~ Power Outage and a Pendant ~

We had a very raw day yesterday , the wind was horrid , 51 mph wind gust. Yesterday afternoon around 4:30 pm we lost power , the power company gave a restoration time of 6:15 pm when I called in the power outage , but at 7:30 pm we got a call back and they said it would be 11:45 pm , so we lit the kerosene heater and closed off all the rooms except two. It was a nice quiet evening , hubby took a nap since there was no t.v. , I read the newspaper by the light of the oil lamp and decided to draw. We ate sandwiches and discussed goats , we may be getting a couple of female pygmy goats soon. I went to bed around midnight and Dh said he came to bed around 1:30am and the power was still off. But thankfully the power was on this morning when we awoke , so the house was nice and warm.

I won a pendant necklace over at Kristine's Herbal Roots blog ( )., she's having giveaways this month to celebrate her Herbal Roots Zine being 1 year old , you can leave a comment today for a chance to win the 2009 archive of the Herbal Roots Zine. I love this pendant , can't wait to wear it. You can see more of this artist's work here ( ).

Hope everyone is having a good day !

glad to hear you did not have to go long without power... yet sometimes for short periods it is a bit nice to slow down and enjoy the primitiveness of life...

Hi Mother Moon ~ That's so true !

Hi Flassie ~ I didn't enter the contest for the Herbal Roots Zine archive , I have most of those issues. Just thought I would share the link for others who might want to enter.

~ Many Blessings ~

Nice little pendant and it is always a treat to win something. Hope your power stays on. I hate wind storms!

Joyceann, glad you were warm and could just relax. The only lamp in my living room or in the house went out so we're using a candle lit lamp. It slows you down and makes it feel more quiet and peaceful doesn't it? Good luck with everything!
