Never a dull moment around here...
...Someone left the water running in the kitchen and forgot about it. How did this happen? Wellll. That certain person put a rubberband around the squeeze thingie on the water sprayer thingie and stuck it down in the rinse water, and caused me to lose my mind and use the word "thingie" too often.
The sprayer was under water so no one heard running water. We were all outside watching the wild turkeys anyway. And wondering why there is a yellowish-gray haze settling over us. You can see blue sky above it. It's probably cedar pollen, but then again I may just be paranoid!! ;o)
No less than 3" of water on the floor greeted me when I came in.
Water under and behind the fridge.
Ditto under the stove.
And in the pantry. Thank goodness for Mum and Alex who cleaned and organized the pantry and so there wasn't much on the floor that could be hurt by water.
At least it was WARM WATER!!! :o)
Now, there are loads of towels to wash.
OH. Did I mention I got the shock of my life when I pulled the stove out while standing in a puddle of water, barefoot? I'm not one to scream easily, but I must admit I screamed loudly. It hurt, darnit. And it brought back shocking memories of the Philippines where I got shocked many a time.
You might say things are a bit hectic around here.
There's a cold front blowing in hard.
There's one more pregnant goat just waiting for the most hectic moment of my life so that she can add to the chaos.
I think I better go start supper, and send someone to put the towels in the dryer.

Well, that is an innovative way to get your floors *really* clean!!! Hope the event was not too "shocking". :D

Ever figure out what the yellowish-gray haze was?
