You keep on knocking...

..but you can't come in!

It's nothing out of the ordinary to glance over to the window and see a hen staring in at you here, they are very curious creatures.

However, today Pringles our free ranging bunny decided to indulge in a spot of people watching too. I suspect he was looking for food as there was a thick frost first thing.

We strung our scented decorations today. They don't look particularly decorative but they smell wonderful. I thought about painting them but that may contain the fragrance. We made them by mixing three quarters of a cup of apple sauce, a teaspoonful of ground cloves, a cup full of mixed spice and two tablespoonfuls of glue. Mixed it together, rolled it out and cut it into shapes. Left it to dry out for a couple of days.

We started looking at the history and traditions surrounding Yule today, and hope to continue tomorrow, but we have haircuts in the morning and a party in the afternoon so I may be being over optimistic there.
