If anyone would ask me right now how I am feeling my answer would be a resounding COLD! This has been a rough winter for us. We have dealt with frozen bathtub drains, frozen hot water faucets in the kitchen and I have to heat water to do dishes along with frozen water for the animals that has to be swapped out with warm water a few times a day. Winter on the farm is hard but I would not change my life for anything. Being tired after a hard day of working outside is a good kind of tired that makes me feel good deep down inside. I am anxiously awaiting spring though and anticipating the joy of my garden, new babies and the warmth of the sun. Below are some pictures of one of the things I am doing this winter. My best friend and I decided to try our hands at making Deer tallow soap and it was a huge success! The bars will be ready to use in about a week and I will be sharing again to let you know how much we like it.
smelled so much better this time then it did when I was cooking down the fat.
patiently waiting for it to reach trace.
I pray that you all are having a blessed day and are staying warm! God bless each and everyone of you.
