A Young Water Carrier
This is how I spend my days, even if I’m neither young nor so picturesque as this young lady.
Life has a tendency to send all those small nettlesome events your way, at the same time. So while I was struggling to get rid of a virus in my computer the electric pump in our well broke down. That happened Tuesday afternoon, just when I craved my afternoon tea. I’m glad we have plenty of snow right outside the door — it is easier to bring in snow for flushing the toilets and washing the dishes, than carrying buckets with tap water from my studio — that water I save for drinking and cooking.
Although I’ve managed to get rid of the virus, it did mess up some of the computers functions. I’m waiting for a friend to help me with that, until that is fixed I won’t use the computer a lot. It’s simply no fun to try to outwit a stubborn computer.
The good news is that my mother is doing fine, she’ll need some minor surgery, that’s all.
