All Washed Up

A hot summer August day, working up a sweat, running here and there. We are drinking water, running water, using water constantly all day.

Trent's home. He's got a dirty truck, with a truck load of dirty laundry.
He's washing his truck inside and out. And I'm washing the laundry.

Molly also dropped by with Jennifer. She needs a bath, too. So in the tub she goes. She comes out so clean, fluffy, and smelly good!
We gotta eat you know. Then there's a sink of dirty dishes to wash.

Stop and think how much water a household uses in one day. It's just non stop, if you are actually doing something around the house. Our water is not measured by a water bill. We have a private water well. So I feel like "free" water all day. Even though Larry tells me it cost electricity to run the pump, that pulls the water from the ground, that fills the water tank that supplies the kitchen and the bathroom and the outside faucets. Ok, don't use the water unnecessary is the moral to this.

But, with the 3 hurricanes swirling out there, we should definitely have no shortage of water in the ground.

Looks like ya'll had a good Saturday! Lot of work went on during the visit :-) That's interesting about the water - you are correct- H20 is consumed more than we realize!

I wish we had well water too. I grew up on it and really miss it!

We have a well, too, and after the 6 weeks of rain we had earlier this summer, I can't imagine we'll EVER run out!

I always enjoy your music! Anyway, Jennifer looks great. Congrats on the apartment. We are about to get city water, we are really excited! This means no more yellow things...we have lots of iron in our water.
