THAR SHE BLOWS

We're in the middle of storm number 2 so far this winter...60 mile per hour winds: it sounds like a freight train outside. It's not cold enough for snow, but the forecast is for sleet. We've lost power already once, right as I was preparing dinner, so our halfway-heated mashed potatoes were warmed with the bernaise sauce that Anders had JUST finished making. Thankfully the schnitzels were already done!

It could go out again any moment, so this will be a short one just in case. I have my list of Christmas cards to start working on, plus Martin's birthday presents to wrap, and a big book I'm in the middle of, all pleasantly electricity-free pursuits. Karin and Martin are out walking the dog. Karin was so excited by the storm that she wanted to go out in a bikini and flip-flops to "really feel it!" NUTBAG CHILD.

I hope we don't lose power so much that we lose water too, and I hope the storm is past by tomorrow since I'm heading to Copenhagen with most of the Wonders for the Crazy Christmas Cabaret tomorrow!

Not much to say really...how did I manage to find blog fodder for every day in November?
