Just a few minutes …

I skimmed a half gallon of cream off two gallons of milk this morning and now it’s sitting on the counter top to sour so we can make more butter.  I also have a large batch of cheese to package up and a half gallon of buttermilk ready to go.

Last night, I made two simple, spreadable goat cheese flavors.  One is garlic and the other garlic and sun dried tomato.  I added both to pasta with arugula and some grilled chicken and we had a wonderful meal.  We had to buy a new gas grill this past weekend.  The one I’ve had for several years died quite a while back.  It was really too hot to grill outside over the summer, but we’ve both missed grilled meat.  Tonight I have out some steaks from our first Jersey bull, Buster, to go on the grill.  Looking forward to that!

Wally and I went to bed at 8:00 last night.  It was wonderful.  I slept most of the night and the times I did wake up were minimal and I dozed off back to sleep in short order.  We both woke feeling very rested and perky.  I told Wally we need to do that more often.

I’ve caught about eight roosters, there’s at least five more to catch.  They are wily creatures, very difficult to catch.  I just barely caught another one this morning; I just barely got hold of him and almost couldn’t hold on to him.  The lady with the White Orphingtons can’t catch her chickens so I couldn’t go and get them yesterday.  Eventually she’ll catch them.

Yesterday afternoon, I set up a sprinkler system in the garden which will make watering the beds a lot easier.  I simply don’t have time to stand there and water the beds.

Haven’t heard anything further on Ace.  I’m on the fence about whether I want her to bring him back or not.  We’ll see what happens.

I best get out to milk, etc.

Until later …
