Dear Family and Friends,
Happy New Year to all of you! My family spent a wonderful evening at home with friends playing games and cards. Such a blast! We all said we need to get together more often. On that note, Patty shared a Mother Earth News newsletter with me, primarily because of the fire cider recipe but there was another article that caught my attention.
Do a Digital Detox to Reconnect with the World Around You got me thinking about the bad habits I’ve formed over the last few years. Facebook, news surfing, playing games…I don’t want to think about how much of my day is taken up with that. I am now detoxing from the digital world. I’ve deleted my Facebook, games and news apps from my iPhone. I’ve alerted my Facebook friends and tried to delete my gaming account but to no avail. I’ll be back in February, but with better habits.
My hope now is to finish Patty’s sweater, start some new blacksmithing projects and spend more time with my family and friends. I will be posting blog entries and posting on the Maine Rural Partners Facebook page, that’s work, can’t stop that! Call me, drop me a letter, I’d love to hear from you. I just have to get off this thing and get my head back on straight.
