On Saturday in the early morning, we lost electricity. Since we live in a condo where our electric is part of the condo fee, we are not on the bill for the electric company. So we can not call the electric compant to report outages. So my husband called the condo association - they told him to call the electric company. (He is going to the condo association meeting...) Anyway our hot water is on a boiler & most of our community had electricity so we each had a hot shower. (I can deal with the lack of electricity a lot more easily than the lack of hot water...) So when we were ready to leave, the electric company was out checking out the problem... It is/was not an electric company problem, so a private electric company is on site fixing the problem.
Skip ahead for a few hours... Jacob & I went to meet a friend for lunch,
bought some terribly cute onesies (One of them has an appliqued chick on it and it says "Spring Chicken."), went to a local quilt show (photos below & here from the black & white challenge blog), and we had dinner with my grandparents.
Meanwhile my husband, who declined the trip to Baltimore, found a fridge/freezer for our perishables. & as I arrived home, the private electric company broke down & brought in a heavy duty generator so that no one would freeze over night. I am assuming that they will return to finish the job today - they did not work on Sunday.
In comparison, yesterday was down right uneventful, so I will skip back to the quilt show.
My favorite - hands down!
The chicken border on this one cracked me up & made me think, "I could do that with cats..."
Here is one of the chickens:
Could I not share the only cat that I found?
Better late than never, eh?
