Tripp didn't make it. I HATE this part of animal-ownership! :sigh:
To distract myself, I made 2 batches of cheese - the first, Queso Fresco, a quick, semi-hard cheese. The 2nd, Farmhouse Cheddar - it's in the hanging to drain stage right now. IF I timed it right, the Queso Fresco will be ready to come OUT of the press at the same time the Cheddar needs to go in. (If not, I have a cheap press - our first one - that you don't know how much pressure is being used. It'll work to finish, if need be.)
Also: last night Herself and I revamped my soap boxes. Same boxes, same labels, but we're adding a strip of scrapbook paper over the top. Adds color, lets me know which soap is which...we'll see how it works. I can't guarantee the same papers, of course, but for now I'm happy with it.
I'm getting ready to re-vamp the soap storage, too - right now, all the ready-to-sell soaps are in 1 large Rubbermaid box; the not-quite-ready ones are in another. It works....but I have to rummage thru a lot of soaps to pull out specific ones...and you can't tell HOW MANY of each I have.
I'm going to pick up some plastic shoeboxes - 1 box per scent. There's room in the armoire to store them....and it'll make things more organized. I like organization...even if I'm not
We're just a family living the good life in the country. With goats. (And horses, chickens, and dogs. But the goats outnumber everybody else!)
