It was so good to be able to see you and Hannah! It's funny that you survived two "lurkers" in one day. I had such a good time in Staunton, visiting you and my aunt and uncle. Please tell Sarah that the mocha fudge is amazing!!!! We are really enjoying it.

Blessings to you,



In spite of the pouring rain, it sounds like you guys did a great job!
How big are the samples from Hannah's soaps? Does she make special batches for them, or are they simply "leftovers"?


Yes, Bobbi, it was good to see your smiling face visit us on Saturday. Alice, the soap samples are usually end pieces of the logs of soap I make, thin slices less than ¼” thick. It’s a nice use for something otherwise wasted.

Thanks for the comments.


Hi Deb! The booth looks great; it's too bad the rain put a little damper on the sales. I'd love to try all the fudge and soaps - maybe someday when I'm in Virginia with time on my hands. I laughed and laughed when I read the titles of your "lurker" posts. That was hilarious, especially since my husband thinks meeting someone you "met" on the 'net is beyond bizarre. (Oh yeah, he's funny, too.) I think it's great because I know only nice folks would care to read such a nice blog. :)
Have a great day!


Some of the nicest people I have ever met, write blogs. :) Sorry to hear it rained upon your market. Hope next week is better.
Bobbi no longer qualifies as a lurker since she wrote a comment. :)

Hello Deb,

I used to read your blog regularly and then found that something in my life had to go, so I pretty much stopped reading blogs and browsing the internet. I've popped in periodically, but it's been quite awhile.

I have to say that you look great! At the risk of sounding rude (and I hope you know I'm not trying to be)have you been losing weight? I'm forever trying and rarely succeeding. :-}

I honestly had to look twice at your photo because I thought it was someone else!
I'll go read some of your other recent posts to "catch-up" with your family.

Blessings to you!
Michelle W.


All these market photos make me wish I were living in the area. I'd love to try some of that soap. Hmmm.... I wonder how many bars would fit in a flat rate envelope... :)
