around here





good morning!

guess what?  i'm in a pretty good mood.  i started my walking routine a few days ago and i got back with my yoga practice last night.  i'm sore this morning but not too bad and it felt so natural to be doing yoga again.

in other news:
 that painting up there is by my boy ethan.  it was my christmas present.  i love it and the photo doesn't do it justice.

i made 10 pounds of olive oil soap recently as you can see up there.  i thought it wasn't setting right but I think it's turning out ok.  olive oil soap takes a long time to cure, or sit before you can use it.  I'll let it be for a month then try it out.

i've been doing some purifying with sage in the cabin (wack shack).  

last picture is of some handmade socks that are flipping unbelievable.  beautiful and soft.  i got them via a trade with a blog reader, emily.  she spun the white yarn at the toe and notice the perfect little cable running down the side.  i'm lucky.

Oh my goodness! walking, yoga, handmade soap... all on top of being a momma and keeping your store stocked. You are amazing.

That painting is uber beautiful!

...The painting is gorgeous - lucky you! He should have his own Etsy Shop. Just sayin'. ;o)

...And you go girl! I'm wanting to go for regular walks again like I used to so maybe you just might be the inspiration I need. Thanks for that. :o)
