Last week our well dried up and the new one didn’t come online until yesterday. I think that my blogging may be correlated into how clean I am feeling. For most of the week our water came from a water buffalo but we didn’t want to waste it. So we got conservative with our usage.
“If it’s yellow let it mellow. If it’s brown flush it down.” Yeah… we had to enact that rule.
For the first half the week I was taking a bath using two buckets, a cup and wash cloth. (Thank goodness, all this happened now and not in the dead of winter.) It didn’t faze me. Been doing that for summers on the farm and in the Phils. Near the end of the week when we realized that we would have plenty of water left before the new well was done, we were able to graduate to Navy showers.
So we’re good now. I still think that we should get the water tested to see if it is safe to drink though. Seriously, if you city folk tasted our water you’d be worried too.
