Light's Out!!

Thursday I had to work, and the girl I was working with, Laura, and I were getting a little worried with the impending storm and all. We made it through dinner and we got the dining room all cleaned up and I started washing my dishes. About 6:15 it all went downhill -

The electricity went out. Let me say that the kitchen gets REALLY, really dark without any lights on at all! The generator quickly turned on, however, there is only so much stuff you can put on a generator. We had lights and water, but no dishwasher, air conditioning, or dishwasher! This ment a long night of silence, the complete eiry silence, doing thousands of dishes by hand, sweating up a storm in a really hot kitchen!

I was glad that I was working with Laura because we are both willing to help each other, so I brought all my dishes over to the cook's side and we washed cups, plates, bowls, trays, big brown buckets all by hand. We were just glad that I had washed the silverware already before the power went out!

It was one of those long nights, made even longer by the heat! I was just glad to get home and take a shower!

Cleo's Life!

This is her new favorite place to sleep! She gets herself wrapped up in the drapes as much as she can and then sleeps there for hours at a time. I think she likes it because it is soft and, if she is laying in just the right position, she can look out the front door at the same time! She is always finding new and exciting places to sleep! (it is her favorite past time, next to eating that is!)

Battle at Kruger

Mom found this video and we both thought that it is very interesting!

"This nature video show that a TEAM over 3 or 5 bullys can win anytime. When ever your hurting or need help in anyway friends and church members who are willing can help the lost in a world of hate and sin." This was one of the comments made about this video, which we also thought was cool.
