Saturday Evening’s Storm

26 Apr

Well, we had another round of storms Saturday evening.  When I came in from doing chores, I saw that there was a tornado warning about one county over and heading towards me.  So I gathered up the cats and dog and headed to the soap room.

Really, Bob? That is not where you belong.

I also managed to get the car put in the garage.  I might have threatened Venus if she jumped on it because I caught her on the freezer in the garage earlier in the day (no re-creation for a photo).

Venus and Aphrodite were not happy with losing all that space to my car.

I went to make sure the kids all came up from pasture.  As I headed back to the soap room, the rain started.

The edge of the storm reaching us.

But in the time I took getting everyone in, the storm had died down a little bit.  I was sandwiched between severe storms.  It did rain a lot.

We just chilled for a bit.  I had nothing to do but play with taking pictures of the animals.

I still have the mattress out there from the last storm and checking Aphrodite.

Sky finally found a big enough bed

Rocky was the hardest to catch and bring out, but he was the most chill out there

That is not any better Bob–that’s a llama wool rug for sale.

I have no idea what Tiger was doing while everyone else was chilling.

Then I took everyone back to the house.  Well, except Bob. He decided he wanted to stay outside.

After the first round of rain.

That’s when they issued a severe warning for my area.

But we all made it through the night safely, even though Bob was rather wet when he finally came in the house.

The Last Weekend

15 Dec

Coming up will be the last weekend I’m open in the soap room before Christmas.  We’ve been working hard to keep it stocked.

New tote bags plus restocking the goat feed totes.

Mom brought out some painted goose eggs that she hadn’t brought before, and she made more snowman goose egg ornaments.

I got around to making goat milk lotion.  I guess that’s another good way to use up my goat milk.

By the end of the weekend, I had made six different scents.

Honestly, we are so full in the soap room that I can’t find a place to set my cup of coffee out there.

Heading out to the soap room with my cup of coffee to get to work.

And I’m already thinking about later this spring and even next Christmas season.

Saturday in the Soap Room

5 Dec

It was nice to be in the soap room Saturday.

I’ve missed being open and seeing people.

Of course, where I’m at in the middle of nowhere, any day you have one person stop in is a good day.

I have “Dolly” playing cards!

Saturday was a good day!

I think I’m going to keep opening up on Saturdays through Christmas.

After that, I’ll probably try to be open one weekend per month.

I will admit that it did make it a bit challenging to try to make yogurt Saturday evening.

Dishes too.

I’m also going to whine about breaking my crock pot.

It was a stupid thing (not letting it cool enough before setting it in the water) and I’m annoyed with myself.
