An Unearthed Appreciation for Water

Today I took a luxurious two minute shower, turning off the water while scrubbing with soap.

It was much needed after scraping mold and rat poo from the vintage trailer we are remodeling.

The other day we loaded around 150 gallons of water into the water tank, bucket by bucket by bucket, hand hoisted. That's not the usual routine, but we didn't have the water pump.

I thank the ground and the rain for every drop. And thanks to the monkey who invented pumps. It sure does take a hell of a lot longer to move water without them.
