Last Days of Summer

Well we had grand weekend plans of glazing windows, making cheese, doing this week's long run actually outside this time and just hanging around the house. However, none of it happened and I'm actually kinda glad!

The contractor came Saturday morning to work on the bathroom and was in and out by 2:00 pm. As he was leaving we got a desperate call from my little bro begging us to come to the lake and entertain him! He is leaving for school in 2 weeks and will be in South Florida at a baseball acadamy for his senior year so when he threw the guilt trip on we caved. The fact that he is currenly healing from leg surgury really helped his case as well. So we all jumped in the car and headed to the lake for our last fam jam of Summer 2010.

As you can see, Strongbow loves his car rides to the lake.

Mom made us pose so that she could have a pic for her 9 kids and 1 grandchild.

A few of Tyler's pics. He was practicing using very little light, he is getting good don't you think?

So we got back to the homestead at about 5:00 and talked ourselves out of running our 7 miles outside (we are training for the Montgomery Half Marathon) and ran on the treadmill while we watched the finale of the Next Food Network Star.

Then....when we got home at 9:00 I realized that my gallon of milk that I bought to make cheese was about to expire so I just had to start that project that night as well. As you can tell, my time management skills are a bit lacking! Don't blame me, there is so much to do with so little time. So back to the cheese, I know I told you in an earlier post that we have already tried to make cheese but I lied, we haven't tried. I already had the kit so I figured that was good enough, my bad. I guess God was teaching me a lesson about fibbing because my cheese SO did not work! I'm blaming Barber's milk though, not myself. I need local milk according to the directions. Anyone know where I can get local milk in Montgomery and since when is Barber's not local? Anyway, I will prevail!

Happy Monday!


  1. Tyler! Well done my friend on the photos...I'm sure you love it!

  2. I can't be sure about this, but I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that "local milk" is supposed to mean straight from the cow (not pasteurized or homogenized).

    What kind of cheese are you trying to make?

  3. Sara, welcome to blogland.
