Today was going to be another ordinary day, or so I thought! This afternoon, I was busy folding some laundry and putting it away, when I saw that the electricity went out. We had no power from about 2:30pm until just after 8pm this evening. It is amazing on much we depend on it! I did get all the laundry folded and put away. ( don’t need electricity for that!) I also made sure the girls practiced their piano before supper, while it was still light. I wasn’t sure how long the power would be off and candles don’t give a whole lot of light. Since hubby couldn’t do work on his computer, we had a fun time playing a game of scrabble together. We ate supper by candle light and afterwards I washed the dishes by candle light too. While washing the dishes, I had memories of when we first moved to an amish farm when I was 17. We lived without electricity for about a year and a half. It was a wonderful adventure, and I am glad to have experienced it. I have special memories of those times. That all said, I must say it was exciting, when we were able to turn a light on for the first time! The newness lasted for a few weeks too! Anyway, I was just thinking that when we don’t have something, we really appreicate it once we can have it again. We don’t often think about something that is apart of everyday living until it is gone.
She also loves to fold her hands, I think it is so cute!
This past weekend she had her very first walk in the snow! It was so pretty walking in the woods with the trees covered with snow. It was a lovely walk! She slept for the first half and enjoyed looking out from her cozy bundle during the next half.
All cozy and warm!
I’ll end my ramblings with a quote I read today.
