The last blessing for us of course, was the fact that I picked up firewood on an impulse Friday morning. We haven't used this fireplace in 10 years because we aren't home long enough (usually!) But it sure kept us warm this storm.
So, during the storm, I read 3 books, made 6 cards for a customer of mine (oooh! I should take pictures of those!), and hung out with my hubby and son.
I wonder if this might be the beginning of a weather trend here, it has been the weirdest year for us. I am going to remain prepared just in case. Firewood ready! Flashlights a plenty! And batteries galore for when the next storm hits. In the man time, I have put away my retreat bags and and plan on doing those projects at home, sometime between now and Christmas. And, I am packing up for my next retreat at the end of the month. I am working on a new project at that retreat! I am going to give pocket scrap booking a try. I'll let you know how it goes. C
