I wrote this post yesterday, but it failed to upload. I’m out and about briefly right now so am attempting to send before I’m back home and cuddled into my bed again. We are still without Internet after the storm, but as I mentioned below we’re better off than many.
I’ll admit, if this actually posts? I’ll be shocked. We’ve had some rather severe weather here the last couple of days. It all started yesterday around 11:00, but it looks like we’re mainly in the clear now.
We had tornados, super intense winds, hail storms, lots of thunder and lightening… It’s been a little intense. I’m surprised we have as many trees still standing in our yard as we do.
We actually got off pretty lucky. Aside from a lack of Internet starting at about 2:00 today, and a bunch of huge branches down in our yard, we’re a-okay. Some towns have been without power since yesterday, and some folks don’t have much of their houses left. With me being sick in bed all day it was almost like today’s craziness never even happened.
My being sick ended up being a bit of a blessing in disguise. It was the girl’s first day of Summer vacation, so she had big plans. She would have been upset over Mother Nature ruining her day, but was okay with it being wrecked because I was sick.
The two of us grabbed her crafting buckets and spent the day in bed. Drawing some “old school” G1 My Little Ponies, coloring pictures she printed out, and playing games of X’s & O’s (that’s tic tack toe for those not in the know).
The girl is fast asleep beside me now, and I plan to join her as soon as I attempt to submit this post from my iPhone. No late night TV time for me tonight. I need to get better so we can start her Summer holiday’s “for reals”. 😜
Building blocks can refer to any number of things, especially in a metaphorical sense. Anything you use to build up to something better is, essentially, a building block. Today though I refer to them in the literal sense… building blocks.
The wee girlie got sick last night at about 2:30 a.m. and hasn’t been well since. No fever though, thank goodness. But that’s meant that we’ve kept today really nice and low key. In the afternoon we spent a couple hours sitting on the floor building with her mega blocks. Something that she loves doing, but that doesn’t require much physical investment.
If you look closely, you’ll see Lily-Ann in the bokeh surrounding her block house.
Here are a couple other shots of the house… playing with my depth of field a little.
