It's amazing the number of things that cannot be accomplished when there is a blackout, as was the case here in Bronte from about 11AM to 5PM yesterday.

The things I had to put off until today:

Grocery Shopping
Scrapbooking (basement studio, no lights!)
Weed Wacking

The things I did manage to accomplish:

Re-read "The Last Lecture"
Cuddled with Caden on the couch
Met and chatted with Dylan's mum, Laurie
Wrote a few lists in the ever-present journal

All in all, I think I could do with a few more blackouts in my life!

YAY!! I'm so glad you made good use of your blackout.

When our power went out last month, we spent two days outside with our neighbors - cooking out, playing games and swimming. It was GREAT!!

Wow! Great way to find something positive about a not-so-great moment (or day in this case). I think we could all use a Blackout once in a while. Would be good for us. =]
