“There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.” —Jane Austen

Except when you need to get out for a change of scenery. Just now and again.

Houses here have water tanks in the attic. We contracted to have ours cleaned Sat. The scare is that the water is now unfit to drink or use on the body, since our tank is disintegrating. Our contract guy is going to pull water in directly from the street on Tues. Which means no showers until then, just buckets and pans of water from the one outside tap that comes directly from the street.

Remember the line “Water, water, and nary a drop to drink”? Here at my house now it’s “Food, food, and nary a bite to eat”!

Missus and I took time to unwind last night before bedtime, slept well and late, after long trip home. Day spent mostly with son and family. Good down time.
