Time sure flies around here. I was going to try to keep up blogging more often and here it's been almost three weeks since I blogged. This is what I've been doing in the interim: This first shot is a picture of my back hall before I cleaned it. That bookcase is solid maple and we've used it as a catch-all for gardening stuff and etc., for 18 years. I cleaned it off and took it to the shed/shop and sometime this summer I'm going to strip it and refinish it and put it in the library where it belongs. The door goes to the back yard; the garage door is on the left and the door to the half bath is on the right.
down--to--earth.blogspot.com. Rhonda is very knowledgeable on a lot of subjects and I love her writing (and envy her writing ability too!). She published a book a few months ago and I bought it and have read it twice. She's doing the whole simple living thing and what I really like is she encourages everyone to do their own version for their own reasons. My reason for making soap? I like the idea of no chemicals and all natural. I've been buying handmade soap for a couple of years now from the Oregon Soap Shoppe near here and really love it. But I just wanted to try making some myself. It took me half the day to get everything organized and set up -- the soap making itself didn't really take all that long. I learned a lot and maybe next time I'll add some fragrance, or not.
Trying something new - always good to expand the horizons.
