Let's see, the month of August in a couple of sentences:
I came home from work Thursday night after I posted to the news that our well pump was not working.
Over the next week and a half, my dad helped me mess around with the cursed thing, buying parts, digging slit trenches in a typical Michigan August heat wave (heat plus high humidity) and eventually replacing both the pressure tank and the pump/motor itself, not to mention a whole lot of old connecting hose in the well pit.
All of this during the latest incredible hatch of mosquitoes.
This has really been a summer for them here, unbelievable numbers of mosquitoes swarming and whining around you so you can literally slap once and kill them five at a time. The ones that really get me are the little ones that fly under my glasses and bite me on the eyelid!
Last week was a week of catching up with mowing, laundry and dishes, and taking blissful hot showers, followed by a weekend at the Michigan Fiber Festival.
Now that I can pretend to have caught up, I'll try to sneak back to more regular posts!
