You Gave Me Wings

A poem about me written by my oldest daughter.  She gave this to me as part of my Yule present last year.

You gave me wings and helped me fly.
Your soul flutters through my veins,
am I yours and you are mine.

I suffer from frequent migraines.  Over the past six months though, it's become worse.  One to two a week and nothing was helping with the pain.  I did just recently get a prescription from my doctor that thank the Gods helps.

Lights, sounds, intensify the pain.  I feel like my head is going to literally explode.

Thinking back, 10 years ago

I was in bed sleeping.  I worked third shift.  My daughter was at preschool and my, not yet a year old, son was at his baby sitter's house.   The phone rang.

Baking, Baking, Baking

My daughter Loves to bake.  So now that we have power back, we've been on a baking spree.  In fact we may have gone a little crazy.
I've been planning to make zucchini bread out of our several very large zucchinis.  Ladybug took over and made us two very yummy zucchinis breads.  She also looked through our cook book

Thank you Irene

It's been a long five days.  We've had no power and no hot water.  What we do have though is wonderful family and friends.  My family has a well, so our amazing neighbors hooked us up to their city water.  In turn we hooked their fridge up to our generator.  I have had so many offers from friends who have power, to come over.  It's times like these that make you really cherish the people in your life.
