Among the leaves so green
Oh here we come a hunkerin’
So fair to be seen…
Oh no wait…that’s wassailing, not hunkerin'. Though I do wonder, aren't the green leaves usually off the trees by wassailing time? At any rate, to quote The Blogess (whose blog I LOVE):
Hi. I’m alive. I know, half of you are all “THANK GOD! I’VE BEEN SO WORRIED!” and the other half are all ”Big whoop, so am I” and the other half are like “this girl can’t do math”In addition to loving that blog, I also love electricity (which we got back last night).
I LOVE electricity!!!!! LOVE IT!!!! Love it, love it, love it! I especially love being able to heat food.
I hope to love running water again sometime soon. In the meantime at least we figured out that we can use the neighborhood pool water for flushing the toilet.
We still have some bottled water though. Because, y’know, they advised us to buy bottled water. They advised us to tank up on gas.
But if there was any one thing they advised us to do over and over and over (and over and over and over), it was hunker.
How exactly does one “hunker”, you might ask? We weren’t really sure ourselves, but by Saturday afternoon we got pretty dang good at it.
I have a bunch of pictures of us hunkerin'. But at the moment I'm missing the little thingy-me-bobber that makes the pictures load into the computer.
Of course I have the requisite pictures of damage and destruction. Thankfully I took MOST of those pictures outside the confines of home.
I hope to be reunited with the pictures AND running water sometime soon. And I'll post the hunkerin' pictures as soon as I can.
In the meantime...
Love and Joy come to you
And to you your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy new year
And God send you a happy new year
At least a happy Jewish new year (later this month), and one free from hunkerin’.
