Another Rite of Autumn
When daylight savings time ends, evenings seem to stretch on "forever"
To keep hands busy, I make pomanders
A bag of cheap oranges
A big sack of cloves
And an ice pick
Not cute patterns but good coverage is what I'm after
The house always smells amazing
of cloves and oranges
Once I'm done and have a bowlful,
I mix the spices
And the oranges are cured in the spice mixture
they go into net bags and are tucked in with the knickers and the nightgowns
They last "forever"
I still have one with Jim's T Shirts that's close to 10 years old!
