tilting at windmills

now THAT's a windmill!

we drove past this windmill yesterday and i fell in love. i believe i've mentioned before how much i want to live in one. i'll bet we could get this one for a song since it's a bit of a fixer-upper. hmm, i wonder whether our architect would approve the purchase?

Is the mill close to your new place?

Maybe the first step should be to adopt your polish guy because if I remember correctly you already have renovationplans for the next ten years. So you need an additional familymember(s)to get the work done.
But I have to admit it would be a great Blue Mill.

Have a great weekend.

i think you could build one from scratch for the cost of renovating that one. but....i bet you could get a deal on the reclaimed wood there.

You would truly have to have the Don Quixote mindset to think you could fix up that one!

Crazy pic, did you take it?

PS: Just read your 'about me' -- I love Röyksopp, too. Especially "Happy up here." Totally addicting in a good way.

This is incredibly majestic in its decay.

Yes, Suecae Sounds! majestic decay! That is a very visual description! The cogs inside all tilted, crazy!
