ICE, RAIN, and SNOW!
That's the caption all over the news this week! We had a terrible ice storm that knocked out a lot of power lines, including mine. Jeremy and I and the animals ( 2 dogs and a cat) were without power from Saturday around 2pm til Monday morning. YIKES!!! It was fun at first- playing board games by candlelight and watching a movie on my laptop under 6 blankets... BUT it got old! Sunday we went to get a hot breakfast to find nothing was open anywhere around us. We ended up 20 miles away in line for 20 minutes at McDonalds. As a vegetarian. McDonald's is the last place you want to end up! Let's just say it is over and I am so thankful! No school since we have no power- that's one good thing!!!!
I found out you can still make 1 inch squares by candlelight- here is a sneak preview of some of mine for an upcoming mail swap, I made over the cold icy weeeknd!
