Last nite we thought that today we would both quilt and get some work done, now that this batch of hay was in.
so much for thinking……..
About 9pm, after we had both showered, we heard this waterfall sound coming from the laundry room. Not something you really want to hear, particularly when you arent doing laundry or running water.
A pipe that runs from the ceiling to the water heater broke. A main line. I ran to move stuff (like the laundry baskets of CLEAN clothes directly in the line of fire) and Steve ran to turn off the water main.
This morning he got the cold water partly turned on so we can at least flush the toilet. But we have to haul water to the cows since that shut off is affected too. We went to get a new hot water heater, plumbing supplies and pipes. Luckily, we had the BEST help at HomeDepot. Amazing man who knew his stuff. Dontcha love it when that happens? It is unexpected and makes a dreaded job less difficult.
Steve hates plumbing. But he has been sweet and working steadily to get it done. Hot water by midnite? Maybe. The wall, ceiling and floor are all clean there now too! That was my contribution. Well, that and KFC!
In the midst of all this commotion, the little girl from next door comes over asking me to fix her jeans. That is NOT a job i like to do. I do quilts, not clothes. Not mending. Not hemming. But for this family, (Steve’s niece’s kids) I often do fix school clothes. One kid is way overweight, the other is very skinny. So finding things to fit them is a problem. I told her to come back in an hour. That was 4 hours ago and she hasnt come back. Maybe the state of our house scared her! (I can hope, right?)
I quilted this afternoon. Sorry, no pics yet.
