This has been one of those weeks that started out slow and then sped up at the end. Happiest of Fridays to you all.

2. A Bert Macklin primer.

3. Fully functioning Lego loom??? Amazing!


4. The most beautiful currency I’ve ever seen.


5. A little Wes Anderson color theory for ya.

Let Me Eat Cake



Derek’s out of town, so that means…cake for dinner!!!

(I ate some other stuff too, but let’s be real, this was the main course.)

I’m leaving the single digit weather to head for snowier pastures in the next few days:


I’m very excited for my first big mountain ski trip since surgery. I will make sure to have fun and take pictures!

Weekend Recap: February 20-22

Finally, after all this snow the weather cooperated for one weekend day. The temperature rose well above freezing and the sun came out and the snow was good. We were both a little confused as to why there weren’t more people taking advantage of such a great day on the slopes, but as the guy on the chairlift said when I asked where all the people were: “Shhhhh!” It felt like a slightly busy weekday. Bad news for Ragged Mountain’s bottom line, but good news for us.

It’sĀ supposed to be stupid cold tomorrow and likely for the rest of the week, so it was a nice treat to be in the warm sun, if only for a day.

And yes, Derek did ride his snowboard off the roof of the garage and into a giant pile of snow. Living the dream.
