i had lunch today with on-maternity-leave lilcee, lilcee's lil cousin, and funemployed SAHW winnie. yay for ladies who [temporarily] lunch! anyway, that has nothing to do with this post. i just had fun. and wanted to share. oh, and we ate at wurstkuche [sniggle, sniggle]. thanks for coming to me, ladies! so good to see you all.

earlier today, i was in the woodshop at school cutting some shelves out of melamine. yes, it's one part in the never-ending moving story (that flying dog from neverending story totally creeps me out, by the way). anyway, there was a box marked as "scrap--donations for A+D museum's ARkidTECTURE program." i had no idea what it was, but i tossed some of my scrap pieces in since it sounded better than sending it to the landfill.

i just looked it up, and it sounds awesome. i really wish something like this had been available when i was a kid. if you have or know a kid ages 8-12 that is interested in industrial design, architecture, and/or landscape architecture, you want to expose to these fields, or you just wanna keep occupied for a few saturdays this summer, ch-ch-ch-check it out. it's FREE!

oh, and the a+d museum's website is kinda eh right now, so go to their facebook fan page for more info. they've had some good exhibits, and i hope to volunteer at some of their events soon.


  1. I was so glad to see you yesterday! You should post pictures of the shelves when they're done.

  2. what a fun lunch you had!

    too bad the teen isn't/wasn't into the architecture thing. i'm all about free stuff that expands the horizon.


comments are tasty!
