My mum will be flying off back to Singapore early Thursday morning, so we took a day trip into the city to spend some time at the SFMoMA on Saturday. The museum reopened last year with a brand new expansion, making it the largest modern and contemporary art museum in America. It has 7 floors of beautiful space and the new building so seamlessly joins the old building that I hadn’t a clue which building I was in. Here’s a Smithsonian magazine article on ten things to love in the SFMoMa. It’s such a big space that we didn’t manage to see everything we wanted to see. Plus the 3yo was getting tired and so we had to leave. Another time! The 5yo said he really enjoyed the day at the museum, although when asked what his favourite part was, his answer was: the store!
The view from the rooftop sculpture garden
The usual – Mad Men, Parenthood
This is the Story of a Happy Marriage – Ann Patchett
The kids and I are going to make pizza tomorrow.
A fascinating piece on a job writing custom erotic love letters (Lit Hub)
George Saunders on making Lincoln on the Bardo (Book Riot)
Gula Melaka chiffon cake (No-Frills Recipes)
Ooh beer brownies (How Sweet Eats)
The Dollmaker – Harriette Simpson Arnow
Children of the Alley – Naguib Mahfouz
I hope you enjoy your reads this week and those pancakes! Yum!!
That museum sounds amazing!
Kids always seem to like the store best: guess the retail curators are as talented as the gallery curators! (And I”ve only got one left in that Kelley Armstrong series – maybe I will actually finish it this year!)
Lincoln on the Bardo was so good! I loved the audio. The Women of the Otherworld series is probably the longest series that I am all read up in. There are some short story collections I still need to get, but I choose to not count those to feel more accomplished. lol
