    You can build a proper storage room for all your oils!!!

    Yes! We built a closet in the current house a while ago to hide the water filtration system, and now 50% of it is my ingredients and equipment. Once we move, I don’t know where I’ll put everything since our basement won’t be finished. I’m hoping that I will have space to hide them in my room since I recently bought an old wood drawer chest that I refinished, and the drawers are quite deep. I will have my desk in my room, so I’d like to have a crafting area all in one place. The rooms will be soundproofed (hopefully well enough), so I should be able to craft even at night! Otherwise, it’ll go somewhere in the basement until we finish it ourselves. We will have a larger cold room though, so I can place the shorter shelf-life oils there!

    Belinda, thank you! I’m so excited to move! We are moving so that we can have chickens and goats. We had some chickens before, but we aren’t actually allowed in the city, so we’re moving. The chickens act like little lap dogs!

    This is half of the land we bought. It is 8 acres 😊 :

    Beautiful! You are so lucky!! I’d love to have chickens, goats, cows….a proper farm. I’m sure my allergies would LUUUUUUV that! Haha!

    Goats are really fun animals. My nieces used to do 4H and would raise sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, you name it. I always loved the goats. Very smart and fun to have around. Chickens are pretty funny too. Sheep, on the other hand, are pretty dumb animals. No fun at all.

    Thank you! I can’t wait! I’ve had my chickens for almost two years, but have never had goats. Other than petting zoos as a young kid, the only other goats I’ve seen were recently at two different farms 😂 But I’ve done a ton of research. We will be getting Nigerian Dwarf goats, which only get to about knee height at their shoulders.

    The girls always got Nubian and Pygmy goats to raise for 4H. At least that’s what I think they were when I look at pictures of goat breeds. It’s been a while since we’ve been to the 4H Fair with them since they’re grown and married. I’m sure we will start going to the 4H Fair again when their kids get big enough to start.

    Goats remind me of dogs. They follow you around, like to be petted, and will jump in the car with you if you let them! Haha!

    We had goats a few years ago,they would follow you right into the house if you weren’t careful. Sensitive bellies and curious minds. Ours ate our gladioli bulbs one day and all ended up poisoned :(. Hubs won’t try again. I loved goats milk ice cream and raised the kids on goats milk those years. We still have chickens and I love my feathered flock. They are quite petty. I live on a working farm and wouldn’t give it up for anything. So excited for you Penny and cannot wait for the stories that must be sure to come šŸ˜€

    Yes, they are basically dogs that produce food 😂 I’m so excited to get mine. They are adorable and tiny as babies.

    I’m sorry about your goats, SimplyShe. I know it’s hard to make sure they don’t eat anything they aren’t supposed to. We will be fencing them in a 80x120ft fence, but letting them out into the 8 acres when we are home.
    Ps. I’m the one moving, not Penny 😉

    oops:) Sorry Joyful, I knew that, had Penny in my head for another project I was thinking on. My DIY track has veered off into making nutcheeses for my dairy allergic self. I am having a blast…I think I figured this out….

    Awesome! I want room for my stuff. My poor closet is getting crowded. Very crowded. So is my desk. My poor writing desk. I need a second room for crafting. *sigh* I’m going to where you all are…minus cold and snow.

    It’s fine, SimplyShe!

    I just posted a new thread in this category to post the lipstick recipes, if you guys want to check it out.

    Sorry you lost your goats, Connie! How sadā˜¹ļø😢

    I love goats milk ice cream, but it is not “lactose friendly” like it says on the package. My tummy still gets cranky with it! I still eat the GM ice cream, though not quite as much as I did the first time. Apparently moderation is the key!😁

    Can’t wait to see more pictures of your new homestead, Joyful!

    Goat’s milk is more “lactose intolerant friendlier, not friendly”. I used to be fine with milk, then for maybe a year lactose intolerant, and now i’m totally fine. I don’t know why it changed, but I am glad, haha.

    A breeder from whom I will probably buy my goats from has a goat giving birth today or tomorrow! She said that she’s showing signs of labour and will let me know! Ahhh baby goats! I’m the first on her waiting list, so I can’t wait to see them!

    Awww! They’re adorable and my husky would hate them. He’d be like, why do they think they’re in charge? 😆

    I love baby animals. They’re so adorable and they make you want to cuddle. Sigh. Shango will get cranky if I bring home a baby husky. Anything that doesn’t know the rules, he gets cranky over. He’s such a old fart. Lol

    So unfortunately she had triplets but 2 babies died, and the other is a buckling. The second goat hasn’t given birth yet
