no, this isnt a recipe.

there was a rather large storm here last night, lots of rain and whatnot. no hail, but thunder, lightning, etc. nick and i were driving in this. we stopped at the store to pick up some basics, and came home. i started making dinner, washed a pot for pasta and everything, but the moment i turned the stove on, the power went out. we checked out breaker, it wasnt us. fuck. apparently some squirrel decided to make friends with something carrying rather high voltage. the storm didnt do it, the post storm squirrel did. so we hung out on the patio while it was still light out, and when it got dark we lit all the candles in the house. we actually had enough light to read by, had i wanted to. looking outside, i saw no other lights. apparently we were the only ones who lit some candles and hung out in the living room.

we had a few different scents, though it didnt get gross by any means. we had my lamp-style one that nick gave me (you know, the awesome ones with a handle, that hold a taper) and a foil-lined pie pan full of votives. we had a mason jar of gravel with some tapers in it, and a few other jar lids holding tea lights.

we turned all the power-strips off because we wanted to make sure we were prepared to deal with the fishtank filters when they came back on. if we werent going to be there with a glass of water to prime them, they'd burn out. we unplugged other things as well, like our water cooler. i like it, thank you, and didnt want to worry about some weird power surge when it came back up.

but anyhoo, that was my evening. i was once again nominated (with a day's notice) to come in insanely early, so i went home early today so i could sleep...because i already had several appointments set up in the evening. so right after i post this, i sleep. night night.
