Powerless Wednesday

This day started pretty crazy...

Wake up and went for a 1/2 hour walk with my hubby, but before we left he asked me if left the coffee brewing, I said no but that I will make it as soon as we got back (of course not realizing I jinxed it)... By the time we got back to the house the power was off.

No worries, we have a gas grill so we were able to make some coffee as well as breakfast.

Got a nice cold shower, left to work but as always I pick up a fellow coworker who's husband works at the power company, well as soon as she got in the car, she informed that the power was off on the ENTIRE island!!! Crazy, uh?

Well, to make the long story very short, power didn't return until almost 1 o'clock, but finally now we are back to business!

In unrelated news... In case you ever wonder how I keep the garlic in my kitchen?

Perhaps you've imagine that I have a special little handmade basket to keep them? Well, I am glad you mention it because as of yesterday, I do!

For a while I just kept the garlic in a little star bowl that I have but lately I feel a little basket would be fab, so yesterday I found an easy, fast pattern and in less than 2 hours, I made my own little basket.

Here is my master piece.


Pretty nice, eh? I just love it when I can just find a nice, easy and fast pattern that I can start and finish in one sitting.

Have a great day!!!

Maybe the power walk caused the power outage? Sucking energy from the environment.
