this was a good week
This was a good week! Here’s why:
• I’m finally getting over my cough, we’ll be officially done moving this weekend, and my office is all set up and ready to go. It’s nice for Chookooloonks HQ to have a permanent home again. (You can see a tour of my tiny little set-up here.)
• I’ve been so focused on setting up the house, I haven’t really gotten into the Christmas spirit yet — but my lovely friend Andrea’s sweet, short video might just get me there.
• This record-breaking cherry blossom tree made entirely of LEGOs is just fantastic. (That it lights up is the icing on the cake!)
• And finally, for today’s soundtrack, and oldie but a goodie: Bobby McFerrin demonstrates the magic of the pentatonic scale. There’s something about the pentatonic scale — the scales “were developed independently by many ancient civilizations—an indication that pentatonic scales are based upon a naturally occurring phenomenon,” according to Wikipedia — and this amazing video illustrates this beautifully.

With that, have a wonderful weekend, friends. See you next week.
