A new series of storms is blowing through. Our power is out. Again. But I have a handy generator now that I can start with the push of a button. I have nearly 10 gallons of gas. (Now I’m glad that Ross had just gone out and filled up all the gas cans right before our power came back on.) I knew storms were coming, so when I went to the grocery store today to start stocking up our bare refrigerators and freezers, I had the kids carry all the groceries to the studio and I started cooking dinner in the studio. I had tidied up the cords, but not put them away. We were back on generator power before you could say boo.
I am grateful.

There was a fitting celebration in light last night in the ‘hood. Everybody around here is happy to have their power back.
Before the party, my kids had their friends over, hanging in the (air-conditioned) studio, munching on cookies and chips, then rambling around the farm to see the animals. Ross was talking about a garage/shop he wants to build across the road here. I’m grateful to have a farm my kids enjoy and like to be and bring their friends. I’m grateful for the power company workers who got our electric restored. Grateful to have a generator and know I’ll never go through anything like those first six days without power again. Grateful to have good neighbors, too.
We’re in a good place.
P.S. Morgan and I are off to ride Zip tonight!Permalink
