Sitting in the Dark

It was raining very hard this morning.  I could hear the wind blowing things around out in the backyard.   It was because of all that wind and rain (I guess) that our power went out.  I was composing some emails on my computer when there was a huge 'boom' and everything went black.  It was only around 8:00am.  But without power there is not much I can do. So I cut some little scraps for my OMG quilt. 

And when the power did not come back on, I went back to bed and fell asleep.  Kind of like Oscar here.  But he is faking it.  He's awake. Really he is! He just doesn't want to get up.  Kind of like me. 
But now I am going to do some kind of quilt-related activity.  Otherwise it would be a waste of a day. Wouldn't it?

Sometimes I love a day without quilting, but only when I choose to myself, not when I’m forced by a power break down!
Oscar is so clever, behaving like he’s asleep!

I was in the supermarket early this afternoon and their power went out. Their generators kicked on in about 10 seconds, but it sure was BLACK in there until they came on. Even with the generators, all the lights weren't on and it was strange to shop with such dim lighting!

No, sometimes you need a day of doing nothing.. But only if you want to.
I have a furry friend like Oscar doing the same. Only, when he thinks you not looking, he just opens one eye.. LOL. Cats and Dogs, you have to love them!
Hope everything's working properly now.

You poor girl. Must feel like a bad dream. Still having bad weather. Spring should have arrived by now. I wish you an endless summer, a beautiful finished kitchen and lots of time to quilt.
