soap-making take 2 (and other stuff)

tomorrow i’m going to try the hot-process soap-making process. it involves cooking the soap in a crockpot for a while, and since i got a crockpot at a garage sale for $1.50, i think i’ll give it a go.

i went for a walk tonight, and it was just the right time to catch the fireflies blinking in the woods and then along the edge of the cornfield. i took everything in me to just look at them and not run around like a goofball and catch a couple. 

i made a couple galettes tonight, one for me and one for my dad. unfortunately, galettes are messy business, and the juice from the berries spilled off the cookie sheet and onto the bottom of the oven. i’m cleaning the oven right now and it’s certainly stinky. also, the blackberries in the galettes are kind of gross. πŸ˜› (otherwise, they’re delicious.)

tomorrow i’m going to do my best to get to the farmers’ market in rochester. i say do my best only because if my body wants to sleep until 11:30, i will let it. i am so short on sleep lately it’s not even funny. however, if i do wake up at a reasonable time, i’m looking forward to some market time!
