Lego Land

Legos are an essential part of my hubby's creative life. I crave yarn, he craves plastic bricks. One of the things I have learned is that I really enjoy sharing in his Lego hoarding obsession joy. I help him sort pieces (because they are all inventoried... yes it's a hazard of being a librarian trained Lego lover) and building new sets. Occasionally, we pursue Lego creativity that is rather "outside the box".

Since I'm a Pride & Prejudice fan, David has patiently endured multiple views of the 6 hour long BBC version. He even has favorite quotes and can do a rather accurate and hysterical impression of Mrs. Bennett. So one night, several months back, we decided to combine my love with his. We created P&P characters out of Legos.

Then a few weeks ago, I was busy making several veggie/fruit pizzas for a myriad of gatherings. However, I ran out of refrigerator space. What would you do if you needed to keep something on a cookie sheet chilled, but didn't have enough shelves? I asked my husband to build me one... out of Legos. It worked beautifully.

Legos aren't just a toy for little kids. Even us quirky adults can find high entertainment value in all the creative possibilities they hold.
