This weekend we gained a delightful hour of sleep. Of course, it just wouldn't be normal if I didn't also stay up an extra hour later to completely rob myself of that delightful hour. ::sigh::
And so now the dark nights of fall and winter are coming even earlier, sending my playing children scurrying for home before I've even put pots to the fire and whisked up their dinner.
I would love for my home to be a warm and light refuge from the dark night. And the adorable Lucy from Attic 24 has given me a delightful idea. That's her picture up above. Aren't the votives charming and inviting? She says, "My evening ritual of lighting the candles . . ."
What a lovely evening ritual. How warming for my family to pop their heads in the door and see candlelight glowing here and there around the house.
I think today I'll scrounge around and see if I can find some little votives for my own evening ritual . . . little pieces of warmth and light throughout the house to chase away the darkness.
