The Remote Control

Sooner or later the batteries need changing.

  2. I had to change my remote control batteries a couple of days ago. Where were these workers when I needed them?

    Love,

  6. Oh my gosh Martha, I LOVE your mini's...I'm so glad I found your blog! Funny, the first thing I thought of was that I haven't had any type of remote in over 7 years now since I gave up television! I used to have so many...for the tv, dvd player, cable box thingie...and back in the day for the VCR!!! :)

    1. This is my playground, Rain! I love letting my imagination go wild and putting together these scenes. It's a lot of fun.

      Remotes can quickly add up. Nowadays you never don't to get up to do many things, which is kind of sad in my opinion. And then there are the apps. I've seen an ad for blinds that you control through an app. How much effort does it take to go to the window and do it yourself? LOL

    2. Funny you say that, I remember watching an interview with a refugee from Africa, and something he said really stuck in my head. (I'm paraphrasing) "North Americans don't like to open doors for themselves." Then he went on to describe how surprised he was seeing revolving doors, automatic doors and buttons people push even though they could easily push the door open, lol...it really made me realize at that point how naturally lazy our society has become! That's funny about the window control. We watch reruns of "Ask This Old House" and there was one episode where they made the whole house "smart"...to me that's a recipe for disaster!

    3. This is funny! They must think we're nuts. Or unbelievably lazy.

      And I agree with you about the 'smart' house business. Truly a recipe for disaster. These things just don't interest me. Keep it simple. That's my preference :)

  7. Don't you just hate it when the batteries go flat!
    The little folks are doing well here.

    All the best Jan
