little_mermee's Journal, 14 September 2021

Good morning, friends! I’m still super busy with work and the kids, so I haven’t had much time to log into FS, but I miss interacting with all of you. 💖 We randomly lost power, gas, and water last night at 5pm until early this morning and it was a little chaotic. I’m amazed how people used to raise small kids without the help of electricity, tv, wifi, a stove, indoor plumbing, etc. The twinkies were terrified of the dark and really upset that their iPad wasn’t working.

I woke up feeling so privileged once power and water were restored, so I’m feeling extra gratitude for all our modern conveniences on this beautiful day.

At the advice of Erq, I got these little egg molds and wanted to try them out today. I over cooked the eggies a little bit, but they were still delish. It always amazes me how much more I get out of my breakfast when I include eggs. This was only 287 cals and 27g protein, but was really filling. I also had a small piece of sourdough that didn’t fit on my plate.

Work is picking up again, so I’m off to go push pixels around. Sending everyone love and peace! Hope to check in with my homies later today. 💖

Glad your power was restored. That's a long time to be without power! Your breakfast looks delicious. 😋

Looks delicious! Are those giant blackberries? We've had some wild ones walking in the parks here, but most of them were quite tart. We think they get sweeter/milder the larger they are though - so I imagine yours were lovely and sweet then. Glad your power outage didn't last to long. At one stage we had them quite regularly in South Africa so I know what it's like to be thrown out of balance like that. Hope your busy week goes smoothly! 💕

Invest in a small generator— it is a 12 volt car battery encased in a protective covering. It will run a refrigerator, a lamp, charge your phone , for varying different times. Store it in the bottom of your closet. And, flashlights. This won’t be the last time this happens. Buy it at Home Depot, auto parts stores, etc. this is a good time in history to consider whatever preparedness you can

Kenna, how do you use a generator in an apartment building? Are they battery operated? Ours is gas powered.

Erq1— hopefully I mentioned in the comment that it is actually a12 volt car battery encased in a protective shell. They are actually meant for jumping car batteries. I carry one with me all the time and have another in the garage. Earthquake country here and we already know we have to take care of ourselves for probably 3 weeks. I am as ready as I can be.

Yea, generators was probably the wrong word. Sorry for the confussion

You cannot use a gas powered generator indoors, it's fumes can be deadly. Glad your power came back on soon. Super cute eggs. 🌞

Duh, you did Kenna. Thanks. I didn't read your message carefully. Smart idea for city folks❣️

Mermee, not worried about you, just hope you’re enjoying your life and all is well.💕💪 Turn on the water once and nothing came out in the middle of night. Checked all the pipes in the dark and all was well. SO SCARY!!! Can be without electricity, and gas, but no water - what do you do? No showers, no flushing, it is the worse of worse nightmares. Mine came back on in a couple hours, but now I feel so very blessed to have that water coming out of the facet each and every time I turn it on. Glad everything came back up for you! 🌸🌼🌺
