December 29 – Honoring Spirits of Hearth and Home

Yuletide continues and on this tenth day we honor the Spirits of the Home and Hearth – asking them to watch over our home and tools and to light our way through the year to come.

Work is customarily set aside for the Yuletide celebration, and as it draws to a close, this is the day to begin preparing for things to be done; sorting yarns and fabrics, looking over stores of herbs and spices, sharpening the knives.
At our home, the Yule tree has made it’s way outside to serve another few weeks as a light in the darkness, the decorations are being carefully packed away and the common rooms are returning to their usual selves.

The pups are tuckered out on the floor near the fire and leftovers from our feasting are being tucked away into the freezer.  Last night’s Roast Beef  with gravy,  along with the roasted potatoes and carrots will become a beef pot pie using leftover pie dough.  Some of the leftover ham and cheeses has gone in to a Cheesy Potato Casserole for breakfast.  I have more ham to freeze and a turkey thawing in the garage for tomorrow nights supper.
