Taking care of business

We'll be driving off to Ontario in a few days. We're going to a family reunion up on Lake Huron. I love the change of pace of this travel but dislike what the long drive does to me. It's a weird sense of travel lag, not unlike jet lag. We often leave in the middle of the night, so there's a sense of exhaustion that takes a while to get over. I have a couple of books (Tales of the City, Plenty, Olive Farm, plus some books for the committee I am a member of). I'll bring some knitting too. I plan to sit by the water with my ipod and relax.

My mom has been selling my bags at my parent's business, which has gone really well. 2 bags sold within the first day, and I have a few more to send over. Now a local cafe owner would like to sell some. Their biggest market is a small environmental college, which fits with the things I create. I've been experimenting with felted soaps too. In some ways I feel like the knitting itself isn't the best, but the more I knit, the better I get. Or maybe that's my perfectionism creeping in.

That is great. I have really enjoyed my purse. What are felted soaps?
