As I Sit

here at my computer, daydreaming out the window, pondering the great mysteries of life, I notice a huge snowflake fall. Then another. And another. OMG!! It's snowing! And I really, really dislike snow. It's cold. It's wet. It's painful when you fall down, and you don't have any padding on the part you fall on. But the part I dislike most about snow in our part of the world is what it does to our driveway. It's steep, and shaped like a fish hook, and at the top, where it curves, doesn't get any sun during the winter. Also it seems that it has it's own ecosystem-it snows here before anywhere else in our area. It's that fish hook part that messes with us year after year; there are days my son can't get to school because we can't drive down (don't even ask about coming back home, up the hill!) to the bus stop. We plan our doctor's appointments around, in the hopes that the forecast is remotely close to accurate. Our life revolves around that part of the driveway in the winter.

But, next month an exciting thing happens-the first day of Spring!! And believe you me, I'll be ready for it. During these short days of cold snowy winter, I have been busy making soap, making our lotion base from scratch (it's so easy, my son can do it!) and making plenty of lip potions. Because, my friend, the first day of Spring I'm planning on doing a big celebration, the sale of sales. Out with the old winter scents and in with new floral, springy scents. Instead of using the thicker homemade lotion, we'll be making a fresh start with a new recipe for a homemade, made from scratch, lotion, one that's lighter, yet just as moisturizing. And lip potions are just plain good any time of year!

Keep an eye out-before you know it, there will be the first shoots of jonquils and violets peeping out of the ground, the wind won't be quite as bone-chilling, and you can dance your way over to our store to check our new stuff.
