Hello Folks ~ Thank you all for your kind thoughts about my water woes. My dear BIL Todd will be here Sat. morning to work on installing a new faucet, working on the leak under the house, and doing body work on my van roof, as last week we saw ‘why’ water had come into my van during a heavy rain I was driving in. A hole in my roof and one about to happen. So, he’ll do some grinding, and bondo work on the places. Bless his heart. He’s like my dear husband in that he can do so many different things, and I am very thankful for all of his help since losing my DH almost three years ago, (9th of Dec. 2012).
I’ve got containers filled with water for filling sink and basin for washing dishes, for sponge baths and for flushing the toilet. I am camping out this week and hopefully the leak will be fixable by Todd and we won’t have to call in a plumber. Keep him in your prayers Sat. as he does all of this work for me. He lives a little over an hour away and works full time, so I really appreciate his time and efforts.
I’ve been researching kitchen faucets, was getting frustrated looking and reading about them. Finally found one online that was in stock at my local HD. I wanted a high arc, 360 degree turn of faucet, a metal body and ceramic valves. They had some online but not in the store, they could be shipped to store, but it might not get here until after Todd would be here. I kept looking and found a Pfitzer that they had three of in my store. I went there this morning with my printed out paper in hand, found it, but really hated the idea of spending $98. As I was standing there looking at the faucets on the wall, I spied one in the same pattern by the same company, and it was $78, in chrome finish, instead of stainless steel finish. They didn’t even have the cheaper version listed on the website at all. Needless to say, I bought the $78 one. I went through the garden dept. on the way out, was tempted, but not enough to buy something I don’t really NEED. Here’s my new faucet in the box. I’ll show it installed later.
I’m trying to learn how to use my smart phone camera, how to text, etc. I feel like such a dunce. Miss Rosie and I have been visiting in the screened porch off the kitchen and today I decided to take some selfies so you can see how cute she is. She really is a dear.
She is such a sweetie pie. She and I are bonding. I slouch in the chair and she lounges on my chest while I pet her, rub her tummy, kiss her. It’s hard to take selfies and I’m not crazy about them, but I am who I am and it’s Miss Rosie I am showcasing.
These next pics were taken with my Canon PowerShot A650 IS.
She heard me washing dishes, so got up on the covered trash can space just outside the window over sink. This is where Miss Tork hung out too.
Here is Miss Tork in June of 2008, she didn’t become an indoor kitty until after I lost my DH, so sometime in 2013 she moved inside where she keeps me company. She’s been a real comfort to me.
Now here we have Miss Rosie on the last day of Nov. 2015
This cracks me up. She was meowing but looks like a really mean Halloween Cat.
I just happened to catch her with her mouth open. Miss Tork did and Miss Rosie does, rub against the window.
Well, It’s about time for me to go get horizontal to read before sleep.
Tomorrow I’ll be trying my hand at washing my hair in a basin with a pitcher of water. My hair is long so I’ll see how that goes. One thing about experiences like this, having to do without, is that you appreciate so much more the everyday conveniences we have. I look forward to hot showers once again. For now I’m sponge bathing while I camp out.
Goodnight and rest knowing God is watching over you while you sleep.
