The Joys of Power...

... Or the even bigger joy of not having it!

After my last post it got so windy outside it blew our power right out.  Fortunately, I knew where I put the candles and the matched.  It was great.  We sat infront of the woodstove with a couple candles and watched Green Acres reruns on the laptop (why to rough it, right?) and ate pitas.  The littles were so disappointed when the hydro blinked back to life, I have to admit I was disappointed too.  Partially because we were having such a lovely cozy time sans lights, and partially because you can't clean when you can't see the mess ;)  I might change my mind in the future, but I hope we lose power more often, I think it's healthy.
