Monday night, the little snowstorm we had in Toronto knocked out all the power in our townhouse complex. For 15 minutes, we were plunged into darkness and silence.
It was a blissful 15 minutes.
Snow was gently falling, everything was shut down...finally some peace and quiet, so I could light a few candles and shoot a few photos of the snow outside. Sadly, the electricity came back on.
You know, it's almost a year since I cooked my Earth Hour dinner with some friends. I remember it so clearly - rabbit and wild mushrooms, served with a wonderfully rich Ribera del Duero. What was supposed to be an hour in darkness turned into 5. And I can't wait to do it again. This year, Earth Hour is schedule for March 27, at 8:30 pm. I think I want to prepare a sexy dinner.....asparagus and oysters?
