in case i may have fooled you into thinking i was at all cool, think again.
nick has recently begun reading me the hobbit for a few minutes each
night before we fall asleep, and i must say- it is quite magical.
i am not sure if it's the way nick reads it, with his voice rising and falling
with the up and down patterns of the words, or tolkien's easeful
way of storytelling that quietly draws you into a scene until it is as if
you are standing in the warm comfort a hobbit hole, rather
than in your own bedroom-- or both-- but i have been thoroughly
enjoying myself and cannot wait for the two-part film, which
has just started production in new zealand this month!
ok, i'll admit it- i am a nerd.
but seriously, wouldn't you love to live in a
hobbit-inspired home like this one?
graphic designer and photographer, scott dale & his wife built this
eco-friendly home in the woods with the help of neighbors and a little
bit of luck. without a set plan on how to construct the sustainable structure,
the building process came along very organically and probably not unlike
the way mr. bilbo baggins himself would have built his home in the shire!
forget yesterday's post about cozy nooks, this entire home
is the ultimate cozy cove.
