good things for today


Good things for today...

taking a nap in the afternoon... making delicious smelling homemade potpourri (recipe below) ... having a big thick pink strawberry milkshake at the diner with my friend ... receiving a "baby" care package in the mail from my best friend ...

Homemade Potpourri

I love making this potpourri because it is 100% natural, safe to use in the home and it smells so delicious. It reminds me of autumn and Christmas all at once.

In a small pot include:
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 tablespoons of whole cloves
  • half an orange or lemon (squeeze the juice into the pot)
  • enough water to cover everything (about a cup)
Bring everything to a boil and then lower the heat to min so that it just simmers away. In a few minutes you'll begin to smell the delicious scent of everything combined. Keep an eye on the pot and continue to add water to the pot as it evaporates. This mixture can be kept and used again at least once.
