It's been another one of those weeks — the kind I just can't seem to keep up with. It's been fast-paced and full of curveballs.
Take, for instance, the fact that every time the sewage company unexpectedly stops by to empty the septic tank I am expecting company. This law of the universe has never been broken.
Thank you, universe.
Hopefully you will never have to smell the phenomenon that is "moving the septic tank's 'nasty' through a hose to a large truck." It is enough to send me (and my guest) running out the house and flying down the hill to pastures with cleaner air.
The plus side of today's little septic tank surprise was watching the burly worker man get all his equipment set up. Well, the actual setting up of equipment was nothing to write home about, but the point when he stopped, set the hose down, pulled out his phone, and snapped a picture of one of my rose buds was. I basked in the poetic power of the moment.
In other news, my neighbor has done laundry every day for almost a week. This is a pattern. I know this because we live on the same property and share the washer and dryer in the garage.
My neighbor is a lovely woman married to a nice man. They have no kids. I'm trying to figure out the cause of these laundry marathons. Maybe they're dirt bikers? Or host weddings with loads of linens? Or have a persistent leak in their house that dirties piles and piles of towels? It's a mystery, and I'm determined to get to the bottom of it.
In other other news, I've discovered that seeing a picture of a cup of tea satisfies some deep part of my soul — the same part of my soul that actually drinking a cup of tea satisfies.
I think that's about all the wonderfully edifying and educationally stimulating thoughts I have for today. Boy, aren't you glad you stopped by? I am. :)
Happy Tuesday, friends.
