Eric has been teasing me lately about being solar powered. When the sun sets, I shut down. On cloudy days I have a harder time getting things done. Often, I find myself thinking, “Good grief, it’s only 6:15. I can’t go to bed yet.”
Yesterday was bright and sunny, and I felt pretty good. I wasn’t home much to get things done, but I did things for other people that I hadn’t planned on earlier in the week. I worked last night and I wasn’t exhausted when I got home about 9:30. Today has been cloudy with bursts of snow, and I’ve managed to go to church, wash a load of laundry, and put another load away.
There might be something to his theory. Now if I could replace my batteries so I could store the sunlight, I’d be in great shape.
