I wanted to do something in Sedona while the guys played a round of golf, but I wasn’t exactly thrilled to do it alone. It wasn’t far into my hike though before I was embracing the time to be in my own head, tap into some creative energy, or just unplug & take the day in. Besides, I wasn’t exactly solo; Eisley is my best little company. I enjoyed the me time so much so, when Dave & Dylan joined us for a more extended hike, I lagged behind. Ok, so the lagging primarily had to do with my sore (Chaco-rubbed) feet.
I still had fun chasing butterflies though.
I hope you enjoyed my Week in the Life as much as I enjoyed the challenge of doing it.

I forgot to take every day photos on Thursday…until the rainy ride home.
The rest of my night was pretty mellow; I just wanted to enjoy it with Dave & Dylan, our friend who is visiting.
At least I didn’t forget
But then I forgot to post them, & yesterday I had other (outdoor) things on my agenda; so here it is well over a day late.
I think I’m pretty happy with some of Friday’s photos…which I’ll likely post Monday. There is still the rest of my weekend to be had after all.
Ready? Unplug on 3.

A Week in the Life.
I have been fighting the blahs recently. For some reason, the last two Wednesdays have been especially difficult.
But not yesterday.
Bright colors make me happy.
What we surround ourselves with has an amazing impact on our mood, so why not choose things that are bright & cheerful? — this goes for people too.

Last week I scored a basketful of vintage maps.
I noticed them sitting on the “free table” in the main entrance of the building where I temp at the university. I was glowing the rest of the afternoon, which is sort of lame. I don’t care. I also dig the wicker pail they came rolled up in.
I’m seeing some fun cartography projects in the near future.
Today, while I’ve been sorting through my new maps, clearing out some clutter & even clipping a couple inspirations from a magazine, Eisley has been my constant shadow.
We are listening to thunder storms in the distance , which stress & freak Eisley out. She actually jumped in the tub while I was showering today to avoid being even more than a couple feet from me lest the thunder get her. The pup hates getting wet — usually requiring a little coaxing to get in the bath — but apparently she hates that thunder more.
I sort of want to participate in Ali Edward’s A Week in the Life, so I’m trying to take simple everyday photos, representing exactly what is going on in our lives each day this week — “from the mundane to the profound”. Though I’m not sure I’ll make a paper album, I’m excited to see if I can pull the images together by other means using text & digital composition…then posting here.
Anyone else want to play?
I’ll post today, tomorrow morning; Tuesday, Wednesday morning; & so on.
p.s. Did you check out the auction?
