I was determined to make oodles of goat milk soap today, and I got the job done (a little later). Right before I started the 3rd batch the power went out again. So, the husband and I headed to town to get a much needed garden rake and a few flowers. I always get the red, purple and white petunias for the front porch.

I am happy to announce that the Ocean Breeze goat milk soap passed the test yesterday!
It smells wonderful, best described as fresh!
What inspired me was the dream of a clear ocean, beautiful blue green color, white sand, gently rolling waters, along with a cool breeze. I have not gone on a vacation in years, but I am one to get up before anyone else and take a beach stroll. Absolutely heaven. Back to the soap...does the soap smell like the ocean? No! It can also be described as a scent close to clean cotton. Fresh!
The soap lathers well and has some nice glycerin qualities.
Ocean Breeze will be moved to the website tomorrow.
I do not need to tell you this, but I appreciate and enjoy it, half of the first batch is on reserve for Alix at Casa Hice. She scooped the bars up as soon as she learned that they had been cut. She has an Annie's Goat Hill Goat Milk Soap addiction. There is no cure.
There will be more Ocean Breeze soap in the soap pot in the near future, it is a keeper!
Have a good evening!

- A brilliantly blue bird of old fields and roadsides, the Indigo Bunting prefers abandoned land to urban areas, intensely farmed areas, or deep forests. The Indigo Bunting migrates at night, using the stars for guidance. It learns its orientation to the night sky from its experience as a young bird observing the stars.
- The sequences of notes in Indigo Bunting songs are unique to local neighborhoods. Males a few hundred meters apart generally have different songs. Males on neighboring territories often have the same or nearly identical songs
