A Good Day
Hey, Dad! Let's play some ball.
After two days of rain, the sun is out; the grass is turning green and we feel ready to play!
This morning began with the ground fog burning off. The line of trees and fog is by the river.
After another scare,( for me), being alone with Dave, he had a low sugar episode. June got home in time to get him straightened around. I apparently did some things right. Now the Patriarch of the house is feeling and eating well. Yesterday he shared his memories of working in the logging camp with horses and cross cut saws and axes.
Two of my female cats had kitten. One only had two. The other, had hers somewhere by the shed. I have not found them yet. I am not sure this is good news as I already have seven cats. They are cute. Softy me cannot drown them, so I am stuck with them.
The best news is I finally got my water back on. What a luxury running water is. I have been hauling water for three months. I had to buy a new pump and wait until the ice shelf at the edge of the river melted so I could recover the jet and foot valve. It took over a weeks work, on and off, trying this and trying that to get the jet pump to pump water. They are tricky. a little air leak or fleck of dirt in the jet will prevent them from working. Mysteriously, and at the point I was about to give up and haul the new pump out to have it tested for a fault, the pressure built and delivered water to the house. This morning I got up and did three loads of laundry and took a shower, (Oh so needed!!!) With the sun shining and the people and animals content, IT IS A GOOD DAY!
