The Little Things

Papa is away this week on a business trip. We’ve missed him very much, it just doesn’t seem the same without him coming home everyday. We sit here today, (Wednesday) knowing that we have a terrible windstorm moving our way. The sustained winds on the coast could reach as high as 50 to 60 mph. Mama is feeling uneasy as she does not like to hear about wind storms coming our way.

Currently the winds are not that strong, but they are whistling around the house and pretty gusty. Mama knows though that these winds can change anytime to sound like a freight train. She has kept my mind off all the banging and different sounds that the wind is making by reading a lot of books to me, and playing a lot of games. I have toys all over the living room but mama says it is ok, we will clean them up before bed tonight.

Mama did take me fishing today! It was a lot of fun!

100_2817 100_2818 I caught one! I was so proud of myself. See it is a big one!

100_2819 100_2820 The lights have been flickering, the last 5 minutes so Mama has the back up lights ready to go, flashlights, and oil lamps. She also has the sleeping bags just in case we spend the night in the dark. She says we will camp in the living room if we need to. I am trying to talk her into building a tent for the night. Maybe she will do it even if we don’t lose our lights, now that would be fun!

Anyway, stay tuned and we will let you know how we make it through the storm! I have enjoyed being home with just Mama as she has let me have a lot of fun and hasn’t worried about all my toys all over the place, but I do miss my Papa! Hurry home Papa!

  1. Our family in Oregon got hit by high winds, and heavy rains yesterday, but their storm moved on quickly - We'll be in prayer for you today :)

  2. Sounds like you & Mama are having a lot of fun! Even though there is a storm and Papa's not home. A tent in the living room is always a good time!! :-)

  3. My kids love when it's bad weather because we huddle down and watch lots of movies and cuddle together. Great excuse to cuddle.
