Power... pfft!

I'm sitting here in the dark. I guess the power company is working on something. The lights, heat, and puckity quit working at 12:00.

Bless 'em. It's getting a tad chilly in here. I thought I would read a bit and play a bit as long as I was so rudely awakened by the bleeeeeeep of the shut-off warning on my puckity, I guess I had slept just enough to be wide awake now.

They should have us "lit up" in a few hours. I suppose I will find out how long the non-replaceable batteries will last in my hat. I have no idea where another flashlight is. :-) Looks like they are dimming already. Haha. Cheap junk.

Have a Good Sunday!

  1. Oh, dear. We have power outages a bit in the winter, so Husband got about and set up a permanent generator installation. Then helped my Dad do the same. But yes, the batteries still get a work out (we only use it to get the fridge back up and running, usually. And maybe when I want to boil water or make dinner... Sometimes...) But yes, I hope the go juice starts soon for you!

    1. DH talked about getting a system like yours, he lost interest though for some reason as we would have to have one with enough juice to run a heater, fridge, and puckity.

  2. LOL! Love this pic of you... I have one of those things that I put on my head every night (in flea and tick season) to check Gracie for bugs. You should see her disappear when she see's me put it on... we are winding down though, and I shall be putting it away for the season soon. Hope you have 'seen the light' by now ;-) and you have been able to put yours away too. Have a good night.

    1. Yep, lights are on now. The power company does this whenever they feel a need, and I have no warning.
      Take Gracie out in the bright sunshine, those fleas shine like little jewels in the sunlight, pick them off and drown them in a container of soapy water. No pests or pesticides on the pup!

    1. I have my batter powered puckity - good for 4 hours in a pinch, also liquid o2 on the front porch. Works, but not for the longer periods of time. A couple days and I would be in trouble...

  4. With all the storms you have back there, you should get one of those lamps that run on batteries. I have two and they really help in an emergency. Stay warm.

    1. Yeah, we probably should have one of those. We do have oil lamps and candles - but they do smell...

    1. Haha, too old to leave 'Glamour' shots anymore. Yep they were doing routine service work, and don't warn a body ahead of time.

  6. Hi there! I wanted to stop by and give a heartfelt thanks to you for reviewing my story 10 Hours in Seoul on Smashwords. I couldn't figure out where to leave a message on Smashwords so here I am. After almost one year since I self published it, you're my second only reviewer (the other one on goodreads). It means so much not only that you care to take the time to write a review and rate it but the fact that you had enjoyed reading it is truly icing on the cake. Thanks so much for the support. You have made my day as a novice indie writer a lot brighter :)

    1. 10 hours in Seoul - a truly beautiful love story. I read a lot, most of what I read stays with me until I immerse myself into another story. Your story, Mitta, will stay with me a long time. I wish you much success and encourage my friends to read it.
