No Soap Molds

This weekend was a very busy family weekend and I never got to Home Depot for caulk and I couldn't find a good make shift wooden drawer or box at either garage sale I went to.  So my plans to make the lined soap mold with silicone caulk fell by the wayside.

It was HOT this weekend, with temperatures hitting 95 degrees with a million percent humidity. South Florida is experiencing a drought and half the lawns in my town, Tequesta, are brown and flowering bushes look sad and empty.  The moisture in the air is just teasing the plants heartlessly.  I think the last time it rained here was well over a month ago, maybe two.

It is hysterical that the motor in our water pump for the sprinkler system blew out just as it stopped raining, so my poor husband has to run around with the three sprinklers to saturate each section of our property every few days.  (We are only allowed to water two days a week: Thursday and Saturday from 4pm - midnight).  Mandatory drought restrictions.

I have reviews to do on Lori's soap (THe NOva Studio), but this will have to wait until tomorrow, as I just don't have it in me to write something eloquent this morning.

Sorry to hear its so miserable there. I'm not a fan of humidity...believe it or not, Michigan can get horribly humid too. = (

I like the garage sale wooden box idea. I was a little nervous about caulking my wood molds. They are cleaning out a foreclosure down the block and have a huge dumpster in the driveway. Maybe I should do some dumpster diving for a wood box ;-)

Sorry to here about your soap mold issue. It has been hot here in Georgia. We have the same issue with the drought here as well. Just when I want to start planting my little flowers again, we have to conserve water. I hope this drought situation changes soon.

Wish I could send some rain your way. The road we usually take to go to town has been flooded, on and off, for a while now due to excessive rains this past winter/spring. The weather...never predictable or evenly spread out.
