My fruit is growing again..........

When the load sharing initiative (AKA black-outs!) started I lost all my fruit. I would rant and rave about the big wigs at Eskom getting hugely inflated salaries whilst we sat in the dark! WizzKid even came up with a derogatory sentence making mention of these Eskom heavy weights. Just as we have the saying "You son of a gun or b-tch." He made up...... "You son of an Eskom CEO!" Much more of an insult in my eyes!!!!

Well........ my TOOT for today is that I'm growing fruit again, and I am using these times to my advantage. In the morning it forces me to have a quiet time with the Lord instead of being attached to the computer and in the evenings we sit around a candle lit table and play cards or 30 seconds. We're having good family time!

So I say.....

Bring it on Eskom.We're not afraid of the dark!!!

Sounds like you are making the best out of unfair situation! Some of my favorite times have been in the dark (ha ha- I just realized how that sounded!!!) Seriously, when the power goes out where I live, it is pitch black everywhere, and we have had some great family time making shadow puppets with flashlights, candles, etc, all cozy and warm beside our wood stove.

You and your family have such great attitudes that you'll always make the best of any bad situation. We live in an old neighborhood and our power used to go out everytime we had the slightest storm. It could be fun except on hot summer nights when we had to sleep without an airconditioner!

A friend asked how often the electricity go offs. On Mon,Wed and Fri we have no power from 8-10:30 am. On Tues,Thurs and Sat it goes off from 6-8:30 pm! The latter is a rather inconvenient time!!!!
