So much has happened in the past week. We spent four days with out power. We had a bad wind storm on Sunday and the power went out. We used our kerosene heater and two kerosene lamps we had. The one above was my Grandma's. She used it, my parents used it, and now we use it. We camped in our livingroom. It wasn't too bad. The worse thing...my treadle sewing machine's belt is broken so with no electricity I couldn't sew. Don't worry I have been knitting and crocheting.

My husband got a bad absessed tooth. They couldn't get the infection out, it only got worse. Yesterday he had to have the tooth pulled. I have spent several days going back and forth to the dentist with him.

Today is our only daughter's 13th birthday. I now have two teenagers. I just don't feel that old. What did we do. Shopping of course. I took her to buy a new Bible she wanted. Then we told her she could not wear make-up until she was 13. She and I went shopping for make-up and a lighted mirror. I showed her how to apply it. I probably am not the best resource though, I never wear make-up. I have, but only rarely. The rest of her present will happen over the next several weeks. We are helping her paint her room and I am making her new curtains.

Sew Long for Now!

Ugh - the dentist. Bless your hubby to go through all that. I've spent my share of time in a dentist's chair getting root canals that ultimately failed. I think if I ever have to get one again I'll go to the specialist. He did my 2nd root canal on a tooth and it took him 30 minutes rather than 3 hours.

I never wear makeup either. I'm allergic to all of it. *sigh*
