Mom and Daddy arrived from Virginia yesterday afternoon. I exhaled when they got here. It's a long drive and I hold my breath until I see them in my driveway. Lily, my four-legged sister, accompanied them. She was glad to see me but not my kitty cats! She's afraid of them.
This morning, I got up early and made a batch of soap. This one, I'm calling Flower Power. It contains silk and coconut milk and is fragranced with one of my favorites - Herbal Essence. I made this in a slab mold with dividers so it made eighteen bars. They are out of the mold now and drying a bit before I add them to the curing rack.
Mom brought a pork roast - we fixed that for dinner plus vegetables and a pasta salad. We eat so much better when Mom and Daddy are here.
The sunset tonight was beautiful. Gorgeous horizontal bands of color. A beautiful finish to a beautiful day.
