We had a major power outage here yesterday. At 4am, Aidan woke me, crying and begging for his owl light (nightlight) to be turned back on. I figured out that the power was out when I tried to switch on a light in the next room in search of another nightlight. We had no electricity all day. Thank goodness the weather had finally decided not to be 90 degrees.
We took the kids out for dinner, since most of our food was spoiling and we still weren't able to cook, and picked up donuts for dessert on the way home. So that's not a seance, that's donuts by candlelight. Make fun of me all you want. I light up every candle I can find when the power goes out. The only downside is that the mixture of smells can be a little...pungent.
And look! I finally lit up the spooky jars that Annie B. and I made last year!
