Sunday afternoon...just before the start of a storm...we lost our power.
Never fear, we were completed prepared for such an emergency and have gone through them before. Luckily, this one lasted 36 hours. We have gone 5 days with out power and water in the past.
Although it was hot, we were blessed with a breeze. So I kept all the winodws open and let the air circulate the house. It kept things bearable inside.
Our generator kept our food cold/frozen. And last night, when it became unbearable, I plugged a fan into it! haha. Sunday night passed and McK* thought it would be fun to have no power. Fun until I told her that no power meant no pool b/c the pool couldn't open without it. Then, it was not fun at all. Plus with the generator running where the kids typically play, I could not let them splash in the hose or squirt things with the water bottles. All the same, the day passed pleasantly enough.
I even finished Villette...though I'm sure I missed subtle things in the novel owing to the French dialogs that I couldn't complete decipher. But oh! What of that ending? I'm going to ask Barb who announced it was her favorite book on my last entry!
Now, to vaccum the house and do the laundry.
