Of course, I am up early on the one day of the week I can sleep in. But it's always like that on the morning after I make soap. I can't wait to get up and see how it turned out. As I mentioned in my last post, I made a batch of Maple Syrup Festival.

I am in the process of standardizing my procedures and my part of the inventory. I've gone off into too many directions. Last winter I got caught up in the world of YouTube and saw so many things I wanted to try, one of them being cupcakes. I have mixed feelings about the cupcakes. I love to make them, but I am constantly hearing, 
"It's too pretty to use. I'm just going to set it out in my bathroom."
The soapmaker in me cringes because it is a total waste of wonderful soap not to use it. I am seriously considering dropping it from our line and only doing them for special orders.

Yesterday I started working on the bins in my dungeon workroom.  I am hoping that Harold and Howard will make me that PVC pipe thngy.  I went down to count my bins and I have way too many.  I did some weeding and sorting.   And, as is always the case, for now the dungeon looks worse than before.  But I am determined to get it organized this year.

Word of the day:
Saturday of the First week in Ordinary Time
Saint(s) of the day : Bl. Peter Donders, Priest (1809-1887), St. Sava, Abbot and patron of Serbia (+ 1255)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 2:13-17

Jesus went out along the sea. All the crowd came to him and he taught them.
As he passed by, he saw Levi, son of Alphaeus, sitting at the customs post. He said to him, "Follow me." And he got up and followed him.
While he was at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners sat with Jesus and his disciples; for there were many who followed him.
Some scribes who were Pharisees saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors and said to his disciples, "Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?"
Jesus heard this and said to them (that), "Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners."

Pretty maple leaf soaps! I know how you feel about the cupcakes. I've dropped them from my line. They are eye-catching and always get attention, but purchases were rare. And they get bumped and damaged easily. It's too bad, because I love to make them.
