1 Last week I suffered some serious cold/sinus achy stuff that pretty much left me non functioning for the latter part of the week. I even missed a blogger meet-up which I'm pretty bummed about, but there's always next time!
2 I love when Happy's hair grows in and she starts to look like a furry bear!
3 So I'm sure that everyone knows that Sandy came and went. I did a lot of prepping, shopping, worrying and after all of that - I needed some Oktoberfest.
4 Because there was a possibility of power outage, I used up some chicken and cooked a whole lot. This was my husband's request.
5 I made some arroz caldo/rice porridge/congee. Something my mom always made when the weather was bad or when someone was sick. This is my ultimate comfort food.
6 Before the storm came, I went to my Mom's and visited her and the doggies. This pup or should I say old man is the oldest of all of them but still very handsome.
7 The naughtiest of the three of course didn't want to look at the camera.
8 The youngest of course and the cutie stood on his hind legs until he got some attention.
9 The day after the storm breakfast called for homemade multi grain waffles with vanilla and cinnamon.
Last but not least.. a picture the day after Sandy from my window. The clouds looked ominous but the sun was trying to peek through. I am thankful that my family and I made it through without any power outages or damage from fallen trees or high wind gusts. Thanks to those who asked how things were and sent positive thoughts through Instagram and Twitter. We were very lucky compared to others, and my thoughts go to those who were unable to stay in their homes, who lost their property due to flood or fires in Connecticut and the other surrounding states who were affected by the hurricane. Some of us can go back to "normal" tomorrow but then there are those who will take a long time to regain their "normal".
