Portland Paused

Since it started snowing a few days ago Portland paused. Some stores closed earlier and other places did not open at all. No work until tomorrow it looks like for now. A few more days to relax and enjoy life.
Friday it was way too cold to do much outside, the wind was angry and the snow came down hard like little grains. But yesterday it was almost like a winter wonderland and I made a few snow lights outside, snölykta in Swedish, to brighten up the evening. I used to make a lot of these growing up in Sweden.





I spent time inside and watched The White Tiger, a movie which I really liked. I really like seeing stories about other cultures. Then I watched the 20/20 special about Anna Nicole Smith called "Tragic Beauty" and a tragic story it is indeed.
And last night I watched the documentary about Britney Spears called "Framing Britney Spears'". Now I love Britney and she can do nothing wrong in my eyes. And I am happy that more people are coming to her defense and understand how wrong she was treated by many (barf on Justin T he is so lame). Britney is amazing.
Tonight I started watching a mini series (only four episodes) on Netflix called Unorthodox and so far I like it a lot. A fascinating view into the life of Hasidic Jews which I do not know much about. Inspired by an autobiography by Deborah Feldman called, Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots. Again, fascinating!
Today I had Pet Pack and I was also the barista for Potluck In The Park. FUN! This Sunday was the 1540th consecutive Sunday for Potluck In The Park, rain, shine or snow they are there giving out food, blankets, socks, gloves, toiletries, tarps and coffee. And so much more.





This evening things turned icy. The trees looked pretty.





And since it is Valentine's Day....here are some hearts from around my place.
Happy Valentine's Day everybody....! ❤️
