Water Water Everywhere
I love to have a bath! Nothing new there in life... I think it’s in the DNA! Michael has had maybe 4 baths since we have lived here, and we’ve been here for 5 ½ years. I think he’s afraid of all the stuff that surrounds the tub! :~) And I'm pretty sure he and the sponge had a fight once! (I don’t know who won)
Anyway baths are great! They make my knees feel better too! The heat really helps the arthritis. They make me relax and feel lovely and warm! I can say that I really appreciate a bath! There is a reason for the one though...
When I was young we didn’t have a bath for a while, in fact we didn’t even have water! From the time I was 8 years old to when I was 14, then off and on till I was 16. We didn’t have any running water.
My mom and dad bought a trailer house when I was 8. They didn’t have any place to set it down and a friend of my grandpa had a son... (Sorry it sounds confusing) that had several hundred acres and was having problems with people stealing things from the barn he had there. Sooooooo he said we could put the trailer there for free for awhile! The only thing was the well that was on the land wasn’t working. So my parents would have to have it repaired. It can cost so much money to fix a well but someone came out and said it would be 1500 dollars. Well (no pun intended!) my parents thought they would find another place to move to soon and they also didn’t think we would be allowed to stay very long.
They were wrong... the trailer was there for 8 years and never, did the water run!
My grandparents lived 2 miles away and that’s where I had my showers, washed my clothes, and filled plastic milk jugs with water to take back to the trailer. We would haul water every weekend, me and my dad. My mom didn’t go to my grandparents much.
It’s very bizarre to look back on it now... it seems so very foreign and impossible. But at the time it was normal to me.
I think I would love a bath anyway though!!!! :~)
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
