...oh,yeah,on the darkside oh yeah (hand clapping) ...slipped to the dark side... (eddie and the cruisers moment).
Thursday night-blackout-rummage for torch and candles. Luckily have just finished cooking a big pot of stew- and it's still piping hot. Have a shower by candlelight-flattering,no doubt. Sit at the table -not on the lounge-and enjoy the nourishing food and the candlelight. Felt like a middle aged laura ingalls or, better still,jane eyre. Time slowed down and all was quiet and peaceful. It was quite delightful,actually. What to do after dinner?-get the harmonica out and play some rather woeful versions of josie by donovan,the bit from apple scruffs by george harrison,blowing in the wind, the skye boat song and others that I can't remember now.Oh some neil young as well,for good measure.Haha,it was fun. Would have moved on to piano by candlelight but the power came back on-dash it-and "life" resumed .It was a great time while it lasted. Get up in the morning and find that my fridge is DEAD due to a power surge,and everything in the freezer section is defrosted. Brilliant .Friday go spend $1000 on a new refrigerator .In all the harmonica excitement forgot to unplug my poor fridge R.I.P Mr Sharp Frost Free 1993-2006. Worst of it is that i have complained about my fridge,how it was too small and i couldn't fit the carrots in etc-well i didn't know how much i loved it until it died!!! A bit like when my ex-husband's german shepherd played on the road one day .Sob sob.Moments like these you wish the crying face in the toolbar thing up there would work properly :'( .
Mood - lamenting the loss of my fridge
Music - tender years-e & the c soundtrack
How romantic - candle light - its great for the soft focus affect. Congrats on the new fridge, it's funny the things we get excited about as we mature. But forget the celery more importantly does it have a wine compartment
