You could hear a pin drop

Things have been very quiet around here lately. As in, literally, very quiet. There are two main rooms in our apartment, and there’s a desk in each. From mine, in the bedroom, I can hear my sweetheart typing away at his, in the living room. 

The only other sound is the pup, who occasionally rolls over and lets out a big sigh, or trots back and forth between the desks, in hopes of rounding up at least one of us for a walk.

This is how we’ve been spending our afternoons and evenings over the past few weeks, typing and clicking away, noses pressed firmly to the grindstone, except when we meet up at the table for dinner, or sometimes, cheese (thank you, Granpa).

Austin Kleon was so right when he wrote that sometimes you just have to be boring in order to get things done. 

In other news, my latest post, “On learning new things,” is up on the Equals Project today. Also, sometimes I wish I were typing away on one of these.
