Earth Hour-What are your Top 10 Things to do in the dark?

Earth Hour - Logo

At 8:30 pm on Saturday, March 26, 2011, lights will be switched off all around the world for Earth Hour.  This movement will save a ton of energy. According to BC Hydro's Team Power Smart, "If British Columbians implemented the same conservation measure (as they did in 2010) for just one hour every evening, the combined savings would be enough to power close to 2,200 homes for an entire year."  WOW!!!

What are your top 10 things to do in the dark?

Below is a list of my top 10:

1.  Sit by the fire with hubby
2.  Sip some wine or bubbly by the fire with hubby
3.  Snuggle with hubby
4.  Have a candlelit dinner
5.  Watch the stars
6.  Watch a movie
7.  Build a fire and make some 'smores or roast some marshmallows
8.  Go for a walk in the dark
9.  Have a candle lit bath
10.  Go to bed early

Do you have something planned for Earth Hour?

There's things I have been waiting for but nothing has come about.  As time goes by, I noticed that my patience is lacking these days.  Basically I feel that I don't have the patience I did a few years back.  Mind you, when I was a teenager I had no patience for anything but I learned as I got older. But when I hit my mid went out the door!

I find that I don't have patience with coworkers, family, friends and I guess even strangers. When I am at a store I don't have any patience with the clerks.  I will walk out if no one acknowledges my presence ( I learned from working retail, you have to acknowledge every customer that walks in the door) and I will also walk out if it takes a long time to be served!  When I want something done I want it done now!  I can't wait.  (Actually my husband is like that with renos around the house.) With me it's the everyday things.  I don't have the patience for anything!!!

Anyhow... as part of my 101 in 1001 days, being more patient is one of the items I want to accomplish.  I have to take it as it comes. I have to learn to relax more. I think if I am more easy going and laid back, patience will come.  And when it does I think I will be prepared.


I totally agree with the above quote!  Do you have any patience?

Patiently yours,

I'm Free

A beautiful, elegant, kind & wonderful aunt, mother, grandmother & wife passed away suddenly on February 22, 2011. She will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her. Rest in Peace Tita Rosie.

Her daughters read the following poem at her funeral:

I'm Free

Don't grieve for me; for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call,
I turned by back and left it all.
I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love,
to work or play.
Tasks were left undone must stay that way.
I found peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savoured much:
good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief
don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me.
God wanted me now, He set me free.
