Making my way home

WordPress ate my post, it seems. So here, have some pictures instead. I’ve been traveling enough that I bought amusing socks specifically for going through security. This trip: Oklahoma City, for a combination of professional conference and project planning meeting. I stayed at the Colcord, Oklahoma City’s oldest skyscraper. The building’s twelve stories were quite […]

You are here

My iPad is full of pictures. I should blog that. Click. The blogpeople should see this. Click. I want to show that off. Click. You see how successful that’s been. I’m once again horribly swamped, and traveling a lot as well. I intend to tell you about all these adventures in more detail, but in […]

Tuesday morning

Morgan and I are doing a bit of blogging this morning. (taken from the netbook’s camera to demonstrate the general way in which Morgan is helping) It’s 28F warmer than yesterday morning, but still cold enough that the cat wants to spend all his time glued to me and I’m having a hard time getting […]


Complex Weavers was wonderful as always. I was very excited to be teaching this year for the first time. I didn’t finish my class until the night before (more on that later, but it’s a good thing I was teaching on the last day). I taught a “Tablet Weaving Tour,” a show-and-tell class with lots […]

I am here

Don’t you wish you were too?


I was in New Hampshire most of last week for work [now the week before last!]. Work looks a lot like this: We worked a couple of 13-hour days in torrential pollen and got home a day early. Everyone was happy to see me. After an intense week I was ready to relax a bit, […]

It’s green out there

I spent the week in southern Pennsylvania training field staff from all over the US in plant identification. We had plenty of eager onlookers. After two consecutive weeks of travel, I’m happy to be home again until mid-May. This last photo was an accident, but I kind of like it.

Blink and you’ll miss it

Which appears to be what I did, more or less. I was in Georgia for a week for a conference. What little I saw of the outside world was lovely. But when I left Pennsylvania, it was warm but things were just starting to come up. I returned to this: It snowed Friday evening, but […]

Monday, Monday

It was hard to get out of bed this morning: gray, wet, dreary. I had a dog draped across my ankles, and a cat on my chest. Nick suggested I might suddenly develop a horrid 24-hour bug. For all I got done at work today I might as well have stayed home. Paperwork, filing, email: […]


My brother Nathan is quite a bit younger than I am – enough so that when I moved out of the house for college he was also shorter than me. Not so any more. (Nick is the shorter one, and he’s not actually short.) It was rather interesting seeing Nathan once or twice a year, […]
