Our electricity went out for over an hour on Sunday. Luckily, it was neither 20° below, nor 100° above. And as it happened, I just happened to be sitting outside with Afton when it happened.
But as soon as I realized we had no “juice,” suddenly there were all sorts of things I thought I needed to do that required electricity. I needed to warm some food in the microwave. I needed to work on some blog posts. I needed to work on the online class I’ll be teaching in the fall. But, none of these could I do. 😦 So, I settled for reading a book for awhile, waiting for a frozen slice of bread to thaw naturally, instead of in the microwave, and then, even helping clean the house.
And finally, it came back on. And I breathed a sigh of relief. I couldn’t even have gone to the library to use a computer, because it was Sunday! Oh well, thank goodness I had been to the library the day before so at least I had new books to read. 🙂
