A brief (I hope) hiatus from constant blogging


As many of you who read Rurality's blog may know, she and I are soap-makers. And craft show season is coming up waaay too fast. In between blogging and trying to get my company web site finished, I've gotten terribly behind on making,curing, cutting and wrapping soap. So it's now crunch time and I have to start burning the morning, noon and midnight oil gettting enough soap and stuff ready to sell next month, and the month after that, and....


Sam and the girls have resigned themselves to not getting as much attention during soaping season, but I think they secretly enjoy getting a break fom being my primary source of amusement...

I'll be back in from time to time to post their latest antics, just not every day. There was a possum on the deck this evening- if he hangs around there may be an antic or to two to relate, for sure.

I have made lye soap but mine wasn't as pretty as yours. we had a old black kittle in the back yard we made soap in. dumped meat rhyns fat, water and greese we saved from out pork meat cooking. carried brush and built a big fire under the old pot cooked the stuff all day in the back yard.had to have a long stick to stir the contents ever now and then.if the stick wasn't long enough burned my face. if that didn't take the hide off you face the lye soap would.

Your website looks great and I'll be placing an order soon. We're planning to build a hen house in the next couple weeks - - yes, a bachelorette pad. No roosters allowed (especially Sam)!

I just discovered your blog, and I can hardly wait for you to add more chicken observations. Looking forward to it. In the meantime, I hope the soap selling season goes well.

Sorry to have been away so long, y'all. Thanks for all the nice comments.
Patsy- That sounds just like the way my MIL described making soap with her mother when she was a girl.
gracious acres- You NEED a rooster- just think how much fun you'll miss without a Sam-like critter to keep life interesting.
farm wife, mtmsouth, rhodent and Halleyville- thanks for sticking around :)
