But I'm glad I got the book. It is called The Big Book of Twenty-five Houses, which pretty much sums it up. It is a large format paperback with loads of color plates, about 250 pages, featuring 25 modernist houses, most of them in Spain. It was published in Barcelona in 2000, and is a pretty high quality book in pretty good condition. I snapped it up, even though I could have gotten a 10% senior discount on Tuesday, since it wasn't worth twenty cents to risk losing it.
Although it was warm today, the sky seemed faintly overcast. The light can get a bit depressing this time if year, with its low angle, and an overcast makes it more so. But I just spend more time looking at the computer screen, so I don't have to see the dimming light. But then as the sun gets lower in autumn the moon gets higher, and the night thus a bit brighter. I don't know that the brighter nights make up entirely for the dimmer days, but they help a bit.
I've had a low grade headache this evening, and should probably stop looking at the monitor now. I'm squinting, and it isn't helping. And crap, I just noticed that I've lost Internet, which is because I've let the phone/hot spot battery run down again. It takes a couple of hours to recharge, so it will be about that long before I can post this entry, if I'm still awake then, which I probably won't be. How did I not notice the battery was getting low? Just lost track of time again, I guess.
