We are away from the blog these days because we started using a typewriter. The article in last week's New York Times on carbon emissions and the internet actually made us kind of sick. And then we stopped over-using the internet. We, meaning not the whole household, but me, Lisa of the Blog. But actually Bea stopped asking to watch Winnie The Pooh when I stopped checking my email during the day. This was really interesting. What do we do? The daily email check is at 8 am and usually takes about 15 minutes. Business gets caught-up-with, and then the computer is off for the rest of the day. Bea and I have been using the typewriter, knitting socks, sewing (yes, the sewing maching is up and running), and tomorrow we pick up our raw milk delivery so that we can make some yogurt. We're not shunning technology, but are trying to use it more wisely. The result, for me, is better sleep and better concentration. Go figure. And peace out.
