Today Is A Great Day!

I woke up in so much pain, I just wanted to cry, so I did.
Then I remembered today is milk day.  Here in Costa Rica we live on a dirt road in the mountains.  Our milkman drives a quad for delivering the fresh milk to all the neighbors.  We get milk delivered 4 days a week. When it starts to pile up on us we make cheese. We make mozzarella, cottage, ricotta, cheddar, colby and camembert.  My daughter makes the camembert. Because she makes it to sell she gets her milk on Sunday. That's the milkman's day off but he made a deal with her to bring her enough for her camembert cheese.  It's the most complicated and time consuming. She makes it to sell at the butcher shop up the road.  The other cheeses I make and they are just for our own use. Well, at least till I perfect them, then perhaps I will sell.  Anyway, I like making cheese. It always puts me in a good mood.  :)
