Slow down and take life as it comes today, or you could take on more than you can handle. You could also miss a chance to win somebody over. So concentrate on what is happening in the here and now, instead of trying to conquer new horizons. You will have ample opportunity, and sooner than you think, to spread your wings. Meanwhile, what you need may well lie close at hand.
Boy - did I slow down! Here's how it came today: Got up and turned on the shower to discover there was no hot water. Sure enough, the 8 year old water heater (guaranteed for 6 years)was leaking like mad all over the basement floor. Why does this never happen in the warm weather? We replaced the original water heater in 2002 -- (they built the place in 1989 - so water heaters lasted longer then: shocker!) and I remember the plumber saying, as he pointed to the new tank, " Here's your new fur coat."
Well, its replacement arrived today.
Of course, several things had to be brought up to code. And then there was the water filter faucet that has been leaking since last week: a new one is on its way and I imagine that the plumber's bill for installing it will be worth at least a pair of mink-lined boots.
What did I do to offend the water gods??
By now- which is already today -- I have given up on writing more. I thought that once we had hot water the rest of the day would be fascinating enough to write about. Wrong again. I did paperwork all afternoon and tonight I really did sew! Therapy sewing - just doing, not thinking. And then I finished the book I was reading. And now I am going to bed and look forward to a HOT shower tomorrow morning.
