My partner Sara and I are both strong-willed women with clear creative vision.
(We both, also, happen to be bored.)
Lacking other action, we’ve “debated” in the past few days how best to present her photos on my blog. Do we publish them each day in separate posts or in weekly bundles?
This time around the notion of packaging a week’s worth in one post, clearly, won. We’ll see how this works. If anyone has another suggestion, we’d love to hear your way-more-brilliant-than-either-of-ours (not to mention, objective) ideas.
As evident from the photos below, it hasn’t been exactly what one would call an “eventful” week.
Here in Kentucky, we remain in a holding pattern, waiting either for news of another massive international disaster (likely to translate, sadly, into more immediate work) or for some other employment opportunity to be concretized in the form of an actual offer.
(My partner is an international aid worker who specializes in disaster response, for those of you new to my blog.)
In the meantime, Sara is still working on a short-term project for the NGO she’s been with on and off for two decades—a project that can obviously be done with little—as in NO—travel.
Sometimes we desperately drag our laptops to bed and work from beneath the covers, not only to stay warm, but also for a change of scenery. There’s more to be said than you might realize for even the most minimal variation in geography.
We are definitely going nowhere (and I mean NOwhere) at an alarming rate—though that could change in an instant—and usually, in Sara’s business, does.
Action-less as they are, however, we offer below Sara’s images from the past week.

Let’s face it, folks. Our life–exciting as bran flakes–
–(or sometimes Sara’s spicy sauce.)
What’s the most mundane or (if your life is even a wee bit more exciting than ours) fun thing you’ve done in the past week?
Note: If you are new to my blog, you might like to know that I am writing a memoir and blogging about growing up in an organized crime family. (This post, however, is not part of that series.)
