Last December, my big project for winter break was supposed to be painting the floor of the soap room.  Well, I ended up living in there over break because of the furnace issues.

Leo, Sky, and Snickers

Then I was going to do it over spring break, but it was a bit chaotic with kidding and everything.

Since then, I’ve barely had a chance to get into the soap room.

But I’m milking again and I need to make cheese and I really have to get back out there and work.


I have been cleaning the floor and moving things from one side, and I’ve started painting!

Woo hoo!  I am honestly excited at how much easier it will be to keep clean.

I have one more coat on the second side, then it’s just putting everything back where it belongs. Obviously, I will still need to do some touch up under the cabinets also (maybe).

When the soap room is done, the milk room is next! That should be fun.

Again, it will be much easier to keep clean.  Right now, I can’t sweep it clean (and most of the little chunks are pieces of hoof from my trying to keep up with their feet in our wet weather).  Then, I need a concrete stoop outside the door to help keep out the mud and mosquitoes.

    You are the busiest person I know. So much to do and so little time. Excellent job on the upkeep and care of your farm. Would like to know how nugget is doing? She had so many problems.

      All the birds are doing well. Mama Phoenix was out enjoying a dust bath a couple of days ago and enjoys treats of worm whenever I find them. Her rooster, Nugget, is doing well, and he’s about the best rooster I’ve ever had.

    Your painting is looking great! Good job! How long has it been since it was last painted?
    Astra looks so cute, resting her chin on the railing.
    Have a good week!

      It had never been painted.
