I agree that downsizing can be peaceful, mostly freeing though not having to worry about getting this or that mainly 'cause it won't fit in where we live!
I don't know that you can downsize much more than we have unless you live under a bridge, well maybe the cousins can, right Rickers?
I envy you! Travel is in my future, now just to get the hubs on board.

I wish I had my camera yesterday while on the road. The sun had a particular glow to one side that was more star-like. Much like the rings you see around the moon when there is a rain forecast. Not sure if I could have taken a pic of it but it was unusual to say the least.
BTW my sword is glowing and says we may have a troll on the board

We had rainbow ice clouds here the other day (they have a proper name but I forget what it is) -- first time I've seen that in SoCal! Tho we got 'em in Bozeman pretty regularly (much bigger and more impressive, too). I tried to get a picture but it didn't amount to much. Digital cameras don't seem to capture that sort of thing as well as old-fashioned slow film cameras did.

Optional ingredients:
-- Onion powder, dried onion, or onion soup mix to taste
-- Salt and pepper, or other seasonings to taste
-- Leftover chopped bits of anything (meat, bacon, cheese, veggies)

Heat through, but do not boil. Top with butter and lemon pepper, and/or a thin slice of cheese.
This is how you make real cream of potato soup, except you use real potatoes not fake. You could also switch out the potatoes with broccoli and have cream of broccoli. Awesome recipe, if you figured this out yourself then you are a natural cook!

Yeah, I couldn't remember the term for them offhand... they come in all sorts of different models. Good indicator of extremely cold air aloft.

Another interesting phenomenon is a sun column, I forget what it's officially called, but it looks for all the world like a narrow column of sunlight standing all by itself. I've only seen that once.

Yeah, this one is my own invention. Then come to find out that there is a very similar recipe in the cookbook Idahoan Instant Mashed Potatoes used to publish. Main difference is I use milk as the base instead of water. But I make instant potatoes with milk too, so they taste better!

Tho about half the time I eat the instant potatoes just as they come out of the box... they are good mixed with Nestles Quik!!

Cream of broccoli? How disgusting! I guess some people make cream of cauliflower instead, which sounds somewhat better.

Considering some of the oddness that goes on in my kitchen, I think you misspelled "unnatural cook"

Speaking of soup, the bounty from the holidays has been cooking the better part of the day.
Supper for a week at least
Look at the cooking in Wyoming thread for some good ideas from our friends there.
