I feel like a mad scientist!


All those visions we have of witches from the middle ages — Shakespeare’s ‘boil boil, toil and trouble…” — I know what they were about now.

Soap making!!!

Mr. TinFoil Hat and I made our first batch of castille soap the night before last; he was quite dubious but supportive of his wife’s zany ideas as usual.  And it turned out!  We now have 10 pounds of soap, 40 bars, curing in our back closet.  In another week or two I’ll smear some of them with essential oils of various types for scent and wrap them in plastic so they get nice and smelly before the holidays.
