Still Busy

3 Aug

I never seem to find enough time to get things done around here.  I just learned the date for the August market that they are doing in State Center.  I’m going to try to get some of the totes made to take and sell.  I’ve gotten a start.

I also decided to put pockets inside some of them.

I have a big stack ready to be turned into totes on my dining room table.

My sister also brought me a couple of new ones–pig and all flock!

I’m still making soaps.  I did another five batches:  Moonlight Pomegranate, Full Moon, Kentish Rain, Fresh Linen, and Fierce.

I still have another nine batches I want to make.  Of course, these will have to cure, so they won’t be ready until the one market in September.

I still have other crafty projects that I wanted to try, but I’m pretty sure they won’t happen this summer.  I have gourds to craft with and llama fleece to do something with.  But there just isn’t time between scooping buildings, regular chores and those extras that seem to be filling my days right now.  I’m still giving Aurora extra feed.

Dolly is also getting extra care yet.  Her eyes are still pure white, so I did give her another gram of copper.  I was afraid to wait.  Hopefully, that will start helping her.

Dolly

Just to make it more fun, Dolly busted out (okay, she snuck through the panel where I had to cut Annie out last year) and went to pasture all yesterday.  Poor girl was exhausted when she got back, and the tight, tight skin on her overly full udder had popped–not what she needed.

I have her shut back in now, and I did half milk her out to keep it from rubbing anynmore.  I guess this might start to explain how time goes so quickly.

      The sewing is a nice break from scooping manure. 😉 And I’ve made sure I take time to do some reading each evening too. That’s nice and relaxing.

    Poor Dolly!! I hope she improves very soon.
    I think your bags are really cute! And by the way, I did show them to my daughter, regardless of what I said!
    Make sure you get enough rest…

      I am so happy to report that Dolly’s tongue is no longer white; and if I look closely, I can see a hint of pink in those eye membranes. I think the gram of copper is going to pull her through.

        Ignore my other post heh I’m glad to see she is doing better. 😁

        She did get the extra gram, and she continues to improve. It was ten years of getting this depleted, so I know it will take a while to recover.

    Wow, how do you do it all.

      I don’t like being still (unless I have a good book).
