It's been a while since I've told you, my followers, how very much I appreciate you! It humbles me and makes me smile to think that you would spend time visiting my blog. Thank you for being so wonderful!
I'm a dark chocolate person. Milk chocolate is okay. White chocolate just doesn't cut it for me. Fortunately there is something for everyone out there. There is even a confusing array of dark chocolates. I will be making an intensive study of them. :)

Do you see the gorgeous curls above? It isn't unusual for me to make chocolate curls for the top of a dessert. These, however, are not what they appear to be. C.S.Farmer was making his way through the kitchen to go back on the farm when he spotted the curls. He was reaching for them, as he often does with baked goods and treats. I'm glad I caught him in time. The curls were soap curls for making my home made laundry detergent. I have a post on how to make home made laundry detergent if you are interested. I owe C.S.Farmer some cookies after that!


  1. UH OH - a mouth full of bubbles but I can hardly blame him they look delicious!

  2. home made laundry detergent???? When do you find the time? My brain is now on overload trying to figure out when I could fit such a thing in.

    So glad you were able to catch C.S. Farmer in time.

  3. now I would love to make chocolate curls that look like that. I will look up your recipe. I was just thinking I need to get some soap made. I hope you are feeling better.
    I just got home from seeing Secretariat. When you get better, I hope you get to see it, I came home without a shred of makeup, I cried the whole time.
    I am so glad your husband didn't get a soap bite.

  4. I thought they were white chocolate! You continue to amaze me with your craftiness, Patrice.
    Don't forget to link up with Faithful Friday Followers if you have a chance.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. I don't even have the time to blog half the time. You amaze me with your creations. :) And I'll post a good picture of clyde up soon. He is being camera shy right now! Have a great day!

  6. I will be praying for your quick recovery. I will also be praying that you stay calm.
    So hard to be a Mom and be sick.
    I think Fridays are the best for all of the reasons you said.
    My mantra, "Rest without guilt."

  7. That would not have been a tasty treat! ;)

    Hope you can stop by my farm for a visit...and leave me a comment so I know you stopped by.

    Have a great weekend.

    I'm a dark chocolate person too. mmmmm..

  9. Now that really would have had him foaming at the mouth! (The wicked bit of me would have let him try them) LOL.

  10. LOL, my husband would have done the same thing too! I make my own laundry soap too, a lot like your recipe...I use the cheese grater for the soap and the one I use is a bright yellow so he hasn't been fooled yet. :-)

    P.S. There is NO other chocolate for me than dark chocolate....yumm!! Loved your blog, found you from the Friday Blog Hop!
