Friday I took the day off from work and spent my day cleaning the house, writing some wedding Thank You notes, and cooking some things the hard way. Dan roasted another beer butt chicken last weekend, so I saved the bones to make chicken stock.
Saturday and Sunday I spent my days in ISS Mission Control. (Yes, even on a holiday weekend, someone has to watch the baby!). Luckily my awesome husband Dan was at home tacking his very first "Honey Do" list, including the laundry, and smoking us a brisket for Saturday's dinner. Sunday we went to a local Tex-Mex place. I got fajitas, and this delicious mango margarita! We enjoyed the breeze on the patio- we're lucky it was cool enough to sit outside in May!

|New bookshelf, and old smaller bookshelf. Many books!|
After building, we celebrated with some beer in our beloved Mr. and Mrs. koozies (a wedding present from people who know us a bit too wel!)
Then I made a breakfast casserole for the week. Inside is leeks, spinach and a can of corn, along with eggs and cheese, based on this recipe. While I blog, we're relaxing on the couch, before grilling up some chicken for dinner.(Update: This was DELICIOUS! Highly recommend it!)
Today (Tuesday), a new crew is launching and docking with the ISS (thanks to the new 4-orbit rendezvous capability they can launch and dock on the same day- they only have to spend about 6 hours cooped up together in the Soyuz capsule, rather than the previous 2 days!) and I'm working the evening shift which is the actual docking shift. Read here for more info on the launch and new crew. Look for me on NASA TV! (Launch coverage is at 3:30pm Eastern, docking coverage begins at 9:30pm Eastern)
