More This N That
A very windy crazy evening. We had wind gusts up to 60mph! Our power was out for several hours. We have limbs down all around the yard and even one down across the driveway. I enjoyed the evening with light from the oil lamps and a nice warm fire. The woodstove kept my tea kettle ready for cups of tea throughout the evening. I had made a chicken and dressing casserole earlier in the day and made a crockpot mac n cheese recipe so I had supper which I warmed on the woodstove. My evening was quiet and relaxing while neighbors had no heat, lights or a way to cook their dinner. I love our simple lifestyle! The only thing was I couldn't get on the computer but I had the newspaper to read and also caught up on a devotional book I am reading. Sorted through all the catalogs and magazines to toss, keep or give away. I took the flashlight and checked on the animals. They were all snuggled down for the night. Diva's due date is the 10th and she has lost her "plug" and her ligaments are thinning. She seems to be right on schedule but wouldn't mind if she delivers a day or two early. Can you tell I am impatient?? LOL Well with the power back on I am going to turn off everything and head to bed. Have a great evening!
