Ok so that picture was taken in October 2010....pay no attention to that calendar. LOL!! This was my first batch of homemade lye soap. Notice no long sleeves? Not a good thing! Everything is covered but my arms. This very first batch taught me real fast to use long sleeves. Oh and also "DO NOT" take your gloves off and touch the glove that has soap splashed on it! I have no fingerprint on my right hand. But its just one finger so I have been very careful since. That first batch has turned into a million slabs of soap. (Okay I may be exaggerating on the million but it feels like it) The first batches were hot process soap which is so much different than the cold process. I will explain more later on this topic. Right now I am headed to bed. Its been another soap day for me!

I worked here at my home yesterday. My husband put signs up for me and I had a plant sale. I was so happy to see a lot of people here at once. Actually kinda scared me at first. So that feeling passed fast. I was busy cleaning out the cold frame. There were several of my plants that did not make it for some reason or another. And at the same time talking with many people that came buy and bought stuff. So after all that was over I got myself cleaned up and went outside by the pond to get some, "me" time. The toads and frogs were singing and signing. Finally got a picture of one when he was blown up. What a site to see. Look at the way those eyes are. Fantastic!! Then I had to take a picture of my pond.
