~~SOAP POCKETS AND JURY DUTY~~
When I peeked at my last post, it was a month ago!! I am so sorry to all my followers that I have not been around for that length of time. I promised myself to do much better in the future.
That being said, where have I been?
Well, for a little more than a week, I have been serving on jury duty.
You see, the law in AZ, or at least Maricopa county where we live, states that if you serve, it's two years before they can call you again. If you have been summoned, but released, it's 18 months before they can summons you. Man, time sure can fly by.
I was summoned what seems like yesterday, but the case was canceled (or settled out of court) and so I was not expecting this.
I honored my call to duty and quite frankly, I enjoyed it. I had never experienced the system before and it was all very interesting.
The case was a domestic abuse case and we found the defendent "not guilty." There was such a lack of evidence, we didn't understand why it was brought to court in the first place.
Anyway, without having to relive the whole ordeal, I served proudly and would proudly serve again.
The hardest part? Going into Phoenix daily and driving the I10 in commute traffic......UGH and UGH again.
I have found that my website was sorely lacking in a very popular item I have been creating, so getting back to my soap pockets, here is what I have been up too since my duty:
Four new pockets have been listed on my website as of yesterday.
I am in the process of creating more of my soap sachet pockets. These are different from the pockets above, as they are more of a bag, with ties at the sides and instead of a bar of soap, they hold a round Italian soap in the scent of Lily of the Valley and Orange. The bags should be on my website by the end of the week.
