Planned electrical outage

As opposed to the surprise ones we get every once in a while.

I guess if I'm going to write something today, I'd better get 'er done. We've been notified that the electric company will be doing maintenance and we will be without electricity (because we always have POWER!) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. today.

I've already filled two carafes with coffee. That should last until 1 p.m. HAH! Not much more I can do to prepare. I think I'll take a long walk beginning at 9 a.m., and till the vegetable garden when I get back from the walk. It's going to be very nice today – mid 70s, mostly sunny, might be a little humid but once I get started I hope I won't notice.

And I'll do 30 minutes on the rower today, too. I'm going to row every other day, because there's just no reason to go completely crazy with intentional activity. My husband says it's easier to remember Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but I'm pretty sure I can keep track of every other day.

I hope the electric company is correct in their time frame, because I'm surely going to need a shower when I'm done with all of this sweat-producing exercise! And out here in the Middle of Nowhere, when the electricity is off, the water is off, as well.

Other than that … not much to report. I hope your lights stay on and your coffeemaker brews. All day long.

Ah, coffee. The stuff is amazing. If too much of it wouldn't wreck my stomach, I'd probably drink it all day, too. Who needs sleep, right? :)

Sounds like you have the day planned, electricity or no! Here's hoping the company sticks to the time frame.
