Some goings on….

I’m tired. This heat is just plain wrong. Yesterday I got in the car and the temp gauge said 108*. That is terrible! I’m not happy about that at all. Blech. Of course, when it’s about 50, I’ll be bitching about that, too.

We brought one of Chaos’ babies in for Jericho as a pet. Bucks make great pets, and so he named this one Mojo. I’m so happy with him. He’s loving living inside, and I think he’s adjusting well to being a pet. 🙂 He didn’t enjoy being picked up, but when he’s up there, he loves it.

Our bottle baby Harley had to be put down, her leg ended up being shattered and the surgery was over $4000 and we just don’t have that kind of money to be using on something like that.

I have a total of 12 chickens left, out of 22 and 3 ducks out of 6. Luckily, I still have one female duck. I still have 2 roosters and one is already trying to do his job….Wattles (she’s our favorite buff) is not impressed at all. She chases him around the coop.

This weekend, we are going to move the goats. Not too far, it’s just the area attached to their pen, where Princess (the cow) was while we were milking her. I’ve gotta run an extra wire to keep the buttheads in, and fence off Donna’s old truck so they cant climb on it. But, they will have a little more brush to eat, and some trees as well. They really aren’t liking the grass and I have to mow it once in a while. Of course, they’ll eat it after it’s mowed. But, it also lets me open up the area in front of the chicken coop and rabbit barn, so I don’t have to keep going in and out of the gate. Plus, it will give us a little more back yard.

I’ve also got to get the barn and coop cleaned out. The goats keep getting in to the coop and knocking things over. Drives me crazy!

I’ve made quite a bit of soap lately. I made one with a sister in mind, we call it butterfly kisses, and it’s gorgeous and smells so good. It’s a blend of apple blossoms, lilly of the valley (one of my favs!) and roses. I thought it was going to be too flowery, but it’s actually not. I’m pretty impressed. 🙂

Pretty soon, all the soap I’ve been making is going to be ready for sale! Plus, I have some new ones getting ready to be made. I’ve got a couple of basic recipes, but there is one I want to try, it’s a more luxury bar. I can’t wait to get it made! 🙂

What is your favorite soap scent?
