It snowed most of today.   It’s calm and quiet.   The snow has gently  covered the farm fields  and changed shrubs and trees into pristine, shimmering art.   It’s  time to start thinking about  decking the halls.   Or listening to Richard Burton reading  Dylan Thomas ‘s A Child’s Christmas in Wales.     A gentle beginning of this frequently hectic  season.  No shopping in the malls.   No parties.    Simply enjoying the snow and the day.

This Christmas Essence  will give your home a lovely spicy perfume.

Chop the peel of an orange and a lemon.  Break up a good-sized stick of cinnamon, two  bay leaves and add everything in a small pot.  Add 2-3 cups of water and simmer.   (watch don’t let it boil dry)  Your house will smell like Christmas.
