During the school year, I'm thrilled if I have a clean table cloth on the dining table. Now that I find I have leisure again, I'm drawn to more creative domesticity. I have been buying one bunch of various flowers and breaking it into mini bouquets & arranging them around my house. This activity feels a million miles from research papers and practicum reflections.
Susan & Martin gave me this orchid and Molly painted the leopard in the background.

Well, I could apoligize for how long it's been since I posted, but since I notice that many of my friends have been off and on during the summer, let's just say I'm part of a trend.
First, our trip to Maryland, to see my parents and the sights.
Photo one: John in the creek behind my folks house. They don't live in the country, just a middle class suburb (Silver Spring). This reminds me that San Diego is a desert, after all.
Photo two: We pay a call on our nation's leader. The lights were on, but nobody was home.
Photo three: Molly, John and Bill had a vip tour of NASA's Goddard Space Center, courtesy of a dear friend of CJs. They saw many wonderous things and talked to space engineers, scientists, and astronauts.
Photo four: Another hightlight was a visit to the National Air and Space Museum. We are without a doubt, a family of geeks.
