So, with everything going on with Paradise, CA and my extended family (see the previous posts if you don’t know what I am talking about), I have decided to give myself a gift and not go on Facebook for this week. I need a break from all the posts, etc.
So far I have pulled out some small painting projects and I at least remembered to take most of the before photos so I will make a future post about that.
Now, I am not giving up all of the social media since I do use Facebook Messenger and I am also on Instagram, but I hardly ever go on Instagram and when I do I usually see good, uplifting things like funny Golden Retriever videos, recipes and etc.
I do want to wish everyone an early Happy Thanksgiving too.
I was scrolling through some emails and I came to one from the PILLOWS A-LA-MODE blog.
I was sad to read that Katherine, the author of the blog, had died right before Christmas of breast cancer.
I, like others who commented, never met her, but I always enjoyed reading her posts when they arrived in my email inbox.
The Internet (blogs, Facebook, etc) has definitely expanded my view of the world. Before Christmas, I read a post on Facebook stating that there was going to be a heatwave in Australia on Christmas day and the next post was about how people were dealing with the freezing cold temperatures in Nevada, etc.
So, even though there is a lot of negative information on the Internet I hope I add something positive to what is available.
