Then a very short 10 to 15 minute crazy storm came by on Saturday evening and took out our electric power and at least 26,000 others ...we did not have it reconnected for 18 long hours ...it was really cold so it was a matter of wearing jackets and sitting on the sofa with a blanket over us.
We are lucky enough to have a great two burner gas camping stove and a large gas camping lamp..
So I was able to cook and using a whistling tea kettle Danny was even able to brew himself up a pot of steaming coffee using a large coffee bag from a recent hotel stay ..
We really rely on electricity far too much ...no phone, no internet, lighting, cooking, heating etc ..
I think I finished buying items for our Christmas tree this year
It's a snowy flocked tree and is going to have a snowy, woodland animal theme
I was lucky and found some very cute things for it
Then this week I went back to buy some more but they had sold out of them at that store.
So I purchased some of these super cute foxes with lovely fur tails.
That also will go along with my theme along with the white fur snowy owls I purchased several weeks ago.

To depict Snow on the ground.
We bought a new tree last year and I put it in this old galvanized iron tub ...it looks great in it ...now it will look even cuter on the fur skirt.
Just $11 from Hobby Lobby Fabric area ...so much cheaper than buying a tree skirt ..I have seen fur ones like this for sale at $49.99
It's called Mascarpone Cannoli Cheesecake ...so I look forward to sharing that with you at the weekend.
I hope that you are enjoying getting ready for Christmas.
May you have a Wonderful Thanksgiving whatever you are doing
Happy days to you all
