Earth Hour 2015




Yesterday was Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is a world wide event in which people show that they care about our planet by turning out their lights for one hour.  Even Big Ben in London turned out the lights this year.

As well as turning off our lights, we don't use anything that uses electricity for the hour.

So from 8-30pm til 9-30pm we turned out all our lights, computer, everything. and didn't use anything electrical.  It's a good excuse to get the candles out.

We grabbed our torch, candles, some juice and sat outside at the table under the large tree in our front yard and were able to see a few stars as it was quite cloudy.  It had been raining during the day.


Caught in the torchlight.


We had fun outside playing spotlight with the cats, exploring around the house, front yard and backyard with the torch and Salem was trying to creep up on me but he failed every time.

The cats thought it was great that we were outside with them.


Having scary fun with the candles.


It looked like we were the only ones in our neighborhood celebrating Earth Hour which was a shame.
This has been a family tradition of ours for years.

We were having so much fun that we were outside for longer than the hour.  We could have stayed out longer but a certain young man needed a hot drink and it was off to bed.
