It really got me thinking though. I spend so much of my time online. I do love the blogger world that I have become involved in, but some days I'm on the computer all day long. So I decided to cut out technology all together this past weekend and it felt really good.
Now don't worry, I'm not leaving you! But don't be surprised if I'm not around quite as much as I have been. I have a few projects I'm working on. Some of them I'm not quite ready to share with the world yet, but there is one that I thought I'd share with you.
In August of 2005, when I moved to South Carolina with my then boyfriend (now hubby), I started knitting an afghan. I got caught up in life, not to mention babies were being born and I would put it aside to knit baby blankets. Fast forward to last week, almost 4 years later, and it was still only about 1/4 done! lol So I am working on finishing this afghan!
I still have quite a bit to go, but it is so rewarding to spend some time doing something with my hands that produces an actual physical result. It really allows you to clear your head and focus in on what's really important. I've also found that it's helping me feel more creative and inspired in terms of my photography course. So that's one of the projects I'm working on. I may be sharing some of my other new projects with you soon too, but we'll see!
So my question to you all today is this:
What do you do to escape technology and get back to basics?
Really looking forward to your responses! :)
