art every day month : day one : not quite powerless

It is true, we are one of the million sorry saps groping around in the dark with our teeth chattering, and it sucks. However, we could have had it much worse, and I will just leave it there. The plan is to forge ahead and stick with Art Every Day Month as much as I can. May art keep me sane and not so powerless. If my posts and look and sound stupid, blame part of it on my frozen mind and the other on the blogger mobile app. Can't return blog visits very easily but I am so grateful for yours -- every comment is a burst of heat and light in my day! xo

Oh Amy! I am thinking of you and your family especially the little ones. I love your indomitable spirit. Nothing can defeat that! Praying for power soon. My sister lives in NJ and she had power restored to her city but she had to report to work to relieve the nurses who stayed during the hurricane. I can only imagine. Praying for the best. Take care.

Aimee, Here's a hug for you all the way from Dallas.

So grateful you are okay.

The scenes we're seeing on the TV of the hurrican damage are horrific!

Hang in there!

Thinking of you and sending warm thoughts. The hurricane was a horrible, horrible storm. I am glad you and yours are safe.

And I love the sentiment on your art.

Hugs!

That's a great sentiment in the face of what's going on around you. I hope everything is restored to something passing for normal very soon. Sending you blessings from across the ocean in Ireland.

I'll bet you guys will look back on these days as a great adventure! Of course right now it just sucks! Hang in there!

Thinking of you Aimee! Having been through a few hurricanes (of various strengths, sizes, and destruction) in the last 10 years, I can say with authority that your attitude - gracious, spirited, and resourceful - will see you through until the lights are finally turned back on. Glad you're all safe and sound. I hope the Nutella is holding out. xoxo

Kelly Kono said...

So relieved to see your post, especially with all the devastation back east! Hope your art keeps you sane, and you get some illumination soon.

Michellem said...

Happy you are safe but this kind of situation is horrible. We lost our power for 8 days after a big ice storm a couple years back and those days seemed endless. Best wishes for your family!

So glad you guys are OK. Hang in there. Let us know if we need to send more chocolate (or wine...?). Sending warm wishes for power SOON!

Aimee! I am so sorry that heat and power have not been restored yet. :(. Thanks for being a ray of sunshine anyway - just hearing that you are okay, in your own Aimee way, brightens my day. ** Sending warm thoughts your way! **

So glad you're safe and sound but hopefully will also be warm again too. Glad you're able to play along with AEDM as best you can. Take good care xx

Unknown said...

Ugh. I feel for you. I've been through the devastation of a hurricane with little kids, and I have to say that even in hindsight it's not funny.

Leah Virsik said...

Hang in there Aimee and hope you and your family have power and warmth soon!
