Now that the colder weather has set in and dusk seems to occur right after lunch, I have started using candles at the dinner table once again.

He has taken on the responsibility of lighting them.  The other morning as I was serving bacon and eggs, I saw that he had lit the candles.  The rationale must have been that if the candles are on the table and you are dining at the table, light the candles.

I suggested we save the candles for dinner. He was ok with that idea and blew them out.  I don’t think I’ll have to hide the matches, but I am going to be more aware about candle use.
