Surviving an Emergency With No Power... in the middle of the night!

Having just lost our power a couple of days ago... for 6 hours, starting at 4 am, I am stocking up on stuff we had but couldn't find. Doesn't really help when you can't find things in the dark!! Here's my list. And I also hope that we never lose the power ever again.

1. Candles
2. Matches
3. Flashlights
4. Crank radio
5. Emergency Kit

Looking Forward to Bed... already

I thought that I slept really well last night, but today, every muscle in my back is aching. Not sure if I slept too long in one position, I'm in need of a new pillow... I go through them like crazy, or I have been working out too strenuously. Whatever I have done... I hurt big time today. As it is, it's close to 80 degrees and I'm sitting with a hot pad against my back! That just isn't right!!

Here's to a great night's sleep! I sure will be in need of one tonight!!

Thoughts About Dreams

We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams.”

With the FIFA Cup taking over our TV, I thought that some little football fans might like their own little soccer ball to light up their room! And who are we cheering... England of course!!

Do Yoga... you sleep in!

At least that's what I did last night and didn't open my eyes until 8:15 this morning. That's so not like me!

This is kind of cool and the fact that you can use it as a night light caught my attention too! The kids will love it!

I was shaking all over, and it wasn't from the vampire. Memories have teeth, too.

Well, it's the end of the month before the fence is put in and no date yet for the deck. I sure hope that it gets completed before the summer draws to an end... but I don't want to go there! I want summer to simply go on and on and on. Last night I was looking out the window and saw hundreds of tiny blinking lights from my bedroom. I think we have lightening bugs here!! I haven't seen them since I was a little kid! I was mesmerized. Which leads me to lanterns.

I have a few in the basement still tucked away since our move, but I think that I will dig them out today and settle them around the porch. Might as well put them to use!! But I know I'm not going to have enough. Can you ever have too many lanterns?? I just spotted these from Pottery Barn and I think that I will be paying them a visit sometime soon.
