Previous Entry 22* Jan. 12th, 2011 @ 06:18 am Next Entry
Need I say more? I know you Northerners are laughing at me right now, but Damn! It's not supposed to get THAT COLD here! I mean, I know I roll my eyes at y'all complaining about your 100* summers, and how y'all are melting - that ain't hot! Let me show you our August - 110* is normal! But....it's not supposed to get down to 22*! That's too cold!!! /whine

I'm glad I ordered a mold......got home last night and my loverly puppy presented me (quite happily, I must add) with *2* freshly-killed craft foam liners. Apparently, foam-covered-with-duct-tape tastes divine, especially when there's a trace of fresh soap in them. :sigh: At least I know her mouth's clean! (And this further proves my point on not borrowing stuff right now. :sigh:) I put in an order for 2 Uplands - they won't charge me until they ship them out mid-February, so I figured I'd better get the order in now. This gives me 3 molds, all the same size. (Once they get here, of course. :lol:) I've got to figure out someplace to put them - right now, all my soaping stuff is in a large Sterilite container in the kitchen. The molds/liners are kept in the over-large styrofoam chest, on top of the container. The 2 killed liners were on top of the chest, waiting for me to get around to washing them out. I think I'll have to figure out if all 3 15" molds will fit in the chest.....

I'm gonna go sit in front of the woodstove until time to leave. I need to make sure my hair is perfectly dry...and the stove is nice and warm!

It is TOO cold here also.
In the 20's and C'mon - I am in Southern CALIFORNIA folks.
But sinc etoday is my birthday my hubby told me I could do some soap shopping - and I am wondering do I need to get the Annie Watson "smart soapmaking book? Or could I get by with the milk one alone?

I think you could get by with the milk one only, but I'd recommend you get both, if possible. Check eBay...:lol: I think I scored mine for $5 each (or less).

Oh - and Happy Birthday!!!

I'd die for that temp right now, it would be a heat wave in our area, when we were feeding the cows this morning, fixing fence and chopping ice in the tanks, the temps were -19.

It's suppose to drop down to -25 tonight and then be in the low 20's tomorrow.

I'm in Nebraska, not sure if I'm considered a Northerner or not.
