Low Tech Monday got off to a rough start. The meal site closed so I had the day off, but had to make a b-zillion phone calls and got a g-zillion phone calls to cope with the closing! Then I had to head off to work for a few hours. By the time things settled down to low tech, it was nearly noon.
It was rainy all day, but warm, and it was nice to sit with tea and drink while the rain puttered and the wind yowled.
We did find a wicked cool kerosene lantern we used to go out in the evening to close up chickens, instead of using a flashlight. It was fun.
We talked and read and talked some more! It's nice to be quiet and listen to the quiet. And it was really cool to eat a warm, yummy meal made entirely without using electricity.
