If you can, please take a moment from your day and hop over to my cousin's blog to give her family a big heartfelt "woo-hoo!!" It'll mean so much. You'll see... xo
She's been saving. Now we have a ukulele in the house... and she's following ukulele loving people on twitter. Who knew there was such a culture? This morning she came down the stairs strumming a tune. I think the soft and warm Hawaiian sounds will be even more beautiful come February.
Wishing you a beautiful weekend!
Eight days without power. I learned a lot about myself, about how our family lives, and the sort of things we find necessary. We really did fine. My work was the biggest challenge but I managed to only be 'absent' for two days, and everyone was so understanding.
For a long time now (years), I've said the three most important elements of modern day living (for me) are indoor plumbing, the internet, and antibiotics.
I realize that's kind of a weird list. And certainly I appreciate many other points of modern life, but these are the three that I would choose if I ever needed to.
This extended power outage has confirmed that list.
I'm still pretty off schedule, the inside and outside clean up continues. In less than a week I'll wrap up this session of 30 Day Vegan (a little sad about that) and officially begin our homeschool year (a little overwhelmed that I don't have it all together... that's overrated, right?).
Mostly, I'm just happy to be back here.
Taken standing in my driveway, this is my neighbors house. That final standing trunk is leaning towards Emily's bedroom.
A quick note to say hello, we are all safe and sound. Irene hit here pretty hard, no power since Sunday, no power in sight. Lot's of clean-up ahead.
Adam wrote briefly about the storm (cannot believe they are not calling what we experienced a hurricane), I'll have more to share soon.
Hope you are all doing well... hello!
