I’m very thankful for a quiet weekend. Things have been a little stressful here in our little town outside Los Angeles. A mighty wind storm blew in on Wednesday night, toppling trees and knocking out the power. We were without electricity for three days and, only this morning, the Internet came back on. The town was getting ready for the Christmas tree lighting ceremony this weekend. But, alas, the city’s Christmas tree — a huge pine that has stood for decades — was destroyed by the wind.
Not all was terrible. We spent two evenings reading by candlelight and listening to music on my daughter’s iPhone. (She has a very good selection of “heartbreak” music, including everything by Adele. Very bittersweet.)
Anyway, life is getting back to normal. I’m going resist the urge to spend the entire day on the Internet, which I missed most of all!
What are you doing this weekend?
