But, just after the guests of our impromptu hurricane party left, we lost power at about 9:30 last night. It was great fun showering in the dark this morning. And I had no service on my cell, so I didn't know for sure if I'd have to work today (I do).
I stepped outside this morning to see if the service was better, and there were our new guests hanging out on the workshop porch like they owned the place. An orange and white mama cat and her two kittens - one gray and one orange. The orange kitten reminds me so much of our Alistair when he was a baby. He's the boldest of the three, always the last to dash away under the workshop when we approach. We've been leaving canned catfood out for them. I have high hopes of befriending at least the orange baby.
Believe it or not, we actually got something accomplished on the house yesterday. We sanded the drywall repairs on the guest bathroom wall and then painted the room yellow. I bought this fancy faux finishing kit with a double tray and double sponge roller. But the two shades of yellow paint I bought were a little too close in color, so you can't really tell it was faux finished at all. Oh well. At least it's not that dingy peachy-off white color anymore.
Again, I sure wish I could show you a picture. :(
