Because I’m Bored

A Single Candle to Light the Night

Being “under the weather” on a weekend sucks, doesn’t it?

I had plans for today – shopping, maybe a little outside photography (despite the cold weather).  But I’m just not up to it today.  Perhaps I did too much that last couple of days, who knows?

In any event, my photography was limited to inside my own house.  Flickr’s theme of the week is “Flames” – thus, the photo at the top of this post.  Not what I intended to do – I had ambitiously thought I would put together something with ice cream and a candle (Fire and Ice[Cream)]), but didn’t know where my nice glass bowl is, didn’t have a white votive candle, and saw when I went onto Flickr that someone else had already beat me to a very similar shot, although they used snow instead of ice cream.  I think my idea is better.


Since I was fooling around with the editing software, I decided to see what black-and-white would do for the photo.  I think it came out quite well:

Kind of looks like the moon behind the flame in both photos, doesn’t it?  I’m not telling how I got that in there (mostly because I don’t know myself).

If anyone with more imagination than me wishes to use either photo as the basis for a story, feel free.  Just link back here so I get that special feeling we all enjoy.

Happy Sunday, Everyone.

    Don’t feel too bad. It was too cold out for me so I stayed in. For a while I got antsy as I saw the bright sunshine but that cold ….. Easterly winds are brutal. No thanks! Hope you feel better soon, CM!! 💞

    I saw an old flame today, and it put me over the moon. So I reached out and touched her. She slapped me down so hard my face felt like burning wax. You see, she was married.

    So am I, come to think of it. Perhaps old flames are best left to flicker out.

    The End.


  8. There’s something going around. I think it’s called a cold and so is the weather.


  9. No, actually in my case, it’s a colitis flare. It will pass, so to speak.

    Fire and Ice Cream does sound interesting. Could still try for that, when you’re feeling better. 🙂

    Very nice indeed. Hope you’re feeling better today.


  12. You’re bored but I still see the light in you, CM. LOL! I love the pics of the candle especially the one in black and white. I like to view things in black and white. (•‾⌣‾•)و ̑̑♡

    Sorry I’m so late to the party, CM. I hope you’re feeling better mid-week!


  14. Oh, what a clever one you are. I love both candle flames – they each evoke a different mood. The sun is fading here and I’m off to light some candles to put some beauty in my night, as you did.


  15. Nice words , but to me getting bored is a blessing and here’s why
