This morning the power went out at 7:30, our 4th power outage in almost as many days. Our area is well-known for it's raging East winds that happen in the winter. It's been howling like a banshee for weeks now. It sounds like a jet engine going right over your head. SO.. yesterday for the 3rd morning we had no power.. Dayle and Kristi got the generator going and the power cord to keep the pellet stove going. But what to do with no TV or computer? Well.. I suggested the boys draw a picture.. of Santa and his sleigh. :-)
I kept busy crocheting my son Shawn's hat, blanket on my lap, Buddy cuddle there too.
The pellet stove saves our lives, but need electricity to run, kinda silly, huh?
I was so impressed with the boy's drawings! Hayden is such an artist!
That's the moon up there in the sky.
Caleb put all the houses below Santa.. I thought that was cute.
Caleb told me how they dropped the gifts from the sleigh and elves would go down and make sure they got down the chimneys and into the homes. :-)
They always ask me what they should draw, so I suggested Caleb do the Christmas tree. This is the one he did. I guess I should be happy as my gift is as tall as the tree! :-) I asked him if HE was my gift? :-)
I got some new candles for my candelabra and lit them last evening so I could show them to you. The ball candles are pine scented which is neat.
Thank goodness for candles during power outages.
I did a thorough dusting and cleaning of my candelabra, lots of nooks and crannies to clean. But it's shining now!
I walked into the den and saw that Buddy had found the blanket I used on my lap and made a nest in it. Cute little guy.
I must rush off now to my DAR meeting (Daughters of the American Revolution). I hope you have a wonderful week ahead! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
