And On the Third Day...

...God said
"Let there be water"
and voila!
Our pipes un-froze and once again,
after three long days of frozen pipes and no shower, (ewwww)
we had running water!

 { from my recent photo shoot}

No more carting the wet stuff in, we're all set.....
(fingers crossed, another freeze coming next week)


can't hear you weatherman,
fingers in ears,

It's a bit of a mixed blessing, as we have a cracked pipe as a result of the freeze,
but all things considered, I'll take it.

Have a great weekend!
I know I'm going to, I FINALLY get to take a shower, woo hoo!!!

Sue said...

Funny how we don't know what we REALLY miss until we don't have it anymore. For example, running water? Hope your water continues to run "freely" the rest of this year!!

Take care, Sue

Shirley said...

Hi Anne, So glad that you got water again. Carrying the water reminded me when we had to go outside to the well with a bucket. In the winter months, we would heat it on the wood stove. I hope you are staying warm and dry. Have a great weekend. Your Missouri Friend.

Anne, so happy you have water! It sounds like things have been a tad rough lately! Blessings are right around the corner! Love your new header BTW.

trash talk said...

You mean you don't want to wash your hands, your face, your hair in Snow?
P.S. I guess this means no more handwriting lessons in the snow either, huh?

Dear Lillie said...

First - wow! What a week it has been for you! I read your previous two posts with Lillie on my lap and whenever I tried to comment she was adding her own words so I kept thinking I would come back on later to comment so you didn't wonder what all the gibberish was! Anyway, I can't even begin to imagine how horrifying the fire must have been but am so glad you are okay - and YAY for water again!!!!

Tammy said...

Hi Anne! I've been praying for you. Was so sorry to read about the fire,, the pipes ...the freezing temps!...Glad to read now that you are better and gettin a good hot shower!. LOl!
Have I told you take some awesome pictures! and I'm looking forward to reading more about YOU!!!! in your blog!
Have a great weekend sure deserve it!

Itchin' Stitchin' said...

YAY!!! I would take the longest shower ever! I love your new header by the way - so cute :)

Drawn to The Sea said...

A little color sneaking in... thoughts of spring, no doubt. Sorry for your trials, keep up the la-la's. They really do help ;-)

It's me said...

Happy weekend darling...i hope you have a great shower!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Megan Chamberlain said...

So glad that you are okay, thank goodness nothing too serious happened, one burst pipe you can deal with, especially if you can have a nice warm shower.
Hope all the other problems don't take too long to get fixed and don't cost to much.

Between Me and You said...

Yikes, that near-inferno must have been SO frightening! Frozen Pipes??I never imagine your weather to be the same as we get here somehow - welcome to my world!!Raging winds have been the order of the days this week!
Love your new header especially the little pic and your lacy dress - very pretty.
Have a stress-free weekend. x

The Rustic Victorian said...

Hi Anne,
You had me chuckeling with the lalala's. We in the south have had a taste of the northern weather whick seems to keep going, storm after storm. Global warming...??..humm...Well, I am glad your pipes are fixed, what a are you all moved in?
I love your new banner.
Stay warm!


Alice said...

Yay for running water and warm showers! Honestly I think I would have never made it as a pioneer woman with no running water, having to heat my bath water, and treking outside to us an outhouse. I'm so thankful for modern conveniences, and really miss them when they are gone. Thankfully we've had running water despite our below freezing temps. I'm so glad you have water now!

I love your new header!!!!!

Take care and stay warm!

Anonymous said...

Oh, Anne, these troubles aren't all in your new house, are they? Well, I'm glad the water's back on and running again!
Warm hugs,

Vintage Gal said...

Happy you have running water ~ what a simple pleasure ;-)

jo said...

Anne - If possible, keep a fan blowing on whatever pipes froze. Also, maybe you could keep a small stream of water running. Both of these ideas works - believe me!

" SHABBY JUNK" said...

Anne, hope all goes well with the pipes. Being without water had to be awful. judy

Jem said...

Anne I hope you had the most divine of showers!!! :-D

Also - I adore your new header, just charming!

Jem xXx

P.S - I have my fingers crossed you'll be frozen pipe free in the coming weeks!

Tins and Treasures said...

Good Morning, Anne,
I have been thinking about you often since I read the post about your fire last weekend. I was relieved to read that your family and pets are safe and your home was spared...but I'm sure it was very scarey.

And then no water?! Wow...I'm sure you are feeling ready for the move to your new home. Take care, my dear. Have a good weekend. ~Natalie

Ticking and Toile said...

You spread sunshine everyday girl!

It's amazing how easily we can take something like running water for granted... so glad you got your water back, Anne! Enjoy your shower and your weekend! :)
Jo said...

Hello Sweet Anne, so glad you have running water. Seriously it's the little things like taking a shower, right? Have a great water filled weekend.

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Joanna said...

Your blog header is so pretty!

Keeping my fingers crossed that good things happen for you soon.

Take care of yourself, Mr Twig and your furry babies.

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Hey Anne, now that you've gotten those three unfortunate incidents out of the way at the beginning of the year, it should be smooth sailing from here on out! :) Glad to hear you are faring well and keeping your face to the sunshine. Love your new header. And will look forward to hearing more about You, You, You! Best wishes, Tammy

bless your heart!

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

OMG Anne, I'm that girl that showers twice a day, yes I'm a strange one...I would freak out. Well, not really but that would be a bummer. I'm so glad you have water, sorry about the pipe!
OK your new header, I know I've been off for awhile but it's gorgeous!!! Stunning!!
PS Stay warm, I wont tell you what type of weather we are having now :(

Unknown said...

Glad you are finally able to take a shower.....and I love your image. Make me want to start gardening immediately. May I say that I just came back from Europe and one thing I did not like... the don't believe in snow plows. We were snowed in for almost two weeks. The airport closed, no train connection and people actually had to get off the train 3 miles out of Paris and walk the rest of the way. I was soo cold. Thanks for a great blog

pbrenner said...

I am happy to hear you're safe and sound after the fire - that must have been incredibly scary! We just got our water back today (off since Wed AM) - I must be not too far down the road from you (we're in the hill country near Wimberley) and I am so OVER winter already :-) Hope all goes well for y'all now ....

whimages said...

I've been thinking of you! I'm so glad that you only have one pipe cracked. I know even that is a pain (we just had this happen to us).

Lynn MacKerell @ Antiques for Today's Lifestyle said...

Anne, I just found your blog and I really love it. The ironstone pitcher drew me right in. I inherited one like it from my mother and I use it for seasonal flowers or greenery. I look forward to reading future posts.
