Lots of things rolling along as we get closer to spring. Not water in our pond - nope, that's still empty, but we have hope for the repairs to happen in the next week or two, and then we'll be back in action. That's the thing about good dirt guys - ("dirt guys" being my nickname for guys who move dirt. For obvious reasons.) - anyway, the thing about good dirt guys is that they're in high demand and completely at the mercy of the weather. Which means you can never tell exactly when they're going to get to you. Like many things with a farm, having earth moving work done is a real test of your equanimity. Mine's still hanging in there for the time being.
Other things that require equanimity - farm trucks. The brakes on ours completely went out this week (which sounds like a problem you'd have in 1965 rather than 2017), and so Clifford had to take a ride to the mechanic. Bummer.
I did make some good progress on my knitted dress this week - kitting and baseball go together like peanut butter and jelly.
Steve's first birthday party was a hit. Sam made him a combination of his favorite foods - an apple stuffed with peanut butter and bacon, served with a side of dog biscuits. Steve knows how to party.
Afterwards Steve had to sleep it off. And just like lots of little kids, he was full of energy right until he fell asleep for his nap. In this case, while chewing on his bone.
