Summer is definitely over. All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey. The winds have blown almost all the leaves off the trees. Only the most stubborn of those remain. The gardens are looking like a feel. Spent, dry, and all used up. I don't mean to be a real bummer, but I have been feeling depressed and uninspired lately.
I started the year with high hopes, looking forward to a great... continueCategory: Shop Talk Our Products I'm just sayin... Good green stuff!

Yesterday was a perfect central Minnesota summer day, the kind of day I love the most when I had no where I needed to go. I did not need to start the car to get in a full days work, I just walked out to my shop to make some powdered laundry soap! My shop door is about 20 steps from my little house on the lake, and a great place to spend the day!
On the top... continueCategory: Shop Talk Our Products I'm just sayin... Good green stuff!

I have not posted a blog for a while. I recently took an unexpected trip to Oregon when I got a call that my father was very ill and had just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This came as a shock to me since I had been there visiting only a couple of weeks before and my father (though he had some health issues concerning his heart for which he was monitored) seemed his same 80 year old... continueCategory: Shop Talk Our Products I'm just sayin...

It has been a while since I have posted my last blog. I have been very busy after my Oregon trip getting ready for the expo and the beginning of the market season. I have had a couple of great season opening weekends and am looking forward to setting a steady pace through the summer and fall.
After the Expo my shop was in total chaos...kind of looked like a bomb went off... And the shelves... continueCategory: Shop Talk Our Products I'm just sayin... Good green stuff!

Well, I'm back in beautiful Minnesota. I had a great time with my family in the Pacific Northwest, and I miss them all already, but it's time to get back to work and get prepared for the upcoming Living Green Expo and Farmer's Markets. But before I do that I needed to spend my first evening back with my husband Jim and tell him all about my trip, and show him the pictures and videos I took. We... continueCategory: Shop Talk Our Products I'm just sayin... Good green stuff!

I have been in Oregon for over a week now having a great time with my family. In a few more days I will be headed back to Minnesota with new inspiration that will keep me going through the busy market season. We all need something to keep us working hard, so I thought I would share a little today about the children in my life who do that for me...my grandchildren! They are a big reason why I... continueCategory: Shop Talk Our Products I'm just sayin... Good green stuff!

It's a gorgeous spring morning. Perfect to spend some time in the shop. I love it in here, it's open and bright and it always smells good! This morning I need to bottle up a batch of dishwashing liquid. I started this batch a week ago. It has been sitting in a tub curing. Absorbing the pure essential oils I added after the cooking, cooling and blending I did the day before. It takes a while... continueCategory: Shop Talk Our Products I'm just sayin...

Well here it is, finally! We have been working since new years on getting this new website up and running, and today is the day! I hope you like how it looks and that you find it easy to navigate.
It was my new year resolution to blog at least every week. It has taken this long to design a site that gives me a place to do it! I suppose taking a 2 week vacation to Mexico in the middle of the... continueCategory: Shop Talk Our Products I'm just sayin... Good green stuff!
