More Than I Ever Wanted To Learn About Water
The situation is very different here, in that, my family is responsible for their own water (we have a borehold). We do have access to municipal water, but that's just the secondary source. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when the pressure pump started acting up, tripping our main switch.
We had to turn it off, and while we still have access water ( from the municipal connection), we have to be extra prudent with it, as it has to support our household, keep especially vulnerable plants watered and water over 300 chickens.
So this morning has been about finding out what's wrong with the pressure pump and whether we can fix it ourselves (best option) or if i will have to call the guy who installed it to fix it (costing me money). That took a lot of time and was stressful, and in the end, we had to buy some parts.
I also spent some time visiting blogs I used to read regularly, but had stopped doing so in the past year. It was kinda sad to see that some people had stopped blogging. I hope that like me, it's only temporary.
I also published a new post on my vegetable gardening blog. I started the blog several years ago when i first started gardening.
I'm spending the afternoon slogging away on client work. It's slow but steady progress, so I'm not complaining.
