Tuesday was a fun day. I kept Beck home from school due to him having a bit of a cold. The deal was he would do school work at home. In reality we spent most of the day outside, which for an almost 4-year old is actually a really good school day. We were scooping moldy sand out of his sand box and dumping it down the slope behind our house (too much rain this year) when the bucket we were carrying hit a sprinkler valve and broke it. Water started gushing out all over the back yard. Beck loved it!
It took me a while to figure out that that particular line was connected to the main house, not the irrigation line like the rest of the yard is. Of course! So at 11:30 am I had to shut off the water to the entire house and wait till Dave could come home to fix it.
I know millions of mothers all over the world make dinner for their children without any running water. I am not one of them. Sorry. At Beck’s request I ended up going to the grocery store and buying hot dogs. So for dinner on Tuesday we ate hot dogs, a can of baked beans, raw carrots, and potato chips. Then we went outside, dug a hole, and capped of an irrigation line. Beck loved it!
Last night I made lamb chops, steamed carrots and brown rice.
