Pioneer Woman

No not that Pioneer Woman. I spent today with no electricity. All day.  We had a ginormous storm last night, which knocked out  power to tens of thousands of my fellow neighbors. No electricity. All day. No computer. No internet. Just like a pioneer woman.

Guess what? I really didn't miss it. And I was productive. I cleaned my bathroom. Swept all the floors. Emptied the dishwasher. Dusted. Cleaned up fallen branches from the storm. I was surprised how much I was able to accomplish without the internet electricity.

Did some knitting. Ripped out the knitting. (But don't you think my stitch markers make this look like a charm bracelet?)

And opened some really happy mail!

Obviously since you are reading this post, my electricity is back. And I am grateful. There was no damage to my house. And for washing machines and coffee makers!


  1. Hi Debbie, Love your knitting! It does look like a lovely charm bracelet. I would love to make a polka dot crochet hook for you. Email me on the size and colors you would like. I think you know my email address I know what you mean about being productive when there are no internet distractions. But I do enjoy all our luxuries electricity,blogs, coffee, and clean clothes. We are all so blessed. xoRobin❤

  2. Gorgeous mail - what a lovely package

  3. Sometimes it doesn't hurt to be a pioneer woman for a while.
    It sure helps us appreciate all the beni's we have!

  4. Your yarn is very pretty and I like your stitch markers.

  5. Being a pioneer woman for a day gives you a chance to focus on something different...but also makes us glad we're not pioneer women all the time! Your yarn colours are so sweet, and the stitch markers do look like a charm bracelet! Have a lovely weekend, Debbie.

  7. It really is amazing how much time can be gobbled up as we sit gazing at this computer screen...I have loved reading all of these lovely quilty, crafty blogs, but heavens, have I ever broadened my hips at the same time. LOL I love your markers! Where did you find them? I may have to have some too. :)

  8. I sometimes like it when the power goes out. I get lots of things done like you spoke about . . .and it reminds me to slow down!
