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

All right, we have a lot of ground to cover so here we go back into October. (And I do this so I can remember what the heck I’ve spent my life on, so please humor me!) Here’s Willow doing her thing where she likes to lay on our clothes: So we were out for an evening walk and saw … Continue Reading →


One-Pot Butternut Squash Alfredo

I spotted this on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/buzzfeedtasty/videos/1642417172677592/ We tried and it was really really good! Below is the recipe, they provided, but I made the following modifications: We used twice the amount of onions (mostly because we had it and didn’t want to waste it and onions are delicious). We only used 1 tsp of brown sugar because I prefer savory … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up to – October, Part 1

Soooo…. it’s been busy. Let’s see if I can remember what I did in October! Here’s Willow on her favorite seat: Though honestly, she can be comfortable anywhere: She prefers cracks: Here’s my Halloween fireplace mantle: More Halloween! My Haunted Mansion plate! So this…. Doug and I were out for dinner and he got texts from me. But I wasn’t … Continue Reading →


The Phantom Menace: Transcript of Cut Scenes

For your enjoyment, a parody fic my friend Mike V. and I wrote years and years ago, I think even before Episode II came out? Maybe? It is a loving spoof of both Episode I and working for the government, and I was surprised how well it holds up. And just how well it sticks to actual dialogue from the … Continue Reading →


Halloween 2015

I wore my new A League of Their Own baseball uniform to my friend’s Halloween party this year. I made it in the spring but missed my opportunity to wear it with my friend Gloria because of some health issues during AwesomeCon. But I was able to wear it here. It was really fun to wear, actually. Comfortable and all … Continue Reading →


Nov 2 Sunset

November 2, just after I found out that an astronaut co-worker has stage 4 pancreatic cander, we saw this beautiful golden sunset. It was bittersweet. (ETA: He wrote this powerful op-ed: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/17/opinion/sunday/cancer-and-climate-change.html?smid=tw-share) Alex worshipping the fire orb: Group selfie with the fire orb: Somehow we got Don in a picture – AND he’s not rolling his eyes!


Washington International Horse Show

I’m super behind on posting things. I’ve been so busy at work I hardly have room to breathe lately and exhausted at night. And busy on the weekends. Anyhoo – back in October we went to the Washington International Horse Show in DC with Mike and Gloria. I really enjoyed it – it was really fun and I also really … Continue Reading →


Pumpkin Patch again

We went back to the pumpkin patch a second time to actually get pumpkins (rather than to look for butterflies with friends) (cause that is a thing we do apparently):


Corn Maze

This year we decided to do the corn maze at night, just to be different. We got there before dark so we could get food and enjoy a bit of the weather. It was super pretty! We got a group selfie: Craig took this one: Ah, there we go! With my new Norwegian lua (hat): We had these two small … Continue Reading →


Pumpkin Patch

We went to the Pumpkin Patch after we tromped around Glendening Wildlife Preserve with friends. Sheep!


Glendening Nature Preserve ^5

We had yet another beautiful fall day in early October, while our friend Conley was in town, so our friend Tim asked if we wanted to go for a hike at Glendening. We did! Conley and Doug had just done the Army 10 Miler in DC, but walking is good for the legs post race. We tried not to go … Continue Reading →


Baltimore Regency Dinner

Last month, we joined a bunch of other friends for an evening in Baltimore. A subset of our group toured Fort McHenry and went on one of the tall ships. But we just had so much going on in October and I was exhausted. So we decided just to go into the city for dinner. Our friend Conley was in … Continue Reading →
