The storm season is upon us and we have had three storms in as many days. With the first one we only caught the tail end of it and the second one passed right over but with the third one we were not so lucky. It was one of those storms where the thunder and lightning were striking together and right above us for quite a while.
Fortunately we had no damage but did loose our power for over 2 hours just after 6 pm....right on dinner time preparation. I had seen this storm "brewing" for sometime and decided that we would eat a bit earlier than usual as I had a "feeling" that this storm was going to be worse than the previous two nights and being an all electric house we did not want to be eating a half cooked meal.
As darkness settled around us it was out with the torches - which provided enough light to see around the house but not enough to do anything such as sewing or reading. Hubs and I looked across at each other and decided that life without power is pretty dismal. I cannot image life without electricity - no lights, no tv, no computer, no sewing machine, no power to make a cup of coffee but that was how life was in the not too distant past.
Even though I was walking around the house carrying a torch I still was in the habit of walking into a room and turning on the light...a big cheer went up from us both at 8.30 when the first flicker of light appeared. It was on with the tv and off with the torches.
Before the power went off I was able to use my machine to make a small zip pouch with a mesh front.
When buying the mesh my choice would have been white but it was a case of take it or leave it.....black, black or black was all that was available so black it was.
And I am still in the dark as to how to fix my blog problem of not being able to receive emails from those who leave comments. I have gone into the screen that I went into a few months ago but it is different and I have tried to do what was done before in a couple of places but still no emails coming through. Thank you to those who left a comment on my "Help" post. Computers...….grrhhhh.
