Today was a real eye-opener, one that was probably long overdue. Our internet and cellular service were both down. We have no land line and I sorely missed my connection to the outside world.
I really accomplished a LOT!
I started by sorting and organizing my seeds, cleaning the garden shed, sprucing up the chicken coop. I washed and folded laundry and ran a load of dishes too. I optimistically sowed some surplus peas outside and some lettuce and chard in the unheated greenhouse. I gleaned growing info from my seed catalogs!
I was great! It was unnerving. When did I become so dependent on connections outside of home? I LOVE what the internet offers but I am now a little more aware how much it can stealthily steal. So, I plan to start blocking out some time to just be unwired. I expect it to be a sort of detox. I plan to get a lot done.
