I dried oranges slices yesterday. Super simple and I can’t wait to string them on some twine. They’d be sweet hung on a Christmas tree or strung into a garland (I’m going the garland route). Have a peek here for how I did it. (I kept mine in a little longer to deepen the color, but almost deepened them too much. Don’t get cocky with that low temperature! It’s definitely possible to burn the slices.)
It’s so nice to have time this year for projects like this. Last year’s holidays were overly full for me. I’ve had a few deadlines this month – I’m wrapping up a round of Just Five Things today (the ladies always touch my heart) and I did a food photography shoot earlier this week – but mostly this December has felt more spacious. I like that.
I touched upon spaciousness (and my wishes for you) in my December Note. If you don’t receive my Monthly Notes, you can have a peek right here.
I also want to share this with you: Quarterly, the ViewFinders contributors create a community post in which we each share an image and text based upon a chosen theme. For our most recent community post, we chose a favorite image from 2018….which was no small feat for any of us, but we did it! What we’ve put together collectively is a beautiful post. I hope you’ll hop over and have a peek. I’m sure you’ll feel the love coming through.
While the oranges were drying in the oven yesterday, I made the first (of many) batches of this deliciousness. It’s one of our favorite gifts to give this time of year; we’re told by friends that it’s a favorite to receive as well. Win-win.
And I’ve been listening to Christmas music (duh). I made a playlist of some mellow renditions. Wanna listen?
I hope you’re enjoying your December days.
Sending a little love your way, m
