Lessons from Legos

I recently pulled out a box full of legos from my youth, and this afternoon the May Queen and I sat on the floor creating. There's something about the (very LOUD) sound of digging through a box of lego pieces that is oddly satisfying (although I was admonished to dig more quietly).

I found that there were some lessons to be learned from the legos:

The best homes have lots of windows.


There's no need for a TV....


As long as you have lots of books.


Bald is beautiful...


But remember to wear a hat when you are outside
(also... lots of flowers make for a nice garden to sit in)


The May Queen taught me that if there is no room for an oven inside, it is OK to put it in your front yard. This is not considered trashy, but "fantasy land." She reasoned "if I can park my flying car in my house, you can put your oven in your front yard." Hard to argue with that. I'll think of it as a lovely outdoor brick oven that I use when I have my plastic neighbors over for an organic cookout.


Best of all, The May Queen learned that a little imagination goes a long way when you have a box of Legos.

Speaking of Legos, have you seen The Brick Testament? It's Bible stories illustrated with Legos. Sense of humor required.

I haven't been blogging much, I know. Life, and all that. I did get my tax returns filed, and have been enjoying rehearsals. I've been trying to resist the urge to post "just because." But the muse struck this afternoon, for what it's worth.

Monday's Mission, if you choose to accept it, is to write a post in the style of a Sympathy Card. Maybe my blog needs a little sympathy for it's current anemia.

wow, you hooked her up with the good legos!! Never being able to build much more than a square house, I couldn't understand how people could make an exact replica of the Taj Mahal. I see now I just had the wrong legos! Flowers???
Looks like a fun way to start the Spring Break. I hope you and yours have a wonderful time together :-)

I love that she told you to dig more quietly. That is such a great sound.

Love playing with Lego! Although cleaning it up after is a pain.

Legos are the best toy ever! And those are pretty cool pictures. I like the depth in the one with the books on the shelves. Yes, I am a nerd.

Legos are great. My niece works there now - maybe after she's been there a while I can ask her for a tour?? There is a segment on the Kidstuff Live satellite channel in which they interview people with jobs that might intrigue kids - Barbie Doll designer is one I can remember. I look at those Bible stories and wonder,
Who has this much time on their hands? Really? But I'm probably a philistine (small P).

Man, I always wanted to be so creative with Legos and sadly, I just never was.

Ah. I LOVE Legos. And you have such great ones. We have a huge bin full of Brando's in the basement but alas they are all Star Wars and such. Still, you have inspired me to get them out for Boo.

GREAT pictures.

As I was reading this, I thought to myself, I should send her a link to the Brick Testament. Then lo and behold, the link appears at the end. Similar minds, apparently... :)

I like those lego flowers. We don't have any of those.

Can you tell me which set this is? I think Big C would absolutely love it.
