...glimpse of an evening
Its been cold and rainy all day and I've just come home. Its evening, and the electricity is off. I found all the candles I could and have lit them all. They are lovely – and I hope they will last the evening... I have a little radio that my friends sent for a Christmas gift – it runs on batteries and I was so pleased to find a classical music radio station tonight, so its been lovely listening to that as I swish around the house cleaning it up and making it cosy! While cooking up dinner the radio station began to change and went to Arabian, Turkish Albanian music, then on to Italian opera – and now is an hour of Elvis Presley! Radio Shqiptar has given me a charming evening! I'll settle down to reading my present “books to read” and I feel so grateful for all I have and enjoy. Oh – do you like the lion that sits on top of my fridge?
