Happy Days Are Here Again


Dawn is breaking over Texas with the new moon refusing to give way.



Isn't this sky glorious?! There is a snap in the air.


Happy days are here again because I have water!! I am soooo excited. Three days without water is a real bummer. The dishwasher is running and the sink is filled with the overflow. Why we are even discussing whether or not to take a trip to Israel in April -- not that a vacation has anything to do with running water, but it is upbeat we are. Now, the question remains as to whether or not I will commit to getting on a plane. I'm upbeat, but not that upbeat and certainly am not crazy.

The plumber told me that he had 4 trucks running all day Saturday and into the night. He did not mention how many were on the road Friday, but they, too, worked until about 9 or 10 PM. Broken water lines were everywhere -- outside, inside, well houses, in walls and ceilings. Ok, you people in the North, laugh all you want. We don't know what to do when a real cold spell hits us. You should see us drive when there is ice or snow on the ground. lol

God is good and today is marvelous! Just think of all the things water does for you -- coffee, hot tea, wiping down counter tops, washing face, brushing teeth, baths -- you get the drift. It is good to do without a modern convenience every once in a while; you get an attitude adjustment.

Until next time, God bless.

It it amazing what modern conveniences we take for granted until we are without :) up here in the frigid north we deal with burst pipes all the time, but not usually a frozen water supply, yikes! glad to hear the water is back on and I hope your little goldfish is OK, they are resilient creatures. I hope Texas warms up soon! and us too! I could use some spring

So glad you have water again! I feel sorry for the ones that have to work in the cold repairing them, too. Normal weather is just around the bend... (hopefully)

Yayy! It's wonderful to have something you take for granted go away and then return. You can really see how much we count on things like water running out of the taps, and electricity... so glad for you.

Glad you have your water back. It is an awful experience losing it. Your potential trip to Israel sounds interesting. The plane part not to fun though.

I am so glad to hear you have water, we do take it for granted sometimes. The skies look amazing, the colors are gorgeous. I adore your new header.

Israel would be a wonderful trip, a really long flight, but a great experience.

GOD is good all the time! I can live without electricity but without water I will die!

BTW thanks for your thoughts and prayers for Dad, Lynn.

We had a big ice storm in our area last year and lost electricity for quite some time. Having no water is the pits.
