Made soap today. Whew! This one was a challenge. After I filled the molds, I waited for the rest of the batter to set up. Half an hour later I was still waiting for it to set up. I tried piping the cupcakes. It deflated on me so I scraped it all off of the cupcakes - scooped it back into the piping bag and tried again. What a mess. But after I unmold everything, I think it will look fine except for one anemic cupcake. I did this batch in Berry Pickin' because I am out of it.
I think I'm done making soap for a few days. I'm out of goat's milk and today's session really tired me out. LOL! Of course, tomorrow I will unmold it - it will be gorgeous - and I'll want to make soap again.
Word of the day:
Wednesday of the Fifth week of Easter
Saint(s) of the day : St Bede the Venerable, Priest and Doctor of the Church (673-735), St Gregory VII, Pope (c. 1013-1085)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 15:1-8.
I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower.
He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and everyone that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit.
You are already pruned because of the word that I spoke to you.
Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me.
I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing.
Anyone who does not remain in me will be thrown out like a branch and wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be burned.
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.
By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.
