Petie called to say he was in Carson City at Costco - did we need anything, I said no, we're covered - we need you. Then he asked if I had anymore soap. He said everyone loved the bars he had gifted so he needed to buy more - did I have more. Yes, I have more soap but not wrapped in labels ready for sale. I hung up and got to work.
In making smaller batches of soap at a time, my soap cutters are leaving me with the last group of soaps too narrow for a bath bar. My son is going to adjust that when he's here this weekend, but I have a lot of extra little soaps.
I've saved old calendars so I decided to make some origami boxes and put the little pieces in and see if I can't move them that way.
The box on the right is from a Historical Nevada calendar. I forgot to take a picture of the finished boxes - they look pretty cool. I hope someone else thinks so. It would be nice to have these little soaps find a home.
Our first guest has arrived for the weekend. He and Ian met at com-
munity college, and now Petie is a retired professor turned banjo player who follows the blue grass festivals. He has chosen us over the Strawberry Festival - wow! We had a lovely quiet evening of visiting and just being together.
A cup full of friendship – and photos
