At 7. a.m. I checked into my messages – Vida had a bit of an emergency and had to cancel. Hmmm.
Plan B was to take the dogs somewhere else. But first, a load or two of laundry. After all, it was early – no problem fitting all that in.
And then as the first load of laundry was going through its last rinse cycle the motor on the washing machine blew. Hmmmm.
Plan C: wring out all the laundry while Simon strung up a clothesline (Bonus! I now have a clothesline!!!) and take the next two loads of wash to the laundromat while putting an ad in on the local websites “ISO – washing machine!”
And so I put the laundry into machines and took Abby for a nice walk by the creek for half an hour. Then back home to dry it all. And while Simon headed to Nakusp to pick up a new window for the basement bedroom, I went out into the garden (nap first, of course). It all turned into a domestic day – and I suppose that counts as Plans D through G.
The dogs had bones; I weeded and watered; Simon painted the sheathing and is installing the window.
Tomorrow – I promise myself a long hike tomorrow.
