    I walked in today at 7am to a (almost) sparkling department :). The floors etc were actually done last night, and yesterdays techs actually cleaned, dusted and cleaned the windows. It was really really deep cleaned. I grabbed some adhesive remover to get some last tape residue off the cabinets...

    As everybody is aware, i am estatic that i am moving to the 7am shift. The person that previously occupied that shift for the past 15-20 years was also “senior tech” which meant she was responsible for some daily operations…which apparently she did nothing. Come find out last week, we are...

    Sick doggy

    Poor pupster. Wishing you guys well. edit… when i had my cat spayed (she was already a few years old), i had kitty doses of morphine. I was soooo worried about the incision site. I got her a cone and all. But the drugs kept her so loopy that i feared that i was doing more damage than good. She...

    with the exception of my pouring containers with spouts, all of my bowls came from the dollar store. They are all perfect. I had spatulas from there too, but they come apart after a while, at which point they become mixing sticks lol. I splurge finally and got a nicer set of spatulas from...

    I had always been a 1st shifter until i started this job 5 years ago. I started out per diem, but went full time. It is SUPPOSED to be 3-11, but we have been so short staffed that i pretty much do whatever she needs me to do. Going back to 1st shift is going to be such a relief. I told her that...

    I start my new hours next week...7am-3pm. I am stoked. I have been working so many crazy hours since I started working at my hospital 5 years ago. I have literally given up a chunk of my life for it. Now I am going to be home before dark like a normal job. I told my boss that I will cover some...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I am really annoyed with myself for not waiting to unmold. I really never have much of a hard time popping it out of the mold. It was being stubborn…i left it sit for about an hour more after loosening the sides, but i have to go to bed soon, so i forced the loaf out. The edges all stuck to the...

    Other hobbies.

    Its fun to follow patterns and see your work come to look like the pretty blanket in the picture. I have never kept anything that i crocheted, so i have nothing to show you lol. All this talk of crochet makes me want to start a new project. All I have is white yarn right now that i bought for a...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    I made a layered soap tonight. The top layer is an itp swirl. I might have done the swirl a little early, so i am predicting that it might be a little mottled. I hope not, but wont see till the cut. Impatiently waiting for it to set up a bit for a fingers crossed pretty top lol.

    Other hobbies.

    Your garden is beautiful. crochet is pretty simple once you learn how to get the first chain down, and maybe doing the second row. You can single crochet (sc) the entire project for learning…and it will still make something beautiful. Start out small with single crochet and then move on to more...

I’m...

    So i am sitting on the back porch and i hear thwap thwap thwap. I look over at the new house they built across the way and the new neighbor. Although it was pretty comical at first, watching a large grown man being scared out of his wits by a snake, I quickly realized that it was a harmless and...

    Will sodium Citrate prevent soap going rancid?

    Kinda glad this topic came up. I actually came on here today exactly for finding out how much citric acid to use in cp soap, so off to @DeeAnna website I go lol. I also need to rethink my curing spot I guess, cause while the dont receive direct sunlight, the room is very sunny just from the...

    DOS

    DOS is perplexing me. I don't have a huge amount of soaps with it, but I do have a few. Weird to me is that it is usually just one single bar in a batch. Of course not every batch, and to be honest its only about 5 bars that I have found it on. One batch I found two bars, but the other few it...

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    @earlene I can't shrink wrap 37 bars in a day with two good hands, I don't know how you do it lol. I do a few then its...this heat gun is heavy. My arms are tired. I need a break. Maybe it's because for me, it's the worst thing to do...which is why I have so many unwrapped soaps ready to sell...

    Anyone have a good slow-moving CP soap recipe?

    A while back I came here to find out why my batter was getting too thick to fast. There was a resounding "don't stick blend too much", which I adamantly assured everybody that I definitely was not. Well, I was LOL. I used the same exact recipe back then. What I was calling my nightmare, is now...
