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.


  1. Goodness how white and frosty and beautiful it looks over your way and how busy you always are, I don't know how you fit it all in to a day.

  2. Your frost looks like snow! We have had light frosts - which are damaging buds on bushes and trees that had begun to think it was spring. Lot of fog/mist - interspersed with rain! I'm already in thick clothing, goodness knows what I will do when it is really winter?


Thank you for taking the time and leaving a comment I do appreciate it, I may not always answer comments but I do read them all.
