Snow candles and butter update

We will have our family Yule celebration tomorrow. We decided to make candles especially for the occasion - snow candles! We filled bowls with snow, made a small hole, added a piece of wick and gradually filled it up with layers of melted wax and wax chips.


The result is, ermmm, interesting *grin*. Hopefully they will burn well.


We made butter yesterday. I had memories of doing it as a child and it took for ever. It only took us about ten minutes which surprised me. We just placed a carton of room temperature double cream in an empty jar and shook it. We didn't add any salt and it tastes bland - rather like grease. It was still a success though.

I'm ever so tired right now. It's that frantic, social time of year when it becomes all to tempting to burn the candle at both ends. Busy, busy, busy....
