This wasn’t one of my worst ideas, but I have a sneaky suspicion I’m going to be overrun with bell pepper plants in a few weeks!

Spring Fling, Instagram Style?

As many local instagram feeds are now showing, it was a long winter with random days of heat, but we’re finally through it. Signs of spring are showing up in the DC area, and we’re now on the lookout for...

Point Cloud at The Yards Park

I missed the opening night of Light Yards but I took a few shots of Point Cloud this morning on my way in to the office. The sunrise was a lovely fiery burst on the horizon and framed the piece...

It’s Just Not Cricket, Nature!

Flashback to a few years ago when I had broken up with a live-in boyfriend, had a new apartment with a lovely patio and was trying to enjoy the change of seasons… I might respect all living creatures, but sorry...

fitness: Day One

Some people go all fitness-crazy in January. I am clearly not one of those people… Honestly, yesterday was Day One, but if I’d said it on April Fools Day, who would have believed me? Then again, who believes me now?...

snow: The Late Late Late Frost

in DC: allergen masochist

I’ve been in DC over 10 years, and I go each year. I know what they look like, I’ve seen them in rain and shine, and it still doesn’t matter. You have to see the Cherry Blossoms. Even though ever...

office: it has its moments

The actual work still sucks most of the time, but our building is actually quite pretty at times. A colleague was walking past the atrium windows, saw a chair, the sun and an opportunity. It was fairly cold in the...

random: sweet tears?

Just curious… to those artificial sweetener users out there: have you ever actually purchased a box, bag, etc. of the sweetener you prefer? Or are your stocks at home, office and in purse solely filled by grabbing–either a few extra...

walking: 8 mile

I’m gonna need to work my way up to doing that again, truly. Every now and then, when we’ve had a really nice weather weekend in the midst of winter, a bunch of friends would go for a little walk...

weather: uh…, whut?

So, that was Monday. And by Saturday, we’ll be seeing temps nearly in the 70s. Perhaps this is just a fitting reward from Nature for our losing an hour on Sunday. After the week I’ve had, I need my weekend,...
