Take a break together today.  Enjoy a simple craft.  Reap the benefits.

Linus made these dipped candles...

and some candle holders...
sang a song about candles...

and then we enjoyed a warm dinner on a cold, happy night.
     "But Laura lay awake a little while, listening to Pa's fiddle softly playing and to the lonely sound of the wind in the Big Woods.  She looked at Pa sitting on the bench by the hearth, the firelight gleaming on his brown hair and beard and glistening on the honey-brown fiddle.  She looked at Ma, gently rocking and knitting.
     She thought to herself, 'This is now.'
     Ma and the firelight and the music, were now.  They could not be forgotten, she thought, because now is now.  It can never be a long time ago."  
-Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House in the Big Woods
