or how to survive without a shower and washing machine
We have water in the kitchen and in one bathroom — but unfortunately no water in the shower or in the laundry room. And we will most probably have to live with it until June, when it is possible to dig in the ground again.
I haven’t had the energy (or the will) to clean the kitchen yet —
all those men going in and out with dirty and wet shoes, left me with a floor that is dirtier than dirty. And to top it off there is a good sprinkle of sawdust everywhere.
Instead of indulging in domestic chores I’ve fled to Gutenberg, and made a new acquaintance, Dallas Lore Sharp. I understand that he was a well-known and popular author at his time, but I’d never heard of him before. Gutenberg has only two of his books, I began with “The Hills of Hingham”, and was hooked.
It makes me think of another favorite author E. B. White, and his essays.
Oh, I know that I have to tackle the kitchen — but I don’t have to think about it until I’m there!
