And Away We Go

 The Mister and I spent yesterday morning packing away all the Christmas stuff. With the weather the way it has been we just weren't feeling it anymore. We were fighting the urge to turn on the AC to clear out some of the humidity. It really feels weird outside. We haven't had any severe weather but it feels really creepy.

 It was good to have the loom back in its place again. I have no project planned at the moment but I've got lots of kits that I'll go through to find one and just thinking about it makes me happy.

The wheels are all out again too but it's going to take me a while to figure out what's going on with them. I'm not sure where all the fiber is and what it was all being spun for. I'm sure it will come to me but right now what they need is a good cleaning. Even packed away they really can gather dust. Ah choo...time to get out some Murphy's Oil Soap and give them a good scrubbing.

As for the mincemeat crumble recipe that was requested, I found it here. Actually, I found it on the back of the jar but you can find it on the Nonesuch page. I still have half a jar left after making the crumbles and a small pie. A little bit of that stuff sure goes a long way.


  1. Doesn't it feel GOOD to have the house back in order?

    We didn't put up a tree, so that wasn't taking up room, but we do have to put away the outside stuff tomorrow. All the other things are more "winter" than Christmas and they will stay out a little while longer.

  2. I know what you mean about the urge to put everything away-I have a ton of laundry to go through -think 11 beds of sheets to wash! But, I am really ready to put away all the sparkly and get my house all back to order!

  3. Love the recipe, but we should all substitute butter for the Crisco. Those trans fats aren't good for us.

  4. I love your crumble. THis is the year I fell in love with Stollen! MMMMMMM

  5. Thanks for the recipe - definitely have to try those!

    We've got a storm rolling in tonight. At first they said snow, but now are saying freezing rain. I guess it's just watch and wait.

  6. I guess I better get on packing up my decorations too. Some how the puting away is never as much fun as the getting it out. :-)

  7. This weather certainly is creepy!
    I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't remember what all the fiber is for!
