Soaping Fool on the Homestead

Here's the soap I made yesterday and cut today for my favorite nephew-in-law, Troy:

What do ya think? I made another batch a few minutes ago for my very favorite great-nephew. I used a Curves for Men type fragrance oil. It's supposed to be gray, with black soap cubes throughout it. I used a new colorant, and right now it is looking very suspiciously beige. I'm not sure it's going to turn out as I planned at all. I'll know tomorrow when I cut it. I'm naming this one Tyler. The little snot better like it.

I worked today and Bernie headed out to our house in town to empty out the refrigerator and freezer. We probably should have thought to do that a few months ago. I know that thing was slap full, but he came home with just a small cooler full of food. I said "That's all?" and he said "Don't even ask." Apparently he had several trash bags for the dump - and he wasn't happy about it. Darnit.

Not sure what we're doing on the homestead this weekend, but I do know it will involve us BEING on the homestead. Even Bernie has decided he's not going anywhere. We're staying put and working around here. Yay! I love it when I bring Bernie around to my way of thinking.

Bee Free,
Penny

Assuming a man can be interested in fragrant soap, this is a very manly-looking soap. Honestly and secretly, we like the idea, particularly if someone else is doing the soaping :).

Have fun Penny! I'll keep you posted on job-hunt.

Thanks, Darrell. I just got the soap I made last night - Tyler. The color is not at all what I had hoped for, but I think it still looks manly.

Good luck with the job hunt! Please do let me know how it goes. If you need me to lie about, er I mean attest to, your great talents again, please don't hesitate to ask.
