Today I went to the market with our next-door neighbor. We bought a flat of baby cucumbers to make bread-and-butter pickles tomorrow.

First Flickr photo upload. Goal is to take a picture a day for the next year.

DSM Art Center

We're pretty lucky to live within walking distance of such a great art museum in Des Moines. Today's weather was awesome, so we took a walk to check out the Tara Donovan exhibit, which was quite interesting. She makes art out of things like Scotch tape and drinking straws. Mostly though what I love about the art center is the building itself. Sort of a gem for a city the size of Des Moines...the building was designed by three outstanding architects: Saarinen, Meier, and Pei.
