Why I haven't been blogging

We lost power almost two weeks ago, and we HAVE had it back for a week, so it's really only half an excuse:
electric meter
We had to have electricians come out to replace the electric meter.

tree across road
Of course, before that, they had to cut up the tree that fell across the road and pulled down the neighborhood lines.

tree branches down
A couple of big branches came off the box elder in the yard.

snapped pines
And a couple of pine trees got snapped off about 20 feet above the ground.

I haven't done *any* quilting. I was going to make the tween a pair of pajama pants, but I don't have enough material for her height. She's gotta stop growing sometime, right?

I didn't realise that you had suffered that much.

No they don't stop growing. I can buy Gemma a pair of trousers for Christmas and by Easter they are half way up her legs.

love and hugs xxx

Uhhh these storms have been awful. Why not just make a pair of pj capri's??

I'm glad that you guys are OK, if not a little worse for the wear. At least the power is back now. I couldn't imagine being without power or water even for a day much less almost a week!
