What's on Your List Today?

I feel like an industrious busy beaver...I made one batch of Strawberry freezer jam last night and I made my very first batch of soap...that was an experience, but thanks to my good friend Lanita, I am less freaked out than I was. I am making Goat's Milk soap and I expected a nice milky colored soap, so it was a shock when it turned BRIGHT YELLOW. After adding all of the fats, it toned down to the color of baby poo...I am hoping as it SAPONIFIES that it will tone down some more.
So in a bit, I need to run to the store to get some more pectin for another batch of freezer jam...we are ALL OUT (well except for the kiwi jam that no one likes...), then I need to get dinner made so it can be popped into the oven before I get home later...AND we have about a bajillion loads of laundry to get done...
I think I will make a coffee mix first and then get busy...
What's on YOUR list today?

Where are you getting your strawberries for jam? I want to make strawberry jam this year.

You're inspiring, Carrie! I need to make some more jam but have been very lazy about it. I also need to get to the store for some flour because I just realized that Azure won't be delivering for a while and I'm all out - so baking is being delayed. I've just been messing around all day long!!!

I'm excited about your soap adventures. Soap making is something that I really want to learn to do.
