Ever I Saw Your Face

So, when I say the Pacific Northwest is green, it doesn't really encompass how GREEN it really is. There's an upside to all this rain.

And this guy.

It's been almost 15 years and after all this time, a glance in my direction and ... butterflies.

An Unexpected Guest

Until recently, I have not been a huge fan of the Lego LOTR sets. They're a bit too piecemeal and disjointed for my liking. Helm's Deep is one exception but even there, it should have been grander.

And then I saw The Hobbit's offerings in the form of Bag End and I was hopeful.

Normally, it takes me a few days to finish any set; I get distracted easily. But this was so charming, it only took a few hours. It's Lego meets Tolkien dollhouse and the only thing preventing it from being absolutely perfect is that it's only one room. Need more!

I wish I had taken more photos but the boy wanted to build it too so I took it apart. But not before someone popped in for some pie.
