Well, the State of Michigan lets you participate in Cow Shares. Basically it's a Co-op where you buy in to get raw milk. The Princess and Little E went with me yesterday to meet the family who does this, and the "Girls". Here is a fun pic of the "Girls". The front one, #73 is called GRANDMA. The BEST part was that the kids got to NAME A COW!!! #5 has been officially christened "CUPCAKE". LOL The family loved it! We all got a good smile out of it!
The funny thing, is I am old enough to remember the silver box that sat out by our front door. And once or twice a week the "Milk Man" would come and deliver our milk. That silver box kept it cool for a couple hours in case we weren't home to get the delivery. Pretty awesome memory.
I have to drive over an hour each week now to get our milk. However, I priced it out, and I guess maybe I spent an extra $5-$10 a month on gas, but less on the milk. We were buying Organic milk at almost $6 a gallon! Now we get Raw Milk at $5 a gallon. I don't think these two gallons are going to make it until Saturday though. LOL It tastes SO GOOD! Even Little E loves it!
On a happy WEIGHT LOSS note, I've dropped down to 150.6 lbs. I actually saw 149.2 for a DAY! HA HA HA It's been 150.6 for 3 days though...I stopped snacking all day. I eat as regular as I can - meaning I try to eat 3 meals a day. Plus I'm working my butt of a few days a week helping Mr. Eye Candy with the business. We laid 12 yards of mulch one day, and weed wacked a Swamp the next. I had to wear "MAN WADERS" in there! lol Should have snapped a shot of that! FUNNY! Me in wading pants! HA HA Sweated like a pig out there in 86 degree weather. yuck. That's the day I was 149.2 I think it may have something to do w/ the Pants. LOL
Have a great Sunday everyone, and a FANTASTIC WEEK!
