Waiting for the Milkman

Don't get the wrong idea. I really did wait around all day today for a legitimate milkman to bring us 2 gallons of farm fresh dairy goodness and nothing more. Honestly! 

A friend had tuned me into a local dairy that also provides a delivery service for their products. After doing the research and talking to them, I realized it was a fantastic deal. Affordable, hormone-free milk from a local source for the whopping delivery charge of three dollars a MONTH! 

Our first delivery was to arrive today. We had timed our milk supply appropriately with Roscoe finishing up the last of the carton last night. So when his nap time came about this afternoon with no sign of the milkman, I started to get a little anxious. Roscoe went down surprisingly well without a bottle, but by 5 p.m. we were still without milk and there was no way he would have tolerated going without, a second time. 

After leaving an obviously perturbed-mother-without-milk message on the Dairy's machine, I packed up the kids and ventured out to get milk from the store. (See carton on the left). 

At 7:30 p.m. a very apologetic sounding fellow called muttering something about not being able to find the house and that he'd be right over with our milk. 

And at 9:30 p.m. this evening, he finally arrived. (See bottles on the right) I never did catch his name.

Nice mug shot Eden. Looks like you are saying "what do I do with all this milk?"

Make pie!
