Today didn’t start as planned. Buddy woke me up around six or seven barking at a cat. I never did get back to sleep despite the fact that I finally crashed at three this morning. A couple hours later, as I contemplated letting the dogs outside and going back to sleep, I heard a loud popping sound and my house went silent. Mind you, I sleep with a high velocity fan going in my room to muffle the outside noises. *Sigh* A transformer had popped.
I don’t know how transformers work, but all of the people on my block had electricity. However, the houses behind me didn’t have electricity.
Needless to say, I was upset. I reported the power outage and waited for the electricity to come back on. It was too hot and humid to stay outside, but with no circulating air the house was even worse. Even the rats were feeling it as they were frequently visiting the water bottle.
I waited two hours and realized that they weren’t coming anytime soon (probably coming from the City). It was nicer in the backyard with a little bit of breeze, plus the patio is shady all day so I put the dogs outside and went to Hobby Lobby a bit earlier than I anticipated.
As soon as I walked into Hobby Lobby, my day turned around and I left feeling a whole lot better than I went in. Here is what I bought.
Until next time, keep in mind that just because your day doesn’t start well doesn’t mean it won’t end well.
P.S. By the time I got back from my shopping trip, the electricity was back on.
