My daughter and I always do something. My husband is usually in bed. The one year we went to the local Timmy's and drank hot chocolate while watching the town turn to darkness. Then we went thru the neighbourhood to see who was and wasn't participating. I wish it was warmer. I remember the year of the summer blackout around 2003?? It happened just before dinner. All my neighbours and myself met on my back porch. We pooled our food and had a huge BBQ. Being the funky person I am I have old lanterns and candles. We lit the whole porch up with candle light and opened some wine. We talked and laughed and rocked our wee babies. It was sooooooo quiet and peaceful. It goes to show that when forced to slow down or in this case STOP. You really do connect on a deeper level with the ones close to you because there is nothing else to do....no where to be.....and nothing distracting you. Simply beautiful!!



This year we hope to have a fire in the back yard but it is suppose to get very chilly tonight. Maybe cuddling up with that someone special by the hue of candle light is just what is in order!!
