A Slice of My Life

I think squash curlicues are so cute. I bet you do too.
See the baby squash in the background? I hand-pollinated
three flowers over the weekend; I noticed 
that several little squash nubs turned black
and didn't develop as they should, and I think it's
because they weren't well-pollinated. Crossing my fingers
that there will be three more baby squash on the vine.


My hope is to inspire you, and to encourage your homesteading plans and your dreams
of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life. Join me here:

Soapmaking Safety and How to Weigh Oils for a Batch of Soap

How to measure oils to make goat milk soap, and the rules of soapmaking safety.

Have you ever used a bar of handmade goat milk soap? I just can't tell you how superior it is to store-bought soap. The lather is thick, creamy and luxurious. The fat in the milk makes the soap extra-rich, and I use skin-nourishing oils. Everyone who has tried my soap loves it!

Silver Sunday

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- God's mercy
- August rain
- garden produce
- flowers
- air conditioning
Silver Sunday

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, 
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 NIV
