The dinner bell that now stands tall on our new back porch
Let's just say, it's good to be back to normal life. The last two weeks have involved many new and interesting events. The Storm of 2012 hit the area like a whirlwind, literally and figuratively, which left many in our area without power. We were fortunate to only have lost electricity for just a short time, while others near us were without for 13 days or longer. We were home to ten people for 8 of those days, along with their refrigerators and freezers. It was a vacation we will never forget, especially to us since we got a new back porch out of the (or)deal. There were many a meal cooked and devoured by the crew - we even laughed about all the pounds of sugar and flour and gallons of tea and water that were consumed during those 8 days. The gardens started providing for homemade french fries and mashed potates, fried squash, and cucumbers and onions...and the best of all, tomatoes for sandwiches and cottage cheese. Life here centers around the dinner table, can you tell?!
