Such a sad-looking, dry rain garden. I hope it’s ready for when the rain comes back!
This phone is no longer welcome on the second floor of our house (where the two rooms have now been converted to home offices). There’s way too many spam calls during the day, and it’s conference presentation season (ACS & others...)
We found a hidden gem today (Best of Philly's Most Overlooked Tourist Attraction!). If you are looking for a spot to learn some more U.S. history that is outdoors and plenty of space to socially/physically distance, you'll want to check out Fort Mifflin. On the Delaware and right next to the PHL airport, this National Historic Landmark is the only fort in Philadelphia and was first built in 1771 by the British to protect Philadelphia. I never knew we had a "Pennsylvania Navy" flag (which still flies above the fort). Bring a picnic lunch, bring your binoculars for wonderful bird/wildlife viewing, and wear boots/shoes you don't mind getting a little wet (it is called Mud Island for a reason...).
Excited to start the fall semester as a Faculty Athletic Representative to the @psubrandywine Women’s Volleyball team! Volleyball was an important part of my high school years (pictured here as co-captain of the Plainville High School Blue Devils, number 12) and undergrad/graduate years with intramurals and pick-up games. Looking forward to connecting with the coach & players soon & supporting @psubwsports student athletes
To connect with the new Drawdown DCIS series at the Delaware County Institute of Science, each month I'll be creating a mini-quilt for my front door that celebrates the sectors of climate solutions from @ProjectDrawdown and the topic from that month's DCIS lecture.
