I Doubt The Weather Channel

It's supposed to dump snow all over Colorado's front range tonight.

I'll believe it when I see it.

In the meantime, I'm going to the library and stocking up on hot chocolate fixin's. On second thought, maybe I'll forget about the hot chocolate just so Mother Nature has a reason to snowbind me.

What I Made:

Soap. I created a recipe (there's thousands on line--I didn't actually use just one), bought the caustic chemical and set my little organic chemistry lab in action. It was fun, but a little intimidating to mess around with lye (NaOH for you other nerds out there).

I'll take pics when it's done curing. Right now it looks and feels like bricks of soft butter.

  1. Fingers crossed. We need some moisture already.

    I'm having trouble getting my hopes up.

  2. I can't wait to see your soap creations! I am hoping to try my own hand at it this summer. I have ideas building up in my head...
