Weekend Recap

Our Electricity came back on, it was off for 7 days due to a Hurricane that came through these parts, you can read about it here and here
We decided to stop for pizza and start cleaning as soon as we got home, so we got home, started cleaning, everything felt so stale with no AC, or power, or water for 7 days. 
We cleaned then I needed to pick up some laundry detergent so we went back in town and also went for a ice cream cone... 
went to bed early as we were pooped from cleaning and from not much sleep all week. 

We had planned to get up at 7 am and go check out some yard sales but we didn't get up in time. I put a pork roast in the slow cooker while we went to run some errands. 
We had a meeting at 1pm at a restaurant close to us, we had coffee and pie and chatted, ( details to come) we then got a new table with chairs and went to buy some groceries, i made pulled pork for dinner, then I kept some of the pork and made nachos while we watched "The Lego" movie as a family, it was nice. 
I made cupcakes and prepped lunch for sunday. 

We didn't have to be at church til 10:30 because we had our Sunday School picnic today, it was a lot of fun but i forgot to take pictures.  It was a hot day and there was so much food there, I had dessert first because that's what was important ;) 
Sunday Night was bitter sweet, we had to say good bye to one of our sunday school teachers, she is moving away as she just graduated with a bachelor in education we are so proud of you Jessica but we already miss you.

Well Friends, my update is short, but it was a slow weekend :) 


  1. So glad you are okay, having been through the hurricane! Not having electricity can be such an inconvenience.

  2. I guess some of us don't realise how lucky we are not having hurricanes where we are...well done you. :)

  3. Wow! What a week. I am surprised they had garage sales that week if you did get up early. I am glad things are getting back to normal for you.

  4. Living with electricity is never fun, especially with kids. Glad you are all okay and enjoyed a quiet weekend!

  5. A week is a long time! Good on you for coming thru.


  6. Phew! Sounds like you had a full weekend considering you were recuperating from hurricane conditions and no water for 7 days! Ugh!

  7. Hey Terri

    I would be steeped in depression without electricity for even a single hour! I applaud the resilience of your entire family for making the best of a horrible situation #HUGSSS

    Thanks for this heartfelt glimpse into your life, sweetie

    Please keep writing...and shining your warm light upon us....

    LOTS of love

  8. I'm glad you and your family are safe. I completely understand. Living in Louisisna We were in the same situation lots of times. We take electricity for granted until it goes out for extended periods of time.

  9. That hurricane was terrible! Sounds like the rest of the weekend was good, though :)

  10. I'm glad you guys are ok. Big events make us grateful for the little things.

  11. Good to hear that you and your family are all fine! It is times like these that bring us closer together and have us reflect on the things we sometimes take for granted.

  12. I feel like this is a great idea for a post because think about in like 5 years you will be able to look back and say ofI remember that day!

  13. I need to take more pictures of the day to day... I'm terrible at taking pics as often as I probably 'should'!

  14. So glad your electricity came back! Last summer ours went out with severe storms and didn't come back for three weeks! I was never so happy to be able to do (usually tedious) chores like run the sweeper and do the laundry! -Jenna

  15. Wow, no electricity for 7 days? I don't know how I would stand that! And yes, always eat dessert first! ;)

  16. Hurray for electricity! It must have been hard 7 days, after a tremendous scare, too! Glad to hear you are all well and you had a nice weekend too!

  17. It sounds you toughed out a hard situation. Way to go!
