I haven’t posted about stuff going on lately, so let’s have a picture post!

Snow!

My mom sent me these old pictures of me with our neighbors collie, Shanna.

Doug and my ongoing quest to try the recipes in the Disney Food and Wine cookbook. These are the South Korea lettuce wraps with roast pork and kimchi slaw. So good.

Some winter colors. I think we’ve had enough of these.

My officemate and two of our friends chucked snowballs at our office window. Ruffians!

When I got back from Florida, this was all the snow that was left:

And the first crocuses bloomed:

The next day it snowed. And I had car problems.

Here’s a peek into the cleanroom – here is the flight Near Infrared Spectrograph instrument for JWST:

We took an artfully posed picture of our communications team for JWST by the cleanroom. We have a couple people missing, but this is most of us.

My Christmas cactus:

When it’s cold, which it often was this winter, the big glass windows of our building frost up in neat patterns:

And then it was back to winter again – so I made a key lime pie!

It was surprisingly easy! And no, I didn’t make the crust:

We had King Cake for Mardi Gras at tea at work, as is tradition:

This photo of happier times was posted to Facebook. This was the RPG Aaron ran for us. I feel lucky to have been there.

Laura and I gave a couple of tag team talks on JWST at the NASA Social for the GPM satellite. This pic got posted on twitter and it was pointed out to me that I was reflected in the mirror to the left of Laura!

This is an old picture of Sara and I at Goddard when we helped science rapper shoot his black hole video:

My friend/bass player Kevin and his wife got to hang out in the studio with the band Carbon Leaf. Here they are with our band’s CD!

Kevin’s cat Raoul:

Here’s Ringo, I mean Rob, and I playing Battleship (with some help from Raoul) while Rich is recording some guitar licks. We didn’t have a chess set.

Raoul curled up in my lap with his leg over his head. He wasn’t washing himself, just apparently is comfortable like that. Silly kitty.

And then he sacked out on my guitar case:

You know what kind of meetings are the best? The ones with cupcakes! Barb made these rainbow “pot of gold” cupcakes and they were awesome. This was the Friday before St. Patricks Day, which was a Monday, and as it turned out, a snowday.

Ok, to be continued!
