Soaping

28 Jul

I have to say, it’s just the last week or so that I’ve started relaxing and feeling like I’m on summer break (and now it’s almost time to go back).  With the bottle kids getting weaned, I’m getting to keep all my milk from the girls.  They know exactly where to go.

I always have a line waiting to come in.  There’s usually a couple more there too.  Sometimes even those that are not currently getting milked (like Haley).  Once I even had Casey trying to convince me he should get to come in.

Sometimes Ava gets a little impatient.

I’m freezing gallons for next year’s kids.  Also, I finally have gotten around to making soap.

I have several that are out of stock.  I don’t know the last time my shelves were so empty.

It’s been hard to get motivated to make any when the farmer’s market I used to go to isn’t being held now.  I need to find a new market or something.  Of course, when my garage is fully cleaned again, I can open on the farm on weekends.  First, I need to get everything back in stock.  I made five batches to start with: violet, almond biscotti, plain, lilac, and candy.

I have another thirteen batches before my soaps are fully stocked.  I better get busy!

Catch Up

1 Jul

There was a week or so that was so crazy busy I haven’t had time to just post pretty stuff.  So today’s post is just a catch up.

Milking

15 May

Despite finding out what is wrong with my kids and being able to treat it, there’s nothing I can do for the kids who have already had neurological damage.  That means I had to have Clover’s babies put down.

Now I’m milking again.

I was surprised how much milk Clover had because she didn’t have hardly any when the kids were born.

Of course, since I’m milking, Cinnamon decided she was going to be milked also.

Athena was not quite as happy about that.

But she’ll be fine, and I’m probably going to need that milk for June kids.
