taking the chill off

November 2, 2010

The morning temperature in the kitchen jumps when I light candles.  So does my delight.

    So lovely!

    I’ll never forget when friends from Denmark came to visit. They lit candles for breakfast in the winter. “We need the light where we live,” they told me. Seattle too, I think.

    As soon as I get fully unpacked, I’m putting candles on the table.

    Thank you, Tea! I highly recommend the candles – they make all the difference for me. This is the first year in many that I am not getting up at 6 am for the school year – they helped even more then.

    My sister is at the front end of her second year living in Sweden, doing research at a university. She lives north of the Arctic circle, and reports that it is already “hella dark” there. She has lots of candles, too.

    I hope you enjoy settling into and creating your new home.

    Sarah Jean – thank you! I have a lot of fun with the banners. Some pictures are better as a slice for the banner than they are as they were fully composed. I think this is one of those.

    Yes, Kim – the candles make it something to enjoy and celebrate (and keep me from grumping).
