Project 365: Day 261

I know this is cheating, because I obviously got this from here. But today was a bad day. I did not want to photograph literally anything that wasn't insanely sad. So you get this, which is MUCH MORE AWESOME.

Project 365: Day 260

So, I did a bad thing. I bought the Sims. And then I made my housemates. And then Prakhar set the kitchen on fire (fortunately, only in Sim-land and not real life!)

Project 365: Day 259

Fantasy Baseball draft and Yale NCAA hockey on the radio, with slow-cooker pot roast that James kindly brought up for me. I didn't leave this desk for a rather long time!

Spring in Baltimore! Taken from a red light that had just turned green. Oops. :-)

Project 365: Day 253

Finally! A variant of Malacca Laksa! For more, see today's post on my cooking blog, Cooking 601. Also sorry about the colors here. I couldn't get it quite right in the stormy grey/yellow kitchen light tonight.

I made dumplings. Yummm.

Project 365: Day 251

This was my craft project for today: felting soap! I saw this, and got inspired! So I tried to make my own. Of course it didn't turn out exactly the way I thought it should, but it still looks nice. :-)

Project 365: Day 250

Wow. 250 days! That's crazy. Hard to believe that this project should be almost over! Of course it's been rather more than 250 days since I began, but I guess this is the home stretch now!

Project 365: Day 248

Spring moonlight (and odd purple light-- which was really there, I swear) over Homewood. Sadly captured leaving the library late at night after being there for 12 hours.

Project 365: Day 247

We went to the Udvar-Hazy branch of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. It was awesome. They have a space shuttle there! It is reallly, really, really big. They've also got all kinds of planes and artifacts and rockets and missiles. Good stuff. 

Then we went to lunch. It was fantastic, and quite an adventure. :-D

Project 365: Day 246

We decided to walk into the historical area of Williamsburg, as it seemed rather more appropriate than driving or taking the bus. When you cross out of the visitors center, you encounter this delightful plaque:

 We had a lovely time, enjoying the hearty colonial rain. So kind of them to bring in historically accurate weather just for us! Then, I put AJ in the gaol of Virginia for not going to church often enough.

Project 365: Day 245

The Governor's Palace at Williamsburg. A gorgeous building, inside and out, and a fascinating way to highlight the class disparities in the colonial town.
The Bruton Parish Church. I was really excited, because we got to go to Mass here, and worship in the same building that many of America's founding fathers did. The first church was built there in 1660, and this one was restored as the first building to be returned to colonial appearances around the turn of the (2oth) century. The parish was once home to Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Richard Henry Lee, George Wythe, Patrick Henry, and George Mason. More history here!
These were the two most moving graves in the town, as far as I'm concerned. I'm not sure how clearly you can see it, but the inscription on each simply reads "Confederate Soldier" and gives the year of death, 1862.

Project 365: Day 244

AJ poses with a suspect suit of armor at the self-proclaimed "World's Largest Bizarre Bazaar". I'm not sure about Bizarre, but it sure was a bazaar!

Project 365: Day 243

Poor, poor AJ. So sleepy.

Project 365: Day 242

AJ being a goofball, asking for a hug while making the bed.

Project 365: Day 240

I'd been craving a waffle for a really long time. Finally, I got one!

Project 365: Day 239

Ah, how I adore the Maryland MVA.... One gem: The lady behind me: "Over in Glen Burnie they got a building A, a building B, a building C, a building D... I learned alphabets in school but I don't need to *use* 'em." 
But that part of the day quickly enough segued into this part, which was heavenly.

Project 365: Day 238

I believe this speaks for itself.

Ok, not the best photograph ever. But IT IS WARM. THERE IS SUN. NO CLOUDS. YESSSS.

Project 365: Day 232

This weekend, I got this sweet blanket from CBH and these sweet cookies from Jackie. Win! Except that they didn't quite compensate for losing my wallet, my watch stopping and my necklace breaking.
