Back when I first moved into my home, I had gone mattress shopping at Jordan’s Furniture in Nashua, NH. In their “sleep lab”, they had painted their ceiling dark blue and had Christmas lights strung all over, simulating a starry sky. In their newest store in Natick, MA, they go one step further and have fiber optic “stars” on their ceiling. Oh, to sleep under the stars every night!
In my bedroom, I recreated the starry night with a set of Christmas lights. When the kids were babies, they always calmed down when we held them in our bed looking at the lights. Eventually, I added lights to each of their bedrooms as well.
But outside, there had only been decorative lights around Halloween and Christmas. No lights in the spring and summer and I wasn’t about to get fake lighted palm trees. Finally, I bought a set of market umbrella lights. Using an automatic timer, my deck is magically lit every night.
I can also see the lights looking out from my bedroom window.
They make me sing that Church song, “Under the Milky Way Tonight”. They make me very happy.
