Ask an Expat: Weather in May and June

A beautiful March sky in Den Haag. Last week, Alinda asked: We’re spending 2 months in Europe beginning mid-may. (our 1st time too) We’ll be camping a lot because we’re frugal and we love the outdoors. I’m wondering just how much it really rains in northern Europe and Britain. How much (dry) camping is possible? Thanks! Alinda, oh […]

A bit of “Texas” on this side of the pond

Whew! It’s been hot and humid here in Den Haag lately. For all y’all Texans, think late May. The temps have been in the high 80s, low 90s, but we don’t have AC of any sort. So add in full sun, high humidity and very little wind, and we’re talking some borderline miserable weather. Guys […]

Danger: do not oogle the newborn lambs whilst driving

I wish I had a photo for you. On my way to the airport yesterday morning, I noticed that the sheep along side the motorway had company. BABIES! And oh, they were adorable–they couldn’t be very old. Maybe a few days? It is hard to sigh over them at 70 MPH, though. All of the […]

Remembering to breathe

We’ve been having incredible weather lately! I’ve been tempted to put away the sweaters, but A Modern Mother warned me not to quite yet. What an interesting month it has been so far! The weather has been divine these last two-ish weeks. I was telling a friend of mine that it’s like someone came in and […]

Eeww. It’s raining.

Last night before I went to bed, I was watching the snow fall. Actually, it started out as sleet, then tiny specks, then big, fat fluffy flakes. It was very peaceful, and I went to sleep with my fingers crossed for another snow day. At 6 AM, I woke up and my dreams of another […]

Snow, snow, hidely-ho

Trudy wishes Stella, Edward, Molly and Josey could come to play. Snow is so fun! I made this video yesterday, btw. No snow predicted for tomorrow. But there is more snow in the forecast for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Mr. DJ took the Eurostar to the Continent yesterday afternoon. He gave up on the airport, especially […]

Q: What happens when cold air from Siberia hits warm, moist air from France?

SNOW Day in England! It started snowing last night about 8 PM. When Mr. DJ left for the airport this morning at 4:45 AM, there was quite a nice blanket of the stuff already on the ground. He was supposed to take off at 7:00, but the flight was cancelled. He was thinking of going […]

London: The Globe Theatre and “We Will Rock You”

One thing you learn quickly when living in England is: if the sun shines, go out! We haven’t been into London as a family for a while, so when the sun came out Saturday morning, London was our destination. Roxi wanted to go to the Globe Theatre gift store to buy a few little leather-bound […]

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 […]

Thoughts on Going "Home"

View from our hotel room. Ten days. It didn’t sound that long when we were planning it, but our schedule was so tightly packed that it seemed like we had been in Texas for about a month by the time we left on New Year’s day. Some visiting highlights included: five days with my parents […]
