I can't keep this up. I can't keep using up my precious food stuff making things I don't usually make just because I'm antsy. I used the last can of pineapple on this cake and a whole egg. Eggs are precious right now so it was a splurge and I felt guilty doing it.
If I want to make stuff I need to head out of the kitchen and get back into the soap room where I've got supplies galore just begging to be used up.
I really needed the diversion. Yesterday morning I hit the wall with this whole thing. I needed to be up and moving and making soap keeps me busy for hours. I thought I'd start out simple and use up the rest of the goat's milk soap on something plain but......
.....since the whole idea was to keep me busy I decided to get a bit fancy. It's pretty close to being a Plain Ole Goat soap because the colors are all natural clay. It only has a hint of Milk and Honey fragrance that I am pretty sure might not survive the curing process.
The clean up was a bit of a challenge. I have to ration my paper products so I had to use lots of towels and wash rags to clean up my mess. It was an extra step but doable.
After I put that soap to bed I started working on the soap I have left on the drying racks. I had stopped wrapping them when the Spring Giveaway was a no go. I'll finish this batch and hand them out to the folks that are helping us get through this. I gave the grocery delivery guy some on Friday-from a safe distance. I'll drop some off at the dump tomorrow when we unload our trash and pop some in the mailbox for the mail carrier.
I had been waiting for my new bigger shrink wrap bands for these big bars. It's here but I hate it. Look at how wrinkly it is. Oh, well....it does its job. Hopefully in six weeks when all the new soap I am planning on making this week is cured we'll all be back to normal and I can get back to sharing it with ya'll. I sure miss that.
