The Necessities of Life
As promised, here is a photo of the "sponge", you know the one I posted about over here. This post it note creation beauty is an origami menger sponge. I just don't know what my son will be doing with all of his free time now that the construction is finished.
Did you know we have snow? I hope to snap some photos later today, but yesterday it was so pretty to watch. Even though wet snows are the best for snowman making, dry snows are the prettiest to watch.
January first, on a brand new day of a brand new year found me early in the morning attempting to make coffee and crack open a journal with a new pen. Unfortunately, very very unfortunately, we had NO water. No water from our well system because the well pump decided to die. Yesterday the well pump was replaced and water was restored by mid afternoon.
So I bring you my gratitude list:
-for the company that answered my desperate call and came out on New Year's day to assess
-for the company that arrived at 7:30 a.m. yesterday to repair
-for friends who let us take showers and fill up every available jug for our drinking water for the day
-for our pool and all of those pesky chemical pool buckets that my husband fails to recycle-we had ample water to flush the toilets
-you know I like to get out of cooking but this was a tad too rustic of a reason
-for this list
-for humor because I could have cried without it
May your weekend be filled with running water, electricity, and heat :)
