Word of the Day: Onto
I really wanted to focus my thoughts onto my blog while I was in the bath, but I didn’t. I got sidetracked by focusing my thoughts onto … soap. Why I would focus on soap while in the bath is beyond me, but there you go.
I was thinking about how I popped onto Amazon over the weekend to check out different colors of minerals I could use in my soaps. So many colors! My imagination hopped from one idea onto the next, this color onto that color and would that be pretty or yucky looking? My brain was awhirl. I realized that allowing my mind to move it’s focus onto soaping really soothed me after the earlier stresses of that day. I played with several different recipes in SoapCalc, to see how they might potentially turn out. I even printed up a few to add onto my growing soap recipe file.
Generally, I’m not known as a creative type. I can’t draw, can’t paint, can’t sing, can’t write stories. I can plant a decent garden though, and that’s had to suffice as far as creativity goes. But this thing with soaping, I’m wondering if I’ve finally stumbled onto my creative outlet, after all these years. The beauty of it, unlike gardening, is that you can do it year round in colder climates. And, it’s calorie free, unlike baking.
I recognize that I’m a novice at this, and that I have a very long way to go before I’m any good at it, but right now, I’m enjoying it. A lot.
