We're on a self-imposed screen fast over here at The Wabi-Sabi House.
I'll explain more on Wednesday when we're finished.
We did agree that I could do my blog posts, and we did finally "have" to use the computer to check the weather (what happened to getting weather updates from the radio, I ask you? We waited HOURS!)
We'll be finished on Wednesday morning so I'll just be posting the most cursory of things until then.
Here's what we did this weekend:
We found a stash of chikkin eggs in the shed.
We divvied them amongst the beasts.
We had a breakfast fire!
I highly recommend this.
(See the dirt ground? We got all that mulch raked up and now it's almost ready for plantinnnnggggg!!! weeeeeeee)
Spray painted the new outdoor chandelier.
(Thanks to Jennifer and Bradley for the recycle!)
Played Monopoly (and played, and played, and played ... )
Built the first stage of the Mindstorm Robot. Very exciting!!
(We did have to use the computer to program the machine, but we had agreed on that ahead of time. Well worth it too. These things are FUN.)
Um, did I mention that we played Monopoly?
Mixed magic potions and poison concoctions.
We also cooked, read, took walks and bike rides (brrrr), played lots of Nerf and, every now and then, got a little bit bored.
And guess what?
We LOVED it.
All of us.
My kid saying he likes not being on the computer is like the Pope saying he really enjoys a good steak on Friday.
More pictures tomorrow.
La, la, la.
