We participated in the Earth Hour last night. I had all the applicances turned off except the fridge and light the house with Bee Wax candle.
I was in the mid of cooking dinner and lighting up the candles when hubby stepped into the house after work. Didn’t want to shower in the dark, he immediatly went to have a shower while I finished up the cooking.
Real candle light dinner! But not a 3-course dinner. We spent the whole hour eating and chatting. It was really nice in fact. We haven’t done it for some time. It’s always a 5 minutes dinner together and either of us doing the dishes.
The whole Earth Hour in fact reminded us what happened when we first shifted into the present house. We survived on candlelight for full 3 days as the electric company stuffed up the connection. Lucky we had plenty of candles to light up the house and gas stove to boil water for shower. Not possible to shower using cold water in the mid of winter right?
At the end of Earth Hour, we only switched whats necessary and keep to the minimum. It didn’t last long before the whole house went into total darkness again.
