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!


  1. Oh yum yum indeed! I can almost smell that bread. Just saw "How to cook your Life" the other day and there's a lot about the art of bread baking in that wonderful movie. It got me thinking...I want to bake bread, too! But then I'm missing the crucial ingredient: CHILI ! Oh chili cheese bread...

  2. Cocobong, this bread is no knead and is super simple, that's why I like it. :-)
    The chilies are from my brother-in-law's garden and they are sweet. Next bread will have jalapeƱo chilies and more cheese!

  3. let me know when that one comes out of the oven, and I'll be right over!

  4. So exciting for your darling daughter!!

    Orange and the Giants...the World Champion San Francisco Giants.

    I'd love to try that bread!

  5. Katherine, it is funny you should think of that, David was just saying yesterday that he hopes it is the year of the black and orange. I believe he did also mention the World Series Winners! :-)
    The only problem with the bread is that it tastes so dang good I am eating the whole thing!
    Remember big T won 10 games at the bowling alley, you might be coming up here sooner than you think.
