Candlelit evening

I’m catching up on e-mails and came across an e-mail alert for the latest Mach Was challenge – this time it’s to do something with candles. Yeah, I know I won’t be able to think of anything original before the deadline tomorrow and then I looked around me in the living room and it’s filled with candles this evening. Our first real ‘candle evening’ this fall/winter as we watch soccer on TV (well, my daughter and Mr Esther mostly).

I took a few pictures that are not so clear but give an impression of how it is here right now: candles in front of the TV, candles on our coffee table and candles in front of our fireplace (with fire dying down)…

… a candle in our miniature Porta Nigra (replica of Roman gate in Trier)…


…a candle in front of a picture of my kids and the candle I burn most often that is in front of a picture of my dad…

So yeah, this is a little impression of a candlelit evening in the Esther household. I think this is the quickest Mach Was post I have ever written. πŸ˜‰

  1. Esther in all honesty I’m not a fan of candles because I fear fire more than anything else except maybe snakes. My sister had candles everywhere in her home.
    I do love just perking inside your pics at your ultra hip coffee table and the loving pic of your father and the replica gate of Trier!!
    You nailed it and short can be blissful too!

    1. You sound like my father-in-law, he too is always waiting for a fire to happen. πŸ™‚ That said, they do on occasion burn a candle in their home, on feastdays.
      Ultra hip coffee table! You should tell my daughter that, she’d laugh her head off. πŸ˜‰ Gotta tell ya, I’ve never been hip in my life but cool that you think that! πŸ™‚

        1. It’s sweet of you to say but wait until you meet me in person, you’ll see differently then. Not saying I’m not nice, I often understand that I am, but I will never be one of the cool and hip crowd. In all fairness, I never aim to be cool or hip anyway. πŸ˜‰

          1. Even better then because sometimes those on the in crowd are not so nice as us on the outside looking in and I would rather be able around genuine people that fake two faced people any day πŸ˜‰
