Disney Weekend, part 3

Our last morning! Post race, we headed back into the resort. Doug and I last minute got a reservation for breakfast at the Cape May cafe! Yay Mickey waffles! You could eat all the tiny crepes you wanted! After breakfast, we walked around the Yacht Club for a while and then managed to meet up with everyone else who was … Continue Reading →

Disney Weekend, part 2

Day 2 at Disney – we hit Animal Kingdom first thing in the morning and got right on Everest. Doug was even brave enough to snap a picture and not lose his phone! Breakfast of champions: Our view: I think this is Conley’s pic from over at Hollywood Studios – Captain Phasma! Then back to Epcot for lunch. Spicy Hot … Continue Reading →

Disney Weekend, part 1

Doug and I took our first vacation since the previous July, and after a bunch of rough personal stuff (which included a very sick cat that precluded any time out of town), we finally got away for a weekend. Many, many thanks to my parents for staying with Willow for most of the weekend. Doug was running the Star Wars … Continue Reading →

May, part 2. Here’s the beautiful art my friend Dawn Murphy did for me for my story in Contact Light. I

What I’ve Been Up To – May, part 1

Look at me, almost sort of catching up on stuff! Here’s May, part 1. Kitty! May, and Willow is still with us! We had the science consultant for the X-files speak at Goddard, and it was super fun! She was a really good speaker. And it was really fun to hear how she got involved with the show. Short version, … Continue Reading →

Wine Country Wild Berry Cobbler

We bought another (non Food & Wine) cookbook at Disney and Doug made this berry cobbler (with drop biscuit top) and it was AMAZING. The biscuits were a little sweet and just perfect. So good. Recipe: http://www.wdwfanzone.com/2012/11/wine-country-wild-berry-cobbler-november-2012/ Here it was before it went into the oven: Doug starting out the day:

Cherry Blossoms 2016

We made sure to catch the cherry blossoms in DC this year – they bloomed almost 2 weeks earlier than last year! We went on a week day just a day before peak and it ended up being just absolutely perfect weather. It was a gorgeous day. They had these so we had to take pics:

What I’ve Been Up To – April

Here’s April! I started things out (or ended March) with a norovirus that struck really suddenly and violently. I was SO sick. I threw up so badly that I broke all the blood vessels around my eyes. It was crazy. So bad. I’m not sure I’ve ever been that sick since I was a kid. 24 hours later I was … Continue Reading →

Francaise dinner 2016

I’m very belated posting about this, but better late than never. This March was the Francaise dinner! Stephanie, Gloria, and I hosted again, and we also again had it at Gadsby’s Tavern in Alexandria. Next year the torch will be passed to someone else, and we look forward to seeing what the next one looks like! And now, photos! Not … Continue Reading →

What I’ve Been Up To – March, part 2

Doug and I met up with my oldest friend, Alicia (we’ve known each other since we were babies) for dinner in DC – we tried Ambar, which is a Balkan restaurant at Eastern Market. The food was amazing! It was small plates so we got to try a lot of different things. This was probably my favorite thing we had. … Continue Reading →

What I’ve Been Up To – March, part 1

How about some pictures? We start off on Leap Day. I walked into our little break room and saw that someone had done this to an old printer and made an homage to Office Space with the Goddard Godzillas: I thought… I can do better than this. I dug out my Office Space kit and fixed it. Click on the … Continue Reading →

What I’ve Been Up To – February, part 2

February part 2! Still going to be lots of cat pictures. My high school friend, her science-loving son, and her father-in-law came for another visit to see JWST! She happened to be in town, so it was really nice that they were able to come by! By this point, Willow had her feeding tube out, and just had a bandage … Continue Reading →
