Above Average?

Last night I was listening to the news and when my brain (yes I have one!) clued into what the "news man" was saying, I'm almost positive I heard him say the average American does something related to looking at a screen such as computer stuff, texting, blackberries, TV etc. for 8 1/2 hours per day. I think I'll just continue to be above average! *smile sigh* If I were plugged in all the time, when would I have time for taking walks and smelling flowers? I don't want the best things in life to pass me by!
I don't want my life to just go down the drain! EeeeeeeeeeKKKKKKKKkkkkkkk! I better get off of here! I know you understand!

Have a wonderful Saturday. And occasionally stop and savor the sights and smells of life around you.

Love, Rachel

I doubt your life is going to go down the drain very soon! You stay way too busy for that to happen!

Thanks for the picture of the beautiful Spring picture!

Have a happy Saturday!

Love, Esther

Amazing thought! Thank God for technology....I couldn't see your beautiful blog otherwise, and YET it doesn't compare to the simple pleasures of life! I am now "clicking off" to go enjoy my family! :) Have a great weekend...

Ronda said...

OopS...Rachel...let me clarify myself. "Technology" doesn't compare...not your blog! :) Sorry! Hope you knew what I meant!

Oh no! We are above average - I am certainly not going to spend that much time at a screen! In fact, tomorrow a walk is in order!

What a lovely house. I always want to be above average, but not in this category...although, the days I post and comment on other blogs, I am probably above average.
