Oh boy. The heavens opened up today. We got about 1 1/4 inches. The only ones that were happy about that were the ducks!

Our farm intern arrived this morning and we tag teamed the first of the flower beds that needed cleaning out. It took about 3 hours but the final result was beautiful. I have a load of mulch slated to be delivered Friday, weather permitting. Another rainy weekend is in the forecast. ;-(

I finally got all the soap sliced from last week. It turned out nicely. Even the grapefruit scented one is going to be ok. I wish the scent was a little stronger but you can definitely smell an essence of grapefruit.

Hubs headed out early this morning to shoot in a skeet tournament. It was a cloudy foggy morning and I am nursing a pulled hamstring so I decided a morning of kitchen therapy was in order. I pondered what to fix for our weekly family supper tonight and decided meatloaf sounded good. The boys are usually big eaters so I laid out 3 pounds of meat for that. Then I hung another batch of clabbered milk for cheese. What I have left will get wiped out tonight for an appetizer.

The last of the goats kidded late yesterday. A beautiful set of twins, a doe and a buck. I love the moon spots on the little girl!

It is a misty moisty morning here on the homestead. Thankfully it is not supposed to amount to much since tomorrow's chore is getting some things in the garden. After my morning coffee I got an urge to make some soap. This tends to happen on gray days! I poured 7 blocks before running out of lye. The story of my life ;-(
