Happy 4th of July!

It's a beeeee-yoooou-ti-ful day in Colorado today!

Furry Husband and I got up early, took our dogs on a 3 mile walk and I'm making some mild feta cheese. The goat kids are weaned now which means we have plenty o' milk for cheese glorious cheese. It is hanging in cheesecloth right now draining whey as I type. In about 4 hours, I'll salt it and leave it out at room temperature for 24 hrs to cure.

Already our hay supplier, Ellie, put in an order for my feta cheese. We trade my cheese for her hay.

This afternoon we are headed to Denver for my niece's very first birthday. We bought her an automatic bubble blower gun powered by batteries. Figure that would make a little tot laugh and save my sister from dipping the bubble wand and blowing over and over and over again. I hope it's a good first year birthday toy.

We'll come home and watch fireworks from our car in Wellington on a dirt road near the park where they light the display. We wear our pajamas, bring along some brewski's and lawn chairs. We're going with our favorite neighbors, Barista and Pansy. Should be a lovely 4th this year.

Have fun whatever you might be doing for your 4th of July! Don't lose any fingers!

Hope you had a great weekend. The homemade feta sounds too good. How did your niece like her bubble gun?
