Our beautiful wrapped soap, ready to go off to a customer. In the background you will see a big block of soap that has just come out of the mould, that I am still going to cut up.
Rae has the apricots simmering on the dover stove, 2kg of apricots ( from our own trees) gives us three huge mayonnaise jars and one little jar of jam. Just a word of advice, it seems that you can't do more than 3.5kg at a time, as the jam then seems to go dark brown, or even black.
More simmering. Its the perfect day for the stove to be going.
"T-bone" the dog, taking advantage of the lovely warm stove. As a matter of fact, this is his permanent spot throughout winter. He had a hard time staking his claim on this crate, as we have now have nine dogs, compared to the three we arrived here with.
Yummy, yummy apricot jam simmering, whohoooo.
Our "Fynbos" soap and the "Olive & Coconut" soap, all nicely cut up and ready to go off to the curing room for 4 weeks.
My dog "Bullet", alias,"Bully" or "Mister B". Bullet and T-Bone are brothers.
The Jacaranda tree is also taking a beating, can you see the carpet of fallen flowers.
Bread's out and I must say, they look like a pair of hot buns. Below we have the loaves along with the apricot jam. Right now, it's just getting dark and we are all holed up inside, in the kitchen with all the dogs, all nice and cosy with the little black belly Dover Stove, our supper on top and everyone nice and warm, with the falling rain outside.
