Bedrest Chronicles Day 52
For my birthday present, my day brought me forty mph winds, a twelve hour power outage, pumpkin pie, and flowers from my hubby! Being a city girl, before today I had yet to discover the joys of a power outage when you have your own well. Hmm. No power means no water either! I don't mind the lack of electricity but not being able to flush when you're pregnant? That's a different story!
Despite the inconveniences, I had a rather nice day. It's already quite chilly up here, so I first bundled up in a sweatshirt and warm socks. Then, my dad and I basked in the warmth of my fireplace, reading and watching the birch trees bend in the wind. Sigh. Around noon, a man came knocking on the door with a flower delivery from my hubby. This makes the second time in ten years that he has sent me flowers in our ten years together so I was all smiles. His note....incredibly sweet and heartfelt. This evening when the electricity came back on, we were able to crack open our refrigerator in time for me to celebrate my day with a huge slice of pumpkin pie. All in all, it was a simple peaceful day.
