We got our power back on last night and celebrated by using lots of electricity ;)
While it was out we ate lots of cold food, I started a new painting project (my walls), spent a good amount of time in the sun, read a lot by candle light, celebrated a birthday and went to bed early.
It wasn't as bad as it could have been.
I have to say a big Thank You to Gloria for such a lovely mention of my work on her blog! - that was a real treat to come back to... now I'm off to do battle with all the laundry that has piled up over the week, one thing I certainly did not miss doing !
