I came home prepared to try making Muenster cheese, but after I fed the dogs, the cats, the chickens and myself, then read the cheesemaking directions, I realized I'd be up to midnight if I started tonight.
I feel, as Kate wrote in a recent comment, like I've been trying something new virtually every day. I'm OK with that. I'm a bit of an explorer; instead of exploring the country or the world these days, I'm exploring new things from here. The catch is that first tries are not usually resounding successes, in work or in life. I don't really expect this to be any different.
The cool thing is that now that this first try is almost over, I can move on to the second try. And second tries are often much better than first tries! Prost!
