Return of the Sun
Everything is drying out today. Other than losing power for about 3 hours during the worst of the storm Wed nite, I was fine. Hell, with no power, I was fine - I fired up the ipod, lit a buncha candles and settled in with a roaring fire, good tunes, and water heating on the wood stove for a cup of french-pressed coffee until the power came back on.
Gary, my wood guy, brought me some wood before the storm hit and will be bringing the rest this weekend. He is such a nice guy - brought it right upstairs and stacked it next to the stove and then was on his way to a thingie at one of the kids' school.
Monday I went shopping with Jen in Beaverton. I now have a fairly well equipped kitchen. Fork - no more excuses for not buying what I need to bake and cook as I should instead of going for the easy meal (laughing). Had a great time shopping with Jen, who knew exactly where to go for what I needed. I swear, she was born knowing how to shop.
