What I’ve Been Up To, September, part 1

Cruising into September… Yes, it was the summer of Pokemon Go. This still cracks me up over a month later. My friend Meredith told me there was a Pikachu in our stairwell at lunch – and then there was Alex… Stephanie and Mat came to visit at work: The Godzillas. I think one is mugging the other. Another sunset at … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To, August, part 2

Back to August! For a while we had a good view of the back of JWST! That is where the science instruments are: I got a JWST shirt (thanks, Tanya! Which I’m hoping they will reprint – they have a lot of requests to do so, so keep them coming! I got an even better picture later, but you’ll have … Continue Reading →


ten albums that made an impact on me

This was a meme from two years ago but I kind of like lists of things, so why not. So – ten albums that made an impact on me… I didn’t choose any greatest hits compilations (though I wanted to) and I tried to stick to one album per band. Though I cheated slightly on two different bands from one … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To, August, part 1

And now August… Sunset at Allen Pond: Hanging with my girl: Our crepe myrtle survives! My girl in Prisma: Jasmin, my former intern-for-a-week sent me this little pic of her with a Robert Goddard rocket! She found one in the UK!


What I’ve Been Up To, July, part 2

Back to July. It wasn’t so long ago was it? That was when the Pokemon craze started. It was really fun looking around work to see what was a Pokestop. Like John Mather’s Nobel Prize. The Goddard Godzillas are still around. I don’t know if this one is rapeling or is being thrown over. Pretty twilight on a neighborhood walk: … Continue Reading →

Glendening Butterfly Garden in June

Continuing the backlog of blog posts… Back in June we checked out the Glendening Butterfly garden to see how it progressing – normally we go a bunch in the fall. It was not bad though and we did catch a few butterflies.


Victorian Seaside Party

Because of our family vacation getting switched to August due to one niece becoming a teacher and getting out of school late, I had the silver lining of getting to go to Kat’s Victorian picnic, which this year had a Seaside theme. It was nautical and really fun. At first I wasn’t sure what I had that would work, costume-wise, … Continue Reading →


AwesomeCon

Feeling kind of down today, so maybe a post about some happy stuff. How about AwesomeCon? This was a Con I have meant to attend multiple times. Last year health issues kept me away. This year I had organized a science panel for work, so dammit, I was going! The plan was Saturday afternoon panel, and then dinner with Mike … Continue Reading →


Abbey Road on the River

Ok, let’s time travel back to May and what is always one of the highlights of my year, Abbey Road on the River. Though I missed not having Janine there, one of my other besties, Katie was – and my Norwegian friends were also there, so I was a happy girl. It’s not a huge secret that things have been … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To, July 2016, part 1

Let’s move on to July, shall we? Because it will soon be September and I’m behind again. Here’s our Miss Willow, back on July 1 – she is still doing very well. Behind her, sadly, Larry Wilmore. I’m pretty bummed about the cancellation of The Nightly Show. I think it was a really important voice to have right now, and … Continue Reading →


A special JWST moment

I have a veritable ton of photos to share of JWST because it has been a hugely eventful spring with much of the construction of the actual telescope part of it coming together right here. Some of the photos I’ve been posting in my little reports of what I get up to each month. But this one is special so … Continue Reading →
