There are times when mouse is certainly required to blog and she's not a clue what to say.
- The family is feeling much better and Daddy's returned to sleeping with mouse without incident.

It was horribly windy here last couple days, complete with power outages and debris hitting the house. Early in the morning Sunday Daddy who sleeps through anything woke rather suddenly when something hard hit the side of our home. Immediately he covered mouse with his body in an effort to protect her. The painting behind our bed fell. The nail just knocked from the wall, causing the painting to fall, hitting the headboard before landing on his back.
Daddy got dressed and went outside to survey the damage (despite mouse trying to ask him to wait until later). A tree limb fell or was propelled toward out house leaving behind a broken fence and a rather large divot.
This is why mouse hates trees, because quite frankly they're out to get her.
Despite the windy conditions he repaired the fence all before breakfast -- he won't have large animals wandering into our backyard or our dogs wandering/chasing things out of it. Since the tree technically is on our property he cut it down, so now there will not be a repeat performance and chopped up what left for firewood (well once it dries). The tree has been an issue for sometime.
Still, for mouse there was something wildly romantic about it all. Demonstrating his base desire to keep mouse safe and to ensure the safety of our family. The caveman side of Omega -- that's always there but we don't see very often.
It was all kinda amusing. Once the tree was down, we all went out to help gather small branches and somewhat assisted Daddy with repairing the fence. It was a man-day. It was also the perfect day for making a stew, something that needs to be slow cooked for several hours.
Monday we woke without power (not a big deal since we brought our phones with us) the house was freezing though and oddly enough the air was still.
Before Daddy left for work, smelling wonderful mouse might add, the power was restored and the house was heating up.
No time really to blog...There were errands to run, things to do and all the usual Monday madness.
