Blogging and Making Soap
He got up early and made a very nice wooden box for a soap mold. I will take pictures of it when I get my soap out.
In his day job he writes programs that monitor processes of water, oil, gasses, lots and lots of stuff. So what he does is make other people's jobs easier and safer and less time is wasted. I was melting the oils and he was keeping tabs on the temperature of the lye, when he told me that what we needed was " PID Feedback Loop."
I about fell down I was laughing so hard. I can't explain it but a simple one is that float in the back of your toilet that goes up and down when you flush the toilet.Because of what he does all day, he wanted to make soap so it would be less steps. Now though we have to wait to see if we made it or not. The digital soap thermometer is a great tool. Next time I think it would be easier. I always made soap by myself, it really is easier with two people. I still have my doubts that it will be soap.
My son had a piano recital and I wanted to share it in my blog. But that little box at the top of the page doesn't correct things when you misspell it . What I wrote as a title was My Son's Rectal. It should have been My Son's Recital. I kept staring at that that I couldn't spell either word. I published it and went to bed.
The next morning I go to my email box and there is a panic letter from my daughter. I laughed and laughed and even writing this out I still sit here and laugh.
My daughter was an editor for a long time. She knows more about correct grammar, spelling and sentence structure than I will ever know or even care to know. ( I can hear you nodding, Yes, Kim we know)
So I know there are lots of times she must scream early in the morning at what I have written. It just makes me laugh. I also have a son who enjoys that part of writing too and likes to be an editor so If I ever wrote anything for publication, I would be in good hands. :)
Thank you for stopping by today,
