50 - Cream Cheese Warming By An Open Fire

Week 50 - Monday 12/11 to Sunday 12/17

Cream cheese warming by an open fire. Jack Frost nipping at your nose. Not traditional lyrics but descriptive of the conditions as I was leaving the Texas family's dwelling for home on Saturday. Dan was providing the cheesecake for that day’s Displaced Californians’ Christmas Party and had neglected to put the cream cheese out to soften overnight. The pictured arrangement would result in gently softened ingredients by the time he returned from dropping me off at the airport. This small sample of creative problem solving has little impact on the great problems that humanity faces but as a holder of an advanced FSO degree, I appreciate clever, simple solutions.
