Day Three - no power

Wednesday, August 12, 2020

I am currently at the loom house charging up everything I can. One small brick is fully charged. My brick that I bought to go with my e-spinner is at 62%. The brick that goes with the single-jumper system is at 88%.

I am glad to be here as home is starting to feel a little claustrophobic. I cannot sew masks. I cannot weave as the looms are in the basement and I do not want to use the lights when we might need them otherwise. I am almost, almost mind you, tired of reading and knitting! I never thought I would say that about knitting. I cannot skip from project to project as some have dark yarns that need really bright lights to do.

It is more that I am just tired of everything. Tired of the virus. Tired of all the crap with political groups demonizing each other. Tired of some people trying to rip off other people.

Power will probably not come to our part of town until Friday. I have friends that live less than a mile away that are all good. I have friends in another close town that have been told three weeks before power. I have farming friends that have lost 25 trees, the siding off one side of their house, outbuildings, and crops.

Dearly Beloved and I are very lucky. We know this but we are just tired.

    I hear you. It’s especially distressing that there’s no clear cut end to it all. We’re all living in a wait and see time.
    I hope that you’re surprised by an earlier than expected return to normal. emoticon

    ((((((HUGS)))))) I don't blame you for how you're feeling. I agree w/you. This whole situation, then throw in power loss, it . . . is . . . draining.

    HOPE your power comes on sooner than later!

    I think we all need a break from all that is going on. Our world feels like it is going to H$LL in a hand basket. And then we got the election coming up and all those back stabbing ads. Every where you turn there is Negativity. There is nothing good.

    we lost power for a week in october a few years back we put a table outside and did puzzles and played cards and played old games scrabble trivia pursuit, we went on rides to safely survey the damage . washed our hair outside . cooked on a firepit, we also went hiking were it was safe. wish I had ideas for you at least you can still blog and power up your devices . I hope you get power soon. Hugs

    I'm with you on this. We only lost power for a few hours but not internet, phone or TV for about 2 days. And as you say these are trying times indeed.

    We power on and
