Photo-a-Day - October 2012 - Day 11: Something Close Up

Photo-a-Day - October 2012 - Day 11:  Something Close Up
A combination of poor eyesight, a lot of large furniture, and living in a place with very few straight lines of passage makes walking around my place in the dark very hazardous to ones health and limbs. 

I am the Queen of Nightlights.  I have at least one in almost every room.  There is something reassuring about never walking into a darkened room--too many mysteries read, I suspect--and not having to turn on a bright light if I get up in the middle of the night. 

The challenge is finding fun nightlights.  I don't do fru-fru, but love the LCD lights.  My lights will go through a succession of different colors if I want, but I usually set them to whatever level of light I want for a particular path; white close to the floor for brightness, blue in the kitchen wall sockets, red in the bathroom which allows me to see without really waking me up. 

Whenever I travel, I pack two nightlights and I have one that permanently lives at my friend's house. 

Isn't it lovely that they have become so inexpensive and that stores such as Costco sell them in packets of 10 or 12.  I do love my nightlights.
