You know how you should never cook bacon in the nude? Well, you should also not make soap without a shirt on! It was very humid and warm today. I was just dripping sweat but I wanted to make soap so I did. Just didn't have a shirt on. I got a little bit of lye on my tummy that I did not feel for awhile. (It was waiting to react with some sweat.) I got the soap made and called my Mom and while talking to her I felt a little stinging. I had heard that you need to put vinegar on the spot as that will neutralize the lye. So I did. Boy Howdy was that a big mistake! Holy cow! I was experiencing a new kind of pain! WOW! I put mom on hold (set the phone down ) and got up and leaned into the sink and ran water over the spot with the sink hose. And yep, running water over your tummy makes you go pee. So I then had to go take care of that.
That spot is a little red still, but it kind of blends in with the little sun burn that I got later on while I was outside with the goats. I was trying to turn my fish belly white tummy to a lovely golden tan color so I had my shirt pulled up ( Yes, I do wear clothes! ) and I now have a pink tummy. Looks better then the fish belly white if I do say so.
Another thing I learned today is. Don't have the goats walk by your flapping clothes on the clothes line. Goats want to know what everything is. So I had to stop Maggie from nibbling on the sheets. While I'm getting Maggie away from the sheets I had JuJu trying to taste the towels. That was a 3 ring circus for a few minutes.
Sorry, I don't want to offend you but I also learned ( A few days ago) that my smart, best dog ever. The dog that never does anything gross, will eat fresh goat dropping! I thought that my dog was above all the. She's not.
The soap I made today was made with one of those scents that is called "Relaxation Type "
The blend is Lavender, Marjoram, Patchouli, Mandarin, Geranium and Chamomile. I am just blank when it comes to thinking of a name for this. Arrruuugghhhhh! All I can think of is Sleepy time but that's the name of a tea. Think people think!
