it is starting to feel like winter again...we lost power late this afternoon, and had to light up candles for the evening. but my daughter and i tried to make it fun. we made a fire in the fireplace and stirred up some bloody marys, and she had her portable dvd player all charged up, so we pulled out the movie 'flatliners' and watched it. hadn't watched it in a long time...it is a pretty good movie, and a little spookier in the dark with candles flickering! one by one the candles started burning out, and there were only one or two still lit, and i got up to replace some of them when tah-dah! lights! i was glad it didn't stay out too long...didn't feel like tossing out everything in the refrigerator tomorrow!

We only blinked as well. A generator would be good if we lose power when it's as cold as it was last year! It got too darn chilly in the house to want to get out of bed!

Flatliners would be a good, scary, lights-out kind of movie! Great idea.

amanda ~ it really was kinda fun...we were all cozy.

tess ~ hubby wants to get a generator...i kinda like the candles and it's a little bit of fun when it goes out for a little while, but after a whole day it gets old. and like last year, COLD!

tara ~ yeah, like i was saying, when it gets cold or lights out for extended time, generator really does sound like a good idea! but you know, one of our neighbors has one, and man, it is really LOUD!

I just watched that same movie. I like watching spooky movies each weekend in October. I like a good scare... when I know it's just a movie, that is!
