After My Computer Break

Log Cabin Covered Porch

I am done with my computer break.  I really enjoyed it.  It was wonderful to get away from all the things I need to do on the computer every day.  There was no computer around me, so I did not have the option of getting on it.

We stayed in a cabin.  I got a break from laundry (except for washing diapers).  I did not have to cook dinner for a few days because someone else did it.  I had an even smaller space than our house to clean up.  I enjoyed opening the curtains every morning to let in the sunshine and then closing them at dark.  I thought it would be nice if our house had curtains.  Maybe one day I will learn how to make some.

My children enjoyed the porch swings and having water gun fights with each other to cool off.  I enjoyed many moments of quiet reflection and reading.  We all enjoyed the baby bunny that stayed by us, nibbling on the plants.  We ate dinner way too late and the children stayed up past their bedtime.  But we had fun.  I will not soon forget the lessons I learned there, and I will keep screen time to a minimum.

And then it was good to come home.  And wash laundry.  And cook dinner.

Greetings, Glad you had a vacation as it always helps us put things in a whole new light.
I also have cut way back on my computer time. But my children are grown and so my resons for cutting back is wanting just less interaction with the machine. LOL
I wish you and I lived close as I would love to make curtains for you and to teach you how to sew them.Your a really sweet Momma. The children will miss the bunny and all the wonderful memories you made.
Blessings, Roxy

It does. I have not been on one for more than 12 years. Less computer time is good, but I have to use mine for so many things these days. But still I will try to keep it to a minimum.
That is so sweet that you would teach me how to make curtains! That would be so nice! Thank you so much for your kind words and I wish we lived closer too.
God bless you ♥
