Thawing Out

It's been a bit of a crazy week around here. If you've been watching the news, you've noticed that Washington State has been buried for about a week; first by snow, then by ice and falling trees.

Despite losing power and probably several trees once all the cleanup is done, we weathered the various storms pretty well. Life is starting to return to normal now, though many warehouses and schools are still closed due to a lack of electricity.

Having gone through 4 hurricanes (Charlie, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne), I'm no stranger to surviving without power. The days were spent knitting, playing board games, and listening to our battery operated radio. (Though the announcer kept pissing me off with his insistence that we 'go to the website' for more information on the storm. power, my friend.) 

Eating, on the other hand, was another story. I'm still eating VERY healthy, and do you now how hard that is to do when you can't heat anything up or cook at all? My life revolves around the idea that fresh, local (if possible), homemade food is the best, so quite literally, there are no snacky fast-foods available in this house. I'm happy to say that I made it work, though it was a heck of a challenge! (check the weightloss total at the top of the page!)

So now life moves on, thawing out and cleaning up. Though I love how beautiful it looked before it froze, I'm definitely ready to be done with snow for another year.
