Instead of apologizing again for disappearing, I’m just going to share some pictures I snapped since last I posted. I’m feeling rushed in everything I’m doing right now, and I’m just not finding the time to knit, blog, and correspond. Out loud, I’m blaming commuting, but really I think it is just that there’s a lot of noise in my head, so much to do, so much I’m anxious about not doing, so much uncertainty all around. I’m finding it hard to quiet my head at the end of the day. Thanks for understanding if I’m not as present here as I’d like to be while I’m away from my home and regular routine. Sigh.
Want to see some pictures?
Atrium linking the Portrait Gallery and the American Art Museum. Already one of my favorite spots in DC.
Sunset, with the Washington Monument barely visible behind this tree. Snapped moments after leaving work for the day.
My new Constitution mug, a must-have for all Americanists — and a birthday present.
Another birthday mug — my friends know me well. This one was accompanied by some fancy espresso powder for baking. Stay tuned for kitchen adventures with that!
Birthday flowers from K., who is dear to me and far away. I’ve been enjoying them every morning alongside my coffee and cereal.
Sculpture Garden. I love this tree.
The Capitol on a sunny day.
The Portrait Gallery at night.
Happy weekend — and happy knitting! I’m hoping to do a little bit this afternoon.
