Zentangle peace on earth card

Those of you who are my Facebook friends know that two weeks prior to leaving on our recent five week around the world trip, I was loading the dishwasher and ended up with excruciating back spasms for no reason that was obvious to me. It was so bad I had to call my sleeping husband […]

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge #21 – Thankful on Thanksgiving Edition

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge

I’m afraid this is another late Hump Day Zentangle Challenge. For my non-United Stateser readers, we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November. I’ve had my post Thanksgiving dinner nap (also a national tradition), and am therefore once again feeling sufficiently compos mentis to write. Thanksgiving has been celebrated on […]

Zentangle circles

Those in the Hump Day Zentangle Challenge Facebook group know that last week I did not post a challenge because I was feeling overwhelmed by my 94 year old mother’s situation. She fell and broke a hip a week ago on Saturday. She underwent surgery the following day and on Wednesday, she was discharged from […]

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge

Two weeks ago we were reveling in spring flowers in Australia. Fast forward 9,864 miles (15,875 kilometers) and we’re ensconced back in a Philly fall (autumn) on the east coast of the United States. We live in Center City Philadelphia. I haven’t been all that impressed by the fall foliage colors this year — a […]

Our Visit to Perth, Western Australia This week’s Hump Day Zentangle Challenge #17 is dedicated to the lovely city of Perth in Western Australia.

Athens Greece Acropolis, Parthenon at night

I’m sorry. I just couldn’t resist the cheesy title of this week’s Hump Day Zentangle Challenge. We have been on the move and are now in the second country of our five week trip around the world. I am writing this from Bulgaria, and it looks like I need to admit that I missed a […]

In last Wednesday’s Hump Day Zentangle challenge, I was feeling all light-hearted about our upcoming flight to Athens to begin our five week around the world trip. Our plan was to fly from Athens to Chania on the Greek island of Crete. We did end up on Crete, but two days later than planned because […]

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge Clouds

A frequent theme on Boomeresque is “Time Flies”. Well, this week we’re flying for real, leaving on the first of 11 jet planes. When I married Mr./Dr. Excitement, I didn’t realize his career would result in many travel opportunities. I thought I was marrying a physician. Indeed, there were many years of 3:00 a.m. calls. […]

Most Americans (United Statesers) in my demographic remember where we were when three major events in the life of our country happened: President Kennedy was assassinated; Neil Armstrong walked on the moon; and, on 9/11. (I realize most of the rest of the world thinks of it as 11/9). Where Were You on 9/11/2001? I […]
