I love candles, tea candles are the best on a boat as they don’t stick up high or fall down easily. What I do like most with them is the cozy , warm feeling it gets anywhere you are. Its sure something special with candles and they seem to have a magic power.
I always have a stack of candles on the boat and every day I lid about 10 candles in the winter time just because the cozyness 🙂 I think I just made up a new word there, that happens once in a while. Tonight I found myself sitting looking into the candles and thinking about my grandfather,Willem ( Wim) He was the greatest man I ever known and I miss him everyday. He passed away 2006 but it seems like yesterday. He was my hero and I was his schatje which he always said and that means baby, sweetheart in street language. Schat in Dutch means treasure and that what he meant as in Swedish he always called me skatten which means treasure.
Sorry folks I slipped away there for a while, the post originally was about candles and what they mean to me+ some pictures. Well you came to know my grandfather Willem and learned some new words in foreign languages. Your welcome for all this knowledge I give you here. 🙂 You never know what you end up with when visiting this blog.
