Brrrrrrrr by Ree

kidsI’m checking in with a brief update from the open prairie. My laptop has 2% battery left and my wireless internet device is almost kaput as well. Our power went out last night because of the storm, so Marlboro Man, the kids, Betsy and I huddled around the fire, where we sang camp songs (Marlboro Man elected to just listen; ha) and told spooky stories until about midnight, when the power came back on. God bless the dedicated technicians that get out there and answer the call on nights like that.

As luck would have it, our heater blew a fuse when the outage happened, so we didn’t have heat in half our house during the night, but we kept the fire going and kept the faith…then this morning, the power went out again. But that’s okay! We have a roof over our heads. And way more songs to sing, lucky for Marlboro Man!

I’ll be back once I go round up more firewood, make coffee on the stove, and throw on yet another pair of socks.

Everyone stay safe out there!

I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas.
