Power Outage!

Todd has had off this past week from work during the plant's annual shutdown.  He will also be off of work next week as well.  Since he has had off of work, he makes dinner every.single.night for us.  Yum!

Yesterday, our power went out just before I got home from work.  There has been a heat wave going through NE Ohio making it extremely hot in the house. 

So...what did we do during the power outage?

Eat Dinner Outside!

Use a phone book for the first time in years! (to call electric company)

Chill out on the front porch...

Go to the local Twistee for ice cream cones...

Spot a deer on the way home...

Try to find things in the dark...

Drive around taking pictures of the sunset...

(I love this picture of the sunset...)

Find a rainbow after a short drizzle and take a picture...

Come home to find the lights are back on!

We had a great evening together...without electricity!  We should do it again sometime soon!

  1. Looks like you had fun with it. I want ice cream. Ice cream makes everything better.

  2. Great pictures. You have a good eye for composing the shot.

    Enjoyed the comments too- what a wonderful way to use an evening. No reason you can't pretend the power is out every once in a while!

  3. Glad you were able to make the best of it. New follower from the week long hop. I would love for you to stop by to say hi & return follow!
