The weather's hot enough to breed lots and lots of flies, but still not too hot for them to be uncomfortable and DIE. I really really want an air curtain for the back door. Another month, though, and it will be too hot....Thanks, Pancake.


After skimming and saving the cream from the tops of my bottles for the last week, I had about a pint and we tried our hands at making butter! Many many many cranks later (and with a little help from the Kitchenaid in the end) we ended up with about a half-pint of gorgeous pure white butter.

Also, DH made yummy lemon ice cream by trading the vanilla pudding we usually put in with lemon pudding, and 1/4 tsp of lemon extract.
