What! Is this like the dark ages or something?!

He was tall with dark hair and a quick smile.
I thought now what does this hunk of a man want?
And then he said," I am going to turn off your electricity."
What! Now??? No, we are working.
Well, I have to.
No longer charmed by his boyish looks I said, "No."
Well you know who won that argument...
No electricity means, no wheels, no computer, no work.
Blah! Nothing to do but pack it up and take a day off.
So, off to do a bit of nothing and have a massage and some dinner.
Maybe we can work a full day tomorrow.
More later, I hope, meanwhile keep your grubby hands off my electricity!

Tall dark and handsome, and then, what a bummer, take it easy when you can; I know easier said than done.

He must have been around my neighborhood on Tuesday, we had no power most of the day. Thank goodness we are having this warm weather!

Hope you're all relaxed and well-fed... with power restored. Any chance the electricity stealers are heading in this direction?

No power at our house today either! But downtown still had power so the studio was a great place to go, get warm, listen to some tasty podcasts and hang out. Even got the hubster and puppy with me for the afternoon... Power came back on right after dark here at the house. With the storms here this week, it most likely will go out again. Ah well... I like your idea of getting a massage when the power goes out.

I have a nice quiet kick wheel (saviac) to throw on, A gas kiln to fire in (bottled, so off grid)(too near houses for woodfiring)
I have the sunlight to work by.

Horse and buggy sounds fine by me :-)
