Of course I've totally forgotten what I was going to write about. Maybe it was nothing. Maybe without the power outage I wouldn't have anything to put in this entry. It was, after all, the most interesting thing to happen here in quite a while. At least as far as I can remember, which isn't very far anymore. I have a vague impression that my memory used to be a lot better, but maybe it wasn't. That's another thing I've forgotten.
It's a good thing I've got a gas range, as I was able to heat up a can of soup for dinner, and to heat some tortillas over a burner as well. Later I finished off a carton of ice cream which I feared might melt, but it was only soft, not melted, and the power came back on not long after, so I guess my other frozen stuff probably survived. However, I am now overstuffed with ice cream, and will have to replenish my supply when I go shopping.
And I will have something to go shopping with, as the nephew has finally paid the money he owed me. And that's another good thing, because Safeway finally has pumpkin pies on sale this week. I wait all year to get pumpkin pie at a decent price, and I'd have hated to miss the sale. Now if only I can find a pair of pants to wear.
