This year for Earth Hour we spent the day in our favourite little town of Warkworth; eating at a wonderful cafe for lunch then over to the coffee shop for dessert. Of course I can’t be in Warkworth without heading into my favourite yarn shop and I can’t go into my favourite yarn shop without purchasing some new yarns. 🙂
Lianne, Jayla and I walked a little hiking trail that follows the river and we even dipped our toes into the cool running water. Yikes. It was so cold, but so refreshing.
For supper we had sandwiches. I wanted to make the most of Earth Hour Day and use as little power as possible for the entire day, not just for one hour.
I love spending the evening in candlelight, amusing ourselves with simple games and connecting with one another. The girls put on a shadow puppet play for me and then we talked and talked and cuddled on the couch, just watching the fire in the woodstove. After the hour was over, the girls headed off to bed and I remained alone on the couch watching the fire from the woodstove and the flames from the candles. Basking in the warm glow of it all. Loving the simplicity of it. Wondering….how can I bring this into my life more often?
And what did you do for Earth Hour?
