Or, more importantly, wash my hands
Every six months, or so, my building shuts off the water for most of the day, to perform some kind of needed repair to our somewhat temperamental plumbing system. The building was built in 1911 and though sturdy, it needs a lot of tweaks. Usually, a water shut down isn't a problem. On a regular Thursday I would have showered and made coffee before leaving for my 11:00 a.m. Weight Watchers group. Knowing that the water had been turned off until 4:00 p.m. I would have made a plan for the afternoon and returned in the afternoon to running water.
But this isn't usually. I was up after seven, showered and made coffee. I went to my Weight Watchers group via Zoom and then decided to have lunch. Eek! Most of the things I have needed some preparation, and the beginning of that preparation was running water. I thought of going down to get my mail from yesterday, but I would need to wash my hands after returning from my lobby. I took a portion of stew out of the freezer, heated it up and that was lunch. The dish can wait for the return of hot water to be rinsed. None of this is earth shattering, but it literally brought home to me that there are few things that are usual on March 26, 2020.
On a different note, welcome to my sink. I don't have a back splash in back of my sink, but a selection of my tile collection. My mother began the collection in 1966 with the purchase of the smaller blue and white tile in Delft. One of the other tiles she collected is at the far left and it's from a trip to Sturbridge Village, Massachusetts. To the right of the original Delft tile are tiles I bought in Curacao, Brazil and Greece. I use some of the tiles as trivets and others I enjoy in the kitchen. Is anyone else a tile collector?
That's my news for the day. Weight Watchers in the morning, blog visits and now to settle in with a book. I've also got decluttering on the schedule, and then some shredding. What have you done today that you especially enjoyed?
As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care of yourself. Much love and wash your hands!
