Hi everyone! It's been a few days since I've been able to post. Early last Sunday morning my husband and I lost power because of Hurricane Frances and we finally got it back late last night. Almost four whole days! Whew!

Anyhow, there have been some positive learning exeriences with no power: cold showers feel really good (after the first brutal minute) and light by candlesticks is simply beautiful. Thank you to all those in my family who bought me candlesticks for my wedding, when you had no clue what to buy us! I also had to clean out the entire fridge and freezer of everything and toss it out. Now I have a fresh, clean start and less clutter to go bad.

I also found a new place to do my makeup. My bathroom doesn't give the right kind of lighting but I never really realized how much a difference good lighting would make. While doing my makeup in the spare bedroom, I had perfect indirect window lighting and I could see all my colors for what they REALLY look like on my face. Now that's a good learning experience!

Now I hope Hurricane Ivan doesn't go messin' with my power...
