It's been a long day. I'm tired!
We made a batch of cheese today. We ended up getting 10 wheels of Gouda, each wheel weighing about 10 lbs. each. It didn't finish up in the press until after 10 p.m. So, I'm still up, sleepy as can be, but just can't sleep just yet.
We're planning on making another batch of cheese on Wednesday. I sometimes hate making batches that close together, it takes me some time in between to catch other work up that slides. But, the last of the week is supposed to be clear, so hopefully Al can get back to our back hayfield and finish up the haymaking, at least until the next cutting comes on.
Went to some more yard sales this past week. I'm so shocked and disgusted at how much people really think their junk is worth. And yes, I did mean JUNK. Now, on the other hand, I did find some good sales that had nice stuff for cheap. They got my money. Emily will be well dressed for the remainder of the summer, and into fall. I even found some clothes that fit me nicely for almost nothing.
It almost feels like fall today and tonight. Low humidity, sunny. Tonight the crickets were chirping, that is a sure sign that summer is on the downhill side. Some of my dear GLU friends will be thrilled with the coming of fall. I do enjoy spring and summer, but I have to admit that I am starting to look forward to the cooler days. And cheese making will be ending at the end of November, so that means about a 3-4 month break over the winter months.
I will be a vendor at our local pumpkin festival in the lovely town of Barnesville. I'm sure I'll be busy, busy, busy. But, I do look forward to it. It's also a lot of fun seeing how big the "King Pumpkin" can be each year.
Now I'm off to bed. I need some sleep. I get to look forward to cheese house clean up in the morning. I could've/should've done it tonight, but.......
