The milk lady cometh!

Pasteurizing the milk

Pasteurizing the milk

This post is for all you raise-your-own-chickens and drink-raw-milk homeschool moms out there. Vicki and the kids have not been pleased with the taste of store-bought milk in boxes and had become increasingly jealous of our friends in the country who get raw milk delivered every day. (I exclude myself because I’m lactose-intolerant and have never drunk milk). We asked several locals and no one knew of local milk delivery; however, sharp-eyed early riser Vicki one Saturday morning on the way to the grocery store noticed some unusual activity on the sidewalk above our street. Could it be a bona fide milk lady? The rest, as they say, is history.

We now get raw milk delivered 3x per week and Vicki pasteurizes it on the stove. It costs less, tastes better (so they say), and generally ensures that everyone is up by 7am at least three days a week when the doorbell rings 🙂

In other news, I’m back from a 2-week trip to the States and we are delighted to have Rebekah with us until Christmas. The kids were sick earlier this week but went back to school yesterday. They are currently practicing their flautas (recorders) for a school music competition on Saturday and Vicki has been practicing folk dances with the 1st and 4th grade moms for the school’s upcoming anniversary celebration. I had many good meetings in Colorado with authors and publishers and continue to work on RememberOneAnother.com. We are thankful for a season of tranquility. And fresh milk.

    I always thought flautas were an entree on a Mexican restaurant menu. So much for my Spanish.

    Love, Dad
