Today was a day to refresh the house. After a few weeks of cold weather, it was very warm today. And breezy, too. Have I ever told you I love the wind? No? Well, now you know something new about me!
It was so very lovely.
We opened doors and windows and let the fresh air in! It was so nice, and especially nice because on Wednesday of this week we are supposed to get six + inches of snow! Amazing since it was almost 70 degrees today!
I also made a homemade simmering potpourri today. It smelled so good, and I can use it over and over.
Here is how I did it.
1. Thinly slice two oranges and two lemons.
2. Fill a pot with water and add the citrus slices.
3. Add cinnamon and cloves.
4. Turn the simmer burner on your stove on and let it simmer away.
That's it - easy peasy. Oh, and as the water evaporates, you can just add more water.
I'm loving the simple, homey, projects I've been doing. I love caring for my home and family in this way.
Have you been working on any project lately?
