Well it has been a hectic last couple months. We bought a house which was so stressful...I am so glad that the whole process is done. Then we needed to dig a koi pond for our Koi, Biggie, who outgrew his 20 gallon tank a LONG time ago. He is probably between 10-12 inches, way too big for a 20 gallon aquarium. So now he is happy in his pond and he has 4 new koi companions who are much smaller than him so they follow him around like he is the boss. I am sure he must love it! Here is a picture of the pond. I will put up a better one soon.
We have been doing a lot of yard work and I painted the kitchen and hallway. We just got some cool antique furniture for our formal living room so now we just need to furnish the sun porch.
This weekend was really fun we had a 2 day open house for family and friends to come over see the house and hang out. It was really nice to see so many people that I don't get to see that often. A lot of my family travel almost 2 hours or more to get here so I really appreciated them taking the time to come over.
On the soaping front, I have a basic set up for my soaping room, but I still want to paint the floor and walls (some areas still need walls though). I have only made a couple batches of soap since I have been in the new house, but I will have to ramp that up this weekend. My inventory is getting low. I have made a bunch of laundry soap and started selling it the CT Farm Fresh Express. They are a wonderful local food delivery service in Connecticut. I will be listing it soon on my website and etsy. I am selling 16oz and 32oz bags which is enough for 25-50 and 50-100 batches, respectively, depending on the type of washing machine you have.
I have missed you all. I will attempt to update the blog more frequently now that things at home have settled down a bit.
