The hat turned out great!


I remember one year we were without power for 9 days because of an ice storm and I cooked and boiled water for baths on our wood stove. At first we pretended with the kids that we were on a camp out and pulled out the camp stove and lanterns...lot of fun. Then we had to depend on the wood stove...at least we had food, heat and bath water.


UGH! At least you can take showers, but I know how quickly dirty clothes pile up. Hope you can get it resolved soon.

That hat is cute! You're so sweet to do it for a gift. :)


Wow-that’s great Judy. Amy does have great ideas to simplify. Good ideas we can all benefit from. Love that baby hat--it is too cute. Hang in there-hope the well guy comes when he is supposed to :)

That hat is so cute! I hope we get to see a picture of the baby wearing it someday.

Sounds like you might be living off grid whether you like it or not if you don't get that pump fixed. Hope it is soon.


Well, if anyone can do it, I'm sure you can, Judy! :)

Sweet little baby hat. I just finished a pair of mitts with a similiar flower attached, and am knitting a new pair for my friend's 8 year old daughter's birthday.


Love that little baby hat. So sweet. I don't know about living without water...hmmmm.


I don't even like to think about being without water...or sewage service...I haven't told it yet on my blog..not sure I am going to. But last week, we had sewage problems, or I guess I should say the city had sewage problems. We went about 36 hours where we hardly used any water. It was during the first days of all the ice, the city could not get their truck started.

It really made me think what it would have been like before inside plumbing.

    There is so much that I want to do, but there is just not enough time in the day to do everything, so I have to pick and choose, and I try to live each day in the present, life is so much nicer if you do.
