Our subject this week is GLOW,and since we live by the Pacific Ocean it would have been easy to go with a great sunset glow of which we have many that are spectacular.  However, I have wonderful memories of a firelight glow I experienced a couple of years ago when we went to Norway.  Traveling far north we visited a place where sledding dogs were raised and trained.  It was a cold, cold day with wind and rain.  But the dogs were wonderful and we were able to hold a couple of puppies as well as pet the dogs.  But the cold was worth it.  There were several tepee-like yurts in the grounds where hot tea was offered.

Take a look at this:

This is the photo on which I based my twinchie.  A wonderful experience of a firelight glow, followed by hot tea and some kind of cake, which I don't remember too well, since the hot tea and the firelight glow were paramount.  Wonderful memories!

That's a really great twinchie, Chris, with some lovely memories behind it. I don't think I am going to make it with my inchie this week - the days ran away with me and I will be busy all day Monday :{ Maybe I will post it later in the week, if I get one done!

A nice picture, you cah feel the heat. When my oldest son at about four, first went to a house with an open fire, he was most thrilled and told all his friends after, his aunt had a bonfire in her living room. Have you noticed, as a thumbnail, your twinchy looks like an eye.
