Last night ended up being real windy due to the aftermaths of Hurricane Zeta. And to top things off we had two power outages. One was about 2 am, which must have been short lived. And the other happened around five am. I was lying in bed, and when I looked up the ceiling fan was going slower and slower. At first I thought there was something wrong with the fan, then I realized the electricity was off. The outage lasted till almost 8 am. I was able to stream my news show on my phone, but I had no way to make my hot tea, as my camping stove was packed up in the POD. So I drank my de-caffeinated iced tea. Breakfast was a challenge. I had a banana, gluten free crackers and cream cheese.
Once the power came back on I took a shower, made some hot tea and headed out to Nancy’s. Usually Nancy, Theresa and I get together every Thursday, but this week, Theresa had some personal business to take care of. So Nancy and I chatted and worked on out knitting and crochet projects.
Afterwards I went home to make lunch and then drove to my doctor’s office, which is across the bridge in Lynn Haven. I give myself 45 minutes to get there but it is probably a 25-30 minute drive during mid day traffic. Then it was off to Publix to pick up some fruits and vegetables. On the way home, I stopped at my workshop to get my supplies for class tomorrow.
