Light Up My Life

Lamps.  I have been thinking about lamps a lot lately.  We don’t have any and we have just moved into a home with very high ceilings and recessed lighting. The ambiance of the recessed lighting is nice, but when I am reading or sewing or doing other close work, I actually like to see what I am looking at.

We have absolutely great exterior light fixtures. I guess I could go sit on the front porch to do me reading, but even though Spring has arrived, it is still a bit chilly out there in the evening! Both of the back decks have brilliant lighting, too, but once again, they are outside. I want great lighting inside. Has anybody priced lamps lately? Yeow!

I suppose I could do all my work in the kitchen. I have under-the-cupboard lighting all the way around and can make it bright as day in there. plus I have acres of counter space — but it is all for standing. I much prefer sitting when I do my bead work and embroidery. As for reading, the bathroom lights are quite bright. I will just read in the sauna tub.
