This and That
Photo is of Nitro last Halloween. Sure do miss the big guy.
Been busy today with 2 big wholesale soap orders and got a order for 25 candles for tomorrow. William is going to a Boy Scout weekend camping trip with 2 of his grandsons. I have been busy making a huge pot of chili and lots of corn muffins that they can heat up tomorrow night after they get their tents and everything set up. I also made some pumpkin muffins and goat milk fudge that I got the recipe from Pine Pod Farm . I must say it is yummy. I don't like the taste of coffee but I like this fudge! I have been packing up camping gear, food, etc so our hired hand can take it and meet William. He is going to go camping with them too. I will be taking care of the animals and trying to build up my soap stock for the craft fair next weekend. I hope to finish a book I started a couple months ago.
I was asked if I used a pod press for some of my teas. No, but I am thinking about getting one.
I was also asked about Bud's eyes in the photo from last post. His eyes were closed as he was asleep. The big spot is not his eye but the subtympanic shield.
The boys are still in rut at the moment and yes there is that goat smell in the air. Nubian's don't smell as strongly as other breeds but they do have that strong scent at the moment. They are in the woods in front of the property and thank goodness the clothesline is in the back of the property. Hopefully this rutting will end soon and the scent and crazy behavior will settle down. LOL
Yes, we do have a lot of animals and I do feel like ma Walton saying good night. I usually go out each night before bed to make sure everyone is okay.
Yes, Fred was right again. We didn't get the rain the weatherman was calling for. My neighbor called me today saying she checked to see where Fred was before she went to bed. She wanted to know if she needed to close her windows for rain or not. She says she trusts Fred much more than the TV.
My friend HomemakerAng is having a fantastic give away! You should visit her blog and check it out. With all the things she has been doing I get tired just reading about her day.
That's about it for my day. I still have a few things to clean up in the kitchen and things to pack for the camping trip before I head to bed. Everyone have a great Friday and a fun relaxing weekend!
