Sunny soap with cocoa butter

I couldn't think of a suitable name for my latest batch of soap but thought I had better write down the ingredients I used before I lost the piece of paper I had it written on. Not a good habit to get into when soapmaking as it really is better to keep a notebook or to write a post about it straight away but birthday celebrations got in the way and I didn't get round to it.

Another decade

Dear me, I just started writing this post and somehow it has been published already. I am sure I didn't press the publish button. Oh well!

Please help our farmers

Our Aussie farmers are a tough and resilient lot. Probably like farmers the world over. They are at the mercy of the weather, the markets and our all powerful supermarkets for starters. They are used to dealing with drought but this current drought is just crippling them and they need our help. They will never ask for it but too many of them are suffering in silence and many are taking their own lives unless organisations like Aussie Helpers gets alongside them and shows them that they are not alone and that people around our huge country are thinking of them and wanting to help.

The end of another month

It is hard to believe that we are almost at the end of July. Only five months till Christmas. LOL! I am sure nobody needed to be reminded about that fact. We have had a number of really warm days and it was actually 25C a couple of days ago and almost too hot to be out in the garden.

Once again ~ Good Onya, ONYA!

Last August I wrote a post called Good Onya, ONYA and I must repeat myself again as I have recently come across some new to me products that are now available. At the time of writing that post last year the War on Waste series had been showing on the ABC and last night the War on Waste: The Battle Continues commenced and it was equally as shocking and motivating.  We had a War on Waste workshop in August last year and, if anyone is interested, Margy has notes with links on the Simple Living Toowoomba website about zero waste, reusable coffee cups etc.
