Day Five of the Water Shortage

Well. A trickle of water. Not enough to flush toilets, run the dishwasher, or do laundry. And we are advised not to drink it. No school for the kids until further notice. I figure school will last until August at this rate.

Rain today, tomorrow, the next day...until next Monday. That ought to make the repairs go faster--NOT! Ah, well, a trickle is much better than a dry faucet, so we'll move on.

Yesterday, the house hunk was sitting on the side of the tub, refilling our water jugs with the trickle when he slipped off the side, into the tub. Then he compounded that bit by trying to set himself upright by pulling on the shelving unit over the toilet.

Um, the shelving unit has a bunch of baskets with various toiletries, razors, wash cloths, etc, etc, all of which ended up on the floor. And that made it so much easier for him to climb out of the tub, right?

A couple hours later things were cleaned up, the jugs were filled, and everything was settled down. Nothing like peace and quiet when you want to write.

Last night I had a chat over at Love Romances Cafe. Met some lovely ladies, had a chance to get reacquainted with some old friends, and some fellow authors dropped by and shared some excerpts. A nice time was had by all. I have one scheduled next month and I hope y'all will come by and join us!

Just in case you missed it, my FREE story, Larkspur, is now available from Ellora's Cave. It's one of the Naughty Nooners. For those who don't know, all the Naughty Nooners are free stories. If you've been wanting to check out an author with no risk, here's your chance! For the entire list click on the FREE READS on the left column of the home page.

That's it for today! Have a blessed day!

  2. any chance of collecting rain water for toilet flushing at least?

  3. What a damn mess! Hey, had fun at the chat last night, Anny.

  4. Are you putting every container you have out on the balcony to catch the rainwater?

  5. Your life is never boring, Anny.
