Good. Random. Fun. Weekend

1 May

The Good:  Sunshine!  After so many rainy days this week and rain all day yesterday and today, I finally saw a bit of sunshine this evening.

Of course, it’s supposed to warm up and be sunny all week when I’m at work.

At least the days are longer, so I can hopefully get some stuff done in the evenings.

The Random:  My sister stopped by today and gave me a cup and saucer.  I think it’s an adorable set.

The Fun:  Today, I made three batches of soap because I almost ran out over the weekend.  Now they just need to cure for three weeks.

I also made my first batch of insect repellent lotion bars.  I almost want bug season to be here so I can try it.

Almost.

Today was a bit windy.  André’s ears and wattles were both blowing in the wind.

I made labels for my lotion.  It’s not perfect, but I can live with it.

I played with the image below to make it look more like a drawing.

I also have my labels done for the Smoky Patchouli soap, which is a new fragrance.  It’s been busy around here, but in a good way!

Spring Blossoms and a Surprise

17 Apr

I was worried about all my fruit trees with last week’s freeze warnings, but I’m more optimistic now.  The blossoms are just starting to open on the fruit trees. Here’s the cherry tree.

I actually have some peach blossoms this year, so I hope I get fruit from it again.  It’s been a couple of years.

The plum blossoms are a bit behind the other two.

Remember my poor apple tree that has been falling down for the last several years and the goats finally stripped the bark this spring.

Guess what!  It’s got leaves!

Not only does it have leaves, but it also has blossoms.
