Screenlight from a Tube TV

At the Ohio History Connection today.

Ozzie and Harriet Show playing on a TV in the Lustron Home. 

 I can only imagine how heavy this television would be should one try to lift it.

Note the date on the calendar 1953!

Rainbowlight on a Door Jamb

From the archives- Ohio 2016

There’s nothing like light, refracted.

Rainbowlight on a door jamb via the dining room chandelier and a bit of sun coming in the front window.

Becky B has been Struck by Moonlight again as the #Januarylight challenge continues. 

A Nightlight in My Family’s Kitchen

It’s my second post in response to the Light Squares challenge by Becky. You can see her Romantic Streetlights here 

Should you get up in the night and make your way to the kitchen, you’ll find this sweet nightlight aglow.


Christmas Lights, Candlelight, and Moonlight

Taking up Becky’s January Square Challenge of LIGHT. 

Not my house, but it is so inviting and the candles are flickering along the sidewalk.

And yes, that is the moon up at the top of the photo.

The temperature dropped to 32 and the lights shine in the darkness, making winter beautiful.

Becky says (via Cee’s Photography post of a lighthouse at Twilight)

I’m proposing our January squares are filled with words ending in light that means one or more of the following; sunlight, floodlights, firelight, skylights, candlelight, sidelights, starlight, footlights, moonlight, streetlights, torchlight, taillights, gaslight, headlights, or, as I have today, twilight – whether that be the astronomical, nautical or civil twilight. And feel free to find your own _____light, there are more than 50 words which end in light!

Power Outage Created True Candlelight Mass

Saturday night, 5:00 Mass at St.Patrick Michael and Jack were altar servers. When we arrived, the power was out. Total blackout.   As the sun set while we were inside, the light from the stained glass windows disappeared and it got more dark. Father announced you could use cell phones in church to use your flashlight. With no electricity there was no organ but a harpsichord played What Child is this?/Greensleeves tune and for the recessional everyone sang Joy to the World as the cantor started the well known hymn, acapella.

A true candlelight mass. It was actually quite beautiful.

Erika said to me,” You just said you wanted to watch that show, where people re-enacted the 1800s.”

‘Tis the Season for Model Trains

Franklin Park Conservatory and the Columbus Main Library have creative model train displays created by Applied Imagination (click for article) a company founded by Paul Busse.

Here’s the Enchanted Express Garden Railway at Franklin Park in Columbus Ohio.  You can see the Three Little Pigs Houses, Rapunzels  Tower and the Old Woman in the Shoe House and Cinderella’s Castle to name a few..  I think Charlie could watch the display revolve all day long, waiting for the trains to reappear, around and around.

Another Leaf or Two

December first- I got in my daughter’s car and found another Leaf on the windshield today.

I took a photo of it and said “ another leaf but with blue sky today.”

When we got where we were going (Worthington OH) Charlie (4) said

“I’ve got a Leaf on my window. I want to take a picture.”

I handed back the phone and he took the second photo.
