Yesterday afternoon at 3:45 the power decided to go off....
No,at that point we did not have an ice storm or a blizzard.
It had rained most of the day, hadn't started to freeze yet. So I ask the powers that be, why oh why , does the electrical system break?... don't they know I am addicted to everything electrical.
I have important things to do like play my usual afternoon game of Scrabble on Pogo, flick thru TV channels looking for something that catches my attention on HGTV, the Food Network or the Mystery channel, not to mention starting supper... There was still daylight coming in the windows but night falls early at this time of the year around 5ish . Amazingly I did have my wits about me and set about lighting many candles throughout the house , particularly the bathrooms, note to self make sure I buy more matches this week. So while I fumed about the lack of power and worried about how long it would be off , a week ago power was off for over 8 hours.
After all don't "THEY" know the season finale of Amazing Race is on as is the creepy finale of Dexter.
Shaking my fist I ask "How could the Power Gods do this to me! "
Settling down somewhat I found my current mystery novel ,managed to read for a while by the light coming in the windows..... as I watched the minutes tick by , we have a battery operated clock so at least I could see the hours slip by. Torture.
DH had dug out a battery operated radio and several flashlights... he also
had the fireplace crackling so toasty warm we were.Being Canadian we are prepared.....
Ah, rather romantic , calm and peaceful.
Power back! after 2 and a half hours.
Thank goodness! this short taste of pioneer days is not for me....another note to self to make sure I stock up on batteries..
Pioneer woman I am not.
