washing dishes in the dark

Posted by adiamondinsunlight on April 13, 2008

Its nearly 8:30 pm, and I have just come from a stint of dish washing – in the dark.

The dish washing was to kill time while I waited for the water in my teakettle to boil, and the dark was … oh, to deal with my cranky fusebox.

Most days I can run one air conditioning/heater, the refrigerator, a few lights and make tea. But some days – for no apparent reason – I can’t.

As I learned this afternoon, today is one of those days.

On the other hand, today the power stayed on ALL DAY. Woo hoo woo hoo!

    We learn to be thankful for small things. I think of October in Kuwait, when it gets below 100°F for the first time, and we feel a real celebration for the cool spell!

  2. Oooh yes – I’m thankful for the beautiful breeze blowing through my office window. Earlier this week it was much stickier – a definite taste of summer humidity!
