We spent the morning making treats for the birds (to give tomorrow for the solstice) and treats for ourselves (mince pies!! YES!!!). I LOVE mince pies. I’ve learned the hard way not to give them as gifts around here and M doesn’t like them either but Alex and I love them so all the more for us Ha Ha! I made and canned some mincemeat a few years back and I must have made a ton because I know I used a lot last year (ahem) and it’s still going strong. I must have known that it wouldn’t go to waste.
The afternoon was spent soaking every ray of sun we could outside and with the wee ones asleep at last the Autumn books have been put away to make room for our winter collection. I think M will be thrilled to see these out again (I know I am), we’ve got some really magical ones for winter.
