Almost Amish Life for Me

March 17, 2012

We love Amish country. Love the food, the scenic country side, the simplicity of life. After every visit we come home refreshed with a renewed passion for living simple.
As technology grows, I am getting spoiled by the convenience of all it offers. Too spoiled! So, I’ve decided we are going to attempt a tech free life for a few weeks.
My kids need to join our family a little more and walk away from phones, ipads, ps3 and all the likes of. However, I have to practice what I preach. I will shut down all things involving the net. I will only check emails & such once a day in the evening. I will also be writing about it in that hour, but that is all. No surfing, no searching, no chatting, facebooking, twittering, or pinning!

I am choosing to focus these last few days as a family of six under one roof, on exactly that…Family!  I am hoping to become almost Amish for  just a little while. I’ll come back to the internet after I’ve been refreshed and renewed by the simplicity. 

 This is also part of letting go and letting God.~Always Ready to see Him in all things.  I know He will be present in all the fullness living simple has to offer.

So, today I am saying goodbye technology,

Hello God & Family Time… Hello Butter

  1. It was actually a documentary called “Living With The Amish” that inspired me to take up preserving and pickling. It just seemed like such a good idea to rescue vegetables from supermarkets before they hit their use-by date and grow as much of our own as possible to use in pickling as well.

    I’d not be able to handle the zeal of their religion, but I did fall in love with much of the Amish lifestyle whilst watching a bunch of kids from London experience it 🙂
