candle light breakfast

Monday, January 31, 2011

We had a candle light breakfast this morning...
No we were not trying to be romantic...
the electricity went off at 8:30
It didn't come back on for 2 hours

No computer, no blog, no TV
No toast, and no Wii exercise
(we did have coffee because I made it earlier)

Did that stop me???
In the past it would have just sat there
Like a big old lump or gone back to bed
Not this time

This time I ate my bran flakes with my coffee
Then I got moving
I did my weight exercises
I also did 20 min stretching

After that I started putting my bookshelves together
Now that was hard to do
We didn't have much light (raining outside)
Was using 3 candles and 2 flash lights

You would have gotten a big laugh at me
but I got one completed
The second one was almost done when...
the lights came back on

So got some more work done
Moved some furniture around
Cooked enough meat for 6 meals
(I like to cook in bulk when I can)
emoticon emoticon

Got on my Wii did 50 min walking exercise
rested for an hour then went at it again
I feel great and
I got a lot accomplished
Despite starting off with no electricity

    good use of your time! Ours usually goes out when it really dark, then I keep moving to keep warm because even the wood burner in the basement needs the electric fan!

    sounds like a great time even though you had no power. Nice job staying on track. I don't know if I would've done all of that.
