Happy Husband

This is the face of a happy husband. You may be wondering what he is so happy about. It truly isn't anything outstanding from my point of view, but for him it is a grand moment in time. Yes, he has finally finished cleaning his shop. This is his domain...his sanctuary. Never mind the fact that there is a loving cat who hates the shop owner living in the shop. Never mind that with my sweet pussy cat comes a stinky box that sits in the corner of the shop. Even with this black ball of kitty fur, Michael's shop is clean. I bet it wont be long now that he will be starting back to work on my kitchen cabinets! A clean shop is a great place to work, work, work. Now it is my job to make sure that me and all the children do not pollute his sanctuary once again. Truth be told, I am the chief polluter of the shop. Whenever I do not have a place for an object, I tell a child to put it in Dad's shop. (The cat is a clear example of this habit). I am going to work harder on respecting his space, and keeping him a happy hubby.
We also spent some time this evening cutting our soap that we had made in early December. I think I am going to be very happy with it. We started cutting the soap on an old band saw. However, we quickly found out that a dry wall knife was a much easier tool for the job. We also found out that a tea bag box made a great soap mold. Our son helped cut soap, and he was very excited about our Luscious Lime Bar. He was ready to jump in the shower with a fresh bar of soap. I was very encouraged because this is the son that we have to push to take a shower. Perhaps things are looking up in this area.
grace and peace,

He does look content! Glad the soap turned out well.
How about a picture ? :)

Did you read the part about cutting it on a band saw??? It wasn't pretty!! The dry wall knife was the way to go. Thanks for the advice there. There will be no pictures of these poor looking batches of soap. But praise God, it washes just the same as if it were beautiful!!
