I am posting one (or two) photos each week that describe common and often overlooked aspects of daily life. 
In a culture that puts so much value on the sensational, I want to learn to appreciate the beauty of the ordinary.

Week 1:

The New Year began with an intense winter blast. From late Sunday night to Wednesday afternoon, the temps stayed below 32*. We stayed quite toasty with an additional small heater. Although we had plenty of propane for the furnace (TSC ran out as they filled the tanks of  the guy behind us) we didn't use much with our two space heaters working so hard.

It took us a couple of hours to decide whether or not we needed to buy an extra heater (no desire for "extra" things when you live in a small sapce). So glad we decided to part with 25 dollars for this gem! It was worth every penny!

Week 2: 

Each winter we return to Austin to see family and work temporary jobs we have with the Regional Science Festival. Trey has been working the fair since the early 90's and this is Susan's eighth Science Fest year. The long hours are tiring, but it is always rewarding.

This is part of the team working out contractual issues in the event center.  Right now it is just a big open space, but in a few weeks, this hall will have over of 2,500 science projects coming and going.
