A Simple Touch of Home





We have a pot of water simmering on the stove. Into this post I have added, a handful of whole cloves, a whole cinnamon stick broken in half, the peels left over from the oranges we ate for snack.
Left to simmer with a watchful eye, as it is necessary to occasionally add a bit more water to the pan.

The house smells so yummy. Let's go sit in the living room and read a good book together!

Oh, your home is just so lovely! I really like the idea of simmering orange peels and spices, but I'm afraid Irving wouldn't because of the gas it would use. :) I'm just sitting here imagining the aroma . . .

What a wonderful idea for creating a homey smell indoors! Your home looks so beautiful Kimmie. :) Glad to be back online- I've missed everyone terribly! How are things going towards the adoption?
Blessings, Saminda xo
