Today is the first day of my "staycation." Defined as time off work but not going away - staying home. Sometimes I like staycations better than vacations - sometimes. We seem to have a tendancy these days to work so hard building a beautiful home and a wonderfully peaceful homelife, that we don't have time to stay home and enjoy it. Don't get me wrong, I love visiting other cities and seeing things I might only see once in my lifetime, taking in other cultures and scenery. But, I'm also one of those people that just loves to stay home. It might be different if I were home all the time, then I would probably be jumping at the chance to get away. But not at this time, not this day. Plus, we get lots of visitors during the day when I would normally be away at work, and I hate missing good company. Look who came to visit today!
What about you? Do you prefer vacations or staycations? We would love to hear from you.
Here's hoping your soap always bubbles!
The Washtub Handmade Bath & Body http://www.thewashtub.net
We live in a quiet woodsy rural area out from a little town in Mississippi. Our love for the outdoors, nature, and the old ways of country living, led to the desire to start making soap. This desire soon turned into an obsession. Once we saw how the moisturizing properties of natural handmade soap reduced the need for lotions and other products, we were convinced we would never use anything else and wanted to share our discoveries with family and friends. Unfortunately we couldn't continue to give our little treasures away if we wanted to keep making more soap. Hence, The Washtub was born!
