Fort Fred

The 18th century market fair, Fort Fred, was, this year, at the end of April, exceedingly, unseasonably hot. I was pregnant and didn’t want to put myself through wearing a costume with stays, which may not have even fit. (Stays aren’t meant to squeeze the waist, Victorian hourglass style, so I could wear them very loosely laced – but my … Continue Reading →


JWST – Spring 2017

Spring 2017 brought our last looks at JWST for Goddard – I really tried to savor every moment it was right in front of me, because it would soon be leaving forever. I still miss it! Face down: Reflections of Goddard: I managed to get a lot of visitors for a last look before the telescope left. Chelsea (with Miranda … Continue Reading →


Big Ass Hat Tea

I was invited to Jenny-Rose’s Big Ass hat tea in April and it was a lovely time. The food was fantastic, as were the costumes, and it was so nice to see so many people! Thanks for the invitation, Jenny-Rose! I rewore what is now one of my fav jackets – the yellow and white silk I got in Germany. … Continue Reading →


Baltimore Light City

While Conley was in town in early April, we checked out Baltimore Light City, something we’ve never done before. We walked around the Inner Harbor and checked out all the light installations. Had a nice night for it, plus cupcakes, so definitely a win! (Note: the vertical pics are videos – Flickr does a lousy job of embedding them apparently, … Continue Reading →


JWST Friends and Family Day

In April, we had a Friends & Family day for JWST – as well as an Employee Day, where we got to show the telescope off to people at Goddard, and then friends & relatives of people working on the project. Both were really special. My parents were able to come for Friends & Family day, and our friend Conley … Continue Reading →


Cherry Blossoms

Now that the leaves are coming off the trees, let’s head back to when they were just starting to bloom – March – and the cherry blossoms in DC, which we make an effort to try to see yearly. We didn’t hit it on a great day – I normally like a nice blue sky to see the cherry blossoms, … Continue Reading →


Française Dinner, March 2017

A small affair this year. But it was a date and location that were easy for me to go, so I was glad to be able to make it! We were in Annapolis this time – the room was nice, but had some weird red lighting, so my pics aren’t great. I really need to make a new Francaise gown … Continue Reading →


March Ice Storm

In mid-March we had a weird surprise ice storm – I had to run around photograph all the iced over flowers.


JWST Art Exhibit

So, I posted (a while ago now) about an artist event I organized for work – we were kindly offered Visitor Center space – and so the artists all doubled down and created amazing works of art, and we put on an exhibit. I was so impressed and happy that of the artists at our event, only 3 didn’t participate … Continue Reading →


What I was up to, April 2017

On to April! More visitors! My friend Liz from high school – who I haven’t seen since high school! And her daugher! A cat and her shark: Rockets and cherry blossoms! More visitors! Katherine was in town for a party, so she and Taylor came by!


What I Was Up To – March 2017

On to March! Willow really likes the smell of coffee – or creamer… Party hat pikachu was a thing… We had a freakishly early cherry blossom bloom – like early March – and then it got super cold and froze everything. :-/ It was really cold this day we went in. FDR memorial: Portrait Gallery: Pocohantas: Elizabeth I: My 18th … Continue Reading →


What I was up to, February, part 2

February part 2! In DC – I kind of love this light display, especially when it’s showing planets! What ended up being our last meal at Zengo before it suddenly closed down. Still so sad. A visit to Pittsburgh: Seriously, these stuffed cheese pretzels! From the internet: Allen Pond sunset: Sitting between our laptops: Carbonara from scratch: Freeway airport sunset: … Continue Reading →
