Complexity And Simplicity


My complete reliance upon modern technology leaves me feeling overwhelmed when everything breaks down at once.
A simple clogged drain resulted in five days of using my bathroom sink to wash up kitchen utensils and pots and pans.
Dirty fuel heating oil that simply clogged my furnace resulted in no hot water unless the downstairs reset button was pushed repeatedly.
A popped-out-of-alignment rear hatch window that caused the car's computer to keep the dome lights running and weakened the car's battery resulted in no running vehicle.
My oven's bake-element having burned out and the part being on order resulted in no baking for meals.
Eeeek! All my stuff is broken! I'm healthy and happy, but geez, one thing at a time, please!

My sewing machine is running perfectly. I'm grateful.


Quick, think of something in your own life for which to be grateful!

Happy sewing!

Keep a close eye on that sewing machine! Since everything else is misbehaving, it might be tempted, too.

Oh, isn't that frustrating? Years ago I recall a time period where it seemed everything (including the car) broke down at our house all at once. I really feel your pain.
I'm grateful that right now this isn't happening to me (but sorry it is happening to you). : )

It does seem to go that everything breaks at once. I'm thankful for Blogging friends who can cheer me up when needed. Hope your day goes better today!

So true. We rely on too many modern conveniences don't we? lol

Sorry to hear about all your breakdowns! They do seem to run in streaks. It will sort out soon enough and as long as your sewing machine works, life is good. Hang in there!

My goodness, what an exciting life you lead! I know the struggles that our reliance on modern appliances and technology bring. Our water well went on the fritz and it was NOT pretty! We have a stream on our property, but I am just not prepared with enough buckets to haul water or big enough pots to heat it up in. Hang in there!
