For the record, today's weather is sunny with occasional lusts after lace

Images from here, and here respectively

For the record, today's weather is sunny with occasional lusts after lace.

I'm beginning to become obsessed with lace. I have so many cuttings in my room. Its so lovely and magical and makes me feel as if I live in a period novel.

Yesterday on my way back to my friend's house we discovered a tree wrapped in doilies tied together with string, so all the branches were completely covered in lace. We looked quite the fool climbing up to get a better look.

The rest of the day was filled with picnics in the park and ice-cream on top of scaffolding, looking over the city.
I hope your weekend was as lovely!

PS. I just finished reading Diary; A Novel by the amazing Chuck Palahniuk (the author of Fight Club. If you haven't read it, pick it up now. Its disturbing but so well written). His structure is incredible. His writing style influenced the title of my post, although my content is far happier than what fills his novels.

Liss - I'm so glad I found someone else who likes Chuck Palahnuik! I only know one other person whose read his work. I've only read Fight Club and Diary though, Fight Club blew me away. I was going through his books at uni yesterday. Which others can you recommend?

kate - Yes, it is on gertrude street! Isn't it lovely?
And thanks about the necklaces. I'm having a little trouble with setting up payment, because I never use credit cards, but hopefully that will be sorted soon. :)

I found "Diary" to be a disturbing, but as you said, well-written fiction.
Beautiful pictures...
