This past Saturday Earth Hour was observed around the world, at various times across the globe. It is a global warming awareness campaign where people all over turned their lights off for one hour.
So from 8:30-9:30 this past Saturday I joined in and shut it all off. BF and Sophie were asleep from the sunny day on the water, so I was left to my devices. I gathered up a handful of candles and put them on the coffee table. Sophie was a bit curious at one point, only enough to lift her head in question. (if you look really closely, she’s on the right in the dark, below)
I relaxed, did some of the yoga stretching JMS suggested. It was so nice and peaceful; though my efforts were thwarted by Sophie who wanted to join in. She brought her “steak” nylabone to the party.
I think I could get used to doing the lights off thing on a more consistent basis. I won’t go so far as to unplug things that need electricity but I could do with turning off the lights and either enjoying the dark or tossing on some candles. They create a lovely ambiance and mine smelled quite beautiful. I think Earth Hour might visit my house once a month, minimum. As it turns out, the event was quite a success!
Did you do anything to join Earth Hour?

The ambient light of candles makes me want to relax, too. We meant to participate in Earth Hour, but forgot. An hour or so after the fact, I voiced my disappointment we forgot. Sweets said, well, technically we only have one light on (living room). Let’s not mention the TV was on, too. Sigh.
What a neat idea. I’ll have to take part the next time around!
