When you live in Maine…

.

A few more chuckles from our recent power outage during the storm.

When you live in Maine, you own lobster cooking pots.

And when the power is out for a day and a half due to a monster winter storm, you use your fireplace for heat. This burns copious amounts of wood, which results in copious amounts of ash. And when you can’t find your old ash bucket?

You improvise.

With a lobster pot.

Which worked remarkably well.

Though I probably should have dug a little deeper in the closet for the larger one.

And speaking of improvising…

The wire mesh curtain that slides across our fireplace is a wonderful thing. It keeps sparks and small pieces of wood from jumping out and burning down our house. In other words, it’s important.

Ours has always been temperamental and must be slid with care, something my husband naturally ignored. He tugged and pulled and ripped all day which resulted in half of the metal strip that holds the curtain in place to come crashing down.

His solution?

I think you know me well enough to realize this will not be tolerated for long.

🤣
