One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

No Hot Water ~ Day 3

The heater we borrowed is not working.  We do have cold water in my utility room sink, so I can water the chickens and goats and so forth.  However, no hot water.  No cold (or hot) water at all to the washing machine.

Last night we heated water on the stove for washing dishes and washing up.

....just like camping.

I think I'm getting too old to "rough it" and with the RA I can't stand for my bones to get cold....they just ache. Are your pipes not buried deep enough or not enough insulation in your house? Do you know what's causing it? I hope you get it fixed soon and I admire your pioneer spirit!

camping...in the comfort of your home.
Hope things let up for you and your hubby is getting better and everyone is making the best of it.
