Simple Pleasures :: Hunkering Down





Hunkering down with winter crafts - beautifully smelling pommanders which even now are scenting the house. Icicle pictures - with glitter and sparkle. Some snuggling in the early evening with rice pudding and jam.

Simple pleasures indeed.

  1. well alright, as long as you promise to share the rice pudding...

  2. I guess I'm too late, it seems the pudding is already gone ;-)
    I did the oranges, too and the smell is amazing, ahhhh!
    Do you have in Islam in december a day of 'celebration' too? My turkish friend had some weeks ago a day we call it 'sugar fest' but I dont know the English translation, sorry,argh! She made the best sweets ever!

  3. No English Muslims dont have anything for December - I suppose traditional Muslim countries have their own traditions before Islam which have been kept and made a part of their Islamic culture, but as a minority fitting in to non-islamic culture we have yet to weave our history with our faith. But no, we don't celebrate anything, but as a family we 'acknowledge' the winter solstice, as more a matter for education rather than celebration!
