Hello Dear Reader,
The nights are drawing in, but I really don’t mind. I love the passing seasons and I like the dark cosiness of this time of year. I have noticed though that I have to put the lights on now by six in the evening. I’m really aware of the extra energy costs at this time of year. I have a solar battery charger and a portable battery lamp that takes those batteries that I’ve charged for free. I have wall low energy lamps but need better light to mark school books by. Here’s my low energy and sustainable experiment in lighting and I can get two classes of books on one charge. I then feel compelled to go to bed…………………..the light has run out. It’s a way of using the sun and giving up on the day when the sun’s energy has gone.
My camera memory card and my netbook are not talking to each other tonight so I’ve taken the photo of me being lit by a solar charge with my webcam! As you can see, it’s blinding and quite bright enough to read or mark books by. Well, I’m quite cosy for the night, with washing drying by the fire and the log burner heating the house. As I said, I don’t mind the dark and I enjoy the changing seasons.
Love Froogs xxx
