Homemade Bubble Bath, etc.

My acupuncture session was excellent, as always.  So relaxing!

I haven’t made soap in a while–no matter how beautiful the stuff is, one can only use/give away so much of it–and I have more than enough at the moment.

I did try my hand at making my own bubble bath, however–and the experiment was a grand success.  It’s a very simple process, at least the way I do it–I buy liquid soap base, heat it to 160 degrees, add color and scent, and funnel the finished product into a bottle.  Voila!  Bubble bath!  Now I can reuse the same bottles over and over, instead of filling up our local landfills with empties–that has always bothered me.  What with all this cooking, gardening, soapmaking, quilting, etc., I’m beginning to wonder if I’ve re-entered my Earth Mother phase.  :)  I was big into all that stuff in the seventies–I even did some macrame. 

I’m writing today–through the weekend, in fact.  I have a big seven-bone roast to cook for Wendy, Jeremy and the friends who will be visiting them from California.  I’m kind of on Mac and Cheese overload, but I’m planning to try Paula Deen’s recipe sooner or later.  I’ve also tabbed recipes for French onion soup and baked spaghetti and some kind of casserole with pesto. 

Tomorrow I’ll be writing a special blog, a tribute to my beloved editor, Joan Marlow Golan.  Don’t fret–she’s not gone, but she IS retiring, and I will miss her enormously.

Until then…

    Linda… you continue to amaze me! How do you get it all done and still sit down and write what I’m sure will be an amazing book?
    You make me feel like I should be out there cooking, baking and creating! But… I don’t have your talent or your drive… so I will just enjoy it vicariously through your delightful blog! :)

      See above. :) I have a rollicking case of ADD, and even on medication, I’m supercharged.

    You are a busy, busy lady. Don’t you often wonder, how our great grandparents did everything and they didn’t have any modern appliance the had to do everything by hand.They also visit family or people that were sick. It seems like people are to busy now days to do much of visiting!!! God bless everyone.
    As always your friend,
    Norma

      I really wonder how our ancestors survived as long as they did. No modern conveniences, cumbersome clothes, and short lifespans. Thank God they kept trying.

    So glad to hear you’re doing good Linda! I love reading your blog, it brings joy to my day. I was just wondering when and if anything was progressing with the McKettrick series movie?? I thought maybe Hallmark or AMC would be a good network or as a mini tv series like Into the West. I’ll continue to keep my fingers crossed :) Jess

      Thank you! There has been some recent interest in televising “Big Sky River”. I’ll keep you all updated.

    How many hours are in your day? The 24 I have are not enough to get done what I need to do, you are amazing! I am a big advocate for recycling too, what an awesome idea, thanks!
