He simply retreated to his chair as the evening has turned very cold and windy.
A friend was talking about frying onions ... now there's a flavour! And there are a couple of them just waiting for a good excuse ... some rice to add in and a bit of chicken .... and hey presto! Tea/dinner/supper!
That was simple. There are even a few reasonably fresh carrots to add another bit of colour and maybe a stray vitamin or two. So thank you to my friend who was frying onions! I could almost smell them coming along the phone lines!
Like a mighty river flowing,
like a flower in beauty growing,
far beyond all human knowing
is the perfect peace of God.
