Blog views galore! Over the summer, but especially in the last few weeks, I've noticed a distinct increase in the number of hits to my blog. I must honestly say that I have no idea why; perhaps I'm writing something that people want to read? Or maybe they've simply stumbled onto it wending their way to something better for all I know. And from all over the world, too! How humbling to think that people in gorgeous, far-flung locales paused long enough in their sophisticated, savoir faire exploits to read my occasional blathering. (If I were you, I'd be sightseeing or nibbling on local cuisine instead.) But many thanks!
Let's see....how can I wow all of you today? ....oh, the pressure of it all.....oooh, oooh....wait, I've got it!! And this should wow you, actually, because it's not about me.
This spring I participated in a soap making challenge, coordinated beautifully by Amy at Great Cakes Soapworks. At the end of the challenge, some of us swapped soaps with each other. I sent my favorite soap of the challenge to Kim of Honeydew Soap Shop. I love my soaps, of course, and a lot of people encourage me by their enjoyment of them, but to send soap to someone who knows soap, who formulates and tests and appreciates a good bar is a whole 'nuther matter. But she was nothing but kind....and she liked my soap!!
Now Kim, I must say, blew me away. I returned home from vacation to find a package with two mega bars of her challenge soaps. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Besides being beautifully packaged, the bars themselves are a work of art. Just look! They make my soap dish so colorful and they smell just divine.
So Kim, if you find the whole medical field thing just isn't doing it for you, might I suggest another career path for you? Let me know if you ever open your shop up to the public, and I'll be there. Thanks again! And thank you, Amy, for a fun challenge!
