Heavy clouds and rain blocked the sun yesterday, resulting in a very dark afternoon. After coming home from shopping, I lit a candle to dispel the gloominess. What is it about a candle, or a flickering fire that is so comforting? I'm not going to ponder the psychology of it; I'll just enjoy it.
Comfort food, to go along with the candle, was on the menu last night. Butternut squash roasted with onion and rosemary - so good.
Is lighting candles on an ordinary evening something you do? Or do you save them for special occasions?
