Busy, busy...

Let's see......Friday I cleaned the barn. :boo: It needed it, though - and the girls are MUCH happier.

Saturday: Fasted. Mostly. Had a glass of milk for breakfast, but by 1 I had the start of a migraine and was super dizzy. Had 1 piece of bread with a wee bit of peanut butter - helped with the dizzies, but not the headache. Had to take 2 Ibuprofen (and I'm still allergic, huzzah!) with milk. Made it to 6:45 - we declared it close enough, and ran out to eat. Since the food didn't come until 7:30, it WAS sundown, so that was OK.

I was reading my Feasts book last lots of thoughts. Need to get them in order....but it's interesting, connecting the dots.

Today: Have 4 new soap molds in process (I cut the first one out; SG didn't like how I was doing it (using the circular saw), so HE'S cutting out the other 3. :giggle: (No, I didn't plan that!) Have 3 batches of soap gelling - 1 100% tallow (I use it for laundry soap - it's FANTASTIC for that!), and 2 No-Soy Goat's Milk. I'm trying to move away from soy - I know it's on the skin and not in the body, but still.....

I discovered that my new scale is NOT working right - after the last soap-making fiasco, I decided to pull out my old postage scale. Seems that the dish on the new one weighs 7.0 oz on the old scale, and 2.0, 3.5, 1.8 or .3 oz on the new one. :sigh: So....I still need a new scale. (The old one is OLD-old, and really does need to be replaced. I've spilled so much oil and dyes on it it's not funny!)

Today's batches look MUCH better! We had a :shudder: spider get into Friday evening's milk, so I'm using fresh instead of frozen. The soap will be creamy instead of white, but that's OK. I have 1 batch of Plumeria Bouquet (cream with lavender swirls) and 1 with Rosehip Jasmine :ugh: (cream with red swirls). The Tallow soap is scented with Lavender - it makes the laundry smell clean.

I need to do a few more batches......but I want to get the new molds made first. So.....later!
