Welcome to my blog

Please don't remind me that I'm poor; I'm having too much fun pretending I'm simply "living green" like everyone else these days.

Lost power during storms

Terrible storms rolled through here yesterday morning. I didn't want to use the quilting machine during the storm so I just did a bit of busy work. I lost power at about 10 am. I didn't want to spend the whole day doing nothing so I cleaned up some of the cobwebs that constantly plague my house. Like this....

and this....

Swiffers are good for more than dusting floors ya know. It makes quick work of all those cob webs. Made a few spiders anger in the process. A good whack with the swiffer took care of that too.
The power came back on a little after 4 last evening. So I worked a couple of hours on stabelizing the next quilt. Everything in the freezer was still frozen when the power came on. Whew!

I spent most of today with Sean and his mother. The decision to turn off the machines was carried out at noon. Sean's father passed away at 2 pm. I came home to let the family have some time alone this evening. No arrangements have been made yet. I'm cooking some chicken, baked beans, and potato salad to take for their supper. It's almost done.
