Thank You

To my dad, my husband, my uncle on my dad's side, my two uncles on my mom's side, my brother, his wife, my other brother's wife, and my dear nephew for their selfless service to our country. Without people like you we would not enjoy the freedoms we have in this vast country. You give up so much of your lives to make this world a safer place, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

A Busy Couple Of Weeks

The last few weeks have been very busy for our family. My dear daughter is on the high school volleyball team. They just played in the Northern Regional Playoffs and took first place. Yea Team! In honor of this occasion (which last happened 8 years ago), and to show my support for the team while they play for the state championship, I painted my toenails. The school colors are orange and black so....

While waiting for my nails to dry I melted up a few oils and made this.

Right now it has wax paper on it to cut down on white ash. It is a wonderful fragrance call Kauai Ginger Blossom. You can get it here. Suz from Oregon Trails Soap Supply has some killer fragrances that soap beautifully. This is what it will look like tomorrow.

You can buy it here.

After putting the soap up I finished something I started last night. I found this wonderful, easy bread recipe from this site, Noshings. She has a great blog and her photos and recipes are to die for. And yes, she makes soap, too.
I made one loaf last night, just plain. This morning I added in a few extras.

Yum Yum Good!
