I have been a soap freak this week.  Here is a peek at the Maple Syrup Festival soap.  I listed it on Etsy.  I'm not sure how long I'll stay with Etsy as the only thing I ever seem to sell is stockings.  Today I tried a new technique with a mold Harold made me out of PVC pipe.  I didn't use enough contrast in the colors so we shall see what we shall see.  I used part of the batch to make a soap loaf.  I think I need to rein it in and work on one new thing at a time.  For now I think that will be soap loaves.  I'll post those pics tomorrow.  In the mean time, here is a pic of the Maple Syrup Festival soap.  I'm really pleased that the lighter swirl showed up.  I wasn't sure it would.  It smells really nice.  The only problem is that I poured it at such a thin trace that ash formed.  I'll have to bring it to a thicker trace next time.

Word of the day:
Thursday of the Fifth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Scholastica, Abbess (+ c. 543)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 7:24-30.

From that place he went off to the district of Tyre. He entered a house and wanted no one to know about it, but he could not escape notice. Soon a woman whose daughter had an unclean spirit heard about him. She came and fell at his feet. The woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by birth, and she begged him to drive the demon out of her daughter. He said to her, "Let the children be fed first. For it is not right to take the food of the children and throw it to the dogs." She replied and said to him, "Lord, even the dogs under the table eat the children's scraps." Then he said to her, "For saying this, you may go. The demon has gone out of your daughter." When the woman went home, she found the child lying in bed and the demon gone.
