The silent killer. Last year my mother had breast cancer and I went through everything with her. The chemotherapy and the never ending radiology! It went on for over a year. Thank god she is a survivor. I guess what brought this to mind was the fact that a very nice lady who takes yoga with me is one of it's newest victims. She has had a lumpectomy today and thankfully the lymph nodes were negative for cancer. I hope and pray for her. She will win this battle because she is a warrior.
You never think it touches you until it does. Food for thought.
Send prayers to Pat!!! Thank you! Have a great day.

Peace and Love! Namaste.

A peek

Good morning all. Well, I couldn't resist and had a peek at my soap. It seems to have set really nicely but I'll still wait another day before slicing it and then, letting it cure for 4-6 weeks! This is some process. I think the finished product will make it worthwhile.

It's sunny and hot,hot,hot here in South Florida! Hope you're having a sunny day by you!

Peace and Love, Namaste!

Finally, soap from scratch!!!Yay!!!!!!!!!!

I took the plunge today. Yes I did. I was putting it off and of course I was afraid because there were so many steps to follow and I wanted this to be perfect!
It took me all afternoon and I'msure experienced soapers do this in an hour. Now, I just wrapped the baby in a towel to keep it warm and in a few hours I'll check on the progress.

These are my ingrediants; olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, castor oil, lye(sodium hydroxide) distilled water. I also added Lavender Essential Oil and some color.

I can't wait. I'll let you know what happens. Cross your fingers for me.

Peace and Love. Namaste!!

Over The Hill/Happy 4th of July

What happens when you hit fifty? I always told myself that it was just a number and wouldn't change anything in my life. What a rude awakening! I do feel it. I hate it. My body won't let me do some of the things it used to do. Is this for real? I'm slowly starting to accept and deal with the changes although I find it hard. Thank god for yoga helping me stay sane (if you can call me sane). Okay, breath, breath!

I finally received my shipment of oils etc. to make my first batch of soap. I just have a couple more items to get and I'll be off to the races. I guess that I'm what you could call "a procrastinater" it should be my middle name.

We were out walking the dogs this morning and it was only 7:30 and already so hot and muggy. This is when I miss Montreal.

Last but not least HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY ALL!!! I'm going to be doing some singing and deejaying at a small party(bbq). Hope you all have a great day. Let's celebrate our independance!!

Peace and Love. Namaste!!
