It's been one of those days… you know the ones where you have a ton of things to do but you haven't gotten any of them done? Yep, that's me today.

I woke up this morning about an hour before I had to get my daughter up for school (Yay for late start Wednesday!). So I decided I'd try and get some work done before the whole house woke up. I made myself a cup of coffee and then proceeded to head down to the basement and my office. I sat in the chair and noticed that my computer was off.

It was odd because I never turn my computer off at night. I just save my work and shut down the programs that I am using – in case there is a power outage or the computer restarts to update or something – then I don't have to worry about losing anything. Whelp, there must've been a power outage and, me sleeping, didn't notice. I pushed the button to boot up the computer and the entire house went dark and my computer never started.

Power outage.

The whole neighborhood and even the elementary school where my daughter goes. The school sent out a text and said that they still had school because they had heat and running water. Fine by me but after taking her to school and coming back home, I learned that the power wouldn't be back on until 10am. 10am come around and the power is still not on. Ugh! Few hours went by and still no power so when it was time for the baby's nap I decided to take one too. I mean, why not, I literally have nothing to do without my computer so yeah.

The power didn't end up coming back on until after 3pm and now here I am sitting and writing an almost play-by-play of my super boring, unproductive day. Sorry for that. And now trying to play catch up on all the emails and work. Not that I'm too worried about it because I do make my own schedule.

However, now I am craving one of these gorgeous smoothies that you have been seeing in the photos. I haven't eaten very much today since I didn't have any power or a means to cook anything but now I'll take this smoothie. It is perfect and takes the two best flavors of fall and blends them together into this large glass of deliciousness.

  1. I know that unproductive day with no electricity all too well. Last summer our area had several surges of bad storms that left most of our town out of power for days! And to some that would be nothing, but for those of us who rely on electricity to power our work tools–like our laptop, our wireless hub, etc…–it’s torture!

    So glad your power came back on. On the bright side, however, at least you didn’t lose things on your computer when it went dark! That would’ve been a nightmare, right?

    I love this recipe you shared. It’s the best of both worlds for the fall–apple and pumpkin! I’m so glad you shared it with us on #SHINEbloghop! It was lovely to see there this week.

    Have a great weekend, Jennifer!
