Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. I really meant to post a few more times last week but with company, Thanksgiving dinner to prepare, hubby getting the stomach flu (poor guy missed Thanksgiving dinner) and a daughter home from college I just didn't get around to it.
Before life took over, hubby and I tried our hand at soap making. Oh no!! This could be addicting. There are so many pretty and fun things to do to soap. But our first batch made 25 bars so I don't think I can make soap every week.
Soap making is dangerous so we had to wear gloves, goggles and long sleeves.
I will spare you the pictures of me in my goggles. My cheeks are too big and I couldn't smile right with the googles on.
The oil and lye need to be around the same temp., about 90 to 100 degrees.
Wait 3 days...
Does anyone else have a list a mile long of things you have to do, but you just want to do the things you want to do??? That is me!! I wasn't planning on making any more gifts but I would sure like to make my nephews some knitted monsters. And of course, they will have to be mailed out!!!
Yesterday our dishwasher died so we spent some time shopping for one. Nothing!! that didn't have to be ordered. Hubby is going to go again today and look at one more place. I only have two wants, that it be stainless steel and that the buttons are not on the front. Hopefully he finds one and today will be filled with putting it in. I will get to my lists!!!
