A slight case of cabin fever, stuck inside in the dry (but electricity-less) house was easily treated with a pancake party downstairs and by helping Dad fix some new freecycled furniture. He really wanted to help, and, of course every job is much easier with his assistance.
Tropical cyclones can't keep me from Lifeline Bookfest's sale day! I spent a couple of hours (JUST ME!) cruising the trestle tables, with far more success than my previous visit!

We spent a couple of nights at the coast, whoops! It was pretty stormy but we enjoyed playing, reading, and snacking on the balcony.
