This and That

Walking with Cake: Bougainvillea in bloom

(My bougainvillea is blooming!)

This week was all about getting things done, and we were extremely busy, busy, busy.  We’re looking forward to a calm and quiet weekend after the bustle of brewing tonight.  Here are a few things that caught my attention this week.

Is it necessary to teach kids cursive writing?

Did you watch “The Bletchley Circle” last Sunday on PBS?  I did, and I’m hooked!  I swear, I was really cut out for life in Britain in the 1940s and 1950s.  I’ve got the hair to prove it.

I’ve been catching up on “Mad Men,” and why is Lindsay Weir kissing Don Draper?  It grosses me out.  A lot.  He’s old enough to be her dad, but she’s supposed to be his mom.  What is going on here?

As a kid, did you read From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler?  It was one of my most favorite books, and I think it helped fuel my love for art.  The author passed away last weekend.

How to bring a little of the Art Deco period to your home, Gatsby-style.

And how you can help keep politics out of design in Texas.  Seriously, y’all, it’s not a crime to have good taste.

My new blog design should be installed over the weekend, so my site might be down for a bit as that takes place.

Have a wonderful weekend!
