In today’s blog, I’ll share with you what happens when you don’t have power or water. There are no limits to what the imagination can conjure.
Back in 2015 when we started to stay in the farm house, we lost a bit of the conveniences we had in The Love Shack. We didn’t have electricity hooked up in the house. We also did not have running water, albeit we did have a single tap that gave us cold well water. We couldn’t drink it, but it saved us from having to haul a lot of water to the farm. But the three of us have never been one to be deterred but those inconveniences so we made do with what we had, and had a lot of fun in the process.
Here are some of the things we did with our time to entertain ourselves:
Sometimes we entertain ourselves in the evenings with a trip to Walmart to check out the canned weenies, the ipad camera and the toy section.
Sometimes we just take the time to appreciate the small, simple beauty of everything around us.
Everyone has the opportunity to make every single situation a chance to think outside the box and consider what you DO have instead of what you DON’T have. Just because we didn’t have hot and cold running water and electricity, (oh, and a very creepy outhouse) didn’t mean that we were limited. We were limited in using our smartphones as well. It was awesome. If anything, it meant that we had more occasion to be creative and let our imagination do some work for us. It’s all in how you choose to look at it and so far, it’s been a whole heck of a lot of fun.
