Oh yeah, electric light! The lights are on, again!
After six days without electricity, Pink Gardens is ablaze once again. Well, it's noon, so it's not any brighter that it normally is, lol, but by tonight, I'm going to put on every light in every room. Just because I can. I'm so tired of hunkering down with a flashlight rigged to a floor lamp so I can read until my eyes get blurry—about an hour! I managed to read several books during the days, though—Kathy Reichs', Monday Mourning (Bones TV show character), Carson McCullers' The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Khaled Hosseini's, The Kite Runner, Stephen King's, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, and an anthology of short mystery stories collected by Alfred Hitchcock, so there is an upside to everything!
I have lots of photos to download, clean up and post, so give me a day or two. I have food shopping to do, as I had to throw out everything in the refrigerator and freezer. I have soaps to get caught up with, lol. I'm aflutter with things I need to do. With electricity!
Thanks to everyone that commented and sent emails. It's been an odd summer, for me, to say the least, and it's really nice to know there are people [out there] thinking about me.
