harena: (Soap Logo!)

Finally pushed myself into making soap today. Aside from the funk my brain has been in lately1, the never-ending thunderstorm we had the 27th of May really made a mess of the basement and i had to do at least two rounds of getting it ready for actually making soap.

This batch was a specially requested scent-free one by a couple of people (sort of >.>). Forgot to ask about the goats milk but figured what the heck, it's got a "scent" so i left it out too.

And since i was making it for just 2 people, i made a smaller batch than usual. Man, it's been a long long time since i've made only 2lbs of soap! i've more recently made vegan soap, even. i had forgotten how much more quickly only 12 oz of lye water cools down as opposed to 24oz! Ah, chemistry.

Anyway, it's done and tucked in the cooler for 2 days before the unmolding and i hope it comes out all right. As i said, it's been a while! *crosses fingers*




1: Head's been really wonky; possibly by stupid hormones. Who even knows. And today is particularly bad because this evening is Benjamin's Transition from 5th Grade and whilst i am very excited about that (Yay, Benjamin for surviving elementary school! You Rock!), my mother out of the freaking blue decided that she was my children's grandmother and is going to attend. Oh Goody, something that is socially strenuous for me anyway is going to be made worse by my mother being an asshole in public like she always does. Arg.

Soap! Yay! (And goats milk is fine, for future reference. No goats milk is also fine. :D )

Go, Benjamin, go! Here's hoping that your mother is on her best behavior. *firm nod*
