Be Careful What You Wish For

my yard nymph looks like an Ice Fairy

As the holiday break lay before me, now a week and a half ago, I hoped for time to work on my entry for the upcoming Maine Art Educators Association Members Show at the Saco Museum. I wanted to also get a few things done around the house like cleaning my frig - the dear dinosaur is over 27 years old (my electrician says I should says this quietly) and in need of a good cleaning. Two days before Christmas we had an ice storm and lost power. Late on Christmas day the power came back and by then we were using the unheated mudroom floor for refrigeration. I couldn't just load all the food back into a messy frig, so this is how my wish came true and I found the time to do a nice job cleaning my frig... on Christmas evening. I am pleased that it's clean and I will know all year long what day I last cleaned it!
