Welcome to week 30 of I Likes! Boulder CO edition.
We spent 5 days checking out CO as a future home and today's post is picture heavy... grab a cuppa tea and join me...
I'll start with our last day visiting the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) which was in a modern building designed by I M Pei.
view is real y'all. Imagine spending your days working here to bring knowledge to the world.
Climate is worth studying. Knowledge is important. Please respect nature before it's too late.
Next "like" is chocolate!
* I Liked this chocolate store's offerings...and the store was dedicated to chocolate.
and I Liked these "chocolate labs"
sculpture... a blown glass bowl put on a piece of wood while the glass was still hot and flexible so it molded to the wood. Cool!
*I Liked this table inlaid with turquoise! Want!
"lost my will to shop" That's when you know I'm not well.
But I did not lose my will to photograph beauty so enjoy these few pictures of the town
*I Liked the Celestial Tea Factory
|holding onto my cup of tea!|
They have lovely artistic teapots and samples of many teas to enjoy while you wait for a tour.
We waited for the tour but when they gave out 50 hairnets made with some toxic smelling chemicals I had to bow out.
The factory was quiet for Sunday anyway...
Note these lovely teapots...
Read some of these fortunes and see the little man on top? Each teapot was unique and artistic... little useful sculptures.
* I Liked this woman's hair... a lot!
Kayla laughed and said she was just in NYC and was stopped every block by someone loving her hair!
The answer, she said was to bleach her brown locks, then use toner, then color for glossy results!
*I Like looking at possible homes, and the agent Kelly Moye was awesome in her choices for us. At the favorite house I saw this gully across the street with painted stones
*I Like shopping with friends
*I Like visiting with friends
*I like taking spousies with Boulders in Boulder
