If you read my sister's blog, you may already know this story. Let me fill in the details.
Tuesday night, my husband met up with some of his work friends and my daughter and I had to go to a performance at her school. My husband got home before us, and this is what he found:
Apparently, a hose that attaches to the toilet in my daughter's bathroom broke, and had been spraying water inside the house for...well, hours, we think.
Mostly it sprayed inside the linen closet, so all of our towels were drenched. But there were some other things being stored in that closet (storage is at a premium in our little house) - things like a vaio laptop and other electronic things that don't like water.
Yeah. Not good.
Outside this bathroom door is a shelf that is a pantry space for my kitchen. The bottom half got drenched. Mostly things are stored in plastic bins, but I had just bought a bag of whole wheat flour that I hadn't put in a bin yet...
and the bottom shelf was all books.
Well, I stayed home Wednesday and did 3 loads of laundry and threw lots of stuff out. Then I cleared off the kitchen table and stood about 25 books up so they could dry out. My husband is going to go get the wet/dry vac this afternoon and vacuum out the floor vent, which is full of water.
Lots of fun.
Luckily, my studio - which is next door - suffered no damage whatsoever.
Seeking comfort after a long, wet day, I decided to start a new crochet project. Like I have time.
I am NOT making this color. Imagine a rich, fuzzy teal yarn. Then imagine me working on the current quilt. That is gonna happen soon.
