Happenings in the Soap Room

8 May

The Good.  I have still been busy working on inventory for the soap room.  Of course, people keep buying things, so I never get ahead.  That’s a good thing!  I am still making candles.

I have some new fragrances too.

The Random.  Attached to the soap room, is the milk room.  I finally got this thing put in the wall.

I put a leash and collar on there.

Then I sneakily invite a goat in to snack on some corn, but it’s a trap!  I am working hard on getting caught up trimming hooves.  It’s much easier to do it in the soap room because I don’t have three wethers and Minnie rubbing their faces on my butt while I’m working on a goat, and Reva isn’t there trying to beat someone up while I have them tied and helpless.

The Fun.  It’s easy to get the goats to check out the milk room because I think Clover has been telling them that she gets to go in and eat corn while I milk her.  Whenever she hears me, she’s ready to come in and be milked, whether it’s time or not.

I am getting more milk from her than I can keep up with.  I still have full freezers from last year since I don’t have any real bottle kids.

I’ve frozen a lot in cubes for making soap.  I really need to buy another freezer.

I tried making yogurt, but my culture was old and didn’t work, so I have new culture ordered and scheduled to arrive Wednesday.  I might be living off yogurt then.  I also have ordered more bottles to put my lotion in, and they are supposed to arrive Monday.  In the meantime, I found a new use for my extra goat milk.

It would be a shame to let it go to waste.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt, I have the items listed at the top of my sidebar.

Sharing with The Good. The Random. The Fun., Macro Monday, Monday Mellow Yellows, and Shadow Shot Sunday.

    Your goats are such fun! I always chuckle at how smart they are. Of course our woofies are a couple of sites too! They always amaze me at how observant they are.

    Your candles are very pretty. The French vanilla one is such a pretty luminescent color!

    I like your idea for using the extra milk! Just be careful – you don’t want to drink too many of those!

      Oops! My Kindle made a booboo! That was supposed to read “our woofies are a couple of SMARTIES” !!!

      They are smart enough they can get into trouble! Without too much problem. No chance of too many drinks. One is all I can do before I want to just sleep. 🙂

    I know people feed goat milk to puppies. Can you sell it for that or does it still have to be pasteurized?

      I could sell it for animal use, but I would rather freeze it and make yogurt. I do give a lot to my neighbor, but her freezer broke down.

    You certainly have been working hard over the weekend. Soap and candles are looking good.

    Looks like a great way to use some of it up! Enjoy and have a wonderful week!

      I thought so! My culture for yogurt making will be here soon! That will be even better.

    The paragraph about tricking them to come in had me laughing. I love Clover’s smile – always ready! I think you’ve got a pretty good solution for that extra milk.

      And I’m making yogurt now too!
