Winter in the Pacific Northwest can be at times very dreary and gloomy. Sometimes we don't see the sun for days on end. But just once in a while it decides to come out and play and the wait is worth it. This is the view from the back of our house. It was so nice to be greeted with this amazing sight as soon as daylight approached. I am afraid not much was done at the front of the house on this day. I tried to stay on the back side as long as I could. It didn't last long though as we are right back to the gloomy's again.
We did manage to get out for a short walk over the weekend and spotted quite a few bald eagles along the way. Only this one was willing to sit for a bit so we could take his photo. He is an immature eagle and he still looks that scruffy brown color. It's not the greatest pic but hopefully as the weather gets better and we venture out more we will have lots of opportunity to take more pics.
I am patiently waiting for all of these lovely soaps to finish curing. We have about another week to go. I think that is the only thing about cold process soap making that I don't enjoy...the waiting. I am sure that most soap makers feel the same way. I can't be the only one...can I?
I have been racking my brains all day trying to decide what to have for dinner tonight. Some days I could just cook up a storm and other days I am at a loss. Wonder why that is? If I do try to cook when I don't feel like it then it quite always turns out not so great. It's the same with sewing and soap making too. When I am not feeling creative then it is best just to not do anything.
So I guess tonight we will have "ifits". Translated it means "if it's there then we will have it, if it's not then we won't"!
See you soon!
