Today was sunny and 50's but it was very windy and felt much cooler. I'd post a picture of me dressed for winter (coveralls, hood, neck warmer) but there was no one to take my picture because James was doing his last long run before his Hellgate 100 run. You'll just have to imagine me looking my best as I ventured out in this weather. I know, how am I going to make it through winter if I find 50's so tough?
The goat and donkey's pasture is pretty much stripped bare so today I let the girls out to graze in the lawn for a few hours. They didn't go very far even when I encouraged them to. Here's a picture of them grazing along with the dogs who are trying to figure out what "this grazing thing" is.
After the girls went in I let the boys out for a few hours. They're much more adventurous and wander farther.
Thanks to them I got my rose bush pruned.
I made soap yesterday and this morning it sliced very well. I hope it comes out ok. I won't know for at least a month. This one has sage in it. Today I ordered some essential oils to add fragrances to my soaps. I haven't done that in the past. I ordered Caribbean Coconut, Eucalyptus and Spearmint, and Almond and Honey. I also ordered coconut oil, palm oil and shea butter. It's hard to find these oils around here.
