an enjoyable weekend









i really enjoyed reading your responses to my previous post on setting internet boundaries & i am so happy that i was able to serve as a bit of inspiration for some of you! my weekend was simply wonderful & i am so happy to have made the choice to turn off the computer. i felt refreshed once i returned this afternoon to my studio...even after a home improvement weekend so that says a lot.

we stayed close to home for most of the weekend, finishing projects around the house. we hung lanterns from our covered front porch, built trellises for our overgrown cantaloupe & watermelon plants, & other little odds & ends around the home. luke's brother, joel, also came to stay for the night. this afternoon we had a ridiculously good time making produce bags from my stash of vintage fabric.

wishing you all a happy monday evening... after such a good weekend, it can be hard to get back into the groove.

love,
natalie

I love the end of a good home improvement weekend, and getting to enjoy what you did to fix up your place! I love those lanterns!

I haven't turned off my computer on the weekends yet (I might give that a try one weekend), but one thing I have started doing is only working on my laptop from the kitchen table or my desk, and not in bed or on the couch. This has had the effect of making me read a lot more, which I love! Also, last school year, I made a rule for myself that I would not take my laptop to school with me, and it caused an unbelievable increase in productivity for me. If I wanted to waste time I did it talking to friends instead of surfing the internet! I'd say that's a good thing. I got a lot of work done too, to be sure. :)
