I’m not sure if it’s made the national news, but a freak snowstorm has left hundreds of thousands of people in my part of the country without power. I drew this candle during the power outage for today’s daily doodle.

We lost power in my town for two days. It finally came back on last night. It’s amazing how two days can seem like an eternity without power, but I have to admit I like the calming effect and atmosphere of candle light. I hadn’t planned on taking time away from the blog. The power outage forced the break, but I learned it’s OK to take a day here and there to replenish. I think I was afraid that if I took a day out from blogging, I would break my habit of regular posting. And it’s a habit and a challenge that I want to keep.
