Oh If Only the fence was done...
We have the post on one side...
With the insulators ready to be put where they need to go..
But no wire yet. Our weekends have been full.
In the mean time they get out when I can walk them out..
They go crazy!
This is the original fence line that we will leave.
The electric fence will be about 4ft in from there.
Leave sort of a buffer zone between us and the road.
That a very busy Highway on the other side..
April up close..
She is the easiest going goat ever.
She also doesn't like to climb..
Sasha and Mariah...
And Pixy she has all the attitude of her momma!
I am glad I kept her.
She will be going to the shows this year.
Okay and for the DIY... I had a friend give me a recipe for homemade deodorant... Well I have looked several up but never tried. So I tried this one as it was so simple....
Its a 1/4 c each of Cornstarch and Baking soda then you add 2-3 tablespoons of Coconut oil. I added a few drops of Lavender. You know I cant just do it the way I was told!lol So I put it all in the food processor to make sure it was mixed up well... Candice came in while I was mixing it up and said OOooo Icing!! Lol No Cake in Sight... I almost had her convinced to try it.. I know I am a Mean Momma! But she didn't take the bait and was glad when I told her what it was. Anyway it works!! Woo hoo. I Like it too! So one more thing that has harmful ingredients that I can now provide Much cheaper and better for my family.
My Laundry soap I was not having as much luck with.. The clothes were clean but I couldn't get the grease spots out of them. It would leave spots on them and I couldn't get them out.. Then I had an Ahh hah Moment!! I use dawn Original dish soap.. Its Biodegradable which is my biggest concern because it drains out into our pasture.. And its Cheap
So here is my revised Laundry soap recipe....
1 bar of fels-Naptha soap. Grated and melted in hot water
4 cups of Washing Soda
4 cups of Borax
1/2-1 bottle of Dawn Original dish soap
Dissolve the first 3 ingredients in 4 gallons of hot water in a 5 gallon bucket Then add the dish soap. Stir well and let it cool. I use 1-2 cups per load. It last about 2 weeks and we do a LOT of Laundry!!
Looks like Kyle will be home for about a week. Something with the job and the cramped way they are trying to get some stuff done. The bricklayers and the other people cant work in the same spot at the same time... He is off tomorrow for sure But maybe the rest of the week... Which we could get some stuff done around here BUT when you live paycheck to paycheck it gets a little scary.. But we will be okay.. Maybe my fence will get done... And the bathroom door upstairs fixed.... And we can go through stuff and do some spring cleaning out and getting rid of no longer needed things.... And well you get the picture always things to do!!lol
