Hygge

Hygge. In a considered change of plans, we’re still in Minnesota. For the last week and a half we’ve been visiting with our good mates Chip & Sloane (and two childerbeasts) which has been wonderful. The last few days in particular, staying with mates’ parents up on Lake Melissa. Bliss would a good word to explain the last few days, and homely and loved are words to describe our stay in Minnesota so far. All good things must come to an end.

Great things come in small, foil-stamped packages

I bought a book yesterday:101 Things I Learned In Architecture School, buy Matthew Frederick. I’m not an Architect, so why did I buy it? Well, it was pretty cheap for a start, ~$16 bucks. It’s attractive. It has a thick, raw artboard cover with two-colour foil stamping, and a linen spine. And it’s around A5 size. It took me only four or five pages of flicking in the store to decide to bring it home with me like a sad-eyed puppy.
