my eyelids are very heavy

i'm home!

and i'm tired. i had a great weekend, but i'm very tired.

i was in the process of formulating what i wanted to write about (but not really getting very far), when our power went off due to a large thunderstorm rumbling through. it was only out for a half hour or so, but long enough for my eyelids to grow even heavier and my brain to tell me it's time for my head to rest on a comfy pillow.

i will say, though, that i enjoyed the time when the power was off. the lit candles bathed the room with a warm, comfortable glow. the fact that the tv was dead and we couldn't use our computers meant that all my family could do was sit and talk to each other. i was able to share things about my weekend and they were able to share theirs with me. it was very nice. maybe i should simulate a blackout on some kind of regular basis.

anyways, i need to get to bed. i will write about my weekend tomorrow and hopefully include some pictures of God's country here in colorado.

good night.

I love blackouts here in the mts., but in FL it was even more humid bcz there was no a/c.

Glad you had a special time with your family, can't wait to hear about your weekend.

God Bless,
Amber

PS~ I seem to sleep more sound when it rains, I love the feeling, can't explain it, but I love it.

I love a good storm. Not severe but a lot of thunder and lightning!

I also love times like that when there are no other interruptions.

Looking forward to hearing about your trip.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the rains we have been getting. The lightening and thunder has been great. We haven't gotten as much in CaƱon City as others have.

Did I ever know where in Colorado you are?? I can't remember.
