You know why I don't like the rain down here: Because then the power goes out. And we can't cook or use fans or have light or have out DVD player work for music, and you have to be home earlier. We didn't have power all day from when we woke up until 8:30 pm. So that's the longest I've been without electricity on the mission so far, made for an interesting day.
Playing with fire! I love how your hand looks in front of a candle flame.Then we decided that we better plan for the next day, and then all of a sudden the power came back. So as we were blowing out the candles and we were in darkness for a second, I saw a little green light on the floor, like the shining of a computer power light or something. So I thought that was really odd, and when I turned on the actual light, we saw that it was a little firefly. Problem was, it had somehow gotten into the house and wandered over to where I put my bug spray on, and so it was all twitching because of the DEET in the bug spray.
And the little firefly that I inadvertently killed with almost 100% DEET bug spray... sorry!So felt really bad about that and scooped it up and put it outside. Hopefully it's alright, poor little guy. I don't like it when nice insects die, like butterflies and ladybugs and fireflies. Flies and mosquitoes, those can definitely go away.
