Saturday Hunt - Misunderstanding
So, for the past week and maybe even two there's been a bit of water in front of my place and since it's been cold it's been very icy. You can tell it comes from two doors up the street. I was somewhat irritated, since at first it seemed like they were doing some construction and were just irresponsible to let so much water run off.
Thursday when I was home sick I hear a couple raps on my door. My 92 year old neighbor was checking in since my main door was ajar (I leave it open for the cat to look out - so much for energy savings since the outside one really insulates not at all). She also wanted to tell me news she had found out. The neighbor it turns out has a spring under her house, and water has been seeping into her basement and around the house - she so far has spent thousands to try and rectify it - and Thursday there were yet again people out there working on it.
So, I'm glad I didn't get too upset about my initial misunderstanding. It would have been bad karma.
BTW, thanks for the well wishes. Having had a migraine gave me license to take it easy yesterday - naps, movies, reading books, and minimal errands. Hopefully today is the last day of feeling a little out of kilter (end of my other sickness).
