My miracle occurred about 3 hours later, when it was restored. I always pray for the lineman who have to work in bad weather to keep us going.
Anyway we got more than this, but not a lot. It didn't look anything like my beautiful header.) Since it had rained for days everything was ice. I called my power coming back on a miracle. I don't mind being stuck at home, but I don't like not have electric. I am not as prepared as Curtis always was.
Thursday, I cleaned and organized my pantry. Yes, I admit, I alphabetize my canned goods. It looks so much nicer when you open those doors now. I also made cookies and baked a homemade chicken pot pie. I was Suzie Homemaker. Why does snow make us want to cook, bake, and clean? Women are nesters at heart.
Remember, when I did the post on our stray chicken,Henrietta and my Mothers Day gift of a goat? I found this tiny picture.I also found one Dodd posted of Bo Jangles.
Thank you to so many who responded on my last blog. I didn't mean to imply I was going to quit. I just was wondering and still do why I do? I have to admit I enjoy it. I certainly appreciated all of the wonderful comments, and I want you all to know I value your friendship.
I have done a bit of tweaking the last few days.
Well I want to tell you about a catastrophe that happened yesterday. I LOVE Keepers of The Light, Almond Buttered Pound Cake candles. I have one of Irvins electric jar candle burners, I have used for years. I have had this particular jar candle for 2-3 years too. You can use them over and over.
Well, yesterday afternoon I noticed my candle smelled so good and off and on I would think it.(It sets on the short wall that divides the kitchen and great room) About 7 pm I looked and there was candle wax built up and running down my wall on both sides. It was the worse mess! It took me an hour to clean it up and I was so thankful there was no fire. I want to say, there was nothing wrong with either product, the jar had just cracked, probably because it had been used for so long.
It scared me to think I would leave it on when I was gone.
I am so excited Dodd and Renda have invited me to go to Williamburg with them. Have you noticed when you say Williamsburg every knows where you are going? You don't have to include the state!lol This is certainly not meant to offend those of you who live in Williamsburg, Ky. I am looking forward to this so much.
PS: Tamra has her surgery next week. Please pray for her. Also another dear friend has been diagnosed. So please add Patricia to your prayers. This woman is one of the nicest, sweetest, people ever.
PSS: Cindy over at Cindi's Country Corner is going to do a special blog series in February. I am going to join in.
PSSS: The house sale is going very slow. Just not the right time of the year, I know God has a plan, though so I will be patient.
