This was a very good movie. There were a couple bits of fairly crappy acting from some minor characters but it was easy to overlook that. It kinda reminded me of the look and feel of Gone Baby Gone, which I also really liked. I don't even know what to say about it without giving it all away. Just...good movie, go rent it.
I made those Smelly Jelly Jars this morning. It was ridiculously easy, took about five minutes.
I think I didn't let the water/oil get hot enough. It said heat it 'just' to boiling and I pulled it off when first bubbles were starting but no actual boil activity happening. This might have kept the gelatin and salt from dissolving properly. I didn't use any food coloring in these. I think the Pear Spice fragrance oil gave it the yellow look. Does plain gelatin leave any color? Poured them in my former Glade candle holders and left them alone to firm up. Later in the afternoon I placed them in various spots throughout the house. They smell lovely! Hubby even commented when he stepped into the house this evening. I don't know if I'll make them again but it was a handy little way to use up the non-soap-safe fragrance oil.
Spent a good part of the day obsessing about soap, as usual. I've been browsing the fragrance oil sites and making mental wish lists. I've been chatting with a couple people about favored scents. I've been checking out other peoples websites and products. I was reading a 'start your small business' website. And all of it was making me crabby because I'm too impatient for this early stage of learning, practicing, perfecting.
*Tried* to finish reading my book today so I can move onto the borrowed philosophy book. Didn't get much done though because my mind is racing on other things. Gah!
So, blah blah blah whatever.....drawing a blank now, so I'll just go to bed.
