Yes, I've been away

 So, I took a new class... It was only three weeks long, but when I finished, I had a new job! I'm working as a CNA now, and I'm working evenings and sleeping days. That's why I haven't been playing on the interwebs lately. Sorry for that.

 But, there is new news, the fun kind. We're planning on getting chickens this year! Erin and I took a chicken class yesterday,

and Agway is having it's "Chick Days" next Saturday. That's where we intend on getting our babies.

 Today, I took a soapmaking class at Red Bee Apiary.

She gave us a recipe, and showed us how to weigh it and mix it.

The mixing took about half an hour...

So, we went out and looked at her chickens,

And bee hives.

When it finally hit trace, it was measured out, and we took it home.

The whole process took about two hours. In a day or two, I can take it out of it's Dixie cup, and after three weeks, it will be ready to use. I think I'm ready to make my own at home.

Here is her front gate. So cool, I had to take a picture. =D
