A Fun Time Was Had By All On Christmas Eve UNTIL...

We came home to NO electricity!! What the??!! This is the second time in a few months this has happened!

Have you ever tried gettin' into your house at night when its pitch black? Let me tell ya even when you think you know your home inside and out, (trust me) ya don't. Heck, I tripped over just about everythin' I could have tryin' to get up the stairs. I put Chevy Chase and Dick Van Dyke to shame. Then our very own "Tasmanian Devil" Gracie was growlin' at me when I stumbled through the door. She must have thought I was a clumsy burglar.

I know I always say this but thank the good Lord above for wood stoves! Not only did they keep us warm they gave us much needed light. Man, I don't know how those folks did it back in the old days before electricity. But I reckon they had black and blue shins from tryin' to maneuver around in the dark.

Prior to the unwelcomed power outage we had a wonderful time at mama's. We had a delicious Polish dinner then engaged in gift givin'.

Oh and guess what?? This mornin', there was a gift under the tree for me from my lil' pork rind Hannah.

Look what it was...

Thank you Hannah!!
I have officially removed you from my sh*t list.

Merry Christmas to all the family! I hope it was full of blessings. I love Hannah's present to you, and I'm glad she's off the list for a day or two!

Peanut - they didn't have black and blue shins because they usually went to bed at dusk or they had those ol' whale oil lamps. Hope you get your juice soon.

I'm thinking about getting a gas insert for the fireplace which works very poorly so we can have a source for heat. I hear they're pretty good.
