We traveled for 20 hours on Wednesday and are gradually recovering from jet leg. Spring is just on the brink of arriving. A strong storm blow through yesterday, with wind, thunder and lightning. Our Davis Weather Station reported the highest wind since we’ve lived here: 42 mph. Lots of power outages.
Our county is the one where hardly anyone has power. I was happy to use my Coleman lantern and candles last night, while we read and knit. This is the Forest Path stole I began the plane to Ireland. It’s too complicated to put down and I’ll keep knitting it. At the airport security check, they asked me if I had knitting needles in my bag. I said I did, with two weeks worth of knitting that they could not have. They laughed, confirmed I had knitting needles and let me pass.
We set up the generator and all is well. Today is glorious and sunny. Lots of birds singing,. and the woodpeckers are hammering away. It was a long winter indoors. What I love most about our travel and caretaking lifestyle is the opportunity to spend long stretches outdoors.
But Tim needed his headlamp to play the piano today.
And apparently we’re having company!
