Freeze ~ As We Get Older ~ Christmas Present to Me ~ I Love Rogue River Mural ~ Air Fryer Veggies/Stuffed Sole ~ Martini ~ Eagle Has Landed ~ Cotton Candy

Good 25º everything is frozen morning!

I have a projection clock in the bedroom that shows the time and outdoor temperature. It got down to 22º in the night. I pray no pipes break!!!

The snow yesterday didn't hang around long. It warmed to 40º and it all disappeared, except for up on my mountain. In the afternoon we had some sun... and it heated up to 54º.

This is SO true!
I certainly found out last year who a "friend" was! Not a REAL ONE for sure! It's always sad when someone's "hoity toityness" gets in the way and they can't be honest and true.

My Christmas present to me.... normally every year I buy myself a new pair of LLBean Wicked Good Clogs. They are   shearling lined, and have an outdoor sole. So so so comfy!!! I live in these babies! 

This mural is in downtown Rogue River...
We have several murals here and in Grants Pass. Artists extroadinaire!

Needed to do an Air Fryer meal, so for dinner I heated up the rest of the potatoes/veggies/cheese sauce ( in the Air Fryer that I lined with foil... made it easy to remove the veggies....

14 minutes at 370º. Oh so yummy!
and I cooked a crab/scallops stuffed sole (
filet in the Air Fryer. Same thing, it was frozen, so 17 minutes at 370º and topped all with some Parm cheese...


Oh, and I had that Dirty Sue Martini finally! (3 to 1... gin and martini mix)

December 7th
National Cotton Candy Day

Cotton Candy is a popular summertime treat. That being the case, why do we celebrate this day in the middle of December? Good question.
The Cotton Candy machine was patented in 1899 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton. They brought it to the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904, where is was quite popular. Cotton Candy is a favorite at amusement parks, circuses, fairs, and sports venues.    
Cotton Candy was originally called fairy floss. It is made from Floss (or Flossine) sugar.
