This morning I awoke to a wonderful treat. Very early this morning, while we were still fast asleep, the milkman came and delivered fresh milk and eggs to our house. I don't know how much more old-timey delight and whimsy could be packed into that sentence. Just typing it out made me want to squeal a little bit. Really, how fun is that? I have to thank Charlotte Fresh (via this article) for letting me in on this little info nugget that has already made my life exponentially better after just one delivery. Last night I was so excited to put out the metal milk cooler (which, to my knowledge, was left out for the milkman by my mother-in-law's family in Maryland when she was growing up) and this morning the first thing I did was run outside to gather the goods.
This morning, this is what I peeked out the front door and found...
Luke and I immediately ate some cheerios and banana with the fresh milk, which came from the Homestead Creamery in VA. It was delicious. Later on in the day, I drank a glass of the milk, and I haven't done that in over two years. The delivery service is provided by Lakeview Farms right down the road in Fort Mill, SC. My order came to $12.33, which included a quart of milk, a dozen brown eggs, a flat delivery rate of $3.00 and a $2.00 deposit for the glass milk bottle (I'll get it back when I return the bottle).
And with that, my week began quite well.
