What I was up to – June 2017

At the beginning of June, we hit the Annapolis Greek Festival and got our gyro on:

This friend of a friend got a nice review for her book in Entertainment Weekly! We had dinner with her and my friend Hannah when Hannah was in town for a poetry convention. Hannah was the poet who was a part of the JWST art event! Months later, I spotted this review and I realized it was Hannah’s friend! She had told us about her book at dinner and it sounded really interesting.

We rescued this baby dove – he was on our front porch, injured with no nest nearby. We were afraid predators would get him. We were able to take him to a rescue. I hope they were able to rehab him.

I finally checked out the JWST pathfinder (test version of the telescope with 2 test mirrors) that is sitting in our cleanroom now that the flight is gone.
