Happy Birthday to me. From my smart and beautiful girl I received a perfect gift, Boek: Piet Hein Eek. He is one of my favorite designers, since we went to the Do Normal exhibition of Dutch design in 1998. I thought I had seen it all—until last year, when he started working with ceramics, making seams and welding flat sheets of pottery. These nice jugs [above from Boek and here] are really something.
A good lunch today, roast pork sandwich, fried eggplant and a meatball on a plate from Shank's and Evelyn's, then water ice from John's. There was a back-of-the-box recipe Hershey's chocolate cake in the afternoon. We didn't make it to Brazilian barbeque for dinner. It was a good day.
