Lights on or off and freezer ‘hattans

impatiensOnly one of MMCB2 was at coffee today. The other was in Flor-i-duh, one of the more mundane stops on her regular schedule of travels. Borneo? China? Australia? Boring old Europe? This week it’s Florida. That means it’s a family trip. Who (except yer fav-o-rite blahger) would want to spend time in Crazy Old Florida.

So, MMCB (the one who’s here this week) asked me an interesting question today. Was I a lights on or lights off person? It took me a split second to process the question but I replied pretty quickly with “lights off!” Yes. She was asking about my work situation. I have a huuuuuge cube that comes equipped with fluorescent light bars that I can turn on if I want to. I haven’t ever turned them on in the going on eight years I have worked there. I don’t even know if they work. There are overhead lights above my cube. Every once in a while they are not turned on when I arrive at work. I love those dark mornings but eventually someone comes in and turns on the lights and that’s okay too. Life goes on.

I love the ambient light of whatever is going on outside. I’m not sure how to describe this but I roll with the seasons here in the Great Lake State. I love when we have lots of sun in any season, although bright winter sunlight shows every last scrap of dust. I love when it’s dark (any season). I learned to love the dark by walking outside early in the morning in just about any weather. When my Mouse was a young child, carrying her outside for a dark walk helped settle her down for the night. [Love you Mouse.] When it *is* dark and I am in my house, I rely on my electronic device of choice (MacBook, iPhone, iPad) to provide light, plus a few little strings of LED lights.

Are you a lights on or lights off person? Love you either way.

P.S. There will always be a freezer ‘hattan for all of my friends and relatives who visit. Love y’all (again).

    Can you bring it to Washington? 😉 I’m a lights on person. I like things bright and cheery, especially since I’ve been by myself. With other people in the house, I can swing either way.
