Off the Grid Vacation

As midnight approaches; while sitting on the deck. Wind blowing through her hair and lighting in the sky, frogs and crickets competing for their chance to make sounds. She thinks about her time off the grid as refreshing.  Catching up on books and movies while lounging in bed. 

Although watering the garden is a daily pastime she took each morning as a chance to watch nature. The birds flying in and out near by trees . Woodpecker far off in the distance. Squirrels snatching the bird seed her husband throughs out. Nature is there every day if she’s just still.

She’s very excited to have her sewing room close to being done.  Downsizing twice in five years put a damper on this passion she taught herself many moons ago.

Writing haunted her every mood. Ideas poured in and out of her mind. Every book or movie caused inspiration. The internet is a part of life no doubt but you can learn four things if you take time away.

1. Be still…..Nature is full of wonder if you’re still and quiet.

2. Respark a passion…..sewing and even drawing or writing can be brought back to life when you can focus.

3. Caregivers need time also…..if you take care โค of someone 24/7 and never think of yourself life gets annoyingly overwhelmed.

4. Internet will be there no doubt…..this lesson is harder on some more than others. I apologize if you are one this offends but God didn’t create humans to sit in front of a device all the time. Get out and move. Enjoy life it is full of Adventures.

  1. I was telling someone the other day that if I were given the choice of a cabin in Montana in the mountains but could have no cellphone, internet, tv etc…I’d take it in a heartbeat. Beside, I’m working on my mountain man look since being free of the military ๐Ÿ˜€
