FOR TODAY … 19 September 2010

Outside My Window…It’s 10:00 pm at night…dark. I see my neighbor’s kitchen light on.

I am thinking… IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME that the team backed Barry Zito up with some runs! Goodness sakes! The poor guy hasn’t won a game since mid-July! Awesome game! ~~~~ The batch of Oatmeal Milk & Honey cold processed soap sure took a long time to trace! Holy Smokes…almost an hour! And I still didn’t get a 100% trace before my arm gave out. Cross your fingers! ~~~~ I can’t believe that my Bills LOST AGAIN! ACK! Sorta funny…my baseball team is the San Francisco Giants…my football team is the Buffalo Bills…and my hockey team is the Detroit Red Wings. ~~~~ Don’t ask…it beats me!

I am thankful for… that I have a day off on Monday…even if it’s a Furlough day and I won’t get paid for it.

From the kitchen… Pizza….and soap. :) One batch of soap down…three more to go.

I am wearing… Shorts, my painting/soap making t-shirt that should probably be thrown away, barefoot, hair up and it’s a right frightful mess! Am trying to grow my bangs out and they’re at the shaggy dog stage.

I am creating… Soap. Oatmeal Milk and Honey is finished. I have Lavender, Autumn Fir, and something called Mayan Gold…all I can say is it would make a man yummy smelling.

I am going… check my soap calculations one more time to see if I need to increase the lye/water ratio in my recipe. I really don’t want to have to stir for an hour again.

I am reading… Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid…only a couple more pages to go. Am not really sure why they say Haven is based off of the book, so far I can only guess it’s the two old newspaper dudes that the book and tv show has in common.

I am hoping… that the Giants have a safe flight to Chicago and have a great series on the road. That my order from Brambleberry comes in soon so I can make soap with my niece. I decided to get a melt and pour soap for her first time…10 years old is just too young to help me make soap with lye.

I am hearing… the college girls move out in the front part of the duplex that I live in. Can I get an AMEN!?! Banging, slamming, yelling, squealing…hmmmmm…hopefully those are moving sounds I’m hearing. Sheesh…I’m starting to think that they’re thrashing the place!

Around the house… clean sheets on the bed, laundry done, floors vacuumed. TV on with Masterpiece Mystery…Inspector Lewis, Series III.

One of my favorite things… Still the ocean….will always be the ocean. Anyone know of any job openings in San Francisco?

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Monday is a busy day of soap making…need to use my 50% off Michaels coupons, great for a quick pickup of soy wax.

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you…

Oh Say Can You See...

Take Me Out To The Ball Game
