097/366: Long Live the Queen

SteelyKid’s taekwondo competition was the most time-consuming event of yesterday, but not the most stressful. Before we went down to Duanesburg for the tournament, Emmy gave us a bit of a scare. Emmy is not by any stretch a young dog– she was a year old when we got her in 2003, so she’s 13–…

096/366: SilverKid!

I feel a little bad that I’m doing two photo-of-the-day posts in a row that are just pictures of SteelyKid, but my day today was dominated by a taekwondo tournament down in Duanesburg, SteelyKid’s first actual competition. And she got second place: This is somewhat less impressive than you might think, because she was in…

095/366: Second-Grade Movember

Both SteelyKid’s elementary school and her after-school day care had “book fairs” this week. These include a bunch of display cases full of books at various reading levels, and also a couple of tables of plastic toy crap. One of the marginally less crappy plastic toys was a marker with ink that fluoresces in UV…

094/366: TEDxAlbany Stage

For obvious reasons, I don’t have a photo of myself speaking at TEDxAlbany, but since that was my only real activity on Thursday, I need something to document it, so here’s the stage before the show got started: You can see the stage and the podium a bit, but I went with this shot because…

093/366: Talk Prep, continued

The Internet was really flaky at Chateau Steelypips for the last couple of days, and I was kind of busy yesterday, so I’ve got a bit of a backlog of photo-of-the-day posts. This is another document-my-activities post, from a day full of talk preparation. As a change of pace from just reading the text out…

092/366: Rejected Currency

It’s cold and rainy today– you know, like it’s supposed to be in December in the Northeast– so a good day to stay inside with the camera and be randomly artsy. My desk is currently hosting a larger than usual pile of change because SteelyKid found a coin-collecting thing she got a few years ago…

091/366: Turkey Talk

Not an incredibly artistic or innovative bit of photography, here, but I spent a good chunk of the day taking The Pip for his annual physical, so the only pictures I took were of SteelyKid’s schoolwork: This assignment asked her to draw herself asking a question that a turkey would then answer, and then the…

090/366: Kids These Days

We had our usual tv time on Sunday morning at my parents’, with the kids alternating picking what they watched. When it came around to SteelyKid’s turn, she opted for MythBusters, which wasn’t available on demand, but she has several episodes on her tablet. Of course, if SteelyKid was going to watch video on her…

089/366: Seasonal

Saturday was still warm, but grey and rainy, so we needed indoor activities. We took the kids down to the Roberson Museum to see their annual Christmas display, with lots of trees donated and decorated by local organizations, toys and games from the 50’s and 60’s, and a giant model train display. And the “International…

088/366: Geese

So, today, we engaged in the traditional Black Friday activity of, um, going to the park and chasing birds: It was an unbelievably warm day for late November– if you look closely, you can see that SteelyKid is wearing shorts and a T-shirt– so we couldn’t very well sit inside. So we went across to…
