It Turns Out You Can Go Back Home Again

Oh hello. After a long hiatus, I find myself back here again. I’ve wanted to come back to this space many times, but I’ve had some serious issues with WordPress security, which took a while to fix. And of course, life got in the way as usual. Anyway, here I am again. Twenty-seventeen brings with […]

Here we go again

A beautiful flowering tree in the Boston Commons. Man, it sure was a long and brutal winter. It’s been nearly two years to the day since I’ve posted on this blog. There must be something in the air this time of year, because I desperately wanted to write something here yesterday, only I couldn’t find […]

V&A museum and unpacking update

This amazing chandelier is a glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly. Last week, I spent a day at the Victoria and Albert Museum. I specifically went to look at the fashion and costume exhibits because Roxi and I are really into sewing right now. Well, gathering ideas for sewing anyway ;-) While I was there, I had […]

GTD: Am I the last person to read this book?

What I’m reading + my battered and beloved Tate Modern mug. Roxi and I took a break from real life yesterday and got haircuts–16 inches off between the two of us! We are feeling lighter and freer now–ready to tackle exams, two more jazz gigs, and moving, of course. BTW, is anyone a devotee of […]

Would you like the see the Pudding Menu?*

A glimpse of Guildford, England. We’re back from England! And luckily we took the train else we’d be stuck on the island. Lots of planes grounded because of the ash cloud. Mr. DJ was supposed to go to Switzerland today for business, but flights out of Amsterdam were cancelled this morning. Anyway, our trip was […]

Our Move from England to Den Haag

I am finally getting around to catching up from the last month! Here are a few pics from our move… Our small and quirky rental. This was our second house in England, our third address. Kind of strange architecture, huh? The front door is on the left side of the house. The house itself looks […]

And more drive by blogging…

Had a great visit with my parents. They were a nice distraction! Roxi’s graduation was wonderful. The weather was perfect, the school’s grounds were just so lovely—we couldn’t have asked for a better way to end our time in England. Roxi went to see “Wicked” one last time with her best friend and another girl […]

NL Move: School? Check. House? Check.

We had a successful trip to The Hague last week. Roxi liked her school–it seems big and modern, the classrooms were bright, and everyone seemed happy and friendly. She is really looking forward to starting High School in the fall! The only drawback is she will start school a week or so earlier since she […]

I’ve been “roasted”! And NL move update

We’re in the middle of a long Bank Holiday weekend here in England. But I wanted to pop in to say the truly generous David McMahon has posted an interview of me on his blog, Authorblog. If you’ve never visited his site before, you’re in for a treat. David is a talented photographer and writer […]

A New Tyre

Friday afternoon, as I was vacuuming up the dog hair in my car’s backseat, I noticed my front right tyre (that would be the driver’s side tire–lol!) had an approximate 15″ split along the side. Yikes! So bright and early Saturday morning, Mr. DJ and I drove around our small town looking for a replacement. […]
