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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

1. I will post more tropical pics soon, because I haven’t shown you any photos from St. Thomas yet (come on, you know you want to see them!) but first I have to resize and upload said photos, something I haven’t had time to do this weekend, despite having an extra day off due to […]

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 […]

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…

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 […]
