The temperatures in the mid-Willamette Valley are below freezing. On Sunday we had a power outage. I would go out and paint in the barn but my acrylics and oils are not drying properly. I made Tye Spring Rolls and dipped them in hot spicy sweet and sour sauce. When there was just two left I dumped the rolls in the chicken soup. The tapioca covering desolved into an overall thickening. Delighful to sip by the wood stove fire. Maybe Iwill cut up some paper like I did the food and make a collage. And maybe not. It is a good time to curl up with a book or write holiday greetings. I wish all my visitors warmth and peace.
