We really have the most beautiful planet in our solar system.
We are now the "Christmas Tree gang"...
You know that feeling when you are on vacation and all of a sudden it is the last night you will be there.
"Well it has been quite a week."
"The space traffic pattern is getting busy! Progress 25 launched early Saturday morning."
"Right to work this week, no lollygagging around."
"So, the three of us were looking at each other last Sunday thinking now what do we do. ..."
"It has been a crazy and emotional week. Lots going on to get the Expedition 14 crew and Charles ready to go home."
"You know what it is like when company arrives - and stays for a while? It is really fun and exciting at first."
"Well, this was our last week together, alone."
"So I was telling you about our long day, Thursday, Soyuz re-docking day."
"We've had a lot to celebrate up here this week."
"Finally we got to open the lab window again - we turned around to fly forward again and even did a reboost."
"Unfortunately, flying backwards has its downsides..."
"One interesting observation of the week: we don't walk around up here - we float around in socks or bare feet."
"You probably already know, but the Russian EVA was entirely successful. "
"Well, we started opening my food containers the other week."
"Pre-breathe and getting ready to go outside... it is a long process."
"Well, you probably know this last week was EVA week. Lots of last minute preps to get this ready. ..."
"There are some fringe benefits in this job because some folks are interested in what we are doing and we are happy to tell folks about what life is like here."
"With an empty docking port we have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the next Progress, and early Saturday morning we got sight of her."
"Both Misha and LA got their hair cut this week!"
"So, it's finally back to work for everyone after the holidays."
"I would like to invite ya'll to please join me in working out for the next 6 months!"
"I don't think my stomach knew what was going on at all!"
"I invite all of you to join me in following our progress as we continue to build the ISS as well as continue to do science activities onboard."
"Then we go to KSC (Kennedy Space Center, in Florida) for TCDT (Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test) in which we simulate the entire process of launch."
"Last week was CEIT, Crew Equipment Interface Test."
