It's dark here...

Well, as much fun as it it so conduct your evening activities by candle light, I must confess this power outage is getting old. We have been down for over a day now and I'll admit that I miss my heater more than my lights or washing machine.

Thank goodness for Panera bread just down the street. They've got a nice hot soup, a good fast free WiFi connection for us bloggers, and heating!

It looks like more rain for the rest of the weekend, so we will lay low and potentially stash a couple of frozen chickens in a friend's freezer.

Think a happy thought for PG&E to get their act together! I'll be back when they turn the lights on.

Oh, and yes, you all did guess it right - that is Kaffe Fassett from my last post. My parents ran into him in Big Sur, California at Nepenthe. It's a restaurant owned by his family and he is staying there for a while.

He was super cool to my mom and even gave her a little tutorial on how to make these paper fans (he was selling in the gift shop. ) oops - EDIT/CORRECTION HERE....fans were on display only, not for sale you shop-a-holics, sorry!

Hows this for co-indicence - just after finding your blog I am listening to back episodes of Annie Smith's podcast and there you are in the voice! Nice to hear you. Hope you warm up soon.

Slight correction: fans were display only from the England museum and they're made of Kaffe Fassett fabric.

Oh, I love that place... and he's part of that family? Wow, very interesting, and fitting. Nepenthe always emits creative vibes for me. I hope you aren't living in *rustic* charm for too much longer... let us know if we should send provisions!

Oh I'm so sorry that you don't have power! I am glad that it's stopped raining though! :)
