This week in pictures

All right-we're going to start with the ugly

Yep, that's water , and old pipe, our barn floor and manure-The pipe burst somewhere underground and it took us a while to figure out what was going on because it was all under manure in the barn!!!!!!!

Dan broke away part of the cement floor and found where that pipe started in order to tap it off. (Everything was encased in the concrete-at least it was pipe and concrete from the 30's, so it broke away fairly easily) The pipe ended up being a foot and a half underground-it is probably that way outside the barn as well and it is amazing that we haven't had pipes burst down there. Oh well, maybe someday we'll replace everything, but there's too much else to do.

This is the pipe Dan had to cut in order to tap everything off. (We had the water shut off from our cistern, but there isn't a real shut off valve. Water still leaked.)

Now, for the beautiful

Sunday, we had lunch on the deck and it has been wonderful weather for being outside.

The ever so cute Dakota.

And . . . . . . . .

Cherry blossom sock and worsted weight yarn from Sundara! I just got it yesterday in the mail and am very excited to do something with it. I am hoping to make some knee high socks for me and a February baby sweater. I know a bunch of people that are about to have babies and one of them should end up having a girl. Don't worry, I'm still working on the mittens and should finish them, maybe.

P.S. Can you tell that I brought home my dad's fancy camera last night? Mmmmm . . . those some goooood pic's and I'll have more to show you another day.

I was about to ask what type of camera you were using, the pictures are nice and sharp.

The Sundara yarn is gorgeous! Just gorgeous!
