Everything has an extra, magical dimension - it's toe numbingly cold but so beautiful.

Shades of Attraction

Aqua, turquoise, mint, pale green, pale blue - shades I love and am attracted to like a magnet.
Cheering, calming and soothing and the perfect partner to pink.......and red.........and.........  :)

Afternoon relaxation

With a John Seymour book, coffee and cake plus a few furbies for company. A few moments stolen from the day to just relax.

Feel the warmth

Lots of garden branches and clippings were too big for the recycle collection and as it was not too long  since Guy Fawkes Night we didn't feel too bad for having a burn up. It was a cold evening but the heat from the fire plus the activity of keeping it topped up with wood kept us warm and toasty.
We drew in close and Dante enjoyed every minute, dashing around the garden, sniffing here and stealing the odd branch there.  We had hot dogs, chicken, mugs of tea and glasses of damson gin.
Once indoors again the scent of woodsmoke lingered on our clothes and we felt tired but pleased with a job well done.

Something magical happens when candles are lit.  A room instantly becomes more intimate, the light source concentrated within a limited area, plunging corners into secret darkness.
Candlelight encourages inactivity, a moment just to dream, unfocus tired eyes and rest.
Serenity beckons, the mind becomes quiet, the body stilled into relaxation.
Feel the calmness taking over, the breathing steadied, jumbled thoughts banished.
I love candlelight.
