Ugh, I had no business making soap tonight I have been chomping at the bit to try a new fragrance oil which we will be calling "Prairie Rose." I'm not a huge fan of rose scents but I like this one. The supplier reports slight acceleration, but my soap accelerated to thick mashed potato stage within minutes of adding the oil. I'm glad I wasn't using my slab mold because these would have been ugly bars. I glopped it into the molds and piped a ridge, sprinkled with glitter and I'm hoping for the best. At worst, I can rebatch into soap balls that should be pretty fragrant. I also made three gloppy cupcakes. Hopefully I can trim them up when the soap hardens and they'll look nice. Thank God for glitter.
Word of the day
Monday in the Octave of Easter
Saint(s) of the day : St Mark, Evangelist
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 28:8-15.
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went away quickly from the tomb, fearful yet overjoyed, and ran to announce the news to his disciples.
And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them. They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage.
Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me."
While they were going, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had happened.
They assembled with the elders and took counsel; then they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
telling them, "You are to say, 'His disciples came by night and stole him while we were asleep.'
And if this gets to the ears of the governor, we will satisfy (him) and keep you out of trouble."
The soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has circulated among the Jews to the present (day).
