Musings about writing, being a freelance editor, and life in general, with healthy doses of humor and unapologetic acts of silliness.

Water! Water! My Kingdom for Water!
It's January. It's winter. My water is frozen yet again. Frozen because the water tank for my well is exposed to the elements, thanks to a renovation project that should have been finished last summer.
Previously, that water tank was housed in an insulated shed. The shed had to be torn down and the tank moved due to the renovation. I told the carpenter that the new shed had to be built before winter, to avoid my having to deal without water every time it froze outside. Alas, the shed never got built, so I am at the mercy of the weather.
But not for long. I am going to build the shed myself, once I figure out what shed design the carpenter had in mind. He had built a concrete platform, and moved the tank onto it, then bolted down two studs for starters, but that's all. I'll be buying lumber on Sunday to get started, and pray it doesn't freeze or rain!
I'm retired from freelance editing and living the good life. I love not working for a living! I live on a small farm in rural western Washington State where I reside with my dogs, cats, and horses. I have a warped sense of humor and I'm joyously silly most of the time.
