The days have been so wonderfully full as of late! And my mind has been swirling with many things to post about . . . they've started to pile up. :) As have the photos on my camera, too! So here's a little taste into some of those things . . . .
A visitor on the cauliflower and broccoli plants indoors . . . we have three of them in fact!
The first of the peppers to begin sprouting
I figured out the dimensions for a soap mold to fit the recipe I have, measured and marked the boards, then Dad sawed them for me and drilled the nail holes, and then I nailed it together! I was eager to try it out, and as I had a batch of soap to make, did just that. :) It worked so well! Much better than what I had been using before. The bars turned out much more uniform, and with being in the wooden box, didn't cool off too quickly. Success!
The finished bars cut, trimmed, and curing
With my afghan finished, I have been working more on my cross-stitch in the evenings . . . it is nearly finished now!
Leah trimming Larkspur's hooves . . . five goats down, two left to do!
The honeybees in all three of our hives have started to bring in pollen! I was excited to see that!
Despite being covered in snow for weeks, our kale and spinach are still doing well!
And even the celery has managed to stay alive . . . albeit the plants and stalks are rather small
Dolls in progress
Yet what has been filling a lot of my days has been the 'big project' . . . I am so close to being done! The next step involves the printer, but it is giving us issues . . . and a good lesson in patience. :) Here is a glimpse into part of what the project is, though . . . .
Now I am off to enjoy a gloriously beautiful day while it lasts!
