It’s like a magic pot. On Monday, I put a big piece of lamb in the slow cooker,. Then, all week long I kept the meal going by just adding some more vegetables from the garden. Voila! Once again we have another delicious dinner .

This method was perfect today as I have been fighting with some technology problems on my phone. It is a good reminder to me that Sunday is meant to slow down. I do look forward to the day when I can disconnect from the Internet, urgent work items, and news that is more nonsense than necessity.

People think I’m crazy or maybe nostalgic when I wish my car didn’t have computerized stuff, or my appliances left the smart part up to me or when I say that plugging something in is better than batteries that soon disappoint. For a steamy Sunday in August, I stick with that opinion, that old school is often the best method.
