water where are you hiding

Saturday, January 11, 2014

Waking early in the morning to the sound of heavy rain falling is such a lovely feeling.
You snuggle back down deep under the warm blankets and plan to sleep a little longer or at least lay semi-awake, listening to the soothing sound.
Then you realize, this means, NO WALK!!!
I know some will say, what, why not? Just go walk in the rain. Maybe, but the track I walk on is slick when wet.
I walked day before yesterday and it was still pretty frozen hard, so it was easy to walk on, then yesterday after the thaw, it was slick in spots.
I dont know what this red coating paint type substance is they put over the track, but its a real waste.
Walking on the old concrete underneath is much safer.
But anyway, water water water. And we have none.
No one in my community has water, for miles and miles, if you are on the county water, you are dry!!!
I was luckier than some, I had water up until last night around 8pm.
Had walked yesterday, went to the tanning bed, came home and cleaned and took the dog out and had planned to shower later, then the water went down so low, I was afraid to use the hot water.
Throwed the breaker on the hot water heater and collected as much water in pots and pans as was able to and filled up my coffee pot for my morning coffee.

So, I guess my day will consist of sitting inside, checking the faucet from time to time, hoping for a trickle!!!
Got on the scale today, even though it isnt my regular weigh day, and I am the same, no change.
But overall, I am satisfied with the number.
It isnt as high as it was and I know if I keep walking and eating healthy, it will eventually creep back down.
One final thought, this puppy really needs a bath, wonder if shes saying the same about me???
