A Beautiful Day
….and random moments of pleasure….
The sun is shining bright today and it’s rather deceiving. When I ventured out the care for the animals for the morning the cold went right through me and the wind is something else today.
I’m glad I took the time to shovel more snow on the flower beds, strawberries and rhubarb a few days ago. This wind and cold
with no snow is hard on them.
We have a new older gentleman staying with us for a few weeks. He is a sweetie and adds lots of laughter to the house.
I had some time to finish up some more soap…I was in the mood for cheese cake so these will do for now. They are Lavender and Rose. Turned out quite nice. I have but 2 left out of 12, they like so much of the soap I make flew out the door almost before I had time to wrap and label it.
How about cupcake style soaps, the same as the Lavender and Rose only smaller and very cute. One of these made it into the tub with Daisy and she loves is. I must admit it smells pretty darn good… and cute too boot!
I started working on some new knit slippers for me in a nice navy blue cotton yarn. Not a bad pattern I like it. I made a pair a few weeks ago and they ended up way to large for me using the needles the pattern called for so I am using much smaller ones this time, lets see how they turn out.
Daisy has 2 new pair of slippers I knit her and she likes them. I have plans on adding a wool cut out flower on the front for her but she took off wearing them before I got the wool cut…
Hope your day is going as well.
