Though I didn’t plan it, a couple of weekends ago, I spent almost the entire weekend offline. Starting from the time I left work on Friday night, I went over 48 hours without reading email, checking Twitter, posting to Facebook, or surfing the web. The weekend was wonderful, and quite productive, and while I don’t necessarily want to do the same every weekend, it did remind me to try and find a better balance of online and offline activities.
While not complete, here are a few of the things I did:
Read “The Companions” by RA Salvatore nearly cover to cover. I’d read a couple dozen pages before getting completely absorbed by the book Friday night, and then stayed up until after midnight on Saturday night to finish it up.
Worked on a combination shaping form/display stand for an upcoming Cub Scout craft project.
Cut some PVC for a Cub Scout neckerchief slide project I’ve got coming up.
Cut some parts for version 1 of my dice tower. I’ve got some other construction methods I may try out for making a dice tower, but this version comes from an inspiration online, though is perhaps a little more complicated than it needs to be.
Watched a spider catch a bug in its web. No picture with this one, I just sat and watched for about 15 minutes as it trapped and then wrapped up the bug.
Played Munchkin: Legends, and Tsuro with the kids, and my nephew.
Found a turtle.
Wonder what I’ll do next weekend?
