I know some of you are dealing with horrendous winter weather at the moment. I wish you good luck and warmth as you deal with it. That said, it’s too bad you don’t live here. We are having a heat wave of sorts, with temps in the high 70s. Blue, blue skies, occasional wispy clouds, and very happy birds and squirrels. We’re opening windows and kicking off covers around here. It’s gorgeous.
We tend to have warmer weather east of the Berkeley hills, than the rest of the Bay Area experiences (except for South Bay). But we were in Oakland last night and didn’t even need sweaters. This morning, after our weekly ramble to buy the Sunday papers, I came home sweating.
While I do appreciate the nice days, we really could use a lot more rain. Perhaps a little frost to reduce the bug population. I like warm days but I really like cool weather and rain. Someone’s always complaining, right?
How are you dealing with the weather in your parts?
A post to share for your fun benefit only. This is a good way to break the cloth napkin habit.

My heart actually hurt for the three people who were killed. They were good people, kind, generous, compassionate… and they were senselessly killed by a deranged idiot. Did he do it “because” they were Muslim? I don’t know – although I’m sure his insane mind latched onto the current issues regarding Islam and terrorism, and used that as justification.
Atheism had nothing to do with this. This man is insane.

I like round houses. Don’t know why, but when I see a picture of one, I get happy. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a round house in person but a tour of round houses would be an awesome vacation.
I’m going to make a confession.
Sometimes I look at round-house porn.
I’ll go to sites like this or this and lick my lips at the possibilities.
What is it that attracts me to such oddities? I do have a contrary streak that leans toward the unusual. It’s pretty mild, which is why there are no pictures of me with big purple hair and glittering eyebrows, sitting naked on the back of a Harley in the desert somewhere, and a pair of Rottweilers standing guard.
Sorry. Hope you can get that image out of your minds.
So yes, my extremes are near-normal, but I’m not exactly suburban material. Yes, I know I live in the suburbs, but that’s because it’s where Himself lives and I really like living with him. More than I like round houses, in fact. I just reserve the right to indulge in ogling once in a while.
I like the hobbitesqueness of round houses. They seem to encourage a lifestyle closer to nature, as if living in a tree house. Of course, any house can be built with eco-friendly materials and be designed to deliver an energy-neutral environment. Any house can be equipped with walls of windows and a wrap-around porch. And any house can be built to be interesting, with its own personality, although you won’t find them in the suburbs. But if a house is all of that and round… my fantasy-loving spirit really groks that!
What about you? What’s your favorite kind of architecture? What kind of house would you love to live in?

This is a powerful film. Only 8 minutes long. Be brave. Watch it.
