we enjoyed the most delightful day yesterday. skies were blue, birds were singing, the temperature was perfect. but these were not the reasons we enjoyed our perfect day, they were just icing on the cake. what made the day wonderful is that our cable provider's system crashed, leaving us without phone, internet, or tv. i wish this would happen more often. it was blissful. we were relaxed, and leisurely caught up on so many things that had been put off. i made banana blueberry bread and granola and strawberry rhubarb jam (rhubarb from our garden!). i cleaned. i enjoyed gracie.
i wouldn't want this to happen too regularly, because i had to ignore the customers of our internet shops. i really enjoy our shops and our customers, and want to provide the best service possible. but there is always more to be done with the shops, ALWAYS. and not being able to access the shops, or anything/one else by phone or internet was so refreshing. maybe i should schedule one day like this a week. i believe it would bless my life. but do i have the self-control to stay off the internet and phone if they are accessible? i fear i don't. and that's a painful admission.
