all clear.

That wasn’t so bad.

We’d stocked up on candles, filled pots with water, harvested what we could from the garden, prepared projects and even baked a hurricane cake, but in the end, Irene caused us little trouble aside from a few downed tree limbs and a day spent inside. Christopher caught up on the Economist and made us spicy beans for lunch. I made bread and read and cut fabric pieces for a quilt (my first!).

By late afternoon, under blue(ish) sky, we walked down to see the swollen river and then picnicked outside until dusk.

At night, we lit candles just for the fun of it.
