Photo Hunters


This weeks theme is hot. So I thought of all the different things that are hot for me. With all the cooking going on in my kitchen yesterday I had tons of hot things to choose from. But then I would have had to stop cooking to take pictures and there was no way my family was going to let me get away with that. So it was after we were stuffed and sitting in misery on the couch watching football that I finally decided on this weeks photo.

I was freezing cold but couldn't light the fireplace since the pilot light hasn't been lit for the season. So I decided to just light a bunch of candles instead. And while it did give me the flames to watch it really just wasn't as good as a big fire. But I really hated to ask my poor Hubs to get up and light it since we were so full. And honestly all any of us really wanted to do was to suck our thumbs, curl up into the fetal position and take a long nap. So for my choice for this week, I settled on a couple of the candles that were lit last night as we tried to recover from the gluttony of our Thanksgiving dinner.


So there you have it, a very long commentary and one little photo to go along with it. For other views on this week's theme visit TNCHICK.com or

That's a beautiful photograph and I enjoyed your post. I had an image of your family kicking back unable to move after dinner. I felt a little bit like that myself after my thanksgiving dinner. Have a great weekend.

Lovely simple candles after the hullaballoo (sp?) of Thanksgiving!

Thanks for visiting me!

Hope you have all managed to get up off the sofa, sounds like you were stuffed.
Has your husband done the pilot light yet or do you have to get the candles out again...?

Cheers Mark

Interesting, isn't it, how the Photo Hunt actually 'allows' many of us to communicate quite a bit with words as well as pictures? ;)

Oh, this is lovely! I've been slacking on my photo hunting, and this makes me wish that I hadn't been. It's RED this week. Gotta find something RED. Maybe my boy in his new RED jammies? Wish me luck - I want to have something as lovely as yours!
