I hope you all had a great Christmas and have had a nice start to the New Year (four days is a lot of time to get things done). I had a very good Christmas/New Years, probably one of the best in quite a while (no offense to past Christmases or New Years). Maybe it's because I'm getting older (28 is old, right?) and I know I can't expect the magical element to it I had as a kid. But spending time with my girlfriend and my family was a lot of fun.
So, as always, here are a few pictures I took over the past couple of weeks of - you guessed it - random things.
|A glove I found in the hallway last night.|
|A Mocha Almond Parfait from Godiva.|
|A section view of the parfait (not nearly as cool looking as it could be).|
There is a layer of light coffee ganache, with almond praline and chocolate glaze.
It was good.
And last are some pictures of my newest Lego Architecture set - the Farnsworth House. It ended up looking very nice, the little pieces of furniture are a nice little touch. I need to go back and fix some of the pieces that aren't completely straight, as that drives me nuts. And like last time I made sure all the pieces were facing the same direction (based on the imprinted Lego name on each piece) just to please my faint, but still-lingering, OCD demons and to make the fun of putting it together last a bit longer.
Also like last time I've included a few objects to help show the scale of this little house.
