Well the power did eventually come back on but not until close to 8.
Instead of doing things inside I went outside and did things around the yard. I mowed the my backyard which is not very big and did not take very much time. I also got up my RoundUp and sprayed some weeds. I then went to the front yard and did the same thing there. While I was mowing Charlie and Linus staked out a place to watch me do my work. Here are a couple of pictures of the guys.
