Happy Homemaker Monday - December 30, 2013

The weather...
-11C today with snow.  Warming up towards the end of the week, but with more snow.  We've already had 30 inches of snow over the last couple of months.  I am ready for winter to be over already! 

Right now I am...
Eating a mince pie! 


That I'm feeling quite tired and could do with a nap.

  1. YUM I have not had a minced pie in years. My grandfather was Scottish and they were his favorite. We have had a lot of snow here in New York as well. Have a great New Year.

    1. Jen - Thanks so much for visiting. I shall be posting my mince pie recipe on Friday. Hope you're having a lovely holiday season and Happy New Year. :)
