Dark – Weekly Unplugged Project

By , May 26, 2009 11:44 am

Hello all!  We have been out of town and so I wasn’t able to get the Linky up until today.  But here it is for those of you who got to do a dark Unplugged Project this week!

All is the same as usual:

If you have a dark Unplugged Project to post, please link to your project post in Mr. Linky below. If you didn’t do a dark project, but want to join in in the future, please read more about the Unplugged Project here. We’d love to have you!

NOTE: Mr. Linky is having many “issues” at the moment so I would advise you to leave a comment with your link in it, even if the Linky is there. If the Linky isn’t there (and it isn’t appearing right now) then again, be sure to leave a comment containing your link. Thanks!

The theme for next week’s Unplugged Project will be:

Have fun!

Sun – Weekly Unplugged Project

By , May 18, 2009 4:39 pm

The theme for this week’s Unplugged Project was sun. We spent our weekend gardening in the sun, does that count?

This is the last week of school here, so perhaps we’ll have more time to get back into the Unplugged Project after school is out.

I am rather late with the Linky today too (still gardening) but here it is.

Be creative and enjoy!

Magic – Weekly Unplugged Project

By , May 11, 2009 12:45 pm

The theme for this week’s Unplugged Project was magic. We didn’t get to it this week.

I spent last week and the weekend sorting through other people’s castoffs for our annual school yard sale. My conclusion? People have A LOT OF STUFF.

If we get to a magic project later in the week, I’ll link to the post in Mr. Linky below.

Another Non-Blogger’s Story: Jeanna from New Zealand

By , May 6, 2009 9:03 am

Thanks very much to Jeanna for joining us for Turnoff Week from all the way down there in New Zealand! I love the internet. How great to be able to connect with people from all over the world so easily!

Anyhow, that’s enough of my not so profound, but very sincere thoughts.

Here is what Jeanna had to say about her Turnoff Week:

Turnoff week – how it went!

Well we don’t have TV anyway so that part was easy! My kids often watch a DVD at my parents place but we were away for the week so there was no problem with that either. I had to prepare some classes on the computer during the week so I knew I wouldn’t be able to be off it totally so my goal was
“To go on to the computer only when necessary, and to avoid Facebook completely”
I think I did really well. I didn’t go onto facebook during the week at all. I only went online to collect and send emails and I did as much preparation as I could without the use of the computer. I also didn’t turn the computer on at all during the day.
It was probably easier because it was holiday time and because we were doing things during the day. I didn’t miss facebook at all – shows how much time I waste on it now! And I got a lot more done.

I am looking forward to next year’s turn off week – would be nice to get something happening over here in NZ.

Thanks so much for telling your story Jeanna!  The computer is my downfall too.  I am glad you were so successful!  I agree that Facebook can really take up a lot of time.  Sometimes we don’t realize that until we cut it out for a week like you did.

If any other non-bloggers out there have a story to tell, send it to me right away.  I’ll try to get your words on the blog before this evening when I’ll pick a random participant to win a $10 Amazon Gift Certificate.

Come back later tonight to find out who won!
