It has been overcast and rainy all day today. I've barely moved from the sofa, mainly because some stomach bug woke me at 2:30 this morning and has kept a hold on me ever since. I can't imagine what caused it because I didn't eat much of anything yesterday at all. All I've had to eat and drink today are a bowl of rice and a glass of tea.

The illness has kept me from even thinking about a picture for the day. A while ago I lit a candle and decided it was as good a subject as anything. Have y'all ever added whole cloves to a candle while it's burning? Mmmmmm...smells sooo good. Just watch out. The cloves will catch fire and send up a rather large flame. I just place them on the outer edges of the candle so the hot wax helps release the aroma.

Anyway, I'm headed back to the sofa. Later, y'all.

That sounds like a lovely idea, and that is a beautiful picture, especially taken by a *not feeling good* lady!

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Hope it's only a 24-hour thing, and in that case you'll be well very soon. Take care.

I always look forward to your photos. This one looks like broken glass.

I'm feeling a little better, but I dare not eat anything.

The candle holder is one of several Melanie gave me. They are very Christmas-y, I think. :D

I hope it's a short one, too. I hate feeling like this. :/

The cloves are a great trick I discovered by accident. I also accidentally let a few catch fire. Ooops! :D

No, I didn't get the email. Darn it! Can you resend? :(

I just resent it! I had used the lj address which I thought would forward it to you - but maybe not. It might go into the in-box. I never think to look there - if I can even find it!

I should have checked sooner!

Sorry you have stomach distress. I did the same the day after Thanksgiving.

When you are photographing something like this, isn't it rewarding to note the colors and textures involved? My photos may not mean much to anyone else, but they serve their purpose by bringing me such creative pleasure.

Oh, I hope you are feeling better, too.

Yes, it is rewarding. I've really enjoyed this project and have learned so much participating in it. I'm not sure if I'll do 365 again, but I'll definitely keep taking pictures because it's become a hobby now that I enjoy very much.

Thank you for the clove tip. I burn candles nightly, year round.

I found an unopened jar of cloves that Mel left in one of the candle holders and plopped a few in a candle on a whim. Wonderful!

I'm so sorry you were sick, but I read your later postings before this one, and it sounds like you're better now. That's good.

Cool picture!

I'm a tad on the weak side, but I'm up and getting ready for the school week. Hope the kids are good. I don't really feel like police work today. :/

You were sick? What happened?

I love the photo. Sometimes the most obvious and simplest of things are best.

The last few years I've noticed dressing gives me indigestion, but I don't know if it was the dressing or if I was just primed for stomach upset. Boy, was it ever upset. For two days.

Thanks. That's an odd candle holder that projects the light all over the place. ;)
