What I’ve Been Up To, October, part 1

Now on to October! Steve got this one of me and a Machop: This beer was very big. At a German restaurant. Breakfast out at First Watch: Miss Willow: Sunset: Ari Hest at the Woodshop. He asked for requests when he took a break and he played my request! I asked for “I’ve Got You.” Yes, I know it’s portrait … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up to September, Part 2

Let’s go way back to September. Yep, I’m super behind on everything. One has been been playing Pokemon too long when one sees leaves that look like Pikachu. JWST: Celebratory drink – 5 years free of breast cancer: Target painted their giant cement things like Pokeball! This was super fun! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Nice to … Continue Reading →


2016 Year in Review – costumes

I had another personally busy year so I focused mostly on small projects, accessorizing things I already had, wearing things I hadn’t yet worn, repairing things I wore once (ie, taking them in), and trying to finish things I started last year. I was largely successful at that. I wasn’t successful at much else. Small things: – I sewed a … Continue Reading →


Bok Tower

It’s not Thursday, but I’m throwing back, since I posted these photos back in 2009 – and I still think this was a really cool place, and I’m glad to have visited! It’s Bok Tower, in central Florida, which is a beautiful big garden, designed by Frederick Olmstead, with a “Singing Tower,” which has carillon bells. I highly recommend a … Continue Reading →


New song

My band is working on finishing up a few more original tunes for our second album. Here’s our latest. I’m pretty in love with the resonator guitar we used on it.


JWST Media Day

We had a big media day for JWST in early November – the planning for it was totally intense, but it definitely paid off. I helped out where I could, but my big contribution to the day came in the afternoon, when we had an event for artists. I’ll get into that for another post though. :-) The media portion … Continue Reading →


Band gig!

My band used to gig relatively regularly, especially when Kevin, our bass player, was working on the last Hubble servicing mission. He worked for a guy that liked to throw parties (on his own dime), and we played a bunch of them. But after that, two band members started work on a mission where they were in Japan a lot … Continue Reading →


Corn Maze

We managed to get to the corn maze again this year. We did daytime. It was really windy, but it was still really fun. This is what the maze looked like: Alex touching the “udders.” Oh Alex. Most of our group. Somehow Ed got cut out and you can’t really see Stacy. D’oh!


Pumpkin Patch

Pics from our local pumpkin patch from back in October.


2016 Year in Review

As I said in one of my other posts, this was a rough year personally. But there were lots of good things that happened, and frankly, more of them than I had realized. Here’s what I wrote on Facebook. I’ve written and erased various posts about how tough a year 2016 was. It’s hard to figure out a balance between … Continue Reading →


Mini Costume Gala

Carolyn has this gorgeous huge house she is renting in Capitol Hill while she and her husband are here, and she has started throwing some parties to take advantage of it. I’ve been to two of them and she’s also a wonderful hostess. This party was in October. I was really happy Kat came down and stayed with me overnight … Continue Reading →
