My power that is!
We’ve been powerless for about 4 hours now. In a way it’s nice to spend uninterrupted family time, but only if it doesn’t last all week!
Thankfully I have a gas stove and a gas fireplace, so we’ll survive. Unfortunately, we have no back up generator for the sump pump so The Husband has been manually dumping buckets of water out the back from the basement.
It’s been raining non-stop for at least 24 hours already and shows no signs of stopping. The winds have really picked the last few hours too.
Besides that, I had a great day! This morning the kids and I made some experimental Pumpkin, Oat and Seed bars.
Hopefully I’ll get the recipe up sometimes this week.
I also made a great steak and potato dinner all on the stove top and have actually been keeping up my food journal pretty well. I may have to put it on pause thought to save phone power at this point. We’ll see.
After dinner the kids put on a little Dance show for us.
Even The Husband joined in.
Right now he’s putting them up to bed and I’m looking forward to some cuddling by the fire. No TV. No computers. Nothing.
Ok, I’m off. I have to reserve as much battery power as possible. We may be in for a few black out days here.
