taking the chill off

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.
