Nope, I am still in shock from what happened last week. Which makes the fact that for two days I have seen the following even more spectacular.
The rainbow can only be seen when conditions are just right. Light, water, angle, and being in the right place at the right time are all elements to being able to witness such a thing.
From a dark sky full of gloom to be suddenly blessed to see all the colors that are contained in each rain drop, a spectrum of color. What a simple joy!
So many only want to see only the dark sky, the rain clouds, the windy conditions that keep them inside (ok, a virus is also keeping many inside), or only see what is binging on their phone. As we all put down our phones, and look at the sky I hope we all see are rainbows in this darkness that has invaded our world in the last year.
My hope is that each of my blog followers will also enjoy a rainbow of any sort in your travels today. Be kind to one another and be safe.
Another rainbow from my walk this morning 12 January 2021.
This year will be different than most as we celebrate at home and not camping like we did in 2019.
The Dutch government made it unlawful to shoot fireworks this year. I celebrated the no fireworks rule! Hopefully a new tradition as it would be better for the environment and better for those of us who suffer from PTSD.
So instead we decided to make some traditional Dutch treats. Oliebollen and appelbeignets. Known in English as oil ball donuts and apple donuts.
We did take the shortcut of making these from a box.
We started with the apple donuts.
We decided we would use our CADAC cooking system outside for this part of the process.
Then after we ate enough of those we just had to stuff ourselves with the next traditional donut. Oliebollen!
There is a reason we only eat these treats once per year. When we eat a few of these on New Year’s Eve we are really sick of them until the following year!
Happy New Year to our followers, friends and family. We wish all of you a healthy and happy 2021.
