Many houses in our area including us were without power for most of the day yesterday due to a planned outage for some upgrade work. We were advised that we could be without power from 7 am to 5 pm so it was a case of being up just after 6 am to get the car out of the garage and eating an early breakfast as we are an all electric house. It was also a good excuse to go out for lunch. On returning home still no power so the scissors had a good workout. I got stuck into cutting out some bibs for Network Heaven. I was asked if I could make another 20 for this year's shipment.
I managed to cut 10 out and did notice that the template that I am using - which I will add was used to make Miss M's bibs over 6 years ago - is looking quite fragile and needs to be replaced. It has been used countless times since then so it does deserve to be updated.
It was nice to hear the fridge spring back into life late in the afternoon just in time to get a cup of coffee and check out the emails etc.
Back soon and in the meantime
Power outages are a regular thing here and very annoying but thankfully Hubby drags out the genie.. We can then have the fridge on, watch tele, use the internet and I can SEW....
The worst thing for us is NO pumps so no water...
Good you had notice and had your day sorted..
Lovely to go out for lunch and also get some cutting done.
Power out can be a pain but I am amazed at how quick work is done, they must have so much to do with the weather and fires lately....
You did well, and a great escuse for lunch out...
We take our power for granted don't we.....glad you got some notice. Hope lunch was enjoyable xx
Thats a long time to be without power, it's something we all take for granted until it isn't there. Nice collection of bibs to see.
