the wind blew so hard the dog would not go outside on his own.
we both knew it was just a matter of time before we lost power
so we were not surprised when it happened. he built a fire
and i dug the candles out.... it was nice for a few hours,
me reading as he worked Sudoko puzzles, the dog all cozy
between us. i was happy however, when the power kicked back on,
somehow it was more fun when the kids were little.
