Climate Change

In some parts of the country, the change from summer to fall to winter is a gradual, lovely affair that can be cherished for a few weeks. Here in northern Nevada, it seems more like summer crashing into winter. As September clicks away into October outdoor temperatures drop like a rock.

You out there, you with significant others may have the same seasonal convo as we do around our house. I'm one for energy conservation, not to mention sub-doer of humongo gas/electric bills. In summer, I figure we can servive at 77'C, in the winter 70'C should be fine....granted you might have to put socks and long sleeve shirt on. But every year my husband and I do the thermostat war. After a week of haggling the numbers up and down, up and down, we generally come to the settle at a happy 73'C...or 74'C.  Does this happen to you? : )

Living quarter temps aside, I've been patiently turning and gazing upon my little pumpkin soap that I made a month ago and it is finally FINALLY, ready for everyone to see. I'll be posting several on my shop page today. But also will be putting together several for a craft bazaar at our local junior high school. I figured this is the way to go. People need to be able to touch and smell picture can replace tactile experience. I'd consider hooking up with an experienced craft fair seller and striking a deal. Absolutely awesome exposure.


  1. My husband and I are the same, except he is always too warm and I am always too cold. Luckily, it doesn't take much to heat our little flat and we really only have to have the heating on for about half an hour to keep it warm enough :)

  2. I know! We only have two seasons here...summer and winter!
    I have always wanted to try a craft fair. I haven't heard of the one going on at the junior high. Is this the first year that they are having it? Wonder if they get a lot of people? Sounds like fun!

  3. Glad I'm not alone...I think that no matter where you live, that if there's more than one person, you're gonna have temp problems! ; ) The craft fair thing is on November 14th. A gal at work that does felted purses told me about it and invited me to bring my soaps. I think it was in the free mailbox flier on Wednesday. ; )

  4. Will you be setting up a table? That would be too cool!
