We are nearly "unplugged" at the farm these days. It is peaceful... and leaves time for reading aloud and playing guitars. It is, however, an adjustment.

Several times, I have wished that I could "pop online" to look up a fact, but other than that I am not minding the absence of internet in the house as much as I expected.  I find that by using public internet... having to drive several miles and make a plan to spend the time online... I am using it more "mindfully."  No longer can I sit down on the couch to "spend a few minutes online" and then suddenly realize that an hour has gone by.

Having said that, I miss my blog circles... Bloggers have been my neighbors and companions for many years now. I wish I could find that sense of being kindred spirits more often in my day to day experience.

We are waiting for spring, as patiently as we can.  The temperature at the bus stop this week has ranged from a high of 8 below zero to a low of 20 below zero.  It is difficult to remain patient for spring at those temps!  Won't it be a beautiful thing one morning soon to awake to the sound of melting snow dripping from the eaves?!

Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you comfort and joy.
