    Let's play Good News / Bad News

    Bad news - now that my husband has a new Mac, he hates using my computer because it's SO slow. I'm not sure if that's bad news or good news. It IS slow but not really that bad. Good news - because my laptop is 8 years old and so slow (according to him), he suggested I go look at computers. I...

    Red or White?

    I decided that, since we live in the Okanagan, which is wine country, I'd make some Okanagan themed soaps. I've made beer soap before, using a local beer so this was a natural progression. Here are my two wine soaps, red (Merlot Madness, scented with Merlot FO and White Wine Whimsy scented with...

    2020 Pics of your garden

    Just one pic today. This is one of my luffa plants reaching out for the trellis. I love how they just seem to know that the trellis is there and reach for it like little fingers. I have three plants this year, out of 12 seeds planted.

    Soap turning soft when used.

    A need for levity

    This one came across my FB feed, thanks to a co-member of the DIY Bath & Body Group. I've watched it twice now; the first time, my husband was asleep and I had to muffle my laughter. I watched it again today, with John, and I laughed even harder. <iframe width="560" height="315" src=""...
