Hello Friday

I am glad we have finally gotten to Friday.  This week went fast, though. Is that a good thing?

Looks like our warm weather is coming to an end.  I biked 4 of the 5 days this week, though!


I hope to get out some on Saturday as well.

This warm weather makes me miss the what’s blooming posts. I know the garden will be covered in snow all too soon!

Progress being made on the utility sink area. We are waiting on one part for the sink hook up, so we can’t get that in until it arrives. We’ve got most of the flooring done, though. Here is a sneak peek. There is still white plastic protective stuff on the sink, FYI.


We ended up getting a stainless steel sink at a good price and since I will be making soap down here, this is really great. I wanted a counter or something to set stuff on, so this worked out good. I am pretty excited about this  – how nerdy is that?

Speaking of soap, I’ve been playing with pictures for my website. I still need to work on lighting because I am not totally satisfied with these.  Pine:


This one is called Thai Silk:


I love that scent. It’s a tiny bit floral and a powdery with sweet undertones. 

Here’s to having a productive weekend!

    You make the soaps and John does the selling? Or am I wrong? I’m guessing you don’t miss your old job. Hope the weather will be nice to ride this weekend. Have fun!

      No – John doesn’t do selling of soaps. His business is the supply end for soap and candlemakers. He buys stuff in bulk and sells smaller amounts to people who make product.
      I haven’t given up my job, though. Still have to work that for who knows how long 😀

    I want to find a place to live where fall is like this every year! I have loved the warmer days and nights – actually ran the ceiling fan in the bedroom the last couple of nights.

    I think being excited about that sink makes perfect sense!

    How wonderful that you make soap Lori. Something i’ve always wanted to try… We will have a utility sink in the laundry room too. The house came with a huge cast iron one and we will be reusing that one.. Perfect place to give Jinx his occasional bath too without having to bend over a tub. Hugs! deb
