On Thursday I was happily tucked into the Boston Convention Center at New England Grows Trade Show, surrounded by gorgeous flowers and a plethora of trucks, tools and fertilizers to help your garden grow.
The following night, I was in the dark with a blizzard swirling around my house. You have to love New England!!
Despite the fact that we were without power (and mighty chilly) for two days, I did get caught up on some much needed sleep and some much loved reading. And I had a chance to reflect on how incredibly dependent I am on electricity. When the power finally came back on, I could barely wait 5 minutes to start the dishwasher and throw in a load of laundry. And then I spent this morning cleaning up the mess we made, trying to cook in the dark and live in front of the fireplace. I am currently reading two books, one takes place in 11th century England and the other takes place in 16th century England. While I shivered in my house for just two days, all I could think was how cold people must have been all the time without heat and the luxury of fleece layers! The wool capes they wore were undoubtedly more elegant than puffy down jackets and fleece pants but not nearly as warm!
But I digress. Happy Snow! Joy
