Nova Scotia got hit with a major storm last night/today...with snow, and hurricane force winds....we lost power this morning, thankfully we have a generator, however, our main source of heat when the power is out (only source actually) is our pellet stove and we are unable to get pellets this year!! We have ONE bag left from last winter that is sitting by the stove in case we need it.....our power was off for a few hours, and then came back on, so the house warmed up...then it went off and is still off. We are expected to get power back my midnight. Some parts of the province may not get it back until tomorrow night. If there is one thing I am forever thankful for...it's our generator! We had it installed when I sold my parents home, and it will last a couple of weeks! It's wonderful!!
Tonight I plan on sitting in my stitching chair, with my heating pad for heat...LOL and stitch the evening away. DH has to go pick up our daughter at 11pm at work. Her boyfriend came an picked her up earlier today and drove in. Speaking of boyfriend...I gave him his present from DH and I on Saturday night, as he is leaving tomorrow to spend Christmas with his grandparents....and parents ofcourse.....anyway, I had made him one of my blankets and was truly touched by how much he loved it!! It's nice when a handmade gift is genuinely appreciated. I did not take a photo of him with the blanket, wish I did!!
Take care...stay warm........and will post again tomorrow when I hope the house is a bit warmer!!
