We were just one in the million households in Washington whose power went out suddenly last Thursday night. Friday, still no power - chore list immediately cut in half, and the few I could do took twice as long. We finished packing for our trip to Tennessee by candlelight that night and woke up Saturday morning to a very chilly house (this is E. staying warm). We arrived to a much warmer Tennessee that evening.
I have a few things - crafty and thrifty - to show you soon. I hope everyone is having a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
