So. Tired! - Random babblings of a fiber-obsessed nutcase

So. The family came by last night - at 9:30! - and bought Chip and Blackie. :Thank God!: We're down to 2 bucklings now - Oreo and Sheldon - and 1 doeling for sale. Not too bad!

Seems like it's "in" to have goats as pets. :scratching head: Not sure what's up with that, but hey - if it sells boy goats, I'm all for it. :lol:

Cut most of the soap....not sure what's going on. I mean, I know I used a little too much Castor Oil - but I know that that causes sticky, slightly slow to cure soap. I made 5 batches on Friday - same oils, same lye, same milk, same scale. The first batch is perfect - seriously, it's not even that sticky! The 2nd batch (Let it Goat) was slightly tacky, but not bad. I let the Patriotic Goat sit until yesterday....it is stickier than the other 2, but not totally off (hard to explain, but well within the realm of normal ). The Pina Goatlada? VERY soft, sticky, still oily. (Not as much as the fail batch, but still oozing a little oil). The Bay Rum - which was the 4th batch (the Pina Goatlada was the last one) - is going to explode oil when I cut it. The top is squishy, you can feel oil sloshing when you push on it, and the sides are so soft that I dinged them when I pulled the mold off. I'm letting it sit, but....it's another fail batch, methinks. Very, very weird.....I was very precise with my measurements (and I always am, but this time I was SUPER careful) because I wanted good soap, so I'm not sure what's going on here.

Ortho today..the kids are not looking forward to that. :lol:
