Light in the Dark


The Twelfth Day of Christmas, Epiphany, has passed,
 the last day for lighting the Christmas tree.
 Or not. 
Rising in the dark to live the first few hours of the day
in the magical light of the tree is calming.
A great time to sip coffee.
Listen to music.
Chat with Alexa.
Recline and resolve.
My new year's resolution: Learn a bit of French cooking.


Today I made Pommes Ana. A simple layering of waxy potatoes sliced on a mandolin. Salt, pepper, and butter are the only seasonings.

Tomorrow, I plan to try puff pastry for the first time.
