Hurricane Cooking - Day 6. Is our porch light on?

Tonight it was my turn to pick up something for dinner. Chris had come in with 2 fantastic meals and I could not even think of what to buy. I stopped at Whole Foods, thinking surely I would find something. Nothing jumped out at me. I ended up buying some Roast Turkey Breast and a pound of Quinoa and Chickpea Salad.
As I approached our street I noticed that a house had lights on. I figured they had a generator. Then I turned down our street and I saw our porch light on! Then I saw a light go on in the living room. I was in tears by the time I got out of the car. I was so happy. Lights and running water!
After having a celebratory cocktail in our brightly lite living room the dinner I picked up was not that bad after all.

I'm glad to hear things are back to normal for you. This is my first visit here in years. It's good to see the site functioning again. I was an admirer of your Mom and can see she left her blog in good hands. I'll be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
