York, England: National Railway Museum (not just for train enthusiasts!)

York, England: National Railway Museum (not just for train enthusiasts!)

After spending four hours at the Castle Museum in York, we decided to hike over to the National Railway Museum. It is a bit of a walk, so if you are short on time, you might consider taking a taxi. Also, you might want to save your touring feet for all the walking you’ll do […]

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 […]

A Flâneur in Barcelona: A fanciful post featuring the letter "F"

A Flâneur in Barcelona: A fanciful post featuring the letter “F”

We flew to Spain. The airport is right on the coast, so our first views of Barcelona included the Mediterranean and sun. It put us in the right frame of mind for our family holiday. (Photo by Roxi on her Casio Exilm 8.1 MP) We were a bit early to check into our flat, so […]

Is it the milkman or the postman who rings twice?

Remember this? Well, I signed up for it yesterday! Fresh milk in a glass bottle (and other goodies) delivered to my door every other-ish day with a larger delivery at the end of the week. This is in addition to my staple pantry items, which are delivered once or twice a month by another company […]

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 […]

Thanksgiving menu and other food thoughts

I am feeling better today. I got a lot of planning done this weekend, plus it SNOWED yesterday! Ok, it was snow/sleet and not very much of it, but it was pretty while it lasted. In Thanksgiving news, Roxi and Mr. DJ voted the turkey off our menu in favor of a “Honey Baked” ham. […]

Tin of Tomatillos

Howdy I thought you’d like to see what my “catering-size” tin of tomatillos looked like. The fruits ranged from one inch to two and a half inches and felt like leathery water balloons, in a way. When I cut them open, the insides oozed out. It was kind of gross*. Anyway,  I have enough tomatillos here […]

Paris, France

Well, after looking over my photos from our two-and-a-half day trip to Paris last August, I realized that to overindulge in so much goodness in one sitting would be such a waste. So let us savor Paris the way it should be, leisurely, on European time. Think of this post as an amuse-bouche.  This was […]

Rose Hips

I have these beautiful rose hips on a bush that produces… …these beautiful pink roses (still blooming in October!!). And yes, that is what our sky looks like today. After reading Bee’s post on her beautiful garden yesterday, I asked her if she knew what to do with rose hips. She said they are full of […]
