Frost and Spicy Balls
We have had a few hard frosts this week

In contrast the past couple of days have been very mild, when out stocking up on animal feed yesterday I overheard a farmer telling the cashier we are in for the worst winter for 100 years.
I have been making some spiced orange pomander balls, they are a lovely natural air freshener and very decorative, even more so for this time of year
As well as making a few of these I have been looking up recipes for making fudge, getting things organised for the new Alpacas arriving, unpacking more boxes in my craft cabin in readiness for a load of stuff arriving this week end from the shop.
I have finished off a few Christmas gifts, made some Christmas decorations, pop on to my craft blog to see them. Catching up with housework. Keeping the home fires burning.
Tomorrow is going to be a day of cooking, I am just about to do some scramble eggs and smoked salmon to eat then sit in front of the fire cutting out fabric for a patchwork quilt.
Hope you are all staying warm.
