Music and Candlelight

Just a quick post before I head to bed. It has been another strange day for weather, and has ended up snowing quite heavily this evening! I took the opportunity to enjoy the sight, turning off the lights between 8 and 9 p.m. for earth hour, and lit candles.

Later I listened to live streaming classical music through this URL

which included some favorite pieces, Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, and Roderigo's Concierto de Aranjuez. What a lovely and relaxing end to the day.

  2. What a lovely way to wind down after a busy day. Candlelight is so sobering I think. The flickering flame can so easily help your mind drift away from the mundane day to day stuff. Relaxing should always be done by candlelight.. unless it's day time! ;o)
    I had a funny sort of day, lots of sunshine in the morning, heavy rain in the afternoon. I filled the trees with fatty balls and nuts for the birds and I felt a certain sense of achievement when I did the 'girly' finishing touches to my dining area. I think the best bit was my daughter and I embarking on an excercise session with the aid of a dancersise DVD. Not sure if we achieved anything other than tummy-ache from all the laughing! Have a lovely day.

  3. Daffy ~ Thanks so much for your comment and yes, candlelight does have an enhancing quality :)

    Crazy weather seems to be the norm. I'm sure the birds are most appreciative of your yummy offerings. I have collected a bunch of large pine cones, and roll them in peanut butter and then bird seed. I screw a little hook in the top and hang them off branches.

    Your delightful comment about your exercise session with your daughter brought a big smile to my face and warmth to my heart. Isn't shared laughter, especially belly laughs, one of the best exercises and experiences there is? What a great relationship the two of you have :) You've brought a memory back to me, that I must share one day on my blog.

  4. Flighty, it was indeed ~ mellowed me right out! There's something about certain music that reaches somewhere deep within, a connection of sorts ~
