Progress! Progress! Progress!

So much has happened over the past week.  All of it equals progress on so many levels.  I only have a few minutes to write though.  I need to get out and milk, get the sheep down back, haul water for them and then get back and clean up to head for a hair appointment. […]

No planting done …
