Fall 2009: What I'm falling for lately...

>> Ares I-X!

Hurray! NASA announced today that it is targeting October 27th for the launch of Ares I-X...and I am totally ready!

This may or may not be a picture of me sporting, not only an Ares I-X sticker patch, but also an Ares I-X pin and NASA shirt with the blow up space shuttle making a guest appearance!!!




>>My NASA Project

...yes, we are finally building our plane!!!

...and it's going to be awesome!!!!

>> My Bellchoirs!

We have been playing a lot more this fall...and they impress me more and more every time! I'm so proud of the hard work they put in...and I appreciate all the fun we have during rehearsals!!

(P.S. they aren't just a bunch of Ding-a-lings!! Well, ok maybe they are, but they are MY Ding-a-lings and I love them!)

>>The Weather

Ok, maybe it's not quite "fall" weather, but today it was only 99...definitely getting cooler!


>>This picture from Astronomy Picture of the Day... (29 September 2008)




This digital mosaic shows the night sky as seen from False Kiva in Canyonlands National Park, eastern Utah, USA. I think I want to go there...spalunking...just to find this spot and see something this incredible!

Side Note: Chris actually found this picture...sometimes when we don't have a lot to talk about we sit around and try to find the coolest space pictures on Astronomy Picture of the Day....yes it's nerdy, but that's why I love him :-) Good job Chris!
