Sotto voce

Or notta voce?  I basically can't talk because of my chest cold.  Saves me the bother of answering the phone!

The mini cupcake bath bombs seem to have turned out, but I'll have to test one of them to be sure.  The mini lotion bars are great.  I'm wondering if I should do a bath tea bag, and just call it spa in a bag for Christmas...

I made a few more lip balms because I'm on my last one, and with the dryness I really need it.  At least testing all these unguents is moisturizing my hands.

I started the owl cowl for my brother, so we'll see how that goes.  It may end up being too big, but he is very tall.  Positive thoughts!  The tosh vintage is great stuff to work with - I'd love to get more.

I made bread yesterday, but the crust came out too thick.  I think that's due to a too-cold second rise, or maybe not enough moisture in the oven.  It tasted okay, but it was too crusty.  It would have made great bruschetta or toasts with cheese.  Hmmm...that sounds delish...maybe some cheese toasts are in my future!

I have an idea for DP for Christmas - since we're not giving each other real presents, I can be creative.  I have a little photo album, and I think I'm going to try to concoct a mini wedding album.  Our pictures didn't really turn out, but I think there are enough good ones to make something.  I also have pics from our honeymoon, which will be nice.  When he goes off to his meeting tonight, I think I'll tackle it.

I've been trying to work on being more thoughtful toward him and put more effort into things.  I want to make sure he knows he's loved!
