I took Poe to the Portland Art Museum yesterday!


This one is from the Japanese clay exhibit.

Lots more photos at Poe's blog: http://poeinvb.blogspot.com/2015/03/portland-art-museum.html

Today is just conference stuff so I don't know how interesting it will be for Poe.

Poe and I flew to Portland today! I'm not good at the whole flying thing (I've really got to try Dramamine) so we're taking it easy (see his post about our room service here: http://poeinvb.blogspot.com/2015/03/room-service.html) but during our layover in ATL, we found a neat public art installation:



His blog post about that is here: http://poeinvb.blogspot.com/2015/03/atl.html

There will be LOTS to post about after tomorrow!

Poe is here! I didn't realize our tiny apartment mailbox could accommodate him, so I didn't check the box yesterday. Lo and behold, I check this morning, and there he is!!! We leave for Portland on Tuesday so he arrived with plenty of time!

Edit: (How am I sideways?!?) Forgot to mention Poe's blog! http://poeinvb.blogspot.com/ There's a photo of him with the kitty on there.

24  Re: Little Visitor Swap- Round 21 (SU till 03/24 or full, SO 03/30 and 09/08) in ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED by Alexampersandra on: March 17, 2015 06:07:26 AM
I have a special request!!! If anyone wants to sign up WITH me, your LV will get to go on my week-long trip to Portland, Oregon as well. The catch is, your LV has to get to me by Monday (3/23) at the very latest, since I'll be on a plane 5am the next day. (I'll be gone 3/24-31 so either I'm sending early with a pre-signed-up-with partner, or I'm sending a day late when I get home.)

Some highlights of my summer that your LV will get to experience with me include:
- The trip to Portland, of course (art museum, food carts, Saturday Market, conference, Mt Hood, Pearl District, etc.)
- Tidewater Comicon (in cosplay, of course!)
- Lots of library time, since I'm a librarian
- Historical sites from colonial America (we're just up the road from Jamestown)
- Fairfax, Virginia at least once
- middle-of-nowhere Idaho for a family reunion on the Snake River
- Virginia Beach oceanfront & public art

First come, first served  Grin I don't have any preferences as to where Anana goes - anywhere will be an adventure! - and we have no allergies or food restrictions (except not being fond of tomatoes, which I don't imagine will be relevant) so we're open to anything!

And here's our photo! Festively enjoying St. Patrick's Day!

Anana is home (has been for a couple days, I just had to take a moment to move photos from phone to computer). And he brought all sorts of cool stuff home from Hawaii (including warmer weather, which is greatly appreciated).


Here we have (from top-ish to bottom-ish): a wee little origami crane in a little box for display (which is already on my desk at work); three Hawaii magnets (also already at work); a Hawaii pen, a hoop of the Hawaii state fish (hanging over my calendar at work now); and playing cards, on top of a stack of magazines and programs related to Anana's trip.


Then there's this gorgeous bag sewn from local fabrics, the magazines/programs fanned out (with the shopping bag from the Dole Plantation) and an ENORMOUS scrapbook!!! Not pictured is the stack of leftover photos that didn't make it into the huge scrapbook, which is also beautifully made!


And Anana brought this cute little flower home for me, too. Welcome home, Anana! And THANK YOU Mountains & Clouds!!!

(Not sure why my photos keep coming out sideways...)

We went out and played in the snow today, since we didn't do it yesterday.

We are currently on snow day number two (Virginia Beach really can't handle more than an inch or two of snow, we just aren't equipped for it) which means we aren't going back to Norfolk this week for training. BUT it means snow pictures! Also, last night we went down the street to a friend's house for D&D night!

Last week, a tree in my in-laws' yard fell down during a windy night. We were over there for dinner last night, so we headed out to take a look!



It's also on the blog, with a photo of me for better scale:

Everyone at work seems to be passing around a really terrible stomach virus, and I've had it for the past week, so Ipo hasn't gotten to do much fun stuff. I made him a biohazard suit though, so he can help take care of me:

SNOW!!!



I know the whole northeast is basically on lockdown but we're JUST below that terrible line on the map keeping the worst of it around Richmond and further north. We got about an inch and none of it stuck to the roads, just the grass and the cars (and, something I found amusing, street signs going in one direction on the road because of the wind angle last night... hope nobody's looking for a certain street this morning!). Basically nothing got shut down here, but we expect ten inches next Monday (which is practically unheard of around here... we freak out if one inch sticks, so ten should be... let's call it "interesting").
