I’m in the Dark :)

OK I feel like a true pioneer 🙂 MY Telivision time was rudely interrupted by a stinkin power outage!!!! There I was watching the second night of dancing withthe stars the elimination and bam!!! nothing no lights , fans, and its 91 with the heat index ……. Oh fooey I only watch t.v. on Mondays and Tuesdays!!!!  The kids were outside playing all sweaty and stinky so the two younger ones had to get a sponge bath to get clean for bed and my battery operated candles are making great nightlights for them. I think the showers will have to be cold tonight since we now have a electric hot water heater as of last year with all the water leaks and all, Will was the lucky one to use the hot water and just made it out of the shower while it was still light out.

 My day with Brian was nice we went for a nice hike and the honey suckle scent was very pleasant and I thought of Leslie’s post and Lynn’s fond memories of her early married years. We found a few fossil rocks and one that is in the shape of a heart I will post that if I can later, We went to lunch at the Olive Garden in Champaign for the soup and salad lunch special and that was delicious. Back home to meet up with Melissa and Levi and then the kids came home from school with no homework so that was a nice way to end the afternoon. Early dinner of leftovers with the dishes done by 7:00 pm so I could watch my program is peace and quiet……..well it is quiet  lol  🙂 so I am typing in candle light to  on my laptop thank goodness my battery is charged 🙂 and will save this and post when the power is resumed.  I am grateful for cell phones and laptops and battery operated candles tonight. and the real candles too…….now if the kids will only go to sleep I could maybe use this as a nice ending of the night with my sweetie  wink wink  🙂 cuddling by candle light could be nice 🙂  Hope you are all doing well. I will check on your posts as son as I can.

Love and hugs to you all

Shelly

  1. I’m so glad to hear that you and Brian had several hours if peace and quiet to enjoy each other. Did you get to have the picnic you planned while on your hike?

    I bet the kids enjoyed the black out. “Roughing it” for a while. I had to smile at your being thankful for the cell phone and laptop.

    Glad your power is back on and your life is back to normal.
    Love you – Leslie

  2. It sounds as though you and Brian had a great day out pity you missed out on the cuddling by candlelight 🙂 That was mean of the power to fail during your favourite television programme but at least you could open the windows!! I bet the sponge baths were enjoyed!! Shame you couldn’t put the kiddies out in the garden and turned the hosepipe on them 🙂 That would have caused many shrieks!!
    Looking forward to seeing your fossils especially the heart shaped one.
    Sounds strange doesn’t it – using a laptop by candlelight, modern meets traditional lol

    Love and hugs
    Lynn xx
