thankful

Today is a day of thankfulness.
For:
A washer and dryer.
A working refrigerator.
Fans.
Clothes line.
Communication to the outside world.
Lights.
Water.
Flushing toilets.
The basics that I take advantage of every single day and not realize it.

After a 19 hour stint of having no electricity (which also means no water and no septic), I am truly thankful for the every day items in our home. It made today a really fun adventure though!!

Yaaaay for electricity! It's great that you can change an annoying situation into an adventure for your kiddies! (er, or were you using that word facetiously??? ;) )

Did they ever tell you what happened!?

No facetiousness here. :) We actually did have a great day!

Tree went down further down the road, pulled the line down and snapped the pole two houses down in half. Thankfully our fridge "full" of food did not perish. :)

Wow. That's a pretty big deal. No wonder it took so long. Just a dead tree or what?

Good for your food! That's always a big worry!
