Well, I'm sitting here snuggled up with Izzy in the midst of an ice storm that I didn't believe was going to happen. The weathermen have been announcing it's arrival all week and I have literally laughed in their faces! I have also laughed at the hoards of people running to get supplies to last through the storm. I refused to do that! Guess what? At precisely 4:15 a.m. this morning our electricity went off from ice on the electrical lines which resulted in a down transformer... it knocked out the whole neighborhood! Matt was quick to say, "I told you so!" even that early in the morning. It sure is dark without electricity, we're talking no lights... not even street lights! I felt like a hibernating bear. It was actually kinda nice. I did grab my blackberry and do some web surfing, like the electric co. and then the weather station to see the high for the day. Our power came back on around ten a.m. and we all cheered :o)! I then ran (really I did) to the kitchen and threw the turkey breast I had purchased to bake today into the turkey bag and then into the oven so it would be cooked for lunch. I let Amanda put potatoes in the oven and then she began "begging" for me to drive to pick up the boyfriend for the day since he would not be driving to church. I don't think he is familiar with slick roads... so I did. The roads really were not that bad. Just a few slick spots and the bridges were slick. I kinda like to get out when everyone else is in. BUT a quick stop into the grocery store showed me that many people were OUT. Most churches in our area closed for the day. Our church is canceled tonight, I would have gone this morning but we didn't get power in time to get ready. The turkey was perfect! I made carrots and we had rolls and the potatoes. YUM. I even cooked a frozen pumpkin pie.
Izzy is so much better today. Her fever is gone for the most part and she looks better. I am so thankful to all you guys for praying for her. God is so good.
I guess the only thing I have to do today is drive mr. boyfriend back home and hopefully that will happen before dark because it may get worse (I may actually let Matt do that)!
The kids are hoping (and probably praying) that school is canceled tomorrow. It could go either way. If you know the weather patterns in Oklahoma, we could all wake up and see a hot sun. Stranger things have happened, but this is supposed to stick around for several days.
I'm off for a piece of pumpkin pie! Hope you are having a blessed Sunday.
