Sorry I am sooo late with today’s post but I didn’t have power until this afternoon. It was down 30 hours in total after Mother Nature’s little wind storm/tornado yesterday. The animals and I were huddled in the kitchen. A 65 pound dog sitting in my lap shaking like a leaf (he has a really bony arse too)with two black cats pasted to my sides. It sounded like a train coming through the house. Every time a tree branch would break off and ping against the house, the animals would jump.Power went out yesterday morning and didn’t come back on until 3 this afternoon only to go back out an hour later for another hour. It’s up for now but I’m not sure for how long as the power company is still working on the lines down the road. Our road was closed yesterday when the wind flipped a transport onto the driver’s side pinning the guy inside. They opened the road a few hours later after they removed the driver, the truck and cleaned up the mess. Trees are down all over the place and hydro poles have snapped. There is some damage to our roof and our neighbor’s roof as well. Our other neighbor lost his picture window and has considerable roof damage. Tomorrow Steve has 3 roofs to repair before he goes to watch the UFC fight.
As scary as yesterday was I still had to drive in it. The night before I had Julie in the ER with an ear infection and I had a prescription that had to be filled. Over 9000 homes in our county were without power which also meant the 3 local pharmacies had no power. I called later in the afternoon and they JUST got power back but weren’t taking any prescriptions. Sooooo….off I go in my little truck (
piece of shit), pick up Julie (because I didn’t want her in the school bus with 70 mph winds. Off we go to Caledonia to get her prescription and to go to McGag ‘n Retch for food and then to Hagersville to her baseball practice. We waited there for over 2 hours before discovering the practice had been cancelled so we had to drive back home in the wind. Was I amused? No. Scared shitless was more like it. I could feel the truck lifting and rocking and my knuckles were freakin’ WHITE. We get home to a dark house, hubby gets home late .
This morning I was woken up at 4 am by the sound of the hubby firing up the generator to get the furnace going (house went down to 65F. Brrr). He also plugged in the TV and the coffee machine so I could have coffee and watch the wedding before having to go to the city this morning to see the periodontist. I got to watch everything but the kiss before I had to leave. A shower would have been better though. Trust me on this…ROFL~!
Holy hell is this a gorgeous bag. Seven products for $5!!…I had hoped to play with it the other night but I was at the hospital with Julz and then Mother Nature decided to mess with the planet yesterday… Full reveal in store. Treat yourself. It is fabulous!!!!!

That’s it for me for this weekend. The power is still on so I’m going to take the chance to pour a hot bubble bath while the getting is good and have a good soak/scrub with a glass of chocolate liqueur and some candles (just in case). Have an awesome weekend!!
