|So blessed to be able to work in the shop, keeping my hands busy in the oils and milk. Was in the barnyard with the kids, listening to the creek as it meanders through the backyard. Smelling all the good smells and seeing the gradual wakening of the earth as she embraces the EQUINOX>>> slowing it down a bit because of well…you know…but we are here and making some lovely soaps and lotions and salves which we all still need. Sent a wonderful test batch of chaga mushroom soap out to thisislifeitself and excited to hear their feedback. Kerry just batched some of our tea tree and lavender olive oil salve, infused with plantain and calendula blossoms. Super great for aiding in the healing process of dry chapped skin and all sorts of cuts and abrasions. I made some oatmeal lavender and orange spice a couple of days ago too. I love the process, the measuring and mixing and cutting of bars. Our September kids are growing well and I’ll do some barnyard updates soon so y’all can see Mabel and Molly and how big they have gotten. We are expecting another group to start kidding in the next 3-4 weeks and are very excited about that, I’ll keep you posted.|
WE LOVE YOU
Everything changes in an instant. Our everyday lives are being reimagined as we keep our distance, flatten the curve, and move forward as thats pretty much all we can do.
Its time to plant some seeds and watch something new grow. Keep each other safe, be kind and be generous in these times, and if it hasn’t dawned on you, that’s how to always be. Despite the lack of example shown by much of our government. Leadership in Washington is lacking as fingers get pointed and responsibility is never taken but blame is thrown around. Time for something new. Together, supporting each other is the path forward. City living will be the most challenging as we distance to flatten the curve. Big hearts everyone, Big Love. I was so looking forward to the spring markets as I have missed seeing you all over the winter. We will catch up again in due time. Amazing how connected we can still be in this age right???? Choose Love.

|from the whole herd here at the Alpine Made Farm we wish you the best|
