Making Liquid Hand Soap
I grated 2 bars of goat's milk soap and melted it down in 4 cups of water, adding 2 Tbsp. of glycerine. We decided not to add any oils for fragrance.
This will cut down on our costs for buying liquid hand soap, and is one more thing I can make myself.
It's not only chemical free, but much better for the environment as well.
Today is a rainy, cool fall day. The sun is trying to slip through the clouds.
I've managed to freeze the remaining picked peppers. Dutch Oven Chili is simmering for dinner.
I have the afternoon to work on writing.
I'm sure after today's rain, I'll have more in the garden soon.
Hubby and I are already planning another night away for ourselves. It's our prescription to a blessed marriage.
