After a few adjustments, Dorothy can really get the two-wheeler going. She’s so happy with it, and seems so big all of a sudden.

Behold the delicate beauty and cleverness of this interactive Japanese children’s book by Megumi Kajiwara and Tathuhiko Nijima. Entitled Motion Silhouette, the handmade book features white pop-up silhouettes between each page. Shining a light on either side of the silhouettes cast moving shadows onto the pages that help tell the story. Ghosts appear before frightened a sleeper, a train travels down tracks and across the face of the moon, someone makes a wish on a dandelion head and then blows out birthday candles, butterflies flutter and what appears as a tree on one page turns into lightning flashing above a cityscape on another.

Click here to watch a brief video that offers a closer look at this enchanting book.

Motion Silhouette is a sequel to a previous book by Kajiwara and Nijima entitled Silhouette. These beautiful works of interactive art are handmade to order.Click here for order inquiries.

I haven’t weeded in a while in this section, and during dinner (grilled pizza) we saw a hummingbird drinking from the purple flowers (weeds)!  I’m so excited to have a hummingbird around.  Unfortunately I could not catch the bird itself in a photo.

I keep forgetting to post these for Dad to see. In our basement a few years back, I found a roll-up yardstick from a company in Bedford, Indiana! I suspect it may have been together with the incomplete gravestones we’ve also found here; maybe they were Bedford limestone?

I’m pretty happy with my morning finding - I can make a half batch of pancakes (plus two sausages) really quickly!

Note:  breakfast was not completely monochromatic - we had some strawberries with them, along with a cup of tea for me.
