Discussion: Finding a formula is just the beginning of the process…

I think most of us are thinking back to the year we had, and I thought I’d share some of the random thoughts, epiphanies, and rants I’ve enjoyed in 2018. I hope you’ll share your thoughts on some of these topics or add a few more of your own!  Over the last year I’ve seen…...

Welcome to March!

Wow, how is it March already? I completely forgot February was a short month, so I was surprised when I saw it was the first today. (In my defence, I am full of various pain killers and muscle relaxants, and I’ve only just realized the calendar in our bedroom still says January.) As a note,…...

A few thoughts and a digest of posts February 7th to February 11th, 2018

I’m sorry I haven’t written more this week, but my lower back/hip has been killing me, making it hard to sit up or even balance my laptop on my knees in bed. I had to cancel at class at Voyageur Soap & Candle yesterday as I can’t stand for long periods of time, which was…...

Digest of posts February 2nd to February 6th, 2018

I’m having such great fun sharing those things I’ve learned falling down rabbit holes as I research some of the questions you’ve posed or ingredients I’ve found.

Weekly digest of posts January 14th to January 19, 2018
