The Sweet Smell of Christmas

After my friend Heather mentioned a potpourri she was simmering at her house this morning, I rummaged in the pantry to see if I could create some of my own...
It is definitely smelling like Christmas
in our schoolroom this afternoon! :-)

Christmastime Simmering Potpourri

zest of 1 orange
2 tablespoons red hot cinnamon candies
1 tablespoon whole cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

In a small saucepan, combine ingredients with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil and stir until candies are melted. Reduce heat to simmer. Enjoy the sweet smell of Christmas all through the house!

Remember to keep an eye on the potpourri,
and add water as needed.

All Done!

Poncho completed during oral spelling test time this morning!

When wrapping it up for my niece,
I will be sure to include leftover yarn
for plenty of matching hair bows. :-)
