It has been cold and stupidly snowing, so all the interesting stuff we were going to do this weekend (and most of last weekend) got cancelled. Alby has mostly been hanging around the house - here he is napping with Bertie:



The good thing is that we got a chance to get most of his album finished while stuck inside yesterday...

Alby is coming to work with me this week - I think we're not allowed to take photos of most of the interesting stuff, but there are some outreach displays in the lobby, like the hyperwall:

Alby visited the Capitol today! It is undergoing repairs and is not so photogenic.


He also saw a lot of neat plants at the US Botanic Gardens, like these lemons


And stopped by the Hirshhorn modern art gallery, where there was lots of weird stuff, like this giant sculpture made from mesh and syrofoam beads.


Tons more pictures on his blog (link in signature)!

Last weekend Alby went for dim sum and met a few other craftsters!

Alby visited the National Gallery of Art today! There are tons of photos on his blog (see link in signature), plus a video of the art installation on the underground walkway in this photo:



The modern art wing is mostly closed for renovations, so he mostly saw earlier works, but we were able to check out the atrium with this massive Calder mobile!

Alby spent a few days in Florida for Christmas - my parents don't really live near anything, and we didn't have time to drive anywhere touristy, so he mostly got to hang out by the pool. Unfortunately it was mostly cloudy and kinda clammy out. We are back in DC now, will try to check out some other stuff this week while I am off work.

Alby visited the National Arborteum this afternoon - it was a bit chilly, but he saw lots of stuff even though it is winter.

There is a nice bonsai museum with lots and lots of bonsai


This bonsai was started in 1625!


It was a good day to take pictures at the Capitol columns (these were originally part of the Capitol building and are now in the middle of a field)


He also got to see the native plants exhibit. In high school (many years ago) I volunteered for two summers at the arboretum. Mostly I helped out with the native plants group, when this prairie was just being installed. At the time, this field was completely bare (tilled), we planted hundreds and hundreds of root stock across this field.

Ha, dancing Rupert is great!

Alby went downtown last night for happy hour, it is hard to get good photos after work now since it is so dark. At least the map in the metro station was lit up:


Tomorrow he is going to a very strange Chinese restaurant and then hopefully we will get to stop by the national arboretum around the corner. Apparently when China was renovating (rebuilding?) their embassy, they bought out an entire hotel to house the imported Chinese workers. This restaurant opened in the bottom of the hotel and serves really authentic Xi'an and Szechuan food, and stayed open after the embassy was finished and all the workers left. So now there is a really great Chinese restaurant in a seedy hotel in a more seedy area of town where there are pretty much absolutely no Chinese people (note to tourists in DC: think twice about that cheap hotel you see way out on New York Ave. Then think a third time if you are still considering it, and check out airbnb instead).

I finally got somewhat caught up on Alby's blog (see link in signature).

He got to hang out with my cats



and helped make a rum cake for a holiday party at work last week
