Yesterday was a different day! It started out normally. I was up early and actually finished all my reports before it was time to go feed Talbot & Marcel. Thank goodness as it turns out. I had completely forgotten (even though it was on the calendar) that our power was going to be off from 9 to approximately 2:30. A planned outage as they replaced a pole at the bottom of our street.
I got home from C&M's about 8:50 a.m. and was going to do some laundry, but promptly at 9 the power shut off. Of course that meant no internet service either, so work was out of the question (not a bad thing in my mind).
Luckily it was a sunny day, but the house still became rather chilly (we have electric heat). Finally at 11:30, we left and went out to lunch - to get a hot meal and sit somewhere with heat on!
The power did come back on just about 2 p.m. I managed to get two loads of laundry done and had a rather busy work afternoon.
Fletch grilled some steaks for dinner (which were not that good) and I made some smashed potatoes and roasted Brussels Sprouts with a bit of EVOO, some maple syrup, a touch of dijon mustard and S&P - roasted at 425 for about 20-25 minutes and they were delicious!
Finally, here are the two cats for Feline Friday:
One of the plants C&M brought up from Texas is a succulent - a Sunburst which is very pretty. Some of the "petals" had fallen off, so I gathered a few up and now have them planted. Hoping to have my own Sunburst eventually!
Time to pour some more coffee and dry my hair - my head is cold!
Happy December and Happy Friday!
