It continues to be EXTREMELY cold here. Right now, the actual temp is -1, and windchills are hovering in the -20 degree range. COLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a great class Wednesday night - the weather was icky and super-cold, and yet everyone still came! Yay students! We had 15 students (kind of a small class for us, through the Des Moines Adult Ed program) and they were great! paid attention, asked great questions, and had tons of fun. We really like teaching classes because we always get to learn something, and the student's creativity is infectious. They always have a new scent blend or new idea that I NEVER would have thought of. And it's really fun to show people how easy it can be to create your own customzied herbal stuff.

Speaking of classes, we have our Hot Process Crock Pot soap class on Saturday. Karla (our soapmaker friend) is teaching it, so basically just have to get the classroom ready for her, and be around in case she needs us to get anything or help. So today, John and I will be spending some quality time in the classroom, getting it organized, rearranged, and ready for Saturday's class. And, most importantly, getting the room heated up!! We keep it pretty cool when we're not in there, so we'll have to bump up the heater before we even THINK about starting to work in there!

Wish I could get to some of those classes... maybe in May or June! Brrr, it sounds cold. It's been down around freezing here, must not seem like much to you guys.

Stay warm...stay inside...
