I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

That first shower was a delight. [In reply to] Can't Post

We had 2 hot water pots (wash cycle-rince cycle)and a wash cloth on the woodstove which is fun to a point and one does feel better, but that hot water deluge is pure joy.

Just using the coffee maker, by itself without pouring a potful of heated water into it s l o w l y is quite nice. Then there is the bucket 'n a half in the toilet tank.....

But that all works though, in a pinch.

Nope [In reply to] Can't Post

it was the electrical service (which is am quite relieved about). The oil furnace has always been just inside the back door.

I know a couple of fishermen [In reply to] Can't Post

who swear by burying the excess of the fish they catch (bones etc) in the garden, saying it's brilliant fertiliser. Personally I stick with compost and sheep pellets.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Well it's no fun [In reply to] Can't Post

when you move into a place that last housed a fisherman who followed that philosophy.
Honestly, every time I dug in the garden, up came a rancid fish carcass. Crazy

Oh no... [In reply to] Can't Post

Is it fixable, at all? Or replaceable? Unsure

It's not replicable [In reply to] Can't Post

But probably fixable! I even thought it should just stay in its box!Unsure

Perhaps it "was meant to be"?

Ew. [In reply to] Can't Post

My only nasty surprise was to find that the last occupant had buried razor blades in the garden - what a filthy thing to do. (But then this is the same person who returned six months later and tried to get into the house using keys he had taken with him - thankfully I had changed one of the two locks on the door.)

Now that is weird. What a good thing you changed the locks.

Glad you're ok, sil. [In reply to] Can't Post

And that you're family's ok too. Sounds like you went into the storm as well-prepared as you could be. Hang in there! If our experience here with the earthquakes is any indication, it'll be a long time before everything is back to near some semblance of normality for you and the areas around you. Recovery after a major disaster takes a LONG time! We'll be thinking about you!

Fixable is good :) [In reply to] Can't Post

Just leave it be for now... until you get everything else settled and can contemplate what you want to do.

As a grandparent who has given gifts that were lost/broken by g'kiddies... we really DO understand that things happen. Keeping the gift even in this broken state is very okay... because it shows that the gift really is cherished.

Thank you Ro for your concern [In reply to] Can't Post

We have been very fortunate compared to many others who lost loved ones or an entire home as down on the shores.
But the plan for all of us is still the same, which is 'one day at a time'.
