New Goat Milk Soap Project
March 9, 2009 by Mary Humphrey
I missed blogging this weekend. I have some catching up to do!
We visit friends each Sunday afternoon. When I called yesterday morning they invited us out to a later dinner, instead of the Sunday afternoon visit. They said, “You guys need a break, you have been hitting the (kidding) hard on the farm now for over a week.” I hesitated at first. Wondered how I would fit a trip away in. But, common sense told me it would be good for us. It was.
Today has been wrapped around deskwork, chore running, feeding bottle kids, and a new goat milk soap project.
Some of you know that my love of soap began when I was right at 8 years old, when I bought primitive soap balls on a school field trip at a pioneer farm. I never thought I would try to make soap myself (not back then), I just fell in love with soap without realizing it. I collected soap through my childhood, never gave that a thought either.
After lunch today I headed out to my shop and got some activity and energy flowing. It does not not look like much right now, except perhaps balls of cookie dough! Here are the starts to my primitive soap balls. Once they are cured, I am taking some to a shop placement. I’ll post pics of that final project later this week…my ideas are rounding up!
Tyra says…”Mom, can you do something with these goat kids?” My boxers love it when I bring a bottle baby in. Even Spike, the 90 pound male, gets to be a spring board from time to time. He just looks at me with an empty stare.
