I've been sick with a head cold, which I still have and I've also been out of power. We had high winds with driving rains and lost our power last Thursday and just got it back on yesterday! Our house got down to 42 degrees and I was cold!!!! I was wearing 2 pr socks with heavy slippers, fleece pj's, t-neck, two sweaters, fleece jacket and a winter coat over that! Once the sun went down, there was absolutely nothing to do! I was bored to tears until I finally found my husband's head lamp, put that on my head and started reading! (psst, the photos look like we have lights on, but it's because the flash was used)
We've lived in Maine for 21 years and weathered lots of storms, but we've never lost power for more than a couple of hours--we've been fortunate because of the area we lived in. This time though was 3 days and although that doesn't sound like a long time, it seems like forever when you're cold. We brought up the propane stove we use for camping and cooked on that. We don't own a generator nor do we have a wood burning stove, so we had no way of keeping warm other than bundling up. What was so weird was that every house around us had power, except 6 houses on our street---very odd!
But, we survived and are thrilled we have power back. It's amazing how much we depend on electricity.
But, anyway, I'll be posting some tutorials and some things I've been working on in the next few days. Oh, I also have to post a mini album I recieved from Dawn that is absolutely gorgeous! Wait until you see it. For now, have a great day, and a wonderful night. I'm off to work.
