why POLAND?

But why POLAND?

That’s the unasked question we saw in people’s eyes when we told them that we would be going to Krakow over the October break. I am sure they were dying to ask, why not Italy? Greece? Spain? Someplace warm? The answer is simply Krakow is just one of those places that my husband really wanted […]

Today is one of those days I wish we had a fireplace

Trudy in front of a snug little cottage not far from where she likes to run. Doesn’t it look like Snow White must live there? Taken on my Blackberry Pearl. I finally am feeling just about normal! I got sick on Oct 31 with a sore throat, fever, cough, and eventually laryngitis for four days. Roxi, on the […]

The part of the DIVA will be played by me

I think it’s best that I take a bit of a break. These computer troubles are making it extra hard to get any decent photo editing done and my tech support is out of town. So in the words of Spamalot’s King Arthur: King Arthur: Have a drink and a pee, we’ll be back for […]
