We have a water well here, and the water is wonderful, the well is slow but steady, thank goodness. ( we had trouble with it awhile back, and had to "pull" the well, replace leathers, etc. quite the commotion ) I don't buy individual plastic water bottles at all, it makes me crazy when I see so many people buying huge flats of them, their carts are full. I can see the need for it if there's a dire emergency - tornado or hurricane warnings, etc. Here, we have the very occasional tornado warning, but other than that, I can see few reasons for buying so many. The occasional bottle, I can see, in a pinch. When we were having trouble with the well, I did buy a few of the large refillable types, and I would use those. I still have them stored, just in case. - that water well problem last year was actually a real pain in the butt, I guess you could say we were "fortunate" that it happened when there was snow on the ground since I would go out and bring in pails of snow to melt for flushing the toilet, and having good old fashioned sponge baths. I can hardly tell you how happy I was the day the well was back in service. I appreciate good water!
Favorite celestial object? The Moon. It endlessly fascinates me how much the moon affects everything. I sometimes even find myself kind of daydreaming about the moon and the tides, the moon is something I can almost feel.
Have you ever fantasized or wondered what it would be like to live in a converted barn, church, or other building originally used for some other purpose? ( I've always wanted to try out a lighthouse )
