Caribbean Adventure: Part the Sixteenth

Happy Leap Year!
Here’s one last post about my trip. I can’t say you’ve totally heard the end of it after this, because I bet some of the photos I haven’t shown yet will appear as Daily Art Thangs, but we’re in the home stretch.
After we’d wandered around St. Thomas as much as we […]

Caribbean Adventure: Part the Forty-gazillionth (or Fifteenth…whatevah!)

Before we start on more vacation pics and stories, I just have to say to those of you who were coveting our snow yesterday, my dears, if I could package it up and send big, heaping PILES of this s*** to you, I would do it!!!! We got more of this junk yesterday and last […]

To Whom it May Concern

Dear WeatherGods:
This was what I saw out my back door at 8:00 AM today:

I feel the need to express something to you, dear WeatherGods.
ENOUGH ALREADY!!! Gaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
With deep and abiding sincerity,
Not a SnowBunny
Here is where I’m wishing I lived this morning. How could anyone have the muddy taupes living in a hobbit house??
And I’d like the […]

Self-Portrait Challenge: Blue, week 4

People talk about having the blues, and I must admit I’m a bit prone to them myself this time of year. February always seems to be particularly trying for me, with its short, cold, gray days - all too often windy and spitting snow, sleet, or other assorted unpleasant substances. By this time of year, […]

Random Items from the Junk Drawer of my Mind #83

A Night at the Oscars

I’m soooooo late posting anything today that I don’t know how many people will even see this, but I’m determined to post every day, so here we go.
Those of you who’ve been visiting here for a while may remember that I told you last year about a little game some friends and I […]

One Word Only

I’m running behind on life this morning, so I’m falling back on a meme snagged from Amy, even though sticking to only one word answers makes me feel like my head is going to explode. Ahem. Here’s the rules o’ the game:
One Word…
(It is not as easy as it looks)
1. Where is your cell phone? […]

Caribbean Adventure: Part the Fourteenth (Zipline, baby!)

When we finally got off the ship on the island of St. Maarten, this is how we got around Philipsburg - water taxi!

Actually, I’d have called them more like “water buses” because each one held bunches of people, but still, they were pretty cool. You could go to any of several water taxi stations around […]
